A memory of a dream is no different than the memory of something that happened in the past. It’s no wonder there’s so much confusion about life, past memories are used to decipher what’s real and what’s an illusion.
Did what happened yesterday really occur or was it an illusion? I have memories of yesterday, but I also have a memory of last nights dream. Both seem just as real, I have no answers for this, it’s just one of the phenomenons of life. It amazes me that no matter what’s goes on in life, it goes by so fast. A moment, an hour, a day, a week, a year, decades, just like that, poof, gone. One of the things I do know is to just be with what happens in each given moment and remain present so at least there will be awareness of I Am.
An individuals life is very fleeting, concepts and beliefs are used to try to make sense of it, but they don’t really work because the more they’re held on to, the more confusing an individuals existence is. It’s as though the flow of life is cut off when concepts and beliefs are used, but the flow of the Universe can’t be stopped, it always has been, it will always be, and no human concept or belief will stop this, nor will the individual intellect ever figure out the beginning or end.
One day individual existence begins and time is used to measure it. This measurement is applied to try and figure out a reason for existence, but there really isn’t any. Life just goes on and on, one tick of a clock at a time without much regard to anyone’s individual existence. It’s all one moment intertwined as the past, present, and future. It occurs non stop, meshing each moment into each other. The individual tries to figure this out by forming beliefs and concepts that are provided by a memory. A memory that really has no distinction between a dream and past occurrences, so it’s no wonder this process causes confusion. There’s nothing real in an individuals existence because as soon as something happens it becomes a memory and how can anything be relied on if one can’t tell the difference between a past occurrence and a dream.
