Dreams, the door to wisdom that enlightens life

Dreams are the door to wisdom that enlightens life

Although life is not a dream, if we are inspired by dreams, then the dreams are not in vain. Take a look at the following example:

An only child had a dream of "crossing the river". It turns out that this boy was very pampered at home, and his mother doted on him very much, taking care of him in every possible way, allowing him to live a life with food to open his mouth and clothes to stretch out his hands. His parents were still worried about him all day long, fearing that something bad would happen to him, so he was not allowed to swim, walk, or play in the street. He also wanted to get rid of these restrictions and did not want to become a person who only relied on others and could not be independent. But his childish smugness, dependence, and constant discomfort caused by fear and rage drove him into therapy. After three months of treatment, he had a dream: "I wanted to go to the river and find a boat, but I couldn't find one. I was still young and couldn't swim when I was about five or six years old (I actually learned to swim when I was 18 years old). ). I saw a mysterious uncle, and he gestured that he could carry me across the river. At this time, I was very happy and let him pick me up. When he held me and started walking, I suddenly felt scared. If I didn't escape, I would definitely die. By now we were in the middle of the river. I mustered up the courage and jumped into the water from the uncle's arms. At first I thought I would drown, but unexpectedly I started paddling and quickly reached the other side. When I looked back, the uncle was gone."

The day before this dream, the dreamer attended a banquet. He suddenly felt that all his interests were in winning the favor and appreciation of others. For the first time he felt that he was actually childish and had to make a decision: either remain a carefree child or grow up painfully. He felt that he should no longer deceive himself, should no longer think that everything should be the way it was before, and regard pleasing people as a real achievement. These thoughts shocked him greatly, and that night he had the above dream.

In fact, this dream is not difficult to understand. Crossing the river is a decision he must make to move from the shore of childhood to the other shore of adulthood. However, if he thought he was only five or six years old and could not swim, how could he cross the river? The uncle who volunteered to pick him up actually represented many people - people who were moved by his charm and future. The dream thus far truly symbolized his inner problems and the solutions he often used to solve them.

However, he realized that if he continued to beg for help from others, he would be destroyed. This understanding is very sharp and clear. Feeling the need to make up his mind, he jumped into the water. He realized that he really could swim (obviously in the dream he was no longer a five- or six-year-old child). He can reach the other side without help from others. It was a kind of wish fulfillment, but in that dream it was the recognition of his becoming an adult, and a clear awareness of the fact that: His habit of begging others will surely destroy him. And he also discovered that as long as you have the courage to jump into the water, you can really swim. After a while, the young man received inspiration from the dream and improved himself.
