The idea of connecting to the universal, or the oneness of things, sounds beautiful, but it’s also very practical. Things that are separate from the whole can only contribute to the degradation or downfall of the whole – like a cancer or virus. The universe protects its own integrity by insisting that we learn how to be an integrated aspect of it. We still have free choice in the matter, as humans, but the universe will heal itself of cancers.

Jeane: So the dream I remember from last night feels like I’m somewhere where there’s a singing contest going on those of us who are competing the singing contest, there’s a group of people and we would go into a large building, and there’s judges that sit there, and then you sing and then they give you an assignment of some kind.
Well, I watched one group perform, and the thing about this group was that they were all blue and they had all these synchronized movements that they did while they sang. They sang really loud, and then they were all choreographed. But most people came in and sang, you know, singly.
Well, when I go in to sing, the judges they hand me something that’s like an assignment and I see that they’ve taken this man, this blue man that was in the blue group, and they’ve kind of taken him out of the group and then they tell me I’m going to sing his part when we come back tomorrow. And I see they’re doing that with other people, suddenly giving them assignments and then the people that have been singing solo might be suddenly assigned to sing with a group.
Well, I feel like it’s kind of a dilemma for me because from what I can tell the group doesn’t really want anybody to sing with it. They have their whole thing down already, and I’m a little perturbed about what I should do. Should I even continue to go along with the singing contest? Do I go and sing with them? Do I go and practice with them? I don’t know. I kind of leave.
I’m mulling it all over and it feels like finally I go over to either be by or observe the guy that did sing the part, and realize that the group really hadn’t been that welcoming of him when he first went either, so I decide finally that as I drive home that I’ll take the part with me and his part with me and study it and come back and see.
But it feels like in the dream I’m still undecided because it’s still uncertain to me whether I can actually sing with a group or whether it really makes space for anyone to sing with it or not. It’s not clear that it does. It’s like I just have to go back and see.
John: The peculiar theme of the dreaming was that of catching up with what it is that one actually is. In other words, one sees themselves and conducts themselves in certain defined set ways and, in order to catch up with the larger overall essence of one’s self, you have to quit doing that.
You have to quit seeing yourself in a prescribed, set way. You have to be able to see yourself in the eyes of others; see yourself as them, because that’s actually closer to the truth in terms of the full essence of things. That’s actually closer to the truth of it, is that it’s only an illusion we maintain that has us seeing ourselves in some separate capacity that, if you’re able to actually see yourself in the eyes of someone else, meaning be in that person to do that, to be like that, to be like them, if you’re actually able to do that, then you are taking yourself out of the energetic that causes you to remain separate.
Where does all of this go? Well, where it goes to is a vibrational overall essence energy that is behind everything in manifestation, that you go into that. You have to be in that in order to be intertwined with all that there is that exists.
I mean that’s what has to happen, and also thus the conundrum of the statement in the Bible even that you have to love thy neighbor as thyself. You know, how is that possible unless you are able to be your neighbor, and know what your neighbor goes through in every regard? Which means that even that is ludicrous as a statement unless you go to the essence behind it all that makes and has to do with everything existing in manifestation, and your attention is upon that.
And when your attention is upon that, then all of the idiosyncrasies that are separate and functioning in deviated capacities in the outer, that a human being tends to relate to, is actually not even true. All of that is there as some sort of entanglement that a person who is truly free is basically an energetic of the whole. You become an energetic of the whole, so everything, as one has heard, everything is known, everything is omnipotent, all knowing, all powerful, all seeing, which means then, that if you were to pull back from the substance of how things are in the outer, if you could truly pull back from that, and by substance I mean there’s things that have animate qualities, if you were to pull back from all of that, so that the animal qualities do not maintain their identity as unique and different in some capacity where instead it’s all intertwined as an energetic, then you’re catching up with how and who you are.
So what you’re doing is you’re taking a dose of something as an object lesson to see if you can do it, if you can actually make this transition. You hear these stories, they’re kind of like made up stories where something happens, like It’s A Wonderful Life for example, which is a made up story and essentially behind all of the action of what’s going on is an expression, or a mannerism, that touches something that goes to the depths in the heart of a kind of magic in life. And that works because somehow or another there is the recognition of something more, instead of the same/same identity.
Imagine what it would be like if everything was like that. Well, then you would be just pure essence, pure energy, pure vibration. If you were to try to put a label on what it was that you were attempting to do in your dreaming, what you’re doing, that process, is the third aspect of the new energy. In other words, the outer is just a catalyst, and the inner is an overallness that sweeps through all things. So to the degree that there’s something a little catalytic when you bring in the essence of an overall vibration you’re just using the catalytic outer, some little nuance in the outer, to sweep through with this overall essence.
It is that amazing, and big, and different of a shift.
