An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Dreams and Reality…

What I find most amazing is that creation repeats itself at smaller and micro levels. Whether it is the forces that keep the planets in place or those that keep atomic components in place.. the structure seems to be so similar.

The same, I believe, is true of our “dreams”. A person dreams and “creates” a world. It is real until it lasts. Can he direct the dreamworld? yes and no. Does he sweat and be a part of the dream too? Yes. Is he in that dream? Yes! Is the dream “in” him? Yes!

So there are “two” roles of the person dreaming – the dreamer and the dreamed. IS the dreamed “alive” or “real”? Only vicariously!

Interestingly, the breaking of the dream also provides us the way to break our “dream” of this world – only when the dreamed realizes that he is no other than the dreamer… .the dream instantly breaks. Until the dreamed is actively involved in the various plays of the dream… he will sweat, laugh, cry, get hurt and be afraid.. but the moment he loses himself.. and becomes one with the dreamer.. he is free from that dreamworld.

The answer is provided by nature to us every night. Still it takes Prophets and Saints to tell us in their own “proprietary” technologies the various ways in which we can get more and more involved in this world and fight other “dream actors” all the while promising a way out of it!
