Trip to Salt Lake City, Part 1. The Dream.

Event: 27 December 2011; Updated: 13 January 2012


 December 27, 2011. 0430  Salt Lake City. (After arriving the night before and staying with youngest son, John Allen Kovalenko)
"What have I done?" I ask myself among people in a large house who have made a huge investment in this property and many surrounding houses and buildings in the area, all of which have been remodeled, repainted and now operational. The people (adults, children and crawling babies) are waiting patiently for me to become aware of who and what they are and my role among them. It is clear that they want me to be a part of their project and that it all started because of an idea that I had brought to them long before. 
 I say, "Well, I think I'd like to be a teacher about dreams. How would you all like to try an experiment?" 
 "Yes!" they say. 
 "Right now?" 
 "Yes!" again, they say. 
 "OK, everyone recall a dream….", as I wake. 
 Before waking I am watching with amazement the technology of how people move swiftly from place to place, sometimes being catapulted up and out of the building into flying nets that catch them gently and precisely and transport them swiftly to their next property destination. 
 There is a baby crawling in the room where I am sitting, who is called "Baby Fleece" and who precociously repeats exactly everything it hears.

Integral Deep Listening (IDL) Interview

Date of interview:  3 January 2012

What are three fundamental life issues that you are dealing with now in your life?

1.  Getting new dialogue (intervention?) w/family regarding son Johnny

2.  Growing LADDOF, Inc.

3.  Refining the RPK experiment

Tell me a dream you remember... (Or, choose a strong feeling or symptom…)
.See above

Why do you think that you had this life experience?
.I have just arrived in Salt Lake City to meet with three Mormon men, visit son Johnny and deliver personal archival materials to the University of Utah Special Collections library.

If it were playing at a theater, what name would be on the marquee?
.The Mormon-Church Factor.

These are the characters in the experience…
.car, parked cars at curb of street, big house, living room, many people, "Baby Fleece", advanced personnel-transporting technology, many nearby houses and buildings within a unified urban complex.

If a character had something especially important to tell you, which would it be?
.Living Room

(Character,) would you please tell me what you look like and what you are doing?
.I am a large living room in a remodeled house within a large real estate project. At present I am giving Eugene a sense of warmth, acceptance, encouragement and safety.

What do you like most about yourself in this experience? What are your strengths?
.I am well built, creatively remodeled and a secure place for visitors. My strengths are in evoking confidence, and offering protection and comfort to guests.

What do you dislike most about yourself? Do you have weaknesses? What?
.Nothing to dislike.

If you could change this experience in any way you wanted, would you? If so, how would you change it?

If that experience were to continue, what would happen next?
.Eugene would become aware of his role and complete the dream-work experiment with the project people who have invited him here.

(Character,) if you could be anywhere you wanted to be and take any form you desired, would you change? If so, how?

(You are in this person’s dream or life experience, correct? He/she created you, right?)
.Yes and yes

(Character), what aspect of this person do you represent or most closely personify?
.I represent Eugene's enterprising, entrempornial spirit.

If you could live this person’s waking life for him/her, how would you live it differently?
.I would not live it differently. Eugene is progressing slowly through stages of awakening he is here to experience.

If you could live this person’s waking life for him/her today, would you handle his/her three life issues differently? If so, how?

What three life issues would you focus on if you were in charge of his/her life?
.Becoming more aware of his role in life; ministering to his family; ministering to the scientific community.

How would you score yourself 0-10, in confidence, compassion, wisdom, acceptance, peace of mind, and witnessing? And why?
.Confidence: 10. I have been recently renovated, updated and reinforced; Compassion: 10, my task is to surround and include all who come in to me; Wisdom: 10 I have been given access to the wisdom of master planners and managers; Acceptance: 10. I receive all who come through my doors; Peace of Mind: 10. All who enter me are surrounded with my peace; Witnessing: 10. It is a pleasure to be aware of this wonderful project and the master builders and planners who nourish and expand me.

