Today, prophecy has ceased and imitation has ceased, and people use nothing but dreams. (The Book of Zohar)
Dream in the spiritual means a state when a person is at a certain stage that he clearly feels and comprehends.
Let’s say we are now in the studio where our program is being recorded. And then I want to rise above this level to feel more, to know more, to reveal more, to see the connections between all the elements of creation, and to rise above my “animal” so as to feel the world outside myself.
This effort, when I wish to disconnect myself from my present state and ascend to the future, is called a dream, since I disconnect a little from this reality. I want to replace it with the next one, with a higher one. But until I have grasped it, until I really contain it in myself, but only aspire to it, I find myself, as it were, between two stages.
Question: Has the word “dream” has lost its true content in the material world?
Answer: In Kabbalah it has a completely different meaning. A dream is a premonition of a future step when you prepare for it.
