I ask myself and also the audience, why dream?

What is the purpose of a dream and how do you know you have one?

Dreams are many things, scientifically it's rapid eye movement during sleep; of conscious, unconscious, and subconscious images composed together, but it is also something much bigger than that.

A dream, to have a dream is to have a goal mixed with a vision. You have to be in tune with yourself and the world in order to have an effective dream. Think of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, Dr. King vision was for racial inclusiveness and unity, although America is till struggling with this, his dream came true. Why, because he was in tune with himself and the world. Dr. King saw the injustice of the Jim Crowe laws and dreamt a vision that became an anecdote for a problem he saw in his community.

Ultimately, our dreams are our deepest desires and aspirations not only for ourselves but for the world. To dream is to have a vision and to have a vision is to see into the future. A future that you create in your mind that has the possibility to become reality ONLY if you make it. So I ask Why dream? We dream to fulfill our civil duty to the human race, we dream to create a better reality, we dream because it is the innate human gift that allows us to predict our future. To dream is to live, to have one is to have a purpose.

So what is your dream/ purpose?
