A spirit teacher shares His understanding of timeless wisdom.
He tells me that dreams serve us well, even if we can’t remember
them, upon awakening.
They’re designed to help us see symbolic meaning between
situations and personalities, whether human, animal, or
imaginary creatures, within the dream and similar situations,
events, and characters within our everyday non-sleeping world
Situations and stories play out in dreams, He tells me, and
then, usually, end suddenly. We wake up to a different world;
one 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 deceit.
In what way?
There have always been some unethical advertisers, politicians, false prophets, etc. who use a pretense of authority and truth
to persuade or pressure trusting minds.
But, in a dream I witnessed a crow doing what crows couldn’t
Were you aware of this during the dream?
I seem to remember being confused and in awe.
But, you accepted the situation as being valid?
Why didn’t you question something that didn’t seem to make
Because I was witnessing the event. It was only in my mind
that it didn’t make sense.
You read fictitious stories without expecting them to be real.
Yes, of course but, surely, real life is not a fictitious story.
Then, why don’t you question events and situations in your
so-called waking life that don’t seem to make sense, and
people who claim to be be what you suspect the’re not.
Perhaps they have a hidden agenda?
But, I’m only one person. What possible useful purpose
would it serve for me to …
So, you adopt a more socially acceptable position of
pretending not to know?
I guess. But, if whatever untruth is generally accepted
then surely some others must also know the truth and, like me,
pretend not to.
It’s easier, and possibly safer.
