  One day, when the brilliant Chinese Cha'n master Chao-chou was sweeping
the court of the monastery, a man asked him:
-Ch'an monastery supposed to be clean and pure. Why is there dust to sweep?
Chao-chou replied:

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: DREAMING THAT I'M BLIND/LOSING MY SIGHT
vertical line Posted on Jun.19.2007 @ 11:57PM EDT by eohdao
Two times have I dreamt that I'm going blind. Both times I have at one point realized I'm dreaming and it's just my dream-eye that's becoming blind. In both dreams I'm not blind per se, but I fail to recognize anything; I don't exactly know how to explain that. Both times I have become frustrated when attempting to understand things visually. Both times I have woke up just to realize I was just dreaming, but there remains some mystic neurosis mixed with the sense of realizing something important; like if I wanted to be blind in dreams. Maybe it is a step to stop dreaming.
Have you something to say? Any personal account? A friend of a friend? Some tale you heard?

vertical line We become blind to the ways of the world, it blinds us with meaninglessness. And, there is a new vision, or old one, that opens us up, to a sense of seeing, through things, thoughts merge within this vision, these visions. We have visions of what is under the surface, then we go blind again, the eye is opened at night, while we sleep, we are looking for a real sign, just one, that all is not created to be just, skin deep, what we are looking for, who, with whom  we are seeing.

vertical line Your dreams are telling you that you are blind because of your attachment to, and dependence on your sense of sight.

I would guess it`s very much linked with this my friend..

Guess you deep down know what this dream means for you, even if you can`t make sense of it in the realm of words..

Then again what do I know? Guess you`re the best expert around here on you`re dreaming.
