Waking earlier and earlier lately.. Dreams that make little sense.. Not scary dreams.. Not anything worrisome.. They are typical in so many ways.. Finding myself back in school.. Or the old job.. Apparently feeling I still need to finish something.. Dreams of things crumbling.. Even green sneakers..
So why do I share such things?... I've asked that of myself more lately also.. Somehow.. With the years of social media exposure I've become to consider this place as just another place where we gather to share with friends.. Like tea with girlfriends...
Perhaps I should worry about dreams and the virtual reality that has become so much the reality of my life..
But I'm not concerned. Actually I have found that these other realities have become very helpful in my life.. Imagination was critical in childhood. Critical when trying to find ways to provide a living...
Remember the old adage of "Let me sleep on it".. Dreams somehow help figure things out when decisions are tough.. Social media has allowed me to experience people from the far reaches of the Globe.. Conversations and experiences that wouldn't have been possible twenty years past.
Sure traveling and being in the presence of friends and the reality of nature is very much a priority in my life. The real world is where I live and thrive. I'm just finding more and more how much the virtual life and the dream life are becoming part of my world..
Some of my friends are astral travelers and operate on multiple plains of existence.. Many of the shows I produce have hosts and guests with experience with the after life and or cosmic knowledge..
Some of the shows I produce will allow you to listen to a play created by playwrights and actors from different parts of the world.. All coming together via the net to create a play or experience that will entertain and take your mind to a created reality..
So as I think about my sleep patterns that have changed. I think about how almost everyone is now online.. Staring at little blue screens.. While waiting for appointments.. He'll just standing on sidewalks.. Laying in beds.. In vacations.. Everyone..all connected to the virtual realities..
I can see how much my world has changed.. From waking up as a newborn in a military hospital to a quaint cottage in Minnesota.. To the reality that our world is not just a physical world anymore..
I am not saying this is a bad thing or a good thing. Just like my dreams.. They are sometimes confusing.. Sometimes very helpful in figuring complicated things out.
My question girlfriend.. Do you see this happening in your life also? Or am I still just dreaming?