(Character,) if you scored tens in all six of these qualities, would you be different? If so, how?
.I am there

How would this person’s life be different if he/she naturally scored high in all six of these qualities all the time?
.He would move more easily and smoothly through his continued awakening and grace-filled ministry.

In what life situations would it be most beneficial for this person to imagine that he/she is you and act as you would?
.Whenever he has guests to teach and care for.

Why do you think that you are in this life experience (or dream)?
.To bring Eugene a great sense of comfort that his life's work is unfolding as it should.

(Dreamer,) what have you heard yourself say? (Read them over)
.I am in a renewed place of service and teaching, which has been waiting for me to become more aware of my original purpose.

If this experience were a wake-up call from your soul, what do you think it would be saying to you?
.Enjoy your peace and smile with more confidence.

On January 3, 2012, I sent the above interview to Joseph Dillard, creator of the IDL technique, for his comments. On January 7 he replied:

Thanks for sharing your dream!  Nice job on the interview!

In it, "House" wrote the following:

If that experience were to continue, what would happen next?
.Eugene would become aware of his role and complete the dream-work experiment with the project people who have invited him here

I would like to see a rewrite of the dream, completing it along the lines indicated!



On January 7, I accepted Joseph's suggestion and continued the dream using active imagination in returning to my dream-self role:

In the large living room of House with those who have invited me here, I say,

"OK. You've all agreed (except Baby Fleece) to process your personal dreams with me at the same time. I do not know how many are here, because I cannot yet see you clearly, but that does not matter. I'm going to ask you a series of 12 questions, which can be answered 'yes', 'no' or 'uncertain'. I do not need to know the content of your dreams at this stage, nor will I keep track of your answers as I normally do in workshops or seminars.

"The questions are asked of your dream-self. It is an analysis of your dream-self behavior.

"Somehow this feels weird because you are all in my dream and thus in a world different from the physical world I normally work in. I feel you are all wiser than I in this room, so this may be an unnecessary exercise.  But since you have agreed to the test I will proceed and see where it goes. It's a test for me, too!

1. I begin with the key word "Clarity". Is your dream clear in your mind?
                        My sense is that you all answer "Yes".

2. Next key word: "Respondability". Are you responding to others or the situation in the dream (as opposed to reacting or being absent)?
                        My sense is that all answers are again "yes".

3. Next key word: "Emotion" or passion. Is your emotion high--are you passionate--in the dream?
                        Again: all yes.

4. Expression? Are you expressing your emotion or passion?

5. Interaction? Are you interacting with all characters in the dream?

6. Completion? Is there a sense of completion, resolution or satisfaction in your dream?
                        I sense some no's.

7. Pleasantness? Is your dream pleasant? Joyful?

8. Security? Do you feel safe?

9. Esteem? Do you have a sense of high self-esteem?

10. Authentic? 

11. Becoming? Are you becoming who you are capable of being?

12. Beloving? Are you beloving of the dream and all its characters or aspects? (Do they experience their own beauty in your presence?)

"I feel a little foolish having done this test with you all, since this particular exercise is simply meant to introduce people in the physical world to the world of dreams and here you all are in the dream world already and in community. What was I thinking to suggest such a 'test'?!

"There are better techniques than mine available, such as my friend Joseph's IDL interview, which I am working with in this dream. That is something that follows, not precedes my little test.

"Thank you for your indulgence. I'm now not so sure what role I ought or want to play with you now in this inner world. That will require me to see you better and to understand what your project now represents and why it is in me.

"Oh, Hello Brother Whiteshirt.  I feel you have been with me for a very long time--perhaps all my life!"
                        (He smiles silently)

It occurs to me now that I have had this dream in Mormon Church territory. But in being with the folks in this big room, it makes no difference what tradition or belief system anyone comes from. The little test I gave transcends any ideology or tradition or belief system.  Here the Mormon-Church Factor no longer seems relevant.

On January 8 Joseph Dillard wrote:

Dear Eugene,

I read it! Good job! 
What seems strange about it for you?
What feels incomplete, if anything?



On Friday 12 Jan 12 I responded: 

Dear Joseph,

Thanks for the question. Actually, it no longer feels strange nor incomplete.
