Wild night dreaming

Dream. Dreaming. Night dream. Daydreaming…Wilder than real life adventures , and by far.

parallel life: Extravagant, detailed, passionate, creative, limitless in potential and capability…

Gravity?  How heavier than earth you like it to be?

The ultimate in oppression, in feeling down to earth, in inertia…

I get up and feel unable to reintegrate bed.

I have got to do anything but Not going back to this heavy dream.

In real life I don’t  recall how a person a shook hand with was dressed or fathom his character.

But in dreams, I see and meet hundreds of total strangers, and I am able to dress every one of them according to their character, and create multitude of facial features…

Where all that creativity came from? Not from my conscious day world.

Gravity? How lighter than earth do you like to feel it?

Feeling the air exercising the proper pressure under you wings, sliding, hovering over mountain tops, valley, speeding like crazy, feeling light, happy, full of expectation; climbing high walls, with bare hands, effortlessly, much faster than cats and lizards…

Noises, morning clapping trying to get me out of my lovely dream, and I refuse to acknowledge that it is time to face the “real life”.

How do you dare claim that my dreaming period is not as real, is not the wonderful possible life, my life, my expectations, my power…?

Older people, hard of hearing, dim in the eyes, decrepit

Just hanging on to life, to the living, just to experience another dozing dream, another night dream…

Laying down on this “balcony of a bed“, a relaxing long chair, eyes closed, excited for a new story adventure, capabilities rejuvenated, limitations vanishing in thin air…

All is possible, youth, a reincarnated life of what it should have been…

Hanging on to life to see the grandchildren and children?  Common, get real. 

Children make themselves scarce and you have been forgotten long time ago.

No, elder people grab to life for another dream story adventure:  The real life when the other stupid “real life” gave up on you, and turned you down, and trampled your dignity, smashed all your wishes and expectations…

Many older people are visited by the those who passed away in their night dreams

Dream. Dreaming. Far out.

A parallel life: Extravagant.

The real life? Got to agree, sooner or later, that dreaming is the true lullaby that your mother failed to sing to you, tacking you in bed…

Night dreams exhibit the most horror events that your day imagination could never fathom. Blood, plenty of blood, plenty of dirt, the dirtiest WC you could never imagine, slaughter hood, the Horror…

And you are doing your best to get out of this nightmarish dream. And you wake up trembling and shaking in total disbelief.

I bet most of those who die in their sleep had dreamt of a totally horror story that their heart could Not overcome.

No, night dreams are Not a “closure” or a filling of your conscious day activities and thinking.

No, night dreams are meant to equalize and re-balance your emotions in your conscious behaviors: They are meant to contradict and opposed your conscious self in order to regain a semblance of middle ground behaviors for adapting to reality in our survival instinct..

If you were overjoyed during the day, the night dream will give you another sader alternative to this emotion.

If you were totally down during the day and feeling helpless, the night dream will extend to you a much better attitude and happier emotions.

Why everything, every adventure is possible in dreams, except falling in Love? 

This split-second realization that “This is it!”.

Maybe I never fell in love in order to dream it? What a pity.

Falling in love must be the concentration of a life experiences, observations, feelings, knowledge…What a pity!

Except falling in love, everything else is in the realm of dreaming, a much livelier, colorful, exciting alternative powerful life.

What a pity!

No problem: I can fall in love in my daydreaming adventures.

Full Consciousness, unconscious mind, subconscious brain, Night Dreaming…

First we need to define among the various levels of consciousness:

The Unconscious Mind is the constant stream of thoughts that crosses our mind haphazardly, which we have no control over the process. Basically, the unconscious mind recalls the past, think of the future and prevent us from focusing on the present moment. It is the main terrifying constraint in our inability to refrain our brain from venting out all the thoughts that crowd the brain networks.

The Subconscious Brain is what govern and take control of our current activities. Without the subconscious brain, or automatic activation of our inner brains, accidents will be the norm instead of avoiding risks and calamities.

It captures millions of observations and events per minute while the conscious brain may observe only 40 events and objects. The subconscious is way far ahead of what we think we actually have “seen”: We are seeing the mental image of objects before we recognize the actual object.

For example, in a city crowded with bike riders, very few bike accidents are recorded: The subconscious brain was “trained” to memorize the whole environment and possible risks and engages to take full control of our biking activities while our mind is wandering, and our unconscious mind spreading all kinds of thoughts that are not relevant to the current activities.

Another example, as we land in a foreign city, we quickly feel exhausted: We rely on our senses to capture the environment and our senses are overloaded. It takes a few days for our subconscious brain and memory to assimilate the environment, take control and relieve our senses from tending to the details.

Full Consciousness is the power acquired by training to “disobey” a few of the thousands of orders our unconscious bombard us with every minutes.

For example, “Open your eyes, scratch your nose, what time do you have…”

The main problem is that we are not conscious of our mental agitations that make us confuse reality with thoughts

The difficulty is not the content of the haphazard thoughts, but the links that we attach to them.

Training our consciousness help us to identify the thoughts as just thoughts, transitory mental phenomena, and Not as durable certitudes.

Training our consciousness to Full Consciousness help us to observe the multitude of orders that the unconscious is bombarding us with and to learn to counter a few of the orders and delay the responses at least.

 Full Consciousness says “I am Not simply what I think!”

For example, the following two sentences are not the same:

“My life is sad” and “I am in the mood of thinking that my life is sad”

 Full Consciousness is tantamount of observing the flow of our thoughts, to keep a distance from the flow, observe our thoughts pass by.

There are no way to control our brain from thinking of all kinds of thoughts. As Paul Valery observed “We think that the conscious mind rules, but for sure it cannot governs”

When we reflect, we are not producing any new thought: We are simply engaging in rearranging, cataloguing, and trying to focus on a few thought that are out of our control.

We can take conscious of the tumultuous crowding of our thoughts, take a deep breath and learn to observe the haphazard flow of our thoughts.

Note: Night dreaming re-organizes the unconscious thoughts into a story book that the subconscious brain “memorizes” for later usage.
