Go-with-the-flowIn these two dream images, Jeane is faced with a conundrum: how does one hold on to the Wholeness, and yet be able to deal with the specifics of life? One way to think about that question is to realize that when we react to the flow of life in a personal way, it shuts us off from the Whole. That leaves us only in the specific. It is better to not have a personal reaction, but to see the specific from the viewpoint of the Whole. Of course, that’s easier said than done.

(At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just pulled out little bits of each dream, but they all seem to refer back to each other. It feels like in the very earliest dream, I work somewhere where whatever they want to have you do, it’s like the highest educated people do something, and it feels like very linear to me like it would fit into a tall rectangle and maybe involve radiation. 

And that’s what they actually choose in terms of resolving the situation. And then the people that are the most educated are the ones who do it. But I’m convinced that actually that approach is wrong, that it’s better to take another approach that’s less drastic, and that it produces better results in the long run. 

Although they usually have the less educated people doing it, I have more faith in it, and so it feels like there’s an argument going on about that.

John: The theme of the dreaming last night had to do with reaction action. In other words, what is typical, what is the response, what is the mannerism that comes up when you’re affected in a particular way.

You’re using something as a dramatic in the outer, in which the outer is affected in some inner way through your image. Now, there’s an accepted way, or common way that sophisticated people are then doing this in their reaction. They have a way of contending with it in which there is a manner that’s defined.

And what you’re doing is you’re seeing, somehow, that there is a more natural way, or that there is something else that is another way upon which the situation can be dealt with. And you’re finding that this is how it is done in the most common way, right?

Now, what’s interesting is I’m not sure how you’re using the word common. In other words, it’s like I think you’re differentiating between specific versus overall. And a specific way would have one take and go and deal with something in a linear capacity, that’s defined, that not everyone has the means upon which to do that.

But that is actually an abstraction from the Whole, and that the Whole has to do with not reacting, and taking everything that happens as having a greater meaningfulness, and being able to accept and absorb that for what it is. And that’s what the average person is actually doing at a greater depth inside themselves, is they’re finding that they are designed to simply let go, to be there.

What’s happening is, you’re taking and you’re throwing yourself into this contrast. The natural way of taking and letting everything go is being suggested. In other words, to go with what is in the flow of evolving as opposed to fighting it, which is what everybody does when they take and they react to outer conditions is that they’re actually fighting a natural overall flow.

You’re being told, in a way, that this is no different. You’re fighting an overall flow by responding. That’s almost baffling. It’s hard to believe.

Jeane: As the dream goes on, you and I have to go somewhere. We have a new car and it’s a black car and it has got kind of that big roof like the old Buicks had. Do you know what I mean? It’s kind of a big old car. 

We haven’t really driven it before, and we’re going out at night and there’s snow on the ground, and there’s also something like I can see almost like a roadblock across the road up ahead, and we have to kind of negotiate in this tricky way on the snow, go through what almost looks like there’s something across the road. 

So there’s only a small section through which you can cross, and our battery must die and our lights go out. Well, I’m trying to do something to fix this, but I keep finding myself in the backseat with the seatbelt on in the dark, not the place from which to steer the car.

So I almost have to make this huge effort to actually get in the front seat. I must figure out something that makes the light come on very briefly, but it’s dimmer than it was before, so we have to get across to this little Chevron station and little shopping center I see across a little river. 

There must be a bridge. Well, you start to drive for a few minutes, but then you take us to an area with a little road that just leads on the snow out to this barge, and then we’d be stuck on the river. So then I have to drive again, and I get us over to the little town. 

I’m pretty sure it’s the battery. I think I want to go in and buy a battery, but the first place I go to with someone, and it doesn’t even seem to be you right now, the store seems to think that I want to use credit to get this battery, and credit doesn’t work anymore – they just laugh at me.

So I leave the store and I do something where I actually come back; I don’t know what it was I did. I must have just gone somewhere else and I figured out how to get what I needed, because I come back and this time I have something I can trade with, or that I can use to get what I need, and then I’m going to go to the little Chevron station.

But I know we still have to make it home in this car we haven’t tried out that well yet, so I don’t know if it’s going to make it or not.

John: It’s a dream where one drifts a lot. You lose your ability to see because you’re letting your energy go down. For whatever particular reason your energy has gone down, and the black car is something that drives in a state of Wholeness, or emptiness, or grace – because it’s white out – but the black car is driving in the snow, or driving in the whiteness.

