As in the example, the powerfully regenerative side of our inner life or feelings; the world of experience we have created inwardly by our thoughts, meditation, actions; our sense of contact with life itself.

Occasionally baptism, marriage, death, the mother or refuge.
Walking past church: not entering into contact with the best in us—or our anger towards dogma. Example: The priest was going to question and assault my friend in connection with some opinion he had offended the church with. I went to stand near him to give him moral suppon, and physical help if necessary. I hated seeing anybody degraded.
The priest saw my move and sent three thug type men to shoulder me out. They surrounded me to knock me down. I went beserk and knocked them all over the place with kicks and punches’ (John P). In the example John sees the dogmas of the Church as an assault and degradation of human qualities of love and moral suppon. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
