Interpreting Your Own Dreams 4: The Two Worlds of Time
One of the great aspects of the dream world is its interesting way of dealing with time. You can be asleep in your bed and within a very short span of time travel to several different countries. While we are wake, we are governed by the clock that is determined by the earth’s journey around the sun. It is sequential, one moment following another. In the dream world time seems to be more flexible. In the physical world things have a definite beginning and ending. In the dream world the laws of time are stretched so that they can have the options of communicating whatever we need. It teaches us much about the way the mind can work.
For instance, it often happens that people dream about something one night and then some days or months or years later the dream comes true in the material world. This is the same process that an architect uses when a building is construction. The building is constructed in the mind of the architect long before the building ever is finished in the material world. This is why so many self help programs emphasize the importance of seeing the end in the beginning.
People often communicate the phenomenon of time by saying that they were in one location and then suddenly they were somewhere else. This shows that time can just jump without having to take years and years of living or multiple flights to various locations. It teaches us that we can use our minds to connect one experience to another so that it sees their relationship. If you are dreaming a dream that shifts from one place to another, it can be assumed that the two locations are closely related and usually is there to prove that though you move jobs or houses or families, it is still the same you with the same problems that is moving around. You can’t solve a personal issue by moving. It is much better to solve the issue first and then move rather than the other way around. If you have a problem with finishing what you start, you can’t change it by changing locations. You have to change your spiritual space, i.e., more determination and then the new options appear that you never thought possible before.
The primary issue of all human beings is inclusion and family is the first priority of inclusion. If in your dreams, you are having an intimate physical relation with someone else, and it isn’t your spouse, it doesn’t mean that you should go out and immediately have a sexual relation with that person. It means that the person you are relating to in the dream has a spiritual quality that you are needing, which, when it is actualized, will bring your life into harmony with everyone around you. Dreams always are merciful. They warn you ahead of time what you ought to be working on to make life work and therefore, is much more efficient. However, if you don’t pay attention to the dreams, life will present you with the same issue until it is solved. If you are a womanizer, it just means that you are trying to solve spiritual issues that will bring your life into harmony with others through sex. It doesn’t work. Purity works because it allows you to deal with the fact that you have virtues that are as yet to be unleashed in your life. It is pretty simple and pretty basic and dreams are the most merciful way to handle it because they act before your life is ruined outwardly. It is a great predictive device because it always gives you information beforehand. It is like knowing who is going to win the race before it begins. Understanding time in a dream is what makes it such a powerful tool.
Hmm. I wish I had access to some CEOs and presidents’ dreams. I think I will hire myself out.
