Dream Interpretation -- Help Please!

    This morning my brother woke my up with a phone call to help him interpret a dream he has had several times.  I have been searching dream interpretation sites today, but have not found satisfactory answers.  Any help would be appreciated!

    Okay, here is the dream:

    He was driving down a road when he saw a mattress on the side of the road.  Near it was a dead buzzard.  Someone came along and buried the buzzard in the mattress using a large machine. 

    As time went on, the mattress began decaying where the buzzard was buried.  Then someone picked up the mattress and began using it.  My brother seemed to be the only one aware of the decaying spot.  In order not to look like a fool, telling people about the decaying spot, he kept stuffing it with news papers, thus filling the void.

      Hi, I think it is a secret but I believe that it is only important to him, he is making too much of the secret, he should stop worrying about the problem and let it go, as it is not as bad as he thinks. hope this helps. Nell

        Hmm, nice take on that.

      First off- the dreams starts off as he was driving down a road(this would mean whatever event happened, it's obviously not at home) - when he saw a mattress on the side of the road. Near it was a dead buzzard. (then) Someone came along and buried the buzzard in(inside) the mattress using a "large machine".(the 'mattress' resembles a safety issue violation)- the 'dead bird' resembles (something he knows is about something that happened to someone else)- the 'large machine' resembles (someone strong or in a position of power)

      As for the remainder of the dream- 'My brother seemed to be the only one aware of the decaying spot' (can be seen as something that only he knows(as far as he is concerned, no one else knows)) and 'him using paper to fill the void' (would be his way of saying he is covering it up and not saying anything).

      Well, that's my take on it. I hoped I helped.

      Now, I not exactly what my own interpretation will mean on the outcome, because I lack more information on the person who had the dream, his dislike and likes or other behavioral things, plus I don't have age. These things can mean all sorts of things. But, I took my best shot at it.

        This is fitting with the impressions I had about it.  It seems to start out as something that is distant from him, but that he has personally taken on.

        Extra information: 
        He is 30.
        The dream has been occurring for several months. 
        He is divorced, and his current relationship is rocky.
        In the past two weeks he has quit drinking.
        He currently drives truck for a living.

          I have a couple more questions.

          I understand he drives truck for a living, so he is on the road a lot?

          So, it's to understood that he sleeps in his truck?

          Because, that would be the safety issue violation and if he does spend time on the road, in combination with his quit drinking, would lead to understand that he drove drunk(safety issue violation) while trucking a load, and might be feeling guilty, because he recently on a haul and got stopped by the authorities for drunk driving and wants to hide the fact.

          If he currently drive truck on only local, day runs and back- the above could still apply.

          What made him drive drunk, would probably be attributed to either the divorce(if there are problems) or current relationship.

          Again, I'm only going from what I have been given. For more, I would need to actually interact with the person and persons in their life. And, that's too much and not my place. What I offer is my honest view, as I have come to understand people.

          Again, I hope I helped.

            -He is on the road alot, but mostly just day trips.  He has made a few long hauls, where he did sleep in the truck.
            -No drunk driving, in a number of years -- last time he got a DUI they told him jail time would be served for the next one.  Also, drunk driving a semi would lead to long term loss of his licence.
            -Relationship problems do involve the drinking, and they are what led to him quitting. 

            I understand that you don't have much to go on, but I do appreciate your efforts.

              I realize: the drunk driving part might be hard to accept? and if it is, as you say, then it will come out to daylight, in a manner of time, sooner or later, it would be revealed.

              But, don't discount the possibility, otherwise you'll be shocked beyond all, if true, without at least realizing there is a remote possibility. Cover all bases, as to lessen the impact.

              Second, providing the above is NOT true, then I would take a different position. You say that drinking was part of a problem with the relationship.

              Whose problem? Him or Her?

              What exactly was the problem? Alcoholism..a choice. If so, there is a huge problem. Seek help immediately.

              If the drinking is causing friction, based on emotional attitudes- then some drinks too much, but isn't an alcoholic. Drinking and some people, don't mix. Their actions get slack, if they started depressed, then it gets worse. Even, if a person starts happy, there is no guarantee they are going to stay that way. When introducing alcohol into any situation is or can have, devastating effects.

              Example: I used date this lady, and she loved her 'tequila' shots, and she would down them one after another. After a few, she would loosen her attitude and use her sex appeal for all it's worth. Why? Because, she could. She knew and understood how far she could push me, to see if she could make me jealous. Because I told her I don't get jealous. So, she would test my reactions to what she does. Now do realize: this is in a small bar, roughly 100 people tops, and she flirt using all her wilds. Just random people, man and women. Our relationship was based on the philosophy that I 100% trusted her AND I give her all the rope she needs to hang herself. I don't get jealous. I am confident enough in our relationship that I trusted her completely, without doubt. When we were out and about- in a bar, she showed up with me and she is leaving with me. What she does to amuse herself is free territory.

              How ever, the relationship I had is quite different, but I think you get my point. She could have done something or he did something, and it's starting to really get to him, because it's re-occurring.

              Again, I hope I helped.

      You're way too literal.

    Whatever is being hidden will resurface, regardless of how much effort goes into keeping it that way.

    Thank you all.  I'm guessing you are right about a secret that he longs to keep hidden.  Nell, I hope you are right. Though Tantrum, your assessment may be the most correct!

    If its a dream interpretation your brother need, you sure it is a good idea to have anyone interpret that dream?

    And it isn't advisable to take advices from a dream in general anyway.

      I normally don't go for just anyone interpreting a dream, but after looking at numerous sites, and finding that the symbolism  did not mesh, I figured it was best to get some random opinions.  Plus, I have seen some really well done dream interpretation on this site.  It is full of bright, helpful people.

      As to whether or not is best to take advice from dreams, I don't really know.  I think it is advisable to be aware of dreams that come strongly or multiple times.  I do believe they have meaning, even if it is only a look inside of one's self.

        I am a Christian and thus do believe in dream interpretation, just that it needs to be done by someone reliable.

        Anyway, take everything with a pinch of salt ya? It will be disappointing if the interpretation do not match up the reality.

    Sounds like he saw a crime of some sort and his subconscious is trying to keep from remembering it.

    A huge thank you to all of you who gave a suggestion! 

    This morning I shared these with him, and he said they confirmed what he had suspected. He was pleased, because now he doesn't feel like the situation is so out of his control.  Again, thank you so much.
