Dreams of our life
Our dreams could be our future
We like dreaming away
Welcome to our article 3 (53)), Dreams of our lives
Dear readers, in our previous article we have talked about gardening in Brisbane, in this article we are going to talk about, dreams of our lives, because most of us I believe are dreamers. You see, we all dream our dreams during our lives, of course our dreams can be at least of two different types: the dreams that we dream at night, which are our real dreams, and those dreams that we dream during the day, which are those things that we wish we could have, and this could label us as dreamers.
In this article, we are going to write about those dreams that we dream during the day, which are our day dreams, and therefore our desires of what we would like to do. So, the dreams that we are dreaming today, they may well be what we can create tomorrow. You see, today I am dreaming another day-dream and that is almost funny to say here, because I am dreaming of writing this article about dreams of our lives, just to write something in Hub Pages.
Now, because in our lives most times we seem to be dreaming away, therefore, dreams of our life I have called this hub, but that was not my first choice, in fact I wound have called it dreaming away, because this is what we usually do during our lives. Yes, we dream what we would like to be, or what we would like to do; so, our dreams are not just the dreams that we dream at night, they could also be our thoughts and our wishes, that perhaps we might be able to have one day in real life, if we are lucky; or we might not be able to have them in real life, because we are dreaming an impossible dream, but that is the way we are, we always dream a dream that is bigger than us, so to speak.
I must say that, we all dream these sorts of dreams, but some people would like to explain our dreaming life, they will go to the extreme to explain our dreams and dreaming, so, some of people say, that life could even be only a dream, a dream that we are dreaming and nothing else; so, one day we could wake up and find out that what we have been dreaming does not even exist; that would be really shocking, if something like that really happens. But I hope we are real, and really exist.
As for myself I believe that I really exist and I am alive and well, and at this moment I am writing an article in Hub Page, I am trying to write this article the best way I can, even though it seems a bit strange sometimes, because dreams are usually strange, but at the same time I am writing serious issues as well, in the hope of gaining attention from my readers; so, I am going to tell you what I would like to do next; I would like to tell you some dreams that I have had in my life, and some of them are real dreams that we dream at night.
I need to say here, that I believe that I have had some very important dreams during my life, and I have also written and published some of my dreams, one of those dreams that I call the most important dream of my life, it has been published in Google site because hub page marked it as duplicate content, and this is its web address; https://sites.google.com/site/prayersofreconciliation/, there are also some in blogger for the same reason, and what I have published in hub page will be also copied and pasted later in these same articles.
Anyhow, today we are not going to talk about plain dreams, because we are inclined to write about some of my life dreams, some of them are not real dreams in the real sense of the word, because the real dreams are those dreams that we dream when we are asleep, like the dreams we have mentioned above. Now, what we would like to talk about here are those day dreams that we dream when we are awake, which are mostly those things that we wish we had or we would be able to achieve in real life, so, let us see what those wishes could be. Therefore, let us start with some of our youth dreams, because the youths are those people that are dreaming mostly about these sorts of dreams.
What we would like to be like
Dreaming our youth dreams
When we are young we all dream of doing great things during our lives, or perhaps of becoming famous one day, it is so easy to think of being famous one day, when we are young. You see, everywhere we look, there are things that make us think about it, because we are surrounded by many examples, for instance, when we look at any programs on TV, we all would like to be like the hero or the heroine of that show, or perhaps the actor or actress since they are famous people; it is only normal; and why not at least dream about it, everybody wants to be a hero or a rich and famous actor, because that is what the world around us likes to be talking about, so, there is nothing wrong for dreaming about it, when everybody else wishes to be an hero or rich and famous as well.
But, the question here is. Is it going to be possible to achieve all those things that we dream about during our lives? Or are those dreams that we are dreaming going to remain for us only dreams? You see what we want or what we wish we had, they are two different things altogether that is the problem, so. our dreams might remain just dreams and nothing else. But we can try to achieve that whatever we dream about, it is part of our lives.
