1-780101There have likely been more words written, throughout human history, about spiritual and religious pursuits than about any other subject. And there’s only one reason that would be true: because we’ve lost our innate understanding, and our natural connections, to help us on our way. No form of life requires an instruction book, which is what most religious tracts actually are, because everything needed to fulfill their possibility is already born in them, is already part of their design. Perhaps, then, it is best to trust the system that created us, and to also trust the body, mind, and spirit we have been given to fulfill our birthright. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So it feels like I kind of left pondering the design I could see, of how the sewer was supposed to run, and whether people wanted to try it that way, or try it another way. And then I had a brief dream where it feels like I’m in a house, and I feel like I’m more of a visitor, but I have some laundry I have to get done.

And so I go over, and I don’t know if it’s my mother or just another woman there, or somebody else in the background, the people that live there, they’ve already put in a main load of laundry but there seems to be a little space on top of the laundry machine where I can add in some extra clothes. So I’ve kind of stuffed some clothes in there, and I guess they’re going to fall down into the laundry machine to get washed at some point. That’s the way it works with that laundry.

I also see that I can go next door, or several doors down, and that’s where my cousin and his wife are living; maybe I could try putting some clothes in the laundry down there. But I look at that scenario and then I realize, then, I’d be kind of running back and forth between even two or three houses, because there’s several other laundry machines around. It’s probably better for me to stay on the one and see if this is going to work out, or not, so I would be there to take them out when they needed to be taken out. And then it feels like I go back to looking at the four line dots, and how they get hooked up again.

John: So what you’re doing is, again, when you’re trying to take and hook up all these dots and whatnot, you’re doing something in kind of an aloneness way. And when you’re taking and you’re looking at how everything intertwines, in other words, where you can take and go out into life and play with things in an intertwined capacity, in other words, putting laundry in that all mixes up with the laundry that’s there and whatnot, the only way that you know how to do that, the only way that you can naturally do that, is if you hold a particular quality, depth note, depth space inside of yourself where that innerness is able to then flow.

You could do all of that as part of a listening to an inner flow, an inner quality, and you can take and mix the clothes up, put clothes in there and go into a very complicated scenario in which you could have your ideas about what would be an answer, just like you could have your ideas about how to play with those dots, but it’s better to have a vibratory sense and try to permeate that into the atmosphere. And when you do that, then everything can fall into an order.

You don’t have to be the person that bicycles this way and that way to figure things out. It’s not going to work that way. The human condition is important from the standpoint that the human condition is something that we embody, and that we carry, and we don’t take this human condition as if it’s off to one side and try to steer it back into things. What we do is we just accept the human condition as it is, automatically, almost like in an osmosis of the overallness. The only way to do that is to adhere to something inside one’s self that sweeps a vibration.

All of these things come together: the prayer comes together with the meditation, because you’re kind of in a constant state of prayer, you’re in a constant state of meditation, you can be in a constant state of dhikr – which is a holding of something energized. But you kind of work at those as if there’s those three things that lead to the fourth, which is the wholeness, in which all of that comes together, and so you’re going back, you’re trying to take a step back, in your dreams, to try to find your way, so to speak, in terms of how to be – and you’re not allowed to do that without getting lost.

Jeane: Then it felt like the very last dream I had, when I fell back to sleep this morning, I’m in the same section of houses, the three houses that seemed not too far from each other. And, in the main one, it feels like I’m trying to find clothes now. Maybe the clothes have been washed, but I’m trying to find some clothes to wear for where I have to go.

And then I look in different places, because some clothes have been pressed and are neat, and some clothes they look neat but they’ve been worn before, and I’m trying to decide, like some of the clothes that have been worn before they don’t need pressing, but I do know they’ve been worn and they haven’t been washed yet. But they could be put on right away, but would that be appropriate to wear to the place where I’m going? Because I have to go back to a school, or somewhere, and I’m not sure. That would be the fastest, but there’s other clothes that I have washed, but are they pressed enough? I have to go look at them, and I think that was what I was dreaming when the alarm went off.

