Dreaming of the Dalai Lama

What a surreal dream I had last night! There I am, walking my 2 dogs, and we come across a blue-tiled wall with a glass screen to one side, rather like in a walk-in shower/wet room. And who should be standing there, with a white cat nestled in the crook of his arm, but His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself, complete with his saffron and scarlet robes. Beaming his happy smile at me.

I stop and move towards the Dalai Lama. As I do so, the thought runs through my mind that the minute I open my mouth and speak to him, I’m no doubt going to burst into tears and break down. 

And then the Dalai Lama speaks. He says, very clearly in my dream, “Tell me, child, all that burdens your soul”. And yup, I burst into tears.

I don’t remember what else was said between he and I, for a stream of people suddenly appear around me. Each one seems to be suggesting some form of help for me, offering alternatives and choices, each in their own way. 

One of them turns to me and asks, “So what were you and His Holiness talking about?”

I reply,”I don’t remember, because you guys appeared all of a sudden, and now His Holiness appears to have vanished. But I guess maybe you guys have come to assist me, so Thank You”.

Make what you will of it, I have no explanation for this dream, other than perhaps it was my subconscious seeking solutions to the problems I’ve been having lately. Certainly I would never have expected to meet the Dalai Lama in a dream…but that did happen, so I’ll be taking a look through my books on His Holiness, to see what other insights I might be able to glean from this.
