I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t get it. I feel as if I reside outside myself. Ever since I had a brain tumor and the subsequent surgeries, it’s been a very surreal experience for me. It’s very strange, and it’s very hard to explain completely, but here it goes:
It’s almost as if I am living in a dream-like state, kind of like I’m observing myself independent of my body, but also through my own eyes. I can’t really place words on it, but to place this sort of feeling would be hard to do completely. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, it’s the fact that I don’t understand it completely and it’s got me thinking about what reality really is. Is it just a dream? Because when I have dreams, they seem so real. The places, the detail, it’s so vivid, just like real life. So maybe life is just a very persistent dream. Because that’s how I feel in life, just like when I’m dreaming. It feels the same now. I even have trouble distinguishing from the two. Some things I’ve done in my dream I think I’ve done in reality and vice-versa. I feel I’m moving closer to the truth, though. Finding out that there is something above me, my physcial body that is, and it’s also a part of me. It’s something that kind of works with me to create the world as I see it. But I don’t know why. I’m working towards finding out, but it’s so damn confusing. There isn’t much direction and the more I think about it, the more confused I become. There has to be some meaning in this existance, but what is the meaning?
Finding something like this out will take me awhile. It will be something i enjoy though. I think that figuring out this question is the purpose of all of our lives. But most of us don’t do that. And this is a shame. Only a select few have actually done it: Jesus, Buddha, and other mystics, but that was true to them. Some of the things are true to me, but not all of them. But by examining these things, we start to understand that we don’t really know. No one does. We’re here, but we can’t possibly know why or what our lives will mean. It’s so abstract, but it tugs at our core beliefs so much that it can alter the world we live in drastically. But by doing this, we gain more clarity.
I’ve began to embark on this journey for about a year now and I really don’t know where it will take me. I am wandering across this plane of existance, while also going to other planes. The dream plane is completely random and the “reality” plane is very concrete and other planes I’ve never been on are probably somewhere in between. But I’m not sure why or what or how. So I just sit here, wondering, trying to figure this all out, while at the same time trying to hold a job and maintain a life. It’s becoming exhausting just to be, just to exist, and doing that alone is no easy task. It takes so much mental energy to ponder these things and to put everything in perspective in so many ways and wonder about how the world works and if it’s simply in our own minds. Who knows what’s really going on? It could all be some kind of dream,and that’s the way it’s starting to look in my world.
But there has to be a point to all of this. Some things don’t make sense to me. We were born into this world with all these rules that we had no idea were in effect, we were not consulted when they were made, and other things. It’s a real weird situation as I see reality almost breaking down in front of me. As I attack each core belief, I start to see different things happen that don’t seem possible under my old system. It’s almost as if I’m at the helm of the ship and I can decide what it is that’s real, but even if I can, what does that matter? So what if I’m powerful? And I use that power for good/evil? What will that do for me as an entity, not as a body? My body is not me anymore, it’s more a part of me, but just as much as my soul or spirit is part of me.
I hope I have some answers real soon on some of these questions. I will be back in a couple of days after I contemplate this more. It’s so expansive, I may get stuck for awhile, but at least I’m making some headway, and I have to find meaning it it. So, until next time…
