what is it that you see? (part I – the dream)

 

have you ever wondered,

when you are dreaming,

what is it that you see?

 

perhaps you see a mountain

and you climbing it

and a sky above

and a toe hurting

 

but

actually!

what are you seeing?

 

is there a mountain inside your head?

or an infinite sky or a fleshy toe?

is there even a you, a person, climbing?

 

no

all there is, is images in your consciousness

a consciousness

that is “sleeping” peacefully in a comfy bed

 

but what are those images

actually

made of?

is there any paint in the colors displayed?

 

or

perhaps

all there is

is your own consciousness

weaving a world

out of itself

much like a spider

builds a web

out of its own body

 

when you dream

all you dream of

is your own consciousness

 

all consciousness ever experiences

is itself

 

like water swirling itself into whirlpools

never experiencing anything other than water

 

like wind spinning itself into hurricanes

never experiencing anything other than wind

 

~

 

now,

have you ever wondered,

when you are awake

what is it that you see?
