Life: Mixture of Dream And Reality

Life, a condition that differentiates us from inorganic matter. Life can just be another word for existence. But have you ever wondered what it actually is? Why does it exist? Why does it deplete at one point of the time? What happens when we die? What if our whole life is just another dream, and when someone dies, it’s just another morning for them in a different world?

Most of us must have spent quite a bit of time pondering over these questions, but we are still unable to find logical answers for the same.

Let’s look at life from a different perspective today, what if life is a mixture of dream and reality? As you think about it you will surely agree that it indeed is a mixture of reality and dreams, and that it can’t just be reality, or dreams.

Reality isn’t some romantic movie or a sad play, nor is it a world where every dream comes true, doesn’t matter whether the dream is a good one, or a nightmare. A life without any dreams would probably be like a black line segment on a white canvas, and a life without reality would be just an ugly blot of different colors representing the roller coaster of emotions we go through.

Reality and Dreams often come together as a combination of different lines, shapes, colors, and textures, and fuse within each other to create a masterpiece which we call life. Some religions claim that we come from the earth and we go back into it, so, what if the clay which shapes us into living beings is the reality and the potter’s wheel and his hands just our dream? The potter, or our dreams give us a purpose to live and come into this world and be something useful.

Many people say that existence is futile, or that we live inside a simulation. I believe in this ideology, too, but then, sometimes I step out of my room and I see this world and its beautiful pieces and the art that exists in it in the form of paintings, music, architecture, dance, literature, and organic life forms. Can a simulation be so perfect that you look at something beautiful and you just get lost, lost admiring its beauty and grandeur, soaking in every minute detail and getting amazed as your brain deciphers the meaning of that art piece? You feel your heart beating up as your adrenaline rushes and you are then filled with this sudden newfound respect for life, and you consider yourself lucky to exist at the same time as that piece of art.

To think about it, we don’t celebrate happy dreams, we celebrate happy moments which were once a part of our dreams. We start dreaming from the time we are born and we keep dreaming till we die, some of our dreams are not fulfilled in reality, and some nightmares come real, but we can’t really complain about the sad things in life. Just remember, even our heart beats are in the form of waves which have their own highs and lows, life just ends when the lines are straight.

In the end keep dreaming, keep enjoying the reality, it’s full of beautiful things.
