Heart-2What does it mean to listen to the heart? On a spiritual journey we come to understand that our brain alone cannot get us where we need to go. And that’s an issue, because almost everything in daily life is governed by our use of our brain. But we are a wholeness, not a single organ, and our instincts and intuitions, and our heart, are part of how we need to “feel” our way forward. This has to do with a trust in the unseen, but also the belief that our systems, as a whole, know what is best for us – in terms of doing what we have been designed to do. The more we can listen, and respond, to the intelligence of our wholeness, the more we will live in the flow of energetics.

John: Now what I dealt with, in terms of my meditation dream, was a little bodacious to try to write it up because you can’t really do justice to the subject matter trying to write it up in a couple, three pages.

So I start off with manifestation, in which, as a being, I’m in a slower and more dense condition, and that condition is based upon things having gotten condensed upon what is called the plane of sound. In other words, sound was used, like it’s described in the Bible, out of the word… beginning was the word, and now the word things were created. And it says something similar in terms of how sound was used to create things, out of the Koran. And so we live in something that’s considered dense, but it’s dense because it is sound compressed, which means that light is something way something else, then there’s the sound, and in it, it is compressed. And within the sound might be the higher self, instead of just the lower self, but that’s another story.

So, outwardly, I experience in everything in manifestation a form of sound. Sound is a compressed substance. It’s compressed into a substance that I am able to physically hear, see, touch, whatever with my physical mind and senses – and the mind follows the senses. So manifestation, when experienced as sound, is reflective. It’s reflective to something that is the higher self, that’s more than that, that’s the deep inner, that’s the other side.

In this loci you live out everything that is on the plane of light. You live it out, though, in a condensed format called sound. So hearing and seeing predominates in this outer reflective, but it’s a hearing and seeing with senses that are sound-oriented. They are disassociated, based upon the way the mind senses are, from the true and higher-self light.

And then there is the universe of everything. Within the planes of light there is manifestation, of course, but there’s the planes of light, or the higher self, that embodies this – even though we are stuck in the plane of manifestation, and are sorting out accordingly, and are caught with a physical dense nature that’s in accordance with how manifestation is, or the plane of sound is, and we just call it a lower-self nature. Or I would call it the sound loci octave, and the world’s soul of a manifestation in a sound-oriented octave is, in and of itself, in kind of a dire outer condition state, kind of on a life support, because over time it has gotten to the point where it has lost track, or does not know how to reach, the inner light that’s necessary to shift the lower self on a mind sense orientation to the planes of light.

So in my meditation dream I saw the collective consciousness state as being where sound, and the momentum of condensed sound, is a spellbinding condition maintained by a mind trapped in the five senses. In other words, condensed sound makes the senses.

To access the higher self, such a mind must let go of the reflective five-sense orientation, because what has happened is that the vibration has come down in a way that is traveling farther and farther away from the light, and, in doing so, it spins more and more in terms of trying to figure out something when it has lost the natural aspect that enables it to know.

And so we are kind of left with a few tools to try to play with, you know, in terms of trying to awaken the higher self. Prayer is one, meditation is another, in that they point to something more, but we have such a feeble connection to that because we exist in the manifestation loci in which our senses point out, 99.99% of the time, a certain way of having to function, and if we don’t function that way your body will suffer because it has a physical orientation to this kind of dumbed-down, lower-self nature. So, to begin with, that something more that is more is just deemed to be anotherness that we can’t hold onto, or even see.

Now a means has been devised to try to help bridge the gap more than just through prayer and meditation, and, for the Naqshbandis and the Chistis, they use the dhikr, that is energized, or magnetized, to the breath so that the human being is able to find a way of being energized that is outside of the flickerings of the mind senses.

Or, I call it, the Jinn out-breath because we all are so much bigger than what we realize, and we come down through, and have in our nature have fallen with thought processes that are aspected to the Jinn out-breath, and then we’re taking that and finding that we are playing with thought-upon-thought, as an orientation on the plane of sound, as opposed to light-upon-light. And so we need the light-upon-light to get back to God.

The out-breath that comes down into a reflective denseness finds this lower self, as a plane that it has created with the thought-upon-thought, as a sense orientation which is self-limiting and, as a consequence, because so much of who we really are has been estranged, we go into distress. The distress is accentuated when the heart vies for a greater inner angelic plane experience of light, but can’t find it.