In other words, it’s the part of one’s self that’s making the journey, that goes out into the Wholeness, or the overallness. But in this particular case, you’re being told that the energetic, the electrical, the part that keeps you fired up, that keeps you quickened in terms of making this journey, is out of energy. It’s shorting out, or the lights are going out.

Because what you’re showing as the solution is you have to adopt, or reach, a particular aspect of your masculine nature, where you take a responsibility for yourself. You can’t stay back in a safe zone. What can be accomplished if the car can’t go, and the lights are out – what good is sitting in the backseat all buckled in?

You realize that you have to move towards the issue. Going along for the ride, that isn’t acceptable. You have to plug yourself in, or be engaged, or come directly to the situation, to confront or deal with the situation, to no longer ignore it.

Sitting in the backseat all buckled in is kind of like ignoring it, assuming that the black vehicle can just kind of keep moving along. But you realize that something needs to be done, because in the Wholeness that it’s in, it’s not holding up. It’s not able to maintain itself as a microcosmic flow. It is losing its juice.

And so maybe the difference is that you’re not direct enough with yourself to what is at hand, so you put yourself into the driver’s seat, which is more masculine now as opposed to subjective and feminine.

And in doing so, of course, this leads to collateral damage, because when you take and you do something like that you actually are taking and doing something that’s coming out of a letting go, and going into a state of compaction. In other words, bringing through and functioning in a very specific way within the Wholeness, and that’s a microcosmic motion in the Wholeness.

Because the second dream is responding to the first dream. In other words, the first dream is proposing a naturalness, that in its simplicity is the better way of going, in a general overall sense.

And then the second dream is like saying, except, but, and points out a scenario where the vehicle, which is driving in the state of grace, is no longer able to maintain itself, its energetic, and is thus impacted.

Sitting in the backseat, in a general overall nature, buckled in and going along for the ride, is the same thing as being able to reach and use what you would consider credit cards, or whatever, that have an unlimited depth to them, that more or less have a quality about them that’s able to take into account what is needed.

You just put it on the card, so to speak, but you’re not allowed to just put it on the card, and you’re required to have to drive the car. What you’re doing is you’re contrasting two states of energy.

You’re contrasting the state of energy that has to do with a natural overallness, in which things are all in their place, so to speak, because what people do to try to establish an edge or an upper hand over things when they react, when there’s a reaction to be had, what they do is not the preferable way of being.

It’s better to be able to sit in this natural overallness. However, there can be a point in time, in which in this natural overallness, the vehicle has some problem in terms of keeping its energy right. It’s shorting out. It’s not able to make the journey like it used to make the journey, and you have to take more responsibility, with a kind of focus, when it’s like that.

But at the same time, you can’t forget the first dream. You can’t forget the first dream where you still have to recognize that there’s a greater natural overallness that’s going on at the same time, – you have to work with both.

And so the second dream is there to kind of tell you that, yes, there is this general way, the superior overall way of being. However, in the microcosm of things, you’re required to also be attentive to what is affecting you in the environment. But your attention has to be such that you deal with it specifically, but still do not lose the overallness that is your greater being.

You have to have both. You have to sustain both. It doesn’t talk about depth or anything. It just talks about flow and reaction to flow. Maybe it doesn’t deal with the depth because it’s the masculine that has to probe itself more deeply to take responsibility for what it brings through, as its ideas and thoughts and whatnot, and the feminine just has to be receptive to it, and know by the feel of it, and the sense of it, what’s meant to be, and what’s not meant to be, in terms of how it fills, or fulfills, something.

You’re faced with a conundrum. You’re working with an inner note inside yourself. You can’t dismiss it. You can’t totally dismiss that note as unimportant, and you can’t be too literal with it either.

In that regard, you’re going to extremes. You’re going to a certain depth or density with what is reactive and throwing you asunder. I don’t know whether you would call that a depth, or spin, and then, on the other hand, you’re having to hold onto a cadence of the overallness for the greater sanity of it all.

I guess that’s probably describing what you’re going through. I keep sitting there looking at it from the standpoint that, is it trying to tell you something? I’m always looking at things as if they are teaching dreams, too. Is it trying to direct you, or guide you, in some particular way?

