Welcome back. Well, if the Tao Teh King remains just out of reach, be patient and it will find it's way to you in due time. I can relate to the
not-enough-hours thing. I've been working between 38 and 45 a week depending on if I stay past my required shift. Hopefully September is kinder to my
poor feet than August was.
It's nice to see the lucid-capability developing slowly in you. Just keep working at it. I've been having some small lucid moments myself lately. I
had a test dream (I'm sure we all hate those) where the more I tried to complete the test the longer it got. I eventually just stood up in a
frustrated rage and shouted "I don't have to do this, I can just wake up". At which point I did, and fell back asleep again.
The same dream picked up where it had left off, and this time I walked out of the testing room and tried exploring the rest of the dream-location.
Unfortunately, because I tried not to focus on anything too intently the rest of the school where I was test-taking had no true form. I eventually
woke up when I could no longer keep an unfocused school in mind.
I actually have a similar dream experience as your August 23rd one. The same one I hinted at in my previous post. Which, actually occurred on the same
night as yours did. In mine I am kidnapped by one of my friends and taken to an abandoned jail located in a tower.
The prisoners are made up of me, the user BaphometsProphet, a co-worker, a current student of mine, two once-students of mine, an ex-friend who is a
hippy-druggy, and a pathetic Satanist that I know. The connecting link is we're all spiritual people.
In the dream there is a faceless-man who comes to represent the ignorance, aggression, rage, and ego of humanity all balled up into one human. This
faceless human ends up being the father of the friend who kidnapped me.
The faceless man is trying to clone people, and it turns out he ended up cloning my friend, only it was a clone made of all her anger, rage, deceit,
ego, and bitterness. Which is why she kidnapped all these spiritual people, the faceless man wants to try again to create the "perfect being".
The first part of the dream was about how the faceless man and the clone of my friend were experimenting on certain people (one ex-student, the
druggy, the co-worker, the Satanist) to create a tri-part soul. Which he does. But it's unstable and corruptible.
The second part involved my actual
friend arriving and freeing the remaining spiritual prisoners. And then we each went off to do various
things. One goes to stop the "Perfect Being", I go to find my friend who freed us, BaphometsProphet ends up freeing more enslaved humans, and my
other ex-student pursues the faceless man.
My current students confronts the tri-part "Perfect Being" and draws on all that is good in humanity to overcome it and destroy it. Freeing three of
the people who were used to create it.
BaphometsProphet finds thousands of humans stored in lower cells where they were going to be used to create more perfect beings. He frees them all and
guides them all out of the Tower.
I find my friend being attacked by her clone, and help her overcome her bitter, angry self so she can defeat her clone. Which she then locks up in the
cell. At which point her father (the faceless man) confronts us saying that we may have stopped his experiments, defeated his clone, and freed his
slaves, but we haven't stopped his potential.
At this point, my friend and I meet up with my student who is helping the 3 people escape and we all join BaphometsProphet outside. My ex-student,
still inside, finds the faceless man and her power-thirst nature compels her to join him in his quest to force humanity to a new level of spiritual
awareness. He takes her to the top of the tower and straps her to a Frankenstein-esque chair to bring the power of lighting into her.
Below, all of us escaped-people begin to pray, channel, send good things, etc, towards the tower where the faceless man is. And we end up summoning a
lightning bolt which annihilates the entire tower, killing the man and my corrupted ex-student.
That was the extremely short-hand version, ha ha. But the people were all representations of themselves, not reflections of myself. And I was able to
find all manner of symbolism, philosophy, and human-nature within it.
Very vivid, deep, meaningful dream. And on the same night as yours, with a similar type of villain. Only mine wasn't a demon cursing me out for
having stopped it at the moment, ha ha.
Thanks for posting though, I'll give your dream a look-see and maybe we can find some interpretations for it.
