Those Who Are Near and Dear to Us

Recently my grandfather asked me if I wanted to play a game of chess. I politely turned him down. I am not sure what reason I gave at the time, but suddenly to my surprise I woke up. It was just a dream.

When I woke up I was upset that I did not take the time to play with him doing what he liked. In real life, my grandfather had passed years ago and I could not believe that I had a chance to play chess with him in a dream and turned it down. I will say in my defense that in the dream I did not realize that he had passed on in real life, and is not quite as accessible as before. As I was lying there thinking about it, something dawned on me. My son asks me to play chess all the time. Sometimes I do, but not nearly as often as I can. I thought about the people in my life who are looking for my time and attention and how much they mean to me. I thought about how although work and my business endeavors are very important, at the end of the day it’s all about the people in my life, the wonderful souls who I have been blessed with having in my life. I also thought about how it may not always be as convenient in the future for us to spend time together. I decided my connection with the people in my life who are looking for my time is so important that I must value our time together more. In the end I was thankful for the dream and my reaction in the dream because it serves as just one great reminder of what really matters in life.

I love discovering the mysteries of God and The Universe. My goal is to allow as much of the infinite to come through as freely as possible as I live my life as a father, husband, son, brother friend, meditation teacher, writer, and business owner. I teach meditation, interpret dreams, write, and try to share as much as I learn along the way as possible.
