Dream leads man to sacred antique piece!

Indo-Asian News Service
Shimla, September 3, 2005
 
After seeing a vision in a dream, a man claims to have dug at a spot for two weeks and found a sacred Hindu artefact in a remote forest of Himachal Pradesh.

The stone 'shivling', the symbol of Hindu god Shiva, was discovered in Kelvi, some 100 km from here, Friday. After hearing of the find villagers started to flock to the spot to see the ancient idol.

"I saw a powerful vision in a dream of a radiant shivling lying buried next to two water holes. I began to dig at the spot the next morning and eventually found it," Attar Singh Mahant was quoted as saying by newspaper reports on Saturday.

Officials of the archaeology department are expected to reach the spot soon to ascertain the exact age of the artefact.

Hill folk in Himachal are primarily worshippers of Shiva, one of the trinity of the Hindu pantheon

like the 9 year old Hindu boy who turned out to be a Oddfellows club member.

I had the strangest dream last night
it really disturbed me
I dreamed I lost my memory,
it occurred to me when a UPS box came back with my handwriting
but I didn't remember sending it
it was a bogus address originally, had gone all over the world,
then returned to me
inside was my fathers head
he's dead you know,
I didn't remember sending it, but I'd been getting more and more forgetful.
so I figured I had cut his head off, and sent it away, hoping it would not return.
Yeas ago, I saw two ghosts (really) they were in the dream too, they hadn't changed in the years since I saw them, still floating spheres of nebulous light, only this time they had something to say;
you are losing your memory.
The whole thing was in an alpine setting
the air was really clean. I couldn't believe I was that dirty,
I was trying to remember the last time I saw him,
surely I hadn't cut his head off, seemed like I'd remember that.
I told the ghosts I don't do anything I have to forget and I wouldn't hurt a flea
literally so please just
let me be, I'm kind of tore up about it today, I must have issues I didn't know about.

Today I can't stop thinking about all the heads that appear in history,
the talking ghost and all the attending mystery, the cults of cappo.
My fathers head was trying to say something to me,
it has something to do with memory.

I don't remember many dreams, mostly because I don't care about them. I have weird dreams though. I figure it is just my sub-concious fighting with my concious to sort out who takes over the world today and I could care less.

On the other hand my wife intentionally tries to remember every dream and figure out what it means.

To each his own.

Kirk, since it means something to you I hope you find peace with it.

Kirk, dream images are symbolic and shouldn't be taken literally but though culture plays a part in it, the symbols are different for everyone. You know what kind of relationship you had with your father and what his head might symbolize to you. (head of the family? control?) Dreams are sometimes our subconscious trying to tell something and when we figure it out, I've found that it's usually either something we already know or related to something that's going on in our lives. Maybe you are afraid of losing some degree of control over your life. Working for others will do that to you. As for memory loss -- what was I saying? Oh yeah, I think as we age we don't generally lose memory so much as instant access to what we know. I can remember anything. Just not when I want to.

Hopefully, it will not haunt you anymore, friend and you find peace with it ASAP. Head, however might suggest some change, probably something pleasant as it is your Pap's and family always means something very nice.

I hate nightmares and especially some sadness-inducing ones. Last three nights, nothing special, 1st dream with grandma (I dream her as rare as possible), second with Jesus Christ, and third one-Wild West, some conspiracy, some action, I do not know what I was doing there.

I pay attention to dreams only when my rat appears in them-these deliver important messages from astral.

I've been dreaming a lot lately, sometimes the memory of it nags at me.
Dreamed of flying again, then, 3 days running I dreamed of birds.
First dream was rows of crows, all on a wire
fractal black wings stabbed signals against the half lit sky
like a referee on the mat; "yer out" they say and add:
"repeat that down the line"
"crows" I read, but the others all disagreed
I gave that some were masquerading.

Dream two, a darker scene, I can barely see the goose.
black on black, and a stormy night to boot
the goose so poorly drawn, an awkward botch from an obvious hack
that's no goose at all, or is it? the patch of dark paint turns out to be a Rembrandt,
I should have known from the shadows, no botch here, look:
it's fine enough to make you die
the mob disagreed, it's a blob you fool, a good camera is what you need,
but I could see a glint of golden light thinly beaming from under it's downy breast;
An egg

When I was a child, while sleeping, I dream t that I heard a voice call my name from across the room. When I opened my eyes I was greeted by a non stop kaleidescope of snakes, these snakes seemed to emanate from all corners of the room (mostly starting at the ceiling and working their way down the walls). In fear I remember calling for help "MOMMY...MOMMY.." to no avail. I remember getting up out of bed and walking into my parents room, the snakes followed me into their room, everywhere I looked I saw SNAKES and more snakes in Technicolor. At this point scared out of my mind I climbed into their bed (for protection), and waited for the terror to end, somehow sensing it would not be morning until this nightmare ended. As I recall it ended with sunrise the next morning, although I don't remember actually waking up. Something of interest is that I also felt my eyes were wide open and I was completely awake during this "dream", I have never forgotten this dream and feel rightly or not that this dream has something to do with who I am today.

