Posts Tagged ‘spiritual development’

blueIt has been said that one mark of a developed person is an ability to live in contradiction – to hold two opposing ideas as both being true. And we can see this contradiction in our very act of living: we are a spiritual being, yet we exist in the physical world. And we can be completely spiritual beings while in the physical world. But, we get into trouble when we forget the spiritual side and only live in the physical world, because then our “better half” loses its connection to our life, and the universe loses the opportunity it has in us.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So then I go to the sleep dream, and in the sleep dream I delved into the process in order to cover an important aspect. In other words, I delved into this process orientation, that one tends to think that they have, in order to expose an important aspect. And, in doing so, I notice that the breath just simply carries this overallness of a beingness back and forth.

And to lay the table of it, how that is, we touch the crown of all there is in the interval where in-breath turns to out-breath, which there’s kind of a quickening of the inner essence of all that there is. And then you have the out-breath, and in the out-breath you’re touching the interval, where out-breath turns to in-breath, the essence of a longing for something more that is exemplified.

Now for there to be a complete cycle of creation, where you get the inner, and you get the outer, and you get them all simultaneously, you have to be able to go up and down at the same time, so to speak. In other words, not just first one way and then the other.

So everything is founded in the breath, although we take the breath for granted. By taking it for granted, there’s no paying attention to our beingness. In other words, we remain in an amnesic state. And, when we’re like that, then we’re in a kind of a confusion, a bewilderment, for the heart to sort out.

It’s as if the heart, then, always knows that it can be both places simultaneously. But when we don’t have the up and down simultaneous, the whole breath, there is this quality that’s like a gap, in terms of the heart feeling its wholeness, and thus a bewilderment and a sorting out – or a sense of a sorting out, or a sense of a vying of first up, and down, as opposed to up and down simultaneously where you won’t have that.

And the tendency is to have this in this loci because there is this presence, herein, that is enhanced gravitationally, in a kind of mind sense orientation. And, in this loci, we turn to our mind sense duals. We are inclined to take the in-breath as just an inflection, as opposed to a depth, a beingness.

When like that then the out-breath is starting out by carrying down a thought from the essence of stillness, which, when it starts carrying it down, becomes lost or consumed, absorbed in the plane of sound and collective consciousness thoughts, but when you have the in-breath and the essence there, it’s never really abandoned. The in-breath, when unconscious, even unconscious, is always beckoning as a reminder of the way we are in the planes of light.

The sad thing is, we get lost in the mind sense outer orientation, and its thought-upon-thought compromising, thinking then that all that we pick up, or denote, especially in an out-breath, momentous way, is concretized – and we call that manifestation – as if we’re going to now try to sort our way back into something more from something that’s concretized, using, again, the tools of our mind and senses. It just isn’t going to work that way. We’re just going to be going around and around in a kind of spiritual illusion, even though we have plenty of hints and inflections from the in-breath, if we could only note it, which is the plane of light of ourselves – and then some.

So the inner is our beingness in light, and the outer is our beingness in manifestation. When in light, we quest for the human body. When in manifestation, we quest for the unseen light. From the meditation dream, I learn that the gray area we think is an awakening of our being, is a vibratory ignorance and spiritual illusion. The inner and the outer, the in-breath and the out-breath, are black-and-white distinctions that are loud and clear, not gray as we tend to believe when we hearken to our amnesic plight, imagining that we are in the awakening process.

From a bifurcated way of looking at it, we tell ourselves that the awakening process is true. The awakening process is true only in a spiritual illusionary sense of painstaking bewilderment. Such bewilderment is likened to a waiting for the heart to stop trying to sort out the buying/selling dynamic of the out-breath/in-breath, so we are in the outer, and in the inner, distinctly, and simultaneously. There is no gray area process in the end.

In other words, that’s just a bewilderment, or the mind senses in this loci imaging and creating a spiritual illusion. So we create a spiritual illusion here, and then we lack the substance of holding and concretizing something into a seeing and hearing when we’re in the planes of light. So it’s kind of like we have to pull both together in order to be what we really are, and, in that sense, we arrive at our God nature, or essence.

i1209gesIt curious how things change. It may appear to us that everything happens gradually, step by step, but the change happens instantly. Even in learning to ride a bike, we keep trying and trying and we still don’t know how. Then, suddenly, we do, and what we have gained can never be taken away from us – because we are actually different. It is the steps and effort that eventually help us make a change, but the change can only happen when the criteria has been met, and then it changes forever. This is important to understand in our journey, because sometimes we may feel like we’re not getting anywhere, but the truth is: we are getting somewhere, but we’re just not there yet. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Actually, the theme of the dreaming was about switching, and how that process works. And, of course, what was being challenged is our concept, in terms of how that works.

Our concept is we are inclined to think that we go from one place, from inner into outer, or outer into inner, in a sort of sorting out way, as if there’s a gray zone, as if we awaken between the two aspects of our overall beingness. An aspect that’s on the inner, that is more than we can know and catch up with, that, among other things, embodies all the planes of light, and an aspect that is in the outer, that embraces, and seeks to embody, a quality of an essence put into thought, to create a concretized domain. And we don’t sit and awaken in the way that we would like to believe, in which we think we do, as a process.

