Mountains of the Moon…

*

By considering dream consciousness

a higher state of being

we are forced to imagine

a whole range of conscious experience

beyond that which might

otherwise be conceived.

*

How should this landscape

be approached?

*

How can such mountainous

terrain be scaled?

*

We must regard mankind as a seed.

*

As both the proponent and the vehicle

of a qualitative change in being.

*

Let the seed grow into a tree

that its branches might shelter

those brightly plumed birds of paradise

for a space and, perchance, encourage them to roost.

  1. I think the dream state allows us to be the player in ALL of the scenes, thereby enabling us to resolve issues we face daily. It can seem a peaceful dream, or it can seem terrifying, and that might depend on how important a particular issue is to us. For example, we may not feel terrified thinking about a task we have to do vs something like a relationship issue. So yes, the dream state is likely a higher degree of consciousness because it allows the mind to free itself of the confinements we experience every day in our minds and outside our own strengths. Yes, I would say that it allows us to rise above our beliefs about ourselves and others, and hence, is a stronger consciousness than our waking consciousness.
