Title: The word MANUSCRIPT
Post by: Richard on May 21, 2012, 03:55:33 PM
A voice says to me in my meditation: "No manuscript has survived".
Would anyone have any idea what this might signify?
I'm a retired librarian who worked with antique books.
I have always thought that one's life could be symbolized by a diary to which one adds one's signature at the moment of death.
I'd be most grateful for any input.
(P.S. My dreams also tend to be one liners, or single images)

Richard – This is a difficult one to give any interpretation for. Partly because your life work has been with books and so you have a very different set of associations than the general public. But also because the description is so short and words are the things I have to work with.

But obviously the sentence has to do with the end, the death of something you have been involved with. Had you been thinking or wondering about death?

A manuscript is a work of someone and can be very special and worth preserving, so the non survival also suggests a great loss – perhaps many times over.

I think it might be worth getting behind the dream by using http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/practical-techniques-for-exploring-your-dreams/#TalkingAs
