Today we continue our look at the dreams Jeane described in The Unawakened.
John: So, the first dream began in a dark and desolate place, with you driving around in circles, not getting anywhere. In the second image we see that something has awakened, which is depicted as the baby, and you can either get closer to that or not.
We humans have that freedom of choice. This image is showing that, imbedded deep within you, an aspect of you knows that there’s something more to life than the surface reality. And something has awakened that knowing. Then, the question becomes, will you respond to it, i.e., will you keep this newborn baby?
Humans aren’t required to respond to the call of Creation. If we were, we’d be no better off than programmed robots. So we are given the right to choose to be a part of what is ongoing, or not. In the dream, you’re wrestling with this decision.
Interestingly, in the first image you were driving in circles in a dark landscape, which depicts a robotic life as well. In trying to decide, you begin to deal with a person who is like a robot, assembled of different parts and who needs to be put back together, right?
Jeane: He’s recently been put back together and I’m helping to stabilize things.
John: This deeper part of you has awakened to the fact that the situation around you is not what it appears – it’s a wholeness, not a separation. You realize that you’ve lost a natural connection, so you’re trying to use your limited faculties, plus this quality of the heart that you’ve reached, in order to sort things out, in order to stabilize something or bring something back to life.
So, you’re clawing your way back through the illusion that, in and of itself, is like something that’s desolate and dark, in which you had few faculties with which to deal with it. You were living a robotic-type life.
Suddenly you developed some faculties of an aliveness within, and from that aliveness you’ve come to have realizations that can regain wholeness from separation. You’re on the verge of turning the mechanical man back into a human being (getting him dressed and ready for the outside world). That’s what happens when we choose to honor our human purpose in life: we shift from a robotic, animal-level existence, up to a true human existence.
Of course, that’s where the dream stops. But, if you continue this whole process, you’ll come to link up with an energetic flow that’s behind everything that exists.
It’s the flow that’s real, and in connecting to it, you begin to find out who you really are. I suppose you’re given this opportunity as a way to see just how miserable it is when you don’t have this connection to the aliveness in all of life.
When it’s awakened and alive, then everything can be understood for how it is, as opposed to it being dark and cold as an image that’s devoid of any inner meaning. But you’ve found the depth of the inner meaning and from that you’re able to hear and to listen to that which is meant to be, or to that which is real.
You could say that this is a dream that points out that you’re more than what you think you are. At one point in time you may not have been aware that you had this inner connection and linkage to all that there is, from which you then could nurture or give birth or create or bring about changes in life.
You learn to find the bits and pieces of what is real, you learn to sense the inflections, the hints. To begin with they’re just little bitty inflections and little bitty insights, little flashes or something that hits, because the rest of the time the senses kind of keep you disoriented in terms of an identification with the outer.
Of course, if all you’re capable of doing is identifying yourself in the outer world and you have none of this other awakened inside, i.e., you choose to give up the baby, you’d be back to the very beginning in which something is inanimate in terms of its realness; it’s desolate and dark.
Isn’t that an interesting dream?
Essentially what your dream is telling you is that if we don’t have that cognition inside, how is it possible for us to really understand anything? Otherwise, we just identify with something that’s empty and devoid of meaning.
Unfortunately, this is kind of true for most people out there in life, although they usually have some inkling that there’s something more and, from this something more, they rally around religions and whatnot.
But they do so in a way that has the meaningfulness of the religion conceptualized, and they can actually become dangerous because, if you throw something at them that disorients them from their concepts, they’ll have to fight. They’ll have to crusade. They’ll have to do something to maintain their power and control over their concepts.
You’ve got people like that, who have such a faint, faint echo of light inside them, but that’s the best that they can get. In your particular case though, this has taken on an aliveness so you’re able to work with the whole of things, because of this ability to link to this part deep inside, and that’s a pretty profound step to take.
