Dreams from October 7, 2005

Dream 1:

I am in a strange medical building. The people around me are discussing a boy that is laying there. He survived sharing his mother's womb with salmon. They mention that the salmon made a good dinner.

There is a cart being pushed around. A head is on it, but the head is alive and talking even though there is not a body to go along with it.

Dream 2:

I am in a room with several other people. We are passing around coins and we are studying them, checking out different reliefs on the coins. We are also looking at other small pieces of metal.

There are lots of pieces of cake around. They are nice big pieces.

I see a girl I used to go to high school with. (Not in real life.) She was a popular girl in high school. I want her to know how I've turned out. I say to her, "I'm an Economicist." She says something like, "I saw your mother at Jazzercise and she said...." (I can't remember the rest.) I feel she is somehow putting me down. I get into it with her, telling her to shut up.

Later I am looking at a box that has been laid down on my area of the table. I open it. It's a box that belongs to the girl. Inside are several books, like small tiny medical books and a note that says her father is Robert Blake. I feel sorry for her, then. I didn't realize she was Robert Blake's daughter. (Robert Blake is an actor in our country who was accused of murder but was somehow acquited.)

Dream 3:

I am getting on a city bus. For some reason they won't let my friend Jessica on. She has a little dog with her. I try to negotiate with the bus driver. I eventually tell the female driver that if she lets my friend on, I'll go bowling with her. She agrees and lets my friend on.

Dream 4:

I'm with a group of people. I think we are a school group. We're going to an amusement park. I'm talking to the ticket man. I've forgotten my ticket. He won't let me go through. I ask if I pay money and find my ticket later, will they give me a refund? He says, "Yes." I ask my mother for some money. She gets out a few hundred dollar bills. These aren't normal bills. They're old-looking printed bills, and they are different from our country's usual style. I notice they have the year 1810 printed on them. I tell my mother, "Mom, do you have any others? Let's keep these. They are old." She says, "Yes." I look at the old bills again carefully and realize they are newer bills than I thought. They were just printed to look old. But, I find my ticket anyway so we don't have to use any money.

Dream 5:

I'm looking in a mirror. My hair has been cut very short, just below my ears. I start crying. Someone must have came and cut my hair while I was sleeping. (In real life my hair is long and straight. It is all the way down to the small of my back.)

Dream #1:
Just one dream at a time.
Don't push your idea of enlightenment too far.
It doesn't mean sharing your life
with a fish as twins.
I agree with the medical staff. It would make a great meal.
But experimenting with a severed head is going too far.

Dream #2:
It's nice doing some dream interpretation while listening to Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run.
"Baby, we were born to run!"
Having some special interest and having your eyes on pieces of cake is not such a bad taste.
Competition? Some teachers say it's a such a bad practice.
Non-resistance is what they teach in the internal martial arts and aikido. Does it help? If you are small, old, and weak, maybe it's worth trying to learn.
How do you meet strong competitors? Pretend they don't exist. Don't do anything; just stand there, like a scarecrow.
Most of them wouldn't try anything too risky.

Dream #3:
Good champion and negotiator.
Play and play fairly. Don't give
the driver any chance of winning.
Enlightenment is not about being a loser. Just learning to lose if you lose.

Pollux said...

Dreams # 4 & 5:
I'm running out of interpretation.
What do these dreams tell about you?
Why do you want to collect old bills?
Why do you like long hair?

I was actually supposed to make Robert Blake's web page, but he flaked on me... then of course came this little fiasco which pretty much ended that deal.

Besides that... nice site. Take your time with it... and with your quest for enlightenment. They both come from within... and you already have you, whether or not you've found that yet.
