Hello dear Instructors and fellow students.
I usually record my dreams in my dream diary. After waking up, I take brief notes, and before going to bed at night I do retrospection to remember my dreams. Sometimes the symbolism of my dreams are crystal-clear. I can understand them, even intellectually, as if they interpret themselves. But last night I saw a dream and I can't shake the feeling that there's something more to it. I can't really understand all of it. In my dream, I am in a hotel, which always reminds me of fornication because of my past experiences. While wandering aimlessly within that hotel and its dark, gloomy but luxurious atmosphere, I find a name written on something like a little wooden pipe or a pencil. It resembles a common English name but it is not. I shall call it Z for now. I start to wonder who this Z person is and eventually I figure out I am that Z person. Then it gets interesting because knowing my true name and identity, I gain super powers. I defy gravity and can shoot lightning balls to fight "baddies", also my fighting abilities have improved unrealistically. Those "baddies" were the random dark figures I saw in the hotel and I smited them. I think this dream holds a meaning, even if it may sound a bit silly.
I, somehow, have a feeling about names have importance. As far as I know, by God's grace Adam gains the ability to name beasts and other creation. It is a clue. In Bible God is referred as Yod-Hei-Waw-Hei. And growing up Muslim and with an interest in Sufi tradition, I have heard stories about Al-Ismul Azam, which is Lord's hidden Name only revealed to those who devote themselves to Him. Also as far as I know, Kalimatullah (Word of God) is used to refer to Jesus in Qur'an. What is the secret behind names? I am including both profane and genuine names. Can you suggest me some reading material please? Thank you, with love and good wishes..
