Posts Tagged ‘the stillness within’

It seems a strong impulse in humans to improve things. And each person, in their way, may try to improve things for others. Yet we must always be conscious of where the urge comes from within us: is it from the brain? Is it from the psychologies? Is it from the emotions? Each of these places inside have their own agenda, based on various factors. That’s why it is said to “listen to the heart,” because the heart responds from a higher guidance.

John: You can also say this is what a lot of people are doing. They’re trying to change the world, and they don’t accept the way things are thought-wise coming out, so they’re trying to take that into something that’s of a different orientation, which is a timelessness. Nor do they accept the setting that they find themselves in. So they’re trying to change and shift that – this is the container energy – which is a spaciousness.

But they don’t know how to do this by being still, they haven’t reached that part of an awareness yet. So they’re still functioning in an actionable way. And you can feel this actionability, and you can feel the substance of that, and that becomes nauseating. Well, what it becomes is it becomes something that you feel on the heart, and you just assume that because you feel this suffering, or whatever it is, to the heart, you just assume that that’s just the way that it is, it comes with the territory or something.

But no, no, no. The heart is there, reflecting like it is reflecting, to point out that you’re doing something wrong. The heart’s not there to maintain some sort of rearguard action against you, it’s on your side, it’s not against you. And so when you’re wayward and trying to impose upon the heart, you have to pay attention why it is that the heart acts like it acts, it’s not doing that because it doesn’t know any better, or that it needs to be trained to be different, or something, which is another spiritual illusion. 

So there is this saying, on earth as it is in heaven, or a saying that, the kingdom of heaven lies within. And both of those statements require a letting-go of an actionability that stifles the heart. Our true role, in manifestation, which makes this a better place – because so many people are into making something in an actionable way a better place – has to do and because it’s all goal-oriented, so let’s pretend and stay with the goal-oriented scheme works, so if there is a goal-oriented term, then such a thing is accessible only in the all-pervasive stillness.

An all-pervasive stillness is the action that is actionless. This being a mirror of the created to the Creator, and the Creator to the created. From a mystical way of speaking, the Creator comes into creation as an out-breath. And the created goes back to the Creator as an in-breath. And this journeying stops and there’s nothing but stillness. That’s the bigger step. That’s the meditation dream.

0_zvIt’s obviously tempting to offer our solutions for any situation we may find ourselves in. But, from a certain viewpoint, this is pointless because we live in a duality, a place of opposites, so most times a solution is just an attempt to rebalance something from the opposite extreme. In this way, it’s not a real solution, it’s just soothing the symptoms not addressing the actual cause. If we, instead, can hold an inner stillness, then we offer the two opposites an opportunity to refine, or elevate, which is an evolutionary change. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Well, when you initially meditate, and you just go somewhere that is very soothing, and then suddenly you just come back out of the Dhyana of the meditation, you’ve gone into a place that’s very, very soothed and has quickened an attunement, so to speak, such that if you were affected by something in the outer during the day, that normally you would just gloss over, or just would fall by the way boards, you’ve actually kind of picked up something inside of yourself as kind of a speed, or a pace, or a depth that comes close to that.

Now, eventually, you’ll get so that you can actually see that, you can actually note that, in the meditation. But, initially, all you’re doing is tweaking that as if it is something that has been stimulated by the molecular of your nature, it’s been stimulated, embedded, as if it’s embedded within as a vibrational imprint within the molecular of your nature.

And so, then, when you come to bed, because that’s been stimulated, and not at a depth yet, or at a point yet, where you can notice that in the meditation dream, you are noticing it somewhere on an inner depth of yourself, so then when you come to bed, when you dream, you can go deeper with your dreams, you can go to this point more easily. Otherwise, you might be affected by other things and such, that are going on in the outer, the malaise of things being so much – thoughts upon thoughts upon thoughts of things, the reflective being to such a great degree that you go around and around in a kind of a malaise, a delirium, unable to… well, you don’t go anywhere, you’re caught in that.

But, from having meditated and quickened something, then you can develop these inflections, these light bulb moments, that leak through, so to speak, that you can grasp in the dream world, instead of it being all smothered. This kind of understanding is something that needs to exist in life, because when you come across situations where you see things that are askew, the thing that you need to be able to see and to note is: why are they askew? Sometimes they’re askew because something has come up that has been repressed, into the nature of a person, is leaking out now, it no longer can stay repressed.

And sometimes things are shut down because there is a trauma built into what you see in the outer, and that trauma is shut down. And you can look at that, and you can know that, eventually, that will not necessarily stay the case when you can see that the nature of the person is unnatural because of something.

And, generally, when you see this, you can’t put your finger on what that is because it’s oftentimes a pre lifetime. It’s just part of a veil that the soul hasn’t worked through yet, and does not necessarily have anything to do with the outer conditions that you’re aware of – in this lifetime. So it can be a pre lifetime thing.

And so everyone has this condition. And this condition is something that has to run its course in our nature. In other words, this amnesia has to run through, and, when it runs through, we are able to come more into an intertwined connectivity of our being, everything then starts to make sense as a quality of an unfoldment. But, until it does, then we, too, are victims and caught in this kind of atmosphere that pervades wherever and however you look. And yet there are attempts to shift that.

The underlying difference in all of these threads is where’s the heart? The question you asked, or the point that you made, in relationship to your meditation, in terms of the fact that you just go somewhere and you suddenly come out soothed, that’s how it starts. That’s the Dhyana. And eventually it gets deeper and deeper to the point where you might even start becoming conscious of what it is that you are getting into the depth of, in a very quiet way, that you’re capable of dealing with.

Because, if approached too directly, it will drive you crazy. It will be something that causes you to crack up, because to look at certain things, in terms of whatever the trauma was, that trauma, or that quality which was too much for you, and everyone has this too much ism in their nature of some trauma or another, that causes crack-ups.

And so that’s why a path of consciousness to awaken, and to get out of the reflective outer, is a very, almost dangerous and awkward path to take because you have to come to grips with this aspect of yourself in order to become real.

So the things that you’ve gone through when you’ve gone astray from the stillness have caused you to experience things that are over the top, too much, and then you repress those into your nature. And then you use a certain heartfulness energy, and expansive quality spaciousness of your being, to keep those things in check. And, every now and then, they leak out. And they have to leak out. And, in some cases, they are measured in the way that they leak out, so that they come out slowly, but, in some cases, they come out very quickly. And if they come out too quickly, they can lead to insanity and a crack up.

And so, how do you deal with a humanity that is caught up like this, that has this as a condition? The only way you can deal with that is you have to deal with them, helping them, to see the silence of a stillness, of a quality inside of themselves, so that they can redeem themselves. Otherwise, there is a fight, you create more delirium, which is another fighting of it on another level.

And therefore nobody gets to a stillness and the silence. What you have to do is you have to work with and accommodate the atmosphere, which is done in a silent way, not with any kind of overt direction. And, if you support it in a silent way, it then is following a course of evolution and unfoldment that is meant to be. And that’s why it happens like it happens, but we always have our opinion, or our belief, or our rationalization, or our trying to figure something out getting in the way. The silence is the only answer, no solutions.
