She peeked out the window. She couldn't believe that in the distance there stood a dinosaur and a tiger…
Her first thought was, “I hope they don’t come here…”
Within seconds, the tiger had pushed open her bedroom door and leaped across the room.
She had no idea how she dodged the leap, scooted underneath, ran out and headed upstairs. Her heart was racing, the adrenaline was boiling, and fear was at a high octane.
She went up into her parents room and screamed, “There’s a tiger in my bedroom!”
Her parents looked at her as if she was crazy, they were in total dismay. She was shivering and shouting out, “There’s a tiger in the house!” Yet, her parents kept reassuring her, she must be having a bad dream.
But she responded, “No way, it’s real, come look!”
She creeped down the hall to the banister, and when she reached the top of the stairs, the most beautiful Indian couple greeted her.
Their faces were like old buddhas: warm, wise, aged, yet youthful to the eye. She asked, “Oh my god, what should I feed the tiger?” They asked if she had any meat in her kitchen, she remembered she had some roast beef deli meat she had yet to open. But that couldn’t be nearly enough to feed a tiger.
The couple carefully and in unison said, “feed it fruit.” The older gentleman continued to explain that fruit helps nourish and ease a tiger’s digestive system.
She thought that was strange as she had recently been having stomach problems herself…
As she approached the bedroom, she saw the tiger walking off into the distance.
When we begin to digest what we need to feed ourselves, our subconscious awakens through to show us what we truly need to see.
What do you need to feed your spirit, your thoughts, and your mind? Are you feeding it nourishment, kindness, compassion, and love? Or are you feeding it rage, anger, upset, and denial?
Sometimes it takes a dream to wake us up to see what we really need.
