12-sBeing human puts us in a unique position: we are able to bring higher, finer, energies into the coarser physical realms. Nothing else can do that, and it is part of our birthright and possibility, not to mention an aspect of our ability to serve something higher than ourselves. And this is where our consciousness and freedom of choice become interesting, because each of us can be the access way for different energies, because of our passions, intentions, and actions. In this way, what we can offer the universe is completely individual and unique. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In the meditation dream, I am seeking to determine from the other zones, in other words or levels or whatever you want to call them, how something is going on, or what is going on. An imbalance in that regard exists in the physical world.

I’m not trying to figure out the inner essence like you’re doing. I’m not trying to figure that imbalance out. I’m instead interested in the inner level, or levels, and how to recognize that, or perhaps even fix that if something needs to be fixed. If I see the same imbalance in the reflective outer I ponder what that might be in terms of what is really going on on the inner.

So when I stare in the inner, to the degree to which I’m ungrounded or something in the outer, and dismiss the outer, I’m finding myself trying to see the little equivocation or imbalanced note that I’m able to pick up, I’m trying to see that on the inner. And then when I see something that seems a little equivocated on the inner, I try to look even further on the inner.

So I’m going from level, to level, to level all the way to the point where eventually it gets to be too much to take in and so I never get the job done. In other words, in the dream, I’m not able to determine why the issue is a problem on the inner levels. I say inner levels because it seems that there was no simple explanation for why something was amiss from any level that I accessed.

The significance is what is interesting is that I was intent upon focusing my attention upon what was going on, in the inner planes of life instead of the outer. I was so intent in this approach that the outer detail is virtually forgotten. I would look and look at the nuances on a given inner level to no avail, as I would realize at some point that a resolution was yet from a still deeper inner level – and on and on it went.

Each step took me more and more into this subtle intangible, further away from visually understanding upon the lower planes of manifestation, of which upon the planes of manifestation I’m being dismissive, even though that’s where I am finding myself is on the physical plane of manifestation, as I am looking to see what is going on in terms of the inner coming into the outer.

And so what I’m noticing is that, when I probe deeper, what is inclined to happen is I even start letting go of some of the prior inner levels in which there can be a kind of experientiality that maybe can be graspable in terms of whatever the imbalance is, and instead I just feel the imbalance or the offness on some of the inner levels. And so I just keep trying to get subtler and subtler in my more transcendent way.

So what is going on is the dismissiveness I have on the planes of manifestation correspond, you know, because if I have that lack of focus there, I will have that lack of focus on the inner, so they correspond to the inner aspect as well. I must look at that and, if I do, I realize that the imbalance here is echoing from yet a deeper level of my beingness.

In other words, if I’m properly grounded that’s not so, but if I’m a little ungrounded then everything stays ungrounded as far and however you look. So the result of the seeking is I am taking the position, and it’s the wrong position to take, of course, but to understand the denser levels I have to go to the inner source. In other words, not realizing that you can peek behind the curtains and see that here, and that’s what’s called getting grounded or being here now.

I’m finding that this approach takes me to more and more intangible inner levels that, as they get my attention, I realize I have to go even deeper into the inner for the reason behind it all to be revealed. A point is reached where I realize that what I seek on the inner is ungraspable because the inner goes on and on, and there is no inner essence part that I can say, ahh-hah, this is it, and everything now makes sense.

So the meaning is, what I seek to know is like saying I am God, and I have a right to know the innermost aspects of the spirit and soul. What I am finding out is that I could access the unfolding inner will, but I am not able at a given point of overall beingness to be the epicenter, or the Will of God, per se. Or, to put it another way, try as I might to explain what is going on upon the inner planes of access, I cannot. These inner planes just go on and on, one subtler level after another.

So the hint is, what good is access to such levels if I do not accept and deal correspondingly with how it is that I am in the outer – and what that is about? I access the will in the outer and it is not really any different than the inner levels, except that this physical plane is where I am at and, as a result, on this level the Will of God is presenting itself reflectively, right in front of me, and is including me in this denser outer process.

So the reason for the dream is, I am being shown that when I dismiss, or disregard, the outer reflective flow, this same ungroundedness demeanor shows up on each corresponding inner level, and the pattern goes on and on within. The Sufi statement of accepting the directive of what God wants and designs as the will for the sake of a home promised on the inner, which is meant to give you both, is as good as it gets in terms of me being able to see around the denser curtains, so to speak, to the inner will; denser curtains, or the fabric of physical existence.

