My parents were in my dreams for 2 consecutive nights. I never saw their faces nor did they say anything to me. In both cases, I woke up feeling unsettled. I felt hurried and rushed as if I was late. I didn’t know what to make of it.
A few days later, I was reading Natalie Goldberg’s The True Secret of Writing.
I turned the page to Part One and saw this:
“I beg to urge you everyone:
Life and Death are a Great Matter
Awaken, awaken, awaken
Time Passes quickly
Do not waste this precious life”
— Evening chant, written on the wooden han
Those unsettling feelings quickly came back. Was Life trying to tell me something through my dreams? Maybe it’s time for a change.
