I'm sorry I haven't posted for awhile. I've been in a bit of a spiritual funk. I have been reading a lot of the posts here and they have helped (at the least the positive ones have and maybe some of the negative ones.) I hope this dream is a signal that my funk is coming to an end. Here you go.
I just had one of those amazing dreams that makes no sense at all, but all the sense in the world both at the same time. It’s really hard to explain, but the feeling it gave me keeps giving me chills long after awakening so here is my best attempt at making sense of it.
From the first point I can remember, I was taking residence in an area that I knew nothing about trying to get somewhere that I don’t really know. All I knew is that I wanted to be there so bad. It seems as if everywhere I turned though I was running into trouble.
The people I met were acting as if they were all looking for trouble, but I could feel my sincerest of intentions throughout. I wasn’t me, but then again there were points in which I couldn’t help but feel myself and I was with someone I knew incredibly well although I can’t recall the person.
I was faced with countless fears and somehow was able to overcome them all. Towards the end of the dream, I was scaling this castle like structure in a land far from home that I knew I had no business being in, but it was like it was part of my destiny waiting on the other side.
Eventually, I made it near the end and had a couple obstacles and fears yet to overcome. I was on the other side of this barbed wire fence doing everything I could to get across it when a person who spoke English noticed me in my struggles. As I climbed across the fence, he helped me over.
However, at that point I had struggled through the barbed wire so much that it had cut and injured me deeply. I wasn’t sure if I could make it through but this older fellow helped me through before my energy failed. The last thing I remember while still being awake in the dream was him introducing me to someone.
He said to me, “Have you met Dr. Koo.” Now this name is quite special to me, although in the dream, I was not myself the way I am as I write this. Somehow, though, a part of me was. It felt as if I was living out a small part of one of my past lives.
As it turns out, Dr. Koo is the name of my company’s late founder here in Taiwan. By the time I got here and joined the company for a while, he passed away without ever meeting him. In that moment of him asking me though, it was like the two lives met and we could understand one another.
Before passing out from the pain and suffering, the feeling that I had accomplished what I set out for come over me and I could see my life today. My reply to that gentlemen was, “You know what sir? It’s a small world out there. A very small world.” Then I passed out from exhaustion.
The next thing I knew I was being nursed to health on the beach from a young girl I met in the underground facilities from before. I was looking at myself and her from the outside as she poured salt water on my wounds as it was all they knew how to do.
Somehow in my mind I realized everything was going to be OK, both for that young man on the beach and for myself as I woke up.
When I awoke, I could feel the interconnectedness of then, now, and forever. Actually typing this out helped me to sort out some of what it meant. I hope it doesn't come off as a bunch of jibberish to you as it has opened my eyes in ways that I couldn't do awake. Now it's time to get back to bed.