And also the meaning is that I am not accepting, in the outer, all aspects of the Will of God and, as a result, am not able to be at peace in the outer – or any inner level, for that matter, because it goes on and on. You just never get there.

The path to the Kingdom of Heaven, as the saying goes, goes through the densest of all planes. The densest of all planes is physical manifestation. I know this, and it is for that reason that I am here. So the joke is, is that in seeking to understand the outer physical reflective state care must be taken to not annihilate and, by association, dismiss what is going on in the outer. To do so is to be ungrounded, and to be ungrounded like that is to be not attentive to my beingness here as a beingness that is intertwined to the inner, and to the outer, or the above. I am not able to give up one for the other. I need what is going on here for an appreciative correspondence.

i555sWhat we see in the world around us can only tell us a fraction of the story, just as a freshly baked cake can only tell us a little about the ingredients that went into making it. But, as humans, we can connect to the energetic underpinnings of things and arrive at a much deeper level of knowing than we can get to when we only use our five senses. And, when we learn to do that, we can become a conduit for bringing new energies into the world, which can then bring about the next changes we see manifest around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So my first meditation dream is adamant about the fact that change happens from the inner, continually from the inner, and tells a long story in terms of showing how that is. And that the outer is really consequential in terms of its reflective.

And then my sleep dream proceeds to go on and show that that which is considered an inner in the outer now, or what has been in the outer now, is an inner that has been in the outer to such a degree that, in order for something to occur, it doesn’t occur with that that has been in the outer. It occurs from something completely anew again, again coming from the inner to cause that to shift and change – because it can’t change in relationship to how it has been conducting itself in the outer.

In other words, it’s almost like you could say that if it’s been conducting itself or going along in the outer for a couple thousand years, and now it still acts as if it’s got a right to turn the corner this way or that way, or drive the car this way or that way, no, when that goes, that goes as a consequence of not something emerging from the reflective. The reflective can’t do this. It will emerge from a deeper innerness.

And that is the role the masculine. The role of the feminine is to uphold that which is designed and ordained. The role of the masculine is not to sit and become so pacified that it allows injustice to continue, and continue, and continue to the point where the malaise is such that nothing appropriate or proper can transpire.

So, in the meditation dream, the metaphor for the entire energetic flow and unfoldment is represented as a chart. It shows what life is on a chart, now, and it’s a chart for a company that’s kind of like deemed to be the company of companies. It’s called Attack Resources. So I monitor, or observe, or look at the trade action of the stock, meaning I have at my disposal the key to what is going on.

The significant feature I found myself making note of is, in this imagery, is the fact that my attention was fixated upon inner price movement effects, the inner price movement effects of the stock. In the dream I had a sense of what inner meant, and what outer meant, that dwelled only upon the inner effect. I dwelled so much on the inner effect that it could be said that in this dream I paid no attention to the outer effect. I was also careful to not let any wayward thoughts interfere with the focus.

What I mean by that is thoughts in terms of other energetic action, you know like other stocks, or other possibilities, were never entertained. Consequently, I was firm in my belief that everything going on in the world was visible and knowable in terms of the goings on of this stock. By goings on what I mean is the expansive and contractive, up and down, cycle action of the company. By company I mean the universe, and the action is expansive, or contractive; in this dream that is deemed to be because of an inner into outer motion.

In other words the inner coming in is expansive, and then when it hits into the outer it becomes contractive because when you portray something reflectively it then contracts. So I’m treating the response as being a reflective response to the inner unfoldment, so I do not place my attention upon the reflective.

Significance: Although physical perceptions are outer in that the physical senses are oriented to the physical plane, I am being shown in this meditation dream that it is not the outer action which effectuates change in life or, to put it another way, the reflective outer is not where I look for change. I look just to the inner, which makes itself known by being the insightfulness and beingness unfoldment of the universe.

That is very odd. That is the name, yeah. Attack Resources. So what was also significant is that my attention was upon just one thing. By one thing what I mean is that I did not acknowledge the existence of any other energetic unfoldment. Because I used Attack Resources as the metaphor for manifestation, that is, for something that is in manifestation, so in other words that’s the result, like the energy has come through, and the reflective is what’s under attack – in terms of how it handles it. As the metaphor for manifestation, this metaphor is the one thing. Nothing else but this exists as the means, and device, for the unfoldment of inner into outer.

