When I was a kid, it was always about nature. I spent hours staring at the trees, the clouds, the birds, the flowers, the streams, the grass, the dirt, the mountains, the desert. All of it was a beautiful, mesmerizing, and wondrous world that I longed to see, explore, and experience.
And now I can’t even get a glimpse of it. The natural world can be so beautiful, and yet so intimidating. Our desire to explore it, learn more about it, and live in it is something that seems to go against our natural inclination. We’ve been conditioned to think that we need to use the natural world to explore the natural world.
I think a lot of this is to do with the fact that so much of nature we live in are natural. We think that we don’t need to see and experience it so we don’t feel the need to. I’m not talking about things like mountains, deserts, streams, rivers, or lakes.
Some of you reading this will be familiar with the term “nature”. It’s the way in which we define our everyday experience. It’s what we call the natural world because it’s so commonplace and so hard to explain to non-naturalists. But there is another aspect to nature that is less commonly discussed but actually is an important part of it: dreams.
Dreams are the only way we get to experience the natural world as it actually is. We dont need to make it up to see it, but there are certain dream experiences that are easier to relate to. A dream for example, is a dream that happens before you actually wake up. Dreams are a great way to explore your unconscious and the world around you. I had a dream about a bird in the trees and I started to play in the grass.
I think this is what happens when you’re a student and you’re going to a new school, you’re in a new room with new friends and everything looks so different from back home, and you’re just so hungry for new adventures. Dreams are one way we can explore our unconscious and get away from the everyday routine and responsibilities of our reality.
It is hard to stay away from your own dreams, because when youre in a different place you feel like you’re the only one who is paying attention. So you may look up in the sky and wonder where that bird is or what it’s doing, you may feel that you need to keep your eyes glued to the ground because you’re the only one who is paying attention.
It is true that to actually be able to live out your dreams you have to be present, but you can also have a dream journal to keep track of your thoughts and feelings. As I mentioned before, I use a journal to write in my dreams, and that is great because I can always be writing in the middle of a dream and it doesn’t matter if you’re awake or asleep.
So why not have a journal to help you write in your dreams? Dreams are like a dream journal because they are not written down. What you dream about becomes as real as anything else you can remember. You can’t really erase your dreams, but if you have some time on your hands, you can get some writing done in your journal.
Dreams are one of the reasons we’re so good at remembering dreams. Because you only remember things that are “real,” you can write your dreams down and remember important details. You can also jot down thoughts and feelings about your dreams. For example, I dream of a tree, and I write down how it makes me feel. Then I write down a description of the tree in my dream, and I think about how it makes me feel.
