This Crazy Life

In our limited view of the world as external, it leaves for much skepticism in the notion that the mechanism of consciousness emanates from beyond the confines of the physical human being and is the fundamental basis for all that exists in a complex universe. Even though many have awakened to the possibility of life beyond the physical realm, it is still culturally alien. 

To grow and evolve our conscious awareness to that of the transcendental elements that move us beyond what we currently know of quantum physics, we need to expand our limited view of what we have long considered reality. 

Truth passes through three phases: First, it is ridiculed…
Second it is fiercely and violently opposed. Third, it becomes self-evident.

~Arthur Schopenhauer

Those who doubt the reality of existence beyond the human form have not the foggiest notion of who they are and where they came from. Conventional science even acknowledges that over 90% of the ‘known’ universe consists of dark matter and energy. It would be extremely ignorant of us to think that nothing of intelligence exists within this ‘space.’ 

Our focus on power as external has seduced us into thinking that the material ‘scientific world’ is all that exists in our reality. We have forgotten what was once known to us…Our soul’s journey into physicality is a means of understanding the reality of our existence and the true nature of who we are beyond the physical realm. We cannot know light without having spent some time ‘in the dark.’ 

 Your visions will become clear, only when you can look
into your own heart. He who looks outside dreams;
He who looks inside awakes.

~Carl Jung

The more time we spend exploring consciousness, the more we begin to realize it is the conduit to the soul-nourishing energies of pure love. This is the kind of love that lights up your whole being, not just parts of it. It is a higher vibration that lifts us far beyond the limitations of the physical body.  

The most sacred place dwells within our heart, where dreams are born and secrets sleep, a mystical refuge of darkness and light, fear and conquest, adventure and discovery, challenge and transformation. Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive.

~Royce Addington

Exploring dreams is like unwrapping the gifts of our own psychological history – A history all human beings share. We are instinctual by nature. Our dreams serve as a bridge connecting us with our own internal wisdom. 

There are many difficult situations in life that we go through that assist us in becoming stronger and more resilient. The symbolism in our dreams reminds us we have what it takes to survive the hardships of life. 

Animal totems often appear in dreams to reveal some element of our attitudes or feelings that are outdated and no longer serve any real purpose in our current circumstances. Most of the time, these attitudes are evoked by a co-worker, boss, partner, an overbearing friend or relative, or even a life-threatening illness. 

Recently, I was struggling with an issue causing me much distress. Being someone who has always paid close attention to my dreams, I was flooded with animal totems in my dreams. From lions and tigers to… dinosaurs?!?! Lions and tigers and bears…oh my! They all reminded me I am much stronger than I sometimes allow myself to believe, and I have what it takes to conquer my fears. 

Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera.
A oneness with your world is your film.
Your bright eyes and easy smile is your museum.

~Ansel Adams

Dreams are just one of the many stepping stones we will encounter along the way to bringing us ever closer to communion with something far greater than our individual selves. We have been given an opportunity here to participate in something truly astounding. And that is to become fully manifest in a world made up of our conscious thoughts, ideas, and emotions and to remember that we are just visitors here in this crazy little thing called ‘life.’
