Posts Tagged ‘we are all the characters in our dreams’

How does our system communicate with us? When we are awake, we might have an intuition, or sometimes we’ll have a flash of insight, and, when we are asleep, we have our dreams that show us playing the many parts of a movie up on the big screen of our unconscious. And, in these roles, part of us can be bored, while another part of us is so far behind that what bores one aspect is fascinating to it. The human is designed to be a unity, and work seamlessly with itself. These subtle disconnects, and inner alienations, can be healed to a great degree by our conscious awareness that they exist.

John: So, because this had to do with having to catch up with something anew, in the meditation dream, I noticed that the breath was causing everyone I knew to catch up with and see a deeper in-depthness in manifestation about themselves. But that was for them. 

In other words, what I’m describing here is actually myself coming to catch up with certain things that I’m meant to be able to catch up with in this lifetime, that are natural. And so in the meditation dream, it’s from the breath that I’m realizing that things can be caught up with, but it’s not a big surprise to me. There’s some other me that is watching, and it’s a big surprise probably to them, and it’s keeping life interesting for them. 

But for me, as I’m listening to people describe their awareness, I notice that everything they say is about the breath and its reflectiveness in manifestation. And that reflectiveness and that way in manifestation is something I already know. I also notice that, because I already know all of this, it carries a kind of a sense of ordinariness, so I’m a little bored and something more is needed. 

Well, in terms of the way things have been going, I’ve been looking outwardly and noticing that, in terms of the fact that it doesn’t go anywhere anew for me. But, when it’s my turn, the ordinariness about the general overall observations of awareness, that are notable in the breath, that I understand and find satisfy most dynamics in terms of human beings, I notice that suddenly there’s something more that beckons to my surprise. It’s just like a lightbulb moment, or a sudden shift, or shock, where I see a whole new world and life revealed in the breath that I hadn’t noticed before. 

So I find myself describing this breath of manifestation in terms of an awareness that I have found in the breath, as well. And it is something that no one has seen before in terms of all the others who are excited about the breakthroughs that they had that brought them up to a particular point, but for me what’s really going on is all of this – because everything is me – was it brought me up to a particular point and now there is a newfound use and awareness in terms of what is going on in manifestation that’s basically a newfound profoundness. 

So what I am talking about is a way of being, not heretofore revealed, which has suddenly come through me into manifestation. And, in doing so, it’s kind of given into life for the first time, this being an awareness about life no one had noticed before, which means I hadn’t noticed before. Because I keep talking about it in the past tense, or secondary tense, but everything in the dream is about me.

When we are estranged from aspects of our inner lives, their appearance can seem to us to be a foreign invasion. In dreams we may see them as aliens from another planet, as strangers in our midst, or simply as people visiting from somewhere else – it all depends on the level of our alienation from this inner aspect. As usual, we are trying to bring these foreigners into our world, not reject them. Such dreams are offering us an opportunity to incorporate them into our personal composite. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I lost my earlier longer dream, but, in my second dream, I seem to be almost like at a waystation in the middle of nowhere. For me it’s outdoors, it’s a little maybe gas station or place where people come and get hay or stuff – one of those little places people stop as they come and go somewhere else. 

And I’m observing the workers there, and most of them seem like they’re Russian, and because they’re Russian or something like that everybody kind of puts up with them. And I notice that there’s one young man that a young lady likes, and I go to observe further and I even go over to help. It’s like somebody’s unwrapping a bale of hay or something. So I’m going over and I’m helping them pull some of the wire off. Then I notice it gets down to a barbed wire or something I don’t know how to remove. 

But, as I get closer, I realize that everybody’s kind of hiding that the guy that this gal likes isn’t really Russian, he’s probably Hispanic. And that if people thought he was an illegal or something they wouldn’t tolerate him being there. So maybe the Russians are hiding his nationality so that people will let him be there. And I’m just observing all this, and I think that was when I woke up.

John: What we did last night is we took a particular schematic of a greater whole, we drilled into a particular schematic. If you put your attention strictly on this schematic, you might miss the greater whole.

The schematic had to do with the fact that there is, in the collective overall, there are specific particular traits that are pent up within the psyche of a person’s being. In other words, it’s like there’s a greater incarnated possibility, and that greater overall incarnated possibility has qualities that are bouncing around inside that are kind of specific in orientation. 

