Let the dream unroll itself to its very end. You cannot help it. But you can look at the dream as a dream, refuse it the stamp of reality.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via lazyyogi)
I had a man tell me on Sunday that dreams are not merely weird things that I have when I’m sleeping. That they’re pasts, presents and futures, other dimensions that I’m living out…that the’re all lives that I’ve lived, or am living.
It’s one of those esoteric things that I can’t wrap my head around - there are infinite possibilities, all existing alongside us. This is not all there is. Right now, I am not the only ‘me’, there is. Right next to me, in other dimensions, are versions of me that are more timid or more aggressive, more ‘alpha’ or more ‘beta’, nicer or naughtier. One of those versions of me may have killed men, or raped women. One of those versions became a politician instead of studying journalism. One of those versions has a better family life, or may already be married…and all of those people are me. It’s just that I have not tapped into those dimensions.
Still trying to figure it all out. But there is one thing that I’m willing to concede - that all the possibilities for the person you are all exist in this moment. You can be more social, once you tap into that person that already is instead of thinking that it’s something that you need to become someone else to do. You can be more assertive, because you are. You can have what you want and need, because in one dimension you already have all those things. You just need to see that dimension. Call it your own 3D.
So what are you dreaming of? Ready to start calling it reality?

lazyyogi:

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question: 

How are you? 

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question: 

What is God? 

If you think that the Truth can be known
From words, 

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean 

Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth, 

O someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly Laughing –Now!
