That’s amazing Tia! because I had a similar dream about 6 or 7 years ago (I still remember it though). The dream was about a baby goat too! Here it is:
Me and other people (I didn’t know any of them) found ourselves in a huge marble hall, it was all white, no doors, no windows, no furniture, nothing;
We were looking around surprised, trying to find out what it all meant. Suddenly the water started flowing in through tiny holes in the walls. There were so many of them that the echo produced by water jets sounded like the waterfall's roar! We could hardly hear each other. The hall was really huge but despite this the water came up to our ankles incredibly soon.
Someone said: we gonna die here! There’s no way out!
And then we heard the voice: There is a way out! You just have to find it! If you don’t you all will drown in half and hour. The voice was very soft and yet we could perfectly hear it because the roar did not seem to deafen it at all.
Suddenly we all saw an old man; he was very old and looked like a wizard or so. Actually it wasn’t a real man but a ghost because we could see walls and floor through him. As soon as he uttered these words, he dispersed.
We were running around the hall like crazy trying to find that secret button that will stop the water flowing in. The water was running really fast when suddenly someone noticed a black baby goat chained to the floor.
Some rushed to save it when others shouted: Are you crazy? Why waste precious time and save it? All of us will die here! Use the time we still have to try and find the way out!
Then someone came out and said: If we are to die here, then it is the way it should be and we will BUT we will die all together! I cannot watch this poor little baby goat die! Can you?!
We rushed to the baby goat and pulled out the chain from the floor, setting the poor thing free. As soon as we did, the whole wall fell off ……and that was the way out! the secret mechanism!
Astounded, we came out and saw that we were on a beautiful island, the ocean was immense and calm and the sky was so clear ..
It all felt like a miracle… we were saved!
I think our dreams are very similar and they represent the eternal battle between profit motives and unselfishness = the good and the bad. (in your dream: ‘goat is useless it cant produce milk’, in mine: ‘why save it if it does not help us’)
I could never understand why a baby goat? Is it because in astrology the Goat is the symbol of Capricorn which is ruled by Saturn, the planet of Karma?
Does this mean that a true compassion and care will set us free from our Karma? Is this the way out from pain, spiritual death and suffering?
I think it is.
What do you think?
Ra, I'd like to know your opinion too
P.S. Is there something that made you feel good about the choice you had made, Tia?
