After being prompted to focus on the word ‘dream’ today, I automatically thought of a video I watched not long ago called “Is this life a dream ? ” In this video Alan Watts explains inception and lucid dreaming in his lecture : Out of your mind. It is absolutely one of my favorite. … it always inspires me and gets me thinking ….. can you imagine if we all went out there into the world and made all our wildest dreams come true …. lived them….. climbed that mountain, jumped out of that fucking airplane. …… traveled to the other side of the world and put your hands and feet in that foreign soil….. ran to the person you love, who is unaware you love them….and have the courage to tell them….sit with the gurus of India…..really left your footprint…. your soul print on this world….so every being will know you were here….. that’s what we all want, right ? …. proof that we lived….really lived….proof that you were here….. I think that’s what we’re afraid of…. to be forgotten. …if we’re not remembered , did we even exist? ….so the question is, do you exist. … is this life one big lucid dream….. possibly. .. and in that case, what the hell is stopping you …..create those dreams. ….what are you waiting for…. this is your dream.
When we’re children. ..we play…we imagine…..nothing is impossible to us…. THAT child is still inside you…wondering what the hell you are doing…. asleep… cause it is uninterested in the mundane….wake that child up….and take it on an adventure ! Children get it… they see the Magick in life….the mysteries that are waiting to be discovered. …
That quote that says ‘ Sometimes you just need to sit down and talk with a two year old to put things into perspective ‘ …..I believe that is absolutely correct ! …the child hasn’t forgotten you…. you’ve forgotten the child.
Alan Watts in his lecture says….
” Like children who dare each other on things, how far out could you get ? What could you take ? What dimension of being lost of abandonment of your power…what dimension of that could you stand ? You could ask yourself this because you know you would eventually wake up, then you would get more and more adventurous. Finally you would dream where you are now, you would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today, that would be within the infinite multiplicity of choices you would have, so this idea then, everybody is fundamentally the ultimate reality, not God in a politically kingly sense but God in the sense of being the self, that deep down basic , whatever there is….and you’re all that, only you’re pretending you’re not. ”
Inception: The time at which something begins.
Begin…… it’s your dream
You, yourself, are the eternal energy which appears as this Universe. You didn’t come into this world; you came out of it. Like a wave from the ocean.