The meaning is, is because Attack Resources is me, the meaning of the dream is I, as a human being, am the means upon which an inner and outer rapport exists. I am the seed thought beingness for the inner into the outer evolution. So, to put it bluntly, the idea that the reflective outer has in some way a say in the process is delusional – based upon the meditation dream image.

spirituali-wIn a life we may uphold many principles that guide our journey: we’re honest, and will never take anything that isn’t ours; we’re compassionate, and will never hurt anything unless our life is threatened. Yet to make progress on our spiritual path, we must adhere always to a higher principle. That principle could be: I’m in service to something higher, or however one would describe their human purpose. To uphold a principle means that we honor it in every situation. And that’s how our spiritual growth should look: we check everything we do against our highest principle and, even if we make mistakes, we make them with our best intentions. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my meditation dream, I find myself placed in a position that proves that, in the outer, change occurs from the inner. In other words, the appearance as the outer can be pretty resounding that something else is being pointed out, or poked towards, as happening. There’s no vibrancy in that; it’s just an appearance.

And I’m being shown that to be able to read behind that, in other words, to look at the timeline of something, in the spatiality that exists, and to know what the actual pinpoint meaningfulness is.

So in the dream I’m looking at conditions in life and they seem to be unfolding in the outer as the outer is being shaped, in a scripted way, by man. The outer conditions portray a particular outer mannerism as prevailing, and yet there is a spiritual inner image power which is what really prevails in the dream, not the appearances.

Each thought that I feel in the circumstances, I seem to be off about any thoughts, or thinking, or mind that’s going on, because when I look at it in that way I expect something different to happen – it being obvious. And, if that were to occur of course, in terms of my senses and the feedback that I’m getting that has caused me to perceive in this way, it would be something that’s in repudiation of an established inner norm.

In other words, inside of myself I really do recognize and can see percolating around something as an inner to outer flow, but the outer can look so convincing that you can get sucked up in it. So when it comes down to the inner into outer result that night, in other words, in the day it’s one thing, in the night it’s another. At night what I touch and see within has a different established norm that prevails.

However, even though the effect of this I am told is established therein, circumstances in the outer belie or attempt to disprove this rule, such that, based upon appearances, you can expect a different result. But that’s not what occurs. That’s something that I just keep buying into all the time, that it’s going to be like that, because the inner into outer effect sets aside that quality -because it’s the inner that ultimately always prevails.

So the reason for the dream is it is pointing out to me that I am carrying within an attitude that renders a grief upon myself that is unnecessary. In other words, I do this when my attention is upon the outer and not yielding and paying attention to what I kind of know, at a very subtle level ,with inside of myself. What is pre-established as the norm, is what is designed to ultimately occur. Everything would be so much easier for me if I let go of my personal predilections – caused of course by the senses and such – and yield to the inner flow, and look to the inner flow, experience that inner awakening as a guidance.

I’m presently situated in an outer motif nature which defies the inner into outer entrenched, embedded flow, which is what this meditation dream is portraying. And so, consequently, when I’m like that I always have it wrong. I am suffering because I am still holding out a defiant discombobulation – when I should know better.

The rule to follow, that offsets misaligned outer circumstances, is to live and function off of the interest unfolding therein. In other words, if the innerness has something that has a base to it, and then it throws off something as a byproduct, which is like an interest, and you spin or live that interest. You do not relinquish the underlying principle of your being, you know, which is what you do if you try to make something out of the outer that isn’t.

Or to put it in another way, which says the same thing and also corresponds to what is going on with the inner self, I need to honor the principle unfoldment that I am in touch with at night and let the changes flow. Those principles are what I experience as a secret of secrets being the foundation of what there is when I go from outer appearances to the inner levels of my beingness, and set off an interest effect that plays out in the outer in a naturally honorable way, an unfolding way. You know, it’s like I’m in touch with that instead of groping to make something of a flow out of something that is reflective only.

The personal regard, in other words, when I’m trying to do it in the outer it’s a personal regard then, and that is a suffering because there are denials that tear away at the flow from within. There’s a repudiation of it in some sense where you’re trying to enforce your will instead of something that flows from within. That principle quality, that’s a wholeness. And so, to my great inner good fortune, I’m aware of this. I just need to yield to this unfolding therein.
