Chapter 79 - The dream of the scribe.

79,1. In the morning when the sun was already rising above the mountains and I and the disciples were as usual already outside, also the Pharisee and the scribe woke up. They washed themselves according to the strict custom of the Jews, and the Pharisee asked then to the scribe if he perhaps had a dream.”

79,2. He said (the scribe): “Yes friend, as I said before we went to sleep, but I only dreamt foolish things that were mixed up.

79,3. Listen: I was between high mountains, and wherever I was looking, I saw only gold- and silver mines, and I saw a lot of mineworkers who took those metals in big lumps out of the mountains. However, when I saw that metal in such great quantities before me, it lost all its value for me, and when the mineworkers brought up more and more of that metal to the daylight I became scared, and I began to look for a way out. But wherever I went to escape from it, the way was always blocked with the biggest lumps of gold and silver, so that it was impossible to get over it and to find a way out.

79,4. Then in my great fright and almost complete desperation I turned to a mineworker who was standing near to me and I asked him to show me a way out from that gold- and silver canyon.

79,5. But with a very rude voice he cried out to me: ‘There is no way out here! Who once gets lost in this canyon will come out of it no more, for we can immediately see when someone ends up with us, and we are blocking him the way out as soon as he admires our treasures. Already many mighty and prominent people have found their downfall in this canyon, and you will not be one of the last.’

79,6. After these very threatening words of that rude mineworker who then walked immediately away from me, my fear and fright were at the top, and because of that I lost conscience completely and fell to the ground, and in that bad condition I came into a new dream again.

79,7. Then a man came to me who asked me with a serious voice what I was doing in that place.

79,8. I said: ‘Why do you ask me, I do not even know when, how and why I came here, for I never wanted that, and nevertheless I am here.’

79,9. Then the man disappeared, and soon after that, I saw a malicious animal coming at me. Then I became even more frightful. However, I saw a lightning from the sky which hit that evil animal of which I cannot describe its shape. It started to twist around and to rear, and soon it fell into the deep abyss, and I felt more at ease.

79,10. I stood up and hurried away from that spot, to a little place that was rather far away from me, and it seemed to be friendly and inviting. Soon I came near that little place. I saw very beautiful gardens where there were a big number of all kinds of fruit trees, which I did not know and of which the branches and twigs were full of the most extraordinary fruits.

79,11. In one of those gardens I also saw women and girls of great beauty, and I lusted to talk to them. But my lust was soon over, because when the girls and the women saw me, they started to scream and they ran away from me.

79,12. I thought by myself: ‘Why is that?’

79,13. Then I heard a voice from a hidden place: ‘This is our enemy! Flee away from him, so that here also he will not take away from us our possessions, our chastity and innocence! You, our men, grab him and bind him firmly, and throw him into a dungeon where frogs and snakes are dwelling!’

79,14. When I heard that, I started to run over stones and stubbles. Finally I was so tired that I fell to the ground, and then I woke up.

79,15. Truly, that certainly was a foolish and bad dream, and I am still completely wet from the sweat of fear over my whole body.

79,16. What do you say now, friend, of this bad-foolish dream of mine?”
