i5e5It’s good to have time to prepare for a flood: grab certain things, put out some sand bags, find higher ground. But if that flood is internal, and comes from the energetics of newly opening, and awakening, inner aspects, the preparation is a bit different. We need to allow for expansion, we can’t bring certain ways with us that no longer fit, and it will take a little while to find a new state of equilibrium.

Jeane: Then I had a dream where it feels like I’m two people: I’m this adolescent boy, and then I’m this adolescent girl that are living in a home. And the boy doesn’t feel very trustworthy. Seems like sometimes I’m one, and sometimes I’m the other, and sometimes I’m an observer.

At the same time the boy doesn’t seem trustworthy, I feel like I know things he doesn’t know. So I know where things are kept, or even things from the past are stored that belong to him, that are part of his identity that he doesn’t even seem to know that he still has, or has access to. So it feels like I’m explaining to him where things are in a certain room. And they even constitute certain resources for him.

Otherwise, it’s kind of an odd situation we’re living in; there are some adults around. It’s an old building with a lot of artifacts in it, and it feels like at some point I suddenly become aware that it’s going to be flooded. And it’s like I want to bring some things to him to take with us, in case of a flood, but I realize I haven’t even really grabbed my purse or a coat, and I’m trying to get us all to another building.

And, when we leave, because of the flood that’s going to come, and I know it’ll move through the whole building we were living in, you cover things up or mix things up. I’ve grabbed a few things, but I’m not even sure what and everything’s confused. And then we’re having to stay in a large room with other people.

When we get to that large room in some ways he acts like he doesn’t know me because it feels as though it gives him a certain power if other people don’t know who he knows. He can maneuver or manipulate a little bit more that way. And I’m more of an observer in the scene, which is a little confusing to me. And I realized I did get my coat or something. Or I didn’t get a coat, maybe I had grabbed my purse, but I’d left a coat behind, and instead I grabbed a jacket that’s much too large for me – and I realize is an old school jacket of one of the people that lives in the building. And when we all have to stay in one room, whoever originally wore that jacket will probably be there.

But I’m a little confused by the boy that lived in the house like kind of acting like he doesn’t know me once we’re in the larger room because we have to kind of sometimes sleep three and four in a bed there – because everybody’s kind of refugees from the storm – but he feels like that gives him some more power and with other people not knowing that we know each other, and not knowing what’s going on. It was just an odd little dream.

John: Well, it’s a dream that, first of all, identifies a quality or characteristic of the feminine nature, of your nature, that takes and is capable of absorbing, or taking in, a quality, or pulling together an energetic so that it causes a recognition, or a realization, to come out.

First of all it recognizes and acknowledges that this is the characteristic, or quality, of relatability that is deemed important, and that then goes through kind of a neurosis of feeling like it is losing its connection to do that. And so it’s evaluating whether the confusion that causes this connection to be lost is related to a sense of thinking that there is something more.

So you’re trying to sort this out, and you’re trying to sort this out in relationship to how big the spaciality is of what is going on. And it’s as if determining the spaciality determines how and where you are able to be. Because first of all it starts with the underlying recognition that the quality of being able to take in, as a type of absorptive energy, that quality of being able to take in that energy, to embody a quality of an energy, the embodying of it is what causes a connective awareness to unfold, to emerge, and for there to be a type of balance.

And that you’re taking the position that that’s somehow or another in jeopardy. And you’re coming to this conclusion, assuming that something is askew based upon a lack of recognized sight. Now, what is the recognized sight? Recognized sight is that you sense and feel inside of yourself that the process that’s involved is going to continue to keep pulling out more and more and more, and that it is designed and destined to do that. And that, if interrupted, something like that, then, just never becomes known like it can become known, or transpire.

And so you’re kind of taking and asking a question, as well, in terms of that is your core understanding. And then, from that core understanding, you’re asking the question: is there something greater, or bigger? In other words, is the spaciality designed to be bigger?

And so in trying to consider whether the spaciality is meant to be bigger, you’re trying to sort through that. And the way you’re sorting through that it lacks a clarity. It lacks a clarity. It’s trying to find an acceptance by going through a reaction, that lacks clarity. It brings up a neurosis and kind of is left in a spaciality where something is bigger, but doesn’t know what to make out of that.

30_0It is a situation we may find ourselves in all the time: moving into a new place or circumstance and needing to get our bearings. And, depending on our psychologies, how we manage these moments can provide new opportunities for us, or they can cause new upheaval in our lives. But, at our essence, we are designed to navigate the unknown; we have everything we need to respond to the stimuli we are receiving. Of course, that requires that we trust ourselves, and our systems, and let them work for us. If we are governed, instead, by our psychologies, we disconnect from our natural flow. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In one dream, I’m in New York visiting a friend of mine, and we look like we’re in our 30s or something. And I’m going to be getting ready to go home soon, when we go back to her apartment, we suddenly discover that her friends have moved her to an entirely different apartment.

