An Unseen Hand

the_handrWe humans are so busy trying to control our lives that we can easily forget that the universe has been been in process for 15 billion or so years and is unfolding just fine, thanks. Still, the need for us to let go in ourselves requires that we put our faith and trust in something else. And that something else can be the unseen hand that is orchestrating what is unfolding according to plan. As we have noted before, to surrender may feel like a risk, but if we surrender to what is universal we will cede our need to control to that which is actually in control.

John: The reason I’m saying this is that there is this hiddenness, a quality of acceptance, that actually does deal with something that is an opium of the masses in the sense of faith, trust and faith. In other words, trust and faith, at a high principle, really means that you have a connection trust flow intertwining, even though you can’t put your finger on it completely, with what is unfolding about you – and do not have to bifurcate that with your impressions in terms of what you see, in terms of how things are.

So in my meditation dream, I’ve come across a group that has been fundraising. They’re doing things in the outer to try to make something happen differently. I have my doubts, initially, about what they are trying to do. I like the idea, but I’m not ready to go in there yet, in other words, to actually participate with them.

I can observe what they’re doing but I’m not going to join them, or support them, because it seems maybe a little bit disconnected or something. Whatever it is, I won’t do it; but I’m intrigued by all of this, so the next day I go over to where they are disbursing what they have accumulated. In other words, they’ve taken things in as part of the fundraising, then to distribute outwardly.

And this is the kind of fundraising that involves making an intertwined connection, in other words, what you take in, then you have to find the correspondence of that in terms of how you give it out. And, to my surprise, they’re able to distribute everything. In other words, it’s a booming kind of business success in that regard because they are getting rid of everything, and I’m impressed, but I still can’t be with them yet. In other words, it looks like they’re in the process of getting rid of everything, but I can’t be with them yet because they haven’t actually fully gotten rid of everything.

And I can only join them after they have disposed of all that they have, all that there is there, that they have touched, taken in, and now need to intertwine. What they are doing, though, is something I hadn’t thought to be possible. But, from what I see, their long and hard efforts are paying off, and what they have done is being supported. In other words, it’s coming together on every level, in other words, on all these various levels, because certain things go to some and other things go to others. In other words, there’s a cadence or rhythm. This is something I wouldn’t have believed if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes.

The meaning is, is I am recognizing the need to be free of everything that burdens and weighs life down. In other words, it’s how the outer is. There’s so much there. These things that are everywhere in the environment, in the collective, are such an arduous burden that it’s very easy to conclude and to expect that it can never end. You’re always affected in a plane like this by something, energetically or magnetically.

Because what I see is something I do not sincerely believe is able to become empty, that’s how I initially see this. And then I’m surprised to see it looking like it’s going to be so – which gives me a sense of great enthusiasm and encouragement, and pulls me in in terms of wanting to support it, but when it remains in all this bifurcated mannerisms, I remain on the sidelines unable to commit.

I took note of the efforts and watched the process unfold, but with reservations, that I couldn’t let go of for a long time, until I could see that it had reached a particular threshold. To my surprise, I am seeing that the process is working. The barriers are falling away. What they’re doing makes sense, and I am thereby going to be able to connect with a freshness that is open and receptive to whatever there is that needs to unfold through us – because that makes a oneness now, or coming together.

The deeper meaning is, although the process I face is full of doubts, which hold the unfoldment back, when this falls away what arises is a connected flow that embraces and embodies life. In other words, you could say that it’s like an image of being a beingness able to come together as one to embrace life anew.

But then if you have to pause because there’s something more going on, because you wouldn’t have noticed this if you were just dwelling with kind of trying to see and adhering to a focus and attention that is aligned with something that has this way of being in an all knowing capacity, because you’re never, at least not for the longest, longest, longest time, in an all knowing capacity, unless you’re God. So the most distinguishing feature is a trust and faith as if in an unseen hand.

Consequently, what is able to come together, when it is like that, is something that can be shaped and designed free of self limiting stigmas. And then, as an afterthought, I wouldn’t have believed this if I hadn’t seen it unfold. This has gone beyond my endeavors of trying to make sense of it all. All I can say about this feature is that behind it all was a faith and trust, so to speak, praying in a bigger plan residing outside of our, my, need to know. That’s the meditation dream.

The Age We Live In

looking-into-the-futureAn important idea is being put forth here: we must stop trying to fix things from an old viewpoint because it won’t work. We need to look at things in a new way, a way that includes all people, all flora, all fauna, the planet herself and everything that happens. We have to act from an understanding of how everything is part of everything else. That’s real religion and spirituality. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So I am finding that there are people who need to hold onto some level of spiritual understanding that they have, and if you question or challenge their spiritual understanding that they have you’re asking for holy terror.

