Off a bridge, would you too? It’s an age-old conundrum, but this dream points out that concept on an inner level. Since we are all the characters in our dreams, the roles played by others in our images become very interesting. Are they with us? Ignoring us? Working against us? It is so important to remember all the lives we have inside us, because one aspect within us may be absolutely sure we want to make a spiritual journey, while other aspects have different agendas. That’s not a flaw, yet to truly keep on our path we must, over time, convince every part of ourselves of the mutual goal.

Jeane: The very earliest dream I had, I was a younger boy in that dream. The only scene I remember is jumping into some water that was this really pretty green color. And then I’m with a couple other boys, but I didn’t really pull that dream out.
And then in the next dream, which seemed all jumbled, it just felt like they were friends. It felt like they were boys about 12 or so, but nice kids.
I jumped in the water and then I got out. I don’t even know if they jumped in for sure. The water was this beautiful, kind of green water. It was a green color that was really pretty. That’s the only reason I think I even remembered the scene.
John: So you jumped in the water because you recognized something about the water.
Jeane: But it was like you couldn’t stay in it.
John: And you couldn’t stay in it because…?
Jeane: I don’t know.
John: And the only ones around were those that were other than people that you might be familiar with?
Jeane: They were friends, but I don’t remember.
John: Well, I’ll tell you what the theme of the dreaming is, not that it adds to the dream. Your second dream probably finishes things, but the theme of the dreaming has to do with discovering a part of yourself that does not necessarily apply, or is it apparent, or is it accepted, or is it taken on, by those who are part of your connective group. Those who you are familiar with.
In other words, they aren’t going along and jumping in the water, although you do kind of know them. It is you that has the excitement and the interest and the draw to jump into the water. And then, of course, you get right out, but at no time do you see that any of them have joined you.
And so, a dream like this raises the question, why is that the case? But you did know who they were. Did you always know who they were before you jumped in the water? Apparently barely. You don’t know for sure. You just were able to see them. You had a sense they were friends.
And that’s the dilemma. In other words, it seems to be portraying something that you’re to do, that opens something up, expands something, but there doesn’t appear to be any reciprocation or recognition in terms of their camaraderie about that issue. And you know that you’re to jump in the water and then you get right out?
You just knew you had to jump in the water and then get right out. You just saw yourself jump in the water, then get right out. That’s what you saw. It’s not a question of knowing that you had to do this. You just said that that’s what you saw yourself doing.
That works, too, in terms of being able to provide or be part of a quality or a note or a breakthrough that is not readily appreciated, or understood, or part of where your friends are at.
