Holding the Need

tatal-cerescIt can often seem as if we are all alone floating in the darkness of space. How could any God or gods possibly be everywhere it, or they, has to be? Well, this is where the idea of “need” comes in. You might even say that the “next thing” is always based on some sort of need from the previous moment. But whose need are we speaking of? Perhaps it is the need of things to fulfill their design potential that makes the universe unfold. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So, last night, as I was dreaming I woke up and for some reason I was really annoyed because you weren’t here and I could hear you lumbering around, but you still took a long time to come.

And then all of that got incorporated into the dream, you know. It felt like I would go away and I would come back, and I was approaching you either as the god or the goddess, either me in that form or you in one of those forms.

And then it would be like, I was still annoyed at something, and then I was explaining to you why, when you were the goddess, certain things didn’t change as we would go somewhere and come back, and why they would change maybe when one was in the other form.

And there were whole dreams around that, but I didn’t really pull them out because I think there was kind of an emotional charge, but I remember that was the theme, because I would keep coming away and coming back and if things had changed, it had to do because of the form one had at that time.

John: So, the theme of the dreaming last night had to do with being able to recognize how one needs to hold, not an idea, but a need. Because if you hold any kind of idea, that then means, the counter of that is, something that needs to be done.

But if you hold the need and can hold that without there having to be a solution, or a compelled opinion, and you just hold that quality, that then beckons through the change from a higher-self into life.

But you stay in a lower energetics consciousness when you recognize that you have some opinion or another about something and you support that. When you do something like that, you are then blocking that inner flow that is important, that acts as the higher self, or as the quality of soul energy depth flowing into the whole.

And you have this example of how to be, in terms of how the soul is. The soul is confined to a human body and the limitations that seem to be implied in that regard, and thus has sacrificed its quality of being as big as the universe, or so it seems.

But the soul, through being connected to something that is in a limited space, can stay confused by that density, can stay trying to resolve issues in regards to that density, in terms of health, in terms of the limitations that that is under. Or it can access something on a greater domain that takes into account everything that exists and embody that into life through the limitation, or seeming limitation, of the human body.

In order for that to work, it cannot work within the confines of the human body way of reference, of trying to do this or that. Instead it has to identify; there has to be the recognition of the need without the notionality. When you have the notionality, then you can’t catch up with the inner flow that comes through.

So I guess what this means is that a human being is not something that is a problem solver. A human being accesses the solutions, because there are no problems. Or, a human being gets in the way of their own divinity, when they try to solve their own need. A human being is meant to be at a point of a type of letting go and surrender, in which they activate this quality of a depth deep within, which is the recognition of just holding the need and holding the need only, so that a solution can occur.

When a human being doesn’t do that, then they deny, so to speak, that part of themselves or God, or however you want to say it, the one thing that it doesn’t have. Well, obviously that’s a joke, because it has everything, but this part remains unconscious if you are interfering by having your idea on how something should unfold.

See, what you have to do is you have to hold the space. You can find me within the need, within the space, but you can’t find me within the particularities, within the subject matter. It’s just like, if one takes and goes into a situation like Israel and thinks that you are going to sit there and you’re going to hear both sides of the equation in the argument, and that it’s important for you to know both sides, the chances are you’re going to find yourself having to do a bit of pro and conning, and balancing. And knowing the detail of the issue is not what is important. What is important is that if you need to hear anything, you hear it just enough to know how great the need is – and that you then feel the need.

The idea of taking and having a whole sense about something breaking down in Egypt when we were in Egypt, and coming back, you know, feeling kind of sad as a consequence of that, but not sitting there, projecting all kinds of things that needed to happen, to resolve that, is what was important. One felt the need. To go to Egypt to just take in the sights, to move around and then come out, and as soon as one comes back, just drop that like a rag doll, is not to feel the need.

