The Nature of the Dream - I am the Dreamer and the Dream

The Nature of the Dream - I am the Dreamer and the Dream

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.” Douglas H. Everett

We come from the Light as a projection (like a ray of sunshine eminating from the sun). We are a Light consciousness occupying a body also composed of Light. We dreamed a dream called your life journey. It was your personal movie – created, directed, acted by you. You put all the right actors in your dream-movie to reflect the fears, desires, and lessons you came into the earth plane to experience, work out, and resolve.

If you pay attention, you will notice that the same fears and desires show up again and again in your movie. It is not so much that the movie is the same, but that your interpretation of the dream is the same and you forgot to resolve your issues. A woman has a series of abusive partners. Someone else feels abandoned repeatedly and another person is continually ill because that is their movie screenplay. Of course, these incidents don’t have to be repeated, but as you, the director, keep writing the same script and continue with the same interpretation, they do.

What to do? What to do? How do you change the script, and do you want to? People tend to become comfortable with a particular outcome – it is predictable. Even if it is unpleasant, it is familiar and therefore comfortable. In other words, I know how this turns out – no surprises -because I’ve lived the same scenario many times. If I rewrite the script, the outcome will be different, unknown. Do I dare chance it?

Dealing with the unknown may seem scary because you don’t know how things will turn out. You are taking a chance. You are risking your comfort. That is true until you change your viewpoint and see adventure as a new possibility. It means adjusting your point of view and interpretation. Instead of being the victim in your new dream-movie, you become the hero. You choose to look at the process with different eyes and new perspective.

Another way to change the movie is to see through it. After all, it is just a dream. It is not real. Shortly it will go away and at any moment you can recognize it as made-up (a dream) and decide to let it go. You wake up. Or you can see it with humor and laugh or become detached from it.

Also, forgiving yourself for coming up with this scary or harsh dream-movie works too. As you let go of the offending characters and scenarios the dream-movie ceases to be. Forgiveness is always a good choice as what you forgive ceases to be. I love myself and I am sorry that I put myself through this trouble or conflict.

I am grateful for waking up to the fact that my dream life was my creation, and I can now release it! I now know that because I am the Light and I create using the Light, I am really LOVE having a temporary material life experience. I am the one that gives value to the scenario I dreamed, and it is my choice how I choose to experience it. Therefore, what I previously interpreted as restrictive, I now see as an opportunity to learn a beautiful lesson and let the whole thing dissolve into the Light substance from which it came, just as one day I will release this material body I am using back to the Light with gratitude.

For now I recognize that my dream-movie was really a teaching tool that I was using to recognize who I really am….. I am the Light. I am the creator of the dream-movie script, I am the dreamer and the creator. I am the student, and I am the teacher.
