So many thanks for helping me out with this one. Although, I have been writing my dreams quite regularly, but what was missing is the deeper probe into them, and reading them as you just did through your questions and as I could have through my earlier training with you and now through books.
“No dream image has one and only one specific meaning; there are of course multiple layers and many dimensions embedded in each. With that caveat in mind, one of many different ways into a dream is to approach the figures we encounter there as aspects of oneself.”
Yes, I am exploring the figures as aspects of myself. And, all of what you wrote strikes a chord. With much gratitude.
