Powerful Expansions During Dream School

I very much enjoy night school during my dream time. Sometimes I wake up with only hints and fragments of powerful experiences and lessons learned, while occasionally I remember quite a bit of detail from my dream school sessions. One recent time period was particularly rich. On several mornings over a period of about 10 days I remembered profound lessons I'd had during night school. On the final morning, I even awoke and continued a powerful dream in a half-awake state for quite a while, communicating with an intriguing force which called itself "the singularity."

The first dream school lesson in this series came after exploring at bedtime the infinite question, "Why am I here?" In the dream, I was sitting with a number of wonderful friends opening to a deeper ways of being together. On awakening, I attempted to capture in the paragraph below the words and expressions that came to me:

"As this 'I that is me' self surrenders and opens to the expanded presence of a greater 'I that is we' Self, an energy greater than me is invited in. As those around me join in opening to this expansive 'I that is we' energy, a place of deep acceptance and honoring of the 'I that is me' within each of us expands into the sacred collective presence of the 'I that is we.' This expansive, vibrant state naturally envelopes all who join in opening to this divine presence. It illuminates the divine essence in each of us and in all of us. Together, our collective expression of this expanded essence transforms our experience of both our internal and external worlds."

Just a few days later during my nightly dream school session, I found myself slowing down into a state of deep meditation. Once I slowed my consciousness down to a certain point, I found myself flowing in a limitless sea of energy. In this state, I could see that this vast sea in which my awareness now swam was made up of the combined core essence of all beings.

Any negative judgments I might have had about anything simple faded away in this infinite, flowing interconnectedness of all beings. I saw clearly that whenever I'm feeling disconnected, I can shift this by simply going inside and slowing down enough to allow myself to open once again to this state of pure beingness in this grand sea of collective awareness.

The entry from my daily diary below describes how the process continued a few days later. This entry describes the first day of a three-day fast and silent retreat this year.

August 30: "Day 1 of 3 days of silence. Upon awakening this morning, I decided to keep my eyes closed and move into slow, deep breathing where I held my breath at the top of every breath. I did this for a couple hours and found myself in some delicious, inspiring places. Afterwards, I took a number of naps throughout the day with very rich dreams in which I connected with many significant people from my past. One realization was: 'When others look into my eyes, may they see their own infinite magnificence reflected back to them.' I also realized that every major cover-up is somehow a global reflection of our interpersonal struggles."

How much have we chosen to abandon each other, and even more importantly, to abandon ourselves through focusing on our differences? Even when we work against the old paradigm, we are choosing more polarization and judgment. When instead we work to support what's best for all of us, we create transformation which transcends duality.

A culmination of this period of rich dream training came on the morning of Sept. 2nd, just after completing my three days of silence. I awoke that morning from a dream where I was having a connection with the force I mentioned which called itself the "singularity."

For those who aren't familiar with the scientific concept of the singularity, it is a postulated point of rapid change in the near future when computer intelligence surpasses human intelligence. Some fear that computers will rapidly take over our world at this time. Though the singularity with which I had this conversation might have a vague resemblance to this scientific description, it was also something qualitatively quite different – some type of greater collective consciousness.

As I awoke from this powerful dream, I was amazingly able to continue in a partially awakened state the energetic conversation with this "singularity." I was informed that it works against no individual, yet disintegrates rigidly structured groups. It is a force of creative chaos. It uses chaos to disorder the old ways and form a deeper, more flexible order based in the individual's direct relationship with the All. It only threatens rigidly structured groups which attempt to control the individual. The singularity is in some ways the antithesis of the old scientific paradigm which wants to order, categorize, and control everything.

The singularity opposes rigid control and works on an individual level. The parts of each individual which are attached to control and rigid structure cannot help but crumble in the face of this potent force. The singularity provides the fire which heats the cauldron into which all individuals are eventually drawn. All individual attachments to rigid and controlling behavior must dissolve in this transformative cauldron to open to a new interconnected crystallization based in creative chaos.

