I know that dreams use symbols to provide a perspective. I'm not sure — or, rather — I can't say that I believe ALL the symbols have specific meanings. What if some dreams provide an answer, or a question about one's spiritual life? Could it be that God speaks to us in our dreams?
Shortly after Divine Mercy Sunday, I had a dream that I was standing in a glass house — a greenhouse, so to speak. It was no larger than 10 feet wide by 12 feet long. I was looking up through the glass ceiling, at a tall rectangular copper-colored glass building, probably about 40 stories high, when I heard a warning call, "lookout below." It didn't register that the warning was for me, and within seconds, the copper-colored building began to fall. I quickly turned away from it and bent down on my knees. I covered my face with my hands. When the building had fallen, I stood up only to discover that there were large glass shards embedded in the back of my head and body.
A woman came over and began pulling the shards out of my head, though I was bleeding profusely. Then, I saw a man pushing a large bathtub full of water over to where we were standing, and I thought to myself, "Oh, my God. I'm going to die."
And then I woke up.
I was frightened, to the point of awakening. I called a friend and told him the dream. He said, "…but, you were washed in the water right?" Well, no I wasn't. I woke up too soon. I came to believe in my own heart and mind that the dream meant for me to pray for the people in that building.
I have no other ideas what this dream meant, other than it was a spiritual answer to my questions. If anyone who reads this blog has any suggestions, I would be happy to hear what you think.
Thanks so much.
