Reality = A word to describe the physical world.
Have you noticed that upon waking from a dream, you're in a moment of sort of incoherence, uncertainty, transition and as you're trying to analyse
the situation, your mind sets in and says "This is reality".
Its hard for me to explain what I'm getting at but it seems the pre-concieved notion of reality is relating to everything within a narrow frequency
band, everything in the "waking world"... as if awake or asleep were any different. Bodily functions are just a different means to percieve and as
we sleep we enter a new frequency band... but what I find interesting is that everything in the dreamworld and physical world are similar in the
sense of..the people you contact, your relationships with them, and even their physical appearance is that of one you are accustumed to in the waking
world.... yet.. with all those similarities...one does not think of the waking world... its as if it does not exist and its like while in the "dream
world"... we are just as aware of that as being our reality while being as mystified about the waking world. Its as if things were switched but the
energy stayed the same... its just a different..time..place..perspective.
Now if "lucid dreaming" kicks in... I'm not sure what triggers this exactly.. suddenly our "realities" merge into one, and there is ultimate
understanding, but I tend to find... this is where things turn wreckless....
For... if we are learning in the waking world then surely the same goes for the dream world... and the way our learning process works... .. what am I
trying to say here... when you die...things come together, the near death experiences people have where suddenly things become crystal clear...
it would effect with the learning process to have it any other way.
What I'm trying to get at is... perhaps in the dream world we are not concious of the waking in this regard, and just how the "all knowingness"
could affect ones "game of life" (in the physical sense)... it could effect their dream life as well..
An example... I'm learning something very constructive in a dream.. a harsh lesson or maybe something wonderful is going on..you're telling
someone you love them or something... well all of a sudden..lucid dreaming kicks in, and your priorities shift... all of a sudden your flying around
and jumping off cliffs etc etc... You are distracted.
I think this is why lucid dreaming is something that needs to be forced or programmed.. i'd like to be able to develope skill with this.
But anyways.. I think we gotta stop for a minute and think hard about how we define "reality"... and what perspective reality is really referring
And I think... no matter what.. you'd generally come to the same conclusion... that reality..that everything you think you know, is like a fluid..
its harmonious and chaotic yet ordery, and more then that, it is ultimately.. a complete manifestation of imagination and that your tiny blue planet
is floating above the clouds of dream-land.
And another thing... why does ones dreams reflect their waking life? Is it just that it is limited to a perception, as is everthing?
As I do this, talk about the dream world I can't help but wonder if it relfects back like a mirror.. that some where in a different place, I am
writing about the 'waking' world witht he same wonder. Recording it in god's mind.
