May we see what we look at and know what we know, and do what needs to be done, oh may it be so, may it be even yet so, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, oh may it be so! Hallelujah! That's the best we have, its all we can do, just knowing what's what and offering the gifts that were there from the start, and letting that be, Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah, and letting that be, Hallelujah! We look for rewards, live for profit and gain, fear, greed and hatred our shame and our bane, and nothing to blame but our refusal to be who we are right here, right now, Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! The game is straight forward, do the best that you can, letting that be that, and doing the best we can with that, and with that, and with that, and with that... and letting that be that! Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Always doing the best we can with that! Hallelujah! What is so hard about that? There is nothing to it is there? It's just not what we have in mind, is it? And if we don't want it, that's all there is to it, we will never do it, will we? Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Picking our way through the torn and broken Hallelujahs! Looking out there for what is in here, we groan and bemoan the burden we hold dear having our way to spite The Way in willing what cannot be willed and rejecting what waits to be, Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Live but don't learn, look but don't see, strive but don't do what needs to be done and needs us to do it when it needs to be done how it needs to be done because it needs to be done is all there is to it Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Turning the light around turns everything with it restores right order puts all in place, waiting on our alignment Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! The orchestra is tuning up with no one to conduct. The dancers are dancing with none to direct. The players are playing but the game isn't set. And chaos is everywhere because none will sit and be still and know what they know and do what needs to be done, oh may it be so may it even yet be so! Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Oh may it be so! Hallelujah!
I have talked about things just popping into mind "out of nowhere," as jolts from the psyche to get our attention and nudge us into seeing what is happening in our life and how we might respond to it better than we are. A place the psyche has free rein and doesn't have to compete with ego-consciousness for our attention is in our sleep. Dreams are things that "pop into our mind," inviting us to decipher the messages and apply our understanding to our life. You might understand every dream as saying, "This is how things are in your life right now. What are you going to do about it?" To get the message, we have to listen to the dream. Look at the theme of the dream. What is it about? What is the drift? Is it a recurring dream over time? What stands out about the dream? Is it an object? A person? A scene? What associations can you make between the dream elements and your lived experience. How is "this" like "that"? Dreams of cars that won't stop, or planes crashing can be thought of as the dream over-dramatizing our tendency to be too much in control of what is happening in our life, suggesting that we need to step back a bit, ease up. Dreams of always loosing our pocketbook, or our wallet, can be suggesting that our identity is not firmly established, and we could do a better job of being an "I" in relationships with others. Dreams of flying with the birds could be saying that our ego is flighty and not firmly grounded, that our life is fantasy founded, and we are resisting growing up. Dreams of snakes could be making fun of our tendency to not trust ourselves to our environment or other people, always looking for "a snake in the grass." To get the good out of a dream, mine it for its symbols and see what associations they bring to mind. Pay particular attention to the emotions the dream arouses in you--both as a participant in the dream, and as the dreamer of the dream. Explore those emotions to see what that might reveal. Our dreams are one way psyche attempts to commune with us. The least we can do is pay attention!