When we are young we all dream what our own life is going to bring to us. If we are born in a poor family we hope that one day we would be able to become rich, so that all those things that we were missing then, because we were not able to afford then would become a thing of the past, and we would be able to live in luxury.
Every one of us has got his own day dreams, and we dream about the need that we recognize we have, so, our dreams would be different to someone else dreams that is for sure. Although we day-dream, and then try to improve ourselves, if we can, about anything that is scarce or completely missing in our lives. So, if we are poor the most likely dream that we have is to become rich one day. When we are sick our dream is to get well again; if we are weak we would like to become strong, perhaps even stronger than a normal person is. These are the day dreams that we usually would have; we call these day dreams because they are our wishes that are missing in our life, so, dreaming about them could even be helpful, because it gives us a purpose to achieve in our lives.
At this point of time, I believe that some of you would like to ask; but what about the real dreams that we dream at night? Are they as important, as the day dreams that we have during the day? Or they are just dreams that happen, for unknown reasons, what could be said about those dreams?
There are reasons to believe, that the dream that we dream at night, are also affected by our own personality and needs, we have written about them in some of our hubs, and because we don’t want to repeat the same thing again, we are going to paste those links here for you to check them out; Menfranco Dreamland Modified, Dreamland dreams and beliefs, these are two links that talk about the dreams that we have, there are more dreams, but that part is more like religious dreams, however if you like to read that also these are the other links, Cosmic Spiritual Dreams, Dreamed about God, Now I believe that I have said enough about explaining dreaming away, so let me say something about our real life mixed up with some of our dreams.
Typical swing in the countryside
My yesterday youth dreams
Now let us talk about our past own life dreams, because they were forced upon us during our young lives, since they all came about, because of the situation that we happened to be in; so, I would like to start from when we were young; in my own case, I am going to talk about some of the hopes and dreams that I had then, including other fellows that happened to be in a similar situation, as I was, in my small family farm in Southern Italy, because that is where I was living, when I was very young, in those times we usually had a very hard time.
So, dear readers, here we would like to write about some views of a young boy, about his life experiences of this farm life, to see how we the boys that were living in the farms, were coping with this hard farm life, a very long time ago. What were our dreams? What were our hopes? While this hard and boring farm life was going on.
Of course, whatever one does, one is expected to rip rewards from whatever one is doing, in farming is just the same, but the rewards are usually in the hands of Mother Nature, we could only hope, that everything would work out all right, our dreams were that we would have plenty of produce to go around at harvest time, but a lot of years we could not produce that much, so, we had to do our best and continue to live this farm life anyway, then we would keep dreaming for a better harvest next year, that is all we could do. So, to hope and dream may seem silly in these situations, where one cannot control the situation. But even than dreaming away, would help a bit.
Now let us go back to tell you about, our farm life experience when I was young. If you have been reading our previous articles, where we have been taking about our boring farm life, you know that it was not that boring, because we were usually busy with our farm tasks, but it was boring in every other way, our life seemed to be at stand still in the farms, especially the farms of Southern Italy, in the early fifties when I was young and earlier than that, so, any change of life style would have been welcome. But we could only dream about it.
So, let us explain again our situation, because this situation could very much be different in other parts of the world. You see, in southern Italy most small farm are separated from the town, not only that, but only menfolk and boys stay in the farms all the time, while the women and the rest of the community stays in town most of the time, so, if we have said that life was boring, this is also one of the reasons; But in springtime usually things change for the better in the farms, as there are more contact with the town people, especially for young boys springtime is almost exciting, as they have lived through those hard winter months, and spring makes them dream of better things to come, because as you know spring is the season of love, we in the farm were dull young boys in every way, because we were not able to talk much, but perhaps we were ahead of the rest of the young community in this matter, if one would talk about physical sexual life openly, since we would witness it in the animal world, which is very much like our own world.
Anyhow, I believe that I have already written something, that explains what happens in the animal world, but perhaps that part would be better that is written somewhere else, where it is appropriate to explain the animal world, so, I am not going to publish it here, just to keep away from dirty descriptions.
