I just awoke, 07:10, from a dream.  I had just begun an employment at a company, a company with visions.  It was in the a afternoon, and at 14:50 someone tells me that at 15:00 hours there will be a general meeting.  I go there.  It is the management that is speaking.  It is a good speech.  He also talks about the situation in the world, and a woman next to me looks shocked to have to hear this at work.  The speaker mentions a historical person, a Jesuit, who had corrected earlier misconception in science, and who apparently became a Pope as well.  I think in the dream of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, before I hear that he also was a Pope, mostly because I don’t know about so many other Jesuits that were scientists.  The Manager speaking is showing a picture of the latest that the company has become involved in.  One can see that it is something red, but one doesn’t really understand what it is.  It is a little secret as well.  It feels that he perhaps is finished.  We are allowed to pose questions.  Many hands in the air, mine also — I want to ask what this means for the future.  A number of other questioners receives answers to their questions, but no-one has answered my question.  A woman powerfully sums up that now with the story about this visionary pope, we can round off the first part of the lecture, and go on.

But my hand is still up, and I sit just some meters from the speaker.  I get the word.  I say that he will perhaps answer my questions in the second part of the lecture, but what I had wanted to ask was what this new meant for the future.

The speaker goes to the pulpit, that I hadn’t noticed before.  He suddenly excuses himself — perhaps he got an important message — and hastily leaves the auditorium.  I have — in the dream there was nothing strange about this — a moisted wiper in my hand.  While we wait for him to return I go to the pulpit and start to wipe it really clean and worthy our respected Company Manager, for when he return.

I realize that I ought to say something.  After all, people are shifting uneasily.  I say in the microphone that since the venue is booked and we are gathered, if the speaker doesn’t return, do you want to listen to my thoughts about the future?  And there I woke up, and went to the computer to write the dream down.

About the translation:  Given that this was a dream, where insight is of course transmitted symbolically, I have been very careful to preserve the original Swedish flow of the text in the translation.  It is therefore more of a word for word translation than I’d normally do.

   
Dream 2008-09-01 (day after the above dream):
by Leif Erlingsson
2008-09-01 (translated 2009-10-04 08:48)

Woke up with a nightmare, my work-tools where taken away from me — my computer screen and keyboard — which in the dream together with expensive server computer was privately owned, but in the dream this was on a workplace where I as a consultant had my own equipment.

Dream 2008-09-02:
by Leif Erlingsson
2008-09-02 (translated 2009-10-04 08:48)

Woke up with a nightmare, was travelling in a train, in the last car.  Was informed that it would be disconnected, that I was supposed to sit in the other part of the train.  Went out.  Realized that I must get my bags, did so — don’t know why I in the dream then went in a roundabout way (perhaps past a kiosk or station-hall) to the rest of the train, that by then had started to move.  I didn’t catch up, even if there was a platform in the back, if only I had had the strength to catch up.  Lacked the stamina, even though the train was accelerating so slowly.  Some meters short.

In todays horoscope for me in the Metro newspaper it says, western:  You have dificulty with getting things to work out as you’d wish.  Much will however correct itself.  Eastern:  The solution may come.

The first dream is my Holy Contract — So I understand it.

2009-10-04 (when translating the above dreams)

The second dream is what can happen if I don’t make timely changes in my life.  The third dream is about timely changes.  I tried desperately to understand how to correctly interpret the third dream in relation to changes we were considering — if the considered changes represented the roundabout or the catch up to the rest of the train.  Today I feel secure that they do not represent the roundabout — you see, we have now made the changes.  But today I also realized that my 15+ years as a LDS / Mormon between 1988 and 2004 also could be what the roundabout was about.  And I am now since some years doing a tremendous job of catch-up, but compared to where I’d been without the ‘Fundamentalist Roundabout Trip’, I probably have missed an important train in my life…

On the other hand, holographically, fractally, my life experience could be a map of the world experience, where the whole world has been on a roundabout instead of making needed changes, and now needing to do globally what I have mapped in my personal life; i.e., a tremendous job of catch-up with the timely changes.