I guess, with that in mind, what it is doing more than anything else is having you pay attention to both equations simultaneously. It’s unacceptable for you to try to take care of yourself via reaction, when you have this general overallness as a responsibility, and it’s unacceptable for you to stay in the general overallness, as well, when something specific is at hand, so, thus, you have this conundrum.

They kind of run at odds to each other, but do they? One is kind of an inner, and one is kind of an outer. One is kind of at a depth of going up, and the other is kind of at a quality of going down into the depths of one’s self. Do they run counter? Actually they fit together like a pea in the pod, but it takes a bit to recognize that you’re having that kind of expansive depth.

As_Above_So_BelowA dream of moving vans and house-hunting, while Jeane and John are planning on moving in real life, seems straightforward enough. Yet these images also point to a much greater idea – that of remembering our in-built connections to God and creation. Being, as we are, in physical bodies, requires us to find our connection to what created us through a groundedness that comes from our inner life – our higher self. That is very different from being grounded in the material aspects of the world, which can often be what disconnects us from our higher purpose. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The beginning of this dream, there’s something going on that I’m not remembering what it relates to, but it’s like I’ve gone somewhere and there’s a moving truck there, a big long one almost like a double long one, and I’m observing this moving truck and a second moving truck that comes.

It seems to be a place where the trucks pull in and stay, and I know that there’s something about the owner of the moving trucks that I have an uneasiness with, and it does have something to do with the fact that you and I are going to be moving, but I just don’t remember a lot of that part of the dream.

I just saw it as like I’ve gone to this place in the country where moving trucks stay, or where the owner of them is. There are at least two big trucks that pull in and leave, and I know I’m observing it. I know I have some uneasiness about whoever owns the moving trucks, but I just don’t remember enough about the context of that dream before it switches into the rest of the dream.

In the dream, you and I are going to be moving. I’m not even sure that we’re living together, but we will be. And there’s a woman. I don’t know if she’s your mother, or relative of yours, who seems to help us sometimes with looking for where we’re going to move.

Maybe she’s just a real estate agent, but at one point I’ve gone out and I’ve gone to look at this little house in the country and the real estate agent is showing it to me. And apparently it’s a house that you lived near when you were a kid, and what you really like about it is that it has all of these memories.

Now it’s small. It has a couple of levels to it, but it has one outdoor area that’s a covered outdoor area, but it’s almost like a huge room also, and so you’re kind of indoors and outdoors. And I look at this place, and then I leave, and then I come back on my own.

The owner isn’t there and the place isn’t locked, so I go in and I’m walking around. And then suddenly the owner comes and I startle her, but I just explain that we were thinking about buying it and she’s kind of delighted about that, or maybe even her husband comes.

I think there’s a man at some point. What they start showing me is they take me… it’s a small house in some ways, but they take me into this one room and they show me that in the kitchen, which he had actually designed it so you could put this, it almost looks like a long broom handle, through the refrigerator door into the wall and use it to slide the refrigerator over and then you had room to play a piano that was next to it.

And that seems to almost go right into the bedroom too, like all of these rooms kind of flow into each other, and then they took me upstairs and were showing me some neat things about the indoor/outdoor room about how what you can do there and how it’s laid out.

There were just a few unique things they have done so that even though it’s a very small space, there’s something about it that you can tell they’ve really loved it and they’ve done some unusual things to make it work for several different types of functions. And it has all of these kind of memories to it that you have from a childhood.

What I don’t want to tell them, in a way, is that you and I will probably only be there for about two years because we’re moving somewhere further north after that, but I realize at a place like this they even have kids that could rent it, or we have kids that could rent it by that time, some guys, you know, that live there.

I really think in some ways this would work because it would be easy to either rent out or resell, but I’m not saying anything about that to them.

John: What this dream is about, is it’s comparing and it’s looking at the two traits… the words existence and creation don’t actually work anymore, because existence and creation implies just one thing. It doesn’t imply the something that’s the universe, or the Wholeness, which is infinite.

You’re looking at a comparison of something that is rooted in creation, and yet has a sense of movement and flow that comes in some sort of infinite capacity. You have the moving trucks that represent the infinite capacity, and then you have the place in the country, or going into the country, which represents the rootedness and the groundedness in creation.

