Q. If a wandering mind is an unhappy mind then do the dreams we have when we sleep make us unhappy?
A. Your unhappy mind when you are awake, not always, but sometimes can turn into your unhappy dreams during your sleep because both your unhappy mind during the day time and your dreams are the actions of your one mind. That is why people with trauma suffer from nightmares during their sleep. This is a good example which shows that we are deluded by illusions. Your dreams, whether good or bad, are just illusions. Leave them alone. If you feel flattered or discouraged by them, it means that you are deluded by them one more time. If you practise Zen meditation hard, you can get mental strength to realise the fact that you are dreaming when you dream and therefore control your dreams.
