Recently, I've informed my mother of my conversion to Buddhism. She wouldn't stop over reacting, no matter how many times I told her that it's not a cult-of-rejects who have to get their testicles removed (She actually thought that). I tried to inform her that it was another path towards the same, universal love that she believes in as God / Jesus.

She was convinced that I was turning my back on Catholicism, and wouldn't listen when I told her that I was bringing myself closer to God.

Anyways, here's my dream:

During this dream, my mother was crying, both due to that she loved me, and that she could not accept that Jesus did not completely take her side. That's just my stance, though. I remember experiencing a sudden feeling of anticipation, and then I was in deep space, surrounded by nebulae and stars. I looked over to my right, as if peering across a corner, and here comes Jesus. His height was greater than mine, and he wore a bright white robe. He had a look of understanding and acceptance on his face, however, if anyone else had a similar face, it would have come off as stern. He said no words, he simply wrapped his arms around me, and we embraced. I had never experienced greater comfort in my life than I did then. Many people speak of his eyes, and they should. His eyes were indescribable; they'd appear a dark blue, but if you looked closely, they were a light brown. If you payed further attention, they were medium green. I don't know how to describe the experience other than amazing.


Now, many times I'd told my mother that Jesus encouraged people to choose what they believe, even if it's nothing at all. She is still convinced that he wanted everyone to follow him.

Words out of her mouth: "Buddha was a man, honey."

Me: "So was Jesus."

I'm (sarcastically) waiting for her to come back with "Well Jesus was in better shape." (This is actually quite likely for her to do).

Anyways, please respond if you want, it would make me happy. grin

Tough one. When I share my spirituality with my parents (or anyone for that matter), I do my best to say things they can relate with (they are christian), maybe concepts that relate with what Jesus says in the gospels. But I've learned it's best not to explain it through philosophical or other religious beliefs like Buddhism... it will automatically raise their "Christian Shield" and then it's impossible for them to listen to what I'm saying objectively. I've learned over the years how to talk to them about certain things without them having to raise the shield. And I've also learned that some things aren't worth talking about at all right now.

Wonderful experience. Would be interesting to hear about your mother's reaction (and interpretation) to this dream. Have you told her about this dream yet, will you do so or not?

What a wonderful dream.
If it were me (I was fortunate in that both my parents were very open minded about spirituality) what I would say is that Jesus is happy for you because you are following your truth, and that's what he was about.
But it's what I believe, so it may not apply.
