I Teach Meditation 11/28/81

I Teach Meditation   11/28/81 I am giving a workshop on meditation at a college.  It seems that we have just begun the group when we run out of time.  People keep coming in late until there is a big group.  Some guy takes up a lot of the available time talking.  I become impatient.  I want to hit the group with some powerful information before the class ends.  I don’t get to because we run out of time.  The group starts...

Confidence Snow Skiing

Confidence Snow Skiing 11/22/81 I am being told by two women that I can’t snow ski.  I do.  It is dusk.  I plan only to ski down a gentle slope to a curve, about half a block, but it is so easy and I am having so much fun that I continue even though it is getting dark.  Lots of fun!  Jess is waiting down the road.  I am pleased to tell him what I have just done.  He is impressed.  Associations  Yesterday: ...

Berry’s Praise

Berry’s Praise 5/81 I am talking to Berry Thompson (a boyhood friend who went on to become an orthopedic surgeon) at his house.  He is very friendly.  We are talking about the pain treatment program.  He is very complementary.  We are sitting in his living room. associations At the time I was running a pain treatment program in Little Rock focusing on lifestyle change.  I had contracts with Workman’s Comp, contracts with consultants, and housed my people at an inpatient psych hospital.  Berry...

Driving Up River

Driving Up River 5/15/80 (This dream narrative is a recollection based on the elements in the sociomatrix.  I cannot find the original on which the dream sociomatrix is based.) I am driving up a river a night in my car.  There is a bridge ahead.  I hit submerged rocks at such a speed that I tear the manifold off the engine and the exhaust system.  I am thrown out of the car.  The father of a young mechanic fishes my car out...

My Counterfeit Mother

  My Counterfeit Mother 6/27/81 Annette, Helen, and Elizabeth (my sister and her two daughters) are living in a large old house with a lot of passages.  The kids seem happy.  a pretty woman and a man live there too.  The woman claims to be the real mother of the girls and of Annette, Andra, and I as well.  I didn’t see how she could be old enough.  But someone tells me it is possible.  I don’t like the situation.  I think...

Mickey Crashes His Biplane

Mickey Crashes His Biplane 11/29/81 I am looking  at  an  animated cartoon Mickey Mouse and some young mice or young ducks (I think it was  ducks, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, probably.)  taking  off in a yellow biplane. They take off though a gate.   The gate takes off the wings of the plane.  It crashes, but no one is hurt. Associations A less  serious  version  of  “The  Space  Shuttle Crashes.”  I masturbated yesterday.  Seems to be talking about its effect on some set of...

Methodical Suicide

Methodical Suicide 12/18/81   I am watching a man slowly kill himself with a long knife.  He is slowly pushing it up from beneath his rib cage toward his heart.  It was extremely gruesome and horrifying to watch.  He may have been wearing Japanese robes. Associations Masturbated the previous day. Comments:  Short and very intense.   I almost did not diagram this dream because it seemed so short. Sociomatrix Commentary Dream Self: This is terrible, but it’s also fascinating.  I’ve never seen someone commit hari kari before. Man: I don’t...
