This morning I awakened from a dream. I did not like what I saw while I was sleeping. I went back to sleep and to my surprise, there it was again. I was back in the same tormenting dream. I found myself asking, why did I have this dream? Why were my friends acting in this manner? I could not come up with an answer, but somehow I knew there was one waiting. Then just before getting up, it seemed to come out of nowhere, visions from the night before in my waking life. I had an opportunity to be supportive to someone and I failed to act. It seemed like such a small thing at the time, but now upon review I see, I truly failed to act. I could have been more supportive.
At first I was ashamed. I saw myself in negative light. Then I remembered my lesson and things were so clear. Take care of today fully, and tomorrow will take care of itself. It seemed to be the new theme for my new life and everywhere I go. Sure it is a simple lesson, but it runs quite deep. If I would have taken care to act in the moment even in what seemed like a small situation at the time, I would not have had the unpleasant dream over and over that symbolized the outcome of such situations.
So what else do I take from this? One thing is that we are highly connected to God and the universe. One of those ways is through our dreams. They can tell us so much if we are open to getting the lesson. Second is to make haste while the sun is still shining. Be the person who you are meant to be today and act as you know you should act in each moment. If you can do this, life will be beautiful.
Thank you that was beautiful and much needed.
