Dreams.

We all dream of better future,contentment, happiness,peace,success & so on ! Many are chastised for daydreaming !

Why do we dream ? There are no definitive answers as yet.Many scientists ,philosophers & even religions have debated the purpose of dreams & answers are still being sought.

We often dream during sleep ...during the Rapid Eye Movement Stage ( REM ) of sleep.We tend to forget many of the dreams .We do recall some of them.All can dream,even if their sight is wanting .Also,in case of those who are visually impaired,dreams are a reality.Dreams will be vivid or hazy.This is so, even if ,carrots are skipped or a  part of meals !

Many important discoveries were discovered in dreams.The most significant example of this is Kekule dreamt about the tetravalent nature of carbon.Paul McCartney has admitted that he dreamt about the tune of the famous Beatles song "Yesterday " before it became a reality ! President Abraham Lincoln dreamt about his assasination.Even our own mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan had dreams that led to deep insights ,theories & discoveries in Mathematics which continue to have world wide acceptance !

Hence,dreaming is essential ! As Kekule said "Let us learn to dream."

I believe that the spirit world communicates with us through dreams because that is when we are most receptive to their vibration. That's why great discoveries and premonitions are made through dreams.

Vasudha Rao said...