John: So in this dream you were spending most of your time trying to figure out how to attire yourself?

All of that still is working with the same energetic motif, or vibration, of a spirit energy, in which you’re trying to ascertain or sort something out in relationship to the overall.

At one particular point it was probably a pretty interesting step to be able to see the Ley lines, or the vibration lines, and then to see the depth of things included in the overallness – and how you could delve into that. But what happened is you developed a pattern in which you didn’t just delve into that with the right vibration. In other words, it’s like which comes first, the chicken or the egg? You’ve got to hold the vibration. You’ve got to hold the sense, and then it’s all there. And so you don’t quite have the right sense, and so you’re trying to figure something out in the first dream.

In the second dream, you’re still trying to figure out how to blend the clothes together, as opposed to realizing you could just throw them in and hold a particular space and they will all come together, in other words, having a trust in terms of a quality of how it is that you’re able to feel something in a manner of reverence.

That way you’re adhering to this inner, as it is in the outer, because the outer place is it can flow, is for it to flow in. And, in the last dream, instead of you having a sense that automatically knows, that dresses according to the vibration that you automatically feel, you’re trying to steer the vibration around to help you make distinctions in relationship to what would be appropriate as an attire.

And the thing that doesn’t jar other people is when you hold the invisible quality of this vibration behind the breath, and when you hold a quality of light, or softness, of the prayer meditative state of yourself, that doesn’t jar other people. What jars other people is when you’re caught up and bicycling around in your way, as they’re bicycling around in their way.

This just kind of leaves something in kind of a general overallness that can leave them a little bewildered, because they don’t get the edification necessarily that they seek. And if you’re trying to attire yourself to what they would like to see, then you’re very close to having to appeal to the edification of what it is that they seek as well, and you’re not able to hold this quality, and this space. It’s the only real thing going on. The rest of it is all kind of a waywardness.

So what your dreams were doing was showing you how you would step back. The process that happens is we have trapped in our synapses patterns, and mannerisms, that we readily fall back upon. And you can be speeded up to a particular point, but then it can be over the top – just like it takes awhile to make a soul pregnant, or however that expression is – you then find yourself, when you take a step back, you find yourself then where you come to see where you resort to how you sort it out – as opposed to realizing that there doesn’t have to be any sorting out on your part. It’s already sorted out. You can trust in the system, so to speak.

0022xxsMostly we think of ourselves as feeling “normal,” or as feeling tired, but we actually are changing speeds all the time. Sometimes we are the tailgater, other days we are the meandering driver. It’s good to have an awareness of our speeds, particularly in relation to the people closest to us, because they will have shifting speeds, too, which will affect one person’s ability to relate to the other person. And, in our spiritual journey, we are also learning to incorporate the quicker speeds of higher energy into our system in a balanced way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my meditation dream, I had to look at this in terms of having to look at it as an overall spatiality. I have to look at the polarities, the ends. In other words as if, in a masculine way, you’re still looking at something going from one point to another point – instead of just holding an overall space.

The stillness and the holding of the overall space is really where it’s at, on some level, but the masculine way still flaunts about. That’s its nature, just like the feminine acts like it’s being left behind, or rejected, in some fashion.

So, in the meditation dream, because of the way my Kundalini energy was speeded up at the party that was in the building here, and during a very engaging day with our water leak and all of that stuff, it actually solved itself interestingly when one didn’t get thrown asunder. So I was having trouble, in the meditation, of quieting myself and I decided to lie down to see if that would make a difference – and that’s when an amazing thing happened.

Once in a while I’d have to do something to break up a pattern, or routine, and the only thing I know how to do, when I’m not just going somewhere, is to sometimes lie down or change my position. And, when I changed my position, I was still attentive to a focus, the idea of a focus of a letting go, and so suddenly I was dreaming that I was paying attention to an energetic focus in which I left the raciness in one place, and focused on a pointedness of being still. Almost as if there’s the arrow inside of myself as the prime directive, an arrow to the stillness, and yet a link and connection to the raciness yet.