The singularity is a force of disintegration into greater awareness and more profound connections. It naturally opposes strict rules, as they create control over the individual. The singularity is a force of destruction for rigid ritual practices, yet a force of creative inspiration for fluid ceremony which welcomes change.

While I continued in this half-awake state, the singularity showed me how it is devouring the old hierarchical structure even now. The old static forms are being transformed into more malleable concepts based in intention and fluid intelligence. Those who need security in the midst of chaos will increasingly find it only in clarity of intention. Those who have moved beyond the need for security will soar on the wings of fluid intention and creativity.

Pay attention to the intention and let go of the need for form and structure. Creative chaos heals us and our world by disintegrating rigid structures which no longer serve the awakened individual, thus creating the space for a greater reintegration.

For many centuries, society has most highly praised those who sacrificed themselves to serve others. Yet the singularity represents the highest essence of both service to others and service to self. In its deepest essence, service to self clearly serves the All because the deepest desire of the self is to feel loved, appreciated, and connected. Selfish and greedy behavior create only temporary states of happiness which in the long run do not serve the Self's deeper needs and desires, and thus are not service to self in its deepest essence.

In the same way, when service to others sacrifices the self and leaves it drained or damaged to the point where it is much less effective, it does not in the long run serve others. It is time now to find a creative balance between service to self and service to others. When we fully serve either ourselves or others in the deepest, purest sense, we cannot help but serve the good of all of us. It is time to let go of the focus on only serving others or only serving the self so that we can move into the joy of being in service to All, which includes both self and others.

The singularity is not the All That Is, but rather a force of balance within the All. It welcomes pure desire as passion, yet beware of desires which arise from the need for control and security. These in the end cannot help but create more separation and disconnection. When, however, passion arises from a place of clear intention, the arrow of consciousness soars powerfully into the infinite potential of the creative unknown. Intention is a clear point of willful consciousness which gives both direction and purpose to life without any attachment to future outcome.

As a result of this intriguing conversation with the singularity that morning, I saw that I am a bridge through which creative chaos can flow. I fully open myself to being a bridge to expanded consciousness, and invite all around me to join me in this. Those who develop the clearest intentions naturally cause those around them to explore and clarify their own intentions. My purpose is to facilitate the clearest intentions of all of us, even as we welcome the mystery of creative chaos. I wouldn't be here if I weren't called here for this purpose by all of us, which is to say by All That Is.

What powerful connections and realizations during this period! I saw clearly how the old paradigm places the group above the individual and establishes a top-down hierarchy to enforce this. I saw how the group mind of this paradigm creates a consensus reality to which individuals conform.

In the new paradigm, however, each individual involved embraces their role as a co-equal creator of any group to which they belong, and as co-equal creators of their own reality who take personal responsiblity for their creation. Thus, the new communities we are creating will not have rules, but rather guidelines based on clear, flexible intentions. We are shifting to a place where each one of us is involved in a continual process of co-creating our reality together, with a much deeper awareness of the divinity inherent within every one of us.

The singularity is upon us now, assisting us through the process of creative chaos to clear the way for both individuals and communities to fully embrace this exciting new paradigm. I and many others are excited to be a part of this powerful shift to support all individuals in rising to their true divine glory together.

Side note: Particularly as a means to balance my at times overwhelming feelings of busyness, I love the morning times of inspirational reading I've set aside for myself. Many great, inspiring books have come my way that I get to enjoy during this time. Consciousness researcher Stanislav Grof's autobiography When the Impossible Happens was particularly rich and enlightening with it's colorful and amazing adventures into alternate realities. And The Prism of Lyra by went far deeper than any book I've ever read into the grand picture of the evolution of the universe. Though not as personally transformative, nor as beautiful and poetic as the WingMakers, Prism of Lyra went even deeper than the WingMakers material in describing the big picture of life on earth and in our galaxy.

I also realized that every major cover-up is a global reflection of our interpersonal struggles.

