When we sleep, we dream many dreams
Our mankind dreamland
Welcome to our article (7), Mankind dreamland
May God guide and help me to write the right things in these dreamland writings?
Dear readers, welcome to this article of Mankind Dreamland. In our last article of “I dreamed about God”, we were talking about dreams, so, this article is the continuation or explanation of our last article, because we want to explain the way we feel about dreams. This is going to be a long article, because there are many things to discuss.
We want to write about dreamland, because we would like to explain to our readers including ourselves, what dreams could mean. You see, as far as I know everybody dreams, therefore, we should be interested in the dreams that we dream. One of the most interesting part of our dreams is that some dreams seem to be different from everyday life and happenings; but the question is, are they different? We don’t know. So, we are trying to understand and explained them per what we know or believe about dreams, in this article of dreamland writings. So, here we are going to talk about dreams and some of our own personal dreams.
Anyhow, dreams are dreams, so, they belong to the land of dreams and nothing else, but they may mean something else as well, as we are going to find out for ourselves, if we think about it. As we all know, in the land of dreams there is freedom of expression, where you can dream anything you like and say anything you want in your dreams, since dreams happen only in our own minds while we are asleep, and most times they are really what we feel inside us, and those things that for some reasons we would like to have in real life, or perhaps to avoid in real life. But anyhow, we can dream about them, as there is no restriction at all in dreamland. As you know dreams come and go just the way they happen, even if there is a sort of link between the dream and the person dreaming it.
Now that we have explained what we are going to write in our dreamland writings, in a serious way. I ask you our readers, to let me describe my dreamland in my own personal ways, as if it is in a dream. I believe that dreams are strange things that go through our brains at night, so, we should not put too much weight on them, but at the same time we should, because they could mean something to us. Anyhow, let me continue and let me introduce you first, to my general dreamland in a light-hearted way, as if it is in a dream; by welcoming you, and explaining some other things that happen in the dreams in dreamland.
When we sleep we dream many dreams
Describing dreamland as if it is a dream
Describing dreamland freely, as if it is in a dream
YOU ARE ALL WECOME TO MY DREAMLAND MY FRIEND!
AS THIS IS THE LAND OF DREAMS AND FANTASY
And therefore, you are all welcome to the land of dreams and fantasy!
Dreams are dreams dear readers, and the dreams that we dream can repeat themselves many times, and sometimes they could be slightly different from what we dreamed or said before, but they are still our dreams that repeat themselves, in many ways, so, here I am repeating again to my readers;
Let me welcome you to dreamland my friends!
You are all welcome here, and you can stay here if you like, because dreamland is free for everybody that in dreams and fantasy likes to dwell.
You see, you can dream whatever dreams you like in dreamland: sweet dreams, love dreams, good dreams, strange dreams, wild dreams and even nightmares. And perhaps, when you wake up, if you like, you can tell us your dreams after dreaming them. You see, most people are curious, and they would like to know what other people are dreaming, because they dream some dreams themselves; therefore, for this reason, we would like so much to talk about our dreams.
Now, if you happen to tell us one of your dreams you have dreamed, or if you listen to somebody else dream being told, please remember, that in dreamland nobody can tell whether the dream that we may be telling is the truth as well. Since in dreamland lies may seem truths and truths may seem lies as well; because even I, and I am the dreamer of dreamland, but even I don’t know what’s the truth in my dreams as well. I know that I have dreamed the dream and that is true, but it is only a dream that has taken place in my mind and that is all.
You see, dreamland is the place where our real feeling can get mixed up with our fantasy feeling, some of which could be just wishes and desires that we have in real life, so, the outcome of these mixed up feelings sometimes becomes strange and mixed up. Perhaps our minds are trying to sort our feeling up while we are asleep, or is there something in the cosmos of the universe that shows up and links with us while we are dreaming? We really don’t know, but we would like to know, so, let us keep talking about our dreams hereunder.