And thus you see that in our attempt to become more conscious, and in our attempt to become more real we ultimately end up, over and over and over again, purging something. It’s a purging into the various notes of things, and then from those notes something is lost. And then that which is lost, when it is touched that which is touched then or seen or recognized, is seen then as a threat to any of those notes per se. And so how is that able to cope?

You have to break out in an all-inclusiveness – and that hasn’t been done before. Apparently. In other words, over thousands and thousands and thousands of years what’s arisen has been the evolution of things. You’ve had Lao Tzu, you’ve had Buddha, you had Mohammed, you had Krishna, you had Ram, you had Christ, you had Moses, and Abraham. On and on and on you could go, and each of them brought something in that caused something to take steps.

But now what’s called for is the pulling together of all of it. And we live at a point in time when the pulling together of all of this just does not seem to be possible. Like for example in the outer you see things more broken than ever before. You can see people living under a kind of oppression as if the data and big brother of things is overwhelming them. And therefore they cannot find a calmness, or quietness.

I see this no matter how I look. If I look at congress it’s busted, too. All systems seem to be busted. Why are they busted? It is because there is a rejection of this versus that, going on constantly, instead of an inclusiveness.

There’s no inclusiveness. This idea of inclusiveness has gotten lost in the world. It’s lost no matter which direction you look at it from. All of this has got to let go in order for there to be a coming together of an intertwinement, so that what happens happens in a proper inner and outer wholeness. Or otherwise you’re always going to have these tangential natures.

Consciousness has gotten to the point where it can see all the tangential natures. You know, if you’re talking the world stage you can say how Europe is, sees how the United States is, it sees how China is – so that nothing can go except in circles.

This is what keeps things from ever coming together, because every little note can see every other little note and until it all is able to go, poof! and be all inclusive, you’re going to continue to have this quality in which a breakdown of overwhelm is going to predominate.

So whenever you feel the vibe of an overwhelm just know that the feeling that there is something that is overwhelming to you is implicative of you not letting go in some capacity.

And this quality of not being able to let go in this capacity or that capacity permeates the outer right now, and requires this huge step forward in terms of an intertwinement that will lead then to an instantaneousness that is capable of taking in, and accounting for, and working with everything that’s unfolding in the age that we live in.

And that’s what’s so fascinating about right now. And even though there are teachers and people that are here that are saying this is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful time to be alive because this is a time of a shift and a change, because everything is speeded up. And you’ve got various projections that you can look at in terms of like Mayan prophecies and whatnot that have to do with how time is doubling, and going at this pace and that pace faster and faster and faster and faster, and the whole implication is this is coming to an amazing crescendo in some fashion.

And then you have this whole talk about how wonderful this possibility is. Okay, it’s only wonderful if you can somehow or another let go to it – and that‘s the challenge. And any complaining means that you’re not doing it, because there is no “personal” that one can cotton to anymore.

That’s what we’re shifting into. And so when things happen, they just happen, and they happen in a wonderful way. And it can become an all-inclusiveness if it’s accepted and embraced, if it’s accepted and embraced.

But who accepts and embraces in a oneness? Who sees themselves in the eyes of others and others in their eyes as one and the same? Who can do this? And until one does this, you’re going to have these separate notes. You’re going to have these distinctions.

Horrible. And, of course, the only way you know that it’s horrible is when you are able to fall into the stillness. Otherwise, you don’t know the problem. But when you fall into this emptiness, this quality of a letting go, that’s when you see the other for what it is. Until then you don’t see it. Until then you are still acting as if there is something going on.

And that’s why it is very, very difficult to talk about things or to discuss things or to propose things. But I know that this alignment step has to happen first, and it’s imperative that I put myself into it, somehow, not even knowing what I’m putting myself into as the alignment necessarily.

At some particular point it’s a total letting go, or otherwise you just throw your hands up in the air and you’re in the amnesia.

He Who Hesitates

intuition-736A human being is much more than a brain and a body. We have intuitions and sensitivities that get processed much faster that our brain can compute. We can see these processes at work in certain successful people, but the reality is that we are all capable of such excellence. Unfortunately our brain tends to override these more subtle indicators, but we can learn again to listen to our systems – which truly know a lot more and can do a lot more than we give them credit for. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: If you look at what makes up the human being, a human being is the composite of everything, they have the angelic in them, they have the jinn world inside of them where their traits and characteristics kind of come about, they have the devil quality, they have all of this inside of them.

