I want everything she wears and how she wears it. It's sexy because she covered but still seductive, and when she moves the clothes move too.
I've only recorded three dreams so far, and when I woke up this morning I had completely forgotten about my beautiful dream at first. Then, I remembered! Two really incredible and unsual events occurred in my dream. It started off as a regular dream within a familiar location and evolved into me flirting with a waiter/chef(?) at a restaurant. I wanted to seduce him so I snuck behind the bar and was waiting for him so we could get-it-on. He came and kissed me, and I remember vividly the feeling of it on my lips. Then an overwhelming feeling took me, it was a sense of knowing that this guy is my 'true love' and the guy I will have my life with. It was in an instant in which I just knew this was it.
Later, the location changed to a rural snowy scene, mountains encircling us. People were all around me, especially children. I felt myself gradually becoming younger like the kids playing with me. We were on a frozen body of water picking at the ice, and I remember putting it in my mouth to taste it. Then I looked up and aurora borealis took up the sky in bright purple. I was a little girl sitting in the snow and the strongest part of my dream happens now - a complete feeling of joy, happiness and gratitude. I was so thankful to be seeing the sky, like I was receiving a gift. I saw images of people in the sky and bright moving cloud-lights.
After this, my dream took a pretty normal turn and became more like a story again.
These events are significant to me but I'm not sure how or why yet. I don't want to get caught up in them, I don't want to chase them even though I feel like I've lost something now. I have faith that this dream was special and I need to learn from it. I'm excited about it!
‘Aurora Borealis – If you dream of seeing the northern lights and experience a feeling of love and warmth you are probably having a spiritual experience and you should examine all the other symbols found in the dream, no matter how small they are. Usually this feeling of peace and love is an indication that your spiritual state is doing well, but if you are frightened or sad it may be an indication for you to come back into the light of God’s love and care.’
Here is a good resource for beginning to understand your own dreams: The Dream Well. I'm curious to hear from people out there on the inter webs - who else has had strange/beautiful dream experiences?
ALSO! This time last year I wrote a blog post about a significant dream - read it here. This year, I am in an art class with a very inspiring and helpful art teacher. Pretty weird?
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matt 16:24
I read a great explanation of Jesus and Easter as a metaphor in Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth - it goes basically like this: the crucifixion of Jesus, and his rebirthing is a moral story for people to 'crucify' their egos, their selfishness, so that they will be 'reborn' into an existence of pure joy and eternal being - as there is no other time other than now, now is eternal.
Jesus was a man (ego, the self), was killed on the cross (sacrifice = acceptance of situation), and then later reborn (Easter celebration) as an eternal being in the human world (existing without ego).
You don't need to be christian or a 'spiritualist', or anything to understand this message. I think that even atheists all over the world are able to understand the value in diminishing the dominance of selfish human beings. We are all essentially selfish as humans, but I think we also have the great ability to be unselfish. This is a value which transcends religious and societal labels.
So, I see Easter as a time to be reminded that universal joy is always within our reach, but only once we become selfless and sacrifice our own ego to the moment. It is then, in that moment, that we find true happiness and purpose. I think that's when we're the best human beings; when we are living life free from our minds, free from nagging and needing and desire - when we live completely in the moment.
It's really hard to live like this, but Easter is a reminder to try again.
Check out how cute these videos are! I particularly enjoy Sunshine vol.2 - the 60's cuts and music... and the horsie's pointy ears. I'm going to Tasmania for the Easter holidays, and now I'm inspired to take some road trip footage myself.
So fucking true!
“Am I in love? --yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn't wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover's fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.”
