I had a dream of the dog


You see, I grew up in a village called Dornach near Basel - Switzerland. There you will find a building that is quite extraordinary in its design. It's called the Goetheanum if you wish to "google" it...
Anyhow, that building was the backdrop of my dream. As some of you might recall, I lost "Sunrise" my dog a few weeks ago and in my dream he was standing on the balcony of this building and barking at people passing by. I scolded him a bit and he was quiet, he left the scene but quickly appeared in a library, nobody minded, he was wagging his tail. I don't remember checking out any books at that point - just was content that my dog was alive, at least in my dreams...
Then I woke up and yes, we do finally have our snow back in my "present neck of the woods." That is good. The snow is the cover to protect the earth naturally while humans struggle to find artificial and often useless sheaths of protection.

Hi Zee:
Sorry to hear about your dog, hopefully he had a long and happy life with you.

That's a very interesting looking building. I googled it and I see it was in your hometown and that it is a "free High School for Spiritual Science" designed by Rudolf Steiner. Did you by any chance attend there?

I did not attend there Cym, though I have some kind of understanding what they are doing or try to there. Basically there are several training opportunities in the arts, education and natural sciences that aim to link common knowledge with spiritual science, also called Anthroposophy. Anthroposophy loosely translated meaning: wisdom of humans.
The whole thing started after Steiner separated from Blavatsky ( the head of the Theosophical Society at the turn of last century). Steiner, the founder of so called Anthroposophy had the vision that every human can be enabled to make the connection by themselves between matter and spirit without having to rely on dogma of churches, religion, loges or any other institution.
We'll have to see and wait if he was right.

Sorry about your dog Zee. It must be some kind of sign that you dreamt about it.

I will fly to Basel in two hours, perhaps I will see the building. I stay in the Metropol SwissQ in Basel Mulhouse and don't know if that is nearby..If so I'll take a picture for you..

Zee--sorry to hear about your dog. He was beautiful. I hope you have lots of happy memories of him.

I believe there is more to this existence than can be proven scientifically, and although I do not believe/disbelieve in some of the theories advanced by friends and writers, I concede that there are many possibilities of fact where there is merely conjecture. Some people advance the theory that some dreams are "messages" and perhaps your mind, in its dream state, offered you comfort in your grief and loss with this lovely dream.
That building is a marvelous piece of architecture. I, too, shall google it.
