Hey, dreams are subconscious, right?
The subconscious moves in mysterious ways, ya know... & likes anything
bright and shiney...
(sorta like Kiki the Ferret [sluggyfreelance.com] at times, right CG?)

1. the Universe is what happens when God wants to play: Divine Play - the
Play of the Divine in its Cosmic Dance, Whimsy - like a child playing alone,
God the Cosmic Dancer has a Whim-wham, too - whose routine is all creatures
and all worlds - the Cosmos flows - tireless unending resistless stream of
God's energy...that _is_ Lila
2. joyous Yin-Yangin' exercise of spontaneity involved in the
giddy-in-the-moment Art of Creation/Destruction... this is also Lila
"...divine chaos ...rumors of chaos have been known to enhance the
...vision.... for the godhead manifests no more of its reality than the limited
grammar of each person's imagination and conceptual system can handle. A second
advantage is suggested by...the possibilty of many gods, ... each one of us
experiencing a unique... revelation. An orderly monistic and monotheistic
system... might succumb to a craving for logical coherence, and trim away some of the
mystery, rich indeterminancy, and tragic ambiguity in a complete numinous
experience. For some temperaments, the ambivalent gentleness and savagery of fate
can be imagined effectively in a godhead split into personified attributes,
sometimes at war, sometimes in shifting alliance." - Vernon Ruland, _Eight
Sacred Horizons: The Religious Imagination East and West_
