What if this is a dream? What if tomorrow is a dream? What if….yesterday was also a dream? Sounds vague doesn’t it? Yeah I think so too, but certain things in this so called reality of ours make us question facts we possess about ourselves, our time & the true nature of our existence.
Have you ever experienced the feeling of trying to remember certain events that matter a lot to you, but for some reason they seem very distant & delusional? They make you question their existence, their occurrence. You keep trying to dig deeper & deeper trying to figure whether the flash of certain events in your head was a reality or simply a dream. It’s freaky, but that’s the reason we start believing in the alternate reality of human kind.
Do we even really exist or are we just another form of God’s hallucinations? If we exist in reality then what is the purpose of our existence? Wait. Does God even exist? I would probably classify these questions as part of the 3rd degree torture style. They inflict instant pain in the deepest corners of your brains, they make your senses go numb & last but not the least they bring you to a complete standstill.
At that point in life your mind is empty, even the most imaginative person in this world cannot describe that feeling. The fear, the terror, the beauty of not having an answer to the question of our existence makes it so pure.
Let me make this a little more interesting. Answer these questions in your head.
- what are you doing right now?
- why are you reading this?
- why does it motivate you?
- why do you want to do something great?
- why do you want to earn a lot of money?
You have an answer to every question I ask, but do you know what you really want from life? Is it money? is it a beautiful girl? Is it the well being of other people or simply fame that you seek? Well let’s assume for you it’s money. Imagine I gave you all the money in the world that you could ever dream of. That probably got your eyebrows up, but did that answer your basic question of why you are here, the reason of your true existence?
These wants are simply self-defined goals that we possess in our heads cause the human mind is incapable of comprehending our true nature. It cannot differentiate between being in a dream or being in our so called reality.
What is reality? I keep hearing people around me say all the time, get real my friend, be practical. I have one question. How practical or real does our existence sound? Does a billion people worshipping hundreds of God’s sound practical or real from any aspect? The fact that we believe in the supernatural makes us the most impractical & unreal organism on this planet by default. I do not deny the existence of God. I believe in him more than anyone would, but I believe in the reality, that there is no reality.
All I understand of the place we are in today, is that we have many choices to make. Whether we live in a dream or the present, we always have choices that define the people we want to be. It does not matter whether you believe in the existence of God or not, whether you live in a reality or a dream. All you need to understand is that if we could exist & the history that we humans have lived through is really true, then there is nothing in the world that is impractical, unreal, unbelievable or bullshit!
Everything is as real as it’s not. Now I ask you this question again.
What if this is a dream? What if tomorrow will be a dream. What if…yesterday was also a dream?
