Posts Tagged ‘the trance of the collective’

bridge-cosmic_bridge3In waking life we can act a part, or play a role; we can seem to be something we are not. The energy worlds don’t work like that. For us to truly embody compassion – and radiate it – we have to have genuine compassion in us. And it is the radiation of what we embody that is our true portrait in the world. That is what is meant when it is said: be the change you want to see in the world. Be it; live it; embody it. No amount of pretense can fake it, and it isn’t a part-time gig.

John: So in my meditation dream I am trying to get others to understand that in making decisions there is an aliveness of all parts of myself in everything that exists. Because I am in everything that means that whatever I do affects everything around me.

So I am posing the question, in other words in the environment that I’m in, amongst those who don’t quite have this same sense, that don’t have the sense even, that I have because they’re used to doing things in an outward way that they consider has more value, and a little more democratic or something like that. And they have their values all caught up in things like that.

So I’m asking the questions, how do I vote, or make a decision in a democratic society which sees everything to be separate – when that isn’t actually so? And, of course, I’m posing this as something as if they should know this, and they don’t know this. So, consequently, I’m up against their perspective that each a person has to account just for themselves. They are just one vote; that this is what works.

Well, I realize that’s a huge barrier, maybe I can figure out how to break it down. I had taken too big of a gulp here, that everything is intertwined or whatever is kind of where I’m coming from to begin with, but I mean they’re still coming from the standpoint that everything is separate.

So how do you have a conversation? Suddenly I realize that there are instances in which a person can have two different opinions, and may have two different approaches to a subject. In which case, shouldn’t that be good for a half vote?

So I argue that maybe you don’t have to take into account all of it, but what about a half vote? In other words, can I get them to understand that they can see themselves broken up a little bit in this way where you can have kind of a divided approach? And so I point out the instances where this can happen and I cite some examples and, although this is a difficult concept to establish, because I’m able to cite a precedent for it I’m able to get this part understood.

That is the meditation dream. In my particular case, that greater wholeness or whatever is something that resonates as if it’s in my bones. In other words, I’m just not able to be just totally natural. A person who’s able to be totally natural really, really totally natural, doesn’t actually even need to meditate because, somehow or another, they’re in sync with the way the alignment of things is unfolding.

But that’s not my case. I really, really struggle to catch up and recognize that there is something triculating that I can sense in my bones, or I could sense how everything is intertwined and whatnot. And so I’m broken down into all of the piece-meals to try to get there, instead of just the natural “in it” flow.

And so I bring this kind of energetic down, that can really make one kind of crazy, and I try to get it to sort itself out in the outer. And so I struggle with the appearances from this echo space, in other words trying to get the echo space across in spite of the appearances.

So, in the dream, I am shown that although I am becoming more and more able to recognize, function, and see things more in terms of an overall aliveness in life, that this is not true for others who only have the experience of their senses to work with.

But it is becoming easier and easier for me to relate to life like that but others do not share this… in other words, this isn’t necessarily echoing in others. Others, the degree to which they’re caught up in the outer, is a flow that has them immersed with having created a whole sorting-out in relationship to their mind and their senses.

They haven’t caught up to this triculating in their bones kind of thing, nor are they living in a naturalness in which you get to a point where it just seems to evolve to where you’re helping others just out of the blue because you just caught up with the completeness that just naturally flowed that you somehow took in properly.

In this instance, for me, I’m just going to have to accept that although I may have a different perceptive awareness, that this doesn’t mean that mainstream society automatically gets the inkling of it just because that’s where I’m coming from. In other words, in order for them to get the inkling, there’s something more in the feminine that’s needed, but we don’t go there in this part of the dreaming.

So I’m surprised that the mainstream is that out of it and, just because I’m becoming more and more oriented in this regard, I guess the problem that exists is I tend to forget that there was a time when this wasn’t so. So I need to reflect, or inflect, upon those parts of myself that are still in the veil.

If I’m not able to do this, then that means I, too, could end up having to relate to life in a distorted and misaligned way, and find myself subject to being affected by others as if they are separate from me.

This can’t happen. I can’t do this. It’s gotten to the point where maybe before I would have dipped in and out of this kind of illusion, but now it’s getting harder and harder because I know that it doesn’t work that way. This is why I’m able to be in a setting of energy that is uncomfortable.

And so because I realize that it doesn’t work that way, meaning that the way everyone else has designed and placed themselves you have people who live in environments that feel comfortable to them in the environment because they made this separate distinction. You have people that belong to philosophies and religions because that’s what feels comfortable to them.

And people kind of associate with themselves in these various categories and, consequently, they remain trapped in that kind of collective attachment. But I seem to have let go of all of that where I could be okay in any kind of setting. This is what I am starting to catch up with in terms of recognizing that I’ve changed. Most people cannot.

Most people still need to work within the confines of a safe space. And they’re comfortable in their different motifs because they’re holding onto their self images as being who they are. If I did this, I would have to pick and choose what part of society I could live in. In other words, I’d have to do the same thing.

I can’t do that because I’m in everything, I’m unable to cut off these other parts of myself. I have to include them. And I’m surprised life is comprised of so many different ways of being, religions to follow, economic systems that are each deemed relevant where they’re found and not relevant somewhere else, and so on, which creates the confusion over who we are.

In other words, because I’m starting to see that I’m identifying with an aliveness that is all about, that I’m not separate from it, and I’m not effected by the differentialities that the outer has gotten into by misconstruing through reflective appearances which has then created their support systems in the physical through a sense of duality.

And as I’m finding that I’m in a wholeness, I’m also finding that only by a certain energetic presence, that I’m able to embody, am I able to uphold this truth. Otherwise, I would get caught in all of that reflectively, too. And I’m realizing that I can’t say this. My words need to come across vibrationally for this to be accepted, in other words, something behind the words, or something in my nature needs to do the communicating.

I can’t explain to someone why it is, in the collective mannerism that they’re caught in, in the particulars, because they have taken and made it all make sense in terms of the beliefs that they have, the values they have, they’ve got it all twined together. So if I try to correlate and relate that way, my words would only touch the mind and senses of how things are in the outer, and there would not be a common ground.

So in my dream I was defining the bridge that needs to be crossed, that is the only way this inflects upon a misaligned collective. And it’s the only way that you can maintain an unwavering energetic focus that comes from within. In other words, the only way that it works is you have to maintain this unwavering energetic focus that comes from within – and then it inflects upon the misaligned collective.

But if you try to speak and direct and talk to the collective about starting from the collective standpoint, you might be able to create flickers; if they don’t catch the flickers, they don’t get it, and they continue to understand in an outer capacity way.

And if I try to make it make sense to them by going to where they’re at, I then am giving up my sense of who I am because this would be approach going in the wrong direction, a direction that isn’t real.

The outer reality base is just lost in trying to make senses out of outer reflections, and I know that it’s lost, and you can’t take what is lost and work with something else from a lost way of talking about it in order to somehow or another get beyond it – because those conditions, that manner of reflection, always works with separation and you have to get beyond the veils of separation in order to touch the inner flow.

And so the sad thing is that life without the connection to the inner flow… it can’t help itself. It just formulates its own values and identities that go along with the way it paints its illusion, or its view of life.

So I may be getting more and more able to see this as strange, but others cannot get through the veil and therefore remain in the warring brother mentality of us and them.
