Posts Tagged ‘veils keep us from reality’

lxtptcIt’s virtually impossible to truly understand something without experiencing it. And in religions, and on spiritual paths, we constantly hear about the oneness of life, and are told that the world around us is an illusion. This cannot be grasped intellectually. It must be experienced – and that is done through higher connections. Because what we do experience every day, automatically, are our lower connections to whatever energies are “in our neighborhood,” or generated by our thoughts and intentions. It is higher connections that let us see what is real, because they have the intelligence and flow we are seeking. And higher connections come when we begin to live our lives for something greater than our selves.

John: I didn’t meditate as long as I usually do. I came out of it after about an hour, but it took a couple of hours to write this up, and I didn’t write up much because I kept going in and out of it going somewhere and coming back after half an hour, going somewhere, all in the process of trying to write this up.

So we live in an outer world in which the essence is hidden. Philosophers and other pundits speak of an inner essence behind outer manifestation. To be able to see through the projections is the challenge everyone is presented with in physical existence.

To not do so is the condition of being veiled from our inner beingness. I feel a huge weight of relief lifted as I notice that I am able to see, and denote, the hidden inner reality within the outer projections. And I can do that from within myself.

I may think that what I am able to do is easy but, over the years, I have come to know that this isn’t so. I may not be able to say much to the parts of myself still in the clutches of the veils. The reason is, seeing is believing. In other words, if you don’t see it, then how can you believe it? In other words, you can’t describe something that isn’t experiential or something, or relatable from a sense like that – even on an inner sense.

Until you see through the projections, the philosophy of the pundits, with regards to a oneness, is just another projection. So a person remains lost in veils of outer projections until they are destined to awaken within. To not be free of the clutches of the senses, and therefore unable to see through personal projections to what is real, is what physical manifestation is about for the lower self. For those who make the breakthrough, there is an actual awareness of the soul of life within all of manifestation. That’s kind of the dream.

Now what caused the dream to go around and around, was inside of myself it’s like the breath just gets really full, and the in-breath races into a home somewhere as I suddenly, from within the dream, have an aspect of an outer – and I see right through the outer to what it’s about. And the outer has a shadowy aspect, or it has a shimmer aspect, that is a murk within the outer.

That’s what I saw. Now you don’t open your eyes and see that in the physical, but when you see that within then you know that the outer is a projection, and within that outer is something coming from inner – and that’s what is meaningful. And to be able to be in a condition of your being so that that can happen, well, you just don’t do that in the outer, you do that on the inner when you totally let go, when you don’t have the senses or something creating the personal moving around.

So, this is an unusual dream that I wasn’t sure I’d be able to understand. So in the dream I’m going into an area of light from dark. I mean you can almost create the image, a visual, that would be something like this.

Let’s say you’re walking by kind of a place that you’re unfamiliar with, and you decide to turn and go over to it. And the place has a lot of light to it, and when you turn to go over to it you are kind of darkish in your demeanor. And as you go over to it, what you see is it’s a wheel, and instead of prongs that stick out in the front, the prongs stick out going down and it’s like a grinder, it grinds in.

And so then there are a couple people, a woman, there and you have to pay her to go and do whatever this is about. And so I hand her a bill. She takes the bill and immediately shows the bill to the guy; it’s like there’s something unusual about the bill.

And so I knew that they came out with new bills, and so I ask her what she’s looking at, and suddenly I see on this bill a number that has been embossed that’s really dark. It stands out. I hadn’t noticed it. I mean at first glance it jumps right out at you, and it’s smudged. And so as I see this I’m thinking oh, well she’s taking it because the printer smudged this in some fashion, but I notice that what it is is it’s a number and the lower numbers on the bills are worth a lot.

And it’s not a lower number, it’s a six digit number. You know, in order for it to be worth something it would have to be like a number from like say 1 to 100, and then it would be worth 1,000s of dollars as a $1 bill or whatever it was. And so I don’t get it, and then I wake up.

And then I realize that there was something else about this bill. I saw it at the time, but didn’t know what to make out of it. There was just the number, and I think I kind of commented, isn’t there supposed to be another image on this bill? There was no other image, and usually the image that you have on a bill is an image of a president or something. There was no president embossed, nor was there a scene of the Statue of Liberty or anything like that that you might have on a bill. It was just money print with a stamp there, without the image.

So the comment was, is I was not going to wake up and write up the dream, but I heard a sound within that brought me back. So I took this as a sign to write up what was happening, thinking that it would have to pop through then.

