Posts Tagged ‘playing a game in a dream’

unti29292tledMost spiritual paths and religions point to the need to merge with something, whether it is called God, or a Oneness, or any number of other variations. And perhaps that tells us something about our human experience, here, on a planet, in a physical body. Being physical, we can’t be fully integrated into what is going on at birth, but maybe that is the work of our lifetime: to find ways to connect with what is already in process – by any name. Because there can only be one purpose and process at play in the universe, and we can choose to become a part of that.

Jeane: Well, in my main dream, I’m in this card game. In the card game you’ll have stacks of colored chips, like one might be all blue, or all red, or all white, whatever, but as you play the game, the game seems to go fast as cards are laid down.

There’s lots of people playing and the stacks of chips seem to move forward in a certain pattern, kind of a zigzag pattern or something, too, as you play. Well, I’m new to the game. I’m kind of playing along, you know, just kind of observing this, how it’s played as I’m playing along, but then suddenly I get dealt this hand that I know is a real exceptional hand, like I have almost all the aces in the deck but one, and other high cards in the suits. And I know I can’t play this hand like I played all the other hands because it’s exceptional.

On the other hand, no one has really explained the game to me, so suddenly someone who’s kind of to the right of me, and everything has to be done fairly fast, is explaining it to me. But I can tell the person on the left of me is annoyed at this because I think they think you just have to figure it out. And I’m listening because, you know, things move so fast I have to try to see if I can catch up as best I can. And that was the main dream.

John: So the chips represent the quality that exists in manifestation, in which you have the polarity of things. In other words, you could say, I suppose, that nothing would take place if you didn’t have expansion or contraction.

In other words, it’s the only thing going on, so to speak, is expansion and contraction, because if you take that out then all you have would be stillness. Well, in manifestation you have the gravity of things, that lead to the compositing, the formation of matter. Because without gravity nothing could be solidified into a state that isn’t just unbounded spirit energy in an empty wholeness.

And so you’re shown a game of life in which you have the energized qualities that you have to contend with. They’re energized, and they move, and they seem to have an aliveness or a magnetism of their own because of the polarity that exists in terms of manifestation.

And so you’re confronted with the common problem that everyone has when placed in the illusion of this place, and that is: how do you play the hand? And you play the hand in a world which has the magnetic variables going at it, you’re having to try to relate to those features and factors, the polarity.

Whenever you have a magnetism, you have a duality. The whole kundalini energy is based upon that, in terms of its part in the outer. And this magnetism is perpetuated by that aspect of the kundalini energy that comes into life and is able to give birth, or manifest, in matter. 

And so this is all we seem to know. In other words, our astronomers could take and study everything else and realize that basically when you get outside of the atmosphere of this place that the things are different. You don’t have the composite of matter. You have a weightlessness. You don’t have the polarity, and therefore you have just nothing but a huge empty space of nothingness – and yet there is an aliveness in that nothingness, but we are not able to access that very well.

In other words, we’re made out of the stardust of things, but the stardust of things includes this empty space, and the spirit energy bounded in a manifestation which has this magnetic polarity of things, and so everything in our makeup that’s bounded like this is affected, and has adopted, and adapted to the conditions of magnetism, opposites expanding and contracting qualities, where you have the expanding quality of a soul with the higher self, and the contracting quality of the conditions of manifestation.

And so a human being lives with the senses that work to grasp the outer conditions that are bounded in manifestation, and so you tend to view everything as separate because when you have polarity and you have magnetism you have differentiation. It’s probably no different than the school of thought that used to exist long, long ago that the Earth was flat and you could fall off the edge of the Earth and fall into a nothingness or something.

And then it came to be discovered that everything is held in place by some sort of natural law of which, then, a species is able to evolve based upon the magnetism that exists on planet Earth, and that without this very specialized way that things are, you would not have life as we know it. You would have life though, wouldn’t you, but how would it be? It would be in its essence as a quality of spirit energy.

So, in your game, what you’re doing is you’re having to contend, you’re having to go into a delirium. In your dream you’re taking and you’re looking at the aliveness of these chips. I mean they’re kind of like pent up raring to go, and you need to understand the principles of momentum in the outer because all of a sudden you’re presented with something to have to live, to do, a way of having to be, and you’re going to have to do this in relationship to the loci of this place, even though with inside of yourself there are these other levels or universes that exist.