The light fantastic of dreamland dreams
Now let us talk about our dreams
We know, that to talk about dreams with a firm definition is not easy, because dreams are very shifty things, in fact, I think about dreams as the light fantastic, because they can change at any time without warning; they can change in any shape, form or colour, when they change too much it becomes a confusion, so, we give up understanding them, at other times dreams seem to mean something to us and we want to understand them. So, let me try to understand and talk about how we feel about some of our dreams.
This is how sometimes we feel about our dreams, when we dream some beautiful dreams, or near impossible dreams that we like, where we want to continue to dream whatever we are dreaming, perhaps in the hope of being able to achieve at least in our dreams that something that is missing in our normal everyday life. Here we may have to add that, we dream also about our day dreams that usually are thoughts and desires that we personally have during the days, these day dreams that we have, we may or may not express them openly during our lives, but they are our thoughts and our dreams; these day dreams that we have sometimes get mixed up at night with our normal sleeping dreams, this gives us something to think about and we would like to know what those dreams mean.
Now, we have called this article Dreamland, and we will be talking mostly about the dreams that we dream at night, but just to show our readers what we are talking about, in this article we are going to talk briefly about our day dreams as well.
Because in this case our dreamland dreams are going to be written beside religious articles, just because of the spiritual dreams that we have written, plus other spiritual dreams that we are going to write soon, following it article in hub pages, therefore, we will be more serious when we talk about religious issues and try to avoid those dreams that could offend religious believers; but at the same time we need to be free and talk about anything at all in dreamland, because in dreamland there should be no restrictions at all. You see, we are free to think what we like, we are free to dream what we like, and if possible, we should be free to say what we like; but it does not work like that every time. We may also have to say that there are times when dreaming (thinking) anything could even become our daydreams, which are not our real dreams, but they are just our wishes of things that we would like to have.
Anyhow, dreams are not that easy to explain, but since we must start writing about our dreams in dreamland, let us start from the most important dreams that we could dream in our lives, and these dreams should be our spiritual dreams, after that we will go back to explain dreamland in general terms and in a light hearted way if possible, and then back again to religious dreams and other things, you see dreams are a very complex thing to explain, but let us look and try to explain spiritual dreams first, in our sub-article of spiritual dreamland.
God the cosmos of the universe and dreams
Here, we need to explain our human nature, so that it could make sense about what we are going to say. We have reasons to believe that we are made of two different sides, one is our physical side and then we have a spiritual side, the spiritual side cannot be seen, as it is supposed to be from another dimension and belongs to the spirit world. But when we dream both sides play a part in our dreams.
Now, because here we are writing about spiritual dreamland, we must accept that the most important night-dreams that we can have in our lives must be those dreams that come from the other side, which some people call the spiritual world of the dead. We believe the world of the dead is where all spiritual beings exist, in a parallel dimension to our own physical dimension. This dimension that we are talking about is also where God and its angels dwell.
From what we have been told there are reasons to believe, that the spiritual world is the world of the dead, called also the other dimension. Now, the souls or the spirit of the dead people can communicate with us during our sleep, also God and other spiritual being would be able to communicate with us in our dreams.
What we are saying here is not a new way of seeing these spiritual dreams, because even the Bible reports many dreams that would be God send dreams, we have said this in our previous article, Dreamed about God, you see, it is believed that God can communicate to the dreamer’s important things that might be about to happen, or whatever God message would be. So, we may have to imagine or believe that God, the spiritual world, the souls of the dead and the cosmos are all connected, even though it is hard for us to imagine how this could be; but it is even harder to imagine otherwise, if we want to make sense about our dreams and many other things that we are willing to believe in.
If we accept what we have said above, then: May God of the universe, the dead souls and the wisdom of the universe, where everything is stored, and dreams of the other side may come from, let us hope that they would guide us to say the right things in these Dreamland writings when we talk about them.
