Was your gorilla a quiet one, relaxing with his family group, tending to her young? Gorillas are very peaceful animals, enjoy being together, enjoy raising the young in that group. It could be that your dream is showing you the value of a family and reminding you to pay more attention to your own, to cherish it.
On the other hand, was your gorilla a fierce one, beating its chest and being strong? Gorillas are AMAZINGLY powerful creatures that can defend their young or their territory quite fiercely. This is the other side of a strong family - the keeping away of danger. Maybe the dream is warning you that something threatens your family, and that action needs to be taken to get the situation under control.
Finally, one of the most powerful symbols in modern times concerning the gorilla is King Kong. He was ripped from his island home and dragged to a strange, scary world. He was then slain in his confusion of trying to escape. This could say that you feel separated from your own home and family, from what you hold dear. You feel like life is causing trouble for you. It might be time to find a way to re-center yourself, to find some quiet time for yourself and maybe to take a break if you can. Make a small corner of your world a 'safe place' where you do feel at home.
