by VENERABLE SUJIVA
Size: 5.5” X 8.25”
We can look at dreams in a number of ways. Firstly, dreams may be considered as fantasies or imaginations of a mind that is ever seeking to escape from a cruel, mundane, lonely world. These illusory concoctions, though relieving for some, can also lead one very far away from reality.
Dreams, in psychology have often been looked upon as a language with which the deeper parts of the mind (which are beyond the reach of the normal conscious awareness) communicate with the conscious mind. In the East, they are also often regarded as the means by which man com-municates with the spirit world. These aspects of communication require more study and research. Dreams, at a more conscious level, are tangible hopes from which may arise in the future what is beneficial, profitable and happy.
It is realism and effort that will determine whether the dream is a hope or a fantasy. And for realism and effort to be present, there must also be a lot of faith that the hope can be realised and mindfulness of real situations ... not to mention courage.
This book is dedicated to those who dare to make the dream their hope the dream which is wholly and truly spiritual; the peace eternal, the utter liberation from suffering!!
