involuntary sexual nightmares/dreams – females
@beyond I mean when you feel love towards someone it is romantic, when you feel raw passion towards someone it feels animalistic..somehow i linked that to evil; but that is also because you can feel that towards someone you are not in a relationship with even if you already have another relationship you can feel it towards any other person. I don’t think it is a moral way to act on raw passion compared to love for someone:S…so i judged it as being evil and when raw passion go’s further people do horrible things, and that is not because they love the other person, it is really another way of feeling towards someone…
@manimal I so much do understand what you are saying, part of me agree’s with it, but part of me believes i need to restrain and train and evolve myself into a better human being by behaving morally acceptable, while in fact my core emotions perhaps are just not that in tune with moral behavior. I have two different sides, the animalistic and moral side, but maybe i should have good and bad or maybe i should have no judgment about it at all..
For example if someone does something that is unjust you can either make a fuzz of it, scream, react on it, find someone else to do that for you or run away< OR you could just suffer in silence……..well that is the thing that bothers me constantly, my evolving behavior tells me to suffer in silence while my animalistic behavior wants to protest against it..i would even come to think that my repressed me is a protection mechanism, while my moral me is the one suffering in silence………exactly what you say when you describe the feeling of fear, just feeling the fear not acting at all just stay frozen and feel the fear burning along it is just insane………….WHY have i told myself to feel the burn and keep on burning it is strange………i dont think it is healthy..it is some form of learned helplessness, because when you act upon it, it becomes animalistic, but maybe that is a good thing..
well the root of it all does come from culture, civilizations, religion, dogma's, we learned to act a certain way because some form of behavior is seen as good and the other is seen as bad. And the good behavior is rewarded while the bad behavior is punished. Now when you repress feelings, that clearly is not the way to go, because it turns out to attract exactly what you don't want in life. But being moral, you can not just act upon your first instincts, or can you?? Is there a life to live when people act on their first impulses, without making life a chaos. For example, discipline, intelligence and control are things learned in civilization, not really something animalistic. To teach oneself discipline is some form of cruelty against ones nature. Yet the lack of discipline results into laziness, is that a judgment of a bad thing because it is something we as a society dont see as a positive characteristic of human kind. Yet perhaps animals do have discipline and some form of intuition but it comes natural to them, but i come to feel that discipline is something you do without wanting to do it at the core of your being. It is a form of molding yourself into something else, something more refined.
I don't understand it, animals do have a clear structure of how their life is, and it works in tune with nature without needless harm right?, yet people have this learned civilization that go's against the core of nature to prevent chaos, a clash between cultural values and natural instincts..to find ourselves in our true nature should we evolve ourselves by being more culturally distinct and moral (feelings of love, compassion, altruism, conscious, intelligence) or should we evolve ourselves by going to our roots in nature (feelings of passion, anger, fear, intuition/instinct)? OR is going back to our roots in nature the same as going back to inner peace (feelings of love, intuition)..with other words, do animals have inner peace and do they evolve spiritually or is it merely something humans strive for?
As a Sagittarius, it is supposedly very natural to me to want to ascend from my animal nature. To find that higher state of being, or to be more human, per say. Hence the symbolism of a horse that is half man. We are striving to become more than animal, and find higher forms of reasoning and better forms of behavior.
I think everyone has that desire in some way. It is part of us though, our animal nature. We still hunger for food because our body needs the sustenance. Where would you be without that hunger? Would eating be the same?
It is better to embrace who we are truly, because we are who we are. You cannot run from yourself.
It is possible to learn how to control your mind, and choose every thought that goes into your brain. I can’t do it, though I believe many people can and do. That is something worth learning.
Eliminating desires is a tricky thing, because when you have no desires, what’s left? Perhaps there would be peace and tranquility. That’s not so bad really. But at this point you have to wonder where is life headed? It would not matter so much what happens any more. It would simply be a passive existence. This is a very deep and masterful way of living, but is it really something you would choose?
This life gives you many paths that you can take, and they all lead to enlightenment. Don’t forget your morals, but don’t forget that God gave us desires either.
Animals have their own way of life. They are also intelligent, but they’re perception of the world is very different. Their minds are different. I would say that we humans have an ability to be very moral. Accepting to be that way is your choice, and choosing otherwise may have consequences. But we shouldn’t forget that we have instincts like any other animal, and that these instincts are very real and shouldn’t be simply ignored. Feelings are important too . They guide us, and come from the soul. Your words are of the mind. We should always seek to evolve. And have no doubt that as a society we are constantly evolving. Always follow your heart, Dreamer.
My thoughts about the dreams that are based off your fears, are that they are trying to show you how not to be afraid. You have already seen your fears now and are stronger still. I know it may be a painful memory, though now you know that your alright even though you had a bad experience. This is part of life, learning not to fear so much. Acceptance is a much better route. Even if it makes you feel bad. You are loved Dreamer, don’t forget yourself. Be proud of who you are, and eat cheese! :P
@heartbeat, Morals are subjective. It’s just a made up concept. There are no objective morals whatsoever, what is moral and what isn’t is an individual thing. And here’s the thing most people fail to understand about morals, you can rationalize them from anything, you can justify it however you want. Morals can be conjured with no basis in reality, because morals are just very firm opinions.
Suffering in silence isn’t evolution, it’s a slowly working poison. It’s more like devolution.
There is no such thing as being moral or being immoral, because everyone follows their own morals. Morals have only one purpose, and that is to assert and justify desires.
Cultural values are just a result of manipulative domestication of humans.
That’s where all -isms, religions/belief systems, trends, and so on come from. They’re all just meant to sway people, and unite them like an ant hill serving the interests of one person only. The ruler.
Look, we’re born individualists. We’re born in our optimized natural state of flow and peace, but our immersion in society (and religions and such shit) distorts our minds, turns us into something we’re not. And most people never realize that this is not what they really are, and that this is what’s causing all their agony.
Like I said earlier, there’s a lot of glorified and romanticized shit about teachings and beliefs, but they are nothing more than that.
Humans in their neutral optimized state are not savage, that’s just the same kind of bullshit they make up to keep people away from this. Out of fear. Demonize that which you want people to stay away from, and they will stay away from it, that’s the principle at work here.
Your purpose is not to sacrifice yourself for some made up bullshit.
If life isn’t good, you’re doing things wrong.
It’s like one of those toys which consist of a box with holes of various shapes in it, and blocks matching these shapes. What you’re doing is you’re trying to fit these blocks into a hole where none of them fits, a hole that was not originally there, that isn’t supposed to be there. None of the blocks will ever fit, no matter how hard you try to force them through.
You’re fighting a pointless battle which cannot ever be won. And you’re fighting on the aggressor team, attacking something completely innocent.
You say you want to avoid destructive desires, but you’re clearly run by this very destructive desire.
As an awnser to your qeustion , Im a man , and I have these kind of nightmares . These nightmares are very excruciating i can barley handle this . I just woke up from one they happen every night . I think when I was younger I got date raped , sleeping in farout places.
Well, my dears, I cannot recall ever having these sort of dreams. Perhaps it’s because in my dreams, I am always sporting a baseball bat in my hand. Who would dare risk their lives by trying to harm mine? :P
I do hope you find peace in your dreams, Dreamer :o)
