Sleep is a pathless labyrinth,
Dark to the gaze of moons and suns,
Through which the colored clue of dreams,
A gossamer thread, obscurely runs.
Clark Ashton Smith
Well, yesterday it was back to work, and I must say, it felt good to have my train back again. I swear, I will never complain about the 'N' train again. I learned such a valuable lesson. The train may be slow and crowded, but it carries me back and forth to work without my having to catch a bus to get to it. It is so very true when they say 'You never know what you have until you lose it.'
I wasn't even going to mention this, but I wanted to tell you about a dream I had last night I dreamed I was lost in a maze-like structure like some huge apartment building. I was trying to find my way home and traveling from room to room trying to make my way. Each door opened to somebody's apartment, but it didn't seem bother them to have me walking through. Some even tried to get me to say for a bit by offering me food and rest.
Several times I found myself reaching a dead end and having to turn around. Once inside the maze one must frequently change course and retrace our steps to find the correct route. For many, finding oneself lost in a maze can be frightening and confusing. Usually when one dreams of being lost in a maze it indicates a feeling of being lost or trapped in real life, but I didn't have any of those feelings. I wasn't afraid at all. In fact, I found myself looking forward to opening each door and finding out what was behind it. I don't see it as a 'nightmarish' dream in any way. In fact, I found this dream as symbolic of my life and the many paths I have followed on my journey to called my life.
Mazes are traditional symbols of religion, representing mankind's journey back to the Divine. They are a symbol of life, and dreams about mazes can be indicative of working with your Higher Self. I am finding it quite ironic that I should have this dream now as I find myself coming full circle by incorporating my Pagan beliefs with my early Christian trainings. In my opinion,this dream had much to do with my unconscious telling me that I must have faith and trust in the signs that I am being shown in my waking life, making my choices accordingly. After all, it was a dream that saved my life many years ago. One day I will share that one with you.
Have you ever had a powerful, life-changing dream?
