"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."..... dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-m.....

I'm in my own dream right now, as I am talking (oh OhK, writing then!). In my book I talked about Dreams and I talked about STEPS. The STEPS are within my dream. They take me forward on my Journey, as all steps do. So as you are all well aware by now I am Working Backwards to show you how I am creating my STORY.
You have probably noticed that I haven't been doing BLOG thingie as regularly these last few weeks. There is a reason for that. Within my dream I am currently writing a script. It is long and it is tedious and the type of writing for BLOG thingie clashes with my creativity. But it is wonderfully liberating. I need to meditate. I need to be alone. I need peace and quiet. I need to be in ME.
I need to be WITHIN MY DREAM..........
Hmmmm..... let's seeeee now. OhK. Here we go:
DREAM : ...........
1. a succession of images,thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep.
2. the sleeping state in which this occurs.
3. an object seen in a dream.
4. an involuntary vision occurring to a person when awake.
5. a vision voluntarily indulged in while awake; daydream; reverie.
Eeeeerrrr. Yikes. Who writes that stuff? Hmmm...... Obviously not a Member of the select Dreamers Club, of which I am currently the Foundation (and only!) member. I suppose if you want to be a traditional Dictionary maker upper thingie, then those definitions are a very rough maybe sorta kinda definition. But for those of weee Dreamers out there who know about dreams then we need to get down dirty and personal. Like Moi for instance. Now the third one from Dic is a bit silly when you think about it. The definition of a dream can't be an object in something you are defining. And yet, without getting all academic, it is probably the closest to defining what a dream really is. There's nice dreams that make you smile while you are knockin' out zzzzzz's, and then there's the naughty dark side dreams, called nightmares. Both are simply pictures in our MIND, as suggested in the first definition. Usually just 'THOUGHTS passing through'. After all, the word 'DREAM' is simply a man made thingie, and for most of us, including Moi up until a few years ago, dreams remain, weeell dreams, as defined in Dic. OhK....
Oh yeah baaaabeeee .......
(sorry I tend to get a bit excited!). Let's look at a very confucious kinda example, like ME (notice the upper case so you know which me I'm referring to). Now as you know I was a very materialistic objective kinda dude. Mmmm Hmmm. Got greedy, got broke and began a lot of self-inquiry when I met MSOT, my ME. Then I started this Journey. Quite simple really. I invited you all along on the Journey so you can SEE what happens, because I had nobody to show ME. Ohk.
Now this is the important bit.
My Journey is my DREAM. I am IN MY DREAM right at this very minute. As I am writing BLOG thingie I am IN MY DREAM. It is simply a STEP inside my dream, the Journey I am on. I am also writing a script, nearly complete which tells the story of MY DREAM. The script is a STEP inside my DREAM. Seems pretty real as I continue writing it!
My dream is SUBJECTIVE. Dic defines subjective as 'existing in the MIND'. Well done Dic. Correct. My dream is also non-linear. It is of a different FORM. It is not a straight line (linear is Latin for 'line'). It is a non logical way of thinking. It defies logic. That's why it is a DREAM. But while you are along for the ride of my LIFE, it should be fairly obvious that my DREAM now is my REALITY. I am writing to you now. Seems pretty real to ME. It IS MY DREAM.
I am INSIDE MY DREAM.
It gets bigger-erer. Lots. My DREAM is a choice of my MIND. My ME and my MIND are ONE and the same. Writing is an ART, and art is a part of my new ME, which is my Dream. What is my DREAM must eventuate because my ME is my dream, just like me writing this BLOG thingie.Writing is a part of my dream. Yesterday I hadn't written it. It was a STEP in my DREAM. Today I have written it. You're reading it right now. My dream is now my reality. My MIND is simply making my DREAM happen. My CHOICE........... , ME.....
..... i-DREAMS ......
