It is short and already written, I just have to type it up, here:
November 27th morning, 2001
Flagstaff, Arizona USA
Last night… I dreamt I was looking from the main land, above ground level, down the peninsula which ends in Greece, and the Mediterranean Sea. (I drew a map as well)…
There was a green colored area along the coast line (below me on my right) which I knew was spiritually important and it was quite large … and there were other “dots” or areas on the land I was being shown from above (upon waking I don’t remember their exact placement). The dream was about the spiritual importance of these places …
There was someone in the dream, unseen, instructing me that “One Part of the New Humanity” would emerge from Greece (or Crete), and that they would draw upon various areas in this (vision, map, view) of the peninsula ending in Greece. That is, they would learn about pottery from this area (and a big dot would be shown to me), or learn about some thing else from that area and again the vision was rather interactive with the lesson … and this went on for a while, with each area lighting up as it was being explained to me about what would be drawn upon culturally and spiritually … It was some kind of New Humanity lesson, or something. [For more about The New Humanity, as explained by Meher Baba see Discourses.]
I remember hearing the word: “Corfu” and I remember part of the map marked, “Cephalonia” but upon waking I couldn’t draw where they are located on the map. I remember waking up and feeling very peaceful. I thought about writing it down then, but went back to sleep until 7am, when I got up and wrote it all down.
P.S. The night before (Nov. 26th evening), during my time with Baba alone (I have a spare room for this), His photograph was pulsing and throbbing with much energy. I felt something was being given to me – starting with that – and so after this time with Baba I went right to sleep and had this dream (for what it is worth).

Xia: Five days ago Laurent sent me this dream for inclusion in Come (True). It is the 5th entry. Every night the unexpected has hampered my best effort to get this on-line… And then, today, he forwarded me a document he’d composed, which included some of Meher Baba’s expressed wisdom on the New Humanity (from Volume I of Meher Baba’s Discourses, linked to above). When I read these words, “The coming civilisation of the New Humanity shall be ensouled not be dry intellectual doctrines, but by living spiritual experience,” I realized that not only had I spent five days immersed in spiritual experiences directly related to the New Humanity (because of reading/contemplating Laurent’s dream and in the moments I otherwise would have input it)… but that Meher Baba’s words are a perfect commentary on Laurent’s dream. They were, I now know, what I was waiting for.
Laurent: So this is a classic example for me of a number of things: When I said above, “someone in the dream, unseen, instructing me” this is a type of dream I have where it is NOT Meher Baba, but like some angel or agent giving me ultra clear instructions. Also, in a case like this I am suspended in mid-air, looking over or down on things. I wrote this dream out for Don E. Stevens in 2002 shortly before we moved to England, in April of that same year, (so I could work with him on his authorized biography, which work continues. He is now 91). I kept the email formatting to give the context of my sharing with Don.]
