Dream Wisdom

For all the dreams I share on this blog, I have many thousands more. Sometimes these dreams come with elaborate plots and details. Other times, someone gives me a message, or I awake with a phrase or sentence in my head. This morning I was riding the exercise bike — where I often get waking downloads — and it occurred to me to share a few of the dream quotes. In no particular order:

“In perfect love and perfect trust, perfect timing is a must.”

“Delay leads to delight.”

“Wherever you are is where you live. Right here, now, you’re living, so this is where you live even if you’re only visiting.”

While biking, I started listening to Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces. I read this book in college and also watched the Bill Moyers interview series with Joseph Campbell, based on this book. I saw that series in the first few months after my 1998 traumatic brain injury, and it helped me view my entire recovery through the lens of hero’s journey and shamanic initiation. Now I have the book on Audible, and I love how much the narration makes the stories and dreams come alive.

Back in April 2019, I had an elaborate and life changing dream. At the end of the dream I met Joseph Campbell in the Meijer Sculpture Gardens. He gave me very personal advice, but he also said one other thing, which I could not for the life of me recall. It seemed important. This morning while biking, I heard Joseph Campbell (as the Audible reader) say:

“Birth is the only cure for death.”

I almost fell off the bike when I realized this is what he told me in that pivotal April 2019 dream. As the collective faces so much change and ongoing pressure to change, these dream memos seem helpful to share. Perhaps they’ll speak to you, as well.

  1. Thank you for sharing these quotes,especially the perspective you took about the heroes journey. I’ve been laid up with a knee/leg injury since Juky 1st. I have an mri tomorrow to see exactly what’s going on. Today I’m in so much pain I just want to cry. Then I read your post here and it felt soothing. Much love

  2. Your waking downloads sound like Mary Poppin’s talking.   Like her, you are a bit magical, strong, and filled with lessons about life.

    • LOL, yes, I suppose I am a bit like Mary Poppins. My sister and I were OBSESSED with that movie as kids. We had the soundtrack, did our own choreography and everything. Good times.

  4. My big picture, society-related response is: we’d darn well better have something new (birthed) ready to replace what’s falling apart (dying), or we’ll be left with a much rockier road to the sky. So create, create, and don’t watch the old burn.