And so the energetic feel is that, in this dream, it seems I am transitioning into a new place within – and I am doing it in a nonchalant, indifferent way. However, what is happening is drawing an attention that has a meaningfulness in that the process is an atypical transitioning.

So then to try to understand the atypical transitioning, I try to describe the scenario that could’ve influenced this because one’s influenced by the inflections of things in the outer. That’s why it’s very important in terms of how you carry yourself in the outer, because you leave yourself receptive to things that then can inflect, and not be veiled out, if you’re all oppressed or something estranged in the outer. Sometimes then that creates a denseness that keeps something from flickering through.

ima0Here is a dream that, in the listening to it, or the reading of it, it feels very familiar. And, perhaps, that’s because this experience happens to us in subtle ways all the time. What the imagery is pointing to are the lost opportunities, or doorways that once were open now being closed to us. And, yes, as the image shows, we can rationalize the moment away, but we may never know what that path may have made possible. These lost moments usually happen when we override the natural instincts of our flow with fears or defense mechanisms. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John:  This reminds me of my second dream, in that your dream looks at things from an overall standpoint, in terms of how something is able and meant to be in relationship to you reaching a point where, not only are you everything, but you’re everything in a nothingness way. In other words, you’re not carrying any nuance or anything and, as a consequence, there is something more.

Well, in my dream, because I have this quality or mannerism inside of myself that needs to think that I have to figure something out, or that masculine quality instead of just that feminine greater super overallness you could call that, because now you’re able to bring in other squares to the whole that weren’t there before.

In my dream I have this sense, it’s a knowingness deep within, that I have a place where I can sit in a program that is located somewhere up more towards the front. Well, I’ve been a little bit cavalier about it, taking it for granted, and not being attentive to this place apparently, because I see myself having come to the program and, for the moment, temporarily in my opinion, I have taken a seat near the back.

Now, I feel I could go up to the front because the program hasn’t started yet, and could sit in that seat or be in that place, but everyone else is sitting now and that could be a distraction – so I feel that it’s okay to bide my time.

Well, you’re handed then a questionnaire that you fill out, that has to do with where you’re at, and so I answer the questions on the questionnaire, but there are certain questions that I have to skip and I would know those answers, and they would be automatic and easy for me, if I were in this other seat. And so I feel that because I sat in the back, I don’t need to address those other questions. I’m not going to be judged, or graded, or dealt with in relationship to that, anyway.

And so what happens is, I become acclimated to that seat in the back, and those questions, those other questions that were there are important, but I can never answer them again. They never come up again. In fact, they fall away from my ability to even remember what those answers are for those questions, because all of it falls away and disappears as if it never was.

I even find myself then, when that happens, rationalizing, based upon appearance, how it is that things are. And so at one point I had maybe a different sense of what this program was about. Now, in the back, I have the sense that I’m not missing anything, that it’s something defective, or it’s a subject matter that’s not that big a deal, or something. I have a way of dismissing it away.

And so then the question comes up: will I ever be able to get that back? Do I realize what has fallen away? And the reason all of this came up, and the reason it was like this, is because I had adopted an attitude. I was carrying a mannerism. It was that mannerism that kept me from being attentive to where I could have been, and was naturally designed to be, up in the front.

And so now that other falls away, and whatever was part of that other, which had a whole other magic to it, and it had a quality to it of a sense and a knowingness of things, more acutely defined.

In my case the deeper knowingness and the clarity of something just dropped away, without me even noticing, or realizing, that I had lost it. And I was sitting and so it was almost like I was seeing the memo and feeling a little bit of the anguish and pain of having taken on a mannerism, or a mood, or a tone, and the result of that left me in this condition. It was almost like I had done something that had set up a reverb reaction that resulted in this being the effect.

And, of course, what I wrote for a meaning is, this is what happens when a person takes a demeanor that extricates themselves from an intended result. A flatness sets in first. With that comes a veil. Before the changes are over, everything seems to accommodate where it is that you find yourself now at. It is as if the other was never intended, because the result that now is before you has become acclimated on many levels. For example, in this dream scenario, I reach the point that what was there up front for me isn’t deemed important anymore. It’s like I’ve talked myself into believing this because, without looking at the other aspects of the questionnaire in the way that one could come to know and deal with them, you naturally fill in that absenteeism space of yourself in a rationalized way.

