Posts Tagged ‘taking in the whole’

chicagoWe separate ourselves from the oneness of life in many ways. The imagery in John’s dream uses works of art to depict how we focus on singular emotions, or inspirations, and even though what is created may be considered art, it is still a mere fragment and reflection of the whole. The danger is when we think it is everything, when it is not.  (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, how is it that I’m becoming, and what is taking place? What is on the other side of all of these actions, whatever these actions are that I’m doing?

So this starts off as two levels in two layers. First comes the kind of intangible one that is based upon ideas and concepts and reflections of such. That’s the first dream. And the next dream takes it where it is created or turned into something as a manifestation. You have to let go of all of that, both levels, the ideas and thoughts as well as that which it can be turned into objects and images. You have to let go of both in order to take in the whole – or otherwise you’re stealing from the essence and it’s a type of putrification.

So to start off with, I’m at a carnival place where what is there has been replicated from that which was seen from somewhere else. Those who come to see the wonders here are not seeing the real thing. They are seeing wonderful replications.

And, of course, in this particular case the replications have to do with stuff that’s reflected, depictions of things like writings and drawings and paintings, you know ornate things like that that stimulate the way that one wants to see themselves in a way of thinking, in a way of believing, in a way of imagining who they are. A person gets deceived when they think that they are learning something that is genuine.

In the dream there are some incredible replications of writings and drawings that seem original, but I know that they’re from somewhere else and are portrayed as if they are real for someone to sort out, and just maybe take in, but let go of, don’t hold onto them. What happened is these ideas, these drawings, these depictions that I’m looking at, it’s like you have this long area that’s a procession of two together or whatever is passing before you and, all of a sudden, it stops. And it’s real ornate, and then it stops.

Now, the average person doesn’t understand that. They find whatever they see to be incredible, but I know what happened. The reason it stopped is because there is something wrong with revealing, or being, this sort of way, a reviewing that causes one to be this sort of way, in other words, thinking that this is all there is. In other words, it takes away somehow or another when you get caught up in taking that in – as if that is what there is to take in.

The sense is it’s kind of like dangerous to one’s health. Well, what is one’s health? One’s health is the freedom of the overall and to suddenly have this little segregation, that’s not right. The dream doesn’t explain why it’s not right, it just isn’t. And the way I see that it isn’t is I’m suddenly noticing a person who’s enamored with trying to copy down the image of something portrayed as a kind of carnival depiction drawing that is situated and able to pass before them, that extends elaborately, which I know to be incomplete because it wasn’t fully replicated.

But this person, when they start taking it down, they’re not going to realize that it doesn’t go all the way through. I know that it doesn’t, so the person copying this and trying thereby to take it all in by the time they get to the point where it stops, they’re caught, they’re stuck. They’ve taken in what they’ve taken in and off they keep going in some sort of tangent that can’t go anywhere.

So this guy that’s doing this, he thinks he is accessing something imminently important, but I know he is messing up his psyche, which means the soul, by getting indulgent like this. I remember in the dream getting real upset with him because I know he is getting himself lost and doing a damage to himself that he does not know. What he is doing is a form of self-tranquilization. If he knew that he was doing this, he wouldn’t do it. I know it, and know how harmful this is as a form of anesthetization – and I am furious.

The meaning is that everything that there is to see and know takes a person away from that which is so much more. To truly be able to take in all there is a person needs to know how to leave the images alone. Otherwise, you get lost in the reflections and suddenly find yourself acting like they are real.

So that has to do with things that have to do with ideas, drawings, depictions, writings, in other words, something that is portrayed that takes and comes into your causation of how it is that you see things, or perceive things, and therefore separate that and take that out as if that is something that you can capture out of the whole.

And you have the whole sense when you understand this stuff as having gotten something out of the essence, but when you take something out of the essence the rest of that goes away because you’re not meant to hold onto anything, you’re meant to have everything.

lucid-dreamToday’s dreams from Jeane are a continuation of the dream imagery discussed in the post, Letting the Stranger In. What began as a process of trying to embrace a greater Wholeness within, here we see the imagery has progressed to an acceptance and upholding of the new energies that have been accessed. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: It felt like sometimes I would go from that park setting to the home of a childhood friend to visit her mother who’s quite elderly. In outer reality the mother is deceased.

