Here is a beautiful example of how a seemingly straightforward dream opens up to unveil one of the great truths.

Jeane: I’m lying next to you in bed and there are a bunch of file folders resting on your abdomen. Inside one of these folders are little plastic cassette cases that are filled with silver, or can be filled with silver, almost like silver bars. I know the folders are there and I am aware of the one folder with the silver in it, and I have the feeling that most people would be content with that knowledge. But I feel the need to make sure we know which folder the silver cassettes are in, and how to open them up, because initially I do not.

I feel compelled to open up the folder and lay the little linked cassette cases out, and then somehow the silver gets poured into them and really becomes solid. I am not content until I can do that. At first I struggle to do it but when I finally succeed I end up with all these little, plastic cassette cases, with the tops open, and they are filled with silver that will harden. There are links or bars connecting the cases together. Once the folder on your abdomen is open and the cases are all linked from there in a straight line – it stretches out some distance – and are filled with silver, only then do I feel that things are okay. I still am not feeling completely satisfied, but it will do. It was definitely not okay until I got that figured out.

John: The interesting thing about the image is that you are taking what you sense inside, and you are bringing it into the outer. The file folders are actually laying on me. They are like me, or a vibration of me. In a way, any energy that is put out into the world is karmic: It is not a question of it being good or bad, it is just something that comes into manifestation. Once it is out there it has to manifest.

I, too, have been sensing that whatever it is that one takes on in their nature, it plays through them in a way; it has a certain karmic unfolding. It is like adding a catalytic quality to something that may be otherwise inert. And thus, it is very important to be aware of what you allow to manifest, very aware of how you allow things to touch and move you. Because we are formless in a way, and when we respond and become attentive to feelings or energies that are filtering through us, the attitude we have toward them is an energy we generate and that will ultimately manifest. If you are feeling something weird, then the formless quality creates a karmic effect in just that weird way. If you are feeling something sweet and deep and tender, then that is what will emerge. That is the nature of the human being – they are mirror for the things they process.

The key to something like this is in recognizing the process of taking what is an inner echo, and then bringing it through to the outer and turning it into something catalytic, like silver, or ultimately even gold (which is a completeness). Here you are dealing with silver, something that is transitional in an evolution to something else, to another state.

It’s important to recognize that as a human being you are surrounded by choices and potentialities and, depending on what you give your attention to, you can manifest meaningfulness inside you of your own choosing. Your choices can lead to denser qualities of the egocentric life experience, or you can take what is emerging inside you and shine it up – transform it. That is the natural process; it’s simply the way life works.

It’s like the teacher has said, there comes a point in your life where you have to be careful what you think about. Another way of saying it is that you should have an awareness of the energetics you connect to and identify with because that is what will then manifest around you. There is freedom of choice in that, and a responsibility.
