Spiritually, to be conscious of a line marking the perimeter of an object suggests that we are recognizing a duality the existence of two things. To be outlining an idea suggests that we have some basic concepts that are worth exploring. An outline is usually a brief statement of intent, and with practice in dreams we are often able to formulate such a statement. An outline document in dreams can symbolize this. The problem is that when we wake up, unless we are used to recording our dreams, such a statement of intended action can be lost. An outline in dreams is intended to give emphasis or to mark the edge of something. Under these circumstances we should consider our actions in waking life a little more carefully.
