This dream was about a peacock walking with a stiff and arrogant stride in the church pulpit area, showing off his beautiful colors to the audience. He knew and felt within himself that had the most beautiful tail feather colors, and that other birds would love to have. He was very proud of all the different colors he had been adorned with, and he wanted everyone watching to see and know how pretty he was. He strutted many times across the pulpit stage area, turning around often looking at his own tail feathers. You see, there was no way he could see underneath his own tail feathers, and he wasn't interested in what was underneath. He only saw the remarkable colors everyone else saw when he was facing them.
As he turned around walking away from the audience, he was unaware how he looked to people when his tail feather were extended out. This angle presented to the audience the most unattractive dull looking brown color that was underneath the beautiful colors he was so proud of. No one said anything to the peacock, but looked with disgust at what was covered up underneath. If the audience had not seen this for themselves, they would have remembered only the beautiful colors. Since this was the last thing the audience observed from the peacock as he walked away, that image would remain with them always.
