We are often taught, that reality is this physical world, the physical Universe that we reside in. I will not argue, that reality is also, the world
that surrounds us. However, what is important to note, as a human within the fabric of reality, we too posses our own personal reality.
It is the reality of the self, and it exists when we exist, and are conscious of ourselves as existing as our self. When you move through the fabric
of time and space, and cascade across the chronological order of life and embark on the final destination of death, you will know in that time, that
reality wasn't just the outside world, it was also you.
Our fight/flight survival drive that steers us to safety in the face of danger, protecting us from moments that could be us meeting an untimely fate,
is a response to the preservation of your reality. This reality of self is very sacred in my opinion. That each person who possesses this state of
self-realization is in their own right, an important part of the greater fabric.
What is interesting to note, as a reality system, we also have a wide variety of entertaining sub-realities that we exist in. I would like to
introduce you to some of the worlds of which you create when you sleep at night.
We call these worlds dreams. But imagine if you will, that these dreams are not just some random cascading spasm of sub-conscious thought, but
infact, they are also a part of who you are, and what you are. That like this reality, your dreams take on a psuedo-personal reality of your
What if I were to tell you, that you life would consist of conscious moments and in these conscious moments, you would accumulate through the years a
summation of total conscious self between your birth, and your death.
That in a 70 year lifespan, you will have slept approximately 8 hours, within 25550 days, which if where lost to unconsciousness, and assuming you
haven't deteriorated with a mind-destroying disease like dementia or Alzheimer, you would have only been consciously aware of 46.6 years of life, as
the rest may be lost to unconscious sleeping.
As consciousness, what if there was a way by which you could add to this over all conscious pool that your are accumulating? If you knew of a way to
prolong conscious experience, would you pursue it?
As a reality system, you also have an ability to become conscious when your body sleeps. You can, with practice add 1 hour, or two hours, some times
psychological time can stretch to give you what feels like days of conscious experience in the often discarded world of dreams.
You are a dreamer, you dream realities. Wouldn't you want to be a conscious participant in that role? You create reality when you sleep, but don't
take my word for it. Dream it. Add some years back to your conscious pool, and dream awake and aware of yourself as a dreamer.
