you'd dream the dream of living the life you're actually living today

Caitlin Surakitbanharn

i was cruising around on my fav website today - and i happened upon the most...fantastic essay by Alan Watts.  and it made me think of those amazing moments you have in life where you feel so full, so ready to explode with every part of who you are...that you think this could only possibly be a dream.  and it made me think of how sometimes, a photograph can capture that feeling..... that feeling of infinity, where it's all happening....

"....if you awaken from this illusion, and you understand that black implies white, self implies other, life implies death....or shall i say death implies life.  you can feel yourself.  not as a stranger in the world, not as something here on probation.  not as something that has arrived here by fluke.  and you can begin to feel your own existence as absolutely fundamental.  think of it's possibilities."

"....so then let's suppose that every night, you could dream whatever you wanted to dream.  and that you could for example, have the power to dream, in one night, 75 years of time.  and you would naturally, as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes.  you would have every kind of pleasure you could perceive.  and after several nights of 75 years of total pleasure each...you would say..."wow that was pretty great!  but now...let's have a surprise.  let's have a dream which isn't under control.  where something is going to happen to me and i don't know what it's going to be."  and you would dream that and come out and says "wow that a was a close shave...wasn't it?" and then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further and further out gambles as to what you would dream....and finally....you would dream where you are now.  you would dream the dream of living the life you are actually living today."
