"Big" Dream 6 (March, 2014)
(from the series of "Big" dreams)
This dreamer is a high-powered businessman who was stressed from his work in finances. He had the following dream (personal details of which I have omitted) which, if nothing else, served to relax him.
The dreamer has spent the night in a public sleeping facility and awakes to find his favorite pants are missing as is his wallet. He searches but can not find them. After a series of events that were of a personal nature, the dreamer notices that everything in his environment is slowing down. He is watching the people, and it seems they are moving in slow motion. It occurs to the dreamer that they are not slowing down but that time itself is slowing down, and he thinks that this must be the "End of Time" that the early Christian books spoke of. He is not a practicing Christian, but this "revelation" makes him think to himself that, of all the religions, maybe Christianity was right about the subject of time.
The dream continues with everything moving slower and slower, and the dreamer realizes time is running out for everything. He thinks about what he should do and realizes immediately that nothing to do with money will make any difference from now on. "What's left?" he thinks, and runs through his hobbies and other activities. He thinks about wandering off by himself but realizes he wants to spend the rest of time with his family. He wakes up relaxed, a feeling that is unusual for him.
My only comment here is the same question I asked regarding the other "Big" dreams: Is it a dream that is a compensation for the dreamer's tension — the only way his body has to get him to relax, as it were? Or is it a sign he will die soon? Or is it a sign that he is moving into a stage of life where the end is in sight but not that he will be dying within a week or a month or even a year or even ten or twenty or thirty years? Or is it something about the world at large, something bigger than him? Is it that the end of the world, the end of Time is coming?
As with the other dreams, I am not sure.
