In our spiritual journey, and in our dreams, we are trying to connect to an inner level, a level of the unconscious, and bring it into consciousness. We can do this while awake if we are not too full in ourselves with the nonsense of daily life. We can do this with our dreams if we are able to remember them upon waking and gain the insights that they can offer us. And we can also get glimpses of the unconscious when we are in that in-between state, between waking and sleeping at night, and between sleeping and waking in the morning.

John: There is a quality within that is ordinarily so repressed, and so pent up, that it’s like at a stop sign, or it is limited from flowing, because it has tones, moods, mannerisms, outer involvements, whatever you want to call it, that keep it from awakening as a presence of being.
For me it’s more of a type of flow and action. The way I approach that is, first of all, I’m starting to contend with a kind of hypnagogic as I’m falling into the stillness of meditation. Now this opening up happens in the hypnagogic of the falling asleep zone.
Now I’ve heard, of course, that the hypnagogic was both in the falling asleep and in the waking up, and had only been in touch with that as a quality of contending with the myriad of vibrations, and streamlining those myriad of vibrations, in the waking up process – or the hypnagogic coming from sleep to the senses again.
I am only recently coming to realize that the hypnagogic works in the going to sleep. And, when it works in that regard, it does take in the qualities of being able to recognize how something is meaningful in relationship to an unfolding revelation around you, or, in other words, like a translucent going to sleep imagery that has a vibration that can be deemed quite applicable to going from inner into outer.
The hypnagogic zone in the waking up is more like a zone that is coming in touch with an intertwinement kind of alignment. The hypnagogic when you are going into the stillness, and it is suddenly there before you’re somewhere deep, deep somewhere, is a zone in which there is the breakthrough of that stillness into the outer, or into life. In other words, it’s where the revelation is lived, so to speak, when the other is waking up.
And so my meditation dream, the way that came across was that I was able to tell, based upon the meditation dream, that what I’m going through within, or able to see from within, is connected to an innerness as a value, and I am able now to know the importance even when in the outer you’re not generally ready to notice the correlation, yet to live it you have to see the correlation that everything is part of this coming together.
And in this meditation dream I somehow know that, as strange as that may sound. To know what isn’t visible based upon an unwritten, and unfulfilled, essence, is a reaching to a connection that comes from within and touches the outer appearances. I am shown that I am able to live this inner essence in some aspect in the outer, in fact change that aspect in the outer, even though there’s no evidence other than the innerness in this hypnagogic that is visible.
The importance of an intertwined oneness is the dominant energetic of the dream. Appearances in the outer suggest that there is no reason to proceed any further, in other words, in terms of how things are without this other being there tweaking things in its own little unique way. In other words, what looks like a disconnect, discombobulated unfoldment is able to be, from deep within, intertwined to all that there is, or to what there is that’s meant to come into fruition at this time.
You can characterize it by saying that the day arrives where I need to make a choice. The choice I need to make is to the inner essence, seeable by the eyes of a subtle, all-pervasive connection. The situation is as follows, and so now I describe a scenario, and it’s from and through this scenario – in a hypnagogic way – that I was able to describe the above.
I am in possession of a value, that I need to access, that lies hidden in my beingness and the need exists for it to play a role in the outer. In the scenario, I possess a value, which is this ore deposit, that if shipped a great distance, which means that there’s no place to handle that locally, it will lose too much of its essence, because to ship it a great distance kills the awakening, and it kills what’s possible. It drains the life’s blood out of it.
What is needed is a refinery that’s nearby, that’s inclusive, to work with this, so that it can retain more of the value of its inner essence. So, in the scenario, I am shown how it is possible to bring that connection to a greater closeness, or how to go about a nearby refinery as it is in an outer appearance, in order to protect and facilitate the inner revelation, in terms of coming through.
So the meaning is, is to be able to see this, what has taken place as one is going into the stillness, I’m able to see, and dream, how to connect to an intertwined essence which predominates; in other words, it’s a hidden innerness, but I know how to flow with it, or bring it to the surface into manifestation. I’m able to do this based upon a connection I have, and therefore able to take this innerness and make the outer reflective.
See, ordinarily, when you’re waking up, when it’s the hypnagogic of waking up from a deep sleep, or stillness, back to the senses, the outer is reflective at you, as something as a glancing back, so to speak, kind of waking up.
That’s what the sensation is like, and that’s the flow and the motion, when you are having the hypnagogic state of coming from the stillness back into waking up, or coming back into a strange kind of waking up, which is back to the senses. And, as you come back to the senses, you have that reflective to the inner.
