There are many reasons for us to be chased in a dream, but it’s always good to remember that we are all the characters in our dreams, so we are always chasing ourselves. If we can understand that, we may also understand that there isn’t anywhere to go. We may be able to delay or avoid something, but we haven’t gained anything, and we’ve much more likely lost out on a new potential that would have been created had we let ourselves be caught and a union made. Dreams are an interface where our inner life can speak to our outer life, and it often has useful advice.

John: In my dream last night I’m taking and dealing with kind of a repeat. In other words, I’m trying to see, and identify, that which I am able to detect as being there, but cannot see. In other words, it’s like being able to notice something as a quality that isn’t all out front and in the open. This is a quality where you first of all have to be able to see something at a deeper depth inside of yourself that’s more in a stillness, or at least that’s how I feel that I have to do. And apparently I feel that I have to do this because I’ve been trying to do this for quite some time in a repeat way.
In other words, night after night I’m on this theme. I cannot seem to let it go. I apparently am convinced I can get to the bottom of this, or, in other words, get to something that’s behind it all. A part of me can’t seem to catch up with because of some mannerism, or modality, in one’s nature that keeps one from seeing it.
And so what’s been missing in something like this is a dream. And so the dream I had, in relationship to getting something like this to break through, involves me and another person and we’re searching. We’ve gone into this cabin, this mountain home or something, that’s way off the beaten track of things, and we’re not the owners of this place. We’re kind of like spies. We’ve snuck into this house.
This is a cabin that’s quite isolated. It’s not a place where anyone would go to as a destination. And it’s in the middle of the winter; weather outside is extremely cold. Actually, it’s next to a glacier; there is no civilization.
And so I’m spying, trying to figure something out, trying to get to the bottom of something, when in from the front door and that’s like kind of out the side, that’s an area that looks out to the back we’ll say, and in from the front door the owner has come back.
And so I and my friend, we have to leave immediately, and we don’t have time to dress appropriately for the weather conditions outside. In other words, we don’t belong in the house, and so to escape out the back, if one’s going to try to escape out the back, involves having to deal with this huge mountain – and ordinarily this wouldn’t be something that anyone would try.
Things are just extremely treacherous. Now if I had paused to think about what I was doing I would’ve realized that trying to escape like this is ridiculous, but, because the owner came back the adrenaline kicked in and was pushing me to step out of my comfort zone. Not only was I warm, based upon something that kicked in like adrenaline, or kundalini energy, or whatever you’d call it, but also I would’ve never been able to even think of tackling this mountain, yet here I was going up effortless scaling this. And if I had thought about it I wouldn’t have even tried, and yet somehow I was climbing it. Even though I knew that one slip and it would be curtains, I didn’t pay any attention to that. I was warm, and I was scaling it. I didn’t give it a thought as to where that was going to take me.
And, as I’m scaling this, I keep doing this. I don’t stop. I mean even if for a split second I might actually pause to realize that this is ridiculous, but I also can tell that the owner of this cabin has to know that he disturbed intruders, and he could easily take a high-powered rifle and, until I get to a particular point, I’m within rifle range.
But this doesn’t happen. Apparently the owner has reached the conclusion: why bother? I mean, where am I going? The conditions in this atmosphere will take care of everything in due time.
So, to truly let go is to access an inner guidance which carries a person into the impossible and surreal. This is a place within that a person would not find, or go to, ordinarily, if they thought about things, or took into account the outer appearances.
What I am doing is breaking through a veil that everyone knows is a hopeless situation, or an unacceptable situation, and I should know this as well that it’s hopeless and unacceptable, but I do not. I don’t know because I lack the full picture, but carry instead an adrenaline-charged energetic focus and attention that’s able to persevere.
In other words, if you hold a certain energetic space inside, you can get through anything. You can slice through whatever is there because it all has a meaning, and a reason, and a purpose; even if it is bizarre, it serves a purpose.
So what the dream is kind of saying, so to speak, or suggesting or implying, first of all, I shouldn’t have been able to do what I was doing. I shouldn’t have been able to race outside without the proper clothes on and not immediately get cold. And I shouldn’t have been able to even begin to scale this mountain, yet I was doing that. So it is from a passionate adamancy that a breakthrough is possible.
