Remembrance Day -or- War and Peace in the Global Theatre
Today is 11.11. 2013, as Canadians We celebrate "Remembrance Day".
Remembrance Day 1977 is the day I began to formally write down my dreams. For me, this day constitutes Marcel Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past", and today it has been 36 years, since I began my journey to understand the psychodynamics of individual and collective memory. It is in this context, that I remember my own life, my interpersonal relationships, my dreams and the collective dreaming and waking life on the planet.
Today, we remember those that died to protect our freedom, lest We forget. For me, Remembrance Day, remembers and portrays "War and Peace in the Global Village" (read dream interpretations, Part 1, Part 2).
There are many dreams found at the International Institute for Dream Research website that speak and remember about war, genocide, murder, hatred and so on. Here are some;
- "Anatomy of Destructiveness"
- "The Culture Wars"
- "American Military-Industrial Complex"
- "The Little Big Horn"
- "Remembering the Battle of the Bulge"
- "Effects of the Iran-Iraq War"
- "Dial M for Murder"
- "Killers of the Dream in the Global Theatre"
- "The Vimy Ridge Memorial"
We can give the final words to Lavender "Popeye" Wolfmeyer out of the film "The Upside of Anger";
"People don't know how to love. They bite rather than kiss. They slap rather than stroke. Maybe it's because they recognize how easy it is for love to go bad, to become suddenly impossible... unworkable, an exercise of futility. So they avoid it and seek solace in angst, and fear, and aggression, which are always there and readily available. Or maybe sometimes... they just don't have all the facts."
