Between Two Worlds

I asked a dream-incubation question, "How can I live between two worlds?"--reality & dream, heaven & earth, self & other.... The first dream reply was the words, "Not good news, not bad news, just news." Then I am crossing a bridge too fast for the flood waters in the middle of the span. There followed two dreams involving the bipolar therapy client whose cloths I wore in the "Hip Hop" dream posted last week.In one I am searching his apartment for a certain "lens." Next the two of us are on a train with a boiler loudly under repair. I ask the workmen why they don't take the train out of service to do the work, and they give me the contact info for the state authorities. The final dream response was the words, "Empire by the fire," with the image of a dark skinned man sitting by a fire. What are your two different worlds?


  1. Hi, Lou!

    I've had your Facebook mention of this or your first hip-hop dream in my inbox, wanting to come here to comment. So here I am, finally.

    "Hip-hop dream" was what first caught my eye, because of a couple of posts I've written on my own blog ( about a hip-hop(-related) dream.

    Reading your two posts, I experienced a few small synchronicities. Most striking were these: The first of your posts is from September 10 -- and on that day, I received the page proofs for a book I proofread (just shipped it back today) about bipolar and Tao (Tao being a balance of opposites, as in your dream in this post).

    Have you Googled "Empire by the fire"? It's a striking term, so I did just now, and got (this is unusual) just two results.

    My two worlds? I've described myself in professional and other contexts as a balance of left and right brain, verbal and visual, technical and creative (although that doesn't imply that I feel my *life* is in balance).

    Great dreaming to you! Looking forward to your Lucid Therapy workshop at the PsiberDreaming Conference!


  2. Thanks Gloria, left/right brain is a good addition. See you in psiberspace!