Then what you point out is that the groundedness as represented by the house, in other words something that’s formulated as an aspect that is in creation, is the means by which something is appreciated, because you can’t appreciate things if they are always in flux, as a moving truck.

You have to appreciate it through a groundedness, through something that’s rooted, and when you root something in creation you stir up the nostalgia of something deeper inside you. You stir up the memory of something more, in terms of who you are.

That’s the importance of being very rooted and very grounded in creation, the little house. However, the little house is quickened by the fact that it also has the macrocosm of what is defined specifically as a house in creation. It has the macrocosm effect.

Because it has this overdrive or this other quality of an effect, it becomes like a refrigerator, the broom represents the ability to traverse the two, to be able to link or connect as the thread between two zones, and the refrigerator is the catalytic, and the piano is the link to the inner harmonies, and you’re able to bring these kinds of traits and qualities into this house.

Now, the important part of the dream is that of the nostalgia, of the value, of the quality that the house resonates, the memories that this house carries, and that’s exactly how it is in terms of God. God cannot be appreciated, and whatever God is cannot be known.

To begin with you have to root and find the memories, the nostalgia, the sight of something in creation that touches, and that’s how you come to know. In the joy of that, in the appreciation of that, in the honoring of that, in the respect of that, in the trust of that, things unfold. And it doesn’t matter, it can be a real small house and they still unfold because you’ve created the link of above and below.

But it’s only in the below, in the microcosm of things, that you’re able to find the appreciation. You can’t aspire to that in a moving truck, or Tower of Babel, or any sort of thing that probes and reaches out, knowing that somehow out there is a greater ideal. Yes, in a roundabout way you can say that that’s your true home: that interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath, that’s your true home.

But you do not catch up with that except in a very rooted and grounded nature that is in life, and yet allows itself to be touched and moved by a quality of something that is so much greater, but that so much greater has to be fully appreciated.

To fully touch and reach the heart, you have to have a quality of a rootedness in creation. The problem with the rootedness in creation is that it’s very, very hard to keep from being anal retentive and getting caught up in the mishmash of things that tear you up and throw you around and make you feel bad about this, or sorry about that, or however it makes you feel. It’s very, very hard to keep that from happening.

So hopefully, this quality that resonates out of the range of perceptions, something bleeds through that then can be recognized and seen and appreciated back again on the element of creation, in the most subtle heartfelt way, and that is as good as it gets.

And when you experience that, you have a trust in that, you have a faith in that, you have a sight in that, you have a respect of that, you honor that, thus the catalytic, the thread between the catalytic of the refrigerator leads to the harmony and the music of the spheres of the piano.

The theme of the dreaming last night was looking at a groundedness and a rootedness in creation, a groundedness and rootedness that leads to a recognition, and an appreciation, and a trust, and does not get thrown around or caught up or lost in the absurdities and complexities that undermine that distinction, or that way of being.

You undermine it when you aspire to be something other than something just in creation. There is a way of being just in creation so that the nostalgia, the memories, all of that, come through, and touch you, and in feeling that that is like a music inside you, like the piano, like a heartfulness that touches the spheres of all there is.

But that only happens through the catalytic refrigerator effect linked with the thread. The thread or the broom that moves things up and down and around, is the breath, and so in a realized soul, sure, the most important part of the breath is the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath.

But from the standpoint of a human being, unless they become something other than a human being, you only can catch up with the memories, the vibration, the feeling, the quality, that is carefully instilled into creation, that can have a compactness, and a denseness, but still resonates this other. And it is appreciating that, recognizing that, which enables something more to occur.

Today we have a continuation of the conversation we began on Friday, in Saying Yes to the Process.

Here John leads us through the ideas of the processes of dream work itself, and the unfolding of the spiritual journey as the energetically awakened person begins to see the world around them more from the inner into the outer, and explores the concept of holding both the unconscious and conscious aspects of life as one thing. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Yesterday I had a very, very complicated and detailed dream, that I couldn’t remember one lick of when I came out of it. As a consequence of that dream I was in revolt to everything. I couldn’t identify with the outer environment around me or with anybody.

Everything was nausea, everything was kind of insecure. I was kind of like cracking up.

So I went to bed. Jeane takes and has two great dreams of which she always remembers her dream. She rolls over and touches me and same thing, poof, completely gone.

