DREAM | Alan Watts & Superposition

Listen, dream | Alan Watts & Superposition

If you awaken from this illusion,
and you understand that
black implies white,
self implies other,
life implies death. 
Or shall I say,
death implies life?
You can feel yourself.
Not as a stranger in the world.
Not as something here on probation.
Not as something
that has
arrived here by fluke.
But you can begin to feel your own existence
as absolutely fundamental.

What you are basically,
deep, deep down,
far, far in,
is simply
the fabric and structure of existence itself.

So, say in Hindu mythology,
They say that the world
is the drama of God.
God is not something in Hindu
mythology with a white beard,
that sits on a thrown
and that has royal prerogatives.
God in Indian mythology
is the SELF.
Satsitananda.
Which means
Sat - that which is.
Chi - that which is consciousness.
That which is ananda, is bliss.
And in other words,
that what exists,
reality itself
IS
GORGEOUS.
It is the plenum,
the fullness of total joy.
Woweee!
And all those stars if you look out in to the sky
is a firework display
like you see on the 4th of July,
which is a great occasion for celebration.
The Universe is a celebration.
It is a firework show
to celebrate that existence IS.
Wowee.
And they say
but however,
there is no point in just
sustaining bliss. 
Let's suppose that you were able
Every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream.
And that you could,
for example,
have the power

within one night
to dream 75 years of time.

Or any length of time you wanted to have.
And you would,
naturally
as you began on this adventure of dreams,

you would fulfill all your wishes.
You would have
every kind of pleasure
you could conceive.

And after several nights
of 75 years of total pleasure each,

you would say
"Well, that was pretty great."

But now let's have a surprise.
Let's have a dream which isn't under control.
Where something is going to happen to me
that I don't know when it's going to be.

And uh, you would dig that
and come out of that and say
"Wow that was a close shave, wasn't it?"

Then you would get more and more adventurous
And you would make further and further out gambles
as to what you would dream.
And finally you would dream
where you are now.

You would dream the dream
of living the life that you are actually living today.

That would be within the infinite multiplicity
of choices you would have.

Of playing
that you weren't God.
Because the whole nature of the godhead,
according to this idea,
is to play that he is not.
The first thing he says to himself is
"Man, get lost."
Because he gives himself away.
The nature of love is self abandonment.
Not clinging to ones self.
Throwing yourself out.
As in for example in basketball,
were always getting rid of the ball.
You say to the other fellow,
"Have a ball."
See?
And uh, that keeps things moving,
That's the nature of life.
So in this idea then, everybody is fundamentally
the ultimate reality.

Not God in a politically kingly sense.
But God in the sense of being the self,
the deep down basic whatever there is.

And you're ALL that,
only you're pretending you're not.
