Read the following. Posted Dreams follows.

Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams reveal vital information that expose the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation metaphorical of the emotional energies and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    My New Religion/Spiritual Concept

    I have often talked about leaving the 'old time religion' of my childhood and teen years {Southern Baptist} and seeking new avenues of spirituality. In the 90s I found the Unitarian/Universalists and Unity churches, both which are great churches, if you need a spiritual home. But even those fell short and I eventually decided if I needed to find a spiritual environment I need only take a walk in the forest or visit a local waterfalls {Burgess Falls one of my favorite places}. But without a 'religion' what principles would I live by? Well I have decided on what path/set of principles I shall take. It is influenced by Jung/Campbell of course and centered on the objective principles of nature and science. Something I have 'subconsciously' lived by for a long time but never gave it a name. Those principles I shall live by are called

    KARMA
    what goes around comes around



    Karma is the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect {Note: the application as originating in ancient India and treated in Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh philosophies}


    Cause and Effect, or Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is understood as a consequence of the first.

    Basically we cause what determines and happens in life and the effect is from our own actions. We do it to ourselves.

    What(ever) goes around, comes around.
    The results of things that one has done will someday have an effect on the person who started the events.
    "So he finally gets to see the results of his activities. What goes around, comes around. Now he is the victim of his own policies. Whatever goes around comes around."


    Also known: 'As the call, so is the echo' {Russian} & 'As you make your bed, so must you lie in it'.


    Basically, it means karma.


    My Name is Earl
    A TV show that centers on the laws of Karma

    Earl: You know the kind of guy who does nothing but bad things and then wonders why his life sucks? Well, that was me. Every time something good happened to me, something bad was always waiting round the corner: karma. That's when I realized that I had to change, so I made a list of everything bad I've ever done and one by one I'm gonna make up for all my mistakes. I'm just trying to be a better person. My name is Earl.



    I find this show symbolic in so many ways, not the least the different characters and how they interact. The acceptance of all the differenting aspects of the psyche. A bit raunchy in its presentation but what the hell, we are all adults.



    I am not an Earl so much in the way described above but from 61 years of experience{s} I have learned this law is both natural, and fits. And being a 'natural law' it naturally fits with the philosophy of dreams which reflect the true natural self. All a part of the path to Individuation.
