Why do we start on a spiritual journey? Usually it’s because we feel an urge inside of us that can’t be quenched any other way. The shocking truth, however, is that discovering that merely means you have found the beginning of the path – the real work lies ahead. And that requires that we shift our lives from a planet-based perspective (career, family, etc.), to a more universal perspective (being in service to what created us). But, of course, it’s not easy to let go of everything we know and trust in something bigger than ourselves – but it is necessary.

John: So in my dream I start off reviewing where I had gone yesterday. In other words, yesterday is where I realized that you sometimes do things that are to your detriment – in terms of obvious outer appearance – but it’s because you’re holding onto something on the inner that you hope, in terms of potentiality, will come through.
And yesterday how I saw that was a magnification effect showing how that expanded, as opposed to it going down the same deleterious way, or roadway. This time, as I review this, I find out the name; the place where I had been has a name. Again I’m creating this into a dream image, so I’m going back into this energetic. I’m going back to like on a thread that goes this way, and this thread is called Springtime Road.
And Springtime Road, where it’s at is it sits at the edge of two separate states. You know, by separate states, two separate conditions. It’s way out there, in other words, and that’s how I know it’s out on the frontier border. In other words, way off the beaten track, and it’s a place where I am required to do things, or allow things to happen to me, that are not in my personal best interest – and even to my detriment, from a personal perspective, but done anyway because deep down I know that there is a greater potentiality awakening.
It’s a potentiality, that’s a key word. It doesn’t mean it can happen. I could poison it in some other way. It’s an attempt for something to come through. This doesn’t mean it can be a for sure thing, however, because I am still caught up in a lower-self nature that contaminates. The issue is, can I simply let things happen and quietly bear the weight of surrendering? In other words, there’s a weight, and when you totally surrender, of course, it drops away. So the attempting surrendering is awkward; there’s a lot of weight there because it’s not really surrendering.
If not, the essence deep within that needs to be left free in order to awaken will lose heart. To lose heart means a potentiality goes away, gets lost. Last night I went back out to this place again. I made a turn onto what seemed familiar to me. It wasn’t labeled, but I faintly recognized it from yesterday. This was Springtime Road at a different place along it. Isn’t that an interesting dream?
What is going on – and additional dream information: I am suffering. I can’t stand where things are at around me. I need to stop. An important coloration and its heartfulness is burdened. The reflective image is seeing a person… Okay, this is like a dream now, with additional information. I’m seeing a person that is caught up in his day-to-day existence, singing to himself a song that I remember from long ago. In other words, I am watching this. This person I can just barely hear him. He isn’t singing it for me. He is singing it off to one side because it sort of touches something inside for him.
The song is very faint in the background, in other words, because like he is doing this not for anybody else’s benefit, but I’m noticing this going on. It’s in the background of where I’m at. This guy is not a singer, I just happened to be able to overhear him. The tune if familiar. It sounds a little bit like “Swanee River,” with the words changed a bit to fit an inner unfoldment just out of reach. That’s why I can’t quite pull it through, but there’s a note there that I can faintly hear. That’s how a potentiality feels to begin with: it’s a note that you can barely, barely catch.
So the meaning is, in putting the two dreams together, in order for something important in life to come through I need to step aside. The process of stepping aside is painful, but has to be done because a bigger game is afoot. I will not be able to be part of the unfoldment of an awakening process in life if I am unable to get out of the way.
Springtime Road is a horizon where the border edge exists between this awakening essence and my limited perspective. The person singing to himself to touch what is important is reflective of my condition in which there is an echo to something so much more astir in me if I can bring it out quietly. In the dream there is a problem that is keeping the free flow in check, and of course I understand that the singer is part of myself, and because I can’t pull it out, and the singer is singing, and the tune has changed, and the words are changed, and there’s something there. I know that the thing is disjointed. So that’s that dream.
