Sairam to all STKCians. While with a rare and wonderful opportunity of working with STKC, I was already ennobled, Swami again added on to it by Gracing me with a beautiful dream.
August 19, 2015 (Morning).
My mother, Sneha (sister) and I were having a healthy argument about something. We were standing near a window in my mother's room. I was looking up at the clear blue skies through the window when I noticed a few tiny horizontal S-shaped white clouds (like the tilde symbol) that were fast approaching from the left and the right sides, to meet at the center (within my view) only to form thick clouds all over. This was followed by a crash of thunder. However, it was not our usual loud rumbling or crashing noise that we hear during a normal thunder roll. It had a certain kind of vibration and shudder in the sound. No vibration could be felt though, it was only in the sound.
Ordinarily, such kind of an ear-splitting and clamorous thunder would scare anyone. However, to my amazement, not even for a second did any of us get scared or worried. In fact, our very first and immediate reaction was looking at each other, and without uttering a word we just passed each other a confident smile that in itself said, "Yes, we know exactly what this is about." The day we anticipated and awaited the most was finally here. It was finally happening! The entire gamut of feelings were running through us; feeling of bliss, joy, ecstasy, euphoria, relief, etc.
However, after a little while I did break that flow, closed my eyes and prayed innocently to Swami that "If these thunders do cause some things falling apart here and there, please don't let anything happen to Mummy and Papa, okay?". Then I immediately rebuked myself for worrying even for a second, as any kind of worry or doubt would stand as a hindrance in my firm faith on Swami. So I decided to bow down to whatever He willed because you can either worry, or you can trust Swami; you just can't do both!
Meanwhile, my father was in the kitchen making us our evening tea like always. I ask my mother "You think dad would have understood? Shall I go and tell him?" to which she smiled and replied, "I am sure he knows too, but go and tell him anyway." As I went to him and was about to say it, I noticed his face; he had two tears rolling down his cheeks. He was still carrying on with his work with a very relieving and calm look, like someone had just reassured him that everything was finally going to be okay. I asked him, "So you know what is happening right?" and he said, "Yes, I think I do. I have never heard such kind of a thunder before. This is something else."
I came back near that window in my mother's room and looked up at the thick clouds again. Then I noticed some shoe-prints being formed; like someone was walking straight on the clouds. I just knew it was Swami. And this part is a little complex to explain, but as the prints formed, I could clearly see the blue sky hidden behind the thick clouds, through the shape of those prints. I also remember seeing many colors in the sky after those prints were formed. But that part, I only vaguely remember.
Next, I found myself on the top floor of a mall where there were these alien dolls in a stall that was completely crowded by people who were so excited to get them. The idea I got from this was that people were assuming these unusual thunders to be alien-related. I found this funny and at the same time I was a little disappointed, wondering that people would know what those really were.
I then saw our young-looking Swami walking from behind that stall, His face lit up with glee. He passed me by and I was happy and relieved, thinking to myself: "Oh Thank God You're here, Swami!" I felt that now the misconception that people might have (that this was extraterrestrial) would be cleared and they would know that this was actually Swami's return and the commencement of the Golden Age.
Dream ended there.
It's time that we get ready to fasten our seat belts as this ride to the Golden Age may or may not have a few bumps in the start, but it is certainly going to be the most memorable, ecstatic and rapturous ride all along, with the accompaniment of the Almighty - our beloved Swami.
And that time, I feel, is fast approaching!
Jay Sai Ram!
