Re: Ask for Ass-Kicking and You Shall Receiveth

Again I didn't ask for this one, but then I guess HSs don't require permission to kick us up the ass.

This initially seemed to be a regular 'nonsense' dream that suddenly turned lucid in a weird way. While with a friend from years ago I suddenly noticed he was dressed up like a dog's dinner in a ridiculous pin-striped suit. I jokingly asked 'What're you prancing around in that for, you tit?' Apparently, he wasn't bothered looking like an 80's Yuppie and just laughed my comment off. Then, I began using telekinetic powers to float a cup in mid air, just above my hands. I span it around a few times and then it suddenly vanished - along with my friend - and I then saw a large 'etheric disk' in front of me that was suspended in mid air. It was around the size of a large metal shield as used by soldiers of old and it seemed to be made of circles of colour that began in the centre and spread outwards. In between the circles was 'thin air,' meaning the shield was see-through. The circles consisted of different colours that were either purple, dark blue, or yellow. I became lucid at this point and was able to move my hand into and through the shape, before then seeing a tennis ball-sized orb of sky-blue in the centre which I was able to reach into and grab a hold of. I pulled my hand back slightly while still holding onto it, and it stretched like a really soft piece of blue-tac. I was thrilled to suddenly have 'etheric vision, before it dawned on me I was luicid dreaming

Suit:

'Dreaming that you are wearing a suit, indicates that you want to be acknowledged and recognized for your abilities and skills. You do not want your power to go unnoticed.

Cup:

'Seeing a cup in your dream, represents nurturance and the womb. The cup may also signify healing, rejuvenation, and healing. Alternatively, it indicates a transcendence into a realm of higher consciousness.'

Telekinesis: 'Dreaming that you are telekinetic, represents a higher level of awareness and consciousness. You are not utilizing your full potential and need to start putting your stored energy levels and mental abilities to use. In other words, your dream may imply that you need to put your thoughts into action. For some, dreams of telekinetic powers may indicate your latent paranormal abilities.

I dunno man, I reckon that suit-definition bit is a bit harsh. I don't consciously try to draw attention to myself, not that I have any so-called abilities or skills that mark me out as different to anyone else. We've all got stuff locked up in there that can be accessed when the time is right, so who's better than anyone else? I take on board the issue about needing to apply stuff I grok/learn/am shown by way of interesting dreams, instead of just 'showing it off' via dream-related posts. I have been conscious of slacking just lately due to a sudden spike in external distractions around me these past few weeks.

I guess the removal of the suit and cup before seieng the shield and reaching for the blue orb, is about how when mental distractions are removed then we can access the Higher within in. In addition to the blond woman, I've often seen the HS as electric blue.

Re: Ask for Ass-Kicking and You Shall Receiveth

More a case of guidance in this instance, I suspect.

I dreamed for what felt like ages of varying scenes from my earlier years where I was giving in to temptation to indulge in 'sins' of passion - for want of a better word. This included sneaking into the newsagent's with mates and trying to have a flick through the porno mags before the shop assistant copped us. After lots of similar scenes of 'temptation' I was back at home (the family home I grew up in) in the front room, and after briefly stroking a friendly ginger cat (which wasn't the family cat in real life) I saw my mom, and next to her was a blond lady aged approx 60 who produced  an embroidered white shawl, which she then placed on the dining room table. As she did so my mom commented 'That used to belong to Spinoza and cost £5,000.'

I'm no student of philosophy and so despite being aware of the dude concerned I'm non-the-wiser when it comes to his work. I looked him up and found some interesting points in his writings, including rejection of traditional views concerning a monotheistic god as a separate entity existing 'outside' of its creation - a stance which apparently went down lik a lead balloon within his Jewish environment, and instead he saw god as everything, and everything as god, at least in terms of the underlying essence from which all is 'created.' He also appeared to dismiss dualism due to the aforementioned common origin of all. All of that sounds reasonable when framed in the context of Original Creative Source and of our being individuated fragments of it, but then I read how he was adamant that free will is non-existent and as such all is deterministic. 'Complete bollocks!' I thought... but upon reading further he seemed to say (at least according to my bog-eyed understanding at 2AM)  that despite our thinking we have free will, we are chained to making the same 'wrong' choices for as long as we fail to know the essence of the underpinning drive/passions which compel us to make those choices, and that ultimately, to truly know the essence is to know 'god' - which is all - and this is what enables true freedom. 