We don’t go and do this in a gray zone, meaning sorting out the inner and the outer. That idea that it works like that, a process of going home, so to speak, a journey, that’s actually all illusion. You’re either one place, or the other, and we’re always in, so to speak, both places simultaneously – or as close to simultaneous as possible – because you have the in-breath and the out-breath, and on the in-breath you’re in the inner, and on the out-breath you’re back into the outer, and it’s not a matter of distinguishment as a means of being on the inner and in the outer.

It’s not a distinguishing game between the two. It’s not some sort of sift and sort. That’s a bewilderment zone. That’s an amnesia to the breath that causes us to connote that way. It’s kind of like black-and-white. It’s a switch that’s just boom, boom, not with all of the commotion. Yet in the plane of the outer, in the plane of manifestation, we long for something more that is, so to speak, our beingness in the light, the unseen light. And in the plane of light we quest for a human body. In other words, we are both an inner and an outer, simultaneous. And the gray zone, where we use the mind senses as if we’re going somewhere, to create the sensation of a journey, that’s all spiritual illusion.

So that’s what I came to learn from the meditation dream and the sleep dream.

So, in the meditation dream, there’s a way of sugarcoating manifestation, from the inner level of existence, as being correlated to the underlying essence therein, that can be shattered. In other words, you tend to try to correlate it, but it needs to just get shattered. In other words, it’s a distinction that we make out as if there’s an awakening in a more and more kind of way, instead of a sudden and abrupt shattering.

In other words, what I experienced inside was I was suddenly given an experience where this in between process that we go through, that’s kind of like a gray border area, or zone, in which our mind senses and whatever it is, and everything vies for the heart as we’re trying to sort this thing out, suddenly went poof! And when it went poof, I saw this as either all in the inner, or all in the outer. And then I saw that it’s always both, because that’s the nature of the breath. Where the in-breath turns to the out-breath is the essence of it all, and where the out-breath turns to the in-breath, in manifestation, that’s the longing to it all, put into a concretized nature.

So, in the dream, I was shown the distinction between inner and outer, meaning that there is nothing in between, and the distinction was not some sort of steady seeking in a matter of degree way, like a journey, but an abrupt shattering of the veil. The veil was completely shattered, not experienced as a matter of some sort of ever increasing degree. This stunned and shocked my sensibilities. I hadn’t expected this. I just didn’t know, or wasn’t going around realizing, that the distinction is so black-and-white.

So why was this important? It is important to know the difference as being black-and-white as a shattering of a veil between the two, you might say, planes of inner and outer, and all of the levels that that might be, as opposed to a gray zone approach where one is lost in the abiding, as if there is a distinguishable in between, which introduces a touchy feeliness into the equation.

You don’t sneak up on consciousness. You let go of a distraction, in an abrupt black-and-white switch; just drop it. That’s why the practices of stopping your mind and all of that stuff are to get you to realize that it’s just a switch, it just boom. You’re either there, or you’re not. The gray zone area is where spiritual illusions and self-deception abide. We make all that up. This is what we do to ourselves in our quandary.

In other words, you flicker back and forth. You short out, because you can’t make the compromised gray zone work – because it doesn’t really exist. It’s a spiritual illusion of one’s nature because awareness isn’t something that’s approximate. In other words, the awareness of both places, there’s no approximation between the two. It’s one, or the other, and everything else is noise, spiritual illusionary noise, that we make up and cause that to be like a journey. The mind tries to make the distinction, and, in doing so, causes the flickering sensation that’s the spiritual illusion.

When the mind and senses stop pretending, in a this and that way, the gray zone will fall away. There is either physical existence, or light, i.e., black-and-white. To say that there is an unfoldment process, in which we awaken, to aspire to an ever unfolding higher self, is a head game. When you take the head game out, there is just the breath. The gray zone demeanor we delusionally self-impose veils us from experiencing the black-and-white consciously, or the breath consciously.

The mystic can experience the in-breath plane of light, and the out-breath’s gravitational ghost energy planes of existence, the back and forth of the breath is not a complex science. The illusion of there being a mind sense orientation is what makes this seem so, because the mind sense orientation is correlated to the planes of physical existence.

So when it is said that everything must go to shift from black to white, as a way of saying it, this means that the mind sense orientation, suited for physical existence only, must stop. A human being cannot take the mind senses into the light. Or, to put it another way, the mind senses veil us from a conscious in-breath.

55efvIsn’t it interesting how we act differently around certain people? We’ll think to ourselves “that person commands respect.” How does a person do that? It is possible because they have made certain choices, and upheld certain principles, in a repetitive way, such that the energies of those qualities have come to live with them in their aura. It is the energetic radiation that we sense, without knowing it, and it makes us behave differently around them. So, what do we want to uphold in our life, and what radiation do we want to carry?  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well I seem to have just one main dream that kind of would repeat, and what happened was last night I was reading a bit, and then I fell asleep without meditating. So, in the dream, I’m in a room with Mark Cuban, and other people like that; it’s like I want some kind of a transfer.

