Indian love and killer furbies

The first dream I remember walking around outside this old brick fortress. The setting was sort of post apocalyptic perhaps, but definitely great depression like. There was dirty people all around this fortress in tent camps. Well  I found this hole and asked someone who ws with me to check in it and make sure there wasn't anything of value. He checked and as he was checking, and Indian (Indian from India) teenager jumped in, snatched a book, some papers, and what appeared to be a large pink diamond shaped like a heart and started running out. So I chased after him. He threws some documents and papers into the fire. I snatched them out of the fire and continued to chase him.

He arrives at his part of the tent city where he hands this sacred book to the elder. At this point i'm really really curious whats in the book. Since I saved the other documents from certain doom in the fire the old man didnt force me to leave. As luck would have it those pieces i saved were actually really important to the book, so the man shared some of the information with me. It was a treasure map, but not one to normal treasure, but with a treasure in self. A way to use ones Chakras to open a door with in oneself to travel through dimensions. Then he got his extremely beautiful daughter to perform the ritual on me.

First the man handed her a vial of bright pink, oily substance which she dotted on the back of my right hand. I accidently rubbed some of the pink stuff on the guy next to me's clothes, and she reapplied it. Then she dotted the back of my right elbow, then the center of my chest, then my throat, then my forehead, then the back of my left elbow, then my left hand. I was asked to concentrate all of these areas into a door way in front of me. All the while i could hear the elder man chanting something he was reading from the book while the world started pulsing in with magical bright colors. Instead of leaving that plane it was like the girl who was putting these markings on me kept coming in complete focus. I could feel unconditional yearning, and a turmoil of boiling love inside my being for her.

Then the experience had stopped but the smitten aura was still encompassing me like warm water in a bath. I wanted her to be in my arms. I needed her to be in my arms. She invited me into her tent and we just sat down in the floor holding hands, and she offered me some food. It was a roasted pig and I was surprised because pigs were a really hard to find sort of food in the desperate times we were in. Then the dream fadded by my longing for her remained into the next dream, and even now.

-insert unchained melody here-

Then the next dream was rather odd. There was this magical furby that kept comming back to life and i kept killing it. Oh and the whole time the furby had a body like chuck norris. And my partner who was trying to kill it with me was bruce lee. I even put the furby in a headlock that i know he couldnt breathe in. Sob kept living tho. Then i woke up. Thinking, wtf was that all about.

The other dream was way more awesome to me so. I remembered more about it. That and i think i forgot about the second dream even tho its the one i just woke up from, simply because i used all my dream recall on the first dream allowing the second dream to slip away. Either way, i like the first one better.

How to Meditate

  1. Make time to meditate. Put aside atleast 10-20 minutes of time aside from your daily routine for meditation. The effects of meditation are evident when you meditate regularly, some like to meditate at the end the day by clearing their mind, and some prefer to find refuge in meditation in the middle of a busy day. Generally, however, the easiest time to meditate is in the morning, before the day tires your body out and gives your mind more to think about.
  2. Find or create a quiet, relaxing environment for meditation. It's especially important, when just begining, to avoid any obstacles to attention. Turn off any TV sets, phone or other noisy appliances. If you play music, make sure it's calm, repetitive and gentle, so as not to break your concentration. Meditating outside can be conducive, as long as you don't sit near a busy roadway or another source of loud noise.
  3. Sit on level ground. Sit on a cushion if the ground is uncomfortable. You don't have to twist your limbs into the half lotus or full lotus position or adopt any unusual postures. The important thing is to keep your back straight, as this will help with breathing later on.
  4. Relax everything, and keep searching for things that aren't relaxed. When you find them, (and you will), relax them. You may find that you can't relax them unless you adjust your posture so that you are better aligned, and that place doesn't need to work anymore. This commonly happens with muscles near your spine. You may also notice that you are twisted a little and need to straighten out. Little muscles in your face often keep getting tense, too.
  5. Let your attention rest on the flow of your breath. Listen to it, follow it, but make no judgments on it (such as "It sounds a little raspy...maybe I'm getting a cold?"). The goal is to allow the "chattering" in your mind to gradually fade away. Find an "anchor" to settle your mind.
  6. Silence your mind. Once you've trained your mind to focus on just one thing at a time, the next step is focus on nothing at all, essentially "clearing" your mind. This requires tremendous discipline but is the pinnacle of meditation. After focusing on a single point as described in the previous step, you can either cast it away, or observe it impartially and let it come and then go, without labeling it as "good" or "bad". Take the same approach to any thoughts which return to your mind until silence perseveres.

Imaginary friend of a schizophrenic

The series of dreams started with my awareness coming together in a baby delivery room. This makes sense because my woman and I will be having our first baby due July 21st. Anyways, in the dream, Heather wasnt having the baby we were just in there watching other woman have theirs. Then i decided to go explore this area and i woke up in a very large gymnasium where their was a bunch of children playing various sports. I seen some children wrestling, and because I was a wrestler myself I walked over and started talking. That dream faded and the next thing i know Heather and I were walking in the middle of some muddy looking field. This field had a wooden fence all the way around it. A few minutes into the walk I noticed we were walking on a farm. We came up to a really big white barn. There was a man in the barn loading up barrels with various types of farm things. In order to get from one side of the barn to the other, we had to navigate through a wooden labyrinth.. and It was nuts.

So I went back to sleep because I was still tired and had an amazing dream. The dream started out with some elaborate event thats just not really clear to me anymore. But in the dream, time rewound, and i realized that the elaborate thing that happened was the manifestation of a schizophrenic man (played by Jonah Hill) and then i realized that I was an imaginary friend of that schizophrenic man. I could see reality as it was in his mind and reality as it really was. In reality the "real" reality i didnt exist and Jonah Hill was a homeless schizophrenic. In his mind we were important business executive (spies perhaps) because i faintly remember an explosion in the first event. Anyways. The events would manifest as he found things on the road. He found a name womans name badge, and then I seen him change into that woman. At the same time though, he was still himself, the homeless crazy guy, and I was still the same imaginary being. Next thing I know we are in a corporate building walking up some white marble stairs and into glass and marble elevator. The elevator was huge with like 10 doors and buttler's guarding those doors. The buttons were made of gold and illuminated blue with the names of various corporate entities above the doors. We pressed alot of buttons and the elevator butlers didnt really seem to mind. Then i felt the elevator elevate to a floor. We got off the elevator and I realized we were on the Womens Cancer floor. Then I seen him signing into one of the computers with the badge and I walked into a lab to look at research. Then we walked into a dodecagonally shaped maroon velvet room that I couldnt get out of. Each side of the room had one button that open a really small elevator door, unlike the really large illuminated elevator from the previous elevator, these ones were really dark with only a few buttons. Then one of the doors opened up and a man walked out then into a hallway that appeared out of no where. I asked him before he got out of sight if the elevator would take me to the bottom floor. We got into the elevator and i pressed the button and we took off. It felt like we were free falling.  When we reached the bottom, the doors opened into the lobby and I was woken up by a guest arriving at my house.
