Posts Tagged ‘purpose of life’

egypt-c-1275-bcThe idea of awakening runs through countless spiritual and religious paths, and it speaks to the idea that what we are, and what we are designed to do and be, is designed and coded into us. So our journey becomes a process of becoming conscious to our preordained purpose, and then using our freedom of choice toward the aspects of life that support our greater understanding of life. In this sense we are in service to what is higher and, through living that purpose, we become part of what is unfolding rather than separate from it. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: My next dream, I’m a young woman. I have a somewhat older boyfriend. I’m living in the city and I’m going to take him upstate to visit my family; and I know the way there but he doesn’t.

There’s another young woman, who’s kind of in the background, that’s going with us and, somewhere along the way, we pick up this other kind of roly-poly man, too. Well, I’ve seen on the side that the roly-poly man is actually kind of a saboteur. He belongs to this organization and the man there and he, at some point, are going to turn the car that we’re going into that can go underwater and become a submarine, they’re going to do something to take over the guidance system of that car.

I go across the city with my boyfriend and this girl that’s going with us, and we go see his place, and then we go out in the street to get into his car. At first I’m a little surprised because since I know the way I thought he’d have me drive, but he’s driving, and as we head out at that point I become aware that as we go up there, and we come to a point where we’re going to go across a lake, that the car will turn into a submarine and go underwater, crossing the lake.

At that point I also see, kind of in a vision on the side, that this kind of roly-poly little man that now joins our group is going to do something to program the submarine. His boss wants to test something. I don’t know exactly what he’s testing, I just hear what they’re setting up. He’s going to do something to the guidance system of the submarine and is just going to have them test something.

So meanwhile we’ve gone on. We’ve gotten our little submarine. It’s gone underwater. While we weren’t looking this guy did something to the guidance panel in the submarine. We’ve gone along and we’ve gone to the motel. I notice that several times when you think I’d be wearing shoes, because it’s kind of cold out, I’m actually going barefoot. And, at the motel, I also realize that my room has like a blue bedspread on the bed, and my boyfriend’s out of the room right now, but I’ve come into the room with the other girl and we’ve kind of cornered the roly-poly little man because I realize he’s done something to our submarine.

Now, meanwhile, our submarine has been out in the lake and it’s actually been going underwater a little on its own, and it sees this little spy tiny submarine on the bottom of the lake that must be something to do with those people that have tried to take over its guidance system. It looks at it kind of like suddenly the car has a certain intelligence. It’s looking at this thing and realizes it’s kind of stalking him and is going to try to do something and that will have to do with what’s been done to the guidance system.

So meanwhile back at the hotel, the boyfriend, and I’m not even sure where he is right now, I’ve kind of cornered the roly-poly man on the bed and I’m kind of making him cower a bit. And when he does that one of his eyes… he thinks if he makes me look at his eyes it’s going to throw me into some kind of a trance, and even makes one of his eyes go into this great big bug shape where it gets all dark – as though that’s going to intimidate me. Well, the truth is it doesn’t faze me a bit. I’m just trying to kind of cow him a bit so I can figure out what I can do to help the submarine.

I don’t know whether the submarine can overcome that yet or not because it hasn’t really, thus far, shown a behavior that’s unpredictable – but I can tell he thinks it will. Anyway, that was when I woke up.

John: So in this dream what ended up happening is the car, that seemed benign to begin with, became something with an intelligence as a submarine. So how did that happen? How did that get in imbued in it when, to begin with, all it was was kind of a process or a means by which you were going to take something and hand it back to the top, take it to your parents?

You were going to make a journey where something came together, was consummated as a result. It’s somewhat similar except the first dream had you birthing something into life.

The second dream, without using the birthing, has you, because that still carries an inflection of like another kind of an aliveness if you’re giving birth to something, the second dream takes it another step and shows that there isn’t another kind of aliveness, that there is something that is awakened, from a dormant sleep, that is somehow already alive. But it wouldn’t be alive, and it would not have a chance to wake up, if you had just followed the process of taking this all the way back and introducing it to your parents – or taking it home.

