The Plunge

I dreamed last night of a deceased friend whom I met him some thirty years ago. In the dream, the part I remember most was that he was speaking to me most passionately about NEW EXPERIENCES. He was a dear friend, much respected and cherished. In the dream, it appears he assured me that FRESH EXPERIENCES awaited me, and I needed not to fear them. He was encouraging me to forge forward, to take the plunge. Setting sail is often the tear maker, the heart breaker. We struggle to let go of the familiar, the peaceful shore. Beyond the shore are high waves and killer storms. The shore too is challenging but friendlier and safer. Is life to be a sweet freeway to greet painlessness? Or is it more suited that we face NEW EXPERIENCES? Not all dreams are to be trusted for direction or guidance, but often, we subconsciously may have certain reluctancies. Sometimes, a message will bring assurance or courage to us through a dream. 011322PS
