A dream is a little hidden door…

battle of the light“The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night…”

“…in dreams we put on the likeness of that more universal, truer, more eternal man dwelling in the darkness of primordial night.”

In_Dream_by_Virus69“The dream is often occupied with apparently very silly details, thus producing an impression of absurdity, or else it is on the surface so unintelligible as to leave us thoroughly bewildered.”

“Dreams are impartial, spontaneous products of the unconscious psyche, outside the control of the will.”

_heart_s_chakra__by_janek_sedlar-d5rlc4y“One would do well to treat every dream as though it were a totally unknown object. Look at it from all sides, take it in your hand, carry it about with you, let you imagination play round it, and talk about it with other people.”

Believing in impossible things…

night-circus“And you are looking for answers,” Mr. Barris says.

“I don’t know what I’m looking for,” Tara responds, and for the moment her face crumples as though she might burst into tears, but then she composes herself. “Ethan, do you sometimes feel like you are dreaming, all the time?”

“No, I can’t say that I do.”

“I’m finding it difficult to discern between asleep and awake,” Tara says, tugging at her lace cuffs again. “I do not like being left in the dark. I am not particularly fond of believing in impossible things.”

Mr. Barris takes off his spectacles, wiping the lenses with a handkerchief before he replies, holding them up to the light to check for rogue smudges.

“I have seen a great many things that I might once have considered impossible, or unbelievable. I find I no longer have clearly defined parameters for such matters. I choose to do my work to the best of my own abilities, and leave others to their own.”

-from The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern

Relationship…

Relationship is an art.
The dream that two people create is more difficult
to master than one.