Instead there was a more latent, deep vibration at play here, which is typified as this person that’s the madman, that comes into and interrupts the surrendered conceptual flow, and causes a chain of events to occur in which the aliveness stays and continues to go to depths. In other words, to the degree that there’s the idea on one hand to go home, or to a place that returns, you know, that offers back up to the source, there is simultaneously something that wants to go to greater depths, the submarine, the car becomes the submarine instead of a vehicle that travels to a destination and that’s it, revealing up something and leaving it at that. In other words, becoming an end all be all flow.

Something has occurred, thus the question: was the thing that was to be offered up as a sacrifice of completion, was it in cahoots with that quality of energy that comes down as an out-breath? In other words, this is a dream that works more in the nature of the masculine out-breath coming down. Why is it considered a masculine out-breath because it brings something through that can touch and awaken something in life? The feminine then can maintain a role of effusing it out, or the feminine can just be affected by all of that and think, okay, and then render it up, just give it up. But no, the feminine’s a container. It holds that, it doesn’t just release that back as if it’s a robot. And when this process is recognized to have to work this way, you never ever really do leave the plane of manifestation, that you are everything – including the plane of manifestation. That’s when you get outside of this birth/death cycle.

The thing that occurred in your dream, there was never a giving up. There was always the challenge of the two, of the innerness of something, and then the outerness of something, and that you could be put into a trance, perhaps, but you kind of had to hold both places. You had to abide by the essence of a depth deep inside of yourself, and you had to also abide by having to stay and contend with and go to the depths of manifestation. This, as I mentioned in the first dream, breaks the whole process of there being a journey. It all just opens up and you have to contain both of them at the same time.

Now what I didn’t quite say, that I was about to say, in the first dream, is that this whole idea doesn’t make sense. The reason why it doesn’t make sense is because what you’re really, really talking about is you’re talking about some aspect or something that permeates as the true aliveness in both the inner and the outer. And so when it’s in the outer, meaning that you’re walking around as a physical human being body relating to everything created out of sound, created with sound, in other words sound taken out of the light. You have a kind of physicality to it that is transitory, because the light is the faster vibration in which none of that exists. And yet in something that is like this, in a physicality, it is said to have access to that which is everything. It is everything. It is composed of everything. It has the molecules of everything and yet, at the same time, it has the physicality.

So there’s a mental literal way of looking at it and saying, how can this possibly be so? Because if this other exists, that’s an infiniteness, and this is a physicality, a finiteness. And yet that is how it is. But because we can’t break this notion of something that’s finite and something that’s infinite, we can’t seem to pull the two together to grasp this inner and an outerness, we’re inclined to think that we are creatures that are trapped in kind of a physical origination or modality and, therefore, if we’re something that is trapped like that, then we find ourselves thinking that we need to relate and be much like you see everything in nature, where everything has its season. But we don’t have a season.

In other words, we’re not like a crop of weeds that’s planted as a seed, grows, and gets harvested, and then keeps having to go through a reseeding process and reseeding process and reseeding process as it continues to grow – or any and everything else as far as that goes. We can act like that. We can get caught up in that with our ideas of, you know, growing up, getting married, having a family, living to old age, perpetuating things with grandchildren, finally fading out and thinking that that’s all there is. Or we can break the birth/death cycle and come to realize that there is a way of twining and connecting with everything that is going on – and doing it in an everlasting way, in an all-pervasive moment.

So your dreams are playing with this as kind of the subject matter. Your dreams are playing with it in kind of a way of flow in kind of an overall sense, in other words, you have this overall sense that’s looking at, so to speak, the options, and somehow or another you have a focus and attention that doesn’t allow you to just get out of Dodge, you know, or do the same thing that you see in terms of a form of being that has a season, and only a season, and at the end of the season there is no more.

In other words, then it would just have to keep going and going and going and going, which would get into the idea of reincarnation and all of that sort of thing, when you can get so that there is no such thing as that because you are ever-present. And you are looking at that.

