There seems to be a lot of prophecy going on in today's world!
Maybe it's due to the ease of putting out words on the internet, or maybe, just maybe there is an actual increase in spirituality amongst the inhabitants of this blue marble on which we reside.
Either way, I've seen much more spiritual awakening lately from many sources. Countless visions of apocalyptic futures have been scribed from countless sources. Some are believable, some are downright humorous!
This awakening has been manifesting itself in a multitude of ways. It seems that those who were of a spiritual nature have been growing in spirit. Those who are of a material nature have been growing in materialism. Those who are of a kind heart have increased their kindness and those of a cold heart have been getting colder!
My observation is that no one will change the path they are on at this point in time. No matter how much they hear or read, they are not about to change from their chosen path. Those who will do good, let them continue doing good, those who would do evil, let them continue to do evil!
Much spiritual energy is misspent trying to change one creature into another. The only change we can successfully make is change within ourselves.
Smoking Mirrors has a good post on spirituality today, well worth the read ( if you are inclined to such things), Visible also has a link to a "prophecy" called "Has Jesus Christ Spoken?" which is also an interesting read, although for me, it has little merit. Nonetheless, there are some good tidbits in it you may store up for times of need!
Now, dear reader, as for the title of this post........
As of late, I have been having some strangely vivid dreams. I'm not about to say they are prophetic in any sense of the word, but they do have a message of future events (at least for me!).
The latest dream involved being out on what appeared to be a normal day. A sudden flash of light appeared and instinctively I dove for cover behind some debris that was near by. As I peered over the debris I witnessed a mushroom cloud rising on the horizon at what I guessed was 50 miles from my location!
Immediately there was much chaos (and I'm sure much death and destruction at ground zero of the explosion) but strangely, there was an almost immediate sense of camaraderie and oneness of purpose with those people that were around me. These were complete strangers to me, but nonetheless there was a unity that I have never experienced in my waking world.
The short of this is, I came away from this dream with the knowledge that even though apocalyptic catastrophes are going to be made manifest, much good will also be bestowed upon those whose spiritual foundations are firm.
Another dream involved me being chased by a group of men, dressed in black, with strange hats upon their heads! The overwhelming feeling was that they were out to cause severe spiritual damage to me, if not death itself.
As I was running from these men, I ran straight into the arms of the most grotesque, hideous creature imaginable. My words to this creature were "I am food" it's reply was "No, you are not!". Strangely though, instead of feeling fear of this creature, I was overcome by a feeling of peace and tranquility and safety. I came away from this dream feeling that I should not judge by appearance..........but trust that inner voice! Help can come from the place or person you least expect!
Other dreams have been showing my weakness to temptations.......these were apparently just warnings on areas in my life that need improvement. Warnings that I may not be as strong as I think I am in spiritual matters.
Anyway, this old man has been having some dreams lately.......................maybe if we listen closely, we just might learn something in these end days!
