Many many years ago I had a dream that I was involved in a very important battle in the Higher Worlds.
Now, I should mention that I’m not a fighter, I’m not a warrior like some people are on the higher worlds. I’m more of a scientist. I’m not good at waging battles against evil forces, it’s not my forte, it’s not what I like to do. But I do love to help people, to help groups and teams as long as it is an actual way that I really can help – with skills I actually have, so it’s a real help, and not a drain of resources and time for everybody involved. I like to know my limits, and stay away from “helping” with things I am not good at doing.
I realized I was standing by the sidelines, holding my staff-weapon of electrical killing power, which felt like a large metal rifle and looked more like a cross between a staff and a bazooka; it was mostly cylindrical and skinnier than any bazooka, but the front-end flared out a little bit like a blunderbuss but not that much. I was a little unsure what to do, I have never really used one of these before that I could recall.
Looking in front of me I saw an amazing sight: a great leader of ours, shining with white light, was surrounded by a few evil warriors in a circle; like 5 or 6 of them. They in turn were surrounded by a larger number of good guys, powerful warriors; maybe 10 or 12. They, in turn, were surrounded by a large number of bad guys forming a ring of their own; all told, I think I saw about 8 to 10 rings of alternating good guys/bad guys, forming this large circle of beings in front of me. Everyone was facing inwards, towards the center, with their weapons aimed.
My Team Goes Into Action
The outer ring at the moment was made up of bad guys. They were about 15-20 feet in front of us. Now it was our turn! We got the signal to advance quickly and take our places! Myself and a huge number of good guys like me rushed forward, aiming our weapons at the evil forces in front of us! We formed the outermost ring, trying to protect our leader! I had never been involved in this kind of battle before, never seen anything like it; I felt a bit uneasy about the whole thing.
The sense that everyone around me had was: this was probably the winning move, because look at how many good guys we brought to the outer ring, over a hundred people, at least; this is as big as the battles usually get.
Then, just as suddenly as we were called to duty and took our places forming the big outer ring, a much larger array of evil bad-guys surrounded us, standing right behind us! Now I was trapped, surrounded with bad guys in front of me and behind me! I really didn’t like this feeling now. If I was part of the outer ring so that we could win, I was OK with that; but this new ring of bad guys was a surprise move! Nobody in our ring expected it! I felt like I was in serious danger.
I did not know what to do. I could feel a weapon being pointed at my back from inches away by the bad guy standing behind me. It felt awful. I turned around briefly and aimed my weapon at the guy behind me, because I’d rather shoot him first, rather than him shooting me! But the instant I turned most of the way around, my buddy next to me grabbed my shoulder and stopped me. He said, “no, stay facing forward,” and I had to admit that nobody else was doing this except me, so it must be the wrong thing to do; I turned facing forward again, not shooting anybody, just like everyone else in the room. The tension was immense.
The bad guys had surprised us with an extra ring of evil warriors, we never expected it. We were totally surrounded.
Surprising the Surprise
Then, just as suddenly, A whole new wave of good forces appeared out of nowhere! They had been hiding from sight. A vast array of white warriors, each with their weapons, each highly trained, appeared behind the evil ones that were standing behind me – these new white warriors formed a circle around all of them. Now the outermost ring was completely made of white warriors! We surprised the surprise attack! We outnumbered the bad guys after all!!
The instant this outer ring of good guys formed, the battle was over and a huge cheer went up into the sky and filled all hearts to incredible heights of joy and ecstasy! Good warriors threw their arms into the air and cheered loudly, and the bad guys all slumped their shoulders and threw their weapons on the ground. We won!!!
Everyone was moving around chaotically now, like at the end of a high-school graduation ceremony. My heart was filled with a super-high joy, but I felt scared still, there were so many bad guys walking around this place. I kept my weapon leveled in case I needed it to protect myself or others, but nobody else was doing the same. Nobody fired a single shot at anybody. The good guys won this battle, the bad guys lost even though they thought their surprise attack would win.
What I Realized
What I realized from this was that the top-level good guy warriors knew a surprise attack was coming, and needed to recruit more good warriors than they had to overpower the bad guys or they would lose the battle. I was recruited, even though I had little to no battle experience – I could wear the clothing and hold the weapon, and if all went well, I would not have to use the weapon or know any tactics like the trained warriors knew. Thank goodness it went according to plan, and I’m not surprised they didn’t share the final plan with me.
They had to use all of us “newbie” warriors on the “fake outermost ring”. Because it wouldn’t be the true outermost ring, that was going to be made up of the real highly-trained white warriors. Those guys had to hold back and not form our ring, let us form the ring in their place, so they could form the REAL outer ring instead.
I felt good that forces greater than me had planned this thing out really well. I wasn’t in a whole lot of danger after all; I did the right thing and it worked out, thank goodness. I was proud of our side to conquer the bad guys in so large a battle.
After waking up from this, I realized this ring of different types and colors of warriors, alternating good and bad, reminded me of something I’ve seen; as a child my family had a jigsaw puzzle of a buddhist painting of rings of different people in concentric circles; waterfalls; houses; many different layers of things. I wish I still had that jigsaw puzzle, I’d love to look at it now, but my parents apparently got rid of it a long time ago. I think that buddhist artist from the past probably experienced battles like this, and painted them the way he saw them – the way I just experienced it myself. It’s neat to see when art on the physical plane is representative of something on the higher worlds. You just never know when something in the physical world will surprisingly match something abstract you’ve experienced on the higher planes. I never connected with that painting/jigsaw puzzle before; but suddenly I wish I could see it again, and see if I could see things going on in it that I never noticed before.
I could tell from the height of joy in our hearts after the battle ended that this was a truly major battle that we had just won, by sheer number of warriors. It was a good day.