I would go to the home and it would be dark, and I know I would feel like maybe she was expecting me, and the door would be slightly open, but she wouldn’t be in the room right away, and then maybe she’d come.

The first time I went to see her, she had something like one of those very small collies or something, but kind of scruffy, and that dog would kind of walk into the house, I don’t know, kind of a little downbeat.

The second time I went to see her she changed it for a cocker spaniel, which seemed more appropriate for someone her age, which seemed to walk towards me. And again the house would be all dark, and then maybe she was taking me into some inner room in the house, because I know I went and visited there a couple of times.

After all of that I think I had one more image.

John: The first two dreams are building to something like your ability to include a large enough wholeness in your environment. In other words, if you are functioning with too narrow a perspective, then you’re consumed, and your attention is stripped by all of the greater Wholeness variables around you.

However, if you take in the greater Wholeness and the overall perspective around you, then you shift, and you’re able to take in other levels. You’re able to go and relate to the past. You’re able to see something that’s in a slightly different offset or octave.

And of course your dream just makes it look like you’re time-shifted, but you are level-shifted. And the dream is relating something that appears to be strictly mundane in the outer, but it’s how you make sense out of it in terms of manifestation.

You’re actually able to shift and do the work at a deeper level inside you, but you can’t notice this work, and you can’t do this work, and you can’t step into this work when you’re under assault, or attack, or however you would say that, because so much of your time is spent to try to streamline how it is that you are maintaining the Wholeness, which means then that you are exclusionary to things that are important that are in the Wholeness, as if it is important to be exclusionary in order to accentuate something about yourself that you see as important.

And that very process then keeps you alienated from being able to, number one, feel the greater Wholeness of yourself, and then number two, once you have felt the greater Wholeness of yourself, then you are able to naturally shift and take into account other levels, which wouldn’t have been even consciously possible without having become a greater Wholeness yourself – as a precursor step.

Jeane: The last image I remember is I have to get dressed for something, and I go to the display window of a store, and I have to step up into where the displays are. And there’s an outfit laying there in the floor that I pick up, and it is black-and-white, but it’s intricately designed, even with some fringe, and when you put it on it even has a part that fastens over your shoe. It has a little patent black and then some white fringe, so I have to be kind of careful how I put it on because when you put it on you step into it and then you have to pull it up, and it all fits in a particular way.

John: What you’re talking about is what is known as a state. In other words, when you take and you put that on, you go into a particular demeanor or mannerism. It’s not permanent, it’s a state. It’s something that you feel as an energetic for a while.

And so you’re looking at the garment. If you put the garment on, what comes with the garment is a certain energetic state, and then you’re in that energetic state. But that garment is not meant to be permanent. That garment is there just for you to size up, in relationship to taking on or shifting into a certain energetic state.

In order to shift into a certain energetic state, you have to be able to accept the overallness around you. Otherwise, the garment, as presented in front of you, would be an inconvenience or an intrusion into how it is that you’re carrying yourself.

But if you can readily accept what is brought before you, then you can shift into a greater energetic state, and that greater energetic state enhances, and fulfills, and enriches you with a greater Wholeness. Eventually that state becomes a station, meaning that you hold that, and then that is like a means upon which you then are able to shift into other levels.

Because the state no longer is something that just comes and goes, and so you’re able to utilize all of that energy that has flashed in and flashed out, flashed in and flashed out, that has developed a presence, or a Wholeness, or however you’d say it, an auric quality that exudes, we’ll say.

I’m trying to think of how you’d describe that. It exudes maybe as a greater aura. In other words, instead of things bugging you as much, they don’t. You accept and embrace and enjoy them because you’ve allowed yourself to no longer carry the mystique of that being something you have to stiff-arm and keep away from yourself.

