Do You Understand the Language of Your UnconsciousMind?
The growth of knowledge gained by the human society in this age of information explosion istruly remarkable. What has been achieved in the 20th century alone is more than what wasacquired during the past 5000 years of human civilization. Modern Science claims to havedeciphered the secrets of Nature. This does sound credible, looking at the way science andtechnology have enabled today¶s man to use the hidden resources and powers of Nature tobestow enormous comforts on human life. However, the complexities of life, its deep roots andeternal linkage with Nature yet remain far beyond the reach of human intellect.The ocean of knowledge traversed by modern age largely pertains to matter-based sentientworld. The secrets of the inner world of life are yet to be uncovered. It is amazing that today¶sman, despite knowing so much about the world around him, knows so little about his own self!The more one tries to know the subtle world, the more enigmatic and mysterious it becomes.Let us take the case of human mind alone. What is it? What is it ¶made up of ¶? How does itfunction? How and why it thinks and feels the way it does? All this remains a mystery and aparadox."How the other creatures communicate?", and "How do they express their needs?", etc, hasbeen studied to a large extent. But, it remains to be known how the human mindcommunicates within its silent world? Research on human mind so far is mainly focused on theconscious mind and brain functions. While a lot more is still required to be known on theseaspects, the inner cores of the unconscious mind appear to be unknowable.People¶s conceptions of the unconscious mind are usually based on sheer imagination, illusions,or guesswork. However, it appears to be a common belief that the unconscious mind expressesitself via the language of dreams. But, we have no sound scientific basis to answer what aredreams? What is their genesis and nature? The enormous live examples of momentousguidelines revealed through dreams, which pose Nature¶s challenge before us, the intelligentbeings.The ¶language¶ of the unconscious mind and the world of dreams is as interesting andhypnotizing, as are its complexities and mysteries. A large number of erudite psychologistsopine that as the complications of human life cannot be resolved without experiencing itsmultiple dimensions in the worldly context, the same way, it would be necessary to experiencethe reflections of the unconscious mind before attempting an analysis of dreams. The savantsof yore seem to have a good hold on this rather occult field of knowledge. Study of dreams wasan established discipline of research and practical application in the ancient times. Scripturesmention of many instances when the seers and sages had made trend-setting predictions andgiven guidance based on the analysis of dreams. The rishis had acquired clear visions of thepast, present, and future through the ¶mirror¶ of dreams. Understanding of the language of dreams was also popular in the ancient times as a therapy.The impact of the unconscious mind in unfolding secret knowledge via the medium of dreamshas been accepted in the modern times too. Significant scientific discoveries of this age alsomaterialized through the inspirations, clues, ideas, or implications, received in the dreams:Neils Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery of electronic orbits within an atom.This knowledge is the basis of the 20th century developments in Atomic Physics and alsoprovided a breakthrough for making hydrogen bomb. It is amazing to note that Bohr wasrevealed the clue of this momentous theory in a dream, which he saw in 1919. Neils¶s mind wasengrossed in investigating the atomic structures and properties those days when he oncedreamt that he was standing right inside the corona of the Sun surrounded by boiling gases andvapors; and many planets were orbiting around him. He also saw that all these planets andstars were ¶tied¶ by thin threads. They cooled down and congregated at a common center; but
