Posts Tagged ‘the masculine holds the details and specifics – but not the overall’

Today, John’s dreams highlight the energetic difference between connecting to what we see around us, or reaching a deeper level and connecting to the energy behind what we see around us. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Well, that [Jeane’s dream, see Part of the Equation] was a good way of doing it, and it causes me to have to tell my dream last night, that I had when I went to bed, first, before telling the meditation dream, because it has a similar kind of chemistry about it.

It does it slightly differently but, because I’m the masculine, I tend to often times not see what it is that is right in front of me, that should be obvious for me to see.

The feminine nature just finds itself in just some sort of state that exists in the outer, and whether it has an inner connection or not to begin with, the feminine just doesn’t make that distinction because its concern doesn’t tend to function that way and, as a result, the way its attention does function it has to do more with how it feels the overallness of the space, or not, and the masculine’s attention functions in terms of the specifics, the detail, the way something comes down, or the way something is impacted, or affected, as a kind of almost a discriminatory way of being, but what you’re discriminating is hopefully conceivably the dropping away of the slower limitations of the outer, to adhere to the only thing that is real which is the inner coming into outer flow.

This is the role, the responsibility, of the masculine, which is often times said that it of having the passage rite of bringing in the clarity. This in a way is almost so simple that you have to keep saying it over and over again because it’s so easy to miss it. And the reason why it’s so easy to miss it is because we live in an outer world, and so the perceptions are based upon the senses and when the perceptions are based upon the senses, and maybe that occurs say 99% of the time, and the senses then correlate to how we think, the inclination then is to make reflective decisions based upon how the outer is unfolding, instead of from the faster energy that is tweaking all of it.

So, to show how one gets spoiled or dumbs down or loses clarity or how all of that kind of tweaks back and forth, I have three aspects. You had three aspects. I mean your third aspect was bringing in the Led Zeppelin. Your middle aspect was recognizing how to not have to be in a hillbilly mode, which has got to feel absolutely horrible because you don’t have any energy there, and everything is just getting by day by day. At least the second part had more interest to it, but it too would get nauseating at some point based upon the fact that it did and you recognized that something more from an inner level was needed, thus came the Led Zeppelin music.

In my dream I start off with, first of all, kind of being in a recognition of the inner into outer flow, I mean just kind of naturally there. I don’t have to be told. I mean maybe if everything is left in its perfect state of coordinated ordination, it’s going to work like that. And so, the first part of the dream is reflecting the fact that I’m settling for an old energetic habit.

In other words, that becomes the message, and it becomes the message because the way I notice it is as follows: I start off with the dream making a choice that on the outer level also makes sense.

In other words, I know what the inner level is saying, but it just so happens that the outer level is also kind of in a kind of cohesion. It’s still somewhat quickened, or alivened, or affected on a one-to-one direct correspondence to the inner flow. So you could actually, to begin with, spoil yourself by actually settling for making a decision in relationship to what you see as outer quickened events that are happening around you. And it will work out if you do that.

And when it works out like that you tend to get spoiled and you tend to think that that’s okay as well. It’s just like a person who takes and goes on a gambling machine and wins the jackpot and even though they intellectually know that the odds are designed to beat them in the end, they somehow or another go into an active imagination inside themselves that thinks they are above and beyond that scenario, and that they have some sort of rights based upon how something worked out in the outer.

But the whole design of things, that has been designed from the inner, that was designed as an outer mannerism, they lose that recognition and then you beat up on yourself and you get delirious.

Well, to begin with, this is something like that. I’ve gotten spoiled because it just so happened that you could make this decision based upon an inner into outer, which requires a little more consciousness and a little more attentiveness, and you could have been a little bit stupid and made it based upon the outer consequence of what was unfolding – and it would have been just fine. It would have just happened to work out just fine.

Well, when you do that you dull yourself down. You’re dropping yourself to the lowest common denominator, so the next thing you know that when you see the next sequence of images, you dulled yourself so you don’t necessarily know which is the inner and which is the outer.

