FutureVision11Today we continue with the analysis of Jeane’s dream (see The Energy Interval). Though her dream image was a jumble, the possibilities of this new energetic realm she has opened up can take a person all the way to a merging with God. So while she is not quite there in her inner quiet or stillness, she has now gained access, and, with experience, can learn to not be thrown around. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: That’s interesting because the dream would be hard to make any sense out of, if you didn’t look at what it was doing from the point where it was at, and the reason why it’s important to notice and see the point where it’s at, is you can see the degree in which you’re steady in it.

In other words, it’s almost like there are little flashes that happened from there that must kind of hit something in creation. They’re kind of like precursor sparks because you’re jumping around in there.

And when you talk of auction in your dream, it’s an attempt to be able to denote it, or to see it, because this is something you don’t see, yet somehow you’re to see this. You see things in relationship to how there is the impact in creation and manifestation, and that somehow or another enables you to gauge or get a sense of what’s going on.

But when it’s way up there, how is it that you can get that gauge or that sense? It’s like you flicker. What would you call that? Like sun rays, it’s like they’re sparking off in some fashion, and that sparking off I guess is pent-upness. It hasn’t really quite committed itself as the will.

What’s interesting is this really, really pure light, if you were abiding in it in a really, really quiet state, would you be able to report anything? I keep thinking yes, that you can sit in this because somehow I think that this is possible, that you can sit in this interval and envision, pre the fact, in terms of incorporating or embodying that vibration, that which is there.

That’s the mystery here, if it’s totally quiet, if there is no thought or inflection of God that comes across as a will, how do you ascribe to anything? And yet the energy’s there. There has been the manifestation that’s created. There is a destiny for that manifestation, or an unfoldment for that manifestation.  

It’s all part of some great plan, so even in the quietness it’s not completely quiet because that has a fullness of time already concocted to it, so in the quietness there has to still be an allowance for this, and that you can somehow detect that within the quietness.

That’s the one aspect of the quietness that took and did something so that there would be a creation. So when you’re in a quietness, which is a greater overallness now, in which the creation is just a speck and then you’re in the quietness, you become a visionary.

That would be what would be possible if you weren’t jumping around so much. If you were to sit in the quietness, more able to just be in the quietness, there still being that inflection in the quietness that has a whole process of unfoldment in relationship to there being the creation, which came out of that quietness, and that creation is still there as a speck in that quietness.

And so if you sit with the overallness of that quietness, you can incorporate from the space a vision that will enable you to see before it is seeable, before it is experiential, as the will. 

Wow, that is a merging with God, to be able to do that. Ordinarily the comment is something like, you aren’t God, but you can have access to the will of God, or as that vibration comes down in and affects creation. And yet at the same time, you know that you have to say it that way because the audacity to say it some other way, like Al Hallaj did, you know where, I am God, or whatever, which is like a type of blasphemy.

At some deep depth inside of him, it wasn’t a blasphemy, but at a depth of himself in a waking sense state that’s a blasphemy. It’s because at some deep depth inside of him he could go to that point in which there was the quietness, in which he could have the vision of things to be.

And in that sense, yes, I am God. But in the sense in which he finds and orients and looks at everything as an aspect in creation, then he just is an aspect or speck in creation that has access to the will of God.

And so, you are in the point, which is a type of Traveling in God – that’s also what this interval is like, it’s a Traveling in God. It’s the in-breath. It’s the true home of the Sufi. 

You’re pretty loud, is the problem. You’re pretty loud yet, in that. The quieter you could be, the more you can have the vision of it all, which is more like, then, an Al Hallaj thing. You’re a restless cat trying to see which way the inflections, and yet you’re busy guarding and looking at this auction of things to be.

But the importance of the dream is to denote, and start to denote, what it feels like from a top-of-the-breath way of dreaming. I find that actually kind of amazing that you dreamt it like that because now it proves that the feminine isn’t just sitting here taking the bombardment coming down from creation, or coming down from God or something, that the feminine also holds that quietness inside of her of the in-breath interval.

Yes, she’s associated, and more oriented, to taking all of the inflections and will that come down in a masculine vibratory sense, but she can knock it off if she can get still, and quiet, and quit zipping and zapping – stop the doingness. She can sit in that interval, too, and have the vision of things to be.

Jeane: I had a dream in which I was a therapist, but I seem to be working in a teaching setting. I’m moving to Portland, Oregon so I’m in my room saying goodbye to one of my students who’s a little bit upset about it.

This student is a woman and I’m talking to her about what she could do next. I’m encouraging her to get involved in a group or to stay in touch with me; I like to know how people are doing and we’re talking about that.

In the middle of our talk, a male supervisor comes in my room and looks in the closet. He discovers a box of evaluation forms that he’d put there and forgotten.

It’s kind of an interruption to my conversation with the woman because he has this kind of attention-deficit thing going on where he has to look for the forms, and wants me to talk to him later, but he doesn’t have any boundaries about when it’s appropriate to come in my room or not.

Then he leaves and I finish the conversation.

John: This is a dream about being able to be at ease with all parts of yourself. It starts off with you saying goodbye and counseling the student. But actually you’re counseling part of your feminine self in terms of how it can stay in touch with a linkage it has made.

