Tony_G Yes. But you do have to decide for yourself how you would like to participate in the dream. :)

[deleted user] I don't mean to crush anyone's dreams, but I personally don't believe in dreams. You see, dreams are just that: unattainable fantasies. Even if you make them reality there will be an undesirable element that reminds you of the real world. Ironically enough, it was Sam Smith who taught me that lesson. In a newspaper article where he was interviewed, Sam admitted that he did not enjoy his fame at all. He just wanted to make music. He did not want the attention. So yes, he achieved his dream but at a cost.

Tony_G We may be talking about different kinds of dreams. I interpreted it to mean that reality is just a (shared) dream (simulation, hologram, matrix, etc.). Dreams, as in "The American Dream", aren't real, but then again, isn't that why we are here?

[deleted user] I suppose I am referring to a different kind of dream. The dream I am talking about is ambition, goals and the likes that will never come true. I agree that reality can be perceived as a sort of dream, where we make up things that are not real, an illusion that makes the "structure" of this "reality". Still, as a realist, I disregard the whole notion of having "dreams". Thanks for pointing that out Tony.

Tony_G Awesome, Augustine. We each have our own way of looking at the world. i do think we're better off coming together as people who share the same goals but different perspectives. Nice to meet you. :)

Bora Things you guys saying are completely right. I share the same opinion, but at the moment I'm having a weird time in my life realising that we might be taught completely wrong since the moment we're born. And it's not the same when you just logically think about it, or you start being conscious about it. That's my standpoint from where those words were created.. Don't get me wrong on anything, meant no harm.

Tony_G No worries, Bora. You brought up an excellent point and I appreciate the opportunity to add to the discussion. Awakening is a confusing/scary time but you're in the right place to get some moral support. I remember being mostly alone when I was awakening, I hope that I , and others, can help make it easier for you.

Bora ..we are all at sleep, dreaming ourselves being alive.
Friday 19 February 2016, 18:11:58
Bora Thanks Tony. Somehow I have deep urge to wake up and feel alive..
Friday 19 February 2016, 18:14:38
Tony_G Exactly. I think there are different layers of "awake". There's awakening to the conditions of this reality and awakening to the true nature of reality itself. They are tied together, but not the same.

Bora I guess if you come to the process of awakening it just goes like domino effect? Or it might not..
Tony_G It depends on how much energy you invest in it. Knowing what I know now I'd say be careful not to try and digest too much of it at once, it's apt to cause anxiety or depression. Keep in mind, people are slowly starting to get organized, hopefully the balance will tip the other way soon. Just remember there are people in the world who love you even though they've never met you. :)

Bora Ehej ciao. Cuo sam jos davno i informisao se po netu pa sam onda malo zaboravio, ali me eto nezadovoljstvo drustvom i svetom u kome zivimo, uvek natera da se vratim i trazim ljude slicnog razmisljanja..
