What is the difference between a dream and real life ? Remember what you have dreamed last night, or any dream you had once. Good. Do you remember the world you have been in and the
feelings you had ? Good. All that can be remembered but not touched now, not seen now and can not be felt now; so it must have been a dream. Agree, do you ?
Do you remember your last holiday trip ? Do you remember the location and the feelings you had there? Good. What did you agree in the last paragraph ? All that can be remembered but not touched
now, not seen now is a dream. – But didn’t you experience it really and didn’t you touch this and that really ? And over all you have real photos as a proof !
You believe there must be a difference between a dream and a holiday trip. Well, in the very moment you have been in this or that location of your holiday trip it had some quality of reality. In the very moment you have seen or felt something it appeared to you as real.
The dream world felt very real as well while you were dreaming and in no way you were aware of the fact you are only dreaming. Therefor, it was a seeming reality in the moment of you dream. Now you are awake and you know the dream was a dream It neither had nor has any aspects of reality.
Let us assume reality is only here and now and only while I can see and touch it. That would meen reality must be limited by time. When the time goes by this “reality” goes by as well. A reality
that changes and is limited by time, a reality that vanishes is not called “reality” but it is called illusion.
You can turn it around and around. You will never find a way to proof that you life is real. Even you photos from you holiday trip do not proof it. Those photos only exist for a limited time. – You know how quickly you computer or your mobile phone can “forget”. ;-)
Even scientifically the existence of this world or the existence of matter and energy can not be proved. What ever wanted to be proved as existent a measuring instrument or even a complicated machine driven by computers is needed. But those instruments are all build up of matter them selves. So, proofing the existence of matter over matter does not make sense. (And when you can touch it with your hands, it is matter that touches matter. The same with your eyes.)
Yes, there is a difference between the dream and the world: the world seams to be more intense and longer lasting.
We never can prove that the world and the life are real – therefore it is an unreal life in an unreal world, it is an illusion; a so-called dream-world and a dream-life.
Consequences: We continue life and follow up our deeds. In the same time we put an other value to the things and incidents of the world. Being aware there must be something unchangeable, something behind this world.
Inspired by a book a lady asked me once (it was at Candelaria on Tenerife Island):«Do you know what the biggest illusion is ?»
And I replayed: «The biggest illusion is: we believe the illusion is reality and we are made to believe reality is illusion.»
