A Basic Nature

imag00303esIn the midst of the idea of letting go, we can get confronted by the question of what parts of one’s self are actually the true parts, the parts we want to keep? This dream looks at this question, and the answer would likely be slightly different for every one of us, but it touches upon the concept that there are basic natures that we should hold onto, that without which we would be straying from who we really are. As we delve deeper, these are the questions that give us pause. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Last night I had a number of long dreams, but they were all kind of murky with a lot of people, so they were hard to pull out many details.

One of the earliest ones, it felt like I was going back and forth to some place in the mountains, a little town there. Once I got there I wanted to go back out and go hiking, and a friend joined me. And I remember I had a car parked in front of a house, and she’d come with a kitten so we were going to leave the kitten with my car while we went hiking.

And that was the strongest thing I remembered of that dream.

John: Well, the idea of being able to go back and forth in the mountains is an image that I wouldn’t be able to have, because I would always get twisted and lost, because I don’t have a proper schematic of whereabouts in terms of my spirit energy in manifestation – but you do. You do.

But what you don’t have is a certain sense of… well, the cat energy of a certain quality that you need from the kitten in order to be able to, you know, stretch out. In other words, you can’t go and solve any problems like going hiking up into the mountains. You can’t get very far away from the car because there is something about the energy that you need in relationship to the kitten.

So, what it is is an interesting dream that basically starts with what it is that is natural for you. It’s unnatural for me, but natural for you, that you know your north, south, east, and west, that you can go back and forth and back and forth.

But what you can’t do is probe out very well, which is the trait that the masculine does that’s able to try to shake things through, and understand something from on high or whatever, which on an energetic level for the feminine, is like it has to do more with a different aspect of the breath. It’s more the in-breath, where the masculine would have the sense of something coming down into manifestation and the spirit energy coming into matter.

For the feminine it would have to do with the fact that it can move around, meaning that the spirit energy could venture forth from its moving around and familiarity in manifestation. It could move around, and it could hike, or go through obstacles. But the dream is indicating that there is a dilemma in terms of leaving your car, or leaving that spatiality, and it has something to do with a relatability and an intertwining that is getting left behind.

When you do that, and that is symbolized by the kitten, I don’t want to venture to guess what that is, other than to say that there’s something about the kitten that is important in terms of the ability to reach out into, or to probe out. In other words, the ability to take and have something more than just being in matter and able to flow in manifestation knowing your bearings, but that where you go askew is when you try to probe away from that basic quality nature. Isn’t that interesting?

32e8How do things happen in the universe? Well, many things happen the same way they do between individuals: through agreement. The masculine and feminine principles need to work together, but they can’t do it any old way. The masculine has to make itself right for the feminine for an acceptance to take place. Throughout life there are rules of engagement. We can see that in dealing with people, but can we see that as we try to engage with the universe? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The other dream I had, as best I remember it, everybody seems to be more masculine in that dream. And it feels like, in this case, the masculine is trying to get into a country and he thinks it’s almost like either he can if not sneak in, there’s a room he opens and maybe there’s something in there that will get him like a pass into the country.

You know it might be like maybe you could do something like draw something in a lottery, but someone comes and says he has to go through this process instead to get into the country.

That’s the best way to summarize the dream. He might be able to get it passed with a draw, but he does have to go through the process to get into the country.

John: So what you dreamt is you dreamt it opposite than what I dreamt. In other words, I started off dreaming the masculine, and then I saw and looked at the feminine. You started off dreaming the feminine, then you took and you looked at how it is for the masculine, where he’s coming into a place.

You have to deal with how manifestation is, how ego is, how raw energy is that’s not grounded and not here. You have to get it codified, or accepted, or embraced. You have to become subtle enough so that you’re not a jeopardy, or a threat, to how it is that manifestation is – and that’s how, then, something is able to shift.

Now what is really, really interesting about this is when you start to look at those two things going on you could draw, let’s say, a philosophical spiritual question here, in which you take and you see things that are out of whack in manifestation, that seem impossible to rectify, and you can see a masculine energy in its raw state of just peering into this sort of thing before it can be codified into an even flow with it all, until it can become subtle enough so that it becomes a part of manifestation so that something can change or shift.

You can see this peering in, and you can see it having an attitude, or a reaction, and seeing that everything looks fairly hopeless because what is embraced in manifestation, or the feminine aspect of manifestation that has become polluted or contaminated in some sense, is set and changes very, very, very slowly. And so you want to smack it, or you want to do this, that, or the other to get it to snap out of it because as the raw energy starts to transform, or looks to transform, and looks to be absorbed into manifestation, how is this possible when it knows that manifestation is on a dire course?

