DREAM SYMBOLS AND METAPHORICAL LANGUAGE
==================================
(from the works of Eugene Gendlin, PhD/Univ of Chicago)

i had a dream last night--- well of course it is no longer night cuz i alwasy sleep at 4am and wake up at 2pm. at any rate, i had a dream and i got so scared. i dreamt that i died all by myself inside my bedroom. i was soaking with sweat when i woke up. when i retire and sleep at 4am, my wife wakes up at 430am and prepares herself to go to work. we dont sleep in the same bedroom cuz by the time i come home--she is the one sleeping and i dont want to wake her up. by the time she wakes up ---- i am the one sleeping and i dont want to be waken up. so both of us decided to sleep ins eparate bedroom. she sleeps at the masters bedroom--- i sleep at the guest room.

so practically, by the time i go to bed and sleep, i am really on my own and all by myself inside the house. my two boys have already moved out and rented their own apartments closer to their university , plus kids in america wants their freedom and independence after reaching the age of 18.

i went to the library and looked for some materials about dream. i need to know why dreams are such real at times and very scary. so i came across somebooks about dreams and came upon this book:
