I had a very odd conversation with my youngest boy child tonight. In the middle of telling me about his meditations ( huh? wtf? meditation practice? my youngest son meditates now? ), this is what he had to say. Anyone have a clue as to what it might signify?
He does not generally remember his dreams. This place is where he grew up. He recently started spending time there again.
last night, i dreamed i was by myself walking up lucky 4 past the ranch. i was just walking and walking along the road. it was very peaceful and very real. i could almost feel the wind on my face. i passed three bears and one mountain lion all at different points along the road. they would appear out of the woods and i would kneel down on one knee keeping eye contact the whole time. it was like i could talk to them. i would stick out my hand and mentally say, i won’t hurt you, its ok. they would come to me sniff my hand and let me pet them. then i would move on. they did not talk back.
the bears would practically come up to me as soon as i stuck out my hand. no fear whatsoever. the lion was a bit different tho. he was on the right side of the road, all the bears were on the left. the lion was the last i encountered. it was near the end of the road. he came down the right side of the rocks like he was coming down from the den in the back 40 and at the other side of the spring from where we saw him that one time. he hesitated much longer than the bears and took more convincing. at first he crouched real low to the ground like he was about to pounce on me. i kept eye contact and waited. he slowly moved up to me after a bit, sniffed me, let me pet him and then i kept going.
not once did i step off the road. when i got to the end, right when the dirt ends and it turns to the rocks just past johnston’s old place, that’s when i woke up. it was one of the strangest and most real dreams i ever had.