Fred, this is so powerful. Thank you. I've stated that I don't remember my dreams for the most part, but the interactions here at the Portal have made me realize that actually I remember far more than I thought. I wish I could get in touch with that other side of awareness as well as you have.

Aquene! Ajo! Wow! All of you folks amaze me.

Using AI to investigate the evolution of organic intelligence more fully would seem to be a very good application, though I think it will prove to be limited in experiential skills that humans will hopefully again excel in as the wisdom and value of indigenous cultures (for example, Shamanism) is once again recognized and reintegrated into our lives, as that wisdom also helps us to free ourselves from programming and Controls that are not conducive to our growth and freedom.

What wonderful places you have explored. It's so great to be where these new vistas open up among openminded peers! I think we are using communication in a truly sacred way.

If anyone has read the Defending Sacred Ground material that I've copied into the forum, there is mention of 12th Dimensional beings that the Andromodans have recently become aware of and have no idea how to catagorize. For some reason, the first thing that popped into my head when I read that was "Archangels".

I skimmed the book and now must go back and really read it. Some of the information is startling to say the least. Other parts, like the idea of densities, fit right in with how I understand reality. I remembered a book I read in the 70s - and alas, I remember neither the British author nor the title - in which the author attempted to define man's relationship to the divine in mathematical terms. He discussed levels of reality in terms very harmonious with density. Huston Smith also developed the idea in his little book, Forgotten Truth.

The first time I encountered the idea of galactic civilization (other than TV) was in the 1970s in a little book called The Galactic Club which argues that there must surely be a civilization "out there" observing us with more than a little trepidation, to see if we developed into a stable enough planet to be admitted to the Galactic Club, or whether we would have to be obliterated for the good of all. All of this stuff involving Pleiadians, Anunnaki, managed DNA and so forth is stuff that I've come across more recently. And honestly, I don't know what to make of it. I don't discount it any more.

It's interesting to me that the phenomena of ET encounters really don't seem to overlap much with the world of dreams. This suggests to me that they are very real.

Thanks for the most excellent comments. I only wish I had time right now to go into more depth, but I've got a very full and busy weekend ahead. I look forward to going deeper into this, especially in the WingMakers forum, which we should have up sometime next week. Have a great one! With sacred love flowing, Fred

It is so great to read the articles and thoughts from you all. To actually read it in words somehow crystallises and confirms my feelings and ideas of how things should and will be working. I read a great deal of Science Fiction way back in the sixties and writers such as Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke and many of the others understood these paradigms and principles. They cloaked it in Science Fiction because it made it less "scary" and yet allowed these thoughts and ideas to filter through to the general public.
Deep inside myself I understand and resonate with all of this and now it is just to still my mind and to delve into that deep well and open up!
Thank you all
With Love, Joy, Nurturing and Letting Go

There IS some sort of overlap in some cases, but it can also be quite convincing in a different way...

You're right about that. I've read numerous accounts of abductions occurring while the person was in bed. Most of the reports I've read however, treat it as a real event rather than an extraordinary dream. Of course it could have been a dream, and probably some were. But most folks know when something was a dream. That wake and say, "It seemed so real!" The majority of the time we don't wonder if it really happened - at least until we get where you and I are, where we question the boundaries of reality.

You also wrote...Recently I've been seeing and feeling much more clearly how to get OUTSIDE of that paradigm instead of circling around and around in those crazy loops trying to find the way to destroy it. or escape it....We have to be able to really think outside of it before we can begin to see the potential of true change,

I think that's the real key. We have to step entirely outside that paradigm, and of course it's difficult. Fred's been pointing out that dreams can serve as a kind of classroom where we learn ways of stepping outside the paradigm and the arbitrary boundaries that define it. I hope to be able to get in better touch with my own dreams.

I've spent the majority of my life doing exactly what you describe: circling in those crazy loops, trying to find my place in the paradigm, or a way to climb above it. It's only been the last few years - after half a century stuck in those loops - that I've seen the path. The odd thing is that I knew most of what I need to know all along. This just shows how dense I am!