If my understanding is correct - and anyone who does know his work is welcome to slap me down and school me - then I think this ties into the axiom 'Know thyself' and therefore in order to truly transcend our shadow sides and attain the spiritual freewill we seek, we have to achieve Gnosis - which is itself a simultaneous knowing of ourselves as the divine essence, and of it as us. I still don't like his assertion that we have no freewill because surely the whole point of evolving is to exercise choice in whether we align with higher or lower, but perhaps true, unfettered freewill, can only be experienced once the Black Iron Prison has been transcended.

Also, since our corrupted-demiurge matrix reality appears to be based on the laws of determinism, then in that sense as long as we're subject to its constraints we ARE living in a deterministic mode, whereas when we consciously align ourselves with the higher laws of positive synchronicity then we're using our free'will' creation to increasingly live in a transcendent state - one which brings us ever closer to  truly 'knowing' the divinity which is an intrinsic part of our Being.

This does seem a long-winded way to get the point across, but then it's also true that the process of filtering through the core elements of his work involved simultaneous introspection on my part, and especially regards to trying to understand how there is a 'bigger picture' behind my own 'shadows.'

The part about the shawl (a gift of advice?) costing £5000? Not sure about that: maybe it's about the high 'value' of '5'D-oriented approaches, or 5 corresponding to the letter E may be about Spinoza's relevant work being entitled Ethics. Dunno, got me kind of stumped there :S

'Only in the thorough comprehension of the axiom
"Know thyself" will come that understanding that
enables man to wield the law and know the inner
working of the system from the center to the
periphery. By the proving therefore of the human detail, we
lay the ground for the acceptance of the cosmic,
solar and planetary knowledge. What is proven
true on the small scale opens the door for the
understanding of that which exists on a larger
scale. "Man, know thyself" is a potent key to the knowledge of Deity and to the workings of
divinity.'

[...] However, for
the cat lover, cats means an independent spirit,
feminine sexuality, creativity, and power.' - nurture thy inner cat...

Maybe it is reflective of your SELF worth? And it being white resembling purity.. perhaps like a reminder that you are still pure of spirit & highly spiritually valued despite having typical human urges/temptations/whatever.

Nice thinking there Molly, I think I'll go with that one wink

Re: Ask for Ass-Kicking and You Shall Receiveth

Another one I didn't ask for, but I suspect this hoof up the derriere is quite timely.

While with some mates from back in my teens, I walked into a nightclub that was playing some dark, gothic, techno-thrash music, and while my friends looked the part in their black T-shirts and ripped jeans, I'd made the mistake of turning up in sensible trousers and a skiing-type winter coat. I stuck out like a sore thumb and so quickly shuffled across the dance area while hoping no-one would see me, but as I got to the DJ area a young woman commented 'nice coat' - and not without a hint of sarcasm. (This did actually happen once when we all went to one such gig and as I was only 15, my mom, with the best of intentions, dressed me up in smart, brown, corduroy trousers and a brown and white striped shirt - plus brown suede shoes to boot. Everyone in there looked like something out of Michael Jackson's Thriller video, and then I walked in dressed like a librarian.)

