Ever Dream?

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. However, in my opinion, dreams are the true windows to the mind. Dreams can evaporate in the morning’s routines like mist in the warmth of the sun. But some dreams stay with us, and we will find ourselves during the course of the day thinking about them and wondering as to their meaning.

Dreams, defined by psychoanalytical theory are all forms of wish fulfillment. The dreams represent the desires in our hearts (mind). Even the bad dreams are a form of wish fulfillment—it is our mind’s way of trying to change an outcome or work through an issue.

Oftentimes, in an attempt to understand dreams, people will buy “dream interpretation” books and interpret a dream based upon the definitions of the symbols in the book. Yes, some dream symbols are universal. However, it is the dreamer that holds the interpretation to the meaning of the symbols in the dream. For you see, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and the significance and meaning of the symbols can be unique to the dreamer.

On that note, here is a video of one of my favorite songs by Nightwish, Ever Dream. Seems to fit the post, especially considering that the images are subjected to individual interpretation.
