"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

The Collective Dream

I have been thinking about the dream we live and
interpreting it ever since my 'Transformation' post
and the request for reading material on it. I don't
know if there is some. If you do know of something
please let me know.

Anyhow, I was thinking about it as energy needing
to be expressed. For example there is so much anger
and conflict in the inner worlds of many of the
individuals of this collective we are part of that the
energy of that must be expressed externally as a
mirror. Hence we have war. We can't get rid of war
without getting rid of the need for the mirror. It
doesn't work that way.

It can get really direct. So many people involved in
causes are part of the cause. They need to do their
inner work so they get involved directly with the
mirror. People fighting clear cutting that have a
tendency to bulldoze for example. It is an awesome
system really. If we look at what pushes our buttons
and look inside where it lives in us we can free
ourselves and participate in freeing the materilization
of it needing to occur.
