I have dreams now and again of going on a long journey to a final destination but along the way, there a numerous obstacles to cross, at every turn I have yet another obstacle to overcome. The frustration due to these never ending obstacles is quite tiering in these dreams. I don’t myself seem to have the same obstacles in my private life to the extent of my dreams but the world itself does, I think this is reflective within my dreams.
I have concerns, like many other people in the world do, especially at present in where the world is going. When my a dreams are full of stationary obstacles, this refers to my private life but when they are full of human obstacles, I don’t see this being of my private life but of the life of the world. These human obstacles in my dreams are usually of an unbecoming nature of one kind or another; I just kept coming across them at every turn which ended up frustrating me, I couldn’t see myself getting to where I was supposed to be going.
What is stopping the world getting to where it’s supposed to go to where it is going at present? The thing about being spiritually aware, we can usually sense/feel where our final destination will lead us, what we are going through at present will frustrate us if we are not altogether collective within our inner being. The world is full of unbecoming people hindering our journey at every point it would seem, there doesn’t seem to be a way out of these most unbecoming obstacles along the way.
Should I have stopped to be in the present within my dreams? The present wasn’t very becoming in my dreams as the world isn’t at present, is this a good place to stop and be in the present? Actually we really only have the present in our present state but do we stop or continue along our journey no matter what obstacle we come across?
Jesus and Buddha didn’t stop along in their journey to be in the present moment, they continued along their journey no matter what obstacle they came across however this isn’t saying they weren’t in the present moment, it’s just they didn’t stop in the present to make the present moment permanent. On a collective scale, humans seem to have done this, this is it, so we must deal with it in how it is and the only way we know how to deal with these obstacles is by force, fighting fire with fire which will only stoke the fire more until there is nothing left to stoke it with, at this point the fire will burn itself out before it has a chance to move on. The obstacles are the fire and we are the fuelers of such fire if we are going to fight fire with fire.
At present we have no other way to deal with such unbecoming obstacles only because we are staying in the present not moving on to the present, moving on will show us how to deal with such obstacles a lot better than what we are at present.
The answer is to not stay in the present but just be in the present while the present is present. If in my dreams I tried to tackle these people, I would be living the present instead of moving on from the present. The funny thing is, if a showed a lot of love towards these people, these people wouldn’t have become an obstacle or as much as an obstacle. Can we carry this through to the collective world? Showing distain only creates more friction, distain is only feeding the fire more however, if we showed love and understating towards these obstacles, is this feeding the fire? We are no longer feeding the fire but extinguishing such a fire while we move on within our journey as a collective.
Would it make a difference showing love and understanding towards radicles (obstacles), wouldn’t they then just tread all over us? Yes to a point but it’s a lot better than continually living in the present and feeding the fire which will burn out eventually leaving us where?
We can’t avoid these obstacles but we can certainly learn to deal with them a lot better by continuing along our journey as a collective, once we learn to deal with these obstacles a lot better, they will no longer be an obstacle.
