THE VOICE OF FREEDOM: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

Issues of Freedom are present in all dreams either by their explicit presence or by their implied absence. Freedom is fundamental to our way of life, yet our world is filled with injustice.

Our dreams mirror our daily struggle for dignity and our inalienable rights by juxtaposing issues of freedom with restriction; potential with limitation; liberation with captivity.

YOUR MISSION SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT….

Write in a stream of consciousness on behalf of dream images who have had no voice until now. Lament their lack of freedom and autonomy. Reveal unspoken feelings.

Write in a stream of consciousness on behalf of the dream images that hold a beacon light of hope in the dream. What is the soul force that will lead the dreamer to personal freedom and liberty?

Let the dream come as a great beacon light of hope to millions of dreamers seared in the flames of perplexing and sometimes fearful paradox. Let the awakening to joyous daybreak create an end to the long night of our self imposed captivity. The life of the dreamer is still sadly crippled by the manacles of self denial. In our dreams we often feel ourselves to be an exile in our own land. But all dreamers are guaranteed the unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