In other words, you’re not willing to accept the fate of something that takes and becomes surely sacrificial. If you were to look at this from a wild man’s standpoint, which is that little quality of the masculine there that actually got in cahoots, even though you didn’t quite notice this, you know, it had to have gotten into cahoots with the other energies that was a little misaligned in the masculine in order to bring something all the way through, to keep it coming all the way through, instead of just grabbing what it could take and going sweeping up as the feminine energy back to a home.

You had to notice that this process awoke something. It made an inanimate alive, which means that you can hear all you want that you are everything and that everything is alive, and in this dream you did something, you recognized something in terms of how a moment works, in terms of how you can transcend time and space, in terms of how you can break the birth and death cycle, in terms of how to quit looking at yourself as a seasonality, and in doing so then, everything around you becomes quickened, becomes alive, so then there is no birth or death, there’s only the moment – and that everything is speaking to you, everything is you. Isn’t that interesting?

im222sIt seems that everyone, at some point in their life, asks the question: Is there more to life? And, of course, religions and spiritual paths are all about that “something more.” But it is really a question that is fundamental to our humanness, because it is preordained in us that we can make this life about something more, about the everything that the universe is trying to do. But that is a life in service to the purposes of the whole, not in service to our personal agendas. That is how our freedom of choice determines our destiny. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I think I had two dreams, but the earliest one popped out. But the second one, I’m in high school and it feels like several years before that there was a boy I was really interested in and wanted to get together with. And we tried to get together one night at the school and his father separated us, and they’ve been gone several years.

Well now they’re back, and so the family still seemed to want to keep us apart, but all of the kids seemed to conspiring with us to get us together. And there’s some big event at the school, so when we go to this event at the school, and we ride on the bus, it’s almost like everybody on the bus is doing what they can so he and I can be together.

But they’re also, I think, smoking pot or something, so everybody is slightly stoned as well. And when we leave the bus, and go into the school, it’s like he and I go into a room in the school where we can be alone, and we realize in a way the family didn’t want us getting together earlier because they were afraid we’d have a baby. And I’m sitting there thinking about all this, even though I’m kind of a little out of it, and I’m thinking about we would’ve done okay, actually, with a baby. We would’ve taken care of it.

On the other hand, do I want a baby now? So I’ve kind of paused with the way the whole thing is going and have kind of put myself a little aside so I can start processing all of this, rather than just go along with the way we’re being kind of pushed by the kids, or separated by the family. That was that dream.

John: So the key here is to identify where this flow is at, in terms of the breath. So, initially, it was something that had an access that was taken for granted, and then that access went away. So, if it was an access that was taken for granted, that was there, that was kind of natural, then it would have been something in the order of an awakening that resulted in a kind of balance – which is similar to the way the out-breath comes down, touches something in manifestation, and awakens it.

But then because it went away, or moved away, the result of something like that requires a kind of responsibility to have to be taken into account, because when something is awakened, or when something like that happens, it results in a kind of connection in which there is a coming together.

And the coming together that is difficult to contend with has a feeling about it that is actually more light, more in-breath. And so on a cheerleader level, inside of yourself, there’s the idea that you’re entitled to that expansive lightness. But then in terms of a copability level inside of yourself in manifestation, there’s a lot to have to consider here.

And so to try to discern this, you take a look at the result and potential resulting effect. And the resulting effect is that the coming together of an energy like this, that awakens something, results in a birth – much like the in-breath takes something back to the home at the top, the deemed home of the innerness. To do that, and the idea of doing that, is a lot to consider, because if that’s all that there is, then it kind of seems like everything is all mapped out then.

And so part of you ponders that. In other words, yes, you could take care of it if it were to happen, you feel you could take care of it, but do you need to? Things are pushing you to go in this direction of easibility and comfortibility, but there’s something about the lightness of that, and the way that it removes itself out of the mix of things; it awakens itself and gives birth to something. In other words, it kind of becomes an end of the story kind of event where it becomes the end all means in and of itself. Yes, you look after the baby and whatnot, and is that all there is to life?