Consequently, if the heart, in our orientation in the manifestation, can’t find it, neither can the so-called world’s soul of manifestation get out of its strange predicaments being on a kind of breaking down because it sits just reflectively, instead of inflectively, to where a change can happen on the plane of light.

And the plane of light is considered a plane of the angelic, so on the in-breath you could even say that, at the higher part of the in-breath, is the angelic, just like you could say on the higher part of the out-breath you go through the thoughts that come up that keep pulling you down, down, down that goes through the Jinn quality.

So the mind senses of the Jinn out-breath must stop and reach a magnetism, or access, because as they’re coming down they lose the magnetism, and the speeded up, and the light and whatnot, from which they come. And when you become dull, and dumb, and asleep enough, you have no idea of what you left behind, and thus the consequence of what has happened is that the light has become hidden in matter and needs to be freed, and that quality of something hidden in matter is considered feminine.

Just like the in-breath is considered feminine, the out-breath is considered masculine. When we learn the magnetism, how to magnetize back, go back to a greater speed, more light, we do that by charging the breath, instead of just taking the breath and letting it be slapped around unconsciously as we fumble about in the plane of manifestation. We have to bootstrap ourselves by developing something that takes us outside of the constant thought process by magnetizing something of the breath, and that magnification takes us back into the plane, and points us back to the plane, of light.

A traveling that finds a home, at the in-breath/out-breath interval, then becomes the cycle of creation, although first you have the traveling away from God as the out-breath, the traveling towards God as the in-breath, the traveling in God when you get to the point where you’re hitting the stillness.

So such a journey takes in all of the levels of our beingness, and frees us to follow the heart that, in the inner, is accentuated more and more by a magnetism in-breath to angelic light freed from the out-breath momentum of thoughts. I mean you go beyond just the angelic, too, because the angelic still is like a light-upon-light in reverence to something, but then there’s the stillness that’s above that. Or, as is commonly said, the place on the breath where the in-breath turns to the out-breath. To be able to go back and forth through the various planes of light and sound is all there is.

Sensation of meditation dream: The sensation is that there is an emptiness in which everything is everything, and it is as it is, and there is no need for more or for less. The heart embraces all there is as being all there is, a soothingly, still peace and rest. Thoughts do not exist. And then I suppose you could say, you know, before the in-breath turns to the out-breath, who knows what that’s like, but along the way there’s a light-upon-light.

Such an exercise is an attempt to use the laws of the heart for guidance.

2e2sWe can say that the universe is in process. Energies of all sorts are moving through different states of matter and purity as the universe unfolds toward its fulfillment. The human plays a role in this by also processing energies, and can do that process consciously. The closer we are aligned to universal purpose, the closer our processes mimic creation’s. And that is when we can become one with It. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I just remember a little bit of the dream later in the morning and, in that dream, it seems to me like this area of the condo, where you and I live, is kind of expanded, and there’s other people here, and I’m doing something.

It’s like there’s some work you’re doing, and I’m trying to do something where I bring something back and forth to you – but you don’t quite feel like it’s pulling together yet. And I remember going out into the living room, and there were three or four beds in the living room, and when I glance down towards the door I notice that my niece’s husband had gotten up and was walking through there. But then I came back over here, to try to stay focused on whatever it was we were doing, and I think that was when I woke up.

I just don’t recall some of the details of what it was we were doing. There was you and I and other people, and so I had a sense of going back and forth trying to pull something together.

John: That seems to have been the general energy of the dreaming last night, in that the back and forth that you were doing was kind of an in and an out. And although it doesn’t seem like a big thing, because it’s so simple, what we have been doing has been mostly contending with the out, which means the bringing of a consciousness through – which is the same thing as saying that we are able to recognize, in the reflective outer, something more.

But what has changed and what is subtly different, in terms of the getting up and the moving about, and the recognizing of other people sleeping in the place, or whatever all that is, is that you’re now contending with the in.

What is the in, and what is the out? Well, the out is where consciousness wakes up to understand something through the greater teacher, the reflective. The in is the process in which the essence of one’s being rises up and lives that essence quality. And when that essence quality is lived, that essence quality creates the reflections, generates the reflections.

