I had a thought last night, when I awoke, because Marla wanted to come cuddle with me. Every night there is some child who wakes me up. Over the past four days I have been using this opportunity to practise my meditation techniques. In that peaceful state, observation is much more focussed. I thought to myself last night, my dreams are changing, perhaps through meditation the colour of dreaming too is altered. Sam addressed this today in lesson 13. Of course I have read about this, but the understanding of it can of course, not come from reading. It has been a strange few days. I have been physically very unwell, I have felt loved, more than I ever have. Family. A brother who understands me, the good and bad, without judging me. Then there is this silly little dog, peeing blood, who seems to wake up a little as time goes by. I have this need almost, to care. To be useful. To love. To Reason.
