"There has always been a dream. Everything is still the dream. All that we call creation and Creator is the dream. The dream continues to dream us and to dream itself. Before anyone or anything was, there was a dream, and this dream continued to dream itself until the chaos within the dream became aware of itself. Once the awareness knew that it was, there was a perspective for other aspects of the dream to comprehend itself. One of the emerging dream energies, or "complexes", that came from the chaos of the dream and still remains in the dream as a way for the dream to recognize itself, is called "human beings". Human beings required a way to have perspective and reference, and because of this, another energy emerged from the dream, and this is known today as "time". It is from the two energies of dream and time that the third was given birth to, and that third one is known as the "dream time". Dream time is also known as "mind", which is by nature luminescent and pure. And the dream time mind is reflected by the emptiness of awareness."
....which is the reason why Western psychological norms would never work for Native Americans.
