I can’t stop imagining our universe. That mirage, in which we are solely happy, where there is no pain, no hard choice to make, no broken dream or heart, no suffering, and no shadows.
In that universe, life flows effortlessly. In that cosmos, we only need to be pretty, enjoy life, and relax to make the most of our moments together.
In that dreamland, nature speaks our language, and we speak hers. We worship all around us, and she takes good care of us.
In that universe, love is all there is. Nothing around us matters as much. We live in the spirit of true love.
In that fantasy, the scars are gone, healed ages ago, and the regrets never existed. Our souls no longer need to hide, mask, worry, or suffer. That world is shameless, guiltless, painless. It reminds us of how we got there, a beautiful story to tell and enjoy at the campfire.
In that world, we enjoy for hours the sparkling waves of seas; we chill our faces with the gentle blow of the breeze; we smell the green from the forests and feel the sandy ground keeping us safe and awake; we hear the perfect symphony of the birds carried away by the echo of the wind, and we taste cotton candy freedom the moon and clouds present to us as offerings.
On that earth, days are so much fun! We read to each other and share the wisdom of humankind; we giggle and laugh louder; we dream; we watch one another slipping pieces of light through our eyes. In that universe, we fall in love daily with the new us we became after living yesterday. And we harvest petals of nights and stars to keep our passion and secrets hidden from the outer world.
In that dreamverse, all we need to do is BE!
To BE. Because there, as long as we „are,” we are enough. That is how we measure life: how much we are.
In today’s other mundane existence, we seek mainly to „have” or „do.” And we measure ourselves against that. But these words are spelled differently. They will never equal „be.” BE carries emotions, feelings, presence, and connection. DO and HAVE just put an imaginary equal sign between us and some action or products. And that’s often far from who we are.
To access that cosmos, we must let ourselves BE whatever we want. That is the path to the heaven of dreams and being…
Just wondering what you would be if you could be whatever you want to be.
