mmm - i sometimes see stuff in dreams that i see in waking times too......
Now and then when I remember, I sit down quietly and close my eyes, breathe deeply and for a few moments sink into silence. Sometimes when I am in this silent place I go on little adventures, I call them ‘awake’ dreams. This is the story of one dream.
I am standing in a very ancient room, it has no walls, it appears to go on forever in all directions and is filled with millions and millions of books. Every book is filled with knowledge, with wisdom and truths that have been discovered throughout the ages. Slowly all the books begin to disappear and fade away, the old yellow pages crumb into dust. Finally, there is one small book left, it’s bound in a soft red cover. I move towards this book, a wise being joins me and says this book contains all the wisdom of the universe. I careful open it and I’m surprised to see that it contains only one page, on that page is written one word. LOVE
John Perkins in his book Psychonavigations describes this technique of 'awake dreams' or 'dream wandering' A practice used by tribal cultures and shamans to access their own inner guidance. Using this technique you go on journeys that help you to find direction in life and to explore new ideas, it can be a wonderful way of accessing new creative ideas as well.
