What’s Behind those Weird Dreams?

Posted | 0 comments

I want to preempt this blog post by disclosing that I am as ‘unspiritual’ as they get.

Remember being 17 and sharing everything with your girlfriends? First kisses, bad dates, fights with your boyfriend? Chances are, you talked about everything- even those things that boyfriend wouldn’t be too pleased to hear you sharing. Then you finished school, and you began dating people more seriously. For every guy you went out with, there was a subsequent conversation with that same best friend, or maybe a new one, about the date, his appearance and personality, what...
