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.

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.

atom-610x222As humans we can’t understand everything that’s going on; and we aren’t meant to. But what we can do is bring the intelligence, and knowings, we receive from our inner lives, or our inner guides, and ground them into life. And grounding something into life is the same process as having an idea and then creating something from that idea. We then can make the spiritual manifest in our lives and in the world. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: The dream I remember it’s like I’ve gone with my family to Europe to live for a period of time. I’ve taken a leave from work. The main reason we’ve gone is because my mother had become somewhat senile.

It’s just my mother, my father, my sister, and I in Europe, and it feels almost like a Scandinavian country, and my mother improves there, and she’s more normal. So they decide – maybe they win a lottery or something – so they’re going to stay over there, and I feel like I need to go back to work in the States. And they want me to come back in a short period of time after I go back to the States, but even though I think initially I’ll do that, then I’ll tell them that really I have some mixed feelings about their decision to stay in Europe because they’re going to pay higher taxes there.

But also I don’t feel like I can go back and go to work and then suddenly say I’m taking another leave in a few weeks. That would kind of leave them in the lurch, so I’m going to work at least two more months and then I’ll kind of decide what to do.

So I leave in my car to go to the airport. I’m driving through the mountains and I’m not really sure of how to get there, and I feel like I’ve kind of taken a wrong turn so I kind of take this wild swing around and I come one direction, I come the other direction, and then I suddenly pass something that looks a little like a bus stop. And it feels like the bus stop is actually in the city, so I start to drive and I know the busses from there are going towards the airport.

So I start to zip by it, but suddenly the road ends, huge drop off. I find myself out of my vehicle somehow standing on the edge of the road where it breaks off, car’s disappeared, have no clue where it is, and right in front of me are a couple customs officials. And I look over to the left and there seems to be some kind of a garage. There must be buses that go to the airport from here, and they must do the customs check here, and I seem to be holding like a small pillow and something else in my one hand and I’m kind of clutching off.

I have a feeling that maybe I have a bag somewhere, and it’s okay, but my vehicle has completely disappeared. I have no clue where it is. In fact, I almost feel like if I don’t step right I could fall off the edge behind me, but the customs officials are right in front of me so I guess that means that I can get to the airport – but lord knows what’s happened to my car. That’s all I remember.

John: So the most important thing out of all of that, because the dreams were bizarre yesterday, but they have to do with a certain focus and attention that we seem to have awoken inside of ourselves. And even though we don’t know where it is, and what it’s about, we seem to go around almost in a state of a type of bewilderment, each of us.

In other words, to begin with you find yourself going to Europe, or a foreign country, to try to help something, which is like going inside of yourself, going to a depth inside of yourself where there is a different kind of reality. You can’t stay there because you feel you then have to come back.

This idea of coming back is this process of trying to come back down, grounded into life, where you are destined to go, or meant to be. And so it’s not an easy process to come back because for you to totally come back, what are you really doing? You’re coming back to the essence of everything that was what you discovered in Europe, the essence of something on the other side.

And so if you’re actually coming back into creation, or into life, and yet deep down underneath all of that you’re coming back to something that is the same down here as it is up there, then what is that going to be? Well, up there, there is no manifestation and images and density and all of that stuff going on, and down here all of that sort of thing has evolved as the result of our perceptions, expectations, and ways of imagining and thus there is kind of a collective reality.

However, you find yourself moving around in this to try to find like a type of latent, imbedded, focus and attention, something different, and you can’t find it. Isn’t that amazing? I mean, how does it end?

Jeane: On the edge.

John: Yeah, constantly on the edge, but what is there about you that continues to continue? Your focus and attention to go somewhere. Where do you think you’re going? You’re not sure anymore. You can’t even find the vehicle that’s supposed to transport you back and forth.

And so a dream like this is a hard dream to remember because on the surface it appears to be nothing but something bizarre, but what is it doing in terms of your psyche? It’s kind of keying you into the fact that everything is way bigger than you could have possibly imagined, and yet it is about something.

And so it’s very quick for you to conclude that you’re even further confused over how it is that something is going on in which you’re part of and are trying to flow with. The only thing you have, the best thing you have as your a memo is you just keep on keeping on with a certain focus and attention. And you can try to imagine that you’re going somewhere, but you’re so far off from understanding what is going on, that the whole thing is kind of ludicrous.

You went somewhere to the other side. Whatever happened there is beyond your comprehension. I mean, all you could do was relate it in terms of the dream as if you went to Europe or something to be with family, or felt something or another, and then from there you have to come back into life and into creation. And everything that unfolds, including that story of going to the other side, is all one great big sci-fi movie. And yet, in spite of it all, you are on the edge of your seat trying to continue to keep proceeding.

Isn’t that an amazing dream? The way you see how that is, is the vibration it leaves you in. It leaves you in an interesting vibration, doesn’t it? And it’s like, my gosh, you know, you went through this and you went through that, and it’s like, what a bizarreness. And yet it’s about something.

In your particular case, it’s a type of flow. And in the outer, as you go about doing things, this is all part of the flow. In other words, you tend to see your day-to-day as fairly mundane and whatnot, but is it really mundane? Or is it part of a type of focus and attention that you are applying yourself to, that is about some great experiment, even though you tend to think that 90% of the time you’re doing this, that, or the other, and then following a certain path or a thread or something a little bit of the time?

And you fail to realize that maybe you have a focus and attention in which all of it is meaningful, and the reasons seem bizarre. So, what are the characteristics that are important? What are the characteristics that are important, so that what unfolds has a meaningfulness that penetrates through in terms of the great experiment in terms of all there is? That’s where it starts, and then it’s just sci-fi, because a human being can never ever, ever know what’s going on.

Isn’t that interesting?
