It was such a lovely dream yesterday that it left me feeling good all day and I went to sleep hoping for another. No, it didn’t come but I did sleep well all night; woke only to visit the WC three times. That dream started me thinking – was it only a dream or was it a vision. How did the author of Revelations know he was seeing a vision of heaven and the last days? How did Swedenborg know he was seeing the real heaven? My dream was very real to me and I felt I was seeing the real Patricia and the real heaven. That KISS was more than just feeling; it was so strong and affected my whole being – body, mind and soul. So far it is still affecting me and I am happier than I have been since Patricia departed – somehow I feel not as alone or sad. I am sure Patriicia and I are going to join again in heaven if we haven’t already in that dream – I still feel linked to her. Okay it was a vision and it helps me to believe it was as real as anything the author of Revelations or that Swedenborg saw. I repeat Anchoress and mystic Julian of Norwich’s words on why we have such visions:
““What, do you wish to know your Lord’s meaning in this thing? Know it well, love was his meaning. Who reveals it to you?
What did he reveal to you?
Why does he reveal it to you?
Remain in this and you will know more of the same.
Rest assured. All will be well. All manner of things shall be well.”
Very wise words which I shall take to heart. All really will be well with Pat and I. The Lord is my shepherd, he leads me into the place Pat is preparing for us in Heaven and we will dwell in the House of the Lord forever. Love is stronger than Death!
