On March 29, 2014, I experienced an intriguing dream that I instinctively jotted down in my Evernote. This dream recently resurfaced, providing an eerie sense of clarity and a bridge between an old way of thinking and a new perspective. I encourage you to read it and share your immediate thoughts. I will later share my own interpretation.
In the dream, my friend Marcus and I were driving, chasing the vision of a Lamborghini he had seen in downtown Norfolk earlier that day. We found the coveted car amongst a row of luxury vehicles. As we stopped to take a photo, the drivers, clad in black-tie attire, entered a nearby mansion. I followed their trail, leaving Marcus behind.
Stepping into the mansion felt like stepping into a realm of luxury, a place reserved for millionaires. But as morning arrived, the scene shifted dramatically. The mansion was filled with impoverished people, many of whom I had seen earlier in black-tie attire. Conversations with one of them revealed that these individuals had lost their jobs due to the Chinese owners closing the business.
Suddenly, a van filled with money appeared, and I seized the opportunity to stash it away. However, the Chinese owners threatened to demolish the mansion if the money was not returned. Soon after, a plane flew towards the mansion, dropping a bomb. I took cover, still holding onto the money. As the mansion burned, people approached me asking for help.
Amid the chaos, I noticed some people who, like me, seemed unaffected. Some were even engaged in an interview. The scene then turned ominous as it appeared that everyone, including the Chinese owners and the displaced workers, was turning against me.
Faced with a decision, I had to choose whether to maintain my wealth and align with those who seemed to be discussing me or to help those I deemed helpless because they chose not to change their circumstances. I decided to approach the group discussing me. At that moment, I woke up.
Your immediate thoughts upon reading this are invaluable. They offer different perspectives and may even help illuminate aspects of the dream that I may have overlooked. Dreams are complex and multifaceted, and every viewpoint helps in gaining a more holistic understanding.
Remember, being 'fuching selfish' isn't about disregarding others, but about prioritizing your happiness in a way that others can be inspired to do the same. "If you can't see your success, change your vantage pointe."
