Dreams from September 24, 2005

Tonight's dreams weren't very, um, enlightening. However, since I like to keep track of all my dreams I'm putting them here.

Dream 1:

Before I go into this dream, let me explain myself. At work I've been researching bars and nightclubs, and this requires that I sometimes go to the business' web page to find out what they do, and if they are indeed a bar or nightclub. As we all know, some of these nightclubs are actually "gentlemen's clubs". Therefore, when I end-up on their webpage, sometimes images of nude people come-up. That brings us to the dream:

I'm on the computer late at night/early in the morning. I'm looking at these webpages which feature undressed people. By the window is a pool, and by the pool is a wooden privacy fence. I am unaware of it, but the images from my computer screen are reflected onto the pool's surface, which end-up being somehow projected on the privacy fence. The next door neighbor calls on the phone. (We'll call him "G".) He says, "Would you mind getting rid of the images?" I reply, "What images?" (I still am unaware that my computer screen is being projected on the fence like a movie!) He says, "You know... the images." I respond, "I don't know what you're talking about." He says, "The ones that are showing on your fence." I look out the window and feel my heart in my throat. I am more than embarrassed. I am petrified. I speak into the phone, "Um... sure." I then hang-up. I go to the computer and go to some other webpage, a blog of some sort. Something normal.

I try to think of some excuse as to why I was looking at such things. I need to call "G" and explain. He comes over and sits at the table. I look seriously into his eyes and say, "Listen up. I wasn't purposefully looking at those webpages. I made a mistake and ended-up on the wrong webpage. That caused lots of unwanted pop-ups to appear on the screen. That's what you were seeing - the pop-ups."

Dream 2:

(I've been having several dreams recently where I'm very angry. I wake myself up yelling at someone. Usually I haven't been remembering these dreams, but here is one I do remember.)

I'm at the customer service section of a store. I'm supposed to be picking something up that I've ordered. It's the second time I've been there to pick it up, because the first time I went it wasn't there. This time it's still not there. I grab a pen and throw it at the desk. I yell, "This is the second time I've been here to pick this thing up!" I get ready to say I'll come back, but then I say, "You know what? I'm through. I don't want the thing anymore!"

I don't know what these dreams mean. I think the first dream is just residue from what I've been doing at work. The second dream I have no clue. As I've said before I'm not normally an angry person. (Unless my anger goes into auto pilot when someone drives their car on my tail.)

These dreams just prove that we don't always have spiritual or insightful dreams. We are human and since we're human we have human dreams. They might not always be flattering.

Hi, it is I, your dreamy friend, Pollux.
About dream #3:
Your choice of the "woman" cameo reveals your religious orientation: religions or beliefs that tend to emphasize the feminine aspect of the Diety. This is something I cannot really know about you, as I am not clairvoyant, and which you alone really knows. Of course, this is not something very clear and permanent, as much as beliefs are not in-born and unchangeable. It might be more enlightening for you to take the time to find out what you really believe, and if these beliefs have any truth or validity in them. Know yourself by knowing what you believe or think, without having to identify yourself with them. If you stop identifying with anything, you are in a better state of finding out what really is valid or not. Non-identification is also an exercise you can try, to find out if your "self" or notion of self is real and permanent.
You might also be a bit more enlightened if you examine the masculine aspect of God, without having to accept anything until you are really convinced of its truth.
One good exercise you can try is to observe your thoughts, beliefs and ideas, without consciously making any analysis and judgement. This is what meditation is all about, with emphasis on not analyzing and making any conscious judgement. Just observe what you think and nothing else. There is a reason for this, as you will find out later on yourself.
Finally, think of these ideas as suggestions from a friend and that you may or may not have to follow them.

Sorry about that! This should be posted under "Dreams fragments from September 23, 2005"

Suggestion for dream #1:
Find out what your ideas and attitudes are about sex and pornography.
Suggestion for dream #2:
Find out what you think about anger. How do you relate to anger?

You don't have to share any of these thoughts to anybody. Keep them to yourself. A little separation, privacy, or secrecy is necessary.

Hi Pollux,

Regarding your interpreation of dream #3:

Sitting and pondering on what I actually believe might take ages! I'm not 100% sure what I believe. I'm trying to find out, though.

Hi Pollux,

Regarding dream #1, I have nothing against sex. It is a beautiful way for two people to unite and experience more of the interconnectedness of life.

Dream 2: I do believe anger is wrong and I feel guilty everytime I express it.
