I was walking by the sea with a balloon tied to my hand, it was floating high above my head. After a while I got hungry so I went to a restaurant, the ballon was over me the whole time, while I ate. At another table there was a family with children. The kids had these toy guns that shot small plastic balls and they popped my ballon with them. I got up and was about to go to their table when a waiter ran up to me, but I told him that I would pay for my food and the families. Then I went back to my table. But in the end it was the family with the kids who paid for my dinner, so I could go back and buy another ballon. 

So what did we learn from this story?
a) don't kill balloons
b) go to the sea if you want a free meal
c) somehing else! (write it in the comments)

Everything wrapped up nicely like a well thought out story or episode.

Well that's what I thought xD

The Sea is time, the Beach is Life.  The sea bring trash to the beach, and then, the sea washes the beach clean. Time Cleans Trash from our Life.
The Balloon is a issue or a problem, floating above your head.
The Restaurant is a gathering place of family and friends. A place to meet and discuss.
The Children have answers in the form of a Gun.  The Gun is resolve.

You were walking in Life, cleaning your Beach, with your problem in your hand, you arrive at a restaurant to discuss your problem, because your are hungry for a answer.
The Children destroy your problem, and it falls (the balloon)  to the ground to be washed away by time. You want to say thank you, and pay for dinner.
You are told, "your problem was our problem too. Thank you for bringing this problem to discussion."  " Can we buy you dinner?"   :party:

I feel like you tried to cooperate with a recent problem, the balloon representing your pride and joy, whatever it was.  Then someone shot it down, someone who was "small" to you in the first place, but they had a lot of power, hence the gun.  Then a third party, but more on the "kids" side, fixed things up.  And I guess the sea could represent unknowing, but maybe you like that.  It depends on how you felt.  Well, that's my two cents.

This could be a sign. Lots of people have these dreams where it seems so real. It could mean anything really.

do not get attached to matter/material stuff, they tie you and prevent you to appreciate the real thing: people. as you let go of material stuff, you open yourself for something more precious...

You will be holding on to something that is really high, it may be high expectations, dreams or goals. You walked by the sea, so I think this meant something close to the overcome of an impossible challenge, or even prooving everyone else was wrong about what you or what you were trying to do, or it could even mean something like you are light and relaxed like a newly born spirit.

You got hungry, this means your needs, in general. Physical ones too. Then you went to pay to kill your hunger, to satisfy your needs, and there was a family figure which called your atention. There, something about your family or social structure may call your attention and even bring you nostalgia. Your dreams and expectations could be shocked up, but then you acted with discipline and honor, this made you to satisfy all your needs for free.

I think that's it XD

is that a real dream or just a story,

by the way, the lesson might be, not to get angry if you lose something, it might be back to you later or even nicer than what u lose,



best wishes :rose:

How about "giving children plastic guns means that you're liable to to pay for others' dinner when you go out to restaurants."

While I can get why the families paid for your dinner, I don't quite understand why you'd have wanted to pay for the families who shot your balloon as well...

c) Karma follows you to your dreams.

The kids popped the baloon, they and their family had to pay for your meal.
You offered to pay for their meal despite the kids having popped your balloon, you got the free meal instead. :la:
