Hmmm

I asked this question on my blog, but...

I had a dream last night that I stopped at a vendor, a la Coney Island, and was going to buy two Buddha Pez dispensers.

What does this mean?

I always look on the hyper dictionary - dream section for meanings and it seems to be the closest I can get to a reasonable answer. Besides I love looking up my dreams. So I looked yours up and to dream of the Buddha indicates wisdom and compassion and I will copy the answer they gave for candy: Seeing or eating candy in your dream, symbolizes the joys and special treats in life. It also represents indulgence, sensuality and/or forbidden pleasure.

Your dream had no meaning. If they had meaning, you wouldn't need to ask for it. ;)

Karen: That was delightful! Thank you!

Dan and Drunken Monkey: You're not getting any of my wise candy.

It means that you had a dream last night.

Dreams do not fit very well into generic symbolic interpretation. If the dream means anything to you then you need to look at what the symbols mean to you and what emotions you felt during the dream.

It means like candy and shiny things.

I kinda just posted it as a silly trifle.

Still, I love, love, love Karen's interpretation. It fits my life right now. I hope.

I love the interpretations too. I have recurrent dreams that I have forgotten to feed my fish and they are turning into cannibals and eating each other. I always wake up startled that I would have forgotten something like that. Years ago I asked a therapist what it meant and she told me that dreams are always about ourselves so she wanted to know how I was forgetting to "feed" myself and wanted to know if I was taking care of others to the neglect of myself. So, maybe the teachings are like candy to you. Sweet and easy to swallow!!! And if you grew up in another faith maybe subconsciously they are forbidden!!!

I think this dream indicates that if you eat Pez candy two times a day consistantly, you will reach Buddhahood. And Buddhahood is fun like a day at the Coney Island Amusement Park.

Just being silly..... I have no clue.

Through Buddhism, you have renewed your sense of childlike wonder; your self and your world are transformed into a wonder-land. You are delighted, and now approach the Dharma/meditation with youthful delight, anticipating the sweetness yet to be revealed.

Yum!

I had the same sort of dream last night but instead of a Buddha Pez it was a Jennifer Lo Pez...

I once had a dream that Gudo Nishijima was blind and then he revealed the secrets of the universe to me. once I woke up I couldn't recall what those secrets were of course.... oh well

Probably something to do with balancing the autonomic nervous system?

I've always thought that dreams only have true meaning to the dreamer. I've kept a dream journal during points in my life and picking them apart is a matter of looking at recent experience and perhaps matching them to the symbols in the dream. Perhaps by just holding each symbol in your mind you can find what it most feels like; that works really well. It's kind of a guess, but as you roll it around in your mind, you'll become more certain or sure that your idea is not it. Sometimes these symbols resolve over the period of a day. It's a matter of practice really. Just regard all happenings as symbols. Sometimes they are very concrete and are a direct relation to your experience, or they are a little more shadowy than that.

Good Luck,
Kal

I've had a similar dream, it wasn't Gudo and I can't remember the context exactly but in that dream I was perfectly "enlightened", had figured it all out or whatever.....when I woke up I was in a state of awe because it was something that I had thought I had felt, but I couldn't remember a damn bit of it......kinda like that scene in Dogma.....Yeah, Jesus told me the meaning of life at a party once....but then I got drunk and forgot it.
