I know that we need to live in the *NOW* (not dwelling on the past, nor anxious about the future), but I've had 2 people close to me lose their spouses recently. They're lives will change abruptly. Is it advisable to think about what we might want to do down the road? Possibly... as long as we don't dwell on it or have it rumbling around in our heads at bedtime.
What do you think?
"Creating" our elder life seems like something we need to think about. I had a dream the night before last.... one of those good dreams where I was on a beach by the ocean and I was running effortlessly and with quiet abandon. It was cool and the breaking waves were rough. I felt so *free* - love that feeling and it doesn't occur often. So happy these last 2 days as the feeling has not completely faded yet. I've had this dream before... used to consider it more than a dream, an almost out of body experience. Now I just consider it a gift.
I want to think that these *dreams* are telling me something... perhaps that this is what life is like after death? Perhaps without the frailties of the human body, our souls will run free? Perhaps being one with the universe is another form of freedom? And possibly one we experienced before (before birth into our human form) and these dreams are lost memories?
Guess I'd better stop this thread before people start worrying about my sanity. These thoughts do occur to me - but I don't dwell on them. Mull them over for a bit... then get on with it. But I do believe that we *create* our lives... so taking the time occasionally to take stock and make changes accordingly does seem like a good idea. I'm just saying....
