Again with the crazy dreams...

Last night I dreamt that the Dalai Lama and I were in a yurt. I know this is not at all accurate, but in the dream he could not touch a human. It had something to do with being part divinity and part human, if he were to touch human flesh than he would sacrifice his divinity and become all human. There was a lot of wind and danger outside – I think there were people after us. Whatever was happening, I was a target, and he was protecting me. He reached out and took my hands; I was horrified because it meant he had made a huge sacrifice to offer me comfort. I don’t remember what we said exactly, but we had some kind of discussion about it. I woke up before whoever was attacking actually got to us.

I have no idea.

He looked nothing like the Dalai Lama except kinda for the clothes – although, he might have been dressed like the Avatar. He was much younger than the Dalai Lama and much older than Ang. But in the dream I knew he was the Dalai Lama, so I guess I should stop trying to figure out who he was and just go with what I thought in the dream. I had just started George Harrison’s autobiography, maybe that’s why he was in my thoughts were heading in that direction. Oh – I bet it also had something to do with the clothes Toaster and I bought this weekend.

I will have to show you on Saturday - we each got a cute wrap skirt. But the store was a very hippyesque store. So there were saffron colors and others of that ilk and the styles were what I would associate with people who sport Free Tibet bumper stickers. :D

Ah, I see the connection. I love that color myself, but if I wear it I look like I have a disease. I paint it on walls instead.

Can't wait to see ya'll Saturday!

Dalai Lama by way of Superman II. I can dig that! :-)

Oh my gosh- it is rather like the plot of Superman II. That makes me giggle..

Are you stressing about something? This reads like you need some major comforting.

Oh, and I LOVE that you know what a Yurt is.

I know someone who is living in one! Or something very similar. :)
A few years ago I saw an Extreme Homes kind of show that featured one plus I've seen them in movies.

I think I have the dream kind of figured out!! I think it's me struggling with a spiritual path versus a "human" path. I'm wondering if I'm feeling guilty that I'm not doing as much this year as last year - like RCIA withdrawal or something. Or I'm feeling guilt that I'll be traveling for part of Easter week and will miss Palm Sunday, the Wednesday Seder Dinner, Holy Thursday & Good Friday at my church (and probably in general). Something like that. I think I just mentally grabbed a spiritual figure I respected to make it more dramatic in my head - and the idea is that *I* am reaching out and holding on to something corporeal and it's blocking my own spiritual growth. How's that for deep? Or crazy? Can't decide which!! LOL!

Ohh... that is deep! :D

Last year you were building a new spiritual path.... this year you are simply starting to walk that path. Makes sense that you might feel like you are doing less this year.

As far as traveling during Easter week.... I'm sure god will forgive you. You are a good and faithful person. God knows that and knows you love him. I feel that faith and belief is what is in your heart and soul and the fact that you have put this much effort into your faith and feeling into missing church counts for something.

What Sarah said.

I'd certainly like to think the Dalai Lama would make a sacrifice like that if the need arose (overlooking the fact he can touch people in RL).

Miss you!
