Had the funniest outrageous dream after taking in a message from Dr. Dream re: being more specific in what I order from the menu offered by the Reality Cafe of the Universe. In this dream I find myself in a restaurant, having a hard time placing an order. People who come in after me get served and leave before I even get to order. Finally a waitress takes my order. The waitress (representing an aspect of me) shook her head at me, went to the kitchen to place the order, turned around at the entrance, and stuck her tongue out at me as far as it would go, three times, rolling her eyes. Along with that she made vigorous hand gestures to the kitchen staff, as if to say: “What do you expect the cooks to do with this kind of order?”
Sticking out the tongue as far as it would go (three times!!! I better pay attention :-D) reminds me of the yogic posture of the lion, representing a display of power. The Dutch expression: “Showing the back of your tongue” is about expressing your true self without holding back. Naturally it also has to do with language. Words have power. Loving that waitress for being so colorful, showing me to use my power wisely rather then to waste it.