Anyhow, dreamland is supposed to cover all sorts of dreams, but because we want to integrate it with our religious writings, we have modified our original dreamland, as written here-under.
Dreams can be serious or fantasy dreams
Dear readers, we have modified this dreamland article, because it was written to cover all sorts of dreams. But today we are writing this article with our religious articles, we want it to cover the spiritual and religious side of our dreamland writings, so, it can become part of our religious writings that we are writing now. You see, we had to modify our dreamland writings to use it, because I have had several religious dreams that I am going to write here, therefore, I need this dreamland article to connect and explain to our readers, what these religious dreams might mean and where they may come from if possible.
Having said that, it does not mean that we are going to change our original version completely, because most of what we have written will still be there. The only thing that changes, it is that we are going to add more articles to explain the dreams of spiritual and religious origin, but at the same time take away some stuff that would clash with religion. Anyhow, this article of dreamland was written the first time to cover, normal everyday dreams, religious and cosmic dreams and the day dreams, I hope you see what I mean.
So, now let us go back to explain what we need to change, if we need to change anything, while we explain our theory about our dreams.
Anyhow, this is the land of, DREAMS AND FANTASY
We dream many dreams during our lives, the dreams in our lives cover a very large field, some of these dreams can even be daydreams, some others plain dreams that we dream at night. Dreams happen for many reasons and some of these reasons we are going to discuss in this article, the word dream has many meanings, you see, at this very moment even the dream of writing about dreams can be said to be a dream of the writer, because I am thinking or dreaming to write a good article about dreams here.
Now, let us talk about dreams in a more personal way and about my own dreams as well. Dreams are usually linked with our own life happenings and our life desires. Dreams may also be true or false, since they can represent something that has happened to the dreamer in a modified way, or they may be false or seem false, because the dreamer cannot see anything at all that this dream can be linked to him, because nothing similar has ever occurred in his life. We believe that these sorts of dreams come from an unknown source and they can mean different things to the dreamer.
Dreams are hard to understand what they mean, but if we try hard to learn their meanings, we might be able to understand what some dreams may mean. You see, even when we tell a dream, it may have different meanings to the people involved. I need to explain here, and I have to say this, of course, I have dreamed the dream that I am telling you and that’s true. But it is only a dream and it cannot be the truth just because it is a dream; but at the same time, it cannot be a lie as well, because what I am telling you, it has taken place at least inside my mind you know; therefore, dreams have many sides and depends on the way you see your dreams. You see, dreams are dreams and they can cover a very large part of about everything, so, you can just dream about anything you like even day dreams. So, for instance, let us say that you would like to see some YouTube videos. Now, this day-dream that I am talking about, I happen to have the power to make it become true for you, because you see, I can paste this link and your dream will become true; here is the link to YouTube and your dream has become true.
If the link works for my readers, then it is a dream that has become true, don’t you agree?
So far, we have talked about the dreams that we dream at night, except for the YouTube video. So, now let us talk briefly about the day-dreams that we dream during the day, because everyone of us thinks and desire things during our lives, these are our day-dreams.
Dreamland where dreams have no boundary
Now let us talk about day dreaming
Dear readers now let us explain our day dreaming. I know that this sub-article is not in the right place but will keep it here because it is part of dreamland. Anyhow, most of us will be day-dreaming during our lives, day dreaming are those thoughts and desires that come to our mind, when we would like to have something that we haven’t got, or do something that very likely we are not allowed to do openly, or we think that it would be better to keep it to ourselves, or our position is such that we would like to keep our thoughts private, so, we start day dreaming while we think of a way how to satisfy our desire. These dreams and desires that we have, it may or may not be possible to talk openly to people around us, but, even if we could, it would be very hard for us to achieve that in real life. Anyhow, this is one of those things that has happened to me; so, I have been day-dreaming, but let me describe it to you how this negative day-dreaming has affected me.