The quality of the human being is that they are alive when they access something that can flow through them, that answers or resolves the need of the situation. And if there is any iota of an involvement, or opinion, or mannerism, in any degree, that gets in the way of that being able to happen. It has to happen in a fluid way that is not restrictive by the conditions that you find yourself in, that has this humanistic quality that is very much all caught up in how a particular way something is, in terms of how it’s like the mud-puddle effect then, that we take to be so important.

The soul moves around when we sleep at night, when the mind shuts down and the senses fall away. And that should provide sufficient evidence and example as to how we need to be able to be during the daytime. We should not be a person that has to go from this to that to this to that. We should, instead, just see what the need is. Be able to not vent the need with anger, or frustration, or despair, or anything like that, because there is a pace that that need has, as a conduit, and as a flow, and as an intertwined linkage, that is self-sufficient and important in and of itself.

If you feel the need and then modify it or codify it in some way or another, that is when you start to tear yourself up.

A Tenuous Situation

3651-frantisek-drtikol-the-soulThis dream imagery looks at the relationship between a part and the whole. As humans we are always aware of, and tending to, our insulated view of life. Yet, as this scenario portrays, no matter how beautiful that small plot of life may be, it is being cared for to the exclusion of the whole. Can that state of affairs continue as the energetic changes unfold now and into the future? Well, perhaps it’s risky to believe so.

(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, I was noting how I’m able to observe how the soul moves around in me. It’s almost like, I have had this concept, I’ve known about it, but now I’m actually observing it, I’m noting it where it goes greater and more into the outer, or at least it moves around a bit. It doesn’t just sit in a set way.

I considered this so banal when I was sleeping that I didn’t know that there was anything that should be reported, but then all of a sudden when I’m writing it up I realized, wow, that’s a fairly profound thing to realize, to be able to sense an awareness of how this depth part of one’s self moves around.

And that you don’t just dismiss it as fairly natural, but it did look and feel pretty natural as if it was a fairly benign observation. And so it left me with a sense that if there was some unusual activity, or something that needed to be perceived, that the energy would cause that to be revealed to me. 

It had me pondering that, that that’s how it would be because it seemed okay and ordinary and fairly benign. I guess I would have expected, in noticing it, that that would have been a greater big deal but it wasn’t. And I guess I suppose I would have expected that part to have an attitude, or a tone, or a mood about it, the fact that it expands and contracts, but it didn’t seem to have any sense like that at all.

And in the next dream, I am talking to my brother who takes care of kind of a grocery area. No, not a grocery area, takes care of like a grassy area on a campus which is like a center of learning.

And, of course, campuses are all concrete and whatnot and, in this one building that might have two entrances, there was an area in between in which you had grass. Everything else was concrete. 

This is where the grass was planted, and it wasn’t the type of grass that you used to expect like a long grass that’s well mowed and manicured and whatnot. Because of the nature of this area, it’s hard to get this grass to grow in there, and you have to constantly tend to it, and you have to find a special kind of grass. 

Well, what he discovered was he could make a grass that had real long stems to it and could be a little more dried out, but was more of a bunch grass that grew taller and everything, and it only occupied maybe 20% of the area. The rest of it wasn’t planted. 

It only took up a small area, but it was pretty neat what he had discovered, and so he’s excited about it. Well, I can’t help but notice that he’s just covering a fraction of the area, not that the area was that big anyway. 

And he likes how it looks, but he hasn’t been able to get it to multiply and extend itself out to cover the entire area, but the area it covers is pretty interesting and magnificent. And it works under the severe conditions that exist up to this point. And you can tend to it when otherwise it might be too much for the area, and could die out if you tried to do it over the whole area, yet a small patch is workable.

And I know however that if it was not for him and his tending of this, and being excited about it, it would die off because no one has shown the attention over this spot like he has.

And the meaning is, is I am in a position of having to be centered upon a scenario which could change at any moment. In other words, if it’s not tended to, it won’t hold up. For this to change, or if I was to also be shifted to tend to something else, what there is here would just naturally die out. 

This image is portraying a tenuous situation which could change at any moment, although it is very workable when the attention is placed upon it. And if this were to happen and I in were pulled from tending over the space, which exists as a small accomplishment because I take care of it, something is going to happen.