So everything, the distinction, everything seems very, very hard to decide, very, very hard to know which is the inner and which is the outer, because you’ve dulled yourself.  You no longer have a ready access to the subtler inner inflections, and you have lost touch of the overall connectivity. Now you’re relying more heavily upon the outer senses, and so you put yourself into kind of a…

Without a succinct clarity or subtler adherence to the inner coming into outer awareness, you’re hit and miss, you’re all over the place, you fall back into the fog and the delirium, in other words, which is easy to do because, as I indicated, your surroundings support that because it is 99% awareness through the senses of the outer that you’re in, so it’s hard for you to hold a consciousness that adheres to a general overall vibration, which is what is alive that comes through, and that is what we are.

We’re created in the image of that inner into outer vibration, and that we need to adhere to that. It can be described in various ways as a raging wind, or light, or however you want to say it, but it is where the attention needs to be placed, because the outer is nothing more than a reflection of that in a slower way.

And because it’s in a slower way it sometimes can be in the past, and this other vibration, this raging wind or light or whatever you want to call it or a fire or inferno or whatever you want to call it, of an innerness, can be in the moment. And because it’s so much faster the outer consequences can be left behind. Thus if you’re reflecting and making decisions based upon the outer consequences, you can get it wrong because you’re not where the attention and the focus is supposed to be, which is this… well, as I describe, which is the secret substance.

In this phase where I have lost the clarity and need to be able to discriminate to what is real, I place myself into scenarios in which I suffer, because I’m making decisions based upon the outer. I suffer because I’m not complying with the inner into outer overall knowingness; in other words settling for outer nuances.

In the third phase of dreaming, I have reawakened to how I need to be. There isn’t much to report because when I recognize and adhere to the inner into outer flow, everything works out as it is meant to do. In other words, what works out is what is intended, and I come to just readily embrace and accept that because the other is not the real way of going – that’s the deviations.

The reason that everything works out as it needs to be is because I am following a conscious inner knowingness that is connected to the overall energetic that predominates in all of creation, instead of the denser outer reflections that often times misrepresent what is really going on.

The reason the outer sense perceptions get it wrong on many occasions is because that which is the inner, Will of God, is like a light, and the outer reflections are often left behind are more like a delayed effect that correlates more to that which is in the past, thus being too slow.

Your dream correlated to this. Do you see how it was, one, two, and three? You said more simply though. I had a big long deal there. You didn’t have much going on, but every sentence there changed the energetic and I was afraid that if you cued the third in, I might not have the ability to take all three of those and distinguish them as they needed to be distinguished because they were a process.

In my meditation dream, I am seeing myself able to maintain, in other words whatever the maintaining means in terms of what is going on around me, even though it isn’t easy because the situation where I am not moving, or doing anything to… it’s not easy because I am in a situation in which I am not moving, there is no motion, kind of like your hillbilly scene, and not doing anything to affect the dull state that I’m in.

I guess what I’m saying I’m doing is, I’m holding onto a condition that is fixated, and there’s a fine line between being fixated, in terms of caught up in the outer, and being caught and fixated upon something that lets go of the outer and just adheres to the inner, that’s transcendent.

In this particular image I’m doing the flip side, I am fixated upon the inner, and I can tell I’m close to waking up, in other words where I’m going to have to come out of the inner back into the outer. I’m doing my best to maintain my support for the prevailing condition. The prevailing condition is I am in a place where the inner is quickened, and when I awaken, back into the outer, how much of that am I going to be able to sustain and maintain – as the deeper part inside myself?
When I do awaken, open my eyes, I realize that I am letting go of a focus I had been in deep within as I am coming back into creation. And in doing that is when I realize where I am at and why. By that I mean I realize I’m in creation, which is in an outer, and for a split second there’s the inflection of what there is as a deeper purpose in the outer, but that’s such a fleeting inflection that it quickly evaporates because I’m back in the outer and whatever the burdens and the mannerisms and the traits that are going on in the outer, that dominate over me, is all picked up.

So what I am saying is that, as I’m maintaining the inner state, when I’m in my deep sleep, and therefore situated in its energetic, intertwined focus, on an outer level there is an imagery, more or less a designed condition to that occurrence, but it’s reflective and it can be very slowed down.

