Friday Five: Dreams

First a little music… 🙂

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith
to the river so deep
I must be looking for something
something sacred I lost
But the river is wide
and it’s too hard to cross.

Even though I know the river is wide
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
I try to cross to the opposite side
So I can finally find what I’ve been looking for

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear
to a river so deep.
I’ve been searching for something
taken out of my soul
Something I’d never lose
something somebody stole.

I don’t know why I go walking at night
But now I’m tired and I don’t wanna walk anymore
I hope it doesn’t take the rest of my life
Until I find what it is I’ve been looking for

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt
to the river so deep.
I know I’m searching for something
something so undefined
That it can only be seen
by the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night.

I’m not sure about a life after this
God knows I’ve never been a spiritual man
Baptized by the fire I wade
Into the river that is runnin’ to the promised land

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
to the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
we all start in the streams
We’re all carried along
by the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I go walking in the
in the middle of a …

Now then…

Jan from RevGals writes this week’s Friday Five:

I have just started studying Jung and dreams with a group of friends. I am hearing about lucid dreaming and imagining, which have opened me up to wondering about dreams in general. So how about wondering with me?

1. Everyone dreams: Do you remember your dreams? How often? Sometimes I do. It depends.

2. Did you or do you have a recurring dream? Share it, if you’d like. I’m sure I do… but I don’t remember enough to tell you!

3.Have you ever had recurring themes or images in dreams? Examples? Sigh. See answer #2.

4. Do you day dream? About what? Getting a job. Being published. Public speaking. Things I’m working towards… s l o w l l l l y y y y!!

5. What are your dreams/hopes/goals for the future? I think there is a need for chaplains — people who never go to church, or synagogue or temple, and need compassionate support and presence in a hospital room can find it if the hospital they go to is not so cheap as to hire only one chaplain for every 200 beds. (Wait… did I say that?) Any way… that’s what I’d love to be doing. God’s time. God’s place. And while I wait, God’s peace.
