Activity/Action (Elements of Dreams) #AtoZChallenge
Dreams are typically busy. We are always doing something or going some place in our dreams. In fact there is usually action going on all around us much like in waking life. Since dreams are essentially a sort of reflection of our waking life it only makes sense that the primary component of dreaming is action. The activities with which we are involved in our dreams as well as those activities going on around us are frequently illogical or seem to have no motivation or goal, but they seem to make total sense to us in our dreams.
Sometimes we might find ourselves doing one thing and then suddenly doing another with no reasonable explanation as to why things changed. In other instances we might find ourselves hindered from completing the activity we have been doing which can lead to a certain frustration. We might start out the dream memory with specific intent and then everything seems to fall apart or get deterred. We are late for our intended dream appointments or we can't find our way only to wander in confusion until we waken.
What types of activities do you typically find yourself doing in your dreams? What keeps you from reaching your goals? Would you consider most of your dreams to be active or passive?
