When you are in a dream, most often you really don’t know that you are dreaming. You perceive that to be your reality and accept it. Sometimes you realize that things are not the way they are supposed to be and in that case you either continue dreaming where you could control the dream or you wake up.
We incline to enjoy it when we find out that we’re in a dream. This is mainly because we get to do all sorts of things which in real life wouldn’t be possible. Sounds all nice and fun until you have a dream that it is nicer than your own reality.
That is what happened to me last night. I had a dream where some of my problems were solved. I was thrilled like I have never been. Then I shared my joy with someone close. In that moment, when she heard the news she told me that I was in a dream, that nothing was real. I was shocked, completely shocked. My eyes could not believe that. I started arguing with that person, trying to prove her wrong. I looked over my hands, touched my body and everything felt tangible.
I didn’t stop until another person suddenly appeared in the room. Only then my mind understood that according to the laws of physics teleportation was still impossible. I felt sad, like I didn’t want to wake up to my true reality.
Lucid dreams were always my favorite but this one wasn’t. We are deceived to believe that the world created in our dreams is real. What if this world is just a bigger dream?
I keep wondering if maybe someday we will wake up in another dimension, just like when we wake in the morning. A dimension where all of this will seem like a dream.
