The other night I had a nightmare, it involved many snakes and me trying to survive. No need to say, it was pretty scary! I woke up sweating and my heart was racing. My body believed my dream was actually happening.
There is absolutely no difference during our daydreams.
When we are in our thoughts, worrying about past or future situations , our body believes we are having this experience NOW. It will react with a stress response no matter what is really happening in the moment. Our thoughts are telling a story and our body reacts to it.
For the body only the NOW moment is real.
It doesn`t make a difference whether we are actually living something or thinking about it. The body thinks it`s real.
Now every time we are stressing, worrying about a situation, the body thinks itself in danger, and will react accordingly. It goes without saying that we daily put a lot of stress on our body.
We need to become aware of what is happening, aware of what we are thinking.
What kind of story are you living?
Is that story real?
Or is it just a dream?
Don`t forget to wake up
and come back to the NOW
each moment be awake
each moment BE HERE
each moment BE NOW
Wake up from the dream of the mind
There is only one reality: NOW
