The Complete Book of Dreams and Dreaming Reviews
c2003. Well, I am not sure that this is as practical as it was lauded to be. I certainly did not find it easy to use and the interpretation - well! It is a big book comprising of 666 pages (any significance there?) so not a particularly quick guide. It is supposed to be a "serious" book but any pyschologist or pseudo pyschologist could use the same old tired self questioning and interpretation. Not a keeper. FWFTB: mental, snapshots, interpretation, communicate, understanding.
This book is not very convenient to use, but considering the wide subject, it's not an easy task. It's kind of like a dictionary of dreams, with different interpretations possible, including a spiritual one. I take it as a starting point if you want to try to learn more about your dreams and attempt to explore their meaning.
This morning I had an intriguing dream involving the Virgin Mary, and out of curiosity I took this book off my mom's shelf (where it's sat ever since she decided to quit reading it, about five years ago) and see what it had to say. I found her as a sub-entry of "Religious imagery", where she was said to symbolize "everything holy and everything woman". Which she does, but somehow it didn't satisfy me. I looked up some other things that had been involved in the dream - letters, priests, the color red - but nothing was satisfying.At least some of the time, it was because it attributed feelings to /me/ that I couldn't imagine feeling - for example, it said red symbolized strength, happiness, and sexuality. I think of it as the color of blood, royalty, and painful mercy (things that may not have such a connection in your mind). And priests are, apparently, "intuitive" people connected with higher, spiritual realms. I'm Catholic, I've more-or-less known several priests, and I don't feel that way about them. Their whole vocation exists for the senses - bringing the material Body of the person Christ to other material people; I don't see why that would require them to be more "intuitive" than anyone else.And there was the real problem. My religion sees everything, even ourselves, as a picture of God; a picture, but also to one degree or another, a thing in itself - you can feel the gilt metal or the rough wood of the frame, you can get the drying paint on your fingers. This book sees everything, even God or His Mother, as a hint at something in ourselves; but a ghostly kind of self, that you couldn't paint a picture of if you tried - at least not a picture more concrete than, for example, the phrase "everything woman and everything holy". The Catholic Church encourages awe at the Incarnation; this encourages awe about some unknown spiritual realm of the self. I'm not used to that anymore - I haven't been for about five years.So, in short, I couldn't really enjoy this book. I couldn't even give it a 2-star - "it was ok". It may look like I'm making a big deal of it as some do Harry Potter - but no, I just like to talk.
very nice interpretation of yours,.
It's worth a read. But not that interesting.
