Dream Date April 23, 2007

First dream:

[Surprise, surprise, it's another school dream, and as usual I don't have my homework done.]

I am sitting in class and the teacher walks around to check that everyone has their homework done. When he gets to me I come up with an excuse because I don't have mine finished.

Second dream:

My sister is checking to see what her current grade is in her class. Strangely, she has a beard in this dream. She finds out that she has a 50% in the class. She tells me, and I'm disappointed. She does a little bit of math and figures out that in order to pass the class, she needs to make a 40% on the next test. (Apparently math in my dreams doesn't make sense.)

Do you have a picture of your sister with a beard?

Are you a Procrastinator? If you are then you have good sense of priority. You want to be enlightened first. Sooner or later you will be, especially if you are lazy.
Most enlightened people are lazy. They prefer to sit still all day. And there is a way to daydream without showing it.

Second dream: You suspect your sister of deceit or deviousness. A beard doesn't always suggest wisdom.

Truly enlightened people don't think of the future. And they have no obligations to society. They are like cats. They sleep or daydream all day and play at night. But that doesn't mean they are deceitful or devious.
They prefer to lie in wait and pounce at the right moment. They don't care if they succeed or not. They just play. They don't care. But they are kind. And they are harmless.

Love how math works in your dream. Maybe your dream of not having your homework done represents that you do not want to be judged, you would rather not do something for fear of the judgment you will recieve when you do.

Leighton, Nope, no picture of my sister with a beard. Although, there were times growing up that I'd have loved to draw one on her, along with horns. :)

Sophia said...

Anonymous, Yes! I am a procrastinator. I think this goes along with my laziness.

I love my sister but we don't talk or see each other as often as I'd like. We are two completely different people.

Sophia said...

Mark, that's a good interpretation. I dislike and greatly fear being judged. I think this plays a part in my fear of big crowds or social circumstances, although lately I'm getting better and finding it easier to speak in front of people. The real test comes later this year when I have to visit different corporations and give presentations. I am not looking forward to that time!

I'm glad you didn't pay attention to the second comment. It's like a koan to me. In fact I was wondering why I wrote it. I thought about it all day but I couldn't figure it out. Well, maybe there are really no truly enlightened people. There is enlightenement but no one who becomes enlightened.
And maybe I was dreaming when I wrote it down. I must have been thinking of my big orange cat at that time. He is new to the neighborhood so I had to keep him inside. He is very lazy and he sleeps all day. But he is very friendly and affectionate. In fact I'd like to think he is a reincarnation of an old favorite cat of mine. I hope you don't mind my telling you this. It's like I'm using your blog to make confessions.

I have decided to take a break from blogging.

I read your dreams but can offer no sound interpretation.

It was great to get back in contact with you. You were one of the first people to visit my blog and I really enjoyed hearing from you.
Also you introduced me to some great characters like George Breed, Beard and Jim.
I wish you the very best.

Hi Sophia - i like to read where you have visited in your non-waking state...

I've been away a little bit from blogging, trying to feel the feet of the physical world - yet I feel the positivity in your explorations...

And thank you for the you-tube link for 'The Message' - very inspiring!

Anonymous #1,

I don't mind if you use my blog to make confessions. :)

I have an orange cat, too. It seems we have a few things in common!

I did pay attention to your second comment, by the way, I just didn't know what to say in response to it. I read every comment, yes, it's true. Looking back, though, perhaps I could add that I do think there are enlightened people, I just wonder whether or not they are enlightened twenty-four hours a day. We are all humans and I don't think anyone is perfect all the time. Or maybe being enlightened doesn't necessarily mean one is perfect. Perhaps there is no correlation between the two.

Hi Rob, I am sorry to hear that you are leaving blogging. :( I had just gotten used to reading your blog again.

At the same time, I can understand that you might need a break. I've done that a few times myself, but I always end up coming back. Sometimes it's nice to go back to the real world for a while and experience simply being without having to write about it.

I'm honored to be one of the first to comment on your blog, and I'm glad that through me you were able to meet some outstanding people. This spiritual blogosphere is a truly amazing concept, and I am thankful for the connections that I've made.

I will continue to check your blog to see if you've decided to return. In the meantime, if you do come back, please let me know either by stopping by here and leaving a comment or emailing me. You can email me anytime, and my email address is on my blog and profile.

I wish you well!

Hi Kingsley,

Great to hear from you! I had discovered earlier this morning that you have other blogs for me to explore. I look forward to reading them!

In the non-waking state, we never know where the road will take us, but it's exciting just waiting to find out. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed the video!

That was a lovely response from you.
I will visit you from time to time.

Take care of yourself.

Thanks, Rob. You do the same! Namaste!
