Posts Tagged ‘welfare in a dream’

lightbulb-moment-webAs a society, we tend to look to those people in positions of power for the answers to our problems. But intelligence doesn’t work that way; intelligence responds to need. For those with everything, the only need is to maintain what exists. The intelligence for change will come to those who need it most, because their thoughts, and energies, and intentions are focused on solving the need they face. We see this mechanism operating everywhere: the scientist who spends a life on a certain discovery, the artist who strains for the perfect expression, and the human who strives to understand what it is they have been born into. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: So I really just remember one dream and, in this dream, I seem to be rooming with a woman. We have kind of adjoining rooms, and the first room, I never really see what my room looks like that clearly, but her room is very long, and narrow, and almost like cave-like. It goes way down, and the walls kind of come up in a curved way.

And, initially, I help her clean it out, and she even has a storage area in one wall. It’s kind of like a mess. So I help get it all in order. And then kind of in the middle area, where our two rooms must adjoin, some offices get set up. And it feels like we’re some kind of an agency where we work with people. It feels like an agency somewhere that’s kind of like a cross between the police and maybe a welfare agency of some kind, that goes out and helps people.

There’s a lot of paperwork, and they’ve come up with a new system on working with the paperwork. And, at one point, a supervisor comes up and she wants to see some files that I’ve piled on the floor around my desk, with little sticky notes in them, so I can catch them up. But I realize, because they’re fairly well organized – she looks at them quickly because she wants them done a certain way – I realize they’re actually not done that way, but that she’s not looking at them enough in depth to know that.

And I also know the way that she wants them done is not really even that practical, because it feels to me like the way that the agency sets things up is they make things almost too wordy, but I don’t know that it really has any meaning to the work we’re doing. So that’s a little frustrating to me. It’s like I feel like we should be putting more resources into going out and helping the kids, or the people.

And my coworker’s been given a little bit a raise, and I go over and I suddenly see that they’ve completely redecorated her whole area. And it’s like they’ve carpeted down to the far area, which wasn’t very usable before, but they’ve carpeted right up on the walls, and the ceiling and everything, with a different kind of light-colored carpet. It actually does make the space a little more usable. But if we just expand our offices into it, that doesn’t make sense to me. It seems to me like maybe we should bring some kids in, and run some groups, or do something that has more to do with the work we’re supposed to be doing.

But I feel like they just get a little bit focused on the words, and I go into a pantry, where things have been disorganized before, and it feels like we can take the beads or something in there and even use them in some artwork on her wall now, because everything’s kind of cleaned.

And then I look at her, at one point, and I say that even though she’s supposed to be getting more money than me, I’m actually kind of having a little more take-home money because of how they did hers, how they calculate hers. Then I see she doesn’t really understand that.

And my whole feeling in the dream is there’s all these things that are being done, but I’m not sure they have much meaning.

John: The dream starts off in which you have the two parts of yourself that are disassociated. You have the part of yourself that goes into a certain kind of depth, but doesn’t know what to make out of the depth. And another part of yourself that is not connected with that.

And the hint of the dream, in terms of what the two vibrations are like, that need to come together to create a greater beingness, or wholeness, is the idea of bringing together police energy and welfare energy. And basically police energy, per se, is off because it has a certain dictum about it. And welfare energy is off because it’s all over the place, and doesn’t have a certain focus.

But when you bring the two together, the police have a focus, and the welfare has an intent; so how do you bring the two together? And so, when you bring the two together, then you also have to sanctify them. In other words, you have to accentuate the heartfulness, as well. And that’s where the beads come in, decorating with the beads, after clearing the space. But you have to bring the two together.

And so the theme of the dreaming last night was that of trying to have a kind of intertwining with things that are in the environment that might, and could, be even a seeming unholy alliance, but have to come together in some sense in order for there to be a wholeness. These are things that would not, and do not, typically correlate or come together, per se, because they naturally carry a slightly different energetic motif, that is effective in the slant that each of them has, up to a point, but that point is limited. That point does not have any significant depth to it.

That point for each is, in one instance, an unknowable clutter, and, in another instance, it is just a short sightedness. And the coming together creates a pulling together of what a police energy intent, which is meant to serve the public wholeness and good, but tends to be bifurcated in its way. And the welfare energy, which tends to be something that is heartful, but doesn’t have the developed depth to be able to carry something through in a way that works with a world that is essentially, at its core, kind of askew. The pulling of the two together enhanced something as a greater whole. That’s what you were doing there.

So the nature of understanding a dream like that is to try to look at two things that, in and of themselves, are actually a bit ridiculous, and how, as they come together, they make something that is more whole. They take something that is dismissible, and disregardable, and make it potent. It then has a potent meaningfulness.

Because also the theme of the dreaming has to do with there are all these little aspects of things, that exist out there, that are dismissed, in terms of the general overall schematic, because we live in an outer sector way of looking at things in which there are certain things that seem to dictate – in terms of how their power and their control is. And it’s a type of power and control, for all intents and purposes, when viewed from the outer, predominate. And so when you have the charity, or welfare side, of yourself, that’s operating kind of in another channel off grid.

When you have the police side of yourself, that’s a tool that falls under the beck and control of the powers that be, and so it never really is able to do its job in its highest way, or order. It actually becomes a pawn that’s misused against others. And so, when you put the two together, and you add the heartfulness in from the cleaning up of the process, you take what is last and you make it first.

It’s just like the expression that, in the end, the meek shall inherit the Earth. And that makes no sense because when you look at things you can see what predominates in society, in terms of making things happen as a power and control. You would conclude, based upon the appearances of the outer, that there is a way that something gets pulled together, in terms of its presence and power, that is able to then dictate what unfolds as far as future consequences.

But that is not what is meant to ultimately happen. That actually is the furthest away from any kind of breakthrough. The breakthrough comes from that which is considered in dire straights, that sees itself subjugated, that sees itself victimized. It is out of that that there is a need that arises, and that need is what makes something take and shift, eventually, into something so, so, much more. And that’s what makes a human being so really, really, really powerful.

And that’s why a teacher comes to recognize that, even though they’re working with students that are all misaligned, that they’re actually working with something that is truly the seed of power, in terms of all that there is, because it is that quality that inherits everything, that rises up and inherits everything.

Appearances appear otherwise. In relationship to a student on a spiritual path, it’s to the teacher. And from the teacher, it is to the student that is important. And to the average person who exists in life, it’s to the powers that be that one has to figure out how to contend or cope, or make due, or coexist somehow. And, in terms of the actual, no, it’s to the most distressed, and the weakest.

It’s the one’s that are in the greatest hardship. That’s where the actual transitioning is possible. It’s not possible in terms of the enhancement of the top. It’s not a trickle down. Nothing trickles down. Nothing trickles up to something like that. It only arises as an awakening from the depth of something that is able to render forth, and let go, and thus be part of an overall. That which exalts itself can never find itself.
