Dream Interpretation

ajhayesajhayes Northern Michigan Veteran

Last night I had a dream where I visited with the Buddha.

I was traveling with my wife and family in India and our guide said (as we passed a house) "That's
Siddhartha's house" I asked if we could visit and the guide said that people usually don't do that. Then The Buddha walked out, waved, and said "come in." I don't recall what we talked about, but, it was a very friendly discussion and I woke up feeling really good, calm, at peace, and happy.

Does anyone have a guess at what this may mean (if you believe in that sort of thing)? Or is it just wishful thinking.

    I do believe in that sort of thing, but I think I'd take this one at face value - sounds awesome to me.

    That was a pretty good thing to say @federica. B)

    @ajhayes, I think you've just gotten in touch with your true nature and that you're doing the right stuff.

    I've always been a big dream guy. I posted about a dream here about 10 months ago where I was aboard a star ship working on a problem with a partner and that partner happened to be a tardigrade (water bear) about the size of a couch. It was pretty cool because although we didn't speak each others language, we could communicate easily with body language and eye contact.

    I bring this up here because I know you are also a big Star Trek fan. You've probably been watching the new series where in the latest episode there is a tardigrade about the size of a couch on board.

    I swear... The thread is around here somewhere, lol.

    I always thought "dreams bring out what we long for or what we fear" was a pretty good definition.

    @david Haven't seen the newest episode, yet (But, don't worry. I don't get bothered about spoilers).

    @federica Thank you. You are very kind. :)

    For Halloween, coming up in many Buddha lands, I recommend the film 'a dark song'. For those contemplating sweet dreams, start practicing ...

    It strikes me as being a dream where the surface meaning is about travelling, encountering wisdom, and being welcomed, and being succoured by wisdom. It’s a beautiful dream, have you been thinking lately about going travelling in search of wisdom?

    I think about traveling a lot. I (along with my wife, and probably the kids) have wanderlust. We enjoy exploring together and learning new things.
