Recently I met a man who counts the days he has lived on planet earth. He is in his seventies and claims to have lived 30362 days. In his journal he writes: 30362: one more day to live: one more day nearer for a physical death: one more day nearer to eternal life.
The New Year 2016 gave me a dream. The dream had two sequences, one was, I was having cheerful bonhomie with my old Students who were Indonesian Sindhis. In the other part of the dream, I was asked by the Principal of an International School where I worked to sell tickets belonging to the school fair. In the dream I was able to sell all the tickets.
Indonesian Sindhis are very affluent. Seeing my old, rich Indian students is perhaps a sign of money to come. My ability to sell all the tickets shows that I will be able to accomplish all tasks easily.
In college we were steadfast lovers. After completing college, she ditched me. I till today don’t know the reason why. Since she lived in an island in India, far away from me, I used to make discreet inquiry into her whereabouts. All my searching resulted in blind alleys. Then a friend of mine told me that she died in an accident. I was shocked and wounded. I tired dreaming about her but again luck was negative. Yesterday, I had a dream about her. I was in her house, sitting beside her, holding her hands and talking to her sweet nothings. The dream was very therapeutic for me and healed all my wounded feathers. One surprising thing about the dream was I had also my nephew sitting with us on the sofa. It’s the first time, I am seeing live and dead people. I interpret the dream as symbolizing wish fulfillment. The Child my nephew could be the purity of our love.
I am always worried about having money to go to the Philippines to meet a dear friend of mine and also to attend an interview. Yesterday night, I had a strange dream. I dreamed of my uncle telling me that he will sponsor my tickets and money for expenses. Then I happened to be washing my dirty feet in my Uncle’s bathroom. No doubt my uncle has been a benefactor to the family. I believe that the symbol of my Uncle was a condensation of winning a lottery ticket. Washing my dirty feet is getting rid of worry and tension.
Psychoanalyst Jacque was right when he said that the unconscious is structured like language. It’s true we dream in pictures mostly. But today I had a dream of words and I was reading my own blog article. The dream called me a bastard existentialist and made me ashamed of the fact of having failed to woo countless women. Yes, I have been a Casanova failure. The dream also pointed me of being in an exotic location in South East Asia, in Bali, in Indonesia. Yes I am nurturing the wish to be in Bali and I hope that the dream would be a manifestation of wish fulfillment.
I had a strange and complex dream. I am an animal grower. It was night time and I was sitting beside a window and to my surprise I saw an Elephant. When I went out I realized it was wild and it was very agitated and troubled. I soothed and merged it with the other elephants I had in the pack. Then I saw a mother calf playing with her baby elephant. Then I saw a Mother Bear playing with her baby.
In a dream I had, I saw two woodpeckers, one a male and the other a female. I became very excited about the dream I had. I anticipate that the dream is showing my future and that I will be able to meet me mate in Kuala Lumpur. I have been separated from her for many years. I also looked up the dream dictionary and found that seeing a woodpecker in a dream is sign of receiving good gifts. I hope my dream will materialize into fortunate tangibility.
Today early morn as the cock crowed I had a dream which strangely turned out to be premonitory. In the dream I was a college student taking an exam in literature and to my surprise the teacher supervisor grabbed my sheets before I could complete the exam. Later on in the day I happened to face a Skype interview and before the end of interview, Skype malfunctioned. Later on in an email, I was notified that my technological skills were not up to competency and so I was rejected with a polite good bye and good luck. This is one of my dreams that became synonymous with reality.
