I...
I never had the courage, nor scarcely anyone to tell some of my story to.

I'm just seeking my path in life... I have so many questions...

Since conscience memory I have had the same dream...
I'm moving through the forests... an indescribably beautiful voice calls out to me.
"Why are you so afraid? I'm always right here... Don't despair... They are all waiting for you...."
Following these words, I stumble upon a crescent moon engraved on the purest of crystals...
"You are weak. You are a coward. Do you think she would accept you like this?"
I turn to see a majestic Lion, his fur platinum, his mane shines with luminous luster... and those deep abysmal purple eyes, staring at me with the hardened look of a father, disappointed in his son.
I feel myself become his prey, those crystal teeth destroying me.

"I'm right here....I'm right here..."

I wake up,
after years of being a loner....
having the same dream...
No one to talk to about it...
I try this random page on the internet...

Its silly, I know... but it just can't hurt to try to see if its meaningful...
as I feel myself become his prey, the beautiful voice still saying
Logged

The moon high above is my light and constant guide,
on the solemn slender path, the wild thorns bestride....

You've certainly got a flair for prose. That dream was described quite beautifully Smiley No one can interpret a dream as well as the dreamer, but I could offer some suggestions.

 If this were my dream, I would interpret the voice, crystals, and crescent moon as symbols of a generic goddess spirituality, but not a specific goddess or specific path. I would take the lion as a symbol of Christianity. With those in mind, I would say that if it were my dream it would be a subconscious way of expressing anxiety about seeking a spiritual path that deviates from the paths most people follow.

If this explanation doesn't jive with you-and it is perfectly reasonable that it wouldn't-then take each element of the dream and figure out what it means to you. Then just try and put them together.

I agree with Wingedcoyote, it's most important that it means something to you. But if you'd like advice anyway, here it is: This dream, to me, seems like you feel you aren't worthy of something because you aren't brave. But blind bravery is wreckless, and being cautious can be a good thing. If you are afraid of acceptance, in any sense, don't be, because you are yourself and that's all there can be and if someone doesn't like it they can poop off Smiley I mean that in the nicest way possible of course. It could also signify that you're spirit is confused, in that case you should do some soul searching to find out why it would be. I hope you can understand some of this, I tend to be flighty when I have multiple ideas Smiley

Something... whispers in the wind...fills me with feeling
still seeking my meaning, beneath the high moon kneeling...

the love and dispair that is the law of life
this isolation I feel... peirces my heart like a knife,

I'm unsure of my own motivation...
looking for answers like this, I can only hope for your consideration...

From many things I've read about myths and mythic journeys, when a seeker reaches a gate or some kind of veil that he must pass through, there is often a gatekeeper who issues a challeng of some kind to the seeker before he can pass through the gate.

Have you ever given the lion an answer?
