Posts Tagged ‘the in-breath and the out-breath in dreaming’

There are many types of abuse in life, not just in the external, but on the inner landscapes as well. For a dreamer, it can be a way to show the “relationship” is no longer working. But what relationship? It could be an old defense mechanism that causes more problems than it fixes, or any number of psychologies we use to navigate life. Add to that, our inner masculine and feminine and the constant tug of war between these different viewpoints and approaches. Sometimes a higher perspective can bring clear air.

Jeane: So, in the second dream I remember, okay, there’s a woman that’s had a long term relationship with a man. And, in this relationship, he’s actually been somewhat abusive to her, in that he’s gone out with me and he’s gone out with other women. And he’s not really there for her. But she seems to stay in the relationship. 

So I’ve taken her up to the rooftop of a building and even jumped myself across from that rooftop to the rooftop on another street. And because I feel like up here on the rooftops, when she looks out over the city, maybe she can better look at that relationship and see that he’s not really faithful, and he’s in some way somewhat abusive. 

And I want her to come with me or move on from that. But I recognize, even though I tell her what he’s done, I realize that she’s really not going to leave that relationship. So I just have to move ahead on my own without her.

John: Well you’re trying to portray another aspect of letting go – I’m not sure I agree with the image of how you’re doing it, but you’re trying to create the letting go as if you can take and go into a whole different schematic, like up on the top of a rooftop or something. Or, in other words, away from the density of something that is more rooted, and more basic, and more guttural. 

And that, somehow or another, then, there is a sense of freedom from which one can just transition, or leave, or let go. But I’m not sure that it quite works that way. I think you have to let go in creation, because you’re doing this on an in-breath.

Jeane: I felt like, from the rooftop, you could get a perspective that she wasn’t using when she was kind of more down in it. 

John: Yes, it’s an in-breath; you’re doing it from an in-breath. I’m used to a perspective of seeing the vibrational stillness as it first comes out, as a thought, and yet it’s still just close to the stillness. When you’re going to the top of something you’re aspecting it again towards a proximity of the stillness, but on the in-breath side of things. 

I mean, the most dense point is the point all the way down to the bottom of the breath, actually, it’s so dense and so compact, that that’s where it’s a clarity point, too, because you can be at a point where you can truly let go, or at least have the potential of letting go because it’s just too dense to handle. 

And the flip side of that, I guess, is trying to get a clarity and a spaciality – I suppose people do that. I suppose that is the way it kind of works – developing an understanding and a recognition of something. It still is on the breath, though. You’re still looking at something on the breath, and going into the river. Still  you’re trying to go high on the breath letting go of something. I guess it’s all kind of the same. 

Ultimately I believe we just have to let go of the breath completely. I guess it does need to be looked at from the standpoint of high on the in-breath, just like I look at it high on the out-breath coming down, which is near that. And when it gets like that, maybe it still has to take that last step of letting go completely of the breath, however, just like something that’s coming down as the first thought from the stillness has a pent-upism, you know, to be lived into life, just like the other is a letting go, to go into the stillness.

There isn’t the degree of pain upon the mirror of the heart when you have that recognition, but it still has a small aspect of the breath, it’s still not into the emptiness and the total stillness. But it’s interesting. It’s interesting to note that that’s what it looks like to be high on the in-breath again. 

I would say that’s even above the angelic – as far as a place on the breath – because you don’t necessarily have a value orientation there. You’re kind of at the last thresholds of exasperatingly letting go; exasperatingly in terms of running into the river. The letting go to the recognition of something more, high on the in-breath.

Only in a purely energetic form are we impervious to the vagaries of life. As humans, we are constantly aware of the weather, the pressure from the culture, from people, and from obligations, plus our own internal pressures. Even the land we live on, the ground itself and what’s deep below, can have an effect on our moods and mannerisms. As we evolve, we can consciously alleviate some of these pressures by being aware of them, but not being swayed by them. In the living of that is where freedom is found.

John: My dream and your dream both are dreams that deal with an aspect on which one is found in the breath. 

And, in my aspect of the breath, there is the issue of timing, and then what that looks like in terms of the change – when the timing is invoked in terms of something coming from unconscious into the wakened outer space. But the movement is one of out-breath, of masculine, and it has a timing quality to it. 

In your particular case, you are looking at the overallness, which is the in-breath. And you’re looking at the components of spaciousness, and that it has to have an inclusiveness, an embracing inclusiveness. Essentially, what I keep seeing is happening, is that any kind of qualified identification on the breath, leaves one in this yo-yo journeying effect of trying to put the in-breath and the out-breath, and all of that together, and trying to get it to a point where there’s a total letting go, and you go into the stillness. 

Now, the thing that one has to denote is the stillness was presented in one fell swoop inside of us. As if one could take that in, and on, in one fell swoop. That is possible. But then it’s recognized that we are in the physical and that we work with the breath, and that everything around us is the breath. And so we can’t really, for some reason, take and do the 99.999 times percent inside of ourselves, which is: be the overallness and all-inclusiveness of everything that is, which is then just in the stillness and lets go of all this stuff: pretty darn difficult. 

And so because it’s like that now we are seeing aspects, and learning tidbits, about the direness of the strait that one is in, when one is caught in the breath – in some aspect or another. 

