I had a dream (in 2006, but before December).
I was with Meher Baba.
He was standing behind a relatively large display case, made of glass, like what you would use to display jewelry or antique collectables, or something. He could reach into it from behind the case, where he stood. I could also reach into it from my side, in front. The top and sides were glass. Inside the case were nothing but photos of Baba.
I was looking at all these amazing photos, they were so nicely done, and I believe laminated for protection. Lovely. Baba looked so proud and happy to be manning this case. He indicated that I can have whichever photo I want. I thought — wow, here I am and Baba will allow me to have any photo… Then I thought — but Baba is here… so I said, “Baba, I love all these photos, but I would like you to choose the photo for me.” And then I added this after, “But Baba, I would like the photo to represent CHANGE.”
Baba looked surprised, and then got a mischievous look, and instead of reaching into the case, he bent down low, and came up from behind the case with a beautiful blue glass windchime, and handed it over the top of the case to me as a gift. He was so pleased with his surprise gift, and I was stunned and so happy. I woke up. Lilly heard this dream from me, and for Christmas found a beautiful blue windchime and gave it to me as a gift. Now I have one. I am still processing this.
Xia: Could there be a better symbol of change than a windchime?
Laurent: I photographed the wind-chime and the Star of David I attached to the bottom of it, for my book Celebrating Divine Presence. That photo is above.
