A man went to the doctor and said, "Doctor every night in my dream I play soccer." Doctor said, "Take these pills, they will help you sleep better."
The man said, "I can't take them. Tonight is the final game."
I happen read this joke today and found it to be rather a naked reality than a joke :-).
After all who wants to end the dream!!! Hardly one in a million. The seeker 'appear' to be in the process of ending the dream, but actually fears for the same. The seeker likes to be known as a spiritual seeker ...
loves to continue playing the game as reality rather than discovering the waking dream as the Dream. The seeker go on seeking, searching and finding the medicines for the Dis"ease' and upon getting them, instantly backtracks and misses the golden opportunity of discovering the Eternal Ease.
The backtracking happens with a fear of dissolution of the accepted notions, beliefs, concepts and inability to cognise the Inexpressible Truth as his Real Nature. The backtracking happens mainly because of the absence of love...the absence of intrinsic faith in the most powerful Alchemy called LOVE.
Whatever the question, Love is the only Answer! :-)
Wish you a Lovely New Year 2011!
