In school, the teacher gave us book report assignments, but they were never about the plot, or events, in the story, as much as they were encouragements to dig deeper to find the essence, or meaning behind the story. And this is how it is in our physical world: everything has meaning, and everything can show us something about life. What the physical thing is is only a fraction of the story; and we are looking for the bigger world that can be unlocked through what we see before us.

John: New information of the dreaming last night is that the props in manifestation aren’t where it’s at. Within the props of manifestation is the embedded essence, or secret substance of all that there is.
And so then the question becomes, what is important? Is there something important in the props of manifestation? There’s nothing important in the props of manifestation, but there’s something important within the essence that is within those props that is in manifestation. To access that you have to distinguish between the props being the props, and the essence therein.
Now, what happens is, just like when you have fire and smoke, the props represent something that is implicative of something deeper within. Now the props aren’t permanent, in other words the props vary, undulate, in relationship to how that essence is expanding or contracting, or alive or quickened, or however you want to say that. And so what happens with the props, which is where people put their attention, is unimportant. So it’s as if the outer shrediments of things, of manifestation, are instrumental, in an inflective way, for a person to let go to their overallness as an energetic atmosphere in all that there is.
And that the props serve as a beacon, you might call it revelational, but actually this is a type of revelation that is of a glimpse-type nature, primarily, because what you see and sense in the outer are mostly just the props, even though you have a sense of so much more.
The problem is that it’s as if the props have an entity nature to them in which we are concerned with how things are around us, as an atmosphere of props of manifestation. And what is real could care less about that. And, therefore, therein lies a dilemma because the changes that occur around us, the degree to which we look at those, and respond to those, in terms of the props of manifestation, is the degree to which we then insist upon a finite orientation.
When there is the infinite orientation, to the all-permeating vibration that goes into all things, and you are in touch with that, then you’re in touch with a flow that effuses out of the heart and has no impingements, in terms of identification to the props. So it’s as if the props can come and go, which means that, in a way, what happens to the body is not where your attention is fully placed either, even though the body is important in terms of the essence it houses. If the indulgence is to that of the body, the physicality of the body, or of the props, then you end up with another delirium, and veil, in the way.
And so, in the sorting out, there is a certain recklessness that exists. And the recklessness is that things can happen to the props, things can happen to manifestation. And if you dwell upon that which happens to manifestation, and that dwelling causes you to shut down the heart, then you are saying that the props have a hold on you. And, if the props have a hold on you, then the props ultimately get destroyed.
If the props have no hold on you, then they are okay in terms of them being a proper inflectiveness that is in a free-flow. So the dilemma that exists is it’s all about, again, the heart and the breath of the wholeness, of the essence, of the all-permeating essence of ourself, both inner and in the outer.
