Post Father's Photos and Triffid
I am on my way to an interview. I receive (in some fashion) some of my father’s personal belongings. They consist of various group photos he was in, or that he took himself, and toys. I have never seen any of these items before. I take them with me, knowing that they are not mine and will later have to put them back. These photos now seem to come alive into a scene where I see my father as he was when young (mid twenties, with hair) and note that he looks identical to my elder brother at this age.

I step over a rail, onto a narrow bridge, en route to the interview. My left leg gets caught up in a green vine. It seems alive like a sci-fi “triffid”and is pulling me back. (Maybe I untangle my leg here, not sure, vague.)

I am walking along a road/corridor to the interview. My interviewer is now walking behind me, calls my name, Rob. I turn and see him.

A woman appears as a guide or escort to me. I put my arm around her waist, jealously guarding her. She wears a dress, yellow on top, red below. We walk.

Association: The interview is one I recently turned down, as being redundant to me. I have since been invited again.

Thoughts welcome.

Sense if this is related to the previous dream of the "banquet" being prepared for you as Gregory suggested - correctly in my view. The "stomach of the fish" is I think as Fox mentioned awhile back is in dream and image vision the essense of consciousness - you have the picture of St. Peter reaching into the stomach of a fish (the Christ) and extracting a gold coin. My observations here are ephemeral but this dream suggests a union with the "collective unconscious" as per the spirit of the father and the ancestors integrating in your life. The vine - the earth itself - gives you guidance on how to advance. When the Buddha was asked who was the authority to his observations he indicated the earth.

I am reminded - also cursury - of the movie The Matrix in wihch neo lives in the business world as a computer programmer - he sees his "other side" falsely as a hacker by night, making the mistake of nihilism - seeing negation of the power principle as a path to consciousness. Instead nature intervened and he is told by Anima (appropriately named Trinity - the 'triple goddess" of the Celt) "Neo the matrix has you." And she instructws him to "follow the white rabbit." An animal or vegitable spirit - green man - enters into your personal "matrix" to advance you to the path of the earth and the Unconscious."

Toys: to see "as a child" sees into the Unconscious - but in my experience I have misunderstood this symbol which can represent "childishness" ("like a child") - so nuanced and close view of this is in my opinion important.

Thank you Bernie, I was tending to think in those kind of directions myself.

Interesting aside: Yesterday a friend asked me which DVD I would like to watch. An insistent “Minority Report” jumped up to my mind, I knew not why. I’m not a film buff or TV watcher at all. We watched it (in background actually while otherwise busy). There is a scene in the film where Tom Cruise gets his leg caught in a vine.

(I have seen this film in the past. Seems that my unconscious remembered more than I did, wanted me to review it.)

As I think of this now I believe the film is about a false or suppressed report of a crime, the murder by drowning of the mother of a psychic girl. The girl (as a minority/child) saw the crime. She helps TC bring it to public awarenes.

I can relate this to my domestic "mind-games" business recently, can see how my shadow needed help from anima.

And for info, three/four years ago I followed the rabbit in a dream, down a long winding ramp. It took me to where I then got bitten by one dog and confronted by another. I levered my bitten hand out of the dog’s jaws, growled at both of them and they both ran off.

A thought I am pondering over: Do not Australian aboriginals say that the camera steals the soul?

The Amish say that. . . . Don't know about the Aboriginals.
