I Close My Eyes And Watch As I Disappear

Updated on April 26, 2013

We All Have The Power

To let our minds be free

To roam the world and search and find

Anything and everything that makes us happy

We think we have to keep busy to get things done

Then why is it when we go to bed we are at peace

We seem refreshed and so relaxed

It seems like all lifes troubles stop

Only to continue the next day

Maybe if we spent more time dreaming our life would be different

Who knows if our dreams are the real reasons we feel so satisfied

If our life is just an illusion and when we are asleep

That is when life really takes place

Our minds live by expressing so many thoughts

What if all the thoughts we think when we are asleep

Are just waiting for us to act

Then as we make progress more and more dreams are revealed

So we can live finding our utmost passion

Many say we hold the secrets to this world in our minds eye

Where we can see things before they happen

Help others and live better lives

They say we only use less than ten percent of our brain

Maybe we can learn to use all our brain when we are asleep

Not when we are awake that would be an original thought

Some of the greatest minds over centuries all believe in meditation

Where we can quiet the mind and learn to see things diffferently

It takes practice and who wants to practice something we don't know to be true

What if ?

      Dream On,

      Your name is an amazing combination to me of a mantra and a favorite Aerosmith song.

      I was drawn to this piece because of the value I place on Guided Imagery.

      I believe our dreams and thoughts during sleep are meaningful and come from our soul...when the busyness of the day hits, things can go along more rotely.

      Thank you for this lovely introduction and I look forward to checking out more of your work.

      Some of my most memorable moments happen when I am doing nothing. Happiness doesn't require me to be on the go, always seeking out new areas...sometimes it requires a quite evening on the front porch.

      The state of sleeping is an amazing one. If I can just drift off I'm fine. If something disturbs me before I just drift off I'm up and I can't sleep. However I must say that if I feel exhausted or stressed or any other emotion when I get into my bed everything is just fine in my world.

      kidscrafts We have so much more to learn about our brain and the power of our thoughts.True there are bad people who do bad things.What is important is that most people are good and sharing that makes the world special and worth living.I am going to try to sleep and accomplish more too.The sky is the limit.Thanx so much.

      Deep thoughts Dream-On! It seems that indeed we use only a fraction of our brain. The sad part some people use it for bad purposes :-(

      I am pretty sure that our mind continues to work when we are asleep. Often, I wake up with the solution of the problem I had the day before. May be I should sleep more to accomplish more ;-)
