It is more likely that we would dream of a terrorist rather than a zealot, yet they both have the same fanatical belief in and love for one principle. There comes a time in spiritual development where we can, if we are not careful, develop extremist behaviour. The presence of a zealot in dreams can help us focus. Zeal is love in action and in the psychological sense suggests service to others and denial of the self. In dreams it suggests that some of our behaviour may be ?over the top?. Historically, the Zealots were a group who objected to Roman rulership and sought to violently eradicate it. This kind of ?love in action? has relevance in today's world when we come up against fanaticism in all its forms. Dreaming of a zealot suggests that we may need to act more circumspectly to achieve our aims.
