I've been reviewing the dreams I've posted and your responses over the past couple of years, and it strikes me how spot-on the I Ching you threw for me was, how my understanding of it has deepened, and just how incredibly much I picked at and couldn't leave myself alone!
I see in how I worked with my dreams, how I couldn't accept my painful feelings, always picking, always fussing, always asking, couldn't this be different?  Easier?  Gentler?  and seeing clearly now, that ...no, not really, some experiences are simply painful and difficult and nothing to be done about it but sink into them and feel them.
I've listened to countless guided meditations, CD's, videos all visioning stuff and pushing and more and more I feel the deep inner call to stop trying to control every damned thing and just breathe, be still.  Trust.

More and more often, I practice simply being with my dreams and the characters, rather than any dialogue or endless questioning, picking, prodding....controlling, grasping, processing, trying to understand, lol.

I recently started online dating and even had some fun with a dream.  I didn't try to understand it, analyze it, anything...I shared it with a complete stranger online and asked, "what do you think?" and...you could have knocked me over with a feather when he got it, got the meaning of the dream and responded playfully.  He's the sweetest, kindest, easiest to be with prospect so far, even :

All this to say...as always and again, Tony, thank you for your work.  It means so much to me and has made a difference in my life.  I appreciate you, your site, your forum, and how freely you share information, your experiences, and your wisdom.

Warmest wishes,
Rain

Rain - Thank you from my heart.

A translation of The Tao Te Ching my youngest son Quentin did says:

The Dao that is defined ceases to be the Dao. 
The name that you can speak is not the actual name. 
The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth. 
Naming is the matrix of ten thousand different things. 
Those who live desireless know the mystery at its heart. 
Those who live desiring know the separate, surface parts.

“More and more often, I practice simply being with my dreams and the characters, rather than any dialogue or endless questioning, picking, prodding....controlling, grasping, processing, trying to understand, lol.”

Words are the things that get in the way of entering into the dreams wordless communication. But once you have received the communication, then we can play with words.
