I was amidst a green land, in a pleasant climate, looking around the very richness of nature. But some how, was not in a good mood. Irrelevant thoughts were bothering my mind and I could not make out what exactly was I thinking. Suddenly, I saw an object moving a bit away.

An umbrella captured my attention with its attractive outlook. It possessed the colours of rainbow and was progressing in the direction of wind. With out my knowledge, I began running behind it as if my sole aim was to catch that umbrella. My vision was so much fixed that I did not even worried where was I going.
In the mean time, I came to know that Umbrella was not proceeding rapidly with wind, but was in a constant speed!

All of a sudden it picked up pace and got off from me.. away…, away and disappeared from my vision. There I stood, tired and disappointed . A glance around shocked and astonished me! That was a barren land. The green, the beauty everything was gone. I knelt on ground scared and lost! At the place where the umbrella moved off from my sight, I heard a voice , “ You always ran for things you never actually needed at that point of life.. An umbrella where there was no rain and sunshine! You can’t see the worthyness you were provided with . Now here you are, empty handed, in a place which offers nothing but dry thoughts, dry as its grass..”
I suddenly opened my eyes…

It had been 5 years to this dream. That was the first time I heard conversations as such in dream that became lenghthier in my succeeding dreams.

Great Aspirations!!!

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

It was night with dim light. I heard some sound and guessed, ‘might be some one pounding stone.’ Unwondering my presence in an unfamiliar land, I went in search of the source. Finally, I found a lady carving in stone. I got closer and noticed that it was a 'face'. Meanwhile, she greeted and offered me to sit on a nearby rock …

I felt strange, but nodded to her wish on narrating stories. She began, “A man assumed himself as highly ambitious. Even he did nothing much noticeable yet, had utmost belief that something great would be performed in his life time. He spent time looking for great things, he could work upon… One day he got a ‘wheel’. That was life! It suggested him to handle it as he wishes.He didn’t ponder much beyond, but started running behind, moving it with hands. Even not minding the route, road, he just went up as it proceeded.
Now, wheel caught up all the mud and dirt and there stood a man instead. Pausing his speed, he uttered, ‘You thought of doing great things, but never kept in mind that things which are precious are considered great, But great things can’t be done with a sense of making things great. You failed, when, was provided with ‘Life’ itself to handle. Now it’s all over and time is up’. He disappeared.”

I was listening with great wonder and she continued… “ Another, highly aspired as the first, was bestowed with an empty book and a pen as ‘life’. He could write one page per a day, even if he wouldn’t the page turns the next day. As he was a ‘great soul’, he can’t write anything non sense! So he went exploring profound aspects. The days went on, but he didn't write a letter! When only the last page was left, something clicked, while he was about to note, the book vanished and a man appeared in place. He stated, “Great things are performed after great mistakes. until you understand the greatness or importance of mistakes, you can’t ever make any thing greater out of your knowledge!"

with no pause she started another story… “ It’s life of a greedy man. He brought home and piled every thing considered 'precious'. He was busy buying things than looking those dumped in house. One day when he returned, a man stopped him at the door and yelled, ‘No matter what you brought today, there is no place to keep a pin inside! You focused only on 'desires' but not on the capacity of your home. All the precious stacked inside are now for no use! Now, how can I allow you to step in? All your accomplishments made you stand out of your own home!’” After that, she challenged me to narrate one…I went dumb….