So when you allow yourself to be subjected to those kinds of changes, and you are able to then appreciate and take in the breakthrough of that energetic, which is like a state of energy, then that state, as it matures to something that you’re able to hold or sustain, enables you then to utilize that energy for like a next shift, or step, in terms of you, which is then able to take on other levels.

Your dream is a dream about consciousness going forward, basically. In other words, that’s the underlying schematic, and it’s like almost a building block dream. You can’t do it if you just keep drinking the same water that you’re comfortable with. You have to give yourself permission to take into account other things in the overall environment around you.

In other words, let go of a particular projected image that you’re comfortable with, and then you’re able to appreciate and recognize something there that’s trying to allow itself to emerge, that is ordinarily disregarded, or rejected, because it might interfere with your main theme of yourself.

When you take that in, that makes you more Whole, and then being more Whole you’re then able, with that power of energy that you need, you’re then able to shift into other levels. It’s a building block dream.

It’s easy to equate this dream almost from the standpoint in that you know what it’s like when you feel overwhelmed in the heart, and therefore exhausted. You know what that feels like, and when it’s like that, then not only do you not have the proper connection and linkage to the Whole, but until you get the proper connection and linkage to the Whole, where you’re filled in terms of your inner sense, and inner power, and have that connection to hold, then are you able to then shift it into other levels of awareness and responsibility.

The dream is laying out a process of fluidity of understanding, that you are taking a look at inside of you.

John: In the first dream I feel like I’m in a waiting area, where I see a father and his son hanging out. I seem to be there to play games, and the young son wants to play ping-pong. I’m there wondering if I can find a pool table.

In this peculiar dream, even though the father and son seem to be separate from me, it also seems that I’ve given a pool cue to the father as a gift, although I can’t remember anything more than that.

As I look around the room, I realize that in the area where I thought there was a pool table – I have the feeling of waiting around for them to finish so I could have a turn – there really isn’t one. I’m waiting for no reason.

When I realize this, I go down a hallway and look through a door and that’s when I see there’s a racket ball court. 

As I return, the son whines about wanting to leave because there isn’t a ping-pong table. I hope they will leave so I can move around and find the pool table and have the whole place to myself.

Before they leave, I suddenly realize it’s 4:30pm. My flight arrived at 3:30pm, and now it’s 4:30pm and I have to leave again on the plane at 6:00pm.

I haven’t eaten yet. I don’t have time to play pool. I only realize this after going to all the trouble of getting set up to go to a separate room where I could shoot pool for 25 cents an hour. I haven’t got time to do that. I have to leave.

Isn’t that interesting?  Strange dream.

This dream indicates that I’m not fully taking in what’s around me – all that’s there before me. As a result, I’m missing out on the full experience. Part of me wants to leave if I can’t do what I want to do. Another part of me realizes that, even though I’m able to visit this rest and reprieve area, I cannot hang out because I’m scheduled to go to a new place.

So, this is kind of the precursor imagery for going to the new place. The next dream tells about it.

A person is telling others that, this time, what’s being set up is on my terms, referring to me, and not subject to others as before. In other words, the time before was over – it was, perhaps, screwed up in some way – and now is a new time.

The person who is announcing this is the person who’s involved with what I’ll be doing later. This announcement had a wonderful feeling. It felt like everyone was put at ease; everything’s okay now.

Then, in another image I see myself going down an escalator, just willingly going down an escalator and when I look up I see, on a kind of a scaffold and walkway up above, my sister and her husband hanging out. 

He’s on a computer and she’s sitting there. Suddenly she points me out: there I am. I’m leaving and they’ve come to see me off to wherever it is that I’m going. They may not see me again for a long, long time. Out of respect and honor they have come to say goodbye and I wave at them as I go down the escalator out of sight.

What’s the sense of all this? These recent dreams (including The Lost City), have been showing that I’m struggling to take in the larger schematic of life. I’m moving around, but I’m not taking in the important information, which means I’m not really connected to the wholeness.

So these dreams are emphasizing the importance of being open and awakened, and therefore realizing what’s possible. So I’m being reminded before I continue my journey.
