THE NATURE OF DREAMS points to the innate clarity of the natural, or resting state of mind. Emanations of mind in dreams are ornamentation of primordial or unconditioned awakened mind.
We have been enjoying a remarkable experience of discovery and awakening in the Dream Koan Group! As we engage in the imagery of our shared dreams we are able to experience and embody the arising of the dharma in its purest form. Saṃbhogakāya, the subtle body of limitless form, and the movement of Tzu-jan; the burgeoning forth of things of themselves. Unencumbered by the duality of ego-mind, fresh and clear, pregnant with possibility and juicy with nourishment we plunge into the indivisible basic space of pristine awareness together. When engaged with one another as a Dream-Sangha we coalesce into the transpersonal reality of One Being-ness in the ship of dreams as our vessel. True, that for each individual there arises a personal cache of feeling-tones and imagery that constellates one’s personal experience, the undeniable reality is that we are all drinking from the communal well as we quench our thirsts for inner meaning. It is a truly amazing experience!
Please join us on this amazing journey as often as you can. As with all things, time ripens the fruits of this practice.
