the part of methat wants to cry

Suppose someone told youthat there was something that spoke to you every night,
that always presented you with a truth about your own life and soul,
that was tailor-made to your individual needs and particular life-story,
and that offered to guide you throughout your lifetime,
and connect you with a source of wisdom far beyond yourself.
And, furthermore, suppose that all of this was absolutely free.
Naturally you would be astonished that something like this existed.Yet this is exactly the way it is with our dreams. ~ John A. Sanford (1975), Dreams and Healing, Paulist Press, NY
Jung observed that dreams perform restorative, corrective, compensatory, prophetic, and developmental roles in our psyche; that to attend to our dreams is to attend to the cry of the soul. ~ From The Art of Dreaming by Jill Mellick (Conari Press, 2001)
