discussion notes

  • How to make progress towards your dreams ?

  • Interpreting your dreams

    • Take the collaborative approach.

      • Have someone ask you questions about it so that you can understand it better.
    • Meaningful dreams vs Entertainment dreams

    • Dream Recall: Write them down in the very moment - because your might not remember them later.

    • Experiment: Does your attire during sleep (sleeping in underwear vs in shorts) affect your dreams?

  • Is it better to be innocent and have everyone think you are guilty or compromise, be guilty and have everyone think you are innocent.

  • Is it better to oppose evil (and possible be killed) or comprosie to do more good in long term.

    • If you compromise you are killing the very thing that can stand up to evil? i.e. if you compromise you die spiritually else you only die physically.
