Does anyone else dream about saving the world?

 Jason (@jasonmctw)8 years, 2 months ago

I don’t mean in a super hero, I dream of a future where the living standard have improved so that every person has a shelter/home, electricity, food, water, education and health care.

I mean I actually dream about these settlements, I travel from settlement to settlement help out, inspecting and maintaining them and just general missons. I walk around in amazement of the beauty of all. In my dream (I know it sounds big headed but I think I invented the systems to do allow people to live this way) there are still problems which my group and I have to deal with arguments and stuff.

Truthfully I really enjoy the dreams but I feel a desire to try and create this world. I am working on a few proto types of the inventions that I saw in my dream.
But at the same time this scares me, I feel an overwhelming sense of responsibility, which can lead to a feeling depressed because I feel im not tying hard enough.

but my question is does everyone/anyone else have these dream is this normal? and its just something people dont talk about in fear of sounding crazy?

I hope if other people are having these dreams they will be on this site :)

yes I have them occasionally. I don’t know if it is “normal” but I doubt it is abnormal in that sense. I’m pretty sure you aren’t crazy, just a good person inside
Its actually a topic that has been on my mind a lot – my ability to positively effect the world.

@avernus, its it strange how your thinking about a subject and then all of a sudden it just pops up of the topic list. its happend to me quite a lot recently.
so do you think we will be albe to positively effect the world?

@plidan, So do you actually dream of living like Jesus?
Jesus, if real was a cool guy in my opinion, not too keen on all modern day follows tho. (Not ment in an offence way.)

I’ve dreamed this in the same form a number of times. I have to find my way to this “settlement” – and it’s usually the same path…straight south, then west a little ways, then a long ways north. A couple times, on that long north stretch, I’ve encountered suffering. Once, it was a population, like a tribe, who tried to get me to stop and help them. I made my way through them, then finally got to the settlement I “felt” like I was leading, and had been leading for a long time. Like you, I felt like I was “responsible” for everything that was celebrated in this settlement. Very odd – I located this post by Google: “dream saving world”…

Would love to really “discuss”…my email is [email protected]. Drop a line – put “Save World” in your subject so I can find it easily through all the trash these days.

interesting are you still having these dreaming? and isnt the internet a wonderful thing that allows us find and talk to people across the world. just a moment of appreciation of the time we live in :)

I think most people do to some degree having these ideas on how they want to leave the world better after they leave it. I think the way HOW a specific person wants to achieve that differs.

For example, some people might do that by having children and raising them the best they can. Others might do that by building a company, creating a non-profits, becoming a monk, or going into the political realm.

I do not think you are crazy and I think the best thing we can all do is to cultivate our skills and becoming better than what we are. That, and living a noble life.
