I wrote this on another UB BBS. I am transferring it here for review and possibly stimulating and provoking thought.

The power of autosuggestion and the human mind…

Last night I fell asleep with the radio playing, still; the discussion on the radio program at the time was the adaptation of polar bears –their white fur and black skin– to the snowy environment. When my sleep initiated, a dream voice explains how Pallbearers are black underneath their sleeves. Then I woke up.

It is quite remarkable how the mind, in its deep recesses, will associate words passing to the eardrum, based on phonetics: in the dream, my mind adjusted the pronunciation polar bears for Pallbearers.

What did I learn from this dream? For starters, be alert and on guard against what flows into the mind while asleep, literally and figuratively, as those ideas cannot be filtered, readily, with an arrested conscious. Interestingly, there is a degree of truth, within the context of symbology, that blackness represents death; hence, the black skin under the sleeve.

I sometimes wonder how words, words put together to form sentences, and sentences forming paragraphs and books are treated by premind, mind and supermind. Do grammar rules and syntax change from mind to mind?

Autosuggestion has to do with hypnosis and the subconscious but nothing whatsoever to do with the ministry of our TA.

The UB teaches us that the attempt to discover meaning from the dream world is primitive and superstitious as a keyword search for "dreams OR dreaming" will reveal. Seeking truth and meaning in dreams is a useless and potentially dangerous waste of time.

I agree that what we choose to put in our brain should be well considered!

What is "premind"? Grammar does not change, no. Syntax is a personalisation of the rules or abuse of grammar. And what has that to do with hypnosis and subconcsious? Or the TA I wonder?

I think I only agree with the statement of "attempt to discover meaning from the dream world" if you mean the attempt to discover actual revelation from the adjuster or other ministering spirits. Certainly the dream world can potentially give us much meaning where it pertains to our mental, physical, spiritual and social health and status. The subconscious can tell us very interesting things about the desires and stresses of the whole person.

I remember dreams, for instance, where I felt a destiny reaction where I would soon communicate directly with the Creator. The feeling was overwhelming in trying to come to grips with how that experience would change me and it felt like my entire nervous system suddenly burst into flames at the prospect. I apparently woke up shortly afterward due to the intensity. I suspect I might not have remembered such a dream if I had not woken. I certainly would not ascribe that experience to the work of the adjuster, but I wouldn't discount that possibility either.

While your belief and confidence in dream interpretation enjoys popularity, even today, modern psychology agrees with the UB that finding practical meanings in dreams is unreliable - at best. I suppose we should post and consider the relevant text? It will be found with astrology and the reading of bones and tea leaves.
