Alex has contributed greatly to our group and made forever a home in our hearts. We wish him always the best. Here he tells us of his dream. I shall add that the Magi were experts in the interpretation of dreams and the Zoroastrian lore has a rich tradition concerning dream interpretation, http://atlanteangardens.blogspot.com/2014/07/history-of-medes-magi-and-enchanters-of.html
I had a dream in which I felt a deep wish of my heart that the persian people turn their hearts and minds back to their old religion of Zoroastrianism. (The teachings of Zarathustra). During this dream I touched a couple of persians with my fingers and they started to study Zoroastrianism. I had this dream in similar forms a couple of times in the last 4 years.
Commentary 1: I have studied the ancient persian religion of Zoroastrianism for two years and came in contact with a couple of practising Zoroastrians from around the world. They have made a noble impression on me as well as their religion. I even thought for a while of becoming a Zoroastrian myself. However, I realized during my further study of religion, that the Indian religions probably come closer to the truth. Yet, still I am on cordial terms with the Zoroastrians – similar to my friendship with the catholic Austrian nobility. I hope that the persian people with their great ancient culture and tradition, will re-discover their brilliant religion of Zoroastrianism. It will turn out well for them and they shall be a light for many nations again.
Commentary 2: “Not all that have fallen are vanquished; not all that is over is past a king may yet be without crown, but deep roots are not reached by the frost and towers that are strong will fall down From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king” —J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
“The Lord of the Rings, however, takes up the Zoroastrian idea and is dominated by the equivalent of Angra Mainyu, a mighty supernatural being who is supernaturally malevolent and exerts all of his vast powers to inflict degradation and suffering on our race and its allies; and that is one of the factors that make the book a story of high emprise and heroism that often rises to the level of epic poetry, and assure it of a place among the great literature of our race.” (Revilo P. Oliver – The Origins of Christianity)
