the tao of dreaming

saturday night i had a bunch of convoluted dreams. what i can distinctly remember is that at one point the voice of god (or just some omniscient actor voice) said something like this:

when there is hot, there will be cold.
where there is light, there is dark. …

and so on with a couple of different contrasting pairs of things. i am no longer sure of the exact sentence structure or tense of what was said.

sunday morning i meditated. i had just started reading a chapter in the Tao Te Ching before i sit (or between prayers and sitting) the day before. chapter 2 in the book contains this passage:

“Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.”

weird. the tao knows my dreams. or my dreams know the tao.
