While sitting in a conference meeting in China, two years ago, I took this photo of the ceiling. You can see the projector for the presentation which had been lowered from the circular mirrored surface. Obviously the presentation wasn’t too engrossing for me as my attention wandered, something that often happens to me. In the mirrored surface of the circle on the ceiling is a reflection of the group gathered for the presentation. Now that caught my attention. Now, I was in dreamland.
In my dreams, there is quite a cast of characters. Each of these characters such as anima, appear in a number of disguises confusing the issue of exactly who they are in the dream. They change their ages, their appearance, and their sense of presence. Yet, they are important no matter what guise they take. In fact, the guise they wear is vital in order to communicate needed information to the self. Note that I said the self and not the ego. Most times it doesn’t matter if the ego isn’t even aware that a dream happened let alone who was in the dream. Yet, sometimes a dream forces itself into the ego’s consciousness. When this happens, it’s time to pay attention. Of course, that is a good time for working with a guide, a dream guide, who will ask questions. The best dream guides will never give you an answer, an interpretation of the dream. Only the dreamer, in the end, can know this.