In other words, almost as if I was feeling the polarities, and the result was a sense of both places I guess is where you’d say that. I had a sense of what I was leaving behind, the Kundalini energy, and there was the adherence to a thread that delved into the letting go.

Normally, if you go into a letting go, you’re in a letting go and all of that other is gone, and then something emerges out of the letting go and that’s your meditation dream. But, in this case, it was like an experience in which I had a sense of both places yet, which means that the depth of letting go is compromised because of the nature of which the senses had come alive in the outer.

And I observed the thread of letting go as if I was looking at myself lying there in a quandary, and the experience was profound because my natural awareness was enhanced by the focus that I could see and what I was like in an uncontrollable aliveness, out of control subject to getting lost in an outer flow. In other words, both states were experiential.

In other words, when you get carried away and speeded up in the outer it’s easy where you get too over the top, yet I’m aware of a type of stillness that I was able to maintain a kind of auric spatiality of beingness, that I was able to maintain yesterday. And so, in the dream now, I’m looking at it from the inner. You might say this outer was like a scenario that points to what that is like in terms of a depth from within.

Now what I found profound in observing this is that, even though I may not have gone somewhere real profound to the degree of where you let go and you’re just gone; I mean it’s not like I wasn’t gone. I let go, and then I was aware of this other. Normally I’m not aware of anything when I let go, and I could appreciate the letting go, and the essence of an excitable inflating fire and air energy being able to put this into an attentive spatiality.

So what is going on is I am able to be in the inner and the outer if I hold deeply to the thread of singular focus letting go. In other words, I can do that in a letting go. Now what I’m talking about is what it is like when the senses in the outer are afire, and then directed to stop. When the Kundalini energy is taken on in full force, and then brought to arrest, it is possible to be able to note the expanse as a spatiality – which is opposite of getting consumed by an out of control outer vibrationalism.

So the meaning is, to bring inner into outer in a meaningful way it is necessary to take in the outer vibratoriness and, in doing so, place it into the heart as an experience of inner stillness. In doing so, I am breathing the outer senses as a Kundalini energy to be absorbed as an inner space of heart stillness.

In other words, the outer is louder, it invokes and follows a lot of the mental reflective and all of that side, and it’s denser, and then the heart is stiller and subtler. This is done in the outer when the engaged energetic senses fire up, then are breathed in as an in-breath light.

The opposite condition, in other words, to point out what it’s like to talk about it as a density, the opposite condition is to pay attention to and react to the outer senses, compelling the heart to shrink defensively, you know that’s when you go stupid. But I am able to be truly vulnerable by not having to react in this human condition pattern when I am able to exact an inner focus of stillness as the in-breath takes in the liquid light of a divine sense array.

The result is a joyful dance like inner exhilaration in that in this in-breath so much gets healed. Everything around you gets healed when you do that. That is what awakening to the intertwined wholeness is all about.

BS-Inner-GlimpseWe don’t often realize how much of our spiritual journey is a training, or a retraining, of ourselves and our systems. Everything we have done in our lives, with consistency and focus, has raised the level of our instincts, our intuitions, and our knowings about that subject. Whether we are artists, musicians, surgeons, parents, or street sweepers, there are intelligences that will come to us when we do that work – that is not there for those who have never done those jobs. The beautiful aspect of our spiritual training is that it is universal, so it can begin to give us insights into everything we put our focus on, not just on singular pursuits. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In the meditation dream I was noticing that I was okay in a quiet, still way that I had been okay, meaning that I was sitting in my quiet, still way, when suddenly in my quiet, still way, there was a commotion in the ethers of things. Because I noticed a shift, I didn’t know what the shift was, but it was like something in the outer conditions – even though it hadn’t registered to the senses yet – that something in the outer conditions was causing an effect and it had to do with what was emerging in the outer.