Now, I believe that I have explained myself clear enough, so, we can say safely that we the boys in the farm new physical sexual love better than the other youths in town, even though we would not know how to behave if love came our way, because we would not know what to say; but anyhow we the dull young boys in the farm, could feel that force of love that Mother Nature would exercise on us, so, we would dream to meet a young girl one day, or just the sight of a young girl would stir us up, you see this is human nature and there is nothing wrong to feel that. I believe that love starts by dreaming about it.
As young boys, we would be waiting a special happening that occurs in early spring at Easter Monday, in the hope of seeing a few girls at close range, and if we were lucky and we had enough courage exchange a few words with them. I know it sounds stupid, but that is the way it was then.
Anyhow let me explain, what we are talking about here is a tradition, on Easter Monday most people go to have a picnic in the country, so, people get together in their family farms or their friends farms. As young boys, we were waiting for this happening and we dreamed of a few shady things, if we could meet the girls, even if meeting the girls was just being able to look at them a bit closer than the usual range.
One of the most and best thing that we would dream about, was that on Easter Monday we would prepare a swing that would be made of a rope tied to a tree branch. In order to be a bit of a show off, we would go up the tree while the girls were there and tie this rope up for the girls, and then if we were really lucky the girls would ask us to push them. Wow! That was really a dream that was going to be a bit too far. But dreams sometimes could happen, and if you were the lucky one, you would push the girl on the swing but try to be careful and do not touch her, in those places people are usually jealous, so, better be careful. Anyhow to push a girl on a swing was already a big dream that had become true, so, let us just dream about it; I hope you see what I mean; even simple things like this would make us dream away.
Dreaming is part of life
During our lives, we continue to dream one way or another, when one is young, we dream about for a good or better life for the future, hoping that it is possible to achieve. In this case the dreams that we dream are planning for a better life, so, even dreaming could become helpful, if we dream the right dreams and they can make an improvement to our lives.
I have dreamed many day-dreams when I was young, in other words I have been thinking about many ways, of how I could improve myself using what we already had in our small farm, but then slowly I realized that no matter what I could do, it was not going to solve the problem that we had, which was poverty, since our farm was not big enough; you see those were changing times that we were going through then, and small family farms were on the way out, it was better for us, if you could get a job somewhere else, but there were no jobs available anywhere, because the entire economy of these towns was general farming; so, it was a hard life that we lived then, a lot harder than these present days.
One of these great differences about this farming, is shown in one of my article in hub page called, Farming today compared to the old way, in this article, we have described the great difference in the cost of farming, because in those times farming was done manually, there were a lot of man hours involved in producing wheat and other farming products, so, the farm worker had to be paid very low wages to make ends meet, and many other things we could say; anyhow we could compare yesterday farming to today’s ways of farming, in this article.
Now because of all those negative things that were happening in farming, as I have said, I stopped dreaming about farming, and decided to immigrate to Australia. In Australia I have had a different life, because instead of farming I have been working in the building industry, here I became a bricklayer and worked most of my life as a bricklayer; for that reason, I have dreamed different dreams, most of which were how I could improve myself in my building position and other things. You see, I see that dreaming is part of life and I also see planning what to do next is part of life. Now, what we have dreamed to achieve or have planned to achieve, sometimes it does not work out; when it does not work out we need to assume that we have done our best, and as we all know we cannot be winner all the time, because sometime we win and sometimes we lose.
I believe that I have said enough in this article, but one day I will come back to talk about this subject again, where we will be talking about my dreams and some achievements in Australia. You see today in my old age, one of my last dreams is to write enough articles in hub page and earn some money, if I can. But at this very moment it does not seem to work, even though I have written several articles, they seem to produce very little money. I wonder what the other hub page writers think about the amount of money they are earning; it would be good if some of them would comment on this subject as well. Anyhow, whatever happens we can always try to dream a better dream, that we would be able to achieve. Let us sometimes dream our dreams, it might be helpful.
Anyhow I believe that I have said enough on this dreaming subject, so, I better stop writing now. See you next time when I think of something else to say.