I kind of laid there in the cradle not even wanting to get up. When I get up I go back to meditating and meditate until 12:30pm. Basically all morning long – still not able to identify with anybody or anything and still in this very strange state.

When I come out of it I go out and announce, which I had announced to Jeane earlier in the morning, that I’m toxic and therefore I’m not going to eat for the next three days. You know, the feminine always take that as a shocker, you know boom like that. He’s really flipped out.

At 12:30pm I get up, I take a long walk, and I come back at about 4pm, and the TV is on and I’ll be darned panning around is one of my favorite shows, A Bronx Tale.

But it’s on a channel with all kinds of commercials and it’s got a lot of filthy language in it because it is one of those types that has very deep meaning but uses extremes to get there, and they’re dubbing it out because it’s on regular TV – plus with all of those commercials.

So I’m now flipping out again because I’m cracked; I’m fragile. So it gets recorded, the other half of it or so, and I disappear again and meditate for a couple more hours because I can’t relate to anymore TV or anything.

And I come out of that and watch it and it’s really good and everything, but I’m still feeling in this state where I’m a little disconcerted. Now, as far as a certain level of sight, it’s enhanced. But as far as a dexterity in the outer, I feel very helpless and weak.

As far as talking about things that other people talk about that consider important in terms of outer things, I probably am dangerous to talk to in a state like this, because I’m liable to shock them. I might not be polite enough you know to cater to it.

Also what tripped this, the night before last, was we pretty much set up a movie we were going to watch. It’s actually a very excellent movie with a lot of depth to it, Water for Elephants.

Jeane selected it and I thought it was a dumb movie but it turned out to not be, so we had the movie room reserved and she had a friend that was coming down. This was in… oh, I forget what they call it – it’s a special way of filming so it’s really high tech and whatnot  – and of course we have a pretty phenomenal movie room here, so at 8 o’clock this person hadn’t showed up yet.

And before they showed up about 8:15pm, I could already feel the vibe, and by 8:30pm I didn’t even want to watch the movie. Well, what this person is, is this person is an incredibly brilliant person, very deeply developed on a spiritual level, but so insecure it’s unbelievable.

I’m so much of a type of raw energy, that if a person was really insecure, I’m going to hit that button right off the bat. I mean, I was aware of this before she showed up. I felt I needed to disappear.

And then when she showed up she greets me with all kinds of openness because she knows Jeane real well and I don’t feed her insecurity button, and she starts to crack. And then she tries to make a comeback, and it doesn’t work you know because, I don’t know, I’m just a hard ass in some sense, and I say I don’t even mean to be that way. It’s just kind of a quality there and all of it was useful because what it did is it threw me into this nausea.

I mean this is a wonderful person and what came up was a discussion in which there was another person in here that has a lot of momentum, accomplishes a lot, but is vicious…

But you know they can’t help themselves if they’re vicious and I couldn’t stand the judgement of it, so I took this person’s defense even though I don’t agree with it. I also don’t agree with any black-and-white rubbing out something. And of course that will hit the insecurity button right away, because this person finds that sort of thing repulsive. If you find certain things repulsive, and you are reactive, you’re not going to be able to carry the kundalini energy.

And she had accessed things and she had developed a sensitivity and a brilliance, but then comes the next installment that could take her miles and miles down the road – would be the kundalini energy – and it will freak her out. It’s too much for her.

Jeane likes her because she finds her so brilliant, but she’s is also very, very careful to know how to handle her in terms of her insecurity.

I joke to Jeane, I say, “That’s an amazing talent that you have.” Just like I can take someone that can walk up and stick a gun in my ribs as I’m walking down the street and just start talking to him as if they are a long lost brother, and then when we hit the corner they go one way across the street and I go the other way as if nothing had happened. And anybody else they would have freaked out and they would have gotten robbed and who knows what all.

But I don’t feed into that and so it doesn’t work. There is a kind of a natural intertwining. I think I have told you this story of this other guy that’s so dangerous that he puts people in hospitals when he flipped out, and I would talk to him and everybody else would give him a wide space because they knew if he flipped out, and you’re around, you are going to be in bad shape.

I like the guy. I never felt any… I mean I could feel the rumble of that quality in his nature that was out of control but it was almost like driving a car. I knew how to drive that, how to steer or something, and appreciate the wondrousness that this guy had inside of him too…

One has to get like that and be like that in order to break the trances of the outer.

