A World of Dreams


'We create the world of the dream. We bring the subject into that dream, and they fill it with their secrets.'
'Then you break in and steal it.'

I'm hoping that Inception will be in my stocking on Christmas morning. I think it is a great film and in time will prove to be one of the all time great films.

Creating the world of the dream is such an intriguing idea and intriguing perception of our culture. A world that is created by others yet we believe is our own world. A world that loses touch with reality, yet because we are so submersed into it, we do not realise there is anything wrong.

'Dreams feel real while we are in them. It is only when we wake up that we realise something was actually strange.'

I wonder how awake we all are? How much are we living in a world created by others, a product of what society wants us to be? And do we give away our secrets too much, exposing ourselves to readily so that others can break in and steal our identity and make us who they want us to be rather than who we were created to be.

Are we going to wake up soon and realise something is drastically wrong, that we have been manipulated and controlled, no longer thinking for ourselves.

'I don't want to be a product of my environment. Rather, I want my environment to be a product of me.'

Jesus says we are blessed when we are poor in spirit, not rich in power. We're blessed when we are meek, not when we are proud. We're blessed when we seek peace and mercy, not when we seek war and revenge. And we will be blessed when we seek righteousness and are persecuted because of it because better to seek what is right for others than to seek our own agenda's.

Maybe we need waking up to this way, the Jesus way, and escape the dreams, reclaim what has been stolen and live as the people we were made to be.
