Dreams…

Its weird how the most obscure dreams can make us think deep about our own lives, and actually find meaning to them!! I’m not talking about your goals and aspirations, I mean those things you have when your mind has been tortured through hours of boring lectures in a dusty classroom.
I seldom dream during my sleep, or maybe its more precise to say that I seldom remember them. But when I do remember them, I do feel excited on recalling their vagueness. No matter how vague your dream may be, it had to come from some deep corner of the little subconscious part of your mind. So makes you wonder……. what effed up part of your mind wanted to sing a song on another planet :S . Its funny how dreams can sometimes transcend into your real world. I remember the scream of a woman in my dream turning out to be my mom waking me up in my room. And then there are the times when the dreams are so real, you wake up and continue acting as if the same scenario was continuing. There was a time when I was 12 years old, I woke up thinking I was getting late for school. I brushed my teeth, took a bath and changed into my uniform. My mom had been there the whole time and realized what was happening. But for the kicks, she waited till I had my bag and water bottle ready, and said in a calm voice “Its 6 in the evening. That was a dream…..maybe you should change back??”.

Throughout history, people have sought meaning in dreams or divination through dreams. After giving some thought to my own dreams, I’m convinced its mental thrash that the brain is playing around with when you are asleep, just for the kick of it. Some people think it signifies what you want, but if you’ve had the kinda dreams every boy wishes, you know that they get over just before the good part begins (Yup, we’ve all had them). Or the ones where you’re falling from a building but you always wake up before you actually hit the ground. I’ve had one where I’m in space and a good friend of mine is standin beside me, while I float around her. Care to interpret that?

I do not know if a dream can reveal anything about you, other people or about the problems that most worry you. I have no idea if they are even metaphoric and symbolic and explain what is happening around us. Or maybe they are nothing but random electrical pulses between neurons in our brain. Whatever the reason, I’m glad there’s some crazy part in our minds which shows us a ridiculous world and convinces us, if for a short while, that its all real and worth worrying about.
