The question is, if one is supposed to get the answers of a nature, where it is not the arbitrary decision, but rather the intuitive knowledge, the data of the information environment, which keeps the clues unknown until entering a dream, that is necessary, why be proactive in a dream?
These situations include «passive contemplation», i.e. the witness technique primarily used when one is going to extract the information about somebody else.
For example, your dream task is an attempt to narrow down the choices or to make a decision, and one should see the intuitive options, which means the ratio should be inactive. In this case, there’s no need to wake up in a dream, for as soon as one gains awareness, rational thinking will be turned on, and the current dream world will be maintained by one’s own recourses and thoughts.
