Dream within Another Dream ©

Vishnu the Arbiter of Cosmic Order was once taking ease on a lotus and he was sure he would keep himself light as a breath so as not to be a burden.
He dozed off and was disturbed by a bumble bee. He created a lotus just as the one he was resting and shooed it to drink from the new. He dozed off but he was once again woken up. The same bumble bee and the bee was in no mood to palaver. Vishnu became irritated and said, ‘go to the blazes.’ The bumble bee just ended in smoke.
Well Lord Vishnu slept soundly and after eons of time he was called to determine a case between a bumble bee and the lotus. His jaw dropped to see that the bumble bee was none another than the one he had incinerated. He turned around to see the other plaintiff. The lotus that he had created out of thin air was there. And looking rather peeved.
As Keeper of the comic order he had no choice but to get on with the case. He asked the Bumble Bee to produce his witness. Who takes the witness stand but Lord Shiva? The Lord of Destruction said it was true that it was his third eye that did the deed.
Visnu looked sternly and asked , ‘ who passed the order to kill the bee?’
Lord Shiva said, ‘You gave the order milord! In a dream!’ The god of Destruction upon cross examination explained that Lord Vishnu was part of his dream.
It was the turn of the lotus to bring forth his complaint. The plant said that the ashes of the bumble bee made him defiled for eternity.
But Lord Vishnu reasoned that the lotus could not have a reason for complaining since it was he who created out of nothing.
‘You are wrong,’ Lord Brahma said, ‘ you were in my dream and it was I created the plant because you insisted on it. ’
Transmigration of souls would make every blade of grass, rock, bumble bee or man as a dream within dream of another. It can go on ad infinitum.

Here is a Puzzling Thought
Rapid eye movement sleep (REM sleep) is a normal stage of sleep characterized by the random movement of the eyes. If we are asleep why move eyes at all? Perhaps the answer may lie in the manner we explain the nature of consciousness. During REM, the activity of the brain’s neurons is quite similar to that during waking hours; for this reason, the REM-sleep stage may be called paradoxical sleep. Here we have consciousness of the wakeful state and a ‘virtual’ consciousness of the sleep phase. Physiology shows same pattern of neurons sent by the brain.
In the Cosmic Mind within the Golden Pagoda dreams are like the scum that flows along the streaming of Consciousness of the Cosmic Mind. Bizarre shapes clocks without hands and slicing of sausages, or falling of tooth are all Nature’s way of interpreting the Mind for the individual. In similar fashion prophets see visions and the individuals consult those whom they think are gifted to interpret dreams.

Inspiration is hitching your experience to several notches higher. Raising yourself to that height is living life at a higher plane.
Curing A Nightmare©
Herenis of Alexandria as an infant cried a lot and as a child he was strange. In his eyes there lurked something wild and when he could speak he said,’ I see specters ghastly shapes calling me forth.’ Of course he saw nightmares often and his parents brought many physicians to find a cure. None of them could except one old man who listened to the symptoms of the child. He told the boy,” You write down what you have seen. Then we shall see.”
The result of it was a tale that predated Frankenstein by two millennia. Herenis wrote of the monster made by mechanical means. After he had finished to the surprise of all, he was cured of his affliction.
His mentor who suggested the cure read his book and told his parents:’ A wonderful tale. Of a monster that can change shapes. Who could have thought a monster lurking in everyday objects?’

Imagination plays with everyday aspects of life and to leap to something not yet born is to enlarge boundaries of reality. Cosmic Mind is the  Ultimate Reality in which our reality touches barely. But with inspiration we cover a higher ground. I recall one of the miracles in the New Testament. The woman who was afflicted with bleeding touched the hem of Jesus. In her inspired mind she knew she would be healed. It was so.
