In a recent dream, I watched America continuing to decline and the West Coast running out of water. I visualized a pipeline quickly being constructed to supply that area with water from the Great Lakes. Through pictures that danced in my head, I witnessed thousands protesting this, even as food supplies continued to decline and prices rose to where only few could afford to purchase them. The nightly news showed anglers, boating enthusiasts and commercial fishers, along with environmentalists, all protesting. Many among them came across as not only angry but concerned over the cost of food, which had risen far beyond man’s reach.
While it all appeared to me in a dream, I knew that the possibility of this happening was real.
As my dream came to an end, I heard voices in unison singing, “God Bless America,” not realizing that while he had blessed us in the past, he has since removed his hand of favor from upon us. All as a result, I may add, to our having allowed his name being removed from anything once associated with him. I witnessed some praying for the mountains to bury them, due to the fears of what we suddenly were experiencing. By the time it was all over, my vision had turned into an absolute nightmare as all mankind began to fight for survival.
In leaving my residence later that morning and sharing with others the dream I had experienced, I was asked if I was feeling all right.
“I feel fine,” I replied. It’s just that a good share among us seem to be on Prozac and unable to face the troubles this world of ours soon will be experiencing.