My day-dreaming description
So, here I am, in my dreamland my friends. Because this is where sometimes I like to dwell these days, whether I like to be in it or not makes no difference, because my lifestyle forces me to be in dreamland, to dream about those things that I would like to have in real life, but I cannot have. You see, this is how I felt when I was writing dreamland for the first time, as I was daydreaming to escape my real-life pains.
It had to happen to me, because during my life I got tired and bored from the painful events of my life, and to escape my pains and boredom, I have tried to find a way out capable to break that boredom and gloom. Therefore, nowadays in the land of dreams and fantasy I often happen to dwell, which is a situation forced by life’s events, that were and are even now beyond my control. I believe that most of us can end up in a situation like this, which doesn’t agree with us and we try to escape, even if we do that by day dreaming and gaining nothing from it.
I don’t like being in this sort of situation, because by nature I am a doer and not a dreamer, so, I would like very much to do some physical work, since that would keep my body fit and my mind occupied, and it would also give me some pleasure when I finish a task, because then, I would feel that I have achieved something worth doing.
Instead I am ruining my health, and I may be wasting away in the land of dreams and fantasy. But in my forced and hopeless situation I can’t do what I want, and therefore I am forced to dwell in the land of dreams and fantasy, just to keep my mind occupied in the hope that I keep it healthy. So, you’ll have to forgive me if sometimes I will sound a bit strange, because in the land of dreams and fantasy everything can feel or be strange.
I suppose that by now you know, or perhaps you have guessed already, that in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no restrictions whatsoever, so anyone can dream anything one likes, say anything in his own day-dreams thoughts, think of anything and do anything at all, while you dream your own day-dreams. Because in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no man-made rules, and one is set completely free of all human acquired restrictions.
Because of this great freedom one can let oneself go wild with his own thoughts, and therefore, one can dream about anything that one likes; and in doing so a person doesn’t harm anyone, or break any man-made rules, since it all happens in one’s own mind.
Therefore, in the realm of dreams and fantasy just about everybody may willingly like to dwell, just because one can dream of anything that one wants; but can’t have it in real life. And in doing so one may be able to avoid being completely depressed, since one avoids that despair that otherwise may sent one crazy. Therefore, for someone to dream in the land of dreams and fantasy may be said that it is an escape from realty. But at the same time there is no harm done in day-dreaming your dreams, since it becomes an essential escape that serves well all humanity, because somehow it can help in keeping a balanced mental health, even if these dreams sometimes happen to be painful daydreams and nothing else.
Now that we have explained day dreaming, even though we had to use a very negative day dream that brings no joy to hear about it, let us go back to explain normal night dreams; so, let us talk about how to classify the type of dreams that we dream at night in our next sub-article here under.
Trying to classify the types of dreams
Trying to classify the types of dreams that we dream at night.
Dear readers, we are going to try to classify the dreams that we dream, since we would like to understand our dreams; we will be talking about any sort of dreams including spiritual dreams that we are going to write in our next article, so; may God help me say the right things? But because we are writing these religious writings with a future religious view, perhaps we should say; may God of the universe life-force that makes dreams come to us help me say the right things in our dreamland writings?
Let us explain, here we are talking about our dreams, to make sense and continue to talk about our dreams in dreamland, I believe that we need to classify the types of dreams that we dream, therefore, let us talk about dreams in general and then try to classify them the best way we can.
We believe that there are two types of dreams, which are: the dreams that we dream when we are asleep, and the dreams that we dream when we are awake, which we have already talked about in this article above. The dreams that we dream when we are awake are just wishes and thoughts that we have while we are awake, so, we could say they are just wishful thinking; but let us talk about the real dreams that we dream at night.
The dreams that we dream when we are asleep can be divided into three types at least:
(1) Shallow dreams that seem body dreams.
(2) Normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams.
(3) Dreams from the unknown, as the Afterlife world and also the cosmic world.
