Dreaming

What if we didn't take anything personally, but lightly as though life were but a dream? What if we even took our "self" far less seriously? And what if our "self" were as substantial as "footprints of birds in flight"?

I am an old man

and have known a great many troubles,

but most of them never happened. Mark Twain

At the same time, what if we took the welfare of other people, creatures & the environment way, way more seriously, more personally even - as if there were no separation between "me" & "them"? Imagine truly seeing ourself in all "others" - "I am that".

Love says: "I am everything".

Wisdom says: "I am nothing".

Between the two my life flows. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"Only a Dream" - Van Morrison
