A dream has two definitions. One refers to the involuntary event that usually occurs when the mind is at rest or sleeping. These dreams could either be images, situations, feelings or ideas but without exact interpretation when the person wakes up. To some, it could be a warning or a reminder for something that might be happening in the future. In short, it’s when the body is resting but the mind is still active.
Even the history states that people paid so much attention to the meaning of their dreams before. To mention Joseph the Dreamer of the Bible. He gave interpretations of his brother’s dream that came true at some point of time. He said he will be above them and that his brothers shall bow before him. The Egyptians even wrote their dreams on papyrus and people with significant dreams are considered blessed and special for they believed it was a message from gods. While early Greeks believed that dreams are the physical visit of their gods to the dreamer to send a heavenly message.
The second refers to hopes, aspirations, wishes or visions for the future. Some people have ordinary dreams while some would dream big time and requires great determination to make it a reality. This dreams are usually of good purpose or something favorable and beneficial in the future.. To dream would mean to desire for something making you a person with direction. This time, it’s VOLUNTARY and you are aware that you’re thinking about it.
