Student Comment: When you mention magic and the development of souls towards spirituality, what came to mind was the magic of dreams, which gives you messages. And I understand that the message in a dream, coming from the Atman, its goal is to help you on your way. But I do have a problem with the interpretation of the dream because its the ego or the conscious mind that's trying to interpret it.
Dream interpretation has always been an important pillar in spirituality, from the ancient practice of Swapna Yoga, to figures in the Abrahamic religions such as Joseph, who interpreted the dreams of the pharaoh. "But it has been lost in the modern age?or it has been re-found with the agendas of psychoanalysis, etc, that have not fully opened to the spiritual dimension, which is the source of the dream." So now we have many different types of dream analysis, including Freudian, Jungian, Lacanian, etc, which will all give different and often accurate interpretations, but these methods cannot take the dream to its inner-most meaning. So it is imperative that we have a trusted spiritual guide with whom we can deeply explore both the unconscious mind and the spiritual message of the Atman.
