The Drama of Dreams

People say that the major purpose of dreams is to resolve unfinished thoughts left over from the day before. And they also say that the dream world is something that is connected to illusions and delusions of the mind in which dream is a fabrication of one’s mental exercise and activity. When one dreams, one is exercising one’s mental activity which is related to what one feels, thinks, imagines and observes in regular day activity, and it is basically attached to the creation of one’s own mental faculty than the outside world.

They also say that it is not happiness and joy that are the most commonly experienced emotions during dreaming, it is fear and anxiety. Remember, those negative dreams one had at some point were created by one’s mind. The insecurities one ignores in one’s waking life are often encoded in one’s dreams. And then they make one feel to have them when one’s body is passive and the other reality is awake.

Basically, there are two kinds of dreams; the first one is a fabrication of one’s mental activity as mentioned on the above in which it is the continuation and extension of such given practice and exercise; the second one is a reality that comes outside one’s mental activity and experience whose author is still unknown to date due to the nature and character of occurrences and events that do happen into this objective plane of existence in which what one sees in one’s dream world is found translated into the objective world as true and real.

For instance, most people experience the dream world, especially, with interaction and communication of opposite sexes, which is common in churches and other religious people, a man seeing woman, getting married in dream world and such dream world is translated into objective world because of such dream as many pastors are heard and they claim to marry woman, they use dream s means of justifying their given connection they have with women they want to get married.

However, such practice is coming corrupt and is found fake and wrong for many reasons. People are not even attracted to dream world since they see other factors and causes as to the connection they have with other people due to tricky and other corrupt practices which people find in many places and also from past experiences of other people, as people got into marriage with dreams, and later on, they get divorce at some point of time in their given life and there is no such difference that makes for people to get connected as they see other people in dream or not since reality speaks louder than any other aspect of such life.

This does not mean that what people experience and practice in dream world are all fake and wrong. There are true occurrences in dream world that goes in conformity with objective world occurrences which are real and true. Yes, there are. But, such true and correct practice and experience of life becomes and turns out to be corrupt and fake as many other people enter such city, they make it game and play of the foolish since they do not have adequate grasp and understanding on the correlation and connection that exist between the dream world and objective world as well.

People say a place where angels are afraid to step upon, but the foolish gamble on it. Everything and anything in this word needs perspective and mindset otherwise everything and anything is vain and fake. Anything and everything has meaning based on where people are and they belong otherwise anything that has certain meaning and perspective for one segment of people is dull and ignorance to the other since people do deliver meaning and understanding toward any given matter based on their given standards that exist in the dictionary of their given life, if any.

For centuries people have pondered the meaning of dreams. Early civilizations thought of dreams as a medium between our earthly world and that of the gods. In fact, the Greeks and Romans were convinced that dreams had certain prophetic powers. While there has always been a great interest in the interpretation of human dreams, it wasn’t until the end of the nineteenth century that Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung put forth some of the most widely-known modern theories of dreaming.

Six separate surveys of very different populations showed that people tend to believe that their dreams reveal hidden truths about themselves and the world. People tend to think that dreams reveal hidden emotions and beliefs and they often find them to be more meaningful than thoughts they might have when they are awake. It is almost like having an internal therapist, because you associate [through dreams] to previous similar feelings, and you work through the emotion related to it so that it is reduced by morning.” Researchers now believe that dreams help us process emotions, consolidate memories, and more.

Due to its mysterious nature and character and its much unknowable aspect, dream has caused itself to scientific investigation—the scientific study of dreams—oneirology. Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep.

Dreams are great things to have. They are precious gifts of nature and life. They are something that people can get up to and hope for. People may dismiss that dreams are coincidences, but there are also very accurate and improbable that people cannot help to marvel. True dreams cannot be illusions and delusions of the mind, but they are messages and thoughts sent from the unknown to help and protect us. As this world has two natures, the seen and the unseen, the dream world helps to connect people to the unseen world for good purpose.

One of the manifestations of health reality and mind is the existence of dream in one’s given mental faculty as they say not one person who does not dream, except those who have psychological disorders. Dreams sometimes leave distressed for a day and sometimes one has no idea what one dreamt about. One can really live a whole beautiful life in a dream that one may never be able to achieve in reality. Wonder how life would be without dreams? No point. Because there cannot be any life without dreams and that is a fact.
