A couple of dream symbols were synchronizing with each other. In one I saw beautiful trinkets made of gold in the cupboard. When I tried to touch it vanished from perspective. I have also had dreams of buying gold earlier. My tryst with Gold has been shameful. I have taken (stole) gold from the house and I have sold it to spend it on my needs. I also have wishes to buy gold for my lady friends. Analyzing the dreams about Gold that I had, I strip Gold out of its physical purity, rape its value from monetary commoditization and negate the heart of is symbolism, and degrade its sadism to an absolutism of disgust. I know that the dreams about Gold are a condensation of images. Yes Gold symbolizes authority, power, purity and royalty. For me it’s dirt that can buy me booze, have fun with women and trash that I can gift for a pure feeling of love.
Another perplexing dream that I had was a photo holder. In it there were many photos. One was that of Pope Francis himself. I don’t personally have anything against him and I am pleased with his humanistic approach, his concern for the subaltern and his ecumenical reaching out to a healing of communities. But I am in no way religious, and I am an existential -nihilist -agnostic. Along with the Pope, I saw pictures of two canonized Saints from Kerala. I honestly don’t know their names. I have seen the canonized Saints from the asylum (run by Catholics) where I spend a brief period of time. I was abused physically and mentally, forced to attend stupid idolatrous Rosary prayers. What puzzles me is the reminder of them in my dream. Is the dream a displacement of substitution of my hatred for Catholicism as a perverted unbiblical theology which canonizes saints and worships Mary who is no virgin? I have hatred for the Catholicism that is prevalent in Kerala. Why should I stand up and draw the sign of the cross when the Lord’s Prayer is being read? Well I rubbish canonization and my spat against Catholic canards continue Philosophically and Culturally.
