Walking on Water or Correlation of Dreams and Reality
Many are familiar with the well-known tale of Jesus walking on water to rescue and support his followers, a prominent miracle recounted in the New Testament. The incident symbolizes a canonical principle: the triumph of invisible realities of faith over the visible threats of the world, irrespective of their form. It imparts a lesson on self-belief, encouraging the pursuit of seemingly impossible or extraordinary challenges. The phrase "walking on water" has become an idiom, describing an astonishing achievement in the face of overwhelming odds.
Examining the story from a different perspective, a logical viewpoint suggests anyone can walk on water as long as it is in the form of ice. While opinions on the biblical account may vary, dreams featuring individuals walking on water are common. However, interpreting such dreams reveals diverse meanings.
Dreams of walking on water often signify the need for a deeper understanding of one's emotions. They may indicate past emotional distress, internal fears, or uncertainties. The dream might also symbolize anxiety about failure or destruction. Water in dreams can be both a friend and a foe, generating restlessness for the dreamer. It symbolizes the dreamer's inability to control certain aspects of life.
Despite the potentially negative interpretations, there are positive aspects as well. Moving on water without external support is considered a miraculous feat, suggesting that something extraordinary may be on the horizon, where the impossible becomes possible.
The accompanying artwork depicts a gloomy interpretation of such dreams. A majestic sculpture by Lorenzo Bernini, representing an angel, is torn apart by a formidable underwater creature. The Baroque style contrasts sharply with the raw power of nature. The angel's grace, symbolized by the earth globe in its hands, is threatened, ready to fall into the abyss of water. The malicious eye of an octopus emerges, seeking to dominate the fragile emotional balance. The serene scene is disrupted by a single drop of water, creating ripples—an allegory for life events where a seemingly insignificant incident can disrupt the delicate equilibrium of one's soul.
