Senoi Dreamers. Why dreaming matters.
In 1935, anthropologist Kilton Stewart stumbled upon a singular tribe living in the mountains of Malaysia. They were called the Senoi.

Their culture had no history of violence or crime. And while they lived amidst other tribes, some active headhunters and extremely violent, these tribes gave the Senoi a wide berth; they believed the Senoi practiced a powerful magic. A magic that affected the physical world through skillful dreams.

While children in most cultures are taught to ignore their dreams, the Senoi, like the aborigines of Australia, believe dreams are a landscape one must learn and navigate to truly understand the nature of life. During an average lifespan we spend 8 years of our life dreaming. Imagine living 8 years in a foreign country and never picking up the customs, language, or even the layout of the land; having only theories and little experience.

When children awake from nightmares, a dream challenged society may tell them “don’t worry, it was only a dream”, while the Senoi say, “you did it wrong, here is what you must do…”

And there are principles the Senoi child learns about dreams. Try them out, interesting things may begin to happen:

• Never run away from danger in a dream. Confront it and conquer it if necessary. If you are wounded you have made your enemy use up part of its power, if you are killed, become reborn stronger

• Call upon dream friends if you need help. Fight by yourself until they arrive. (Make dream friends! Ask friendly figures to be your guides, share things in your dreams, e.g. food)

• A friend that acts aggressively toward you in a dream is not a friend it is an enemy wearing the mask of a friend

• After you have subdued or fought a dream opponent, make it give you a gift… something beautiful (a song, poem) or useful; bargain only if necessary

• Advance toward pleasure in dreams; dream morality is not waking morality

• Achieve positive outcomes… fly someplace, make love with someone, do battle; act rather than react

• If you act aggressively toward a friend or refuse to cooperate go out of your way to express friendship or cooperation during waking

A Special Note on Falling…
Of course, the principles weren’t so baldly presented. The best way to start navigating dreams is to start learning how to communicate with the imagination. So a principle would be bettered conveyed like this:

“You must relax and enjoy yourself when you fall in a dream. Falling is the quickest way to get in contact with the powers of the spirit world, the powers laid open to you through your dreams. Soon, when you have a falling dream, you will remember what I am saying, and as you do, you will feel that you are travelling to the source of the power which has caused you to fall.”

“The falling spirits love you. They are attracting you to their land, and you have but to relax and to remain asleep in order to come to grips with them. When you meet them, you may be frightened of their terrific power, but go on. When you think you are dying in a dream, you are only receiving the powers of the other world, your own spiritual power which has been turned against you and which now wishes to become one with you if you will accept it.”

Kids in this culture are taught to think a certain way; this way being that you must face risks and challenges. If you are able to act in such a way in a dream, don't you think they'll be able to do so in real life? Don't you think that if their subconscious will ask "friendly strangers" for help, reaching out to other people, that they will be able to do the same in wake? This will change the world.

Re: Senoi Dreamers. Why dreaming matters.
Dreams are nothing more than brain processing. I guess if I had a dream to shoot someone - what, I should do it? Dreams are based on day residue data - if you live peacefully you should dream peacefully. If you live is BS world, your dreams are going to be BS.
