Dream or Reality

What is the difference between dream and reality?

What if your life up until now is just a dream because you don’t know the truth of reality?


Imagine you're an RPG hero. RPG is abbreviation of role playing game, a game where you role as a hero who's going to save the world. You're travelling around the world.
At first you travel just to see the outside world. But in the middle of your travelling you see something that many people believe is truth, is actually a fake truth.
So you're going to find the real truth, and tell the world about it. But it's not a simple task. Many people will trying to stop you.
And no one will believe what you're saying. But you'll keep forward no matter what happen. Until you're confronting the leader of the fake truth who is called god by his believers.
You finally can kill the god whom many believe he is immortal. And tell the world about it. And peace come to this world.

What if some of the above story is not only in the game? What if it is happening in this world?
Something that you believe since you're a child is actually only a fairytale.
So people of the world, find the truth, learn the truth, and tell the world about it.

Here's some question that you must contemplating:
1. What is life? Why you're live? Why you're born?
2. Why some people born rich, some people born poor. Some people born good-looking, some people born ugly. Some people born without defect / handicap, some people born with defect / handicap.
3. More extreme is some people born in rich, live in rich, die in rich. But some people born in poor, live in poor, die in poor.
4. Do you know the true meaning of "I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me" that maybe even the author of that song don't know?
5. Do you know the origin of these terminologies: the conqueror, the almighty, the all-seeing, the subjector of all to his wishes, the omnipotent, the maker, the creator, the supreme one, the controller, the origin of life, and father to all that have been and shall be.

Some answer of these question can be found in Buddhism in A Nutshell . This book is recommended for people who want to know what is Buddhism.

  1. In life it is all about the choices that we make and the things that we choose. Some people are born with some handicaps due to their karma. Everything in life is about our karma. We can never run and hide from it no matter what.

    Even when it comes to karma, we have slight control over it. It is because of the choices that we choose, actions we do, thoughts we have, and our speech, karma arises in ways that we will not know.

    This articles here really inspired me to think more before I make my choices. Hope it helps you too! http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/animals-vegetarianism/you-always-have-a-choicemake-the-right-one.html
