The Truth Of Dreams:

Hold fast to dreams,for if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird,that can not fly.”

                                                                                                              (Langstone Hughes)

Dreams are the most crucial part of life. Everybody has dreams without knowing the reason behind their occurrence. This is an involuntary phenomenon. Usually, we have dreams when we get sleep, but sometimes we have dreams with our widely opened eyes.
Dreams can be freaky, prophetic, adventurous,sensational and nightmares. Some dreams provide relief and solution to our problems; on the other hand,some dreams can be extremely tormented. Tormented dreams aggravate tension and cause insomnia. What we suppress during the day becomes our dream. Dreams are, in fact, the language of our suppressed aspirations and fears. Dreams reflect our ambitions and make us more determined and contemplated. Dreaming is totally a mental process and is proved to be a true interpreter of ourselves. Great dreams bring great achievements and remarkable success in our lives and make us exemplary and everlasting. These help us in achieving out of reach things. Orison Swett Marden has said:

“All men who have achieved great things,have been great dreamers”

Dreams Increase Wisdom:

Dreams increase wisdom and arise curiosity. Man is normally in the habit of committing mistakes and this all is quite natural. But when we do something wrong the voice of our conscience turned into our dreams, which does not let us to sleep. In this way,we look back and analyze our mistakes or deeds and then our curiousity leads us towards something new and constructive. We become the wisest people, when we are having great dreams and are adamant to meet them. Dreams infuse unique thinkings in us. We have to confront a lot of problems and dreams provide us sensible solution to these problems. Eleanor Roosevelt has rightly said:

                     “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”

Dreams enhance our reasoning level because while dreaming our mind is constantly working. In this process,we are seeing those things that we want to do or to get and in dreams we try to seek  those methodologies and techniques by which we can acquire them. This mental working increase our wisdom and make us more genius.

Dreams Are An Escape from Reality:

Reality is always bitter and painful and this is human nature to shun reality or to avoid it at all costs. In this case our dreams work as defense mechanism, they allow the mind to go to anywhere it desires. In dreams we see whatever we want to see. Dreaming is always a pleasant sensation, but it can also be rough in some cases. Dreams are not physical and exist only in our minds and these are a good source to shun reality in order to live happily. Things become as we think about them, this all depends upon our observation and perception. According to L.M Montgomery:

                                               “You may tire of reality but you never tire of dreams”

Death is a great reality of life and we all feel frightened when we think about it. We see death with great terror and it affects us badly. Therefore, we often see in dreams earthquakes, famine diseases, lightening or thundering and enormous storms that have engulfed countless lives. Our financial and social issues also haunt us in our dreams. But sometimes dreams embellish our life with great beauty and satisfaction. We feel ourselves in a fairy land and, we see beautiful lakes, oceans, waterfalls and greenery. We see that we are living in a castle and are having many slaves. Sometimes even we become king and get remarkable happiness. We forget all sorrows and cares of our real life and our imaginary world seem to us our most beautiful possession. In this imaginary world we get rid prison of this cruel world for a while and become rulers of our own realm. In sensational dreams everything looks rather different and more appealing. We feel ourselves flying in the air and doing outstanding things.

In dreams we can say each and everything that in real life we can never say. Dreams are actually the expression of our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we love a person fiercely and we can never express it, but this expression of love is quite easy in dreams. In dreamy world we tell our dear ones that how much we love them and what we think about them. It has widely been observed that this expression of love is pretty difficult in real life. Therefore,it will not be wrong to say that dreams reduce the torture of reality and bring happiness to us.

Dreams Provide Relief To Stress:

Life is full of hustle and bustle, furry and demands. External circumstances cause stress and this stress is usually known an overwhelming response to events and happenings. It upsets the balance of a person and makes life chaotic. Today we have to do many activities at the same time. We have to think about our financial problems,we get worried about our next promotion. We have to bear the brunt of our boss. Sometimes we can not achieve our well-deserved career goals. Dreams are the best substitute of this stress. Dreams decrease the pain of our expectations and thinkings or build positivity in us. Diseases afflict many people and become a major cause of life stress for them. Family disputes, attitudes of relatives, studies and poor health conditions are also irritative. We get tensed and depressed, this depression ultimately turned into dream. We suppose many beautiful things by ourselves. Dreams are actually a fight between our conscious and subconscious. They increase our self-knowledge and provide us information or insight.

All our worries fade away in our dreamy world. In this world we can shed tears without any fear, we can smile or express ourselves freely and we can get whatever we want. In fact, in dreams we have everything of our choice around us, and we mostly feel ourselves very satisfied and happy. Dreams do not let stress to get on our nerves or get us down. High and positive dreams can be the best solution of releasing tension.

To sum up the whole discussion, I would like to say that we all our slaves of our dreams because these are the true portrayal of our thinking and wishes. These become the voice of our suppressed desires and compelled us to go head. Dreams bind the whole humanity together, because everyone has dreams without any distinction. We do not have any control over this phenomenon. Our dreams are our driving force that pushes us to express ourselves. I have a firm belief that in this cruel world dreams provide a great soothing relief and urge a man to think about bright future. Nightmares are also proved constructive because they increase our curiousity and give us a remarkable courage for exploring and investigating the truths of life. And they provide knowledge about an invisible world and make it visible beautifully to us. Prophetic dreams deal with spiritual sphere of our life and enhance it incredibly. Adventurous dreams bring calm and excitement in our life. On the whole we can say that dreams are our best friends because they deal with each and every secret of our life

                                         “Dreams are like stars…..you may never touch them

                                         But if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny”
