A dream is the gateway to our consciousness. Or is it the other way around? A dream takes on many forms. This is perhaps natural because a dream is part of a mental process. There are individuals that seriously consider our existence to be a dream. This dream would naturally only exist in the “mind” of a being that was dreaming; or would it? Can universal consciousness dream without body or mind? Or is this a phenomenon (dreaming) that occurs only within form consciousness? Do we dare merge mind and consciousness together?
The two have distinct traits that are independent; but still should be considered united. A dream would not be possible without both.
We have the capacity to reflect consciously on our existence, the universe and life. This may partially account for the demanding urge in human beings to find a creator. Would it be correct to say that only a creator could reflect on the above topics? Therefore we should at least entertain the idea that we are this creator; not as a person or a God but as united consciousness (oneness). We as this human form have no purpose other than allowing this absolute consciousness to manifest.
This consciousness manifestation could occur effortlessly. It could flow in harmony with the mind; if only we would accept without needing to interpret or define it. The mind constantly invokes separation. A dream is a portal for unrestrained consciousness. It generally allows consciousness to randomly flow with only limited interference from the mind. The dreamer is also not generally distracted by so many sensory input occurrences. The mind is naturally still contributing to the dream during the dream phases. This may be through mild sensory and cognitive occurrences. Stored memory in the mind plays a large role as the source of dream information.
The “random ideas and images generator” (title quoted from Alain Hubrecht in Facebook) in our head is responsible for providing the story line for a dream. This is a story line without restrictions. This lack of defined reality or limitations is due to the dimension of consciousness. Have you every experienced a dream where you were flying? Lets not take the time to break down the how’s and why’s according to Carl Jung or anyone else for that matter. We are interested in the experience itself. I have had a reoccurring dream of flight over many years. It is quite exhilarating. I experience dreams in a semi-aware state. I wish to say that many times I am aware that I am dreaming during the dream.
Dream the Impossible
This is wonderful during the dream of flight. I witness this dream completely aware of the field of unrestricted consciousness. However I equally experience the “mind” manipulating me with thoughts of disbelief and impossibilities concerning a human being that wishes to fly. Thereby I fly through the air like a bird and rocketed back and forth through trees and over mountains. I also witness the mind interjecting doubt and fear into the field of consciousness during such a flight. This causes the dream experience to unfold in an emotionally stimulating manner. This particular dream always ends as I dive to the earth at great speed; whereby I then land on the ground as softly as a feather.
I mentioned at the beginning of this article that there are individuals that believe we are the result of a dream. Many of these same individuals even reflect (perhaps humorously) on what would happen if this “being” every awakened? Would we loss our “reason for being” (cease to existence)? Or would we equally awaken to the reality of oneness that is the backbone of life? In other words; would the awareness of form self-consciousness awakening allow an unrestricted portal to universal consciousness? Would this portal then allow absolute consciousness to be fully consciousness of its true self; thus the circle would be complete.
Best wishes to all
“The content of our dreams is largely determined by what we fear, hope for, and expect.From this perspective, dreaming can be viewed as the special case of perception without the constraints of external sensory input. Conversely, perception can be viewed as the special case of dreaming constrained by sensory input. Whichever way one looks at it, understanding dreaming is central to understanding consciousness.”
