An Intriguing Dream

When I was 18 years old, during the summer just before I left home for college, I had a very memorable dream.

A being like an angel appeared.  But she was more like a fairy, really.   She had a wand, and she waved it.  And she said:

“You will have many friends,
And you will have many enemies.
But you will need to know hate
Before you know love.”

The being in the dream disappeared, and then I awoke.  It was morning.

Every now and then that dream resurfaces in my consciousness.  What do you think it means?

    1. Interesting. I never looked at it that way. But that’s certainly a benign interpretation. Perhaps it was a prediction of my impending bipolar condition. Thanks, Ken.

  1. I think it’s an interesting koan. It’s image is classic Tao. Two ends of a continuum. Balance is everything in a transient, ever changing existence. For me, the important thing, is what meaning are you choosing to apply and is there a belief functioning behind the meaning.?
    Thank you for posting this.

    1. Yes, an interesting koan. And kinda like a yin-yang. I’ve never personally applied either of these interpretations, before. They’re somewhat similar in nature. I’ve thought of other interpretations throughout my days, however.