I've found the way and I've tasted the joy and expanded vision that one discovers within. I haven't found the way to make it easy. I can step totally outside for a period of time, and when I come back I bring it with me. But there are always the days when worldly concerns bear down, and sometimes it takes days to get my groove back.

I really appreciate the many views and resources we all share here. The TC was life-changing. As the portal fills with people, there will be the chance to learn and teach continuously. I'm very grateful.


davelambert's picture

It really looks like we will be less weighed down with worldly concerns as the 100th Monkey Principle kicks in and the Dimensional shift progresses.

That's my hope, Aquene. That's how it seems to be going. I've learned volumes about detachment in recent years! I too resonate with the Maya idea, the endless dance of illusion.

You're absolutely right - this is juicy!

(Dave, not Carl)

But I guess you knew what I meant.Namaste, Aquene

Indeed I did, sister/daughter/friend, and in any event, I have been called many worse things. As I reminded Fred when he made a similar slip though, Carl may want an apology!

Hi Dave, Aquene and Ursula

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and excitement on this. The three of us who were most responsible for making this website happen, Beth, Andrey, and I, are all deeply committed to transcending paradigms and moving from a deep holographic perspective. We certainly aren't able to live from this place all the time, yet we're really enjoying challenging each other to bring this awareness more fully into each other's lives. It's been quite exciting watching how this gradually is transforming our own lives. Fun stuff!!! We hope to have lots more like this in the community portal. You have a great one!

With sacred love and excitement flowing,

Hello fellow transformation seekers! I am a new member, trying to get my bearings. This is my first real entry. I hope to engage in an ongoing way in the "get immediate help" section to give and ask for assistance getting to my cutting edge of reaching my intensions by opening myself and getting closer with new and present friends in real time. Hope to see you there. Love, David.

5:30 AM. I just awoke from dream starting with my climbing a rickety internal ladder to try to find address of a place in a book I just read. At top of ladder I saw lots of people working as if very inspired in small groups. A man saw me looking and asked if he could help. I told him I didn’t quite know why I was there, but that I just finished a book I was inspired by, was picking up incredible vibes being there, was amazed by the indirect, theatrical lighting and colors of the place and wondered if I might learn what was going on. “Dammed if I know” he replied then proceeded to show me photo results of an advanced imagery of the spine of some sort of futuristic chiropractic. (Saw TV special on alternative health, including chiropractic last night for real.) He knew I’d be drawn in and I was. I scheduled an appointment and bought two expensive herbal remedies.


Scene switched to folks arriving for groups talk session that was transformational dealing with hurts from anti-Semitism. It never seemed to get started. Folks were just socializing. I returned down another rickety flight of this time external stairs, ending up in Martin the Jewish biochemists bedroom telling him how I was being transformed by the excitement of a Jewish group I was in, throwing my hands over my head and singing “Havanagela!” He laughed and was thrilled. (Martin was a good friend who rejected me over some kind of negativity I assume I was guilty of.)


Scene switches to me with male friends at some kind of intense dance self-improvement party. One man was taking leadership and insisting that we push ourselves to over-come our homophobia. He challenged us to dance closely in an impassioned way.


I woke up to pee and felt excited wanting to push myself through all the transformative means I am exploring: RC, NVC, meditation, evolutionary enlightenment and the  want to know transformation team. I sensed a kind of magical melding of me with others through these processes that I feel motivated to pursue by taking risks to get to the cutting edge of each. 


I am again reading the essence of Wing-maker wisdom, translated and distilled by want-to-know.org/transformation team leader Fred Burks. I am feeling excited that I am on to something meaningful and useful for all the creatures of the universe!

fredburks's picture

Wow, David! Thanks for sharing that very rich, potent material! And I love the abstract painting you attached as well. The balance of color, contour, and the feeling of some underlying mystery is just beautiful! Your dreams are quite intriguing. I find dream time to be like a magical night school where I have access to parts of myself and realities not accessible during wakeful time.

