Ancient Jeremiah like other ancient writers does his best to tell man, reality is not what has been programmed into you.
Jeremiah wrote, “Do not listen to your dreams.” He says do not listen to the “…dreams which YOU have caused to dream.” What did Jeremiah mean? Lets find out…
A dream is a ‘series of images being absorbed in thought.’ And you are ‘absorbed’ when you give, ‘full attention.’ Think about your dreams, are they not real to you… as you dream? While in your ‘dream’, no one could convince you it was not reality? Your dream has your ‘full attention,’…and it is your NOW reality… and has no substance is not and present outside of your mind. It just seems to be.
A ‘dream’ is defined as a ‘deception.’ That means you are being ‘deceived,’ which means you are being ‘mislead by false appearances’ that you mistake for reality. When in fact the dreams, the false appearances have no substance.
Appearance means, the ‘outward impressions. ‘Impressions’ are, ‘effects produced in the mind.’It is from the dreams you have caused, that produces the outward impressions, Impressions you take as something real and present.
The dream is not reality, and modern Einstein understood this when he told us, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
Do I think life is a sleeping dream?
Do I? Yes.
