It's a funny title with a funny dream which sounds like a really funny story that would not happen from my personal point of view.
I awoke in what seemed like Jerusalem there were people on the streets in prayer and business was going as usual. While passing by a cafe that had a
news channel on there was something regarding an economical devastation and multi national aid disaster relief being sent to the U.S. I did not pay
too much attention although now I think I should have paid great attention to the small details.
As I kept walking through the narrow streets I came upon a hill and sat down to enjoy the view, beside me came an old man with a cane dressed in what
almost looked like a robe. He said to me "They live their life always wondering if there is something more, they devote hours and years seeking for
something that is right in front of their noses". I chuckled lightly and said "Well that's religion for you once it was a straight forward map of
directions, now it's just an infinite maze and people don't know what is up and where is down".
The old man laughed ever so lightly and then asked me a strange question he asked "Would you ever sacrifice yourself for them?", I looked at him
with a blank face thinking to myself "Why would I ever do such a silly thing?". So I then said "Why would I do that? Are they not all doomed?
Supporting wars, oppression, suffering and hate, most of them don't even pay any attention and instead they choose to ignore the issues of the
world", he looked at me and placed his hand on my shoulder and said "Maybe they need someone to show them the way". I started to shake my head and
began to laugh then I said "Last time someone showed them the way they crucified him, not to mention the many others that were murdered and then they
got the message wrong and established churches filled with lies". After I stopped laughing I looked at him seriously and said "I'm not interested
in being the teacher or the savior it's not my job and I would not sacrifice myself for humanity, why would I sacrifice myself for someone who kills
one another for paper,plastic, cotton and ink?".
That is when the old man chuckled and smiled and said to me "Don't be so quick to judge yourself and them, I believe you are more noble than you say
and time can change all things". That's when I got up dusted my pants off and said "Thank you for stopping by and I'd rather not be the
sacrificial lamb that dies for humanity" he then stood up shook my hand and while smiling said "You never know what time will bring".
I then woke up in my bed looking outside my window staring at the sun shining through the leaves and branches of the tree outside.
I wonder who this old man was?
Am I really more noble than I think I am?
Would I sacrifice myself for humanity if given the opportunity?
Why would I be hinted at sacrificing myself for humanity?
What exactly will time bring?
Why would I be suggested to show someone the way? I'm not a teacher hell I'd be really bad at the job
In all seriousness this old man gave me a massive headache trying to figure this out
Better yet - Why am I writing this on here
Am I hoping someone else will help connect the dots or reveal who this old man is
Yet, at the same time I think that this was just a wild imagination based situation my mind cooked up