And so there’s a lot to consider there, whether one just draws up a script like this and leaves it at that, which is what people do. In other words, people take and they’re caught in a world in which they have their notionalities, their ideas that come down. They have to align those ideas in some way that causes something to make sense for them. However it is that they awaken something, generally speaking, it is of a defining way. What they define they attempt to make feel good as best they can, in terms of giving back, or producing something that seems to have merit or value. And what they come up with that they produce, or the result of all of that, becomes a definition, becomes a way of being, becomes something that is set in a particular modality and, as far as the way things work in a plane of density where there is these epiphanies, they seem to be as good as it gets – but you’re not so sure.

You seem to realize that there’s not necessarily any set thing, or any set appearance, or mannerism, no matter how good it looks to the cheerleaders. And what is the cheerleader energy inside of you? Well, the cheerleader energy inside of you is a feeling of okayism. It’s a lightness that you feel in terms of kind of an overall cadence. It’s almost like blasé.

And what does this do to you when you feel this? Well, it kind of makes you a little ungrounded. It kind of puts you on cloud nine. It kind of enables you just to kind of skate by, and to rationalize why it’s okay to skate by like that.

So the consequence, taking the dream and relating it all to an aspect of the understanding of what you’re doing with the breath, the understanding is that you don’t then just take and birth something and be done with it just as if you’re a crop product, you know, that has its season and that is it. That you hold and maintain in terms of the overall of manifestation and, when you do that, then you stay in the moment, then you stay viable, then you get outside of the clutches of time and space. You break the seasonality of the nature where everything has its moment and its time.

You break that because you find yourself having to stay relevant to the whole. Well, when you find yourself having to stay relevant to the whole, and you don’t just get into an accepted mode, two things happen. The in-breath quality enables you to open other levels and see things past, present, and future, whatever. It all becomes there because it is meant to be there. It’s not just a seasonality thing.

And the out-breath quality of your nature causes you to continue to conduct the play, and be in the play, of the outer in an ever present way. Well, you’re talking about a dichotomy that almost doesn’t make sense, and almost doesn’t seem possible to exist. In other words, you’re willing to be sacrificial. People in life crack to a point where at some point they get sacrificial, they’re willing to do something and do it for sake of what seems to make sense as a beingness. In other words, they give birth to something and be done with it, and let go of it, and say, okay, that’s their statement in life.

Just about everyone around you does that, and so they all have a season in their nature, you know a beginning going to an end. But a person who takes and recognizes that it doesn’t have to be that way is able to transcend the barriers between time and space, and they are able to be in a moment, ever present in a moment, with all that there is past, present, and future, a stillness.

In other words, they are a force of nature, they are nature, they are not something that comes and goes within nature. There’s not the amnesic effect. The average person goes back to dust, and goes back to losing all sense of a consciousness in this birth/death cycle. But that which holds onto a presence that awakens, and holds onto it in relationship to all of the planes including, and most significantly, in terms of the plain of manifestation, doesn’t just render something up and be done with it. That particular person stays ever present. They never really die.

It’s funny how you would dream something like that. If you just render something up, you have the baby that you know that you can take care of, that you can make this in this sacrificial expression, you see this going on all around you. This is what everybody does.

This is like a woman in life comes in and thinks that she can get married, that everything is hunky dory, and it’s the end all be all. And then she has a family and there’s still something missing, and it’s an intangible thing, but at this point in time she basically has to let go of it, she has to suppress that, because she doesn’t know that there is something more.

That something more is a huge leap. It’s a leap outside of this idea of birth and death. It’s a leap into a wholeness that never dies. It’s a leap into a oneness. It’s a proper and complete pulling together and merging of inner and outer, and of beginning and end, in-breath and out-breath. So it’s a big subject.