I have been increasingly taking on the practice that everything I experience is somehow a reflection of things going on inside of me. I've been inviting and getting plenty of challenges recently to work with this. It's not always easy, but I'm finding that seeing how we all in some mystic way mirror each other both individually and collectively is a powerfully mind-expanding practice. Thanks for joining us here, David. I look forward to hearing more from you.

With abundant love and warm wishes,

Hey beautiful people,

Gathering Spot member Oriole just today related to me that she had reread this piece and found it inspiring, so I thought I'd post a comment and bring it to the top again. Enjoy, and have a beautiful day.

With much love and joy,

I knew this was also something in physics, possibly also astronomy, so I looked up “gravitational singularity” on Wikipedia.  Where we find:

“A gravitational singularity or spacetime singularity is a location where the quantities that are used to measure the gravitational field become infinite in a way that does not depend on the coordinate system. These quantities are the scalar invariant curvatures of spacetime, which includes a measure of the density of matter. …. According to general relativity, the initial state of the universe, at the beginning of the Big Bang, was a singularity.”

            In other words, an infinitely dense something, that takes up no space.  Sounds like God to me!  Presumably at the very centre of the Universe.  The conscious and actual literal centre of the All that Is.  Perhaps the centre of all consciousness within the Universe.

Our dualistic minds have trouble understanding the numbers "one" or "zero".  Discursive reasoning persists and we make up all kinds of "things".  And, as far as I know we are the only beings that give meaning to things.  What if there really was no beginning and subsequently will be no end, and everything is either in a state of "is-ness" or becoming?  What if the seven days of genesis or other creation myths are speaking of something happening RIGHT NOW?  Constantly and continuously...

I really enjoyed that post from ages past, Fred.  Sounds like some profound visions there.  And fits right in with the philosophy of divine grace expanded and encompassing all of creation.  Transforming and transmuting.  Converging and merging.  Nowhere to run to, baby!  Nowhere to hide!

And I'm all for supporting and assisting this singularity you speak of.  Feels like I already am because I subscribe to similar sentiments.  Keeps me from joining groups.  This is technically the only one I "belong" to and the first time I've really tried to share via the WWW.  Facebook was an utter failure for me years ago, as no one wanted to converse.  Tear down the wall!  Away with the clutter!

Some interesting stuff regarding the "metatronic light" on http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net

Couldn't tell you where, exactly.  That's a huge and varied website...

Singularity of purpose.  Time and space being the illusions that they are, it becomes interesting attempting to conceive of these processes and instants all happening simultaneously.

Starmonkey's picture

Read some excerpts of Prism of Lyra and related materials on the bibliotecapleyades site.  Think I saw Stewart Swerdlow go into all that on youtube.  Sheds some "light" on the "darkness" out there...  And have you read His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman?  The main character's name is Lyra and she is the center of everyone's attention.  Constantly being pulled this way and that and the object of manipulation and agendas.  Except she's better at that game than most.  She has to learn how to curb her penchant for ly-ing, and how to use that gift to tell stories worth telling.  Great books and very well written.  He must have been channeling part of it in a metaphorical sense.

Anyway, what a mess!  Makes sense now as to why so many best laid plans go awry.  Control factor malfunctioning.  Maybe it should be turned on the self!  And then the greater "Self" may emerge.

Who knows?  I just like hearing myself talk.  Life in this cell is so much more interesting with a few echoes here and there.  Like "Sloth" in the Goonies...

fredburks's picture

Yes, Christopher. Ultimately there is only here and now. We are stuck in this moment for all eternity, so we might as well relax, get used to it, and learn how to enjoy the game. I suspect this is what the original source of all of this wanted when it created the game. And the more all of us open to the core divinity in ourselves and in all around us, the more the Divine can experience itself through us as we enjoy experiencing that Divine force within us. Very wild and trippy stuff!!! Yet is somehow makes sense to me.

With much love and gratitude for the stimulation thoughts,

fredburks's picture

Very cool stuff, Christopher. The Prism of Lyra by Lyssa Royale is the best attempt I've seen at explaining the deepest core roots and causes of everything in our universe. ET Contact by Gina Lake is also quite good, and the WingMakers philosophy is the clearest depiction of the core principles I've found. And thanks so much for the other recommendations, which I plan to explore when I get some time.