In my particular case, it’s almost like a curiosity, or whatever, or trying to make timing work. In your particular case, it’s the trying to make the overallness more all-inclusive. And the idea of trying to make the timing work on my part involves the opening up of something then that’s in a spaciousness; when this thing opens its eyes, and whatnot, that it’s dealing with the spatial orientation of being awake in the reflectiveness, and the outer, of life.

In your particular case the idea of getting something to accept the greater overallness, or sense that you know is important, because if it doesn’t there is something that pangs or doesn’t quite fit is an aspect, again, of trying to make a pent-up timing come through as a recognition, which, then, is to correspond to a greater overallness. 

So what we’re doing is that we are dreaming in various ways about what it’s like to be this way, or that way, on the breath. My meditation dream provided another set of information, in terms of how one can invoke something with such an intensity that it impacts the molecular nature of your being, which causes then a feedback loop inside of yourself that is played out in the outer. And then just how that is, which is like a report, how that is in terms of being in and under a spell that has to run its course.

Whenever something is at the epitome of an extreme it is driving itself crazy. And it is delving into something that causes its molecular nature to be whiplashed in some regard or another. The living of that, and the going through that, should lead to a qualification of how it is that you’re slamming your molecular structure, and that that, then, haunts you.

The meditation dream was about what this does to you when you are like that. Or, because it’s my dream, it factors me in, in terms of what it’s like for me to be someone that malarkey’s with that a little bit, teases with that, and what that does in terms of dumbing something down in terms of yourself. That was a very interesting report.

960x0As soon as something fulfills its peak physical formation, it begins its journey home – back to what created it. This doesn’t mean that being rejoined with the Creator is the next stop, but it means that it begins its path to transition – its journey to transformation. As humans, we are capable of many transformations within one lifetime, which can affect where we go, and what we might do, in the next stage of our adventure. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in my meditation dream, the general statement about it is that everything there is, that lives and can be seen, is founded in the essence of stillness. And man has access to this overallness of everything, but has to let go of the choices he has made that are an identification that is outside of the stillness. 

Everything that appears to exist lies outside of the stillness. That which appears to exist is an illusory projection held together by our need to identify. All projections are associated with the breath. In other words, they involve the breath. Maybe you could say associated, or founded, have an aspect of the breath. It’s almost the breath breathes everything into being – everything is created out of that.

So this is something I have been delving into more and more, in other words, looking at the quality of how the breath affects, or is the precursor to, is the means upon which, everything in manifestation… it’s like the vehicle to everything. 

So last night, I notice that after a thought had come into a sight, in other words, first the thought doesn’t have anything about it that’s meaningful at all, then it takes on a sight. And then the sight is activated more because of more things that are happening, in terms of the motion for manifesting it, so it’s put into a flow. And, at some point, that flow then becomes actualized, like a movie, or projection, or even concretized in terms of there being a denseness of manifestation. 

When it gets like that, to recognize the need to come out of the trance can start a type of countdown; I was shocked to see a countdown. In other words, when you’re traveling towards God on the in-breath, it’s as if a part of you is also letting go of the identification that had been in the other direction when you were coming in with just the out-breath. And so it’s like a countdown; it doesn’t mean you’re getting there. But it’s like a sense that there is something more – so it’s like a countdown. 

By that I mean that when the in-breath is oriented to be a traveling to God, and a letting go of the pent-up moods, mannerisms, and atmosphere associated with the illusory projections of manifestation is starting to subside, or there is the recognition to abide in some stillness somewhere. It’s like you’re in a kind of a countdown towards that. 

For each person it is different, but what needs to be dropped, or let go of, that is still caught in an over-expansiveness of moods, and things like that, values and such, on the in-breath is numbered before it goes completely away. The countdown, as a way of saying it, or image, as if there is a gap, or as if there is still something to be transcended. It’s not a gap; something to be transcended. 

And yet it is kind of a transcending because that’s when you come to recognize that there’s the spaciousness of the in-breath coming out of a pent-up dense manifestation that is caught in a time orientation. And that the timelessness of the out-breath has to be brought into the spaciousness so that you’d have a result of emptiness, of stillness, and be in the face of the essence of the universe

I experienced this, in the meditation dream, upon letting go of the projections that affect my greater beingness, and just the mere letting go causes the stillness; there is the stillness, then, if you can truly let go. 

So to let go of a projection invokes knowing that everything that I see, feel, and get into as a flow is deviation from the stillness. To have a reflective discussion about consciousness, taking the deviation, per se, traveling, as it does, or as it is trying to do, back to God, in other words, looking at it as at least having gotten to kind of an in-breath quality, a journey that can’t be made unless the timelessness of the outbreath goes through inner states of expansiveness, or spacious. And that the movement of that, traveling into the spaciousness, knowing that it needs to catch up with timelessness, is like a countdown. 

What I learned last night is to let go of a pent-up amnesic unconsciousness is to let go of projective spells in my beingness. To let go is to break free of time and space as a boundary, and be in a timelessness and spaciousness that knows no time or space. I mean, it’s everything then. 

Not enough can be said about the pristineness of stillness. For example, what we call the spirit of guidance is yet a self-limiting bifurcation from therein – because there’s no substance to that. There’s still a doingness, or an idea that there’s a doingness going on. There isn’t anything going on.
