"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

The last few days I have been at it again, stripping away
the masks. I was depressed and there were no stories
running around in my head. It was a new phenomena. As
I think I said in an earlier blog post my mind has quieted
lately and that has been a joy. But here I was, depressed
and quiet. Weird. I stopped every time I wanted to make
a story of the depression and just hung with the silence.
Then my friend Tara recommended I sit and ask what the
depression wanted to teach me. What a strange experience
that was. I sat and wrote and felt like I was channeling. In
fact the voices of my ancestors, the female side of my lineage,
were talking to me, telling me their fears for me. They were
close to old fears of mine so they were easy to take on. The
other strange thing that happened was that as soon as I realized
I was being projected on (I mean, supposedly) the depression
completely lifted, gone. Wow. Now that is to me all the validation
I needed that I was on the right track. Cool. You never know
what stripping away the masks is going to look like.