What happens as soon as I break the inner link, I come back into my physical senses. In coming back I automatically lose the focus to a deeply entrenched inner awareness. What I’m able to barely remember is what I write up each evening as my meditation dream. I am always amazed by what comes up each time.

In other words, reflect upon, or still carry as some sort of wavering essence, from deep within. And to catch up with it, it has this dreamlike quality so that I can sort it out from the symbolic of the dream. I’m amazed, over and over again, that what is really going on is this inner energetic flow from deep within.

This inner energetic flow is what shapes creation. The effect from this innerness appears to remain unconscious when I fail to notice the deeply symbolic dream images night after night. In other words, if you just fall asleep and nothing is going on then you are just affected by the affairs of the outer and this other is so deep within that you are amnesiac to it.

As a consequence, of essentially addressing this mannerism, a mannerism between distinction between the inner and the outer, I am now realizing that what I am able to notice, which comes across as a dream, is the result of a secret inner substance and its inner message.

I mean, what else is it? It’s something that’s going on from somewhere really, really, really deeply inside, kind of like a teacher would call it that we’re created in the image of a thought of God, so to speak, and that then has a consequence of an action and out of that arises all of this innerness that is quickened.

And then you find yourself in the outer trying to figure out how all of that works out in the malaise where it is dumbed down and hidden.

The subject matter of my correlation to this inner aliveness, or awareness, is unlimited because what I am able to perceive more and more is this deeper and deeper awakening inner consciousness.

In other words, I perceive more from the epicenter to all that there is, and that all that there is takes in this entire plane of manifestation. When I’m in manifestation, relating to my senses with the mind then correlating itself to those senses, I tend to look at things in such a microcosmic way that it’s very easy for me just to not catch this big picture, or the perception at the epicenter.

What I know by the inner vibration and its corresponding symbolic images stems from… well, you could call it a thought of God, or you can call it the secret essence behind all of manifestation. Without this inner secret substance that is at the core to everything, there would be a nothingness.

Perceiving this causes me to notice that the energetic vibration which we perceive to be the inner aliveness originates from within our inner being and is feeding corresponding outer images on the plane of manifestation.

It’s like feeding them, or you might say that the slower denser part of our self is throwing off that kind of remainder effect, in a slower way instead of the faster way, in which it’s all there in the moment at the time, as is this raging wind or something. If this inner energetic vibration were to ceased to exist, there would be no awareness, and without a sense of awareness there would be no creation.

Jeane: Next I have a dream that has to do with moving from one place to another, and the only part I remember is that I wanted to meet you somewhere. I’m going through some hallways that almost look like they’re in a castle, and there are some people coming out.

Maybe some of them are going where we’re going. It seems like you’ve already gone ahead. One English man comes out and asks me about getting some aid to get where he’s going; some money so he can stay in the country longer.

I look at him and make the comment that he should talk to you, not me. But I realize that people are coming to me because word has gotten out that you sometimes help people. I’m wondering how to handle that.

He’s about college age or a little older. I’m pondering it because it might be good to have him along, but I also feel that he’s someone who gets by on his charm rather than working hard. I’m not sure that you’d want to help him unless he put in more effort.

John: This a dream in which you’re looking at the masculine and feminine aspects of understanding. As the feminine perspective, you’re able to have a certain sense of understanding and clarity about how something needs to be, or should be, i.e., is it appropriate to give support to the masculine in this scenario?

So you have a feeling sense of the situation, but that doesn’t mean that the idea is grounded, i.e., does the masculine deserve your support in what it’s trying to do? So you’re weighing whether this specific aspect is something that’s meant to be incorporated in the whole.

The idea presented by the masculine can sound good, it can make a lot of sense, but it still may be on a level that’s not grounded – it doesn’t quite integrate into the schematic of the whole. The feminine may not be making her assessment by knowing the details of the situation – she may not know the As, Bs, and Cs of it – but the feminine does know, and can tell, whether something has the right sense or feel about it in terms of how it’s unfolding.

So that feminine aspect, if acknowledged and made conscious, can often reveal whether it considers what’s transpiring to be right or not. You can often see this in a husband and wife relationship. A husband can seem to make a lot of sense, but then if you look at the wife you can notice how she holds it together.

