In Fire and Gold I have been reading quotes on obtaining answers in dreams as a solution to tests.
Meditate thou, perform the ablution and pray to God before sleeping; and whatever the Merciful One may inspire unto thee at the time of revelation in a dream, that will be consistent with obtaining thy wishes. Abdúl’Bahá
So i tried it. Being very concerned with my health and the pain that was what I was focusing on. I prayed after ablution and in the morning the only thing that came to me was to study my chemistry?!?!????
That made absolutely no sense to me! But I did anyway, that night even as tired as I was and miserable.
My brain stilled and I slept so hard that the next day the pain was almost gone.
