    In keeping with the 'night' theme, here is "The Starry Night" by Vincent Van Gogh, 1889. "I dream my painting, then I paint my dream." ~ Vincent. Here is a Wikipedia link for background about Van Gogh: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_van_gogh

    If this were my dream, I am impressed by the small church (house of God) in the bottom center of the dream, which is overwhelmed by the the starry night sky, the darkness which lies over everything, but within the dark are complexes represented by bright points and balls of light. Look into the darkness for the light, is the message I get. As with the church, the rest of the village, the people, i.e., consciousness, is overshadowed by the darkness of the unconscious. The swirling motion suggest to me that everything is constantly dynamically changing.

    beautiful. here is a link to the song 'vincent' by don mclean. hearing this song, although it doesn't speak exclusively to "The Starry Night", always makes me feel like i am 'inside' this painting somehow.. i hope you enjoy it. http://youtu.be/oxHnRfhDmrk

    Roy, That's a nice addition to this dream, and most of the images in the video are by Van Gogh. Thanks!

    If this were my dream, I would see myself as the dark, sinewy, angular tree in the foreground. Although I am "foremost" in the dream, I also feel remote from the scene in the background: it is swirling, dynamic, even brilliant--the rounded shapes vs. my contorted ones. The human element---the town, with its lights and church and all the warm cottages, feels out of reach to me.

    If this were my dream, the heavens large round orbs remind me of the myriad of tumors recently removed from my body. In a way, its all I can "see" -they are the points of light in a dark night - but they also light up the landscape so I can see the connection between my greater, heavenly, divine self, and the human form I take in this body represented by the town and church steeple below. Difficulties represented by the dark shape cutting into the sky are "natural course" ie. trees just growing, but provoking change. And I see the stars forming a yin-yang in the sky, foreshadowing a health and balance that will be attained, within myself. Ironically, I recently saw this painting in NYC and bought a postcard of it, which is mounted on my monitor.

    Mardi, I have an Aha around the jagged tree in the foreground representing the natural course of things. If it were my dream, I would see them as historical events that arise out of or in play with my personality, or ego--hence their position in the foreground (or surface). I must grapple with them as they provoke change, often trying to prevent my exploration into the essential qualities (both human and divine) at the core, or center. This shift in my work with this dream---from isolated observer (the tree in foreground) in my projection above, to one who dives beneath the surface---is a pattern I've been working with in Diamond Heart, which also fits with a picture of "the sky with diamonds." Thank you.
