Holy

Something so beyond the limitations of our own small personality enters us and leaves its imprint. A place in which we meet oneself and or another person deeply and passionately or a way that transforms one in some way. An experience of the holy suddenly allows you to know yourself as an intricate part of all life and the cosmos.

 Example: Then, during the walking contemplation prior to the very last exercise – how dramatic can the unconscious be? What timing! – I began to feel an extension of my awareness. I could feel my existence streaming back through all time, like a river existing in all the past. But my river was flowing through my family. In some strange paradoxical way I was my whole past family stretching back for hundreds of years.

The holy is also common action that we take for granted that are actually the foundations of life on Earth. Being the foundations of our existence they are seen as holy by our dreams self – such common things such as sex, eating, water, caring for our children, giving of ourselves, are all holy. The church treats eating and drinking as holy by making it a sacrament – disguising the fact that every act of eating is eating the body of God/Life, and makes sex also a sacrament by the marriage rite.

Example: I remember that I was rather lonely and sad for no particular reason and I was going on a date with myself to the planetarium.  In the dark planetarium, the stellar night sky covered the dome like a real night sky.  There was a grand zooming out process.  Starting with a person in a house to his city, to his country, continent, the earth, the solar system, our Milky Way galaxy, and to Local Group (the cluster 10), to supercluster and at last to the observable universe.  Watching the earth and our galaxy disappearing into a point as the zoom gets larger into the cosmos, I was overcome with a surging emotion in my chest.  Instead of deepening my despair, a grand sense of relief overwhelmed me, a sense of gratitude, a sense of the Holy.  It is hard to describe or explain.  Opening the knots in my heart, tears surged up because…  it was so beautiful.  I was infinitely alone yet infinitely not.  Coming out to the streets of NYC, everything and everyone was a wonder.  We are utterly insignificant in the scheme of things.  And I was elevated.  The Earth is so beautiful and our lives are so precious in its fragility. Quoted from Grace Park, Honors Seminar Spring 2003 – A Dream within a Dream – Modern Physic and Myth

I had a dream that someone who I didn’t know was taking me to an important place. I had looked down at my arms & noticed how extremely tan I was, like i use to get as a kid. Then as we made it to this little house I saw 3 little naked toddler boys walking to the house. They looked like old drawings of angels but they didn’t have wings & all 3 were identical with blond curly hair, light skin & blue eyes. Then I went into small house & this person brought me up a short stair case & to the room on the right. It was extremely bright in the room & there were mirrors everywhere. The walls & floors were white & there were bars of lights everywhere. I covered my eyes & ran out of the room to the steps & I got very upset with this person. I told them I wasn’t holy enough to be in the room & then they said that God wanted me to see this room & be in this room. Then I was sitting in the room & my coworker Peter brought me a credit card to run. It was a $23.00 check.

    Hi – It is important that you read https://dreamhawk.com/forums/index.php?topic=529.msg1472#msg1472
    Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practicing what is described in – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson or http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/

    Laura – An important place in dreams represent a place or condition in which you can learn about the secret places of your life, and probably change or grow. See https://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/growth-of-something/

    The tanned you may refer to things you felt at that age which have led you to this part of your life’s experience. The little angels – well angels do not need and never have needed wings. Artists put them on figures to symbolise that they could move through space.

    Another misconception is that angels are particular sex’s, “Watching my sleeping angel self. The angel self also seemed to be neither male nor female.” “I saw another figure at the end of the bed. It was an angel-neither male nor female. It had long, wavy golden hair and white robe.”

    So you had literally moved to a holy place, but you felt you were not worthy of it. But God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them.

    So in fact we are all in the image of God and are blessed. Nothing was said about being unworthy or sinners.

    So you were blessed again by being in the room chosen by God.
