Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

So a couple of nights ago I had a dream about 'Abdu'l-Baha. For folks who are not familiar with who He is, He was appointed by Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith as the Head of the Baha'i community after Baha'u'llah's passing, the Center of His Covenant with His followers and the Interpreter of His Words. 'Abdu'l-Baha is also viewed by Baha'is as the perfect Exemplar of the Baha'i Teachings. So in this dream He appeared very radiant and happy and went swiftly up a flight of stairs. I followed Him into a room where he was sitting in a chair. I approached Him and He opened His hands and I placed my hands in His. His hands were very warm and rough with age and much suffering. I knelt down and placed my forehead on His hands and started to cry and cry. Neither of us said a word to each other. I woke up and felt a great deal of joy and happiness. I have no idea what the meaning of this dream was but have enjoyed sharing it with people who are interested in these things. Comments on what you think it meant are welcome.
