  1. I had this dream that was so profound many years ago. I was with a women and we were running for safety. She was guiding me. I followed her to a cave, I would be safe here, she stayed in the cave with me a little while. I asked her how I would find my way back, you must remember ! You will know it when you find it. Remember ! I trusted her that I would remember to find my way back. Soon I settled in, then things got cramped , and I knew that I must now leave the safety of the cave and find my way back. The cave was squeezed me, finally I made my way out into the light. It took me years to find what I was to remember, but I did! He caves I saw were in Isreal. On top of Mt. Carmel, the Baha’i Faith. Allah’u’Abha !