All the dreams that we dream when we are sleeping are linked close together, they can be so close together that it is hard to know when one ends and the other begins, in fact, they overlap each other a lot. And sometimes the daydreams can creep into the night dreams.
We will talk about the daydreams again later, therefore, now let us talk about the dreams that we dream when we are asleep.
Sleeping dreams, Type-one.
These type of dreams seem to be mostly shallow dreaming, and they are often only a reflection of life that we happen to live at that particular time, and part of these dreams we’ll dream while we are half asleep, and part of them when we are fully asleep; these dreams will usually reflect the happenings of the day before the dream, or something that we have thought that was about to happen, or something that our body needs and the need surfaces in our thought as we sleep, so, we can say that our activities and desires would show in our dreams; so, let us talk about this dreaming issue.
Our activities are shown in our dreams
Since our activities would be shown in our dreams specially in dream type one, it is very likely to happen that if we have had a very busy and confuse day, our dreams will show that feeling of confusion, and while we dream of one thing it suddenly changes to something else, and there are times when the very same objects that we have used during the day may come into our dreams, perhaps they will be there only for a split second, or they may be replaced by something else and only the rhythm of the happenings may be present in our dream, we need to look at all those things put together, if we want to understand our own dreams, and it would be good to remember that it is the dreamer himself that would be able to understand his own dreams better than anybody else. Since he is the only person that knows what has gone through his mind the day before.
Anyhow, these types of dreams seem to suggest that our mind is sorting out the happenings of the day before or recent activities, and perhaps filing them in its own way in a corner of our brain, before our mind can have a real rest and move on doing something else.
A second type of these dreams, it is when we are asleep, and our body feels the need to have something that is necessary to its welfare, then we may very likely dream of the desired things: So, if we go to bed hungry in our sleep we may dream of food, and perhaps we may try to eat it but usually we would not succeed, so, our hunger remains with us. If we are thirsty we may dream of water, and of fountains and of any other sort of drinks, but somehow, we don’t drink and if we do we wonder why it doesn’t quench our thirst; and this is all because our body needs are still present in our dream. The following example may well be the one that most people have experienced themselves.
You see, if we need to go to the toilet for a piss, then, we will dream of trying to find a toilet, and we will have all sorts of problems to find a spot to piss, and when we have found one and try to piss we wake up and find out that we have really to go to the real toilet.
If at night we have a bad digestion or something else that affect our well-being, whether we are aware of it or not, we may very likely have a nightmare. Here it seems to me that our mind doesn’t want our body to relax completely, so, we have a nightmare to keep our circulation going faster that it would normally do if we were sound asleep, and in doing so, we may solve more readily our present physical problem. So, in this case even a nightmare could be helpful, or at least tell us that there is something that we should worry about.
So, all these types of dreams seem to have a purpose, which is to adjust any difference needed between mind and body while we are asleep. And also, our mind needs to dream in order to review those day happenings, and file them in its own way.
We believe that it might work very much like this:
For example; if you fill up a clean glass with dirty water, and then leave it on the bench overnight: In the morning you will find that most of the impurities in the water are settled at the bottom, and a few that are lighter than water at the top, so, most of the water now is clear water.
In a parallel way like the glass of water, while our body rests at night our mind works by sorting things out and settling things down, so, during our dreams our mind seems to be looking at the impurities that are settling down, and our dream are the process of settlement and purification, and when everything has settled our mind then will file them to keep a record and shut them down in a corner of our brain.
The conclusion for this type of dreams is that: Dreams type-one have something to do with the ever-present body needs of the dreamer.
Now, what we have written above is our personal explanation for dreams type 1 only. Here we should have followed with dreams type 2. But, because this article is becoming too long and dreams type 2, sometimes resamples other types of dreams, as they could be very close to cosmic dreams and other dreams; dreams type 2 and other explanations will be written in our next article. Because in this last sub-article in this hub hereunder, we would like to start talking about the cosmic or spiritual dreams, since these writings are being modified and follow more closely our religious views, and the cosmic dreams would or could be linked to religions easily, as they seem somehow removed from our bodily needs, or at least some of them seem to be that way. So, let us try to explain cosmic dreams.
