well, i wouldn't take anything i just wrote literally or verbatim. the source i've at hand is a bit too new agey for me. written in 1963, it supposedly draws on a 2nd century dream interpretation book. i have not found the original to cite. as i've mentioned, some of the symbols as described by this author do seem to coincide with fair regularity some of my experience whereby i will be thinking something one day, note my dreams during that night, and then find the next day that the interpretation of some dream symbols match pretty closely what had been on my mind.
dreaming is so subjective, of course. and then there is what is important to you. perhaps you didn't relate all of your dream. perhaps only parts stuck in your mind. perhaps in recalling the dream you remembered in a way which would support your own preconceived interpretation. and so you, really, are the best interpreter of your own dream. just like in determining the so-called meaning of life. what would you like it to mean?