So, in the out, you’re responding to the reflections, from the standpoint that you see the essence of the divine from the greater outer, from the reflections themselves, almost as a reciprocal reverberation. In the in, the living of that essence, the connecting to that essence, causes a generation. You, then, become the creator, and you generate those reflections.

So the dilemma, of course, is even though this was just a simple little thing, it’s very, very confusing because what you have is the need to catch up with the understanding of the whole out-breath, and the whole in-breath, because the out-breath, or the heightened awareness of the divine in the reflections, is accentuated at the interval. It’s the longing. It’s accentuated at the interval where the out-breath turns to the in-breath.

At the other interval, where you are living something – which is often called the going home of the breath back to its source – the living of something is where the reflections get generated. It’s where they’re manufactured. That’s where they’re created. And that, of course, is accentuated in the interval where the in-breath turns to the out-breath. That’s the state of bliss, and bliss incorporates the love of the essence for its creation and all of that.

So what makes the awkwardness in your dream is the vibration of the in-breath, and the vibration of the out-breath. It’s a lot to reconcile when all of a sudden the two polarities, the North Pole and the South Pole of one’s beingness, kind of come through in this fell swoop manner. You’re used to just the South Pole of yourself, so to speak South Pole, being the awakening quality that one comes to grips with revelationally, in the reflective, and seen through the reflective. That’s pretty wild.

ae10As may often happen in life, we find we have to leave something that we have attachments to: a person, a school, a job, a home, a town, or a city. The feeling can be bittersweet – and there are many and varied reasons for this, individual to each of us and the specifics of the situation. But our spiritual journey wants us to understand that our entire life is a visit to a special place, where we are meant to learn and grow – according to our design and possibility – all in preparation for our next adventure. Our spiritual quest helps keep us from becoming anchored here by planetary attachments because we open ourselves to our universal potential. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: In this dream, everything has come together into one place. In other words, everything is visiting. I mean, I’ve got the spiritual elders, and my relatives that go back generation upon generation upon generation. We’ve all got together. We’re meeting at this one place. In fact we’ve already had our meeting, and now it’s time for them to take the elevator right back, or the in-breath back.

Well, I’m the elevator operator. And so they’re all lined up, and I still carry a certain density in my nature, and this is an elevator that’s designed to carry lightness. And so I figure, oh, everybody’s got to have a little density; there’s got to be a little weight. But the weight is me.

And so I figure, I can do this. There’s only three people. You know, a whole bunch were there, but only three got on the elevator on this first trip – and I have to do this. Can I do this? Well, this is pretty hard because how do I relate? What do I say? What can I do? Where am I at in relationship to that, because there’s nothing there? They are a lightness. They are breathing in; they are following the in-breath of the light.

And so, in that elevator, everything is taken in as a wholeness, and I’m sitting there struggling because I, as the elevator operator, what can I say to them? How can I be? You know, I’m still caught in my complexities. In order to do this I have to, somehow or another, breathe this light, this in-breath, that is there, and then yet I have to come down then with this same kind of light bring that down, you know, to pick up more in the in-breath that are going back.

This is how you take in everything. This is a dream that takes in everything. Now I once saw how the out-breath works. This is the first time I saw how the in-breath works.

So the meaning is… you know, to jump into the meaning, the meaning is the setting I am part of is an overallness that is not in a this, or that, condition, having let go of, and set aside, the effects of the reflective, and therefore exist in a singular stillness.

That’s a statement of what it is; describing it as breath is another thing. The elevator is the vehicle that knows the difference, but the elevator is like the breath. It is a vehicle that can go up and down as the breath, with the breath.

In this instance, it is going up. What is going home on this elevator had breathed back in the light that was in the out-breath they brought into this place to visit. To be in such lightness of being I can have no separate action in my nature. In other words, that’s me trying to be in the elevator with them. I must breathe in the light to be amidst those other side beings. And, to the degree I do not, the density of my diverse mind, still mired in the diversity of the outer, will weigh me down and I will not let go to be in the light of the heart. And this elevator is designed to take souls who are weightless, in terms of the outer, back home.
