What happens when we dream? We forget who we are because in our dream, we are somebody else in different circumstances – maybe we are on a plane flying to an unknown country with strangers, but that’s what we are. The point is: imagine that you had the power of deciding whether you want to continue your dream or not. Imaginethat you are having a nightmare, a horrifying dream where you are being tortured, you are in pain, your body is diseased, bleeding; would you like that dream to continue? Of course not, but we don’t have a choice. We don’t have a control over our dreams! The question is: would you like to continue living in your dream or would you like to wake up? If I had a choice, I would like to stop living the dream because I know that the dream is just a dream – why would I want to live in a dream? Why spend those moments dreaming, only to wake up to realize that the dream is not real? Why dream of all the good things, only to wake up, happy or disappointed that it was just a dream?
If I have a choice, I would rather wake up and face the reality of my life. Now comesanother and bigger question.It is about our life.Isn’t it like a dream? When it is over,we look back; nothing was permanent,nothing belonged to us. We came without anything and when we leave, we leave without anything. Is it not like a dream?It looks like we have all these people who are our relatives and friends, we have all this wealth which is our property – but at the end, when we wake up from the dream called life and look back, well, nothing is really ours. It is over like a dream.
Therefore, the questionis – do you want to continue living in this dream called life or do you want to wake up and face the reality of who you truly are and what you should truly be doing?
