Dreams And Reality

I woke up last night from some particularly interesting dreams. You know, the ones where you are flying around the room and the next moment walking on the moon with your friend who is dressed like a clown. Pretty crazy stuff, and yet it seems so real while it is happening. Of course, once I woke up I realized, “Ah, I was only dreaming.”

The ‘real’ feeling of dreams while we are dreaming reminds me of how real waking reality feels. Perhaps this is because reality and dreams are both happening in our heads. You may be thinking, “Wait a minute, reality is happening all around us, whereas dreams are what are ‘in our heads’.” Let’s think about this for a moment. How do we experience reality? We see, feel, hear, smell, and taste reality with our five senses. Our sensory mechanisms, like our eyes, pick up the outside world and convert that information to electricity which is then transported to our brain for interpretation. Our brain is experiencing reality through electrical impulses just like our dreams are electrical impulses. The similarity of dreams and waking reality is that they are both happening in our heads. Everything we experience is experienced ultimately on an electrical impulse level in our brain.

This leads us to a really good question. How do we know that what we consider to be reality is real? We don’t. All we can know is that we are experiencing something that appears to be what we consider reality. In fact, how do we know for sure that we are experiencing reality as electrical impulses in our brain? We don’t. There is no way to prove that we are experiencing reality as electrical impulses in our brain. This is just what it seems like to us.

Perhaps we are simply pure energy consciousness experiencing an elaborate ‘reality’ no more ‘real’ than a dream. This is exactly what I believe is happening. Some evidence for this is the ancient masters doing miracles. For instance: Milarepa putting his hand through a cave wall, or Jesus walking on water.

You might say, “Well, those are just stories. What about modern day scientific evidence?” Okay, how about Dr. Dean Rabin’s book The Conscious Universe, the Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena, that documents hundreds of scientific test showing the validity of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, mental interaction with living organisms, remote viewing, etc.

I know an even better way to validate that reality is not what it seems to be; how about learning psychic abilities for yourself. Would that be enough evidence that what is going on here is no more ‘real’ than a dream?

I know where you can learn powerful psychic skills and even more.
