It might be more useful to always look to understand how things are connected, and how they interact with other things, and, in doing so, we can see that to separate any one thing out is to lose the perspective we need to work with it and change it. Bringing everything together might be a better model for the future, as opposed to making infinite distinctions.

Jeane: I just remember my last dream. In this dream, I seem to be working someplace where we work and then we kind of go up a level, and go into a room, an open room, but it’s just up a few feet from the rest of the room that’s like a dining room. We all sit around a rectangular table.

When we sit around the table, initially, there seems to be a lot of tensions going on. And then one of the young women there reveals that she’s gay. And, after a few minutes, it’s like another young woman there, who I think is like the daughter of somebody who owns this place, suddenly comes to the realization that she’s gay, too.

And, during all of this, it’s like some stuff got spilled on the table. And she’s wondering if this is us being upset with her – the reason things got spilled or mixed around. And I make a comment that, no, it’s about the tension from everybody trying to not reveal what was so, as opposed to the upset being about what has been revealed. Although I realized that her father, who’s not there, that maybe he’s one of the owners of the restaurants or something, might have trouble with the whole issue, particularly because she’s kind of taken time from when she should be working right now to stay at the table because she wants to sort this out with all of us sitting there.

At the same time, I’m realizing that, whereas with the other girl, she was very aware, with this one, who’s her close friend, this is more of just like a revelation to her, too, and that we need to take a few minutes to kind of reassure her. At the same time this is causing some tension because she’s supposed to be back at work. That was the dream.

John: What you have to do with this dream is you have to take out the action of the appearance of the dream and look at the transition, vibrationally, that is behind what is a sequence of outer appearances, or mannerisms.

And when you do, you realize that what you’re perceiving, and what you’re seeing in front of you, is a far cry from the way that there is this inner state that is spinning you. It’s like, can you catch up with how this just spins you?

You can take and you can look at and have an epiphany over here, of an insight. And then all of a sudden that leads to another epiphany over there as an insight. And you can see that this epiphany of an insight is different than the depth of the epiphany of the insight over here. And so you could easily have a sense as to how this to that and how that works, as an importance and as a flow, or you can suddenly drop even that spaciousness of pulling those two together, you can even drop that spaciousness and fall into the recognition that the whole thing is being spun.

And that, in the spinning of this over here, and that over there, you end up with something that just melts together, where something gets spun and all of a sudden it changes. This is what this is like, only its on a vibrational level. And that you could take and notice, you have the recognition inside of yourself that it’s more than this and that, and then all it requires, then, is another little letting go kind of subtle drop.

And you’re able to have those two areas, those two places in which there is some question, or bifurcation, or nuance, or aspect in terms of reaching between this and that, it just spins. And the whole thing becomes one orientation, not an orientation over here that is kind of interesting, and an orientation over there that’s more profound, and that you sort out this which is interesting from that which is profound to come up with the differences to why this is to that and that is to that, as if you’re able to schematicize the unfoldment.

Instead, rather than trying to steer, or schematicize, or to control, or to have a piece of the way you hold on to the unfoldment, as if holding on to the unfoldment is where it’s at. You just suddenly allow yourself to be spun. And then when you’re spun, it’s like you’re spun into something. And it’s no longer visible in the form that it had been – and goes into something else.

As it’s spun, all the features fall away, and it becomes something else that is just there; but no features anymore. They get spun out of it. That’s the vibration behind what you’re dreaming, that you suddenly catch, or fall into, in one fell swoop. If you catch up with it, if you feel it, if it comes across in a way that is still having to sort something out, or to recognize the distinction between this place and that place, then you’re not really quite letting go. You’re still trying to put the whole thing into your own personal cognition.

Pico Iyer

When speaking of an inner stillness, it may seem hard to imagine how we might get through a busy airport in that state, or manage any stressful situation. Yet if we understand the laws of energy, we will see that when we add our intense energy to an already intense situation, we are actually feeding the intensity. Just as when we get into an argument with someone, the back and forth feeds the original spark and makes it worse. So when we remain in a stillness, we observe the energies of other things, rather than feed those energies. Said another way, why would we want to feed the things that make us stressed out? (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

John: So, in the meditation dream, I find myself holding off from responding to an issue in which there is an invoking of an outer response. In other words, it’s an outer trying to get my attention. And so I’m holding off responding to it. And I hold out because I know, deep inside, that the response cannot be an in-sync reply. In other words, you can’t respond to the outer, reflections cannot meet reflections. 

So I hold back and do not reciprocate, outwardly, because there’s something inside of me, and

I consider it like the soul, or something, which is refusing to move and wants to just stay still. It won’t buy into this outer that is trying to grab my attention. So I find myself surrendered to the inner stillness. In other words, I just can’t bite; that motion just doesn’t grab me. 

And so what does that mean? Does it mean that the outer vibrations are somehow or another absorbed by the stillness, or into the heart, or somehow? And that my mind, that normally buys into the outer reflections, just cannot do it? In other words, there’s something that has gotten more meaningful in terms of staying still with a more all-consuming heartfulness. 

So that causes me to wonder: what is this stillness? And I come to ponder it as relating to a plane of the soul, which is where surrender and non-being come together, and where everything is absorbed. The outer is absorbed by this encompassing heart, or something. In other words, the reflections aren’t separate; the reflections can all be taken within. And so, in other words, there’s always going to be reflections, but the reflections you don’t take them with you in bizarreness, the reflections stay as manifestation, still in terms of the degree to which something has to act out vibrationally with images. 

