Stillness vs. MovementWe often speak about the energetic effects that we can have on things around us – if we are developed or connected in our lives. That can seem hard to imagine sometimes, but it might be more clear when we think about someone who is comfortable in an emergency situation. The fact that they are not in a panic, and that they can take charge, can bring relief and calm to everyone in the room. We could say that person has a development in that specific area of their life – usually through prior experience. In spiritual development, our connections could allows us that ability to give what is energetically needed in any type of situation – whether we’ve experienced it before, or not.

John: In the meditation one really goes on an extreme and sets the tone. In the meditation dream I am shown the importance of an energetic unfoldment whenever I take in more than what I expect. When I take an unfoldment for granted, I am apt to get in the way of a natural process.

By holding onto the outer unfoldment, I get in the way of life’s natural ebb and flow, energetically. See, so I’m above all of this in a way; I’m in a different state, which makes me feel almost crazy.

I am meant to embrace the flow from within, and not experience the unfoldment as a kind of outer agreement world duality. I hurt myself over and over when I conduct myself as if I am entitled, instead of appreciating the natural overall unfoldment from within.

So, in the first dream, big story on this first dream, I’m in a large building. It’s kind of like a brick building. I guess you’d consider it a humongous house, although it doesn’t look like a house. It looks like an apartment building or something. It’s got halls in it and stuff like that, but I guess it’s more like a big house.

And it’s very late at night. Everyone’s in bed, and I suddenly notice a change in the energy, something’s about to happen. And, as I look out the window, I see a bunch of guys who are racing along, as if they’re militia or something, but they’re like a gang, and they are breaking into the buildings.

And they have it down to a timing. They’re break in and abduct everybody, and torture them or whatever they do, and they knock off building after building in ten seconds or less. And so I see them coming. I see how fast they’re going, and so I look for a place to hide.

I go into the corner of what would be my father’s bedroom, although I don’t see him in bed and there’s like a little well or like a depression where light comes out. You know you see those often times along sidewalks or something where there’s a cut down, a lower spot.

Well, this bedroom has a little lower spot like that, and a light down there. And there happens to be a bunch of mesh wire, so I jump down in that hole and pull this mesh wire over the top to hide myself down there. I don’t have time to do anything else. You know, I don’t even have time to address the light down there. I’m going to have to hope that it doesn’t shine through the mesh. In and of itself, why would anyone disturb the wire mesh laying there, unless they had a reason to?

So the bad dudes break into the place, abduct everyone, and go about whatever it is that they’re doing in terms of terrorizing, and torturing, or whatever it is that they’re doing. Unfortunately the light does shine through the mesh, and so the leader of the banditos sees this and says, “El macho” which I take to mean man of the house hiding down there.

Yeah, it had more than just that. Yeah, it did. You’re not going to pull the wool over his eyes. So he pulls off the mesh and I’m abducted. But he doesn’t torture me like the others, and we even seem to carry on a conversation in a normal way. And the whole time he has my sister all twisted and contangled in knots, as he’s doing his thing, afflicting people.

But I’m calm through all of it. It’s as if nothing’s going on. I’m just casually talking saying, “Well, I saw you guys coming. I happen to be up even though everyone was asleep.” And I’m indicating that I was watching them and I say, “What did you guys give yourself in terms of timing, ten seconds or so to break in to each place?” You know, just real casually, it is what it is, and his reply is, “Yeah, that’s about right.” So I mean you have this chitty chatty rapport.

Then suddenly, I don’t know, out of the blue, I guess the panhandlers are out late at night, and there’s this panhandler and he comes by and he acts as if, there’s people, maybe he can get a handout? And his eyes get really big as he sees what is going on but, you know, he’s an idiot. He is harmless, but still could be a problem from what he saw.

And so I say to the big boss, the main bandito, “I wouldn’t let him go if I were you. He looks like a problem. I mean he reacted, see? He could blither away somehow.” Of course this guy notices it, too.

He grabs the guy. He acts like he’s infuriated, pulls out a knife like he’s going to kill him on the spot – but he can’t do that. He’s not quite that kind of guy. And then he says to himself, that in the future, in other words if something were to happen and he’s caught and he’s brought before justice for prosecution, because he’s adequately terrorized everybody, that he can see five abstentions meaning, you know, they won’t say anything because they don’t know what could possibly happen if they talked. And then one person who talks, and of course that could be this guy.

And so he then, as if he’s commenting about it all, as if he’s reviewing everything in the scenario and he’s saying, everyone that he’s dealing with is acting according to Hoyle. You know, they get terrorized, they take all of this stuff going literally. But he indicates that he’s impressed by one man, and I know that that’s me because nothing fazes me. I’m not freaked out like everyone else. I’m just going along with the situation in a calm and balanced way.

The meaning is, the dream is portraying a demeanor that is able to take into account everyone as they are with an understanding and acceptance. To be like this is to reside beyond self-imposed limitations.

I see myself as being everything. In other words, I’m in an all-pervasive wholeness. I am like that because I do not subrogate my nature. By subrogate means repress and do some sort of cram down which is where you get all caught up in the affairs of the outer. That’s another way of looking at subrogation. And whenever you suppress something, then your natural energetic, which is all-inclusive, then is confined to having to sustain the energetic to keep something hidden, repressed, defense mechanism.

I am able to notice idiosyncrasies; ordinarily you don’t notice them because you’re shut down yourself. You’re always looking at yourself, kind of thing. When you think you’re looking at something, you can’t actually see it straightaway, but I’m able to notice the idiosyncrasies but do not judge or shut down. In that regard, I am like a light that is not put out. Or another twist on el macho, the main man, able to resonate a stillness into the overall.