The aspects in the questionnaire that have to do with the place that I had a sense of within, are gone, so there is no way for me to know, now, how I am or where I am in this other place. In other words, in a way for me to know what things truly are all about, because I’m off to one side. The life force energetic has rearranged itself to accommodate where it is that I now am. It’s always been there, and you can actually go beyond that life force energy apparently, and for the masculine you have a wisdom or an insight to things, and for the feminine you have this little magic thing bringing in other aspects to the good.

2worldsContinuing the theme from yesterday’s post (see The Burden), on a spiritual path we become quickened by the energy of our inner connections. At that point, it becomes an issue of maintaining that inner access, or holding that energetic space within in us, so that we become a conduit, or a change agent, or a bridge between two worlds. This enables higher energy to come through us and into manifestation – into life. This is a high aspect of being in service to something greater than ourselves. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So when you’re speeded up in the morning, or when you’re animated in a particular way where it’s like you are on adrenaline or something, and you’re just really quickened and everything is just snapping, and your husband is saying, Jiminy Christmas, what did you do, have three cups of coffee this morning, instead of one, because you’re going too fast for him?

That’s okay. That’s okay. In other words, don’t allow yourself to be chained again. Just realize that yes, you may have to figure out how to polish and temper, but don’t let go of that speed.

And learn to speak with the energetic in a way so that it doesn’t set off the denseness, the loudness, or the denseness quite so loudly. This guy that I know downstairs was trying to explain to me… In other words, he in his day was the expert around the world of a certain kind of way of operating on the head and around the mouth and all of that area.

And he would get these patients from around the world, and he would tell them like for example if they started on an antibiotic, that yes, you are going to feel good if you take it for three days, but you’re supposed to take it for seven or ten or whatever it is.

And he said the way he would try to get them to understand it is he would say, well, the antibiotic has wiped out all the women and children in the first three days, but the old guys they’re still there. They’re the harder ones to get rid of, and so you feel much better having wiped out 70% of it, but you still have that 30% and you have to take that antibiotic all the way through to get the last ones.

And the problem with those last ones, and then he explains to me how a virus works in relationship to the reproduction of the cells, and a virus reproduces and reproduces very, very quickly, and a cell it takes a while for it to reproduce. And so the mutations are more likely because of the nature of the density of things in terms of the way a virus is constantly imposing itself.

So his point being is you have to hold the energetic, you have to hold a particular quality, in order for it to be effective. And the holding of that, in this example, just take the antibiotics all the way through. Holding in this example is the recognition that your body has something imbedded in it that has a clarity to it.

And then you have the physicality of the viruses, which are everywhere, that can strip you down. And you can cater your attention into that, and it will tear you down. Or you can have yourself in a kind of energetic that is at the essence of everything, and this will help maintain a better well being for yourself.

I thought that was an interesting way of looking at it. I had never thought of that.

Ann: Boy. My goodness. That is an excellent explanation isn’t it? Wow.

John: It’s an excellent explanation. When you’re out and you’re working and you’re around somebody that is reacting to how it is in terms of the way you’re talking, and the way you’re acting, you have to be careful about this, but it’s kind of like a virus from them that’s attempting to pull you down and mutate you back into the collective.

But at the same time you can’t reject what they’re doing because, where is the masculine principle in terms of its raw energy prima materia that you have to take in and absorb and transform, which also is important for the change agent in life?

That’s running on a counter thread. What you have to do is you have to be kind of a soldier of both worlds, somehow. In other words, it’s like if something is agitating you, you don’t go into a tiff, and adopt an attitude or a mood, secretly try to backstab it, because that is not something you get away with because it’s known on an etheric level. It’s felt on an etheric level.

You have to embrace and accept it as it is, so that it can have the space, to catch up with the speed. But if you don’t like the reaction, and now you’re attempting to do something, or make a point about the reaction, some subtle hint or mannerism in your nature trying to get a dig in or something, and doing it in kind of a serendipitous way, instead of an outward way, just by a mannerism and way you carry yourself or something – that is fighting the darkness, so to speak, and intensifying it, instead of winning it over with a sweet touch.

So this is all correlated to the speed, if you think about it, and going fast inside yourself and yet, at the same time, knowing how to do this that’s more on a proximity to light, knowing how to do this, or learning how to do this, so that you’re not a wrecking machine either, because you have no right to step on anybody else, to violate their space.

So how do you do this? This is where the skill comes in, or the consciousness comes in, to know how to bring it through in such a way so that it is graspable and understandable.

