A strange dream ~

I had a strange dream last night.

Very strange.

I woke up about 3:30am, and I couldn’t get back to sleep. And so I decided to meditate.

It took me a long time to shift from meditation back to sleep.

And here is my dream:

I wanted a piece of Jesus’ brain. And so these men exhumed a coffin – it was burnished silver, like pewter, but the coffin was sealed and the only way they could get me a piece of Jesus’ brain was by drilling down through the silver coffin. 

I thought this was hilarious. 

I was making wise-cracks all the time. 
Really lame jokes. 

And then one of people drilling down pulled out the drill and attached to the end of it was a long piece of what looked like pasta. Spaghetti. 

This person handed me this, telling me it was Jesus’ brain. 

And then I got serious. 

That was the dream. I can’t remember any more.

Readers of this blog know that I am not a religious person. I have respect for various religions, but I don’t partake. I have a leaning towards Buddhism, and lately Hinduism.

Whilst I say I’m not a religious person, I think there’s no doubt that in the making of this film, I am going on a spiritual journey. Not a religious journey, but a spiritual one.

Jennifer this morning at breakfast interpreted the dream as being my searching for “Christ Consciousness,” which is a spiritual term that transcends Christianity.

Who knows…

(This shot, by the way, was taken on a trip to Jaipur, and was on the wall of the Royal Palace. To me it sums up intuition…)

    Why do so many New Agers have this weird thing about “transcending Christianity” ?

    If you want to take Christ at all seriously, then He is Himself that very Transcendence. Which would give Christianity, from any sensible spiritual point of view, the goal of transcending itself — which is BTW what the Catholic orthodoxy of the Faith teaches anyway — so what more could you look for than a transcendental spiritual Faith in the Eternal Creator ?

    I *do* understand that many confuse a certain peculiar combination of lip service, ritual, and rules as being “catholic” — this confusion is not helped by the worldly, politicised antics of so many in our times who claim “catholicism”, and yet appear to be lacking any of the True Spiritual Faith.

    St Thomas Aquinas addressed the problem of people of this sort in a hopeful manner — he thought that those without the blessing of any Spiritual Faith would do well to embrace Christianity anyway, because then at least their lip service and their religious practices and the teachings they pass on would find themselves in harmony with that blessing and that Faith.

    In my opinion, your dream has a VERY simple interpretation — a confrontation between your mocking rejection of the Church, and the deeper need of your Soul for the true nourishment of the Eucharistic Faith.

    The Eucharist is the very centre of all Catholic Christian Spirituality.


    • Hi Julian – at no time do I mock Christianity. Please point out where you think I have.

      This aside, I respect your views, and I value your intrepretation of my dream.

      thank you.


      • Sorry — using a bit of an older meaning of the word, rather than the ordinary one.

        Curse my mediaeval studies !!!

        So not “openly make fun of”, but “lacking right seriousness towards”.

        Sorry for the confusion.


  3. I’m reminded of this ;

    Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
    And with fear and trembling stand;
    Ponder nothing earthly minded,
    For with blessing in His hand,
    Christ our God to earth descendeth,
    Our full homage to demand.

    King of kings, yet born of Mary,
    As of old on earth He stood,
    Lord of lords, in human vesture,
    In the body and the blood;
    He will give to all the faithful
    His own self for heavenly food.

    Rank on rank the host of heaven
    Spreads its vanguard on the way,
    As the Light of light descendeth
    From the realms of endless day,
    That the powers of hell may vanish
    As the darkness clears away.

    At His feet the six wingèd seraph,
    Cherubim with sleepless eye,
    Veil their faces to the presence,
    As with ceaseless voice they cry:
    Alleluia, Alleluia
    Alleluia, Lord Most High!
