Dreaming as a reality

3 years, 10 months ago

At the moment I am going through a tough time with my waking reality, so I was writing down some of my feelings relating to dreaming and wanting it to my only reality, when ( I’m not sure why this never happened before) all of a sudden I understood the Matrix and the decision the characters had to make between the red and the blue pill. In the past when I watched the movie, I would have always chosen the red pill because I was adventurous and at a good point, but in my present state of being I find myself wanting to choose the blue pill and remain dreaming for the ease. I am wondering how many people feel like this on the site, I know its a common feeling and I am trying to dissect it.

There is also basically the same concept in inception where the people in Usef’s basement would rather be constantly dreaming than deal with reality.

I know what you mean. But the blue pill gives me indigestion, if you know what I mean. I’m reading a book that explains the dream (individual and collective) in plain terms. It’s called ‘the four agreements’ by don miguel ruiz. This book makes the red pill a much gentler experience. No matter what you choose, I wish you the best.

“Dreaming is the main function of the mind, and the mind dreams 24 hours a day. It dreams when the brain is awake, and it also dreams when the brain is asleep. The difference is that when the brain is awake, there is a material frame that makes us perceive things in a linear way. When we go to sleep we do not have that frame, and the dream has the tendency to change constantly.
Humans are dreaming all the time. Before we were born the humans before us created a big outside dream that we will call society’s dream or the dream of the planet. The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of smaller, personal dreams, which together create a dream of a family, a dream of a community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of the whole humanity. The dream of the planet includes all of society’s rules, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and ways to be, it’s governments, schools, social events and holidays.
We are born with the capacity to learn how to dream, and the humans who live before us teach us how to dream the way society dreams.”
-Don Miguel Ruiz, ‘The Four Agreements’

I hope this is helpful to you!

Maybe consider thinking of dreams as extensions of reality. You really aren’t escaping anything when you dream, just entering a different part or experience of reality.

Haha maybe you already have, but wait until you start opening up the can-of-worms that is your subconscious. All sorts of disturbing dreams start popping up and make you almost wish you were awake, not the other way around!

I used to have the idea that you could escape reality with drugs, alcohol, dreams, etc. But I feel that this is simply not true. All these altered states are still part of reality. No matter what you do/experience it is always within the realm of your reality because that is the way your consciousness experiences the universe.

If you don’t believe in life after death, then you cannot escape the experience of reality, even in death because when you’re dead you can’t experience or escape anything for that matter :/

Everything happens as it should happen, or else it would not have happened.
