In today’s dream, Jeane describes an image that raises a fundamental question: What is the reason for life? Within that question is a fundamental choice: Do we live this life for our selves (satisfying our ego), or are we meant to live it for a greater purpose within the Whole? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

 Jeane: The next image was a little harder for me to pull out, but it feels like I’m going somewhere. It feels like maybe it’s a parade where they’re selecting Miss America or something like that. It’s going to have a beauty contest involved in it.

On my way there I seem to pick up the responsibility for this little girl. I have a friend that I think comes to help, too. The little girl seems like she’s come from a very privileged home, and is very naïve or inexperienced about certain things.

Rather than have to carry her the whole way, I decide to let her ride a bike. But I just have the parts of the bike, and I start putting it together, and it has these little copper knobs I have to figure out how to connect one part to the other and then it becomes a whole bike.

So I get the bike together – it’s actually a tricycle – but then I realize this girl had come from such a privileged background she actually doesn’t know how to ride it. So then it leaves me with a dilemma of maybe trying to get her to ride it now and then, but actually carrying her and the tricycle to the parade.

I think on the way there I have a couple of stops. I remember at one stop there’s a man that sits down and starts talking to us. He has a uniform on and even though he has a certain light about him, I’m kind of put off because I have the charge of this little girl and you don’t want little kids to talk to strangers, you know.

Then there’s another instant where I have to stop briefly at my house and have my friend watch her while I take a shower. Then it feels like we finally get to wherever the parade and the contest will be.

John: Well, it’s like looking at an older side of yourself and a younger side of yourself. In other words, you make things out of matter – the one element that’s important to making things industrially, it is considered the industrial component to making things out of matter, is copper.

The older part of yourself has learned how to function, and is functioning, in the outer world as if you can do this stuff literally. As if you can make things out of images and reflections, in other words. It is a little bit… goes around and around in circles as part of deluding one’s self, but you can do that.

The younger part of you is a part of yourself that doesn’t know how to ride the bicycle or the tricycle or whatever it is, because it sits in a state of innocence where it hasn’t yet bought into the inflection to the point where it indulges, and then when it indulges then it contends with what it’s like to mess around or play with the tricycle.

The older part of you thinks it has to take charge of this younger part of you that isn’t getting the memo, that hasn’t yet figured it out, that has to be taken care of. And that’s the game that goes on in life. The parents take care of the children, but the way they take care of them is they indoctrinate them into the outer.

And when a baby is born it identifies with the soul level, and it stays with that identification on the soul level until that ego starts to be developed in its nature. And then the development of that ego causes it to find its own way and mannerisms in terms of coping in the outer. And it’s said that a baby as it is in the in-between phase, is kind of in a type of protective security where it doesn’t hurt itself or fall down. It’s almost like it has a guardian angel over it, and then slowly but surely that even disappears.

And the child is supposed to have developed certain traits for coping purposes and it comes into taking this on on its own. As a consequence you then are caught in the outer. You described almost a depiction between some deep part of yourself that is able to be outside of the outer identifications, and then the part of you that has gotten caught in the identifications.

Then you’re seeing that you, in this state, are of the opinion that you have to indoctrinate those conditions upon the younger part of yourself as opposed to, what if the younger part of yourself had it right all to begin with, but is being compelled to be in the outer and adopt all of these traits as part of some sort of game or journey that the soul has to make?

If it’s a game and a journey that the soul has to make then why, what’s the reason? Well, the only reason that one can give is to gain a deeper sense of the divine, of the connection that one has to the Whole, to gain that in a more deepened awakened intimate sense.

That’s the only reason that one can think for that making sense, because otherwise it looks like a dirty rotten trick – and it’s the opposite. In other words, when you see it like that, you’re inclined to think that what’s going on is the opposite of what should be going on. And yet what’s to say that you can’t have the awareness of the essence, like the child in terms of its soul, in terms of an encompassing quality that sweeps in and takes in everything in the universe, and then also hold that, maintain that, carry that, emanate that into the outer in which you have everything all defined and confined?