Because the outer is nothing but a reflection of energetics, conscious and unconscious. In other words, you’re going to come to a point in your dreaming where you are going to realize that the access that you are having that is reflective has a limitation too.

In other words, the outer is all reflective and your dreams are reflective but they go to a different depth. They incorporate a certain soul element that moves around…

But the soul element is also caught in having to be in creation, in a magnetism of a human body in terms of earth, and it’s a little bit baffling and a little bit confusing, so the images that come through you speak of something on the other side, but put it in a language that has to do with symbolism that is an earth energy.

And you lead through the earth energy to understand the symbolism on the other side, or the meaningfulness on the other side. Well, because your senses work most of the time, 99.9% of the time, outwardly and the mind of course is there interpreting those outward senses, when you have a dream that you remember, what you have actually done is you have stopped the mind and have settled yourself.

You didn’t realize that you stopped your mind, when you were sleeping, but you have stopped all of that moving around in an outer way capacity that just yo-yos back and forth and doesn’t have any sense of cadence. You have paused enough in order for this greater dimension to leak through, just like when I’m unsettled and cracking up, Jeane just touching me, it sets a trepidation off where she loses her dreams, or that quality of the other side trying to communicate through as a kind of language of the macro, to which she really is at a deeper level.

When you dream and then you are reducing this to images that you then cypher through to see what’s going on as a movement of the soul at a deeper level, what you’re doing in the dream process is first and foremost is you’re establishing first of all a stability and a sense and a training and an understanding, and a strength, by which you then can be subjected to access of the greater part of yourself.

When you are really fairly trite and dense, you can’t handle much and so everything is kept really basic. The outer is the outer and it’s no more than that. But then when you start to get more subtly refined and developed inside, to where you can access the greater part of yourself, then you come to recognize that the outer is nothing more than a reflection of the inner.

To begin with you struggle with your dreams in that you have to somehow get to the point where what you see in your dreams you don’t apply in an outer context. To begin with you do. To begin with you think oh, well it means I did this, that, and the other – I’ll change that in terms of what I do tomorrow.

To begin with, it’s a lot like that, all still cycling around your narrow perspective of life. But ultimately it gets to where you can’t do it that way anymore. That’s the nausea that you hit, that’s the third part of your dream. You can’t do it that way anymore.

You cannot be subjected to the limitations of power and control; you are intertwined with it all. You cannot handle you being treated as if everything operates in its own separate way and is distinct. You know better than that.

When you get like that, well, here’s the dilemma you run into, like Jeane starts out and she recognizes both the conscious and the unconscious, and then she learns how to take and put that sort of thing into kind of an order by which she can then express herself. Her dream described right where she was at in terms of using the energy, but it also portrayed the nausea in another way.

And I said to her that her dream was where she had both the conscious and the unconscious simultaneously. How can you be okay with it just being that way – in a state of a type of nothingness?

In other words, it hasn’t been formed into anything whereby you’ve streamlined yourself to utilize it. That can break you into a million pieces. That can cause you to throw away everything that you had identified with in terms of the sense of satisfaction.

There’s a way of interpreting your dream and this would be a completely wrong interpretation and fortunately you haven’t gone there, I don’t think, but there would be a way of interpreting the dream to think that your marriage is going to fall apart or something. And that is completely, completely totally wrong.

And that’s how the kundalini energy can destroy you, because that isn’t what the kundalini energy is about at all. The kundalini energy is there to cause you to take a step within. Everything in the outer, all of that, is meant to be an inner to outer correlation, not prison.

The outer is not a prison, it’s a reflection of the inner. Ultimately the outer reflects the inner.

That’s why when things are in a certain state of flux, here in creation, there is a similar flux in the ethers, or in the higher self, or the higher whatever, as above so below. And we are sitting with an access to it all, by being able to hold into the depths of something as the microcosm. In other words, there’s both the expanse and the contraction and the expanse and the contraction ultimately reveal the same thing.

As an example, the contraction you could take and put something under a microscope and you could see that every cell is identical to every other cell in the human body. Basically they have a blueprint, and that blueprint has a quality about it just like a fingerprint. It has a quality about it that is unique.

The microscope or the technology of minuteness can take and break the atom all the way to the point that it can get to the epicenter of all of the energy in creation where you have the big bang or poof effect just through a type of nuclear kind of way they call it nuclear anyway, a nuclear kind of going and going and going to the point where through the microcosm you get to everything that there is.

