      Reading through some Dzogchen books, Body, Voice, and Mind are 3 interdependent aspects of existence...

      I have been looking at these components in too much a independent context. This seems to suggest I practice to integrate them in my minds view... one, one, one

      I call this dream "Integration" because the three persons and my view are all aspects of myself that are seemingly separate but work together in the totality of the one being. The café with the computer screens suggests that you begin with one perspective and end up with two, one smaller and one larger to integrate into one view. Many teachings are out there that also suggest such.
      The journey through the mud down and up hill, in cart and on foot, suggest to me the starting out on the journey moving through the mire of conceptual thought and spiritual "practices". Slow going with seemingly lots of effort.
      Arriving at the motel suggests reaching a point where the effort is/has been/ is being replaced by the light of tasting what the teachings are all about first hand, where doubts and speculations are replaced by first hand real knowledge and understanding. That my view is in the process of eating its flashlight/scroll, suggests I am beginning to taste something critically essential, a fourth component of knowledge.
      The climb up the peak of the mountain with the monstrous entity in chase suggests that 3 of the 4 components are near or at the peak, but not quite to the tip waiting for the fourth. The monster chasing closely but not quite catching all suggests subtle desires and concepts that threaten to derail the whole journey. That the 4th aspect, my view, shifts to pursuing the monster and catching up with the other three aspects suggests , as does the beginning to eat the flashlight /scroll, that I have began to realize threats, while the cessation of the feeling of threat suggests that I am gradually working these things out of the picture. The dream ending prior to reach the other three at the summit suggests just a little more to do.

      The zombies I now believe to be another representation of myself, though related to the world events around me. Such represents myself being carried off by my worldly opinions of current events and such. Cutting the zombies head off would suggest that I remove the problem from my mind... not get caught up in all these things that I have no control over anyhow. They are distractions that carry many off into worldly affairs" to the south".

      Seems both women represent some part of myself, as does the part I seem to play in the dream. 3 parts. The two women seem to be opposites of sorts, a dualistic contrast of Self/self. I as the third party seems to be an arising aspect that bridges the two in some way, or is supposed to eventually . I have had dreams to effect of that bridging before.

      It would seem that this dream actually gives the question to me for which the previous dream, "Love is the answer", answered. For the last two years I have been at a loss as to what direction to take to continue along with this path I am on. There seems to be this unconditional "Love" of equanimity that comes from within that pours out of all those who have been held as true spiritual teachers, and within me there seems to be a" blockage" of sorts. I know this Love, have tasted it , yet pouring it out from within myself seems to elude me. I myself stand in its way it seems. This seems to be what my attention needs to be towards now...removing the blockage... or letting go of it as the case may turn out to be.
