Why do people dream?

Lhendup (Jadoo), my roomate and I
What is a dream? I try to ask myself whenever I dream a good or a bad dream. Spiritually, we believe that the dreams are means of forecasting the future or signaling us of what has happened somewhere beyond our sight. On the other hand, the scientific rationale is that it is simply a dream and does not have any significance on our daily life. It is dependent on a type of posture while sleeping or just a recollection of what we did during day.
As I heard from the veterans, some of the dreams manifesting bad and good omens are as follows;
1.      Crossing river –believed to fulfill our wishes or reach or destiny.
2.      Walking uphill or in upward direction – considered to be symbolizing of prosperity.
3.      Blazing fire – our lucks are believed to be increasing like the razing fire.
4.      Bear – it is believed to signify triple gem or protective deities.
5.      Wining of games or property.

1.      Crossing Bridge –believed to signify nearing of our death.
2.      Walking downwards – considered to be symbol of regress.
3.      Breaking tooth (teeth) – believed to manifest the arrival of misfortune to life.
4.      Monkey, dog, cat, snake, etc.  – They manifest probable harms from serpent demons and other forms of harming deities.
Some events which never happened in human civilization are said to be signaling the arrival of inevitable death. Dreams of such types are cock transforming into monk, ploughing on the roof, cultivating in front of traditional oven (the small area in front of ovens are traditionally designed to house firewood, for aesthetic reasons, accumulate ashes from oven, etc.) and etc. But contrary to this believe is that may be one in million might have experienced it. I for my last 24 years had neither heard anyone saying that nor did I have those dreams.
Quite ironically, if somebody is seen dying in the dream, it is said that he/she must have over-eaten that night according to our belief.  
I have dreamt about many things at different occasions. I always try to pray not to have appalling dreams. It has sometimes tendency to keep us in apprehension for having heard aforesaid reasons especially of later category. Having brought up in community full of superstitions and godly believes dreams can impinge on how I feel. To be in the state of constant apprehension can spoil our day and it also makes us feel insecure and subsequently it creates hell lot of work loads for our dedicated astrologers.
If I had dreams which I heard to be symbolizing bad omens, I always have inkling in my mind that something wrong might happen the following day and consequently it keeps me alert on every step I take the next day. Religiously, it has been quoted that, “the alert mind is safe forever”, to keep our mind alert and under the control makes me feel safer and at the same time more worried at every instant. 
I often do introspection about my dreams. I have never dreamt of life in Paris, of the technology that is not invented or which I am oblivion of and many things if life which we have no ideas. Then I again ask what dream is all about? Is it all about only things within one’s knowledge? If my this assumption is true, it implies that the active people’s dreams will be more colorful.
 If dreams can convey us of probable happenings, then, why my dream did not alert me about all misfortunes and good lucks I encounter every day.
One night I had a very pleasant dream, fulfilling biggest imaginations and being in elated about it. The night elapsed so fast, the dream was just a momentary and when I woke up, I was dejected. I have not actually, to be frank, have imagined of such reality. I know that it would have been possible in movie or story but, in reality, not possible. I wished, if I could save that dream in memory stick and watch it over and again.
So, my dear friends don’t believe in whatever dream tells you. Just enjoy your life in virtual ways in your dreams. Accomplish the goals which you failed to succeed in reality in dreams. I know that dreams are not reality but still; I am not convinced and it plays its part in my daily life.
I never spent dreamless night for almost one and half years. God bless me!!!
