Whenever I'm in a situation in my life that is problematic, the
only thing I can take refuge in is to "follow the dreaming."
By this I mean seeing my life experience as a dream and letting
it teach me how to interpret it.
More and more of the people in my groups are waking up to how
we are all, moment by moment, dreaming up our universe. Waking
up to this process transforms our situation from being potentially
separative and problematic to one that is an opportunity for awakening,
chock full of blessings and teachings. This is particularly true
of moments when shadow energies get constellated in the field,
as these moments are embraced and realized to be the very friction
we need to create more light. By following the dreaming together,
consciousness, which is the mystical light which waters our soul,
literally gets created in the dreamfield. More consciousness being
created means that the mass dream we share becomes lighter and
more light filled. We have found the galactic portal through hyperspace
into a more rarified and grace-filled dimension of life. We discover
how we can be with each other in a way that lightens both our
individual and collective loads. This is genuine spiritual community.
and more of us are realizing that we can learn the art of dreaming
together, that we can have realizations by putting our dreaming
together that we couldn't have by our own seemingly isolated selves.
We discover that there is a way of hanging out, of commune-icating,
of dialoguing, of being together that activates and supports our
mutual awakening process. Intrinsic to the art of dreaming is
to be able, in a mutually empowering way, to attract and "dream
up" seemingly other awakened dreamers so as to mutually support
each otherís dreaming. When people create a new consensus by being
together in the present moment with the awareness that we are
not only not separate from each other, but are moment by moment
mutually dreaming each other up, a dreamfield literally gets conjured
up that is particularly lubricated for healing and awakening.
is like a group of seemingly separate beings waking up together
to the true nature of our situation, which is that we are not
separate but contained in a deeper, higher dimensional being.
It is like having an instantaneous, collective phase shift and
being reborn into a more graceful, harmonious and coherent identity
pattern where we can resonate as one. We recognize and remember
how to hook up and get in phase with each other on the higher
vibrational frequency called love, which knows no separation.
In a truly evolutionary act, we collectively experience a quantum
shift outside of time, discovering together that we can mutually
co-operate and co-llaborate in a way where we can dream a dream
in synch with the truth of our nature as love. We begin to touch
and embody our God-given gifts of reality co-creation and universe
formation. Stepping out of the realm of abstract ideas, we begin
to have the astonishing realization that we can make our mutual
dream based on the truth of love incarnate and materialize as
our life itself.