With love and gratitude,

Starmonkey's picture

This information is empowering and exciting!  I sort of went off reading as many articles as I could related to Lyssa Royal Holt and channeling of the entities "Germane" and "Sasha".  Sasha was the name of our dog who passed in February and initiated me into action...

Like the WingMakers material, this is quite astounding and emphasizes 100% personal responsibility in our co-creation.  The same issues keep popping up.  I applaud the Pleiadian viewpoint on the sharing of sexual energy not being the same as having sexual intercourse.  Probably the biggest stumbling block for humanity to realize and incorporate (myself included).  I usually (almost always) hold back part of myself because that's the status quo, and I've come to the conclusion that is why so many people avoid eye contact unless they're "dealing" (i.e. want something out of it, subtle manipulation).  This material also emphasizes facing fears and transforming that energy.  Our fears are the keys and guardians of our power.  The "dweller on the threshold".  If we haven't mastered our fears, they will destroy us in the fourth dimension, because we have the danger of actually manifesting that threat more immediately and it will be stronger because of our continued belief in it.  So the only true "security" is in balance and peace or neutrality.  Not becoming polarized over ideas/concepts.  Non-attachment.  So simple yet so seemingly unattainable.  There is no try.  You are the buddha.  Let it happen.  Maybe guide it a little if you have reservations...

Love flowing,


fredburks's picture

A big yes to taking 100% personal responsibility, Christopher. I have been exploring ever deeper into this one. It's quite daunting, yet also incredibly powerful. And I am way into using the sharing of sexual energy for greater purposes of transformation. Thanks for mentioning those.

I recently had the most incredibly profound journey of my life and it definitely brought up fears big time for me. I get that surrender is an absolute key, and I wasn't ready to surrender on this big one. Powerful stuff! Thanks so much for the rich conversation.

With much love and gratitude,

Starmonkey's picture

It is amazing how taking more responsibility actually LIGHTENS one's load!  So much less to worry about (other people, what they're doing) when you are concerned with your own actions/reactions and let others be who they are.  And being the son of a preacher and a teacher, I know how flawed those disciplines are because they don't emphasize the individual and their sovereignity enough.  So you can't TELL people and you can't do it for them.  They have to make that conscious choice to expand their world.

I had a nice long walk yesterday while listening to music (I don't usually).  Circumnavigated our local rose garden (not much left there) and then spent a great deal of time walking around the cemetery.  Wondering about past lives and dreams fulfilled or not...  Although keeping my movements simple and discreet (there were a few other visitors remembering loved ones), I decided to bring some uplifting energy to the place with a little subtle dancing and weaving.  Figured they get plenty of sad energy around there.  Played a sort of little mental game, because I wondered how many of them really let themselves go and experience the full range of their bodies while living, so I gave them a taste of that.  While also respecting and rejoicing in the ways they moved through life (dancing or otherwise).  I imagine some of them were very graceful in their own ways.  What a beautiful vision it was.  And the dead CAN dance!

I look forward to hearing about your experience, Fred.  When and if you are ready to share.  You are being challenged to take it to the next level, it sounds like.  Singularity of purpose (focus) will help through those obstacles.  In the Nine Princes in Amber series by Roger Zelazny, the members of this family have the ability to travel between worlds/dimensions/realities by walking this "pattern" they call it.  Like a labyrinth.  But as they walk it, it becomes harder and harder to move forward except by sheer force of will/determination.  And then, poof!  They're through.  Couple that perspective with the O.T.O. and putting love as your driving force... ;)  Storm the citadel!  Rescue the maiden!  Bring back fire from the heavens!

I will support you in whatever way I can in this journey, brother.  And I BELIEVE in you.  This wonderful and amazing community wouldn't be here if it weren't for your sacrifice and devotion.  Thank you and may you soar with eagle's wings.
