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.

    Elaine Pagels, the Gnostic Gospels & the Feminine

    It was early on in my journey that I was introduced to Elaine Pagels and the Gnostic Gospels. Due largely to her studies and writing on these 'other gospels' I was able to quickly grasp the concept of metaphorical 'transformations' and, at the same time reconcile that knowledge with my early religious 'indoctrination' in the Christian myth. It was Campbell who first pointed me to the Gnostic teachings and when I started my research it was Pagels who came to my attention. It pretty much follows my other experiences of 'chance' encounters with teaching sages {synchronistic events?}, especially since
    during those early years the internet was not yet the easily attainable resource and the vast reserve of information we have today. During those years sorting through the limited resources and determining what was 'truth' and what was biased ideology was still very much left to chance discovering of materials {books/audio books} purchased from a bookstore. Pagels led the way in disseminating and communicating what has become accepted scholarly 'science'. Today Pagels is one of the 'go to' sources, having become an icon in televised media {Learning Channel, Discovery Channel, PBS, etc}. She has even been a guest on the Colbert Report {the link in red will take you to the 6 minute Colbert video} where she skillfully leads Stephen Colbert through the various possibilities of the life of Jesus despite Colbert's skillful comedic playfulness which has made him so popular {if you didn't know Colbert is the opposite of his character in his show}. PBS featured her in their well presented documentary From Jesus to Christ, their investigation of the various possibilities of life of Jesus. I have created several pages over the years featuring his works including Matthew, Mark, Luke and ....Thomas, an interview with Pagels back in 2001, and The Lost Teachings of Jesus, a page I designed in 2005. A great page with a catalog of Pagels many works including videos is these things inside.

    As for reconciling the Gnostic Jesus with the dogma I was taught when I was young, the introduction to the Gnostic teachings gave me a whole new perspective of Jesus that felt right, not one that left questions that could not be objectively answered but one that 'intuitively' fit. Today when I speak of my spirituality, and I do often when I believe it can influence, Jesus is still the example but in metaphorical references that fit with the spiritual concepts of 'going inward' and experiencing for myself a 'death and resurrection', psychologically. In this view his death on the cross makes all the sense in the world. As does my own.

    The power of the feminine. Pagels is one of many feminine influences in my journey, along with Marion Woodman, Jean Houston and Jean Raffa {I have contact with Jean through Twitter}. It does seem feminine influence was scripted to be a part of my journey, there being so many feminine experiences along my path. Not the least of which was the life shaping experience of being raised by a mother and living with three sisters. I have begun to question whether this whole matter of the feminine influence as some how being scripted. Being a true extrovert I've lived an introverted life. The learning experiences with the feminine perhaps is indeed intentional, abiding by the concept Jung suggested was the intent of the natural psyche from the beginning, that of achieving wholeness for the human psyche. The concept sounds very plausible to me and the experiences definitely fit with the concept. And to support it all, it all seems to fit. Naturally and intuitively.
