All of us dream… and I dream a bit too excessively. Having spent most of my life in dreams, living multiple lives, multiple realities, travelling eons of time, and reaching wherever and whenever as wished; am still here, at the very same place . But I always enjoyed this world. It’s feels more real to me than the waking world.
There are times when no one on the entire planet seems to understand you. This dream world of yours then becomes your refuge. Nothing in the world can make you compromise the belief in dreams because life will be so worthless without them. It seems impossible to exist without dreams. How can one stop seeing those stories and let them die just like that? How to believe that they have no real existence?
There’s always a fear in being a mediocre, our dreams eliminate that fact from our lives, dreams enable us to see a life of our choice, so many hours of the day we spend in seeing things the way we want them to be. Living the lives we always imagined the way it has to be.
Dreams define us… They are our secret passage to our own wonderland. It is said that the waking reality is also a dream. And the dreaming reality is also real as long as you are dreaming it. But both are far away from the absolute truth. Because when you open your eyes the dream dissolves, the story disintegrates in the infinity. Nothing pains more than knowing that what appears real is not real.
So here I sing a requiem for all my dreams… I want to let go off all the stories. I want to empty the mind of all the impressions. Here, I stop the need to try ‘to be’. ‘l’ need to get out-of-the-way so that existence of ‘being’ comes forward and oar the way forwards. I am throwing all the baggage of endless desires and impressions out in the ocean and make my boat a lot lighter so the sail becomes smoother and swifter. I sing a requiem for all that I am giving away that was really never mine.
Don’t know how long the journey will take, how much more do I have to endure. No… am not impatient to reach the destination. But I want to travel just and well. Hence, I let go off everything, that I accumulated on this journey, I let go off my dreams, expectations, desires… and I travel light, very light. Now I travel just for the love, that Love because of which I set out on this arduous journey in the first place.