And that it is being upheld by an aspect of the feminine energy in a set way, in an unchangeable way. And then the idea that the masculine is going to come down and allow something to come of all of this? Well, it has to be that way. It has to be that way, or otherwise it stays ungrounded in its mannerism.

So, what all of this means in terms of getting to a state where there is a nothing but a nothingness is very hard to see because you have to look at both the up and the down simultaneously. I can look at it still directionally in terms of how the masculine comes in and can cause a shift as the raw energy is transformed, and I can look at the feminine energy as something that has to remain fairly set in order for there to be an aspect of ego yet existing called manifestation. But how do you put the two so together that you have a nothingness, and can you still then have a manifestation? I don’t know how that can be, yet that seems to be in the next step or something, that seems to be in the offing, whatever that is going to be like.

Anyway, that part is mystery and confusion. I just point that out as to where I can see the one, I can see the other, but I can’t quite see how the both of them could be. And from the aspect of the masculine I can see where it gets to a point where it can recognize an aspect of feminine energy that you can’t go beyond, or otherwise you will tear some fabric of things to pieces.

And I can recognize that there is an aspect of feminine energy that has to accept a craziness of the masculine in order for a shift to occur, or otherwise she is upholding manifestation as it is, which isn’t appropriate. It has to change now. This is a paradox yet. I do not see that one through. I just see the two traits and how distinguished they actually are when experienced like this.

Inner Timings

212imagesWe have discussed how we are all the characters in our dreams, and that the masculine and feminine characters are representative of finding inner balances. In this dream, a need to incorporate the natural capabilities of each energetic principle is shown in an image that reveals the deep connection between the inner principles, yet also the way they separate and try to act alone. When that happens, timings are lost and the flow disconnects.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the next dream, this is an unusual dream in that it starts off with me feeling really comfortable holding a woman in a particular way that is just hard to release or let go of her. In fact, the whole semblance of the dream is getting into this wonderful feeling state that I’m able to experience and it’s so soothing and whatnot that maybe it even could cause you to have a memory loss. And as I was writing this up, I was touching you and whatnot, and it was really soothing. It was hard for me to roll over, and whatnot, when I finally had to.

And the woman I am with is scheduled to have a baby in one half hour. We need to cross a large lake. It’s shaped like a lake, but the water flow isn’t, and we need to swim it and we need to cross this to get to where she’s to have her baby, which is on the other side.

I seem to forget about her need to give birth, which means that I have a memory timing problem. You know, I can get into something as a connection or a twining, and not be able then to hold on to a sense of the flow that always needs to be there—a proper understanding of the flow. I’m always driving too fast. I’m always doing this, that, and the other too fast. And so I’m doing the same thing in this dream, and I suggest that we swim across the lake. I figure we can do it in the half hour. She says that this is possible, but she doesn’t think it is a good idea. It is at this moment that I reremember she’s to have a baby. I had forgotten that somehow. I went, “Oh, well we can’t do that.”

So we kind of shift a little bit and now we’re going to take this boat across, this riverboat or something. And she indicates she needs to lose a couple of pounds before she gets to where we’re going. Well I don’t know what that means, because as I look at that counterbalance-wise, and I’m carrying the luggage onto the boat, I have to first of all put it on a scale. And she says, “Don’t put any weight on until I get on.” And so I place the bags on the scale, but the bags don’t weigh themselves. So something that she has to do when she gets on that helps the bags click into place on the scale, and the scale works, and then it weighs the bags, and maybe it’s something like that. When the conditions of things are properly in place, the scale will work.

The meaning is, it seems I am so close to what is important that I somehow get lost in the energetic vibration and I get lost in it in terms of the outer and lose track of the inner need. In terms of the timing, I’m not only not a good gauge of where I am at, in terms of the timing within, or how to apply it most effectively. I tend to become too stiff and heavy in that regard. And that’s kind of like the masculine dilemma or problem. It’s trying to make things appropriate, or balanced, or it has this conceptualization of what is needed, and it can be a bit on the heavy side because it doesn’t really know. It doesn’t catch up with that inner sense that knows when something is just right.

The feminine knows that to experience what is important, a letting go needs to occur. She also knows just what to take and when to make the journey. This is her role or quality that she carries, not that other masculine who had confused the scenario if he had it his way. Not only would he be inclined to do something reckless, because he is prone to forgetfulness in terms of that which is most real, but his timing is off, and he isn’t a good gauge of what is right with regard to how things need to be in terms of the journey or the process.

The reason it is like that is because the feminine aspect is directly associated with manifestation, while the masculine side initiates the flow that the feminine moderates.
