Dreamed on December 16, 2016 at 2:50am
A game played against The Devil. In a middle-income residential neighborhood, nice medium sized houses made of brick, plush green grass, full green trees, and quiet streets. It’s late noon, a gray day. I’ve played this game many times before. (I feel I’ve dreamt this many times before but never remember because it always escapes my consciousness OR because it’s suppose to be kept secret/trapped in my unconscious). I run as fast as I can up hills and through the neighborhood trying not to be seen and caught. At one point I make it to a small middle school that is gathering the kids outside in the school bus depot area. However, The Devil freezes the kids and staff from moving in order to flesh me out of the crowed. I still myself in order to not be noticed.

No longer dedicating time or energy to fighting the wrong battles, I, instead, move toward the initiation of my knowledge of the hidden, reaping the rewards of a spiritual warrior.
Strategy in Waking-Reality:
After spending the past two weeks running in the direction of attempting to understand a recent disagreement, I realized I was fighting the wrong battle; inappropriately using my tools (i.e. my time, energy, knowledge, emotions, & spirit), for my adversary was unequipped in the realm of spiritual warriorship. I now run in the direction, and reap the rewards, of those whom assist my initiation of the hidden.
