Dream #1

Freud and Jung started modern man on the path to understanding.   They weren’t the first and they won’t be the last.

For atheists that don’t believe in God, I ask them to think if they have ever had an out of Time/Place Phenomenon(Psychic, I hate that word) experience and second if they have had any Pre-cognitive dreams.   That’s a litmus test for me that God is real.   I have pre-cognitive dreams all the time.  Frequently I’ll have a  dream and it’s in a totally unknown place with totally unknown people.   When the event happens months later, I am usually in a mid-sentence conversation with someone and suddenly realize “I dreamed this months ago”.   I then look around at the environment and realize that everything is exactly in its place just like in the dream.

An interesting dream I had:

I’m out on the golf course on hole #9 having just chipped for the green when another ball comes whizzing by me.  I’m not happy so I rush back to the front driving area of the hole and encounter an old lady trying to golf.  I start in right away about how she doesn’t know how to golf and that she almost killed me with that last shot.   After I calm down I offer to show her how to golf and start to tee up the ball.   I patiently explain to her that the fundamentals of golf require A, B, C, & D.   I swing the club and my ball goes flying.  It’s a good shot.  

She just looks at me and says that she has her own way.  “Ok, How do you golf?”, I ask.   She proceeds to get a ball out her bag and then she walks off to the side by a small tree. She’s off the shooting area now and I have no idea what she’s going to do.   She places the ball about four foot high in the crux of the tree.   I start laughing almost hysterically.   She draws her club back and swings and hits the ball.  The ball goes flying.  I watch it as it careens the trees, it bounces and lands and rolls about twenty foot past the ball that I just shot.  She then turns to me and smiles politely  and says “We each have our own way, can’t you see that?”   When I woke up from the dream it still took me awhile to realize what I had dreamed.  I finally realized that it wasn’t a golf lesson at all, it was a life lesson.

Later on I found a quote that could have been quite apt coming from the wise old lady in my dream:

Forget your opponents; always play against par

    No one laughs at God in a hospital
    No one laughs at God in a war
    No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

    No one laughs at God when the doctor calls after some routine tests
    No one’s laughing at God when it’s gotten real late
    And their kid’s not back from that party yet
    No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
    No one’s laughing at God when they see the one they love
    Hand in hand with someone else and they hope they’re mistaken

    No one laughs at God when the cops knock on their door
    And they say we’ve got some bad news, sir
    No one’s laughing at God when there’s a famine, fire or flood

    But God can be funny
    At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke
    Or when the crazies say He hates us
    And they get so red in the head you think they’re ’bout to choke

    God can be funny
    When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
    And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
    Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
    God can be so hilarious
    Ha ha
    Ha ha

    No one laughs at God in a hospital
    No one laughs at God in a war
    No one’s laughing at God when they’ve lost all they’ve got
    And they don’t know what for

    No one laughs at God on the day they realize that the last sight they’ll ever see
    Is a pair of hateful eyes
    No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes

    But God can be funny
    At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke
    Or when the crazies say He hates us
    And they get so red in the head you think they’re ’bout to choke

    God can be funny
    When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
    And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
    Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
    God can be so hilarious

    No one laughs at God in a hospital
    No one laughs at God in a war
    No one laughs at God in a hospital
    No one laughs at God in a war
    No one laughing at God in a hospital
    No one’s laughing at God in a war

    No one’s laughing at god when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

    No one’s laughing at God
    No one’s laughing at God
    No one’s laughing at God
    No one’s laughing at God
    We’re all laughing with God—