And they have to incorporate all parts, the raw energy, the angelic part, they have to incorporate all parts in order for there to be a wholeness. All the notes have to come together and, when they come together, they actually come together in something that is like a type of magic.

What do I mean by that? Well, it’s like using the example of this doctor where he could take and automatically do all of these thousands of operations, of which a good operation has a 70% likelihood of success, and he can do thousands of these and never have one go wrong because he has an instantaneous knowingness. This is something that’s impossible to catch up with mentally or with the mind/senses. It has to be natural to you.

It caused me to wonder a few days ago about the fact that I can get into this motif where I can back up and then drive forward lickety-split and miss hitting something by a quarter or a half of an inch, and do it over and over and over again. Now I am not doing the math or the chemistry or the this, that, or the other. I just feel it. It’s just a knowingness sense that enables me to do this – because I just do it.

And Michael Jordan, for example, when he shoots a basketball you know, when he gets in the zone how do you explain because he knows the ball is going in every time he shoots it, whether it’s half court or wherever he shoots it from because he feels it in the bones. That’s not something that you catch up with the mind/senses. That’s something that you just suddenly get… they call it the zone or whatever, you just kind of get into.

Well, this is extremely important now, and it comes about when you include everything, when you include everything. But if you take some bifurcation and you try to run that up the flagpole you’re going to have high level of accentuation, and a truth in relationship to that, and all of these different paths are going to all point to the same thing – but they’re not going to be able to get there in a time in which we live because they will be excluding something that is now activated and unfolding in the process of the overall. And it will make things flat if you try to stay on a particular schematic.

For example, using science to try to portray this, I don’t know if the statement in science is necessarily true, it was a statement that was made by Sysco at the CES Conference in Vegas, and the statement was is that we live in a point in time in which everything that has been at the fingertips and access of man since the inception of time up to the year 2003, is now something that we have to cope with on a day-to-day level. In other words, up to the year 2003 is one thing and now speeding that up it is in terms of coping on a day-to-day level something so, so much more.

So if it’s so, so, so much more, how are you going to do it? Well, I don’t think you’re going to do it in any kind of bifurcated highly accentuated aspect of a delineation. I think you’re going to have to have an all-inclusiveness that puts you into a state that’s a little bit like magic, in that you have a connection to a stillness which incorporates and takes into account that whole reflective outer. Because this reflective outer is now said to have access data that is a “1,” and the human brain that works with sense and mind matter is at 1.7, and this “1” is slated to double to a 2 in the next 2-5 years. And the question, then, is how is a human being going to cope because they will be out of space?

They’re going to be able to cope because that which is reflecting in the outer is reflecting in the outer because the human being has access, on the inner, to all of that from which it sources but they access in what would be considered a magical way because they include and connect with everything that exists vibrationally – not something in some bifurcated way that gets limited to its mind/sense matter of things.

And so when you connect to something that isn’t bifurcated in some sort of mind/sense matter of things, you have this automatic-ness where, for example, this dental brain surgeon can take and open a person up and do operations with 70% success and do 1,300 of them and never have a problem, ever. And, in fact, that knowness can be so acute that it has a confidence of the sight, that comes from who knows where, so that nothing can surprise it, nothing can surprise it. Unbelievable, because it just has that instantaneous knowingness acuity.

There’s a movie called Chasing Mavericks, and what it’s about is defying common sense in terms of being able to ride one of these waves that come in that are 30, 35, 40 feet high, because if you don’t do it correctly you’re going to get smashed, a 1,000 tons of water is going to come pounding down on you or however that is. And so the point of the movie is that you have to hold a presence inside of yourself that doesn’t panic; that is in another zone.

And so the movie goes and starts teaching the traits, little by little by little, of which this is the big one in the end. This is the one that enables you to defy the law of physics, so to speak, or the data, or the outer. This is what makes what others would look at and say is impossible, possible and enables that possibility to happen over and over and over again.

It’s a sense that you have. It’s a sense that comes over you. It’s a sense that comes over me when I can drive a vehicle to the inch and do it without any hesitation. If I hesitate, I can’t do that. If I think about that, I cannot do that. But if I just blank out, I can do it. If I’m not thinking about it, I’m just in a flow and totally letting go and still about it, I can do it.

This is what has to occur now – meaning that one has to have an inclusiveness that takes into account this greater motif of an overall beingness.
