Where wild minds come to rest

We talk a lot about living in our dream world instead of the real world. But do you ever think that the 'real' world we know isn't as real as we think it is? You can look at it from a spiritual or logical perspective. We live in this reality usually for less than a century. What's the realm of existence before and after this life? Is reality just a dream we can't snap out of? And why should we invest our emotions in such a temporary world?

I took a class in philosophy a while back and I remember reading about many theories regarding existence. As human beings, we can only experience reality through our 5 senses, but what if there's more to reality than what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch? Some people claim to have ESP (extransensory perception) and say they have seen spirits, fairies, aliens, etc. Some people can even smell or hear things beyond the ordinary. There is no scientific evidence to back up their claims, but there is also no evidence to completely refute their claims. The best thing we can do is try to maintain an open mind when talking about the supernatural.

With the help of Eckhart Tolle, I believe I have even found a successful way to combine the aspects of my fantasy life with the aspects of my 'real' life.  I have learned to validate my fantasy world, as a place where I do indeed have 'real' experiences.  I have as a result, begun to learn from those experiences as well.  Not just, my 'real' life experiences.  You know, challenges and upsets, not only occur in the 'real' world, but they also occur in my fantasies as well.  So the question becomes, at least for me. If negative aspects of life make themselves apparent in both realities.  Then where do I go to escape them?  And if I can never escape the negative aspects of life.  Then is there a way to make peace with them?  Eckhart Tolle, (for what it's worth) says yes.

I think this world or this 'real life ' is also MD which has become so intense now that it is not possible for me to stop it and see the reality.In this way we can say we are having MD inside MD and who knows it may be like an infinite chain so it comes out that there is nothing like 'real', it can only be more real or less real.

I don't think that the "real" world is any more real than the other worlds "I" live in.

This has crossed my mind more than once. I guess this challenges us to think with in ourselves and find what we might believe is the real life and if there really is such a thinks as dreaming. We could all possible be with in a dream like inception, a dream within a dream

I read his book "A New Earth" and watched his interviews with Oprah.  It was life changing for me.
