The wanderings of Odysseus or Sinbad represent the very fundamental desire of human beings to search, learn, and grow. Jung talks about the “hero’s midnight travel at sea.” Such a dream is often an indication that the dreamer has no clear direction and no concrete goal. Also, such dreaming could pose the question of how well you control your feelings or how much you are being driven by them, and particularly by your fears. Usually this is a matter of finding the right balance between chaos and order, and remaining true to yourself.
Getting to one’s goal is going to be difﬁcult and lengthy.
