I’ve been debating all week whether or not to write about this dream I had. First off let me say this, I’m not religious, at all. I’ve been to church, but only when I was young and my mother forced me. Other than that I find organized religion quite appalling in general. With that said, I’ll get into this awkward dream.
The dream starts out with me treading water close to the shore. There are people around. I’m not sure whether I know any of these people or not. Ahead of me onshore is a beach and a cave behind that. I can’t see inside the cave. Behind me is more water. The premise of the dream is that there’s a choice to be made. Either I go forward into the cave, with God (in this instance God wasn’t Jesus, Allah etc just God) or I go back into the open ocean. So I ask this guy, who looks scraggly and unkept like he’s been at sea for awhile, what’s in the open ocean. He says to me “The Federalist Papers”. The Federalist Papers? Yes really. I had a dream about God vs The Federalist Papers. Anyway, if you don’t know what the Federalist Papers are, read this:
The nameless scraggly guy chooses The Federalist Papers and immediately he begins to regret his decision. He discovers that he made the wrong choice. It reminded me of this scene from Indiana Jones:
The only difference was the guy didn’t turn to dust. Instead he jumps on me in the water in an attempt to save himself. At this point I make my decision and head towards the cave. With this guy attached to me I cross into the shadow of the caves entrance. As soon as I hit this point the guy on my back is forcibly removed from me. It felt like each of our skins were Velcro and we were being separated. It wasn’t painful it just felt strange. Next thing I know Ann is shaking me awake because I’m making a loud humming noise in my sleep, a noise that I’m pretty sure was a yell in my dream. That was it. I remember Ann asking me what my bad dream was about, I was so embarrassed and dumbfounded that I had to tell her “It was about God and the Federalist Papers” She probably thought I was crazy. Anyways, that’s my strange dream, what do you guys think?
