I dreamt that I was inside of a large shopping mall and in the huge cathedral-like hallways a group of huge birds of prey were on a rampage. The people were screaming and running for cover in the shops but I went out to see for myself. A giant eagle sped by, close. i could feel the wind on my face. I turned and saw a falcon flying high overhead, its wingspan darkening the ground where I stood, blocking the light from through the skylights. I spun again, ready to flee the hallway and saw a huge and majestic owl flying straight for me. Instead of running, I looked in its eyes and I swear that for a moment i felt some kind of connection. I put out my arm and the owl landed on it. I looked in its eyes in wonder. From the shops I could see the people staring in disbelief. I was as surprised at my own behavior and success as them. How had I known it would land? How had I known it would be a friend and not a dangerous foe? With it is as my guardian I walked down the sunlit hallway...

n Just as the powers of the Earth must be defended, so, by analogy,
must all mythic, religious and spiritual wealth or power be protected against
hostile forces or against possible intrusion by the unworthy. Hence the familiarity of the ‘keeper of the treasure’ in legends: almost invariably, this guardian is a
griffin or dragon, or else a warrior endowed with superhuman powers. In temples,
the idea of defence is implicit in the spatial organization and confirmed by the
disposition of the walls, the doors and towers. In the Far East, the guardians are
usually fabulous monsters. In Western countries, the same function may be performed by the figures inscribed on doorways. From the psychological point of
view, guardians symbolize the forces gathered on the threshold of transition
between different stages of evolution and spiritual progress or regression. The
‘guardian of the threshold’ must be overcome before Man can enter into the
mastery of a higher realm.
