Where You Go In The Hereafter Depends On What You Go Hereafter

This morning I had a wonderful dream in which one of my teacher, Mr. Ambrister’s students, was walking in, about to attend one of my meditation classes.  In real life, she has not been to the classes in some time, because of her work schedule.  It was nice to see that she was still with the group and wanting to attend.  We talked for a minute or two, and then I awakened.  When I woke up from the dream, it felt nice to have been teaching in the dream realm.  At times I have had dreams in which I was teaching and truly felt like the class had taken place.  Some times I even used the subject matter I had in my dream for my next subject when giving a talk.  This was sort of like that.  It was real on some level, even if it just told me where her mind was.  What I liked most about the dream was that I was doing what I love in my dream, teaching.  It may not sound like much but I could have had any kind of dream the imagination allows.  I could have been worried about something or in an unpleasant situation, but no I was doing what I love, teaching the meditation path.

That same morning my youngest son Jordan told me that he had the coolest dream.  Jordan is six years old by the way.  He said he was some character from his video game and was being a hero.  As soon as Jordan told me about the dream I thought about the similarities between our dreams.  I knew it had something to do with my dream even before he got into talking about it.  But as he talked about it, I found it interesting how we both went someplace we liked and enjoyed in our dreams.  As he talked about his dream I thought “of course he would dream such a dream. This is what is on his mind and what he spends a lot of time doing, playing video games and imagining that he is a super hero.”  Then I thought, “it’s the same thing with me and my dream.  I went to where I have been going.”  As my teacher would say “where you go in the hereafter, depends on what you go hereafter.”  Spend your days thinking about and teaching meditation, spirituality, and loving it, and your dreams at night, and your tomorrows will reflect this.

Want to know what tomorrow will be like? Want to know what type of dreams you will have?  Look at what you are doing now.   Look at what you are thinking about now.  Look at what you are talking about now.  Where you go in the hereafter, depends on what you go hereafter.
