THOUGHTS ON DREAMING

dreaming

When we fall asleep our left brain becomes passive and its continuous chatter recedes…this allows our right brain to become more active and as usual expresses itself creatively in metaphors and symbols …it interestingly reflects as a mirror without judgment what is happening within the left brain…if understood or interpreted it can offer us real insight into the nature of the problematic ego

Our everyday life experienced by the left brain is largely a socially conditioned fabrication of reality.

I’m not asleep… but that doesn’t mean I’m awake. ~Author Unknown

Those who have compared our life to a dream were right…. We sleeping wake, and waking sleep. ~Michel de Montaigne
