In this Sedra we begin reading about dreams — Josef’s dreams. Dreaming is a truly spiritual state. When we are asleep our soul rises to higher states of consciousness, substantially out of our body — in he higher realms. Dreams is our imperfect recollection of the soul’s journey and its digestion of our life’s circumstances through the prism of higher insight. But since the soul was out of body, we can only begin to recognize this imperfectly.
