Â The Great Clock Face Â 3:31 Â (Live audio from One Earth, One Dream, including the words of Michael Meade)
I’m deeply asleep, lying on the earth somewhere underground. Â Then someone, a man, says, “I’m glad you’re ready; I’ve come from very far away to take you on a journey.” Â I wake at this but keep my eyes closed. Â I listen closely to see who will respond, but no one does. Â Then I realize he’s talking to me!
I open my eyes. Â I’m lying beside a huge clock face, hundreds of feet across, an oval wooden ramp with gold Roman numerals painted on it. Â I stand up, step onto it, and begin walking up the clock face counterclockwise from six o’clock.
I arrive at the midnight point, where there’s a showerhead, painted gold, floating suspended, attached to thin air. Â I step under it. Â Water begins to flow.
The voice says, “When you think, you see only the outside of everything. Â You know what’s possible and what’s impossible, what everything is, and where everything belongs. Â But the world around you is dead!”
“But when this water flows, then you feel the world from the inside. Â Then you can’t be separate. Â Then everything is in you, and everything is alive!”