I sit in a certain area and I’m getting a transfer, you know, through the brain, of certain energy. But I keep thinking that it would be better if I’d either meditated, or I’m in the meditation chair, it was okay to get this download. But I feel like there’s a problem with getting the download in the space where I am.

So then sometimes the download stops, or there’s some static that comes in. I’m trying to look at what the issue is. And so in that way the dream kind of repeats on and off. I’m kind of looking at what is the problem, when you haven’t meditated, with this transfer of energy, and finally I feel like the problem is that there’s increased static. It’s not going to be as stable a download as if I were in a meditation chair, in another space. It doesn’t work as well. That was all.

John: What you’re dealing with is the principle by which everything is a vibration, and that vibration reduces and concretizes into an aspected way of being. You’re having to notice how this principle plays out. The subject is one of magnetization. What is magnetization, and how does that correlate to sound and light? But you’re not correlating it yet to sound and light, you’re looking at it strictly as magnetization.

And so had you meditated you would have found a spatiality upon which something is able to lose its linear magnetism. In other words, the principle of magnetization is opposite what we think that it is. A person goes around and they relate to things in a congregated way, in other words, the way something is concretized. They relate to that image of that, and each person is affected by the images around them, and so their attention is drawn to that as a focus of what is going on – and that’s what holds onto and supports the concretized world, and that’s what makes it loud.

And people respond to that in a knee-jerk fashion, and so when you’re responding like that, and you’re projecting like that, you often think that you’re magnetized, but that is not actual real magnetization. Just like when you were taking and noticing that you’re affected by the energetics, or the vibrations, around you, and then you realize that there was something askew or amiss in that because, had you meditated, you would’ve been in a different spatiality, and that different spatiality would’ve been more meaningful.

And, in the outer, people understand magnetization based upon what directly affects them. And, then, as you develop, you come to recognize that you’re thrown around by what directly affects you, so you attempt to work with the magnetization that has to do with the greater orientation, or spatiality. And all the time you’re playing within the domain of something that is still one of sound, and sound that is concretized.

People understand magnetism from the standpoint that if something needs to happen they have to act on it, they have to make their position understood, and that’s usually spoken, or that is usually acted out. And then a person comes to understand a greater spatiality about themselves when they learn to sit with their thoughts a bit, even though they are still going on. So they are still concretizing, but maybe not so loudly.

And then a person comes to realize that if they can get outside of the thoughts, and stop the thoughts, they can have an access to a greater spatiality yet further. And eventually, potentially, break into the essence, the essence being the light and the sound before it has become concretized. But all of it has to do with an understanding of what you hold onto, and the average person, in their insecurity, has to go around, and be thrown around by, the world of their senses that holds onto the idea of the way they portray themselves, and they feel that they have to portray themselves in a way that is heard. And that way that they see that is heard has to do with presence, and that presence has to do with their concept of what magnetism is – and so they go around and they accentuate that.

Not only do they accentuate it, but they have every reason to believe that that’s the way to do it because in this plane of existence people noodle around with practices that seek to accentuate that magnetism – as if that’s the real thing.

You have to catch up with the essence that is a light and sound beyond the motions and the movement. You have to be working with light and sound. And if you’re not, and you’re working with creating a reflection that has a density to it, that creates your conceptualization of magnetization accentuated in a plane of sound, then that becomes a type of spiritual illusion.

The idea of shifting things, the idea of understanding how things shift, was rather interestingly portrayed in that movie we watched, Out of Time.

In that movie it actually spoke of, and portrayed, actual tools, that actually do work. In other words, if you change your mood, if you change your focus and attention, you can actually cause an effect in terms of the way the magnetism of something works. And you can do that within the collective, up to, and including, certain parameters.

It was basically a movie that took time and space and put it into a different paradigm, and it put it into a different paradigm based upon stripping out the self-conscious aspects, and providing one with a degree of letting go, played with the magnetism of things.

It also introduced another principle. The other principle was to watch your breath, or to pay attention to every little thing that you do, and appreciate it, as a meaningfulness, in terms of an inner essence. In other words, when you go through a day go through the day, and then go through the day again, but this time pay attention to what’s going on as you go through the day – as opposed to being on kind of a robotic pattern that has to do with collective consciousness unfolding.

And a person sitting with just their senses as an orientation to the concretized sound effect of how life is created, and thus realize that there is something behind all of that as a kind of liquid light, or sound, that, as you see that, you see it in a different paradigm.

Very complicated subject, because as a first go on this what you’re basically dealing with is the breaking up of the physicality of things. This is how you break it up, is you start to orient yourself slightly differently. You come to look at magnetism slightly differently. You come to recognize that you’re playing with concretized sound, and that sound and light actually are fluid.

You come to realize that they change, that something changes, that there are principles in which the light is impacted; it’s impacted by changes in the collective consciousness just by the bringing in of a new soul, or a change of the life force, and it can change very subtly.
