No problem, I hope it helps.
I can try. let's see here...
First, there's the smoothie truck, symbolizing god. Why? It's big and obvious, sitting in the middle of the park(symbolizing earth) dispensing
refreshment, but not everyone can tell it's there. If they could, then your friend would have gone to the truck instead of asking you.
For a drink to be a smoothie, it has to be made of fruit (evoking the image of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil) and dairy, like
ice cream or yogurt (esoterically, the nourishing essence of god is symbolized by milk because though milk is fluid and seemingly insubstantial, it's
full of nutrients). So, the smoothie represents spiritual knowledge and sustenance from the divine. When you approached the truck, you didn't come
away with a smoothie. Why? Because you already had one, back at the car. Instead, you received the bracelet identifying you as an agent of the
smoothie truck, or a bearer of spiritual knowledge. When connecting to the divine, a color which is neither green or blue, but both in their purest
forms at once shows in an individuals aura.(you'll just have to take my word on that one for now.)
The park or sports field is analogous to earth. Why? Because at a sporting event, we split ourselves in to arbitrary teams and put all our energy in
to blustering about how much better "our" team is than "their" team like it actually means something. After the game though, ultimately, we're
all human, and we all want the same things. When we come to earth, we put on these human jerseys, and we play at the game of peoples and nations.
Ultimately though, we're just little pieces of god in costume, and it's just a game, realistic though it may be.
The strange-yet-familiar female represents the high priestess from the tarot. Like the moon reflects sunlight down to the earth in the dark, the
priestess reflects divinity from the realm of god to the consciousness of the individual, which is why she showed up out of nowhere while you were on
to your way back to the car to retrieve your smoothie(spiritual knowledge/acquaintance with god.)
The car is analogous to the chariot from the tarot, and represents your mortal self. Much like you get in your car and use it to move around the
world, your 'soul' or true self climbs in to your mortal consciousness and uses it to get around and interact with the physical world. Acquaintance
with god is found within, never without. That's why your 'smoothie' is gotten from the car, and not from the smoothie truck.
Then there's the would-be thief. Thieves can't be stopped, only deterred. If the thief really wanted to steal your cup, you would have found
nothing but a busted window and an empty car. Even if you happened upon the scene while he was in the act, he would have taken what he wanted and run.
That he stopped and talked to you shows that his was only token resistance. He never meant to get away clean, he was only there so that you could tell
him what for and claim what's rightfully yours.
The cup symbolizes your capacity to carry and distribute the spiritual knowledge represented by the smoothie. Laying claim to the cup and 'owning'
your role as a bearer of knowledge constitutes a spiritual awakening, which is never a smooth transition. The chaos that greeted you upon your return
to the sports field represents the metaphorical 'turning upside down' of one's world that usually accompanies such a transition.
I recommended the books of John because I had a brain fart the first time I read your post and mistook 'Joseph' for 'John', but I don't believe
that there are such things as coincidences, and you still may find something of use to you by reading them anyway.
