Week 15 – Hidden Meaning Of Dreams

Dreams are great portal to our inner self, deepest emotion, creativity and to the unknown. The thoughts and feelings which were being neglected or suppressed in waking state are constantly exposed in the dreams. For some people, thoughts and feelings are reflected directly to them, but for others, thoughts and feelings are presented in symbolic forms or in disguises.

I have a tendency to speak indirectly. Not all the time, but in some occasions when I would like to get myself something or ask somebody for help. Like, when I’m getting thirsty and want to have a drink, instead of saying directly to my friend that I need a drink, I would ask, “Are you thirsty?” or say something like, “Why isn’t here any vending machine?” Or in situation like when I was being asked about subject regarded to my own feelings or deepest thoughts, I may not tell a straight forward answer. I have to wander off the subject, and reveal the answer piece by piece. Most of the time, people are still wondering the meaning of my answer. I’m neither hiding any truth nor being dishonest, in fact, this is the way how I like to communicate with people.

Like in the dreams. Images and words we see in the dream world don’t exactly mean what they mean. The true meaning is well hidden. We have to uncover it, like unfolding the layers of the onions. Layer by layer. Piece by piece. Once we peel off all the layers, we see the core. Then, we start to realize how things work and why things are hidden in that way, and finally, we decipher the meaning of our own dreams. Once we understand the dream world, we will understand ourselves in a more complete form.

Have a nice weekend, everyone! 😀

  4. Hmm. It includes a deep message. Dreams reflect our real thought. I read a book written by Freud.

    • I read a book written by Freud, which is “Interpretation of Dreams” I hadn’t finished reading the whole book, but the part which most impressed me was when he mentioned about dreams as disguised fulfillment of repressed wishes. 😀

  7. Well said! =) And great photo too…

    I remembered my husband’s friend. He said, if you want to be a good photographer. Take a picture of everything. If your wife brought veggies from the market, take a picture of them. Then, I saw your picture of onions. lol

  12. Great prose to go with the pic.
    Not sure why, but something about the pic transfixed me. I’ve spent the last several minutes just staring at it…
    Well Done!

  13. We humans are so complex aren’t we. Lovely onion photo. We had lots of red & brown onions from our veggie garden this season.

  14. Love the composition and focus on your photograph! I’m often not direct in communicating too! I think I started it to see if people would take the time to figure out what I meant. Dreams are intriguing. I love having them and trying to decifer them! Hope you have a great week!
