A Thinker's Guide To…
The Beginning: The Dream
Today my friend, we are going to consider what it means to drink in the mysteries of our heart, particularly when they appear to us through messages from the unconscious.
In this particular dream, I am in Scotland with a group of travelers. The scene is set in a moody bar. When the bartender asks what I want, I confidently answer – “Give me a drink of my people”. It tastes like complexity.What does it mean, I wonder?
A dream, much like visions and any other kind of story, offers a myriad of interpretations. I invite you to dive into this dream, to make sense of it, for you and for me. You see, each taste of the drink in which the dreamer sips represents a specific wisdom.
Drink when you feel ready.
Drink even if you do not.