Who’s to say that you can’t somehow or another do both? If you are able to somehow or another do both, then from the state that is confined and defined and identifying with things, there is a great sense of reverence and appreciation to the greater Whole of itself, that is everything.

And that would be getting closer to what is the essence. That would be the means of the essence of being able to experience that essence while in a human body, so to speak. That’s kind of the game.

That’s why following dreams is so difficult, because what you tend to see in a reflection could cause you to draw a whole different conclusion, could cause you to draw the conclusion that there is something about the child that’s amiss that has to be indoctrinated into the world that you’re in.

And what if it’s the other way around? In other words, the whole spiritual journey process is not based upon the teacher taking and showing an acuity about this, that, and the other in the outer. Instead, the teacher reflects the ability to let go of it all and therefore what comes across is a huge inner depth that is free – and that inflects across. A purity like that inflects across.

So we accept this under those conditions, but we don’t accept it when it’s portrayed as little child to us as adult, kind of thing. We find something wrong with the little child, but if we find something wrong with the little child, then why don’t we find something wrong with the teacher who takes us back to that essence?

John: This particular dream is trying to sort out an energetic. It has both the ancient and current aspects, just like your dream (see The Surrender Process).

As this dream starts off, I’m looking at a company that has land leases in an area where I used to spend time when I was younger. Because of the way it’s now being used, it’s not how I remember it, so I’m trying to make sense out what I’m seeing.

I’m studying this area because I’ve been invited to get involved with this holding company; there’s a feeling that there’s something to the land, but I don’t know. I’m trying to establish if going forward with this project makes any sense.

The company has control over the key access corridors, which is good. I know this because of my remembered knowledge of the land – I used to run (flow) freely there as a child. Yet I notice now that there is an adjacent property that I never paid much attention to before. As I look, I see a tanker truck.

It’s the type of truck that would hold natural gas or fluids, which I take to be injection chemicals some company is using as part of their extraction discovery process. As I stare at this tanker, in my mind I am wondering how it works.

I’m surprised that I’ve returned to this area, which was quiet and dormant when I was young, to find that I’m looking at doing a project in the same place so many years later. Back then, it was just property I took for granted as being part of the neighborhood. I flowed freely about and played in it. Now the same area is thought to be carrying some potential, which needs further enfoldment.

The meaning here is that I am trying to evaluate the energetic potential of this area. I’m aware that I’d taken this area for granted when I was growing up but, now that I’m more awakened in life, I see that it has tremendous potential within.

What I’m trying to reconcile in this image is how I feel about the current situation. I liked the feeling of the place when I was in a state of innocence (amnesia) and it was wide open and didn’t attract the interest of anyone.

Now you might say there’s a type of stickiness to the place. I haven’t fully determined what the potential might be, yet I sense that there’s something there that I have to take responsibility over.

So I don’t know the depth or scope of what is to be further revealed. I mean, even that isn’t really clear because in the dream I haven’t convinced myself that this area is worth developing. Of course, seeing this tanker truck indicates that someone else is probing. I get the sense that nothing significant has happened yet.

I’m at the stage where I have to decide if it makes sense for me to commit further. This energetic from my inner, dream life, is no different than what I’m trying to sort out about living in Vegas. First, I have an ancient memory about Vegas back before it was discovered. Today this same ancient undeveloped property has been discovered but only discovered in a certain capacity – there’s something even deeper behind it.

It’s a latent inner treasure, in other words, that has yet to be revealed. I’m not sure how I actually feel about what currently exists in Vegas. I need to establish what the treasure there is before I can commit further to the surrounding neighborhood.

Yet somehow I feel that the most precious of holdings are at my disposal. I am trying to establish the best course of action – that feels energetically right – before I take the next step deeper within. The way to go further within has not yet been revealed. I’m still in shock that what had been ancient stomping grounds has become the epicenter of my inner path.

What I’m noticing is that your dreams relate more to the foundational core of where we are, meaning the building, and I’m aspiring to the light and brightness of things in terms of the surrounding area. You see the building as the epicenter of the inner space of your beingness.

What’s interesting is how you’re going to sort out the shiny part from the tacky part, as I try to sort out whatever treasure is supposed to be buried here that hasn’t yet come through.
