Dreams, Illusions or Reality
I have often wondered why we attribute more value to the “awake” state than to the state we experience while dreaming. There are many books written on the dream state. I found many to be too clinical and none seemed to explore the practical application of this meaningful state. I refer to it as meaningful since I figured it must be meaningful as I was experiencing it often each night as I slept. It is with this open mind I began the discovery.
From early on, I was the child that never needed to be reminded about bedtime. I was the young adult who was not interested in late night parties. In highschool I had no interest in staying out late even on senior escapades. I found the dream state to be rich in experience. Soon, many adults, including family, began to observe the dedication and wondered “Do you think her to be depressed? She has always been this way.” I never slept 24 hours straight but I rarely missed 8-10 hours of sleep at night.
As an adult my discovery acquainted me with a world where intuition reigned supreme. The world there was not defined by black or white nor were there protestants, catholics or jews. There was no fashion police, border police or any reason for most “awake” state enterprise. There I found a language rich in symbology. One in which I was able to learn and there was a practical application to it all. In the dream state I found I could ask and be answered. Now I had a true resource as much of what I discovered was useful in both the “awake” and dream state.
So, now, Dear Readers
I ask you
Are Dreams Illusions or are they Reality
What is your experience?