Usually when I sit and go into a meditation, and close everything off, I’m in such a deep, inner, still state that this state overrides from deep within. In other words, the stillness takes hold. So, in other words, my attention is in the stillness in which I just wait around for something to come out of the stillness to which I then come back.

And, of course, to get into this stillness everything around has to subside. And as I was waiting for it to subside, as I was in the throes of it all subsiding, all of it suddenly got really, like I say, it got really intense. And right about the time that you came in I was floundering in this in-between zone, going through the sense that what was going on in the outer was ten times greater than the inner. Or, in other words, at a magnitude of importance, or a magnitude of loudness, or however you’d say that, that had this number to it, that was ten times more than the inner – which was really strange.

I almost popped awake; I didn’t get a chance to pop awake because all of a sudden I’m coming out of my grog with you standing there indicating that we had a problem, a big water leak.

So the significance is, I guess there is an exception, in terms of the inner coming to the outer, when it can be overridden based upon the fact that one’s attention is needed on this side.

And so then, in my dream, I dreamt that there were four things, in other words four qualities, and these four qualities existed on two levels. The two levels are an inner level and an outer level. And, on the outer level, what came across was the need to pull something, a glimpse, out of the background.

In other words, there was something in the foreground on the outer, and something in the background, and because of the depth of the knowingness on the inner, I’m able to use my eyes to not necessarily stare directly at what’s in the foreground, I could see what’s in the background. I can get a glimpse of something, and the glimpse I got was I was making a comment to myself that others don’t see that as complete, and I was seeing that to be complete. And I realized I don’t note that others note that to be complete.

That was kind of what I was noticing, but I was only noticing the one of the four like that, one of the four meaning the four senses. I was only noticing the part that involved a seeing because the other traits hadn’t emerged out of the knowingness yet, although they were kind of held and imputed as being right there with the seeingness, to be recognized, or taken. In other words, the sense of them taken into a way of experientially in manifestation.

Now the two levels were kind of interesting in that, on the inner level, it was just a knowingness. There was no breaking it up. It was just an overriding knowingness. In the outer it was like four senses of which the sight sense was something that had a quality to it, in which there could be something brought through in a way that was in the here and now, as opposed to on the other side, or in the higher self. And that the density is the density in a separate capacity, outer way.

So what’s going on is the dream is indicating that my challenge is in being able to denote the inner in the outer. I am able to perceive the inner with a natural overall knowingness, but in the outer I have to denote it by going beyond the literalness of the senses and, in so doing, glimpse it in the outer – and know it is imbued in the outer from the inner.

Well, in the dream, the only thing I can report with any certainty is that the seeing sense could be, in a glimpse, visualized. The other three were there, too, but you could tell they were with the seeing sense in the background as well, but I didn’t have a way of bringing them out.

So the meaning is it would seem that I need to have an inner sense experience of smell, hearing, and taste, in other words, as if that’s all an inner sense merged into one, broken up into the outer so that this goes into the myriad of things as a kind of inflective background, you know basically a shaping in the background of the outer. Meaning I am attuned to the knowingness, experientially, in the day-to-day outer, as having a quality of, at least in terms of sight, a glimpsing beyond appearances.

I hadn’t realized that awakening consciously involved directing the senses from an inner knowingness to an outer inflectiveness, meaning the knowingness of the inner acted out in an outer was like an inflective to the reflective done so as a sense reorientation.

In the dream I only noticed in the outer the seeingness quality. I could tell the other three senses were there, but I hadn’t brought their subtle beingness into the outer in what I would call a livable, superseding way. But the fact that there was that there, meant that the background, even though I couldn’t quite pull it out, the background was still more intriguing than the foreground.

So, it stands to reason, that the inner knowingness, with regard to the divine, inner, higher self of the senses, has a way to go to commute from the inner into the outer – without being compromised by the outer.
