So, wait… Are you saying I don’t have to interpret my dreams to do dreamwork?

Short answer: yes.

Longer answer: Go to the dreamwork section of your local esoteric bookstore. There you will find any number of books on dreamwork. Most, if not all focus on interpretation of some kind. But really?! No. You do not have to do interpretation to do dreamwork. You only need to work with dreams somehow. Yet a lot of books focus on interpretation as it sells. People like to know what’s going on in their minds with dreams so they turn to these books. In the end I think you will find a lot are simply about the same search for meaning we all apparently struggle with.

In the end is searching for meaning making you happy? Sometimes yes. Sometimes no. I’d say you can work with your dreams just as happily without searching for meaning all the time.
