    Dream meanings, my recent spiritual experiences.

    I have a strong interest in dreams and what some of them may mean to the dreamer but I'd like some outside input as well (mainly for different POV) The last few days have been kind of difficult for me so I prayed to God to show me how to cope. Now the last time things were really tough I prayed hard to God to show me if I was on the right path, I felt lost and confused and I wanted to give it all up and start all over. That night I dreamt the tv came on at a friends and a song blared saying "carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done, lay your weary head to rest, and don't you cry no more." this is a real song, but not one I listen to, not even a genre I listen to. so I woke up smiled and thanked God for to me, he told me not to give up.

    Now I'm still looking for gainful employment, things have been difficult again between my girlfriend and I and though I don't feel as lost as before, I've gotten very weary. I had a discussion with my girlfriend and the strain is getting to her, now I know her well and when she gets upset she becomes irrational and won't hear any reason. aside from that though she says things she doesn't mean, gets over emotional but also says things that make me clue in to where her heart really is, so as Otis Redding said I try a little tenderness. not easy because you still get that feeling that things won't work themselves out and you get the instinctual reaction to strike back and get into a serious fight.

    ANYWAY, last night I prayed to God again to show me how to cope, I had two separate moments in my dream that I thought were messages from God. The first moment was me at a computer, the computer was giving an error, there were two choices, repair or ignore, I clicked on ignore as I was frustrated, a dialogue box popped up that read, "ignoring the problem won't fix it or make it go away, it will make things worse, repair is the better option" I woke up right away and thought "That must be my message" so I remembered it. the second moment was longer, basically this guy and myself (i think the guy was Djimon Hounsou) were in a forest and we had to rescue someone who was being held captive. so we got to him (it was late at night in the forest) Djimon, ran ahead into the shadows, the guy we were rescuing ran to a tree, I saw the sillhouette of a panther cross where Djimon had ran, I was at another tree. I stayed still and the panther came towards me, he snarled, in my head I remember Daniel in the Lions den, and I closed my eyes and said God will protect me. I imagined a barrier between myself and the panther, put up by God. I opened my eyes the panther turned it's back then turned towards me a swiped its claw, it didn't hit me or harm me then it walked away. I ran towards the escape route and woke up soon afterwards. Thinking to myself, this must be a message for me as well. Have faith and all will be well. God will see you through it.

    Now I won't say these messages conflict, esp if we take into account Freud's idea that we are all the characters in our dreams. Djimon Hounsou might represent the cold part of me, I was there to make a rescue but I left on my own and ignored the danger to save myself the trouble (like the computer screen) I was the guy who needed to be rescued and I was me. I stayed back to complete the mission even though there was extreme danger, (when I saw the panther I thought of fleeing and leaving the guy on his own) I put my life in God's hands and trusted he'd see me through so I could fulfill my mission. now that's the sense that I got from the dream. God answered me when I needed Him to. anyone have a take on this, a perspective or even some similar experiences? do dreams mean lot to you?>

    Same way you know he's not doing it when you're awake, by Faith. God will protect me from my mistakes.

    Dreams are a very interesting subject.

    Fascinating really. There are some cultures which place a lot of importance on them, and seek to sort of, well....if you can control yourself in your dream time you are living twice. Some people can achieve this skill. With any luck Nylah will come and post here.

    Generally, because people do not really have control over their dreams, this was seen as the Divine communicating with the individual. Your mind is relatively under your control at every time other than during dreaming. The Divine could enter through the dream consciousness and deliver messages etc.

    Personally, I think it is a little bit sideways for God to not communicate clearly and to leave people guessing. The danger I think lies in what we perceive the message to be, what we look for as to it's representations, and the consequences to reality accordingly.

    From what I can see and for what it is worth which may be nothing, I don't see where you have told yourself anything you don't know already.

    If in your dream God revealed to you the answer to Einstein's Unified Field Theory- which would really and truly seriously help the world and you, then I think you'd be cooking with fire.

    Lyrics to an old rock song, or a mac pc commercial, not so much.
    a noble stroke he lifted high that hung not but swift with tempest fell On Satan's proud crest- no sight nor swift thought, less could his shield such ruin intercept; 10 paces huge he back recoil'd...
