Last night, before I went to sleep, I took out several pages of goals I've written up during the last few months. I generally draw a triangle and label each corner--one for personal, one career, one spiritual--and then just write all over it. I thought about what I'd already achieved and what I still want to work on. I postulated that I wanted my dream space to be one in which my inner self actively worked on achieving goals.
Unfortunately, I've only been sleeping five or so hours a night for the past few nights, so last night I don't even think I made it to REM sleep. So I have no dreams to report. I may have something come up during a nap if I take one, and if so I'll add an edit.
Meanwhile, I'll put here some cool quotes I read yesterday about dream life from The Unknown Reality:
Cellular life is affected by your dreams. Healings can take place in the dream state, where events at another order of existence alter the cells themselves.
The dream world is not a formless, haphazard, semiconstruction. It does not exist in bulk, but it does exist in form. This is not a contradiction nor a distortion. The true complexity and importance of the dream world as an independent field of existence has not yet been impressed upon you. Yet while your world and the dream world are basically independent, they still exert pressures and influences, one upon the other.
From the chaotic bed of your dreams springs your ordered daily organized action.
Private reality is like a finished product, rising out of the immense productivity that occurs in the dreaming condition.