Now when you’re in this vibration, you’re convinced, you have convinced yourself, that you can make this happen for them, that they will get it, because you’re drinking it, they can drink it. This is a big fallacy that one gets caught up in, and then you lose the compassion. You lose the care. You lose the graciousness.

And the next thing you know, you’re pounding and they’re fighting back, and now everybody is stabbing each others’ heart. And then the veils come in, and there is no clarity about anything.

So this is why it is said, in Sufism, to learn to talk with the energetic. When you learn to talk with the energetic, and learn to say the first thing that comes vibrationally up, you don’t sit and think about it and measure your words to make sure everything is just completely copacetic.

And so as a consequence, you can say things that aren’t exactly true even. However, what’s so interesting is, you will get taught. You are going to get taught, if it’s not true. You may get corrected.

Like for example, I used to think that the body filtered out ultraviolet and ultra infrared, and the reason why it filtered both of these two extremes of the spectrum out, was because they both had an effect upon the body that it couldn’t handle, that tore it down.

Actually, it’s they’re both filtered out, they are for different reasons. I’m right on the ultraviolet. You know it’s a transcendent energy that’s too much for the body to handle the vibration coming in. It has a radioactive quality to it.

But the reason why you filter out the infrared is, it works too much with a density and a magnetism. You don’t want to turn yourself into a rock, so to speak, or get too dense.

A person factors out the little red tends to factor out infrared because it’s working more with the iron element inside of matter – as a gravity.

And so an example of this is the MRI machine. When you go into an MRI machine it does not work very well with bones because bones are dense, and everything is frozen solid and doesn’t have the translucent quality as much as the flesh.

And so it’s better to use an MRI machine or an x-ray. MRI works by cutting, taking it in slivers and breaking the slivers down and creating an imagery that way, to see what’s going on, because the motion is more set in a bone.

An x-ray is somewhat similar, a little bit different description, but there’s something besides an MRI that takes the slivers and an MRI I guess is the full body scan. And it works with the gravity of the iron in your makeup of your being, and it is able to pull that and move that inside of the flesh, and therefore get an image of that and can see things that normally wouldn’t be visible and seeable.

That’s working with gravity. It’s reading things by the ability to attract the iron in the blood and the flesh, which is hard and can’t be quite done in something that’s bone.

And that’s why you have to take the slices of it, or you have the x-ray. The slices of it is called something else. An MRI is I think the full-body scan. I forget what they call it when you can take slice ribbons and then put it together as a picture, that is similar along the lines of how an x-ray works. That kind of density can be a little bit much for the body.

And you know people for example that look at things so anal retentively that you can’t get them to grasp a fresh idea because they have to put it within the parameters of their given. So if they had more infrared mannerism to their nature, they would be in even worse shape because they would be having to be even more retentive. That’s why there’s that parameter.

The ultraviolet principle is a principle in which the magnetism is such that it’s more than what the body can bear, and has to be filtered out, and it’s filtered out by, you might say, the atmosphere of the way manifestation is.

In other words, what I was told was it is extremely hard on a person who gets sent into outer space, because they get subjected to the radiation. To the radiation of outer space. They don’t have that quality of things that’s a gravitational field, and the way that works to keep you from being hit by all of that radiation.

And so the point is yeah, I love Star Trek and whatnot, but in reality it could never be, because you can’t be exposed to that kind of radiation without being torn to pieces. You’re protected in manifestation and earth from that which is a quality of an ultraviolet.

When you raise your consciousness, you’re developing the consciousness of the universe. You’re figuring out a way to work with the ultraviolet. At the same time you are learning how to become more grounded. You’re learning how to contend with the infrared.

And you’re learning that yes, you have your physical eyes and your physical senses and that is part of what maintains manifestation that has a certain ego quality nature effect but you can touch and feel it and it can be something viable for you to play in and to influence, kind of in a co-creator way of the will of the vibration of something that is the essence that’s in a stillness.

Yes, you can have that, and then you can have this other. And they do not look like they come together, but they’re one and the same, just in different states. Just like sound is one state, and light is another – and yet they are the same.

So you can talk about it in this scientific sense, we’ll say, or you can talk about it in just the mundane. How do you get by, waking up in the morning, you’re blessed or graced by this quality that’s going on inside of you, and that gives you an edge in a way because of this path.

It gives you an edge that enables you to cope in manners that others cannot cope because they do not have that about them.
