The Paradox of Dreams

The Paradox of Dreams
The Paradox of Dreams

Dreams open a mind to other realms,
where not just enactments, reliving,
but new experiences mark our time,
and as on earth we may learn
what is proffered and discerned,
the circumstances we confront,
the feeling we imbibe and knowledge earned.

Often dreams are enlightening,
often confounding,
as our minds are imaginative,
and other plains so differently perceived,
as our minds discover the depth of consciousness,
multiple lives in concurrence
and the soul and its connections.

Lucid dreaming is a joyous occurrence,
some control and awareness a feast of experience,
and in our decisions the consequences
of our choices, just the same as physical life,
and some enlightening, others frightening
as our mind follows the courses of possibility,
the opening of awareness.

I find comfort in dreams,
the possibilities untold and seeds in growth,
as reality gains yet another clothing,
as we forge new pathways into life,
the human capacity of sentience in growth,
and the acknowledgement that wisdom,
may come from many an unexpected path.

Often, it is the least expected that yields
the most change in thought,
when habits and assumptions fall to proven realities,
as we progress and shake our foundations,
give limits further scope,
and in the awakening and acceptance,
our higher thoughts prevail.

In time these epiphanies replace foundations,
brick by brick, and we slowly ascend that path
of endless learning,
as wisdom slowly replaces the doubts
we once held in fear, to deliver us
to a calm and peaceful acceptance of the new,
thus becoming a higher consciousness.

    Exactly Tony, I agree that dreams can be very lucid. I love falling asleep and letting my subconscious mind take over my every thought. Drifting into sleep is a pleasant experience. To think that at any given point this could be our last breath on this side of the curtain. We would never know it, but wake up possibly on the other side, living a whole new experience on our continuous journey. Poe coined it perfectly, Life is but a dream within a dream. I truly believe we are on this earth to serve a purpose for higher learning and gather as much about this existence as possible, where we end up, is anybody’s guess, but lately I am hoping for a better flip side to this place we abide in now. Well penned my friend.

    I agree Vincent, who knows where we’ll end up, but I’m certain it will far better than this selfish world of ours. Dreams for me are very enlightening, sometimes lessons, sometimes something else completely. I’m sure it is often soul memories or even concurrent experience. Nonetheless I love sleep and dreams: I sometimes think they are more real that this illusion of reality. Glad you enjoyed it Vincent. Take care.

    Lucid dreams are such an experience, it is such a pleasure to step out of body for a little while and indulge. It just so happens to me that when the best parts are about to occur, that i usually when my alarm goes off. Lol. Nice work very deep.

    It’s always the way, cause we remember most what’s experienced before we wake. Glad you enjoyed the work Paul. Take care my friend. Cheers!