The illusion comes in because you have to contend with conditions bounded by the magnetism and polarities of everything that is then bounded in terms of opposites, and polarities, and a contrast. And you, in your physicality, are put together in composite with this kind of atmosphere, and you’re nature as you know it could not, and would not, exist if this were to go away.

So what you’re dream is doing is it’s taking you to the point of portraying the condition you’re in. It’s not giving you the piece of that image. It’s just saying that this is how it is. You now have to know this game, because you have to play this hand that you’ve been dealt.

f475We spend most of our awake time in our consciousness, and much of our sleep time in our unconsciousness. And the symbolism we see in our dreams – and see in folklore and at ancient ruins – points to a way of communication between the two states. So what does that tell us? That our unconscious wants to communicate with us, and has been given the means to do so. That seems reason enough to pay more attention to it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The hard thing about my dream, and it repeated, is because it was symbolic it’s difficult to describe. Because it’s like I’m in a room with several people and as I look to the wall to the right it represents a game that goes on, but the game is almost like maybe because we watched a show about some crooks it’s almost like the game might be represented by, let’s say, a dark circle in one point, and a line that goes over to another point, and then above it there’s another game that goes on.

And those games might represent even something like taking something from the mob, or the mob pulling a heist, or something that you do that you can do much quicker by following it symbolically.

And I seem to have permission to do that, but there is only a certain time limit one can do it within even though it’s done faster.

John: The theme of the dreaming had to do with the way something is waking up with a slightly different manner or wrinkle to it. And things are going to have a slightly different wrinkle or manner to it if there is a quality of the inner that carries a precedent over the way things are as an outer. It’s going to have a slightly different wrinkle to it.

The way my dreams progressed with this was as if there was a whole different note, or science, or something just opened up in a different, greater, myriad of ways and it created the impression as if there are other ways of doing the same thing off of a baseline.

The way your dream opened up is instead of having to try to evaluate, you’re able to see that everything in life is symbolic. It all relates to something else that is much more than your ability to understand things with your usual faculties, or is inclined to be able to portray.

And so you come to know that when you identify with the symbolic depth and meaning of something, which means that you’re catching up not so much with the literal outer, but you’re catching up with the inner quality and essence of things, that when you catch up with the inner, when it comes through in an inner way, it is going to be different than your literal way with your senses.

And because you’re in the physical world, and you’re used to things being literal, and now you add in the inner the result is kind of a symbolic unfoldment, which means that you grasp things in one octave in the outer, and you grasp things in a whole other way in an inner – and the symbolic is the language in between. It has a whole greater dimension to it, and a whole greater and different speed to it.

And so you’re just looking at yourself in life now with this as your awakening. The dilemma or the problem of this kind of awakening is it’s impossible to explain to others because everyone has to try to establish parameters upon which they perceive the world. And people are interesting and unique when you first meet them, sometimes more often than when you meet them again, or relate to them again.

And the reason is because most people only catch up with an inner quality of their heart to a certain degree, and the degree to which they’ve caught up with they subrogate that in terms of how they function in the outer.

Most people don’t realize that you never subordinate it to the outer, that you always work with this unfoldment that comes from the inner and is constantly revealing to you different things in the outer, as you peel back the veils of the outer, so that it all becomes more and more and more symbolic.

So what happens is, in relating to the outer, you come to a point where the timing is in relationship to the symbolic unfoldment and you can’t rush it, you can’t race it out, and it has its own pace, it has its own speed. And what you can come to know and express, and the way that you’re able to be, can be one way one day, another way another day; there’s just no one way to do it. You never know what it’s going to be.

That’s kind of another overview in terms of how this process, that you just find yourself plopped into, that has to do with the symbolic mannerism, this is like another way of depicting how it is constantly at play in terms of the way you’re unfolding.

