In the dream of course there is no resolution of my problem because the resolution of the awkward recurrent dream comes from the outside rather than inside the dream. As a result I never find my clothing and the dream fades.
Clothing can be both a cloak or a statement. It may be both, setting aside the obvious like not freezing to death or toiling in the soil in the burning sun. Whether a cloak or a statement the individual himself will have to supply the answer. One's inner and one's outer man are hand in hand. Leonard's song about "My Secret Life" is a touchstone. One can fool most of the people most of the time but you can't fool the inner man. I don't pretend to be an expert on Jungian ideas, but he was always clear that aside from the principles of interpretation, the ultimate testing comes from the individual whose dream experience it was.
I think in my case I took the boy out of the country, but I couldn't take the country out of the boy.