And I foresee a paradigm that had existed, is if I was to shift, it’s going to be left to fend, and have to tend, to itself. And what is that going to be like? Or said another way, I believe that under the circumstances that currently exist on the campus that, should change occur and happen to the space, that something could actually shift, or collapse.

And it’s pretty hard to tell which. It really looks like it would collapse, that in and of itself it is a beginning, but it requires a lot of attendance. It’s not like it has to be looked after constantly. As it is, it’s not taking in the whole space. What it has done is quite interesting. 

Because I believe that the conditions have to change, are meant to change, because it isn’t holding the whole space, I’m not feeling good over what I anticipate the situation to be, or what is apt to transpire in the near future.

So to put the dream together, I guess I am expecting the way the soul currently is able to function, because I observed the soul moving around in the beginning, in which it is able to come into life as it currently exists, and move about in the cosmos as well, that the time could come when the relationship the soul has with manifestation that is tenuous, could come to an end in the way it is currently able to be. In other words, this is something as a dynamic. 

In other words, that’s an ominous foreboding. The soul moves around in a type of amnesia, and something about the chemistry of all of that sits in motion and awareness to something more, and yet how that is tended to and dealt with in the physical requires something more to be brought through.

That what is there is wonderful in its own way, and exciting, but unless it takes on a greater overallness, it is vulnerable. And if it’s vulnerable, it could die out under certain circumstances. It’s just tenuous as it is, and so there is a foreboding that exists

A Golden Opportunity

Golden OpportunityThis brief dream imagery triggers the spiritual journey at the deepest levels: Why are humans here, and what are we supposed to do with our lives? To understand this issue of human purpose, we need to explore how letting go of our earthly, ego-driven viewpoint is the first step toward connecting with the greater universe. Human life is just such an opportunity – to connect and align with the purposes of creation. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: And in this other [dream], I wish I’d written it up straightaway because, again, I have this at such a deep inner level, when I hear it from this place it makes so much sense, and is so simple, to me that I don’t bring it through and write it up in manifestation, so to speak, because it seems trite. But when I do, it’s meaningful.

So I just remembered the one thing, and that was I am told that it is a crime to be merely swept away. And there was another line that preceded this, and it was like a type of poem, and what I realized that we were talking about, and what it meant, was that in creation you’re there for a reason.

You don’t just then complain and try to get out of it and go to the expanse of things, to seek that, without taking on what you’re here for, which is to be able to bring all of that into play. To go to where you’re swept away into the expanse is a crime.

And so I’m just sitting here and pondering various statements that have been made that kind of portray that. And I remember that it has been said that the angels quest for a human body so they can come closer to God. So I guess if you get in a human body and blow it, then that’s like a crime because you went to all of this effort and then when you got here you were too dumb to know better.

It has also been said that we want union, God wants separation, so we accept what God wants trusting that there is a promise of both. And that’s the noodling inside that happens where you have the quality of a union when you let go of the limitations that you take on, that holds you back, that happens in a dense world where you’re always contending with things and are contending with them with the senses. You can get caught thinking that that’s how it works.

And then there’s that union state, or that state where there’s an interconnectivity where the soul expands, and from that is the access of everything that you need.

It is also said that God holds a soul between two fingers. One minute he turns us away, and the next minute he turns us back to him, which again is like going to the inner on the in-breath in, back to a home, and then the out-breath back out into creation where it can be confusing and bewildering again – and the yearning and longing start up.

There is also the statement that to be able to be in God when he is not present is the deepest state a human being can reach. In other words, how can you be in God, when he’s not present and reach such a deep state, if you refuse to accept that and only want it your way as a union, and therefore reject the creation of things?

So to sum up, we are in a human body and while in this condition need to accept the greater purpose of such a state. To throw it away is like a crime in that this blows a golden opportunity to be in a oneness, and the opportunity to bring the eyes and ears of the creator into his creation.
