To Fall in Love in A Dream

There’s a reoccurring dream I keep having in which I fall in love with a woman. She’s always beautiful, warm, and kind, but never the same one. They’re all slightly different. What’s not different are the strong feelings of love that are invoked for them; so much so that even after waking up they linger. Sometimes even for days. Every time I wake up, I miss them dearly.

One might think it’s rather silly to miss a person that is not even real; but what is the difference? What are these powerful dreams teaching us about the seeming waking world?

Feelings of romantic love aren’t the only feelings I’ve felt. I’ve woken up in anger, fear, laughter, peace, and with all the feelings in between. The dream may have passed, but for that moment it was so real that it induced very real sentiments. How much different is that from the waking world?

Just the same as in the dream world, the waking world presents us with very convincing images. Scenarios that just like in the dream world, scare us, excite us, makes us feel love, compassion, and more.

Both worlds are fleeing moments in time. Neither world last longer than a few moments of consciousness. Regardless of how long a dream lasts, for a brief moment in time, they are very real to the dreamer.

So how then can we define real? How can we tell if the images we have been presented with our whole lives are the truth? Just as in Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, the prisoners only saw shadows projected on the wall in front of them that they believed were real. It’s not until one of the prisoners escapes that they have a chance of seeing the truth. Some don’t believe the prisoner who escaped, who comes back to try and free them, instead they decide to kill him because of his corrupt eyes.

When we are dreaming, we can’t tell if what we are seeing with our eyes is real or not. We accept it because it’s there, and react to it. I don’t really know if there is a way to tell whether what we see is real or not. However, something that is real must be permanent. It must exist permanently, not show itself and then disappear. That is my personal requirement for reality. So far, the only thing that I have found to fit that requirement are my feelings of loving-kindness for all living beings, regardless of what they have done. It is the state of mind that matters.

Once the mind escapes and sees things for what they really are, there is no more reason to be scared, unhappy, or depressed. One can then see clearly and becomes truly and permanently happy knowing that they are finally free.

In dreams we find ourselves scared and happy. We find ourselves creating wars and love that we believe to be real. The truth is to realise that you are dreaming. The universe is a creation of your own.

Wake up and know that you created those feelings of love. Choose to only create feelings of peace and laughter and let go of your devilish nightmares. It’s time to wake up, my Love.

Bitcoin: A Loving Currency

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is an online digital currency. It can be transferred from one person to another within seconds without the need for a third party.

There is no need to go through any institutions to transfer bitcoins. They are free from the control of any banks or governments. It is not endorsed by them. It is endorsed only by the people who use it.

With Bitcoin, there are no accounts that can be frozen by a corporation that doesn’t like what you buy, to whom you donate, or because of any deemed suspicious activity. You are always in control of your money.

Bitcoin has the potential to revolutionize the world’s economy. It returns the control of money back to us all, to whom it belongs. This is why Bitcoin is a loving currency—it is a loving gift of freedom to the world.

 

Why do we need it?

So what’s the problem with our current system? Why use bitcoins at all? Those are very good questions. To give a simple answer, we need Bitcoin because it means freedom from the oppression of large institutions.

Read the following cautionary words of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence (1776):

 

 “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Funnily enough, mostly all countries in the world have allowed a private central bank to control their nation’s money supply. In the United States, the name of the privately owned central bank is called the Federal Reserve. It is these private banks that usually lead to devaluing our wealth and eventually the monetary collapse of a nation.

Bitcoin is an amazing technology. More and more businesses are accepting it every day, and unlike fiat currency, it does not devalue over time so your purchasing power actually increases.
