Brian’s Column: The Fourth Dream

Combo of Barry Sanders, Jason Bourne, and Roy Hobbs
By Brian R. Wright

A continuation of the Three Dreams column

As if to underscore the notion that enlightenment is at hand, last night I had the most remarkable and empowering dream, arguably, of my life to this point. I include the recording as a high-def scan on the right, click on the image to expand it the better to read.

In a nutshell, I was poised for my second sleep sequence and to get back to sleep soonest I employed the Spiritual Magic Move described in The Truman Prophecy… only on this occasion enhanced with a ‘Feel the Wheel,’ no-mind practice of Falun Dafa.

It took me to an immersion in the ‘God’-source: utterly deep quiet skyscape, mountain-scape, seascape, sunlit. Then sleep. Then dream: I’m a combination of centered supreme athletic force (a la running back Barry Sanders) with capabilities of Jason Bourne (of the Bourne movies) and even Roy Hobbs of The Natural. I feel incredible power, limitless energy and vision, as with Hobbs: “Anything he wants to hit he hits.”

“I’ll have what HE’s having.” [I’ll have much more to add as the year progresses.]

I tell you people, especially to friends of mine who have all but run out of gas, hang on just a bit longer. You, too, shall be the Roy Hobbs of your world. THIS is the year of the Grand Truth Convergence, fulfillment of the Prophecy, and everyone’s extraordinary breakout! Continue reading

Followed by a Saturday the 14th tour of the school—Hi, Eric with the brass, um, horns!—, brunch at a nearby sports bistro (Maloney’s), and, for a handful of the historically motivated, a reunion coda at the Johnson County Historical Museum. So that about wraps it up. I decided that the 50th reunion weekend belongs in the memoirs as a flash forward, since so much of what transpired was of high reminiscence value. In the form of a travelog…

Remote Contact

Throughout the summer I had thought, hey, this is a big year, my 50th anniversary of crossing that all-American threshold of receiving a high school diploma. I felt it would be nice to make the effort this time—perhaps the realistic last best chance to dip into the teenage nostalgia pool without being laughed at as a beyond-the-pale geezer.