I removed my coat and then got talking to a blond bloke who looked more like a regular townie from the present era, and I realized I was dressed in pretty much the same fashion. I gathered he was one of the DJs and that he wasn't too impressed with the music, but he also told me that the club upstairs was playing some hardcore rave/techno. I don't mind that type of music but generally go for something a little more mellow, and I gathered this guy felt the same way as he muttered something about how it was too extreme. He began showing me the mixing deck and explaining how the whole thing worked, only it wasn't a regular DJ-ing set-up and instead consisted of a large touch-screen display that was mounted on a wall. He began to flick through 'pages' of icons, each of which represented a particular techno track. He explained that it was simply a case of touching an icon I wanted and then the tune it represented would be uploaded onto the system ready to play when the next set started. He invited me to have a go and although it looked simple, I was hesitant at first because it was something new and I didn't want to screw it up (what with it being a live set), but then decided it would be good to have a crack and learn something new. As I scanned the first page of icons I saw there were six to choose from, and upon flicking to the next page found an additional sixteen; the tracks I chose needed to be stored in folders that came under letters of the alphabet, with the first track to be played being stored under 'A', and so on... The man began to coach me and as my finger hovered over an icon ready to preview the track, he told me how any that didn't play or sounded distorted needed to be put into the folder named 'J.' He was most emphatic about that point. He went on to advise me that the crowd would appreciate tracks that came from the Bristol area, and I immediately thought of some 'Trip-Hop' bands from that region which were popular back in the 90's.

I was mid-way through my selection and about to choose another Bristol-related tune, when he told me, 'That one normally gets played at the end of their live gigs; if you play it halfway through this set the crowd will kill you.' I realised this particular track lasted around fifteen minutes and was a slow, 'wind-down' number that would completely deflate the atmosphere if I stuck it in the middle of the playlist.



The first thing I did upon looking into the dream was to search for a metaphysics-related meaning for the letter J:

The letter J —
Positive: Truthful. Helpful. Intelligent. Well-meaning. Reliable. Clever.
Negative: Lazy.


From http://affinitynumerology.com/using-num … anings.php

I then went to the Wikipedia page for Bristol and found the following:

- The motto on the city's coat-of-arms is: 'Virtute et Industria (By Virtue and Industry).

- 'Iron Age hill forts and Roman villas were built in the area around the junction of the Rivers Frome and Avon, and it became known as Brycgstow (Old English "the place at the bridge") around the beginning of the 11th century.'

(From Hyperdictionary.com: 'Dreaming that you are crossing a bridge means an important decision or a critical junction in your life. This decision will prove to be a positive change with prosperity and wealth in the horizon. Bridges represent a transitional period in your life where you will be moving on to a new stage.')

- 'Bristol's prosperity has been linked with the sea since its earliest days. At the turn of the 15th and 16th century, it was the base for voyages of exploration to the New World [...]'

Seeing as the DJ was encouraging me to play a style of music that could be seen as a mellow medium between the two hardcore genres, then I guess this is about the need for a positive merger between our lower and higher aspects. My looking out of place in the lower part of the nightclub may be a reflection of my desire to get into the higher zone, but... I think the key here is about the negative meaning attributed to the letter J: lazy - as in I need to pull my finger out and work harder at attaining the goal I'm striving for, rather than kicking back and watching the current saga unfolding around me. To be fair, I can't really take issue with that assessment as I have been a bit too laid-back lately, so some aspect of my personal development that is 'not working' or 'distorted' could be due to that slacking off.

The city's motto could be seen as complementing the above, as virtue and an industrious approach to our continuing self development and increasing awareness are required to keep us on course as we set sail for the 'New World.'

Industrious:

ɪnˈdʌstrɪəs/Submit
adjective
diligent and hard-working.
"an industrious people striving to make their country prosperous"
synonyms:    hard-working, diligent, assiduous, sedulous, conscientious, steady, painstaking, persistent, persevering, pertinacious, unflagging, untiring, tireless, indefatigable, studious; busy, busy as a bee, active, bustling, energetic, on the go, vigorous, determined, dynamic, driven, zealous, productive; with one's shoulder to the wheel, with one's nose to the grindstone; archaiclaborious
"he was honest, sober, and industrious"


The icons I saw totaling 22 in number: this could reflect PKD's view that current reality is based on the twenty two letters of the Hebrew alphabet - with the as-yet-missing twenty third letter being that which heralds transition into a new, divine era.

I wonder if the part about not playing a certain tune because it's only suitable at the end of a set or gig, is about not trying to force things ahead of time and to instead allow them to occur naturally, when the time is right. I guess with positive synchronicity, things flow as they ought: neither too soon nor too late - occurring exactly at the right moment.
