Deeply Real Events Assumed to be a Mirage(S)

 Quick bang on the button to put it on snooze. It’s 6 am and your alarm clock wakes you up. You brush your teeth, take shower and get dressed to go to work (or school or college). Taking a ride personal or public you reach your office. At the exact pre-decided time you begin your working day. You do your daily job, chat with colleagues in break and then back to work till the end of working hours. Again some travel time till you reach back home. You have a pleasant meal with your family. Then a movie or a book till you fall asleep.

A strict routine you follow like a robot every week day. This is the reason why I re-wrote the who schedule again. But can I tell you one secret, you might already know. One of those two days you lived, is a Dream! Can you tell me which one?

(I hope you are not as smart as the fictional Sherlock Holmes to say which one is a dream because, then the following explanation of mine becomes pointless.) I know you can’t tell the difference.  A dream is identified as a dream only after it ends and you wake up. Both the events between two consecutive sleeps you have in your memories and both feel very real.

Now you might argue that dreams aren’t always same and boring as reality. “Sometimes very unrealistic things happen like riding a winged horses or you finding yourself to become the king or queen of the world. In such a case once you wake up it is very easy to say the thing I lived before waking up was a dream.” It’s agreeable but not accurate.  Though presently due to connectivity we know that we live on a planet called Earth, inside a solar system of 8 planets and a sun, inside a galaxy called Milky Way, etc. But that is not our world. Your world is the places you travel for real and people you interact with quite frequently. Existence of nothing else is of relevance. Further every world has its own local rules. Like in a free country you have the freedom of speech, movement, etc. But in a smaller world called ‘school’ during class hours you aren’t exactly allowed to chat or move around the class without teacher’s permission. Similarly, the place you find yourself in what you call a ‘dream’ has its own rules. There, a sparkling powder having the ability to grow tress in a second, might be logical but smartphones on which you can slice fruit with your fingers is a work of fiction. So, why discriminate and classify events as ‘Dream’ and ‘Real’?

I believe that every memory is very real and require equal status event the ones you created yourself. Live every moment and create memories that you would treasure for life, even those that might feel unreal. Don’t let anybody stop you from dreaming by calling it a lie, because what’s a lie?

A lie is simply that truth no one else is willing to believe.
