A man appeared on a flying chaise longue. He gave me a key and a book and told me I should prepare to become a spiritual master- but first I needed to do three things:
1. stop eating breakfast
2. stop reviewing movies
3. stop drinking.
It didn't seem too much to ask.
I wondered if I was dreaming and reached in my back pocket and found I still had the key- so obviously this was all happening for real.
I was introduced to the person who would serve as my assistant and manager. I recognised him as a childhood friend. Clearly we had a karmic bond. We were very happy to see one another again.
Brilliant, sparkling golden water was flowing out of a kind of translucent tent towards another translucent tent which was forming round me. I was handed a cup with a spout, full of golden water and told to refresh myself because it would boost my spiritual energy. People were coming to sit at my feet and be taught. My childhood friend was sitting next me on the slightly raised dais and a very old man was lying beside us in the foetal position- maybe sleeping, maybe dead...
Then I awoke.
