I heard short dreams from two people today. Dream snapshots, really, described in just a few sentences. Both captured so completely and so simply the situation of the dreamer, I marveled at their economy as much as their profundity. Both dreamers presented their dream to me as an object “out there.” When I asked each the standing question, “what part of you is this?” one dreamer almost instantly responded with that widening of the eyes I live for – that moment of deep understanding that comes before even the possibility of articulation. Oh, man – the ah-HA moment! The other dreamer’s dream did not yield its treasure so easily, but it did point the dreamer in a promising direction.
Write down your short, shorter, shortest dreams in your journal. They are like tiny diamonds, worthy of mining.
