Dreams occur in the mind. It's not like you're going anywhere else at night. That means you have to understand that dreams can not affect things in
the real world, they exist only in your mind, which is a good thing as you will soon see when it comes to the issue of morality.
The reason dreams are more vivid than day time imagination is because when you are sleeping you block out external stimuli. This means you must
close your eyes and block out all interference if you expect your day dreams to be anywhere near as vivid as your night dreams.
The other key fact of dreams is how you aren't really aware of it being a dream. But how can you daydream and not realize you are daydreaming? The
answer is to convince yourself that your daydream is real. So if you want to daydream about riding a motorcycle, pretend you really are riding,
feel the wind, the speed, keep reminding yourself that it is real. This seems easy, and in fact all children do it naturally, using pretend and
imagination. Sadly, it is only when we become adults that we are taught that "pretend" suddenly becomes "lying" and a sin. But, remember that
dreams exist only in your mind, so even though you are lying to yourself, you are doing it only to yourself and so you are not harming anyone else in
the process, and thus it is moral even though some religious groups may not think it is. In truth, your ability to imagine and daydream is directly
proportional to your ability to lead yourself on
The best way to convince yourself your dream is real is by stop thinking of it as daydreaming but as something real, stop saying you are imagining
things and believe, even know that these things are real. Because they are real in a mental-dream-like sense, and so all you need to do is take it to
the next level and convince yourself that whatever you are imagining in your mind really is happening to you. Remember that you are the narrator and
the main character, so you have to give a little to get a little. You need to create the scene and the drama, but then let yourself become what your
mind is giving out until you feel like you are in that place and time, ready to do battle to save the world. Give yourself all the emotion and
excitement that television and hollywood tries to sell you on. You don't need a movie screen, you have your mind's eye which is full sensory
experience, unlike television which excludes smell, taste, and touch, leaving you with sight and sound, a 2 dimensional sensory perception for a 6
sensory person (5 senses plus the most important sense: you as the director).
So what is the real goal of this? Well one benefit is you get to do anything you hoped or wished to do, see anything you wanted to see, being limited
only by your own sense of commitment to the dream. And, more importantly than that, you get the sensation of being in control, which is the
Now, eventually you have your fill, and the daydreaming becomes no longer enjoyable for the moment. But this is good, because you don't want to
daydream your whole life away. It's useful when you're at some appointment, sitting in a chair, waiting for something you don't want to do,
pretending to be reading a magazine you aren't interested in; making the boring parts of the day more fun.
