Spirit tells me that dreams serve us well,
even if we cannot remember them, upon awakening.
They are designed to help us see symbolic
meaning between situations and personalities,
whether human, animal, bird, or imaginary
creatures, within the dream and similar
situations, events and characters within
our everyday non-sleeping world of illusion.
Situations and stories play out in dreams,
and then, usually, end suddenly. We wake up
to a different world of more easily
understood situations and characters.
Perhaps we have just become accustomed to
the events and actors in our waking world?
Yes, and familiarity can easily breed
In what way?
Advertisers, politicians, educators,
news reporters, and even many parents
use a pretense of authority and truth,
and intentional dishonest to persuade,
or pressure young and trusting minds.
But, in my dream I witnessed a crow
doing what crows could not likely do.
Were you aware of this during the dream?
I seem to remember being confused
and in awe.
But, you accepted the situation as being
Why did you not question something that
did not seem to make sense?
Because I was witnessing the event.
It was only in my mind that it did
not make sense.
You read fictitious stories without
expecting them to be real.
But, surely, real life is not
a fictitious story.
Then, why do you not question events
and situations in your so-called
waking life that do not seem to make
sense, and people claiming to be
what you know they are not.
Perhaps they have a hidden agenda.
But, I’m only one person. What possible
useful purpose would it serve for me
So you adopt more socially acceptable
position of pretending not to know?
I guess. But, if whatever untruth
is generally accepted, then surely
I would serve no useful purpose, and
some others must know but, like me,
prefer to pretend not to.
It’s easier, and possibly, safer.