So we’re suddenly in a new apartment. It’s very neat, like with oak floors and things are arranged neatly, like it’s been completely unpacked and everything. And I’m kind of wondering how she’s going to take this, but she looks out the window and she sees a normal New York street scene with the delis and the cafes, and she knows suddenly that she’s in kind of the south part of Manhattan, and she’s not far from subways that can take her here and there.

And because it’s like a normal scene in Manhattan, she’s happy with it. She knows the city and so it’s not that big a change to her. Now, we’re apparently going to go out to somebody else’s house, like to a small party or something, before I leave to return where I came from. And we seem to go in and out through the window, which is the only oddity in this dream.

And I’m kind of just observing how she’s reacting to this sudden shift, and to one of her friends of hers that obviously had kind of spearheaded the move. But I know that, before long, I’m going to be getting on a train and going home. And so, in that dream, it feels like at that point, then there’s a shift to another dream.

John: So what you’re doing in this dream is you’re using Manhattan, or the city, as a kind of overallness. And you’re using the place where she stays, and then the new place that she gets, and then from there you can leave and you can go about into some other places. That all is reflecting an opening up – in terms of being able to take in, and embrace, the overallness.

In other words, not sitting in some set demeanor, or mannerism, or posture in relationship to things, and, therefore, not able to see the forest for the trees, so to speak. This way you’re moving about, and that moving about is incorporating and taking in everything that is there in the environment.

It’s a dream image going towards a oneness. The way I experienced it in a dream that I had last night is a quality and aspect of the intertwining, where you come to know that things aren’t as you perceive them to be, but they include this, and they include this, and they include that, and they include that. And when you include it all together, none of it fights itself. Not really. It all is intertwined, because that’s how the wholeness works. And it augments, it magnifies, itself by the intertwining, and it can be shocking because in the linear outer world we go along thinking that this over here is different from that over there. And we come to find out that there is a way of looking at it, there’s a way of taking it all in, in which it all comes together, it all fits. It is all part of the whole.

Jeane: Then, in the next scene, it feels like I’m getting ready to go home, but we’re all, for some reason, out at this area where there’s kind of like a sand hill. The top of the hill is kind of some railroad tracks, and behind that that’s another bank – I mean like an actual physical bank, and then there’s a bank where you put money in.

And there are some people kind of on the top of the sand hill, who I think of as tax collectors, and they’ve collected some kind of fee or tax. But my friend is then telling me, before I go home, I should go get some more money from them; get them to give me some money. I can see that they don’t want to do that. They’ve collected what they have and they don’t really want to give you back part of it.

Meanwhile, one of my friends with me has gone across the railroad tracks and up this bank and into the physical money bank. And I realize I actually have what I need to get home, I don’t really need to get this from the tax people. But I’m standing out there and I look down to see my purse, and instead of a purse I seem to have a plastic bag that you can see through. And I have to kind of pry the top of it open a little and be careful about tearing one corner.

And then I’m looking at what I have there to see if I have what I need, and then I also look and I can feel that I have keys in my pocket. And so I pull out the keys, and their gold-colored, but they don’t look entirely familiar. Like I think there might be more keys; maybe there’s another key that I’m missing somewhere, but I don’t know, because they are so shiny and golden. I don’t know whether they’re complete or not, I can’t quite tell. And that just seems to be where the dream leaves off.

John: So, in terms of correcting this, in terms of the myriad of things, or like a beingness that is the myriad of things, where one can get lost, a little bit lost, is in the idea, as your previous dream portrayed, that everything that’s going on is all intertwined, and interconnected, and that wholeness is a oneness.

Within looking at it that way comes the problem that you can be inclined, then, to be pondering things from the outer, as if, okay, how does one take all of that into account? Well, it doesn’t work that way. Your dream is pointing out, to make sure that you don’t take and go off on a tangent, your dream is pointing out that you look within. That you have the keys, that you have the access, all from a quality, deep within the depths of yourself.

And that the looking about in the outer isn’t helping you any. And, fortunately, you’ll have your purse, so to speak, to it all. Now, the reason it works that way is because, in the outer, the images, and the vibrations of things grab your attention and they keep you bouncing from this to that.

But on the inner, the flow, emerging from a stillness, is so subtle in its split-second way of being, that there isn’t room for the mind to get in the way. And thus, that is something that is coming in from the cosmos, from the universe of it all. And the taking in of that is the knowingness.

So you have the beingness needing the knowingness that causes the coming together to the true oneness, which, again, is indescribable. In other words, put the definition, as you read in terms of that Tao reading, put the definition of beingness and nothingness together. And that’s what you really have.

And yet, who can do that? Because we can’t get out of the way of our images and vibrations that will cause it to have some particular slant, or another, in order to keep us from going mad because we can’t handle it. We can’t take it in – in it’s true, absolute realness.