In other words, something is changing, i.e., the dynamic upon which there’s a connection has changed. It no longer needs the same closeness or proximity because another means has opened up by which it can be recognized.

In the beginning, it’s important for a student to get together with the teacher and spend time around and in the presence of them. A teacher has a certain kind of energetic that can come across, or be taken in, or recognized, or awakened in the student.

In the image this appears as if it’s coming from the teacher to the student but, actually, what’s happening is the interaction is awakening a quality in the student that’s been lost or dormant. All the teacher is doing is acting as a mirror to cause this to happen.

Once this awakening occurs, then the student takes on this trait or quality through which they can begin to see their self connected to something originally reflected by the teacher, but is now a part of the student’s ability or linkage from within.

Because the image shows you leaving the student, it also means that you’re able to stand more on your own feet because you have a connection inside that you know how to reach, and you can reach it now when you couldn’t before. You can now take that and extend it out, in terms of others, and recognize yourself in them.

It’s a very interesting dynamic when this part takes hold. You’ll notice, for example, in our dream group a person will tell their dream and they want it interpreted from the standpoint that it was their dream and it’s what they’re going through. The analysis needs to resonate with them. But it also needs to resonate with the people listening, because there comes a point where the dream and the entire group interaction is intertwined. It’s not something that stands separate.

For the longest time, that person is going to insist that this is their particular thing, and that it’s peculiar to them and, as a result, they’re going to be identifying and holding themselves separate from everyone else, as opposed to intertwined.

And the dilemma that exists is they’re still acting like they have to sort something out, rather than recognizing that they’re in all things or that all things are in them. That’s still a state of traveling towards God, which is different to traveling with God.

Your dream is showing you, in terms of an overallness, that you’re not limited now to a particular place or space that you have made a connection to, so that you can be somewhere else and it can be okay because you have the means by which to hold a support system, in terms of yourself, in the overall.

See, the overall is a support system. Generally, as humans, we don’t use the overall. We rely upon our own devices, separately, because we see everything as distinct from how we are and, therefore, we rely upon on our own wits and mannerisms in terms of coping.

That’s how we tend to see it, but when we get to the point where we don’t see ourselves as distinct and separate, then that’s the point where we have an inner connection that’s supported by its relationship to the whole, and that’s what it means to bring the inner into the outer.

We’ll continue this discussion tomorrow, in The Big Drama.

John: In your last two dreams, both from the same night, you were looking at a connection to the wholeness within you (signified by the journey toward your home) on a vibratory level. What you discovered was a distance, or disconnection, between you and this vibration (the distractions on your way home). You then examined this distance or disconnection at two different levels, appearing first as shame (in the presence of the teacher) and then as grief (at the funeral). (For the previous threads in this sequence see, in order, Thick as a Brick, The Teacher Inside, and The Procession.)

What’s actually occurring in terms of “going home,” is you’re traveling to a greater inner depth. In other words, you’re at an inner threshold, the precursor to your inner light rising up to touch the greater light, and you are prevented from that connection (represented by guilt followed by grief; not much difference there).

Yet in Creation it’s the inner longing that opens up the light rising up to touch the light that makes the difference. You’re considered to be Traveling Toward God when the spirit energy is coming down as if to awaken you, or to align you, or to cause you to let go of things in life. But you don’t start Traveling In God until your light rises up to touch the light.

So you’re seeing that, within you, these two primary qualities still stand in the way – the grief and the guilt, or the guilt for grief. Being a woman, this is the feminine approach. The masculine approach to this same dilemma of disconnection is slightly different, because the masculine acts as if it has to work with the details or the specifics: the seed thought behind it all.

At the deepest depth of the masculine there is a naturalness that just knows this stuff. However, the masculine, over time, has gotten out of touch with that, or, as the teacher would say, has gotten off the ground. As a consequence, the seed thoughts don’t complete the loop. They don’t come down and touch something and then rise up as light rising up… as something rising up.

All of the good intentions, no matter what they are, of the masculine – he’s the bearer of the seed thought of the Divine Will – are for naught until this wholeness is invoked (this light rising up to touch light).

Everything else is a precursor to that. Yes it can help a bit, it can create a different sense of balance when there is communion in working toward this awakening (as opposed to one being left floundering on their own), but nothing of any real consequence takes place that’s effective in life until we have our light rising up to touch light.

Until then we’re simply rearranging things, i.e., trading one distraction for another. But this describes a coming together between a human and Creation. It completes the loop, so there is a completion in Creation rather than just a one-way transmission.

The reason I wanted to revisit this process is because I had a dream with a similar distraction, or disconnection. It starts where yours starts in terms of wholeness and overallness; you start off knowing how to go home to your mother. I start off with a sense of something having been naturally given to me that’s already complete, but what unfolds and takes place in that natural completeness is very revealing of what is preventing the light in me rising to touch the light.

You struggled with the deviation where part of you created a situation from which you needed to be rescued, but, because you we’re already on the path (home), it was enough to allow something to reach you and touch you and help you get back on track.

In my particular case, it’s like that in that there’s an intent in what I’m doing, but it’s all for naught. The intent may appear in some minute way to set the stage for something that’s destined to happen, but it would have happened anyway.

So this discussion is a precursor in itself, because I will get into the description of my dream tomorrow.
