imagesIf everything begins with energy, then religions are energies, too. When a person follows a religious path, they connect to the energies of that path. But energy is never static, it is always moving and evolving. That’s why it is important to connect to the energetic aspects of any particular path, and not just adhere to the unchanging written words, because it is always about the connection. If we are connected to an energy, we have access to the intelligence of that energy, and what it holds, today, not just what it was holding a thousand years ago. And this is important for the same reasons that we don’t use medical procedures from a thousand years ago.

John: And so then I had this dream in my sleep that I kind of wanted to ignore. For some reason I just seemed to have a hard time wanting to wake up and write up a dream. And so what was happening is that I was going back into this prior meditation dream, only this time the energetic, that had been destabilizing, like a fire and a destruction of things, had been diffused.

And, as a consequence, I could look at people who had come out of a house and into the outer, and just be able to aimlessly move about. Be easy going, not have to carry some quality of a vibration about them to have to contend with things.

There was also something very interesting about this house, in that it had a stairway built like a kid might build a tree fort, where you can climb up, and it’s wooden, and it goes from various main trunks to various main trunks. Looks kind of flunky, and it’s not really a house, it’s up in the air.

Well, this house had this stairway, and it looked a little flunky, it didn’t do anything for the appearance of the house, but it had this wooden stairway that was built upon the fire exit. And a person told me that, if it weren’t for this stairway, he wouldn’t be able to come and go. The front door entrance to this place, he couldn’t go in that way because it didn’t get to this part of the house that was way up high. It was shut off, somehow or another, from that kind of an approach.

And the place this stairway went to, on the upper floor of the house, could be accessed no other way. And if you hadn’t told me this, I was about to consider it maybe an eyesore, it was out of place in terms of the conventional way of looking at things.

And then there was also another aspect of the dream, I guess as I must have been pondering this more, in which I took the inside way up high, I went through a narrow window, and it was just straight up and down. And I realized I was in trouble because I was so far up in the air, couldn’t climb down, can’t jump down. And I woke up realizing, I’m not sure I can climb back into this narrow window.

So, what is going on? Well, in the prior dream, I reached an inner acceptance, in which all that existed was in the heart, and there was no barrier of outer energetic projection. The putting of everything into the heart, as an absorptive forgiving, is a union to a oneness, in which deviation and separation go away, they just blink right out. It happens that fast, which is surprising. One minute you’re disturbed, and the next minute you’re calm.

To find this again was not possible, meaning to find the deviation and separation and anxiety is not possible, when the all-pervading stillness is what remained in its place. In other words, I would have had to violate that stillness, and so I’m not going to do that. So to find this other is not possible; it just blinks out, like I say, it just gets absorbed.

And what’s also interesting is when it’s absorbed like that, where there had been the vibrational complexities, that caused outer motif reactions and such, what existed now in its place is a rejoicing and joyousness that rose up out of the stillness. I mean, that actually hardly makes sense because how can you have that – and you have a stillness? It’s like that got transmuted. Behind what is a vibrational characteristic is really something meant to be joyous and rejoicing.

And so then, in this dream, the image of going into the outer with ease, and a calmness, is kind of a given, this dream starts out that way, coming and going back and forth, like an inner into outer, and outer back to the inner, whatever, without the vibrational complexities. And where access to a place at the top of this house had not existed before, a new way was devised. The wooden stairway may have looked a bit out of place, but it enabled access to a room at the top of the house that would have been cut off, and not known about, if not for this.

I suppose time and effort could have resulted in the opening up of an inner corridor to this place that existed way up high. And then you could put in a window to see out. However, how could you come and go except under a prescribed inner way that would have its definitions and such, because I tried to go out that window and found myself limited, I was way up high, I couldn’t come down. So, I had no option other than to follow some sort of system that, in and of itself, had a defined modality.

So, the meaning is that the conventional spiritual paths may seem good, and sound good, and work under carefully prescribed circumstances, but they do have their limitations in terms of enabling a simple, inner into outer, and for the outer to recognize an inner. So it appears that for this period of time and evolution, the system has been modified. The person using the stairway built upon a one-way, energetic fire exit basically said it very well. If not for this odd-looking stairway he wouldn’t be able to come and go, or be here.

So the significance, of course, is what triggered this dream was, I was listening to a tape and the seed thought of this tape, or an important statement that was made on this tape, is that the consciousness is constantly changing – in terms of the way things are evolving – and that the spiritual paths have to change to accommodate that. What may have been kind of the depth of something is not necessarily the workable format for now.
