The Dream becomes the Dreamer

April 7, 2010

By C. J. Stegall-Evans

Lying in bed I begin to dream. In my dream someone is running after me. I am running away from whoever is chasing me but I am also running to find myself and wake me up. I want wake me up to remind myself that I don’t have to be chased; I have it within me to change the situation. I need to remind myself that I am both the dreamer and the dream.

I wake myself up in the dream and I am keenly aware that I am dreaming. I cease running and myself and I stop to enjoy each other’s company. I tell myself that she has more control over our life than she could begin to imagine. She tells me to stop running and turn around and meet life head on.

I tell her “I am only running to find a space in life that works for me.” She tells me to stop and make a space in life that works for me. She tells me it’s time to plant roots and grow that I have been running much too long.  I listen but I am still uncertain she sees the big picture after all I woke her up. She says “I wasn’t sleeping; I was waiting on you to catch up.”