Of course, being in the flow has many nuances to it. Here, John is trying to capture the sense of being connected on an inner level while also embracing the full connectivity of what the outer, physical world represents, or shows us as a reflection. It teases the enormity of what being connected truly means. That may seem quite difficult, yet we must always remember that such a journey is known and understood by us at core – it’s in our design. We just have to keep choosing it – as is our right. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, I’m not sure that one can make much sense out of my meditation dream in that, all that this does is point out to me that I’m aware of something that is going on, and that this is what’s going to come about. And I’m able to notice this by being able to correspond the energy of the inner to the physical condition and its appearances. In other words, I’m able to see from the inner.

Because existence involves the physical world, what I see on the outer, in terms of how it affects life, I see it in a physical way – which is kind of a reflective way. As a consequence, there aren’t many options when you factor in the physical state.

That’s how one is inclined to see it, especially when you’re still caught in the woundology of reflective energetics. You haven’t gotten to the point where you can take the inner into the outer and see it through a zone all of a sudden.

And somehow I have to pull the reflection aspect out to catch the zone. And it’s in the zone that I’m able to actually see something play out that there’s no way I could take into account with any kind of focus or attention and it’s just part of the map of the way things are continuously unfolding around you.

So, then I come to sleep and in my dream, and the dream has like two parts to it. And in the first part, I find myself trying to awaken the sense of acuity and speed I need to contend with life. The first part of the dream was that of looking and looking for what it took to know how to see what I needed to see. I knew if I didn’t reach that which was pent up and hidden within, that I would not be able to keep up and relate to the flow around me. Everything has to do with the flow.

And then, as a scenario, I relate to what I am realizing that you can almost turn this into a system. But of course, you have to jump the system, which is what I do with this next dream, and the system is that science is figuring out how to trigger something that’s similar to the dream state. Or in other words, what the dream state triggers is a greater acuity in terms of focus and attention.

I think the way it works is it must affect the wavelength acuity or something, just like when drumming does that to try to put you in an altered state to be able to kind of do divination and things like that almost in another domain or zone. I think it does something like that, that activates the person to be able to do what normally they would do at a dumbed-down pace, to be able to suddenly catch up with it with a greater acuity, as if it’s a type of simulated consciousness.

If it’s possible that they can take and inject something upon the brain, the faculties of the mind, so that it goes into this zone, then what is there left? Is science actually figuring out how to do this? But what the science can’t do is what this dream points out.

The dream progressed it to me having to access – within this pent-up acuity that I knew was there. In other words, I’m having to access this, and I know it’s there. But I haven’t caught up with this for a long, long time. I know I have it, however. It’s just rusty. And the way this portrays itself is I’m watching a person defeat everyone at a game that is a cross between table tennis, racket ball, and regular tennis.

And on the winning point, I actually stop the ball, which is more like a table tennis ball, and I hand it back to the winner. Because the challenger has walked away, he’s now the grand champion, and I challenge him to play me, you know, out of the blue. There’s no reason for him to play me. He’s won the tournament. Why would he accept a challenge from just a nobody that was not even part of the tournament?

I’m just sitting there feeling in my bones that I have this acuity inside, but can I bring it out? But, he, in the dream, accepts this out-of-place request. So he’s ready to start the game, but I say, “No, no, no I can’t do that.” I ask if he will just indulge me through the warmup for about five minutes, because I’m really rusty and haven’t played for a long time and I need to awaken the game in me.

So, I start out hitting the ball with my hand, much like a racket ball. I’m not able to hit it with any power because it’s with my hand instead of with the racket. But to my amazement, I can hit the ball with my hand and I try as hard as I can, but the ball does all kinds of strange things. It goes over on the other side. He’s standing back waiting to catch a hard blow. It’s a soft blow. It bounces, has English and it jumps this way and that way. He can’t hit it.

You know, I’m just trying to warm up. I’m just trying to figure out how to hit the ball, and this is what it’s automatically doing. He’s never seen anything like this so if this were a game I’d be getting point after point because he has never seen anything like this. He’s used to playing with a certain speed and a certain focus and attention. You know, and to play him on that level, which is an inner awakened level – I’m in creation slowed down – that’s going to be hard to do.

So I keep trying to adjust the playing field to go along with what we’re doing and even the playing field is baffling to me. The surface is no longer necessarily a hard surface. It’s almost like a blanket, or a wrinkle, or something that has to be pulled or stretched out so that, you know, the ball will bounce on it as opposed to get caught in some sort of irregularity or fold.

