Kiddie Pools …
I had a dream I want to share.
In my dream I was remembering playing in a small pool. Something like a plastic kiddie pool. I was remembering what fun it was to play in the pool and wanted to do it again.
I found the pool (again, it was much like a plastic kiddie pool) and tried to put it in the water to set it up to play in it. I did not fill it with a hose, but rather attempted to push it down in this body of water, to fill it that way – letting some water seep over the top. I thought I had succeeded and went to get in it with a friend and play – but much to my frustration it sunk down from our weight and the water continued to pour in over the top until it sank.
I kept trying to pull it up and get it situated so we could play in it and have fun, like I did when I had played in it before, but never could get it set up right – it just kept sinking under water. Then all of a sudden in the dream I was able to see the body of water I was trying to force this little pool to float in, it was a HUGE POOL.
Deep, wide, clear, beautiful, and HUGE. It dawned on me that I had the entire pool to play in and had it all along. I had no need to be fighting with this tiny plastic kiddie pool. I had a huge pool right there ready, waiting, available to me. … and apparently it had always been there. Ironically, it was the very thing I had been fighting with all along, because of it’s depth the kiddie pool would keep sinking.
I remember feeling awestruck at the size of the pool, and a bit scared at the thought of playing in something so huge. But I also remember realizing that if I wanted to play, I was going to have to play in the huge pool, because I was sure not going to get this kiddie pool to float in it with the weight of myself and my friend.
Then I woke up.
