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?
Dear readers, welcome to this article of Mankind Dreamland, this article is the continuation of our last article, “I dreamed about God”, where we were talking about dreams. Now, because we want to explain how we feel about dreams, and the connections that they can have; this is going to be a long article, with many things to discuss.
We want to write about dreamland, because we would like to explain what dreams could mean. You see, as far as I know everybody dreams, therefore, we are interested in the dreams that we dream. One of the most interesting part of our dreams, is that dreams can be different from everyday life; but are they different? We don’t know. So, we are trying to understand and explained them per what we believe about dreams.
Anyhow, dreams are dreams, so, they belong to the land of dreams and nothing else, but they may mean something else as well. We can 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 in our minds while we are asleep, and most times they are what we feel inside us, and those things that for some reasons we want to have in real life, or to avoid in real life. But anyhow, we can dream about them, as there is no restriction in dreamland. As you know dreams come and go just the way they happen, even if there is a link between the dream and the person dreaming it.
Now that we have explained what we are writing in our dreamland writings; let me describe my dreamland in my 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 can mean something to us. Anyhow, let me introduce you to dreamland in a light-hearted way, as if it is in a dream; by welcoming you, and explaining other things that happen in dreamland.
When we sleep we dream many dreams
Describing dreamland as if it is 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, or they are different from what we dreamed before, but they are our dreams that repeat themselves, in many ways, so, here I am repeating again to my readers;
You are all welcome here, and you can stay here and keep me company, 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 when you wake up, you can tell us your dreams. You see, most people are curious, and they want to know what other people are dreaming, because they dream dreams themselves; therefore, for this reason, they want to talk about 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 are 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 my dreams can mean. 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.
You see, dreamland is the place where our feeling can get mixed up with our fantasy feeling, some of which could be wishes and desires that we have in real life, so, the outcome of these feelings can be 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 that 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 can mean something to us and we want to understand them. So, let me try to understand and talk about how we feel about our dreams.
This is how we can feel about dreams, when we dream beautiful dreams that we like, where we want to continue to dream whatever we are dreaming, 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 about our day dreams, which are thoughts and desires that we 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; anyhow, these day dreams can 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, in this article of Dreamland, we will be talking about the dreams that we dream at night, but at the same time, we are going to talk briefly about our daydreams as well.
Because our dreamland dreams are going to be written beside religious articles, because of the spiritual dreams that we have written, plus other spiritual dreams that we are going to write soon in hub pages, we will be more serious when we talk about religious issues, so, we will try to avoid those dreams that can offend religious believers; but at the same time we need to be free to talk about anything 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 when possible, we should be free to say what we like; but it does not work like that every time.
We can say, that there are times when thinking about things that we want, they become our daydreams, which are not real dreams, but they are wishes of things that we would like to have. Anyhow, dreams are not easy to explain, but since we must start writing about dreams, let us start from the most important dreams that we can dream, and these dreams are our spiritual dreams, after that we will go back to explain dreamland in general terms, and then back again to religious dreams and other things, you see dreams are a very complex thing to explain, but let us try to explain spiritual dreams first, in this 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, where all spiritual beings exist.
From what we have been told there are reasons to believe, that the souls or the spirit of the dead people can communicate with us during our sleep, also God and other spiritual being can communicate with us in our dreams.
What we are saying that people believe this, because even the Bible reports many dreams that are God send dreams, as we said in, Dreamed about God, you see, it is believed that God can communicate to the dreamer’s important things that are about to happen, or whatever God message is. So, we must imagine that God, the spiritual world, the souls of the dead and the cosmos are all connected, if we want to make sense about God send dreams.
Anyhow, dreamland is supposed to cover all sorts of dreams, but because we want to integrate it better with our religious writings, we have modified our original dreamland.
Dreams can be serious or fantasy dreams
Dear readers, we have modified the original dreamland article, because it was written to cover all dreams. But today we are writing this article with our religious articles, so, it can become part of our religious writings. You see, we had to modify our dreamland writings, 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 mean.
Having said that, it does not mean that we are going to change our original version completely. 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 clashes with religion.
Anyhow, let me explain, 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 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.
Now, let us talk about dreams in a more personal way. Dreams can be linked with our own life happenings and desires. Dreams can be true or false, since they can represent things that have happened to the dreamer, or they may be false, because the dreamer cannot see that this dream can be linked to him, because nothing similar has ever occurred in his life. We believe that these 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 can understand what 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, 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 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 daydreams.
