Someone's Secret Meditation Spot

I tried hard before sleeping to program myself to realize I was in a dream. I have heard of various techniques like looking at your hand. So I told myself over and over - look at your hand and remember you are in a dream, then you can do anything with it.

I was exploring a sunny forest with my dear old friend David, as we used to do when we were teen agers up in Oregon. We were our contemporary aging selves in the dream and the feeling was more like northern California, Mendocino County perhaps.

We heard helicopters approaching (but never saw them) and for some reason we decided it was best to not be seen. I lead the way to beneath a huge pine tree. It was growing out of a large flattish but up sloping rock. Though we were in deep nature and nothing man-made was originally there the rock was now covered in a huge piece of heavy translucent whitish plastic sheeting. The thick industrial stuff.

Under the enormous tree the branches no longer produced pine needles so there was this open cathedral feeling of being inside a space. The bare branches grew out horizontally from the tree trunk at massive gravity defying lengths. It was really nice in hear.

As I climbed up the slope of this rock, slipping and sliding a bit on the plastic sheet, I came to a crude little seat. It was made of two chucky, but milled boards - a 16 x 16x3" one for the seat, and a bit smaller taller one for the back rest. This back rest was leaning against the lowest branch which was only about a foot off of the rock.
I instantly thought of it as a meditation seat.

Suddenly all the plastic was gone and as David climbed up behind me I probably said something like "look a perfect little meditation place". I noticed a large strange red clump of crystals next to the seat. I picked them up and felt their heft in my hand. Beautiful weird crystals that I had never seen before. Suddenly there were many different types of crystals all laid out around the seat. They had just appeared in the moment I had looked away.

Wow. We were excited by this, but as a new reality started appearing here it became apparent that this was someones active space. I walked about 10 feet over to the main trunk of the tree. It had one of those burned out hollows in it, and looking inside I saw someones possessions stashed in it, down a few feet below the level of the rock. It looked like a plastic garbage bag, and some other things yet what I remember was one or two small stuffed animals.

I suddenly had the feeling we shouldn't be there, that we should respect this space, and I regretfully put the red crystal I had been holding back down near the seat.
Then I woke up. But I didn't want to.
