human.consciousnessWhen we reach a goal, the next question is always: what’s next? Where do we take our achievement? On a spiritual path it’s different. We may reach higher and higher levels, or connections, enabling us to see and experience the world differently, but we absolutely don’t want to reach the end. In fact, it is our development and connection to the purpose of life that allows us to continue. We don’t want the real journey that is possible for us to end until the universe has reached its goals. That gives us a long time to experience and process.

John: And then, in my sleep dream, I go back into the meditation, to go to another end with it, the actual meditation dream itself sat with something in suspense opening it, coming into fruition, a process, a flow, awakening, an aliveness, quickening.

In my sleep dream I go back into the meditation and dream and, in doing so, I walk up a number of floors by climbing steps until I reach the top of a building. I need to go back because what I had accessed there I felt was important for others. What I was able to show people is a source where the water rises up from the depths, comes up on the roof like this, and is there for use by those who seek it.

I don’t seek it. In other words, I can show them this, but for some reason I realize that I don’t actually seek it. I only thought I did. But I know how to get here, and the properties that exist in this quality of water, this flow, that rises up, if you wanted to call it a flow that percolates up, I point out to those I bring here that the water has a heavy mineralization. In other words, they may not have anticipated that. In other words, that it’s high in silica, and that this is a source where there’s both water and salt combined. Then I wake up.

I pondered what there was that could be done with this water. In the dream I remember telling others that this isn’t water you drink. It is too salty. In waking up, I found myself thinking that the salt extractible from the source is important to the process in an unsuspected way. The effect of salt is it usable in minute quantities by the body. Every body has to have salt. It is also a product that can be used for medicinal purposes to cauterize and heal a wound, or to sterilize an area when there is a need to neutralize.

The dream was preceded by a dream in which I was pressured to bring others to a place where I knew water was at. In other words, something pressed me inside to do that. And, in doing this in this dream, the water that I find this time percolates up from the ground, and this time it’s like this huge expansive area, and those who seek this place think it will quench their thirst.

When I look at this area with all of them, or these other parts of myself, what I see in this dream is this huge expanse in which the water has come up slowly from the ground, and it’s only like an inch or two if that, and it is not benefitting the area as I would have been inclined to think, you know something that’s moist and wet, but here it’s got little standing water. It’s wet wherever you walk, but not deep. It just like percolated up. It doesn’t soak into the ground, because the ground is like too hard, and it covers this large area, not just a small spot when I first came here and thought I had found something meaningful and a value for others. What grows here is a kind of surface plant that is okay being saturated in water, that is for the most part stagnant and unfit to drink. Water needs to flow to be of value to the user.

Meaning: In these sleep dreams I am shown another side of consciousness in which getting to water that is still and stale is not the end all be all that I had been inclined to think, in other words, water itself as an aspect of consciousness, and my latent synaptic nature in terms of what it was able to perceive and look at, how it aspired to reach this particular point, that it’s not going to be what I imagined.

The symbolic meaning is that this area, that is aspired to in terms of me having to adhere in my meditation dream to some important aspect that’s meaningful in life, that which I recognize as meaningful in life, in terms of a vibrancy and a flow, is exciting, but the resultant of that, that other parts of myself think come to some sort of completion, that isn’t so, that’s not something I am capable of understanding as a process. The end isn’t, that is.

What flows is what is fresh and viable. The journey is that. The reaching of this place is anticlimactic because it doesn’t really do anything for anyone when it is in this state of modality, a modality that, deep down, if I apply what I am looking at, in the way that I am looking at it, this will be the result, and that result goes nowhere. A meaningful transformative change occurs when the chemistry of above/below, inner/outer, precipitates an awakening flow. That is what is real for me.

Getting somewhere is another illusion, a waste of time, because when I am there, and pause to take it in, I come to know that it doesn’t do for me what I expected. The journey and the anticipation of flowing in a meaningful way is what is of value energetically. The delusional aspect is to think there is an end all be all place that is reached in the end.