So far, we have talked about the dreams that we dream at night. So, now let us talk about the daydreams that we dream during the day, because everyone of us thinks and desire things during our lives, these are our daydreams.
Dreamland where dreams have no boundary
Now let us talk about day dreaming
Dear readers now let us explain our daydreaming. Anyhow, most of us will be daydreaming during our lives, daydreaming are those thoughts and desires that come to our mind, when we want to escape from something, but we cannot; when we would like to have something that we haven’t got, or do something that we are not allowed to do openly. So, we start daydreaming while we think of a way how to satisfy our desire. Anyhow, this has happened to me; so, I have been daydreaming, but let me describe how this daydreaming has affected me.
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.
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 beyond my control.
I don’t like being in this situation, because by nature I am a doer and not a dreamer, so, I would like to do physical work, since that would keep my body fit and my mind occupied, and it would give me some pleasure when I finish a task, because I have achieved something worth doing.
Instead I am ruining my health, and I am wasting away in the land of dreams and fantasy. But in my forced and hopeless situation I can’t do what I want, 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.
I suppose that by now you know, that in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no restrictions whatsoever, so, we can dream anything we likes, say anything we want and do anything we want, while we dream our daydreams. Because in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no man-made rules, and we are set free of all human acquired restrictions.
Because of this great freedom we can let ourselves go wild with our thoughts; therefore, we can dream about anything that we like; and in doing so a person doesn’t harm anyone, or break any man-made rules, since it all happens in our own minds.
Therefore, in the realm of dreams and fantasy about everybody may willingly dwell, because we can dream of anything that we want; but can’t have it in real life. And in doing so we can avoid being completely depressed, since we avoid that despair that otherwise may sent us 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 daydreaming our dreams, since it becomes an essential escape that serves well all humanity, because somehow it can help in keeping a balanced mental health.
Now that we have explained daydreaming, let us go back to explain normal night dreams, and how how to classify the type of dreams that we dream at night in our 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 will try to classify the dreams that we dream, since we want to understand our dreams; we will be talking about dreams including spiritual dreams that we are going to write in our next article, so; may God help me say the right things?
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. The dreams that we dream when we are awake are just wishes and thoughts that we have, while we are awake, so, we can say they are wishful thinking; but let us talk about the 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.
Sleeping dreams, Type-one.
These type of dreams are mostly shallow dreaming, and they are 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 may reflect the happenings of the day before, 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 shows in our dreams; so, let us talk about this dreaming issue.
Our activities are shown in our dreams
We believe that our activities will show in our dreams; in dream type one, it is 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. If we want to understand our dreams, it would be good to remember that it is the dreamer himself that can 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 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 dream of the desired things: So, if we go to bed hungry in our sleep we may dream of food, and we try to eat it but 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.
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 need 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 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 our present physical problem. So, in this case even a nightmare can help, 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 between mind and body while we are asleep. And, 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 is 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, resamples other types of dreams, as they are 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, we want to try to explain cosmic dreams.
Looking at the cosmos of the universe
Explaining cosmic dreams
Anyhow, let us leave behind for the time being dreams type 1 and 2, we will come back to them later. Because we believe that another explanation is required more urgently, you see, we would like to talk about cosmic or religious dreams, since they seem to come from the other side, or another dimension so to speak.
Now, in this following explanation of dreams, we include our article Dreamed about God, and “The most important dream of my life”.
Of course, there are more Cosmic spiritual dreams to talk about, and other dreams that people dream; anyhow, let me try to explain how the world of cosmic or spiritual dreams is.
Now, to make sense about the dreams that we dream, we need to put everything together as a whole, and then see how it can 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, when dreams are not connected with our body needs as in dreams type 1, the following question can arise; why do we dream these dreams and where do these dreams come from?
To understand this issue, we must 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 the spirit of the dead can visit us in a dream and give us messages, to warn us about what can happen in the future. Now, what we have said may or may not be right, but they believed that anyhow. Of course, this explanation covers part of our question; while we want to find a way that includes all the dreams that we dream; so, where are the spiritual dreams that we dream come from?
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 can happen.
So, let us assume that the cosmos is capable of holding all records within itself, and the way of 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 can tune into this cosmos records, and so, we may dream anything at all including the strangest things, it can be like looking at the TV where you tune in and watch whatever is there.
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 all records; 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 can apply to all spiritual being of the cosmos, this can explain how God and the other spiritual beings use the cosmos.
Well this is just a way to explain these dreams, whether it is right or not we cannot tell, but it is a possible way how things are in the world of dreams.
Anyhow, this article is too long. So, 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?
