I like measure growth in dreams. It sounds positive – what better yardstick than your dreams? Which ones have you attained? Which ones are still on your list to achieve? How different would life be if countries measured how well they had met their citizens’ dreams? This of course, would be wonderful if we all had the same dreams. However, this is not the case. People’s dreams for a happy life are different in the details although they may share a core – a dream of peace, happiness for their family, clean water, food to eat, enough money to live comfortably, religious and political freedom. How does our country fare in helping its people achieve those core aims? Some seem to do it more successfully than others.
Abundant illusions come in nightly cycles makes me smile. My nightly dreams are certainly abundant and most definitely have the quality of illusions. The question is, are my daytime dreams really any less outlandish sometimes? This little proverb also hints to me the role of sleep in helping us sort through the events of the day. Often my dreams will pinpoint something I’m not seeing clearly. My illusions manifest in glorious technicolor, fully realised and vivid. Of course, when I wake up I see how ridiculous they are. Honest. 🙂