So, just before waking up, I start thinking that, okay, now’s the time that I bring in the racket. I’m doing it with my hand, but I’ve got to play this guy. This is a game that has to be played with a lot of focus and attention and speed and dexterity. And so I bring in the racket, thinking, okay, now I’m going to have to confront him head-on in terms of how the game is played. I’ve already bootstrapped myself to a degree by playing it almost as handball.

Well, I wake up and I don’t see how this works out, but my sense is that I’m now going to be playing into this guy’s strength, when before I was playing to his feminine side, not to his masculine side.

And my sense is that it will also take me longer to awaken this aspect of that which is within. I will never be able to properly awaken it because I am kind of dense in the physical sense of things, but I’m going to try to play it in this whole masculine way, because that’s how these games tend to be played.

Well this has a lot of profound meaning in it. So you start off in the meditation dream, I am shown that when you are able to see life for how it truly is, the denseness of things that are correlated with outer reflections cannot hold a candle to the inner vibratory state.

So, that was the main thing of the meditation dream. The options were very, very limited. And that on the inner, where I could see all of this, you know, I had ten-to-one in terms of things going for me. So by comparison, it’s easy to scope out the way something is going to unfold in the outer in the long run, because with reflections, there is a predictability and the possibilities are much more limited.

So, I started off with kind of a dream that points out the importance of the inner, but does not put it quite into perspective. It just points out that there’s so much more to access what is really going on in terms of the inner.

And from there, I realize that in manifestation I am having trouble accessing my higher inner faculties, which are the key to an inner flow into the reflective outer. To my surprise, science is realizing that a human being has pent-up within more going on inside of them and is able to access this when that is not possible under ordinary outer conditions. And has come up with a way to simulate this more heightened awareness, acuity, and perhaps even a type of consciousness.

From there, I progressed into picking up a game that I knew I was good at, but I am able to find that connection again. What I come to learn is that the effect of manifestation upon this more awakened aspect of my being enables me to have another kind of dexterity. It’s more of a zone-type dexterity. I’m actually baffled by it when I see it. The normal inner—in and of itself—of masculine energy has more dexterity and speed and, of course, there’s a focus and attention that accesses the inner flow.

But to my surprise, the qualities of manifestation and all its dense, slow way when brought into the equation, adds a whole new wrinkle to what can be that is mind boggling. To play on the terms of a more speeded-up consciousness may be where my higher-self memories reside, because I must include creation which is on a wavelength that is able to access a dexterity-like simplicity that is easy to overlook.

I am able to break the trance of that which is just focus and attention. I am being shown that mankind may be able to access the synapses so as to heighten the awareness and ability, going back to what I read, the awareness and ability to assimilate more consciously by speeding up the brainwave faculties. But this will not be able to access a flow that is greater than all that which is possible from the earth’s magic of manifestation. In other words, include that into the equation, even though it’s slower, it’s denser, it’s dumber, it’s easy to slap with the back of your hand and try to ignore.

The greater speed and synaptic spirit energy access is masculine. The earth energy that is able to catch a natural flow that lies beyond the reflective limitations is in a zone that adds a whole other meaning to it all. It’s more feminine. The focus and attention speeded up to an acuity that is amazing on this level of being, is unable to adjust to this manner of access. So there’s a certain fear of that, or there’s a certain quality of that that it can’t control.

Because I do not really understand how this works, and am baffled myself by how it works, my tendency is to try and develop this inner speed that seems to have more possibilities to it because it pushes through, pushes out, and with that comes a focus and attention that holds the linkage to the inner.

But now I can tell and I know without having to play this game out, that I do not have a chance, you know, to try to play it with the focus and attention and flow and the speed, because I’m in creation and there’s no way in creation that I’m going to be able to fully access this more transcendent part of myself. I have to include where I’m at.

And when I do that, to be able to intertwine with the naturalness of creation adds something that goes beyond the comprehension of the more masculine focus and attention. Bringing in the qualities of creation, which is where I reside, while aspecting to the inner to intertwine with that is the next step in consciousness. Either, by itself, only goes so far.
