The Lake of Dreams......

" Lead me to the Lake of dreams............"

Dreams from time immemorial has been an integral part of our" existence "as well as could be the gateway for defining our "existence"...........
"Dreams"......well what is dream.....?????

-----according to Wikipedia meaning....:
A dream is the experience of envisioned images, sounds, or other sensations during sleep. It occurs in humans, most mammals, and some birds. [1] The events of dreams are often impossible or unlikely to occur in physical reality, and are usually outside the control of the dreamer. The exception is lucid dreaming, in which dreamers realize that they are dreaming, and are sometimes capable of changing their oneiric reality and controlling various aspects of the dream, in which the suspension of disbelief is often broken.[2] Dreamers may experience strong emotions while dreaming. Frightening or upsetting dreams are referred to as nightmares.

"Excerpts from the symbolism of lake of dreams...."

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of lakes in dreams?

Sometimes its best to start off at the basics. Land in dreams features the facts and realities of our life. Lakes are made up of water which symbolizes the feelings within us which (like water)constantly move and flow. So lakes then may represent some issue which you have a little intuitive feeling about.

what they say about dreams....

Viennese Psychiatrist Sigmund Freud first developed the theory about the role of the unconscious on the individual.

Freud believed the dream worked on two levels. A straightforward level showed events in dreams as remembered. However in the latent level objects and actions in the dreams symbolize sexual and aggressive feelings and ideas that are repressed.

So in dreams it protects the sleeper from the effects of a realization of these wishes. The dream taps into the desire for wish fulfillment when the controlling ego is relaxed during sleep.

Freud wrote "All dreams are in a sense dreams of convenience, they help to prolong sleep instead of waking up. Dreams are the guardians of sleep and not its disturbers."


Carl Jung believed a dreams content uses symbolic language. He proposed that a dream expresses collective racial unconscious memories and instincts shared by all people.

These are basic ideas that are themselves symbols. These include the hero, monster, mother, father, mandala, sacrifice and the mask.

Dreams also indicate the way to self actualization. Jungian therapy in fact deals extensively with dreams and fantasies."

You can never deny the importance and impact of dreams--how they influence us, our lives, art, and even music (or how our lives, art and music influences our dreams). Check out Aphex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works, Vol 2" for music directly influenced by many sessions of controled lucid deaming. In the meantime, excellent post and art work!

Dreams..are somthing which i have been trying to understand..but the experience is wonderful..but to be in control in ones dream is beautiful. i do not know if everyone can do that.

But of late, i am not able to control my actions in my dreams because i do not know it is a dream. But, i have travelled far and wild. Flew, died, rose rom death. Things which are humanly impossible. :)

Cosmic... your painting, "Lake of Dreams" is beautiful and mesmerizes me. I love the surreal quality and how everything is identifiably separate, but also united, blended to form one. I also like the little boat and man in the corner of the image. It is quite beautiful imagery and concept.

Thank you for the dedication. That is really sweet. Also, I have always been interested in dreams and dreaming. I've read some of Jung's work and feel a close affinity with his philosophy.

I hope I can write this here without soundind a bit nuts, but my experience while awake feels a little like a dream experience and similar to your painting, "lake of dreams." It is more a feeling than an event, though. I can describe it as an abstract, surreal feeling. It is like being a particular brushstroke and color in a painting...the color blending in and out in relationship to the other colors and brushstrokes, to create a unified image.

Thank you for linking me, too, Cosmic. You also are linked on my blog. I will return again. Thank you.

I like my dreams better is all I can say. Reality is too much subject to all kinds of stupid constraints. ego, body, society.....etc.

navigating the lake of dreams.....certainly easier than navigating the rapids of reality.

some vivaldi violin tracks are like being in a dream I felt. :)
