WRITING IN A DREAM
Henry Reed, Ph.D.
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'm surprised by a
recognition of the truths operative in my life, and I feel
elevated into a superconscious awareness of meaning.
The dream remains uninterpreted, but it doesn't matter.
The dream becomes, not exactly understandable, but
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 the "I
am," and realize once again how, for "that that I
dream is a most natural mode of seeing.