The lesson to be learned is that the upholding of the traits, which support a greater beingness, is something I can do when I am not able to do justice to an end result. For me, where I am at at this time, the journey is where a flow is at. The getting to somewhere is anticlimactic. This is a hard lesson to accept because the joke in manifestation is that there is a purpose in life that we need to reach or something, and when we reach it then we are able to be at rest. If that is so, I am seeing in the dream that it doesn’t work for me like that.

The unfoldment, and the journeying associated with the awakening process, was invigorating to the soul as an aspect of an overall oneness in which beginning and end are evoked as a journeying process, the breath going back, and towards, that interval where the inner turns into the outer.

23deb58Have you noticed that dreams almost always have some aspect of travel in them? It can be in a vehicle, or on foot, with others or alone, but we always seem to be going somewhere, or trying to get somewhere. And that should tell us something about our unconscious processes that understand that we are on a journey all the days of our lives, and our dream images offer a road map, and guidance, and rest stops, and helpful hints for this journey all along the way. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: In my first dream it’s like I’ve gone back to New York and, in outer reality in New York, there’s a couple that had personal growth seminars, I used to help organize, that I had a falling out with.

And, in the dream, I’ve gone back to visit them, and I even go in and they’re beginning to organize seminars again, and I just kind of sit with them, and watch, or visit a little, and then I leave. And you and I are together, and we come out west, and first we’re traveling around west, maybe we’ve stopped a bit in California.

And then the woman shows up. She was under the impression that we were going to go to San Diego and organize for them again, or I was. And I explained, no, you know, we’re not getting re-involved or any of that, and we’re actually going to the Northwest, we have just been visiting. But she leaves, and I see that after she leaves that what she had done is she had left on the table some envelopes, and one was from her husband, and the other was from her, and it was the income they had received for the seminar they had just run in New York.

John: The dream is very cryptic in that you use New York as an example of taking a kind of step back, but it’s not the kind of step back that goes into such a denseness that you aren’t able to notice, or to watch, or to see in some capacity what is going on.

So the idea of going back to New York to take in something that is a seminar, in relationship to something in the past, is not a whole lot different than having to be in manifestation in which there are the ideas of life, of mankind, that are being perpetrated upon the whole.

You realize that things have to be put into a motion where there can be an unfoldment, instead of a manipulation based upon the ideals of something that had come up by the way and mannerisms of the powers that be, or of something that is established, or appears to be established as having entered into manifestation in this regard – by traveling to the west. And in such a journey you’re moving towards the completion of a process, and you’re utilizing some of the principles… In other words, you’re just not bambling about in life, you’re utilizing some of the principles of an aspect of an inner beingness because you’re also, in going to the west, you’re going the north, as well.

And the north is the spiritual center. It’s not going to the southwest, which is a delving into the crux of things. It’s nice to be able to go to the southwest where you delve into the crux of things, but that’s not something everybody dare try do. Sometimes you have to take and go a little bit towards just trying to awaken something, as well as journey along, and not necessarily have to do something which the southwest would have be implying.

So what your dream is doing is it’s giving you information in terms of what is going on in relationship to what can seem rather bewildering – in terms of a day-to-day, up and down – and it’s giving you this information almost from an overall kind of perspective of things.

The difference between this dream is again it has an overallness because I’m looking at the idiosyncrasies unfolding. That perspective, as I come to see it, is almost as if something is looking down, or coming through, as a counterbalancing awakening, when in your case it’s just an orientation, it’s just an atmosphere change, going from something that is projected in the east of one’s past.

Now what’s interesting, too, is your approach. This approach seems to know how to handle things with greater dexterity than the approach of how I’m looking at it, which seems to incur more of a direct impact in terms of how things are, and thus hits levels of pain. In your particular case, in an overallness you kind of have an overall sense of what isn’t right, and move, and adjust, accordingly – without having the specifics of the impact to have to contend with.