Earth_from_RosettaIn our last post we had a dream that involved a societal breakdown that included vampires, and an attempt by the dreamer to fix the system and make improvements by uniting around a central idea (see A Reference Point). Today we continue to look at this dream image from the standpoint of spiritual evolution for the individual and for the human as a species. Though their futures are intertwined, the individual doesn’t need to wait, and can’t wait, for the collective to do what it has been designed to do. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: What if you were to take and look at it from the standpoint of you making a journey like that? Will that cause, or change, the outer from tearing itself to shreds or will that happen anyway?

In other words, is this more like a kind of rapture where a person is being rescued from within from the travails, and influences, and effect of outer consequences upon their being? And that you take everything that you see around you and you turn its focus back to an unputrefied condition and state.

In other words, instead of having a system in which you have vested interests that are personal and ego oriented in terms of their me, myself, and I separation which contribute towards tearing things down and impoverishing the outer reflection of things. Instead you have the quality inside of yourself that upholds what is important in terms of the overall motif of how something has to, and needs to be, in terms of it being what it really is – instead of what it has become twisted or misaligned into.

If you are able to do that, are you actually able to create the greater image of change in which something is able to actually shift? Can that dynamic break through, or come through? Can a society come out of its trance, its indulgences, and come back to an orientation, a singular orientation that brings out, or brings forth, that which upholds, or sustains and maintains the whole essence of manifestation?

In other words, manifestation is, in its highest form, a reflection of something from within, a hidden treasure from within, but a waywardness has taken place that has gotten more and more out of whack because man actually has a means to live out its imagination however that imagination is. In other words, it creates its own dimensions, its own planes, its own schematic, and that if one is able to let go of that, they are able to evolve back to who and what it is that they really are.

They still have the propensities in their nature that can go awry, but they have grown up and know that there is no purpose in life for them to act such things out, because they can’t go anywhere. It just puts you in a pariah and pariahed state, cannibalized state. And so for this to not be so requires the collective consciousness of a wholeness to predominate.

So the question then becomes: is this possible? Well, the image that’s been portrayed doesn’t make it sound like that it’s possible because the image that has been portrayed is that the light of the whole has gone out, so that a shift is not able to occur, and that things are destined to breakdown.

However, your image suggests that this doesn’t necessarily have to be so, which makes one, if one accepts the original premise that the light is out in the collective but not in the individual, then the individual can take the outer reflections and see them in a whole new light, instead of things that are happening around tearing at you and causing you great disturbance.

Instead you come to see how everything that is happening around you actually is part of an overall general inner design and challenge, in terms of the development within of what is real, the true light, and that through man, man has been the crown upon which everything has gotten disseminated in terms of what flows from inner into outer. And if that then flows back into the heart of man, then the true essence of how it is and who one is can come into being, and this way of looking at it, accepting the premise that nothing can really shift, this then becomes then the world that an enlightened person is able to live in unaffected by the nuances and deviations that exist around them. They are in the world but not part of it.

Could you have such a humongous contrast? Under the Yin-Yang principle that sounds and is implied as possible, because under that principle it is said that the greater the confusion and disorientation that there is in the outer, the more that almost is a counter banding or counteracting principle, the more that a light opening up as a potentiality is possible in some other way or regard. And that it’s almost as if it takes such times to invoke this other.

In other words, it doesn’t seem to just exist if everything is in a state in which what is reflective is what is real – although what is reflective can be what is real if the identification is purely to this essence and this essence only – then all that could reflect would be a divine principle and thread in which everything bows down or is intertwined with the will of God.

But if this is no longer possible in terms of the outer collective, because too much of the light has gone out in terms of the world, so to speak, that it is just the individual that can transition, and then how is it that that individual is going to progress? Is that individual going to be going back, like I said earlier, to a type of rapture or place inside of themselves that is at home, that is the principle of light, maybe one little dark speck left in it, so to speak, because it is in creation with everything this way and that way, but it is not touched by that? It’s not affected by those reflections. It has let go of those principles, those characteristics, because any identification with that would destroy it, or bring it back into the pariah state of things, and start the devolving from the whole all over again.