I had a bizarre dream last night, I won't bore you all with the details but the moment I fell asleep the night sky lit up in a shower of sparks, forming a cross, then an image of a trumpet and seven seals, it was Armageddon. The next scene is sometime after the fall and I'm trying to survive among detritus and walking dead men. I find a monumental library among the ruins. I am interested in preserving the books and I'm after some on medicine and gardening. Half of the roof is gone and rain has done damage but only to the administration area, the books were the only thing still covered. I gather a group of volunteers to clean up the mess and head off to do some planting. Comes a hard rain and I can no longer be out standing in my field, soaking wet and muddy I head back to the library, I find everyone dressed nicely, sipping coffee at their desks. The books had all been moved to the roofless area and the desks to shelter. The rain is pouring down and I'm mad as hell, everyone tells me the books will dry, people won't.
Damn dream went on all night long, I'd tell you more but it's just more of the same, only different.

I love people when they're well wetted
and even read books that are bone dry.

Penmanship when they used real pens!

 

Today's kidz can't even hold one. Nor a pencil neither.

 

Children struggle to hold pencils due to too much tech, doctors say 

shuck and jive is an important skill

 

I cannot play music on an infinite keyboard.

I got a bunch of these oldtimers running, and they don't need wifi.

 

I still sketch on paper before I do a CAD drawing too.

Autocad I can do, or used to.  Almost always I was duplicating some other drawing, so I would scan the original, set it as a background layer, and draw over it.  Writing, not so much any more with my shaky hands.  Always loved fountain pens, though.  I've had one or two good ones and a few cheap ones.  My favorite writing instrument ever was the Koh I Noor Rapidograph drafting pen.  Pain in the ass to maintain, but what a beautiful perfect line.  One of the many things I like about Jay is that he likes the stuff I like.  Usually his stuff is better than mine, though.  We were talking about Wah Wah pedals a while back and he said he might have one to sell.  They're not cheap to begin with, but his is signed inside JHE - out of my price range.  (Jimi Hendrix Experience).

I used to write line tags on the refinery piping models I built with a Rapidograph, they are a pain to keep running, but they make a damn fine line.

 

I got lucky with the fountain pens, I found them in a box of things that were from my late Mom. They do write very nice, much better than the crappy

throwaway pens I've used most of my life. 

 

I wish I played the the guitar stuff more, but the inspiration left me, and I don't think it'll ever return. 

Something has to go, I want some room in this damn house.

 

The stomp boxes were You knee Viiibes, guess which one has the initials.

Hard to say.  Uni-Vibe, okay, my bad.  I have an amp with digital simulation of Wah and Univibe, but it's hard to sound like Hendrix even with the real stuff.  At least I have a nice Strat.  It's the best guitar I ever played, accept for another, which was also a Strat, but built in 1958 or so.  It was hanging in the basement of a friend of Eric in South Bend.  I think he said he turned down forty thousand American for it.

Okay, so it's the one with two rubber strips, if the picture I found of one that was owned by Jimi is accurate.

 

Uni-vibe.

And then someone asks why Robin Trower is not in the "Rock and Roll" "Hall of Fame".  Who gives a fuck?  That shit is a joke.  Look up "joke" along with it and see what  you find.

 

“You tell me what the hell is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and what does it do besides talk about itself and sell postcards?” - Steve Miller.

 

But Miller showed up.  Johnny Rotten had the right response directly to them:

Robin Trower is still amazing, got to meet him a couple of times here, very nice guy. 

Amazing how how he shakes those strings, and still keeps going, long after a lot of younger shredders burned out, and up.

Not everybody can "shred" - I can't, but I don't want to, either.  Robin probably could, but he's like all the great guitar players, a blues musician at heart.  Shredding is about fast-twitch muscles, but the blues comes from sitting on the porch, with cracks so wide you can see the chickens underneath.

 

Clyde plays electric bass.

He plays it with finesse and grace.

Sit on the porch without no shoes.

Picking the bass and singing the blues.
