This morning, in the predawn, I have been outside to smoke, as is my custom. In the predawn light I could see our latest visitor not more than a few feet from me. It was a baby bunny hopping about quietly, calmly and unconcerned by me. I could not assimilate his whole shape, but his fluffy white tail caught the eye. I knew which end was which. I am a little concerned for him as daylight dawns. But maybe he has a good strategy, being so close to the house might offer him some protection. In the twilight between wake and sleep, many of us drift and to some this is very nice. We may not be sure what is the dreamer and what is the dreamed.
That which speaks to each of us varies and that may be due to our upbringing, its attendant prejudices and our own predilection. In the video previous there is talk of THE spirit dreaming the world into being. In the Toltec tradition this is called Nagal. As the stages of the dreaming progress the Nagal divides itself into the dreamers like the barramundi and the dream goes on. The dreamers dream in the rest of the manifested universe. In a human sense we have spirit, soul and physical plane being; the nagal, the dreamer and the dreamed. The dreamer pretty much corresponds to the idea of the soul. It is the real you, not the social being full of angsts. Thus, to listen to the dreams of your dreamer is to dream true to you own soul. To me this sounds good, it has a lovely feel to it and it speaks to me. Learning to dream true is to become a fully ensouled being in which you are en rapport with your soul. I don’t know about you but as a goal, this isn’t so bad. Learning to dream true is a part of the way to freedom and liberation. In a sense this means giving over the dreamed to the dreamer. One could say hand over the steering wheel of your car, your vehicle, to your soul. If the dreamed is a bit of a control freak it will be more than a little prone to back seat driving.
At this the twilight between night and day, I offer this up.
Learn to dream true, so that the dreams of the dreamer are made real, hence to climb the “ladder” up to the spirit.
So that in time the nagal, the dreamer and the dreamed can be as one and at one.
