After waking up, I realized that the card dealer was very similar to Doc Holiday from the movie Tombstone I watched last night. And after being with the dream for a while, I saw that the card dealer is life itself, dealing me exactly the cards I need. The cards are stacked in my favor, whether I see it or not. It is a close and perfect partnership.
This view is relatively close to my conscious surface view, or primary process in PW terms. Yet, there was certainly a surprise in the closeness and solidity of the partnership. I do not see this all the time in my ordinary life.
In a following dream, I gave a presentation to a group of people, although I don’t remember the topic.
