Being alive is special. Being alive you can enjoy being creative. In the day you can day-dream. In the night you can night-dream.
Only when you are dead you no long dream, the mind having fragmented. In a darkness where there is no feeling, no pain, no joy, no insight. In the Darkness of Death there is no darkness of Black either, for you have no vision to see and register that Darkness. Though, for some, they believe that Death is where you eternally dream. That in death you are a dream.
Only whilst you are alive, though, have you the opportunity and power to transform your dreams into a Reality for others to enjoy or appreciate. As to see and read this text you must be Alive, what then are you doing with your Dreams in this moment of Reality?
Dreams also need a life to be, and they also extend their life when you communicate them with words or works and place them in the fertile compost of other minds. To share your ideas you must communicate your ideas. So make creative works, make new things, make writings, make art, make conversation and make Love and Loving.
Reality is, after all, the garden that is there for you to plant, to grow and to share Your Dreams. As you can only dream while in reality, perhaps reality exists for dreaming and by dreaming Reality is created.
Perhaps we are all a part of some God’s dream and while we are Alive is when we are given a dream-ability, and when we are dead we are given the ability to re-immerse ourselves back into being God’s Dream. Whatever way it goes, Given the Gift of Dreaming, we should not waste it.
For those who do not believe in God, it is still undeniable that you are alive and somehow are given gifts, gifts that inanimate things just do not have. Non-living objects cannot move of themselves as they have no internal reactive program to follow, they cannot explore, dream, or change the local environment to their own will, but you can.
You can even, just by smiling, change the life force of those around you, change their perception of their life and their dream of their future. God or no God, we are living creatures in a vastness of Nature. If there is or is not a God, still, we are capable of being god-like. Dreaming and actively weaving those dreams into Reality.
