Dream of: 16 July 1982 "Under The Cross"

After standing for a while in the lobby of an apartment building and looking at some books, I walked upstairs to an apartment where my old girlfriend Birdie was living. I stood in front of the apartment door, knocked, then stood to the side where I didn't think Birdie would be able to see me through the small round peep hole. No one said anything from inside. Suddenly the door opened and Birdie stood before me. I asked, "Well, you just open up your door like that without making sure who it is?"

When she replied that she knew it was me, I asked, "Well, how'd you know it was me."

She answered, "Well, you hadn't been here in two or three days. I was expecting you."

I walked into the apartment and began talking. Recalling a book I had seen in the lobby, I reported, "Well, Bob Dylan has out a new book now."

Actually, Bob Dylan hadn't written the book it had been written by Carlos Castaneda. I even had the book with me I had bought it in the lobby. On the cover was the image of a man whose features couldn't be discerned. A shadow stretched out from his feet. The total impression was one of two shadowy figures standing there. I said, "The name of the book is Under the Cross."

She asked me what the title meant. I had the impression that Castenada had become a Christian. Referring to his old beliefs, I said, "He kind of, I suppose, rejected those old ways. But in this book he re-experiences these torrents of power which apparently came surging forth. And that was mainly what the book was about."

I was thinking that the "torrents of power" derived from his former beliefs in sorcery, and not his new religious beliefs.
