A Core Shift

letter-from-the-universeThese dreams point out a core struggle on the path of development: how do we make the shift from thinking we are in service to the whole, to actually being in service to the whole? Because our egos will make the issue very blurry. But here’s a good test: does what you’re doing bring an energetic uplift? But that’s still a fine line because our psychologies can reward us, too, when we do good by them. But is our intention personal, or universal?

Jeane: I don’t remember my dreams really well last night. They were kind of odd. In one dream it’s like I’ve come across these instruments and they look kind of like… I think they’re called sassoons or something, you know, like they’re a wind instrument that’s really large, almost as tall as a person and they come down. They kind of come up again where something blows out, except that end where you blow out, these are huge, and then the end that you blow out of is actually separate from the end that you blow into.

And what I’m doing is I’m getting busy attaching the end that you blow out of to the end that you blow into, because they’re separated. And there’s either some kind of a contest, or a war, going on. I’m not sure which.

After I’ve done that, it feels like I get some kind of almost like petrified wood or something that you actually will blow out of one end, so that’s kind of weaponized these things, large pieces of it or something that can fit in the end. Because it’s like these dreams, a lot of these dreams, seem to have to do about being at battle. That was the first dream.

John: The degree to which they had to do with battle is the degree to which you create a certain kind of cloud or confusion, in terms of yourself, because the idea in the sense of battle has to do with some sort of personal entanglement engagement.

However, the image of blowing with your breath is an image of bringing something down and through, and from that you’re able to make a sound or have an effect upon something in manifestation, which is an image that has to do with bringing something from inner into outer.

So when you put the fragments together it’s like you’re sorting out the engagement of making a connection that takes your awareness and brings it down, with the out-breath, into life. But to the degree that that attention is contaminated by the idea of a battle, or something else going on that is affecting your dynamic in some capacity, that you have to wrestle or contangle with, to the degree that that’s in there, that’s personal. That gets in the way of the flow.

Jeane: My second dream it seems like I was working at one agency as a therapist, and I’ve left and I’ve gone to another agency and I’m working kind of in administrative work, but clerical work, in a way like maybe in records, and how things are put away, and kept track to have them filed that supports the whole system. And that system is getting kind of chaotic, or falling apart a bit. And I’m fairly good at it because, to me, it’s all part of supporting, helping people, and it’s giving me a look at how things work.

And I’m meeting with someone that I think is really good at it to discuss with her how she’s handling it, as there are changes going on in the agency there, making it fall apart a bit, and what I can learn from that.

And then it feels like I’m going to be leaving, and when I leave and I go back it’s like I’m having a dialogue with some people I used to work with, because I think in a way I have a different perspective from having worked at all layers in an organization. And it’s kind of interesting to me, so when I go back I go back to working with people as a therapist, or is it helpful to them that I’ve actually worked in other parts of the system.

It seems to be like I might think that maybe they think if you’ve been away from it, that you lose something, but on the other hand, they may feel that you gain something because you’ve seen how the other parts of the system work – and even when they don’t work.

John: That is a big dilemma for me as well, from the standpoint that I always think that some of the sophistication and focus that I have that does certain things, that has an involvement in terms of how things work kind of in an outer consequence or systematic way, is important in terms of a process. And the dilemma with that, is those systems and that process can be falling apart. I could have it wrong as to whether it’s important.

However, the activity that I find myself doing, that gives me a certain joy or pulls my attention into something that is meaningful as an expression, that I make into life, that feeds me in some capacity.

The dilemma that one has is to what degree do you identify with, or take what it is that you have as an aspect of the systematic development that involves the personal? To what degree is that important in relationship to just being able to function in a way that uplifts the whole, that is directly into life?

In other words, it may or may not be a culmination of everything that you’ve gone through. In other words, to what degree do you have to look back at the building blocks that has systematically brought you up to a particular point? To what degree is that still important in terms of looking back at the system of things?

In other words, you’re sorting this out, because if you go back and you look at the systems of things and notice that they are falling apart, and your attention is upon that as if that is important, you can develop or take on a type of sadness because that may not be directly the work that is intended. And yet how do you let go of that because how do you know that it isn’t part of the general overall matrix that’s meant to be?

In other words, you can still see or find yourself thinking that that has to also occur, and about the only way you could best sort it out is that when something unfolds that is of benefit to a bigger schematic, or direct aspect of manifestation, and that feeds you, and that uplifts you, and then you take that and put it up next to the process of what you feel it takes to systematically unfold. They could be two different things. It’s a part again of getting aligned in terms of the changes and the shifts that are occurring in life, and in manifestation. And the secret and the key here is to be able to bring into manifestation what manifestation needs and not necessarily some ideation.

Enriching the Banquet

Giulio Romano

No one wants to be called a parasite, but if we look at the arc of human history we can see that we have mostly taken, from the planet and from each other, with little or no consideration to give back. Yet we are designed to contribute to life in a way that is unique among all living things: we are capable of enhancing everything we come in contact with. And that is speaking of energetic enhancement, in our intentions to help, to support, to witness everything around us, and to offer into life our unique gifts. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: The difference between my dreaming and your dreaming is at least I started off with something that makes life joyous; then I go sci-fi. And that which makes life joyous is very, very important to the evolution and the change in life because you have to have that joyousness as a thread to work with. You can’t walk around dour.

The process still continues if you walk around dour, but it would be nicer if you could walk around elated about things, and touching things, so that it has an aliveness that comes to pass, and then that furthers the overall process – and others are participating in it and don’t even know it, and they’re participating in it because of the fact that we’re intertwined and some of it bleeds off on them.

So in my meditation dream I am at a place where there’s a large banquet reception meal that is being served. Everyone is sitting around, but somehow or another I’m part of the staff, too, and so I am seeking to be involved in a way that does the most for the general overall well being and experience. I am trying to figure out what is the most effective and appreciated way to plug in.

The suggestion is that I come up with a means to provide peaches, and other fruit and side items, that everyone would appreciate, that in and of themselves take up too much room to be passed around and need to be served as something that augments the main course. I come upon the idea that I can prepare a cart, I guess you’d say, or something like a cart, in which there are bowls and stuff on it of cut up peaches and obviously other things.

Peaches is the main example I was shown, but it could be grapes and cottage cheese and stuff like that, that you don’t normally have as part of a main meal that some people might want the peaches, some might want the grapes, some might want some cottage cheese or something. You know, whatever it is that just tends to augment each person’s particular predilection – at that exact moment in time. And it’s just available for them and I cycle around with this cart behind this huge, huge banquet table and each person would have this and it facilitates their enjoyment and joy in the meal. In other words, what I am doing enhances the experience, appreciation, and overall well being of the feast.

The meaning is, is that in this dream I am finding what enriches and enhances the joy of life, because the key to this is things get excited when this is possible. They’re not just eating a mundane meal. There are accoutrements and other things that add to it, that are spontaneous in the moment, that add something neat.

So, we are all here in manifestation trying to make the best of our journey, but rarely do we find the means to make the most of an unfolding expression of service that is done in a joyful way. The highest service is to be able to touch the lives of others in a heartfelt and inspiring way.

In this dream I have found a way to do this for others in a memorable and uplifting way. Not only is this joyous for me to do, it doesn’t take anything away from the well being of anyone else, either. It just enriches the banquet that everyone is partaking of, on level after level, in a quiet, subtle, and natural way.

Return to the Planet

Spaceship-brian-fiesFollowing the dream from yesterday’s post (see Call of Duty),  Jeane had this dream image of returning to the alien planet. Because she has everyone’s tickets for the journey, she can be seen as taking on the responsibility of what has awakened in her, yet it’s not without its obstacles. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Then it feels like in the second dream, later in the morning, I’m trying to maybe get back to that planet from wherever I’ve been. And there are several of us that have to go, either I think two other people and myself, and then there’s a young person, I think a man, that’s helping us because we’re running to catch the plane or the transportation to the other planet.

And the people I’m with have gotten way ahead of me, but I realize I have the tickets, which are kind of strange looking, they must be about three feet long and only an inch wide. So I’ve got them all gathered in one hand, and I’m running down this hallway.

And I think this kid who is helping me, maybe had gotten the tickets for me, and then is running with me so we can catch up with the others. And I’m concerned that they’ll get there and they won’t realize they don’t have their tickets, or maybe they’ll get a little lost because we know the way better.

At the last minute it’s like I just run and jump and get on the back of the rocket ship, or whatever, that takes us there, or get inside it. Well, now I’m inside it, and I know the others are there somewhere. Now I have the dilemma of, did we remember our passports? It wasn’t like I was carrying anything, except then I see I have one of those little pods again, those little egg-shaped pods that you carry, that I seem to keep things in so I start opening it up.

It actually looks like a miniature ship inside. It’s kind of mechanical. Sure enough, stuffed in among the gears as I go scrambling through it is my passport, so I figure the others must have their passports, too. Now we just have to remember the way from the airport to wherever we go once we land.

John: Those dreams are easier to understand when you do an all feminine dream, because trying to understand it in the overallness is kind of difficult, because my mind tends to work and look at it in kind of a linear progressed way of looking at things. But you’re presenting a very linear progressed way of looking at things, and so it’s easier to understand.

The theme of course is this sense of following a responsibility, or a duty, in relationship to an understanding that’s awakened inside of you, and you’re having to confront various things that compromise it.

On the first dream, it was the idea of creating another way of rationalizing a self-gratification. In other words, it’s on another planet, so it’s okay. In the next dream, the tickets are like your orders, or your duty, and everything around the tickets and the composure of all of that has an anxiety to it.

So when you get speeded up, or anxious, you again betray the natural sense of being able to sit back and know, and feel, and carry, and recognize what is meant to be. So the key word again is veils, like one of the ways that you veil yourself from the bigger picture is like in the first dream, you veil yourself by creating a rationalization as to why something can exist because it’s about this over here, as opposed to something more direct.

And another rationalization that veils, although you wouldn’t call this word rationalization, you would call it an inability to hold the focus and attention or something, because there’s the anxiety that races out, and then that destroys the cadence, the presence, the auric nature of yourself, which can hear and catch up with and recognize what is needed in terms of tickets, and duty, or orders, or how it is that you’re meant to be in terms of the equation of things. If you get over anxious, then you abandon ship too.

The dream had the same subject in general. It just had within the dream two different ways in which you confine or constrict yourself in terms of hearing, and being with, that awakening, or that sense of greater knowingness.