It goes that way too. We live in the microcosm. We have access through the microcosm to everything in the macrocosm. It’s amazing that there is no time and there is no space and you can play with it either in terms of expansion or contraction.

And a human being yo-yos back and forth between expansion and contraction which is the same thing as saying one minute they’re happy, and the next minute they’re sad, and one minute their heart is dancing, and the next minute their heart is crushed.

And then they start to maybe even develop some of the traits from Proverbs, or Ecclesiastes or whatever, that in other words don’t get too elated because then you are going to get sad or whatever as if there is an equanimity, which is a kind of Buddhist term now.

You know, trying to find that love of equanimity so you do not throw yourself around. This is just the order of things. Another way of saying expansion and contraction would be conscious and unconscious.

What we consider consciousness is in the outer an idea of how to best fend for yourself, and the most responsible and know how to walk across the street without getting hit and all of that we consider that a type of understanding as a type of consciousness. What we consider unconsciousness is a person that’s sleepwalking and they walk across the street and kabango. That’s unconsciousness.

That unconsciousness is a quality that includes everything in the overall. Consciousness has taken and streamlined and limited something.

Here’s another way of describing it. The world is created out of sound. So everything resonates a pitch or a sound. There is a sound in the universe and you can hear that sound.

Now let’s apply science to it. So science has come along and they’ve taken and they have figured out what’s called frequencies. And they can make a frequency, we will call it a cellular frequency, and the cellular frequency can handle voice technology, it can have the frequency that can transmit television and news radio and such. That’s streamlined, that’s precision, that’s taking something out, of you might say, a type of unconsciousness and made it conscious in the outer.

Then you can take the same frequency and you can go from what’s called analog to digital in which you tighten the frequency and now it handles and transmits and projects better things like data packets.

And then you could say well gee, I have accumulated all of this. I need to be able to contain it in some fashion. So now they’ve developed what is called microwave, which is a type of working with light where you zip this to maybe a home base like a central computer or something. So now you are able through the microwave to spray this around when before when you took something out of the macrocosm as a microcosm, you limited it, because a radiowave can only project so far, but now when you convert it back to light you can start to expand it back out into the macro.

The secret, the key here is to get to the point where you can be both conscious and unconscious simultaneously.

In other words, the dream I had last night is I went home and there’s a baby laying first of all kind of in the middle of the bed or towards the middle of the bed and suddenly it’s laying right on the very corner on the end.

And I start to wonder what would happen to this baby if it rolls off the bed. Sure enough, the baby rolls off the bed and eyes open up, the mother goes over and picks it up, the mother being my mom, picks it up, and the baby can talk.

Pretty sharp baby! The baby’s joking around about something that dad had said that indicate that the baby is going to be put on welfare, and the baby is laughing about it as if this is a joke because the baby knows. The baby can reason and knows stupidity when it hears stupidity.

Then finally I’m looking at the baby, the baby says, “Who are you?” I say, “I am your older brother.”

Then the baby comments about that, makes some comment, and I say, “Yeah, there is another brother, but I’m the oldest.” And then I try to remember another brother I had, but I can’t remember him. So it’s like he’s my other brother, but I feel like I am 40 in the dream yet my younger brother’s 20.

And the whole thing is this baby is in a state of unconsciousness, so to speak, connected to the soul of things, and I’m in a state of sophistication connected to creation and supposedly having lived life and have a certain conscious recollection about things, yet to this baby everything is unconscious.

Wow, I am a baby. That baby is me, we’re intertwined.

Ann: Boy, that’s pretty powerful.

John: So both the conscious and the unconscious have to be carried together. It’s the only way that inner can properly come into outer, it’s the only way that the inner and the outer can be correlated.

Otherwise, to the degree to which you have a depth of awareness inside of yourself, you’re going to keep building bigger castles, and you’re going to have no problem with the kundalini energy, except the kundalini energy is not designed the way the teacher’s teacher put it. The kundalini energy is one third on this side and two thirds on the other side.

It’s designed to open you up to the greater part of yourself. And when you open up to the greater part of yourself, then you come to find out that this path is about service. The reason why it’s put in those words is because you have a responsibility to the Whole.

And as you take on that responsibility of the Whole, you function differently.
