I think you are missing the point entirely.
Following your dreams IS wonderful, but she is saying she never had any dreams because everything was work focused and she never took the time to have a life dream. This has left her feeling like a robot who has simply been doing as she was told -what was expected of her- in the production line of life.

Just want to ask how one will be able to grow plants in a room with black-out curtains covering the windows? I work nights and have considered black-out curtains but hate that they essentially eliminate the use of the window without having to take them up and down every day, which is grossly inconvenient.

I want to know about this cave you stuck in. What’s up with that?

Oh, and for a bonus, I just have to say “Dead Snow”. German horror flick about zombie Nazi’s. C’mon now, who does not like zombie Nazi’s?!

I really don’t know what counts as movies people have “probably not seen”, but I will just post some I think classify:
1. Martyrs – Fantastic French horror movie that will make you squirm something fierce.
2. I heart Huckabees – Great, fun movie that deals with existential issues in a lighthearted manner.
3. Dawn of the Dead (original) – All time favourite movie. Most folks have probably seen this or at least the re-make (which is almost as good), but always worth mentioning.
4. Dogville – A movie staring Nicole Kidman that uses very little make-up, minimum sets, and done in a stage-like manner. Never seen a movie quite like this. Some of the most powerful scenes I have ever seen.
5. Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War – Best war movie ever made. Period.

Ahhhh Return of the Living Dead… such a fantastic and campy movie. The one type of zombie I hope never comes around.
Aaaaand Demons is one of my all time favourite horror movies. Dario Argento is a freaking master.

Fantastic post! There is a great series of books based on his life called “Musashi” by Eiji Yoshikawa. Its out of print the last I checked, but if you can get your hands on the series I highly recommend it.

@Brendan – Those experiences will be there no matter what, but I believe what he is saying is not to become attached or identify with those pleasures. Do not seek them out. Do not become pre-occupied with finding a beautiful place to live, eating wonderful food, pursuing love or lust. Life will present you with these pleasures as they come. Enjoy them while they are in front of you, then move on to the next experience in life without regret or remorse. That’s my take on it anyways.
