I found myself in a realm of dream, outside in the park close to my home. It had, so suddenly occured to me that I was dreaming, and on this discovery, I decided Egypt was a worthy destination. Unsure exactly, how to get there, as certainly, Egypt is miles away and, surely I would wake up before getting there by foot, I had simply decided in a calm way, to allow myself to naturally flow in whatever way would take me to my desired destination. And just as a river, I felt my body gently guided.
Just like the flow that guides us in the realm of the awake,
So too does it flow within the realm of dream,
So too, guiding our way,
But ever so quicker,
In the worlds of sleep.
Now in a very short instant, the grass around me had completely transformed into a savannah, this occured, just as in the realm of awake, when one momment it was lunch, and suddenly it was 8. I was awed to find temples from around the globe towered around me. From the Myan to the Egyptian, with bright, vibrant, neon-coloured signs flashing around them.
As if, I were part of a giant cultural gathering, and all these temples, were actually different cultures of people.
I seemed to be in some form of carnival, and these temples were main attractions,
Like in every day life, celebrities and super models. I always had felt these sacred places were centers of spiritual important, as oposed to the tourist attraction they were being displayed as. Just as I feel are people, spirits of divinity, oposed to objects of society.
I decided to begin exploring these sights, as if I were exploring the many psyches of the mind. The interior of the first temple I explored looked strangely like a regular, modern house hold, with a living room, television, kitchen and such, as if this place had been made someone's home, unlike one would expect of a house of the gods. Perhaps this temple symbolized the regular person, addicted to comfort and security, unaware of their goddness, and divine beauty. This temple was not what I wanted to expirience, so I left it behind me, in the distance.
This too I did in the realm of awake, deciding to leave comfort & security behind me, to follow my dreams.
And appeared before me, in the distance, a tall figure, wearing an ibis mask, white in color. I recognized this entity as the Egyptian scribe Thoth, keeper of wisdom, teacher of the gods. He looked at me for a moment, and without words, I felt he was meaning for me to follow, as he took off in a new direction. I followed in the trail he left, until arriving at his temple. As I entered, I was shocked to find it was like a haunted house, littered with faux skeletons and monsters, with loud, scary music playing. Darkness surrounded me, and although the decorations seemed fake, I swore from the pitch blackness, a very real, awful creature was waiting to murder me. Although terrified, I was determined to continue, and so through the darkness, uncertainty and horror, I quickly sprinted.
And unlike I thought, the awful thing I was so afraid of, never even showed up.
And to the basement I arrived, flooded with light, I found strange, advanced or alien technology, that some how, felt incredibly familiar. One of these devices, looked like a crystal, blue in color, hanging from the ceiling, and hooked up to some wires. As I touched this device, I felt like it was something I remembered. I turned around, where Thoth was suddenly standing before me. Between his hands, he shuffled a deck of playing cards, before lovingly, handing them to me. Although the gesture simple and without words, it felt significant, as if handed to me, some kind of psychic tools.
Suddenly I was outdoors, still lucid, and surrounded by my vivid dreamscape, I decided the heavens were the next on my list to explore. I was abit daunted by this task, as usually, I would fall once reaching a certain height, but for some reason, there were unusual metal bits floating in the sky, which somehow felt related, to the cards at my side. I was able to use these as anchours to achieve a good height, until I felt confident enough on my own to take flight. I felt I was flying upwards for quite some time, so long in fact, my dreamscape began to fade. And this, is when I became awake.
Just as we do, in the realm of awake, ever reaching upwards, until we become truly awake, using the cards we are given, in order to arrive.
And to you, I hold out my own cards, in hopes someday,
Perhaps to you,
They will also be useful.