If she doesn’t have a wellness, and isn’t holding it together very well, everything gets kind of peculiarized in her nature, and she’ll be off in some way. Then you realize that the whole situation between them is off on a tangent, it’s out of balance. The husband may sound realistic and have a whole quality and nature of confidence about him – and you often see this in people who develop a certain natural rapport with things – but that doesn’t mean that what he’s doing is right, or fits.

Many couples have found a niche for themselves that kind of works, in an agreement way. But then you look at the wife and the wife may seem all worn out. That’s because in her role of having to clarify all of this, and to make it all make sense, she’s taking on something that deep down she knows has something amiss about it. And she may never be able to get over the degree to which she’s slightly unsettled. As a consequence, she can break down: reactively, emotionally, physically, all kinds of ways that a person can break down.

So this dream is actually a furtherance of the first dream (see Crossing Over), where the masculine provided a “bridge” that was inadequate for the space that needed to be crossed. This inadequate bridge indicates that you have a certain degree of personal identification, in terms of something about the outer, physical condition of things, and it’s interfering with your ability to take on the overallness (cross the bridge), of which you know you can be a part.

There’s the sense that because you’ve gone off onto it, i.e., you’ve taken on this role, it means you’re supposed to be able to take the whole thing on, contain it, and make everything fit together.

And you have made the journey to do just that; this dream indicates that this is the role you’ve taken on or carry. But you don’t necessarily carry the detail of things (masculine), so if someone looks to you to know if what’s presented is right or not (is the bridge sufficient, or should I help this student?), your assessment can only determine whether or not this “something” is working in a complete way or not.

One can ask the masculine, in which it would become a process of reviewing the details. Your dreams portray a general sense, and that general sense is the answer without the detail. The masculine side of things can have the detail, and the detail can all sound right, but it doesn’t have the view of whether it fits within the overall schematic.

The question is, is a thing to be blessed, or ushered in, or accepted by you in terms of the overall? So you’re learning to recognize what fits and what doesn’t.

Jeane: In my dream last night, I was with a man and we were studying different rooms, i.e., how they opened up, and how you could travel across them.

The rooms seemed to be lined up in a circle. As we entered to cross the rooms, they all seemed to unfold differently. One room in particular seemed to have a large archway that went across it, which created a certain height.

After we looked at all the rooms, we had a discussion about which one was the fastest to get across. We concluded that it was the room with the arch because the height allowed us to go through faster.  

I also feel like I had a dream in there – I don’t know if it was the same place, or in one of the rooms, or afterward – but I know there was a train and a little animal but I couldn’t pull out that dream.  

Then I woke up with the refrain from the song “Lady Madonna” running through my head: “Lady Madonna, children at her feet. Wonder how…” I seemed to know the rest of the refrain in my sleep, but I just was repeating it or listening to it over and over.

John: What you’re describing is the ability to recognize where something has more possibility, based on the way it feels and in terms of its shape. You’re taking note of how everything around you resonates, which for the feminine is registered as an overall sense without specific details. For the masculine, that same resonance would be depicted through something specific (less overall).

For the feminine it’s just a quality that feels good. It’s just a quality that feels right. It’s a quality that carries with it a knowingness and an awareness. In other words, when you see the room with the high arch you know that that’s the more revealing direction to go in. You’re not quite seeing energy lines, but the arch represents something like that, based on recognizing how something in the overall communicates, or comes across, just by the way that it’s shaped or formed or feels.

In the final aspect of your dreaming you take it to the ultimate where you use the word “Madonna,” which could be said to represent the principle of the overallness. The Madonna has a vibration that reaches out over everything in her environment. When you reach out to everything in your environment, and you have a sense and a pulse and a feel of it as part of your nature, everything is like “children at your feet.”

Everything is there, and for something to be at your feet it means they’re part of you. They may not have the stature of overallness that you have to carry and embody (i.e., they are relatively children), but you find them within your heart so to speak, so they are at your feet. I was trying to remember how the rest of that line went, too.

It’s one of those psychedelic songs that indicates that whatever is being described in specific detail, also has something to do with you – it relates to you in a universal way. And you know that, only you have an even bigger perspective in the overall, by which you’re actually able to take in the whole on behalf of all the rest.
