    Why do we dream?

    Dreams, when not come true can de-motivate us so, why do we still Dream and not take life as it comes?

    Dreams are the outcome of our unfulfilled wishes and we see them when we are asleep.  It gives us immense satisfaction when we dream of something which we are not able to achieve.  It motivates us to achieve our goals and forces us to think about the right way to do it.  dreams makes u move towards the goal and whence we are not ready to take the things as it comes inour life.  Though elders say that do not dream much and take the things as they come in ur life but it seldom happens.

    Dreams are linked to our imagination.  Imagination to creativity and invention.  Without them we are stagnant.  Never improving, never gaining, never moving forward.

    The mind functions on a 24 hour basis, and when less time is devoted to voluntary actions such as eating, walking, working, playing sports - more is devoted to inner thought, reflection and imagining.

    When you sleep, you're not doing much else except for regulating your heartbeat, etc. You're mind is allowed some undivided me-time to go wild and the sections of your brain that drive creativity and mental visualization - you basically get to put it to a different use than you would in a regular day-to-day action.

    we don't dream that we can't do. Those things that we dream are inside the circle of our capability . But we don't have he courage to go for that. I had a dream in my childhood that I would be the greatest actor ever came on earth. But I couldn't go for my dream. I would give certain reasons but the truth would be I didn't have the courage. Dreams are not only our imagination but they are your source for living. They are the indicators of our will. They are the key of our reason for living.

    Dreams can serve a couple of puroposes. One is to guide us in our lives. It takes practice as know-how to interpret dreams. Dreams also serve as a filter for our minds to clear out certain details from our lives. We don't loose anything, just gets things organized in our minds so to speak.
