WRITING IN A DREAM
Henry Reed, Ph.D.
My most satisfying moments of rapport with a dream
have occurred when I stopped trying
to interpret the
dream, when I quit looking at it and
began looking with
it, trying to see the world
in the way my dream sees it.
While looking through a dream
out into my life, as
through a metaphorical looking-glass, I'll have flashes of
lucid vision. "Aha! Of course!"
I am surprised by a
recognition of the truths operative in my life, and I
elevated into a superconscious awareness
The dream remains uninterpreted, but it doesn't
The dream becomes, not exactly
rather a poetic best expression of truth. The dream itself
is transparent; it is life that glows with
meaning. I'll be
awed by the dream's uncanny ability
to envision with
images so personally suited to transform my experience.
I then become acutely aware of the Presence, of
am," and realize once again how, for
"that that I am," a
dream is a most natural mode of seeing.