Looking at the cosmos of the universe
Explaining cosmic dreams
Here, we are trying to explain what we believe are cosmic dreams
So, let us leave behind for the time being dreams type 1 and 2, we will come back to them later. Because at this point of time we believe that another explanation is required more urgently, you see, we would like to talk about religious dreams, which could be called cosmic dreams, since they seem to come from the other side, or another dimension so to speak.
Now, in this following explanation of dreams, we want to include our hubs ‘Dreamed about God’, since there are several religious dreams mentioned in that hub, we need also to point out about ‘The most important dream of my life’, that today unfortunately is no longer written in hub pages, but it is written in http://manneedsgod.blogspot.com, in this blog-site pages, click on the link; “The most important dream of my life”.
Of course, there are more Cosmic spiritual dreams that we want to talk about, and other dreams that people dream; anyhow let me try to explain how the world of dreams and these cosmic or spiritual dreams could be explained.
Now, to make sense about the dreams that we dream, we need to put everything together as a whole, and then see how it could work together, therefore, everything must be in the right place and make sense to our logic human reasoning, for this reason we have come up with this theory:
To make sense in the world of dreams, dreams must be connected in a way that make sense to us. So, it should be possible for us to look at those dreams and be able to make sense, therefore, when dreams are not connected with our body needs as in dreams type 1, the following question could arise; why do we dream these dreams and where do these dreams come from?
To understand better this issue, let us look at what people have believed in the past. Looking back at the history of mankind, our forebears believed in the world of dreams, they believed that sometimes the spirit of the dead would visit us in a dream and give us messages or something like that, to warn us about what could happen in the future. Now, what we have described about our forebears’ beliefs, it may or may not be right, but they believed that anyhow. Of course, this explanation covers only part of our question but at the same time we would like to find a way that includes all the dreams that we dream, so, where are the spiritual dreams that we dream come from, and why we dream them one may ask?
We believe that the only place that they can exist and come from is the cosmos, since the cosmos can hold all the records of the universe, and the cosmos is in contact with each one of us, of course, we need to work out how this could happen. But this may require just a simple explanation, that we are going to write here under. Anyhow, whether this explanation is right or wrong we don’t know but let us look at it.
So, let us assume that the cosmos is capable of holding all sort of records within itself, and then, it becomes the way how everything is communicated in the whole wide world, therefore, there are all sorts of sounds, words and ideas flouting throughout the cosmos, now when we go to sleep we somehow can tune into this cosmos records, and so, we may dream anything at all including the strangest things, it could be like looking at the TV where you tune in and watch whatever is there, but while you are dreaming you have no control of the channels and other things, so, things can get all mixed up.
Now, let us look briefly at what our ancestors believed about the souls of their forebears; they believed they could come in their dreams and leave a message to them. Having said that and that the cosmos can hold any record and anything at all; so, it follows that if there is something in the other side that wants to get in touch with us, they know how to use the cosmos and send messages to us. This setup could apply to all spiritual being of the cosmos, this could also explain how God and the other spiritual beings use the cosmos. Here we could add that they could easily do that because they are all part of the cosmos.
Well this is just a way to explain these dreams, whether it is right or not we cannot tell yet, but it is a possible way how things are in the world of dreams. Of course, there are many other ways to explain the world of dreams, but we are going to stop here for the time being.
May God of the universe master of the cosmos capable of modifying everything according to his will within the cosmos, by using his knowledge and the knowledge that exists in the cosmos; we say, may God guide us to write the right things in these dreamland writings?
See you soon in our next article of, Dreamland dreams and beliefs including an outline of sleeping dreams type two and three, and Cosmic spiritual dreams.
May God bless us all?
