Life Is But A Dream

 


 I’ve often wondered if there is some sort of cosmic idea fairy floating around just waiting to wave her magic wand and pop an idea into the right mind to manifest it. Even Albert Einstein admitted had he not come up with his theory of relativity, someone else would have because it was an idea whose time had come.  Interesting thought…So whose idea was it, his… or something greater than himself he had managed to tune into?  Not that Einstein wasn’t a brilliant man, he most certainly was.  It was that very brilliance that made him a prime candidate to even manifest the thought in the first place.  But if it was an idea that others could have tapped into just the same, where did it come from?

"All of our thoughts are working together to create what we experience as our physical world; The thoughts that are dominant create the projection."

  For me, the best ideas come from the depths of sleep.  Just before awakening fully, I can hear the words, the sounds and the songs, and feel the feelings of my dreams.  The more I pay attention to them, the clearer they become. If I fall back to sleep, failing to acknowledge the messages, they disappear into the abyss of unrecognized dreams.   It is consciousness itself saying, “If you are not going to listen, I am going to become harder for you to hear.”  Maybe someone else will hear the messages that were made available to me, had I bothered to listen. 

  The fact is, our physical lives are actually a projection of our thoughts. The waking dream, so to speak… Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream… merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream…Catchy isn’t it?  Even science is beginning to recognize the truth in this, as cited in this recent article published by a group of scientists at Boston's Harvard Medical School entitled "Dreams are real, say scientists"  https://lnkd.in/d8cpftH ...  We are like a giant matrix.  All of our thoughts are working together to create what we experience as our physical world. The thoughts that are dominant create the projection. We are all in this together, so why not help each other create a better dream.

  I suppose we could start by paying more attention to the way we treat each other, not only by our actions, but also our thoughts and our words.  The two carry a great deal of energy. Once that thought crosses the barrier into the spoken word there is no taking it back. If we can shift the focus at the point of thought, and stop the damaging words from leaving our lips, we will be doing ourselves and the world around us a huge service.  We have all heard it said never to judge someone unless you have walked a mile in their shoes.  But even if you have, why judge at all? The only one who has the authority to do that is God, and I don’t think he’s hiring.

  All situations present themselves as an opportunity to learn, especially the bad ones due to their jarring nature.  They shake us to the core and move us into action.  Hopefully, those actions are to help improve the situation, rather than pointing the finger of blame.  I think it was Abraham Lincoln that said, “Love your enemies just in case your friends turn out to be bastards.”  Unfortunately, sometimes that turns out to be true.

Right on Louise Smith...sounds like you and I have endured some sleepless nights;-) I find I dream and retain the memory of such much more often when I am working on something creative or working out something emotionally distressing...That seems seems to be the channel I am most "tuned" into...

"Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory will swell when again touched as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature." Thanks Chas Wyatt I needed that reminder desperately!

I think that when you first wake with those great ideas, it's because you've had a restful sleep allowing a productive mindset. This used to happen to me a lot when I was a high school teacher of Japanese . I was constantly in need of new ideas for lesson strategies, tasks, excursions and testing materials. I had to write my own Year, Semester, Term, Week and Daily lesson plans for up to 5 year levels. I had to write 3 or 4 sets of new tests for each year level 4 times a year. So I used to have a pen and paper next to my bed to write down those ideas ensuring they weren't lost on second waking if I went back to sleep. Now I am a psychologist in my own private practice I don't need to do this and find I don't dream nearly as much. regardz Louise

#2 Thank you both Donna-Luisa Eversley and Julie Hickman for commenting...Sometimes those lessons come hard and fast leaving us blindsided...Not much time to think, so we react...I struggle with this one myself...trying to learn to take pause more and react less.
