One of the best of things is good breakfast conversation and after long deep sleep what better to discuss than the dreams of the night before? Dreams are both mysterious and revealing and the many different systems of interpretation can each throw some light or trigger us into reminiscences or sharing of hopes, fears and experiences. Eleusis is an excellent place for dream work as the closeness to nature induces good sleep and the magical atmosphere inspires imagery.

In one of his essays - can't remember which - Freud suggests that we dream because we do not want to wake up. The dream extends sleep and is a kind of prevarication - a bit like watching a movie rather than doing one's homework. Elsewhere he talks about them being either "wish fulfilment" or, on the other hand, the attempt to master things that overwhelm us. I can see some sense in all three ideas, though they point in different directions, suggesting that not all dreams are doing the same thing.

My dreams were very powerful last night. Very emotional but unfortunately as incoherent as ever, leaving me feeling dark but none the wiser as to meaning. All goes towards healing though i think!!?

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…

Wasted

My sons childhood friend was brutally murdered on Friday night. It is hard to believe that it happened. As he left a Birmingham pub a number of young people surrounded him. One of them stabbed him in the heart and he bled to death. He was twenty six years old. I can't get it out of my thoughts, why would any one be that cruel. Why as humans do we do this to each other. I've spent most of the weekend comforting my son, he went on Holliday with Daniel the friend that lost his life, two weeks…
