Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality, (Lord Byron, “The Dream”)
Question: People have long been interested in the nature of dreams and dreaming. What is a dream from a spiritual point of view?
Answer: I have been studying Kabbalah for many decades and have not seen anything that coincides with what ordinary people say and think about dreams.
A Kabbalist has spiritual states, which are called VAK—incomplete attainment of the spiritual world. They can be called a dream. But the dream of an ordinary person in our world has nothing to do with this.
Therefore, Kabbalah does not deal with dreams, nor does it interpret dreams. All sorts of things are attributed to it, but in fact, there is nothing of this in Kabbalah.
