Often we separate out our regular life from our spiritual life, or have a disconnect between our higher self and our lower self. In this dream we have an aspect of the dreamer in the mountains, while another aspect of the dreamer is in the world, offering service. What our journey can make possible is that the part of us that is always in the clean, quiet mountains, our higher self, is always influencing what the part of us is doing that is engaged with worldly things.

Jeane: I just have some impressions from my deeper dream. One of them was in the dream I had something on my right shoulder that I reached back to scratch, and then I actually found something embedded and pulled it out.

The only reason I knew it was a dream, and not real, was it’s an area of my shoulder I actually can’t reach; it felt so real.

John: That came up in a dream that I shared in the group in terms of an effect. I shared this and I said what’s happening is, in my dream, I saw all these kinds of spots or something on my back. And they were okay, I was okay with them, except for one that had somehow another erupted; by erupting meant put deeper roots down inside, and that that was something that couldn’t be handled casually – that was something that had to be dug out.

And so I had to go to an expert to dig that out. And, in the dream, the expert was Ethel Kennedy. And so then I reached around and I touched the spot where it was on the back, and she pointed out: that’s the spot where you hit the heart indirectly.

Jeane: That was the part where I was digging out something, too. And then it was almost like a waking dream because my sleep dream I couldn’t remember. And in the waking dream it’s like we’d gone to India, but you’d gone into the mountains, and I was left in the city, so I was a little sad about our separation.

But then I had to figure out what to do in the city, and so I was going to go to the school and maybe try to teach some of the Tai Chi, or Qi Gong, or see if they needed help with the English, but I had to try to figure out what to do while you were in the mountains. And that’s all I remembered – everything else was too deep.

John: So you’re trying to figure out what to do while I was in the mountains. What you’re talking about is first there’s the recognition that a capacity that comes from a heartfulness, a heartfulness that is able to take in all that is happening from any kind of mindfulness, or sight, even, the heartfulness has to be there.

And that has to be dealt with in a way that isn’t readily apparent, but still permeates through everything. And so that was the meaning behind an Ethel Kennedy: that which was visible in the outer has a hidden effect. And then, in your dream, you take and you create the pattern parallel, again, and you point out that there is this aspect that has to be dug out to create a greater capacity, of a heartfulness, from a way that one is currently.

That’s kind of okay, so to speak, but still has this one thing that’s like a plague, a barrier, to the heartfulness, to a quality of a capacity. Then you flip it to what that means in terms of, again, a greater beingness. 

And so something stays above, which is me in the mountains, you go into a whole other way of coming out, or so it seems, you put the two together and it’s kind of functioning in a void. Your sense of going to India without the capacity of another aspect of yourself, a quality that is me we’ll say, that lies somewhere else, is the image of being able to do something in life that isn’t readily apparent.

That doing of something into life is an effect of a vibration that mirrors itself into things without being readily seen, without being readily identified, as the doer. It’s a connection to something that flows through you. And then what rises up, that is so much more, is the consequence that causes something to shift. It’s the degree to which something coming from inner into outer comes across.

Well, in your dream, you don’t quite pull it out like that. In your dream you still have the part that’s above, as an innerness, as a connectivity connection as an innerness, and then you have the action that you’re doing that is a type of action that doesn’t, for all intents and purposes, seem to have anything to do with your usual day-to-day.

But, at a depth deeper within, is something kind of there that emanates, through a feeling quality, to something more. And what emerges from all of that makes sense in a greater capacity. 

And all of that opens the heart, but opens the heart that needs to be opened in a way that has to do with a greater capacity – as opposed to a distinct way that is recognized. What that means is, this way of being, in the cohesion of the energetic, causes an absorptive process to occur; a sweeping in, sweeping up kind of effect.
