About a month ago, the last time I was with my family, I had this dream. It was such a little dream. But now I know it to be a big dream, at least for me. I have sat with it every day since it appeared, and it speaks to me more and more each day. “The Incredible Lightness of Being”
I see a huge, round bumblebee, hovering in the air in front of me. It is buzzing as it hovers. It’s translucent wings are a blur of motion. There is no setting except for the air rushing around the moving wings. It’s just the bee I see, as if nothing else exists. Just the bee. I feel amazed, entranced, enthralled by the glory of it. It just is, as if that is enough. Like the incredible lightness of be(e)ing. And as I have been rereading Gurdjieff this past week, I have discovered that he visited with the Sarmon Brotherhood in Central Asia, a group who was symbolized by the bee, as those who collect the precious wisdom of traditional wisdom. I am also reminded of the bee as the symbol for Christ Consciousness, perhaps a fitting symbol for this weekend.
Dreams can really unfold and bring such wisdom and numinosity! Thank you for sharing this with us! Your dream reminds me to carry this time of be-ing very lightly.
