Just a quote from the show Homeland that I wanted to share:
“My dreams have a realness…
My Reality has a dreaminess…”
This is so true!
Dreaming and reality have a definite touchpoint and carryover between them.
In Judaism, their is a saying that:
“Sleeping is one-sixtieth of death.”
Life-sleeping-death all exist along a continuum.
The elements of our being cross all three of these domains.
When we are alive, there are elements of dreaminess–and it often doesn’t feel quite real.
When we are asleep, our dreams can often seem so real that we actually feel them and physically react them–we may even scream and wake up an incredible fright.
When we are dead, I believe that we live on–that our soul never ceases–that it is a part of our everlasting G-d. 😉
