I see a snow covered mountain landscape with the snow on fire. A voice also says “snow on fire.”
I woke up from this dream image, and when I fell asleep again, it came up again, with the same voice saying “snow on fire.”
The snow covers the whole landscape, apart from some peaks, and is fresh and white. The flames are clear, calm, tall and stable.
This reflects what comes up in daily life these days: passion with a depth of clear calm peace.
This depth of peace is partly the void, ground, emptiness, which is the depth of anything arising, and it is partly the luminous blackness (two aspects of the same.) It is the nurturing peace of Spirit filtered through the belly center, balancing out the fire of the head center.
More about this:
After a long period of dryness and lack of passion during the dark night, there are now more moments of passion surfacing, a passion with a deep calm depth, beautifully reflected in the dream image of snow on fire. The passion is the fire, rising out of the depth of peace, void and stillness. (I am amazed of the creativity of what they in Process Work call the “dream maker”, the source of the dreams. This is an image I would not have come up with consciously.)
Exploring it more consciously, I see that the peace has two distinct (although closely related) aspects. One is the void, ground, emptiness, which is the depth of anything arising. The other is the fertile darkness (composting) and the luminous blackness, with the same void, ground and stillness, but also nurturing. Both allows passion to arise, with a depth of peace.