And you’re always noting the degree of true stillness by looking at the greater teacher of the outer, that is manifestation, but you don’t try to change the outer in order to get to the inner. Such a mindset, in which the outer vibratoriness and corresponding images are something that you can bring with you into the plane of the soul. It just isn’t so; because they are reflections they veil the heart from the inner.

So what happened is, in my meditation dream, I was able to not reciprocally react, because I was on the plane of the universal soul where stillness is natural. Now, the alternative to that, of course, is an outer reflective in which the senses portray the reflective physical and the result, then, of something like that is kind of an ego orientation floundering as manifestation. In other words, playing out the vibrations in the images – because vibrations and images are correlated. Or, to put it another way, manifestation exists as an outer reflection in which vibrations correspond to created images. 

And so this has caused me to notice a psychic illusion. To visualize within an outer future unfoldment involves the taking of a vibratory energetic from the stillness into physical manifestation, and doing it, this time, in which you stop time, as if irrelevant. In other words, manifestation is a conditional reflection involving time and vibration, which densed down becomes physical space. 

So psychic inflections are a deviation in one of two ways in terms of the stillness. They are a deviation in that you can have a psychic quality in which you transcend time, so that you can come to see things backwards and forwards and up and about. That’s a psychic trait. 

Or you can take and you could still be buying into time, but you can get rid of vibrations, in which case, if you can get rid of the vibrations that then manifest into something physical, because they constellate as something dense in the outer, if you get rid of the vibrations that have their way of having to live something through in a reflective denseness, then you can do things like transport or move objects. In other words, you can transcend space. So, psychic abilities have to do with playing on the edges of time and space that are important as foundational points to a vibrational imaged manifestation.

Everything sleeps. It’s a fundamental process of the universe. But it’s not just to recharge our “batteries” for a new day, although that is a critical aspect of it. But it is also a cleaning and healing process that lets us clean and store what we want from the day, which allows us to start the new day in a tidy state. It can also provide healing in the sense of connections made, and unconscious understandings made conscious, providing a settlement and ability to repair in the deepest levels of a person, in body and in soul. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I don’t really remember dreaming much last night, except it felt like whatever was going on I had to be still, or I was watching the breath, or I was feeling observed. I don’t know which it was. I couldn’t pull a dream out around it.

John: It sounds like, whatever you were doing, there was still something holding your attention, in some sort of way, so that something else couldn’t quite get there, or didn’t quite come through.

For the longest time that’s what we do, is we have our ideas on how to hold a particular space. We have our ideas on what to feel, even when we meditate, what we think we need to feel. We don’t know how to simply let go because whatever it is that we know how to feel, is not what it’s about.

And so you have to somehow or another shift away from all of that in order to start to have an inkling of yourself in an overall, intertwined whole. I have distinct memories of years and years and years of trying to take and have a sense of how to access what the heart needs to feel, in my opinion, and have had what seems to be like experiences there, and can get quickened in that area, but that doesn’t necessarily go anywhere in terms of this intertwined connection because there’s still something in the way in terms of how it is that I am identifying.

And I have to drop all of that. And I don’t know how to say, or explain, or to tell anyone how they do that. Whenever I hear any notion, that gets in the way. Like if I were to just, say, listen to the ringing in my ears, that could get in the way if I listen too intently.

But if somehow or another it’s like a knockout punch, then something more can happen. Or it can be that one is shifted to a place, and it has nothing necessarily to do with having to listen to the ringing of the ears, it just is meant to happen now.

The shift has to be such that it takes one outside of the ordinary day-to-day trance that they’ve been in. And what helps to facilitate this shift is a quality of rejoicing, or something inside of one’s self, or balance, or sense of a greater dimensionality, or at ease, in other words the ability to break out of a contracted state – knowing full well what contraction feels like. And also knowing full well what expansion feels like – that can take you off the ground.

In other words, somehow or another knowing how to do this sort of thing with a certain quality in which the breath isn’t in some sort of another kind of disarray, either in a disarray from the standpoint that it’s too contracted and you’re feeling hurt, or disarray in which you’re too much into some sort of feeling good sensation that you’re trying to sustain.

But when you’re in a natural overallness, then it becomes interesting and you walk around, for no reason in particular, and find yourself doing that, that is when, if there’s any time that I could think of when you are closer to something more real, that would be the time. But whether that’s important in terms of the dreaming process, or not, is not necessarily so.

I guess it is still more dependent upon your ability to somehow or another drop something, not carry something in a malingering way. And when you’re able to do that, then the various states of whatever it is that can kind of try to keep noodling you along, sneak in, and you find yourself up to a limit where you’re still in a deviated capacity and that becomes what you look at, and what you go through, in terms of the theme of the dreaming for that night.

Because when you go into the inner reflective – and it’s reflective, as well – but it’s a kind of reflective that can give you a chance to actually go a little bit behind that reflective more than you can usually in the outer and, in doing so, you are using what is designed as a process for healing purposes that has always been designed this way for the human being. That’s why sleep rejuvenates, but sleep can be more than that. It can rejuvenate in an amnesic way, just with the physical in terms of its tiredness, but it can also rejuvenate from the standpoint of the greater dimensions of the soul of one’s self, that is also tired, in terms of the fact that it is confined to the human body.

And if you can get to a point of letting go to the point where you can address that kind of tiredness, and let go of that kind of tiredness, in this sleep process that is designed to heal – that’s when you then come to know other levels of yourself.
