Dreams are as mysterious as life itself, on the context that it is over-whelming real life experience. People can dream about flying and falling, movies and monsters , horrors and hell and still go completely unaware about the granulating details of the most important dream. Some other dreams stay and repeat, sometimes filling you with a surge of energy and sometimes depriving you of the little possible peace in you.
Are the dreams that important to life? Wouldn’t our lives be better when our mind could actually slip into a semi-coma state with nothing but satisfaction of the long rest after a hectic play of emotions and physical strains that you have to endure.
Is it for the happy dreams that make us smile or is it for the frightening ones that warns us of an impending danger else is it for the pattern that you draw to know yourself. Still in a haze?
Do you know why we still dream?
Let me take you through figments of people and their lives!
A young boy, no more than four sits across the street in ragged clothes and an emaciated body but he smiles for he dreams.
A thirty year old lady, after having lost her hairs due to cancer but before that she had a beautiful family, a loving husband but all that she is left with is an estranged relationship and a rough fate yet smiles, for she dreams.
A sixty year old man, completely weak from all the diseases known to mankind, but his heart aches for a treatment from his family. He is alone on a torn sheet, succumbed to death in an Old-age Home yet now and then the nurse finds him smile in his sleep for he dreams too.
With all the problems and conundrums we endure through the day, the night comes as a knight with hopes, some gives us strength, some others warnings and something more the very source of energy to carry on.
The young boy smiles for he dreams of better living that he is adamant to achieve. He wants to live for a better tomorrow.
The lady with the cancer smiles for she just has heard of people getting cured of cancer, a hope to live and make a living of her own. With no strings attached. She wants to live for a better tomorrow.
The old man smiles for he dreams of the people around him as a family and he has realized that home is not a physical entity but a place where he feels that he belongs there and the old-age home has given him a family of friends to share his feelings. He wants live for a better tomorrow.
And that is why we dream, for that single ray of hope that bestows from the darkest tunnel convincing of the brighter sun at the end of it.
We dream because we believe that tomorrow can be better.
We dream because we know what it is like to not have any dreams and we would better be dead rather not having to dream.
We dream to realize what we are and what we are supposed to do.
We dream to live in a bubble and smile about it.
We dream to forget it more often for they are not that necessary.
We dream to live another life in hundred different forms.
We dream to know the answers to many forbidden questions.
We dream because that is a way for a new perception to be born.
We dream for it to come true.
We Dream to Live Again.
