They say the dreams that you have in the wee hours of the morning at the break of dawn are the most vivid. It's true, because I just had a dream early this morning and I can remember almost the entire dream. So I am going to quickly write it down here before I forget. I tried to search for photos (below) that closely depict what I saw in the dream.
In the dream, I was walking along a dusty road in a primitive village with no traffic. Both sides of the road were padi fields. There were simple thatched huts along the way. Then I reached a row of huts which looked like shops selling something, like this photo.
It looked somewhat like a shop front with thatched roof. As I walked into one of the shops, the interior seemed much bigger than expected from its humble facade. The walls were of faded paint. It looked like a centre or something. Quite a few people were inside waiting in seats for something. I was supposed to be looking for someone or something which I did not know what. It was a bustling place, as people walked in and out.
P and I were pondering and discussing what that was all about. Just then, the pink woman got up and walked out of a door at the back. Somehow, I got up and wanted to follow her. P tried to stop me, held my arm and spoke gently to me "don't go". I think I did not hear. I was already out of the back door.
What I saw outside the back door surprised me greatly. There was a lake or river surrounded by little temples or stupas like these all around the lake. It was unusually calm and peaceful and there were a few boats on the lake although the water was a little murky looking. The temples/stupas surrounded the lake and you had to get on a boat if you wanted go to any of the temples.
Then I saw a small white chinese-looking bridge in the middle of the lake, so I told the man to bring me to the bridge. He slowly rowed the boat towards it.
As I alighted and stepped onto the bridge, suddenly there appeared in front of me, a land adjoining the bridge, had formed and it grew bigger and bigger, till it looked like I was back on land again. Wherever I stepped on, soil/land grew out of the waters. It was like I was walking on the water that grew solid soil for me to step on. I was exhilarated and surprised. Just then, I thought I saw a white fat cat. So I followed it. I walked faster as the cat walked away even faster. I had wanted to touch and stroke the cat. But it was illusive and I had to walk faster chasing it.
Wow, I was blown away by the clarity of the dream. Now, can anyone tell me what is the meaning of this dream?