For example, we carry inside of ourselves all of these different levels, the shamanistic level, the Jinn level, the angelic level, and one can take and have dreams about each of those specifically. One can also have a dream, instead of it being about maybe something that’s labeled like that, one can have a dream in which there is a distinct part of oneself that predominates. It doesn’t necessarily have to be what one would consider a defined positive part, either, it could be a part that we might even consider a type of negative part that comes out and causes itself to live through us. 

And yet, it is just a part, it’s just a component, that there is a greater general overall beingness that includes the various qualities positive and negative. We’re fortunate if we come to recognize and realize that it’s that way, because there are times when we might go off in some irregular fashion and come to think that we’re doing something that is foreign, really foreign, to our nature, and very misaligned or something. 

But some of these parts inside of our self are there and serve, in a peculiar way, a useful function even though they might be considered lower self-characteristics and traits, they still make up the greater design of who we are.

Like what you’re doing there is you have something that you don’t know quite what to make out of, that’s a part of you, let’s say it’s the Russian influence, and so you already are dubious towards something like that. And yet, at the same time, then, when you look at that a little more closely you might have even more reason to question or challenge them because they are also hiding something else. 

Well, that’s the nature of our intolerance mannerisms, too, that are inside of our nature. If we’re intolerant, we’re intolerant usually for a defense purpose reason that has to do with maybe being overwhelmed in some way, shape, or form that causes us to develop that as a way of coping or something. Behind that it generally hides something, maybe along the way it’s hard to tell necessarily what is good and what is bad because we have our connotations. 

You could have your connotation about the Russians, and yet what might be housed there, by the Russians, you come to realize is something interesting that you need to catch up with without the attitude or motif assigned to it. 

So we have all of this, the tendency is when we see some of these parts that we don’t like, we’re kind of oriented to the idea that we need to work on challenging our nafs, or our lower-self nature, or our negative nature. Yes, it’s true, we need to do that and recognize a lot of that has to be set aside, but you’ve got to be careful in terms of not estranging ourselves and becoming too pure or too something to where we don’t realize that that raw energy that we espouse, or exterminate, is still pointing to something so much more inside of ourselves. 

So we’re this tremendous composite of things. There are parts of that composite that we can idealize, and there are other parts that we can consider horrible. And yet even those parts that are considered horrible have a flip side to them, they serve a purpose. Everything is taken into account in the compositeness of life, and that those parts that we might deem or treat as something to abhor, in a different schematic of evaluation we might come to see that there’s something so much more about that, and about us, when we let go of our attitudes.

In this third dream of a single night, we have reached the point of the internal review where the dreamer is speaking to himself. We are all the characters in our dreams, and here we see a message being sent to the “one in charge” that things cannot continue in this direction. Sensible decisions need to be made, and corrective actions need to be taken. These are the inner conversations we have that help us evolve and refine as we go – and shows us how our dreams are always trying to help. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: Then, I had one last dream, we already did this one. So, in the very last dream, a person is proposing a program that benefits the education system at a high school. And, of course, they’re standing there, and they’re proposing it, and I’m standing on one side. 

And then there’s the principal. The principal’s kind of a dark-looking guy, meaning he has a dark energy, he’s taking everything with a grain of salt. And he speaks out and he says he doesn’t agree with these proposed changes. In other words, where’s the money going to come from and everything else? 

And so, without hesitation, I butt into the conversation that I overhear and I say – otherwise it’s in a stalemate – and I say that this is important or the school program will go really backwards. This is needed to maintain what this high school is all about. You have to do it. And just know that you’re going to get the respect that you need from the public to make sure that it’s properly funded, or whatever has to happen. To not do so is to go backwards and have a failed system. 

There is the outer, and then there is the heart. It is easy to see when the head (outer) dictates and not the heart as there is a darkness. The high school principal caught up in the minutiae of things had a dark demeanor, and to change that is why I interceded.

I was appalled. Not that my approach is the way to do it, but the dark demeanor couldn’t continue as a position because that would create more and more outer reflective in this very same way. It would destroy the high school; he’s in charge of this. It would contribute to the trend of tearing it down.
