Here's My Warm Fuzzy Thing
In this dream I stood at the north end of the bridge, and on the other side was Derby....
"You can cross over this bridge, but not the Rainbow Bridge! ' said Derby.
So real-like...there was Derby speaking to me...I answered: "Why not?"
"Not until you purge yourself of all self-reference...conceit, and pride. '...my dearly departed pal was talking to me!
"You mean ego, and all that?" I asked.
"Yup...ego, and all that. It was no problem for me...kind, loving creatures like myself don't have egos like humans do...you have free will...you have a mind to choose. '
"Choose to direct all your reference to the one who runs this place! ' she said...continuing: "This is paradise, pal, and no one with their own ideas is going to change anything here...all is perfect! '
"All of us here just observe the boss doing magnificent things...it's like going to the movies...we're all an audience so to speak...all enjoying the show. '
"That sounds boring...to us humans, anyways"
"That's the problem! ' she said...continuing: " Humans try doing things their own way, but always fail...consider what they have done to their planet. '
I had to agree with that, but answered with: "The damn planet from the start, itself a confounding thing...one cataclysmic thing after another...which ever way we turn we are fighting nature! Don't you think we have to try something on our own to better the place?"
"Ha ha...don't get hot under the collar...I'm going to explain the purpose for it being difficult.
Primarily, it's to purposefully bring out the defiance prevelant in free-willed beings - humans. It's not to test, but to show, reveal what's attendant to being free-willed. More or less to engender a "dog eat dog" world...so to speak.
All free-willed beings, to a certain degree have ego...they're conceited, and have pride according to the circumstances surrounding them. Their character, or demeanor is developed by others, and the circumstances of nature. It's a random thing...like the developement of a tornado...the circumstances of different atmospheric conditions clashing, precipitating it. It's not the will of, nor an act of anyone...just a random, natural, thing.
The same with the character developement of humans...not the will, nor act of anyone, not even the individual...it's random, and natural...in concert with the rest of the confounded planet. Tornados, or people...just as unpredictable. ' Derby said.
Breaking in, I said: "This is something new...but why go to all this trouble, inventing this planet, and cosmos just to show people what conceit is. Why not just give us humans/people an example while in the dimension you're in?"
"Can't! Not possible. In order to show conceit, ego, and so forth...the condition of directing one's reference to one's self can't be done here. In this dimension, the boss is the life source of all of us...any disconnect, no matter how brief, would cause a disconnect between the individual, and the boss, and it's bye-byes forever. Not even the boss could prevent it. That's the danger of being free-willed, and not a robot, or pet. The boss wants you "people" to want the boss as a friend willingly. However, the boss realizes the shortcomings of "people", and wants them to see those for themselves when their reference is only to themselves. It's only when in physical form as humans, that they can experiment with their free-willed nature without disconnecting...so to speak. '
"Okay...so we "see"...we see this show, and tell thing...what do we do with it?" I asked.
"You take it as a "heads up" thing...don't try to get here with an attitude. Leave your ego, conceit, and pride behind when it's time to cross the bridge. If you don't, you won't get in...in fact, you will just evaporate...like you never existed...like the planet, and its cosmos will some day, but I would sure miss you.
Start now...try to be kind, and loving to all...get your mind off yourself, and direct it to the boss now, as if you're about to step foot on the bridge. After all, like myself, you could be "gone" in a flash...nothing like being prepared. '
"Thanks for the advice, but what about those who don't realize this...those who don't believe in the boss, and if so, that they can "get in" by being forgiven, or buy their way in?"
"That's not your concern...we're talking about you. Hey! Know this, that the boss isn't going to beg anyone to join him in his paradise...you have to want it. If perchance you're the only one to want the boss as a friend, what's it to you...to me it means everything that you do. You can't comprehend this place, nor the marvels the boss entertains us with, and forever...by the way. Just imagine, there's no rituals, nothing to study, nobody to have to know, just one thing, and that's that the boss is the boss. We're all equal here...there's no hierarchy, no politics, no schemes. We're just one big happy bunch of friends, all on the same wave-length, enjoying the marvels of the boss. Imagine having intellectual discourse with me...like in this dream, and every other being here, marveling in the boss's entertainment, and showing our appreciation to the boss for sharing with us...for eternity. There ain't nothin' we can dazzle the boss with, except our appreciation, and wanting to be friends. We're the boss's Warm Fuzzy Thing, as the boss is ours. You're gonna like it! '
"Thanks a million Derby...it all makes sense."
"What else...could anything be simpler. I'll be waiting...see you! '
I have discounted everything I have ever heard, read, or thought about previously as to why I am here, and what, or where I will be when I leave.
Here is my interpretation of this dream.
