Do you accept fully Ruiz’ statement that humans are dreaming all the time? Write about your awareness and/or acceptance of Ruiz’ “dream of the planet” and your own domestication.
Unless you have read this book, you might not fully understand the term “dream” as Ruiz comprehends it. He is not talking about dreaming in the sense of during sleep.
I cannot disagree with his belief. We have created this ‘reality’ in which we live. The farther away humanity as a whole becomes separated from the Creator, God, Higher Power, Source, or the word of your choice, the more we live in an illusion of who we are and from where we came. We lose our connection to our Soul or Spirit. We lose our ‘Life Force’. We lose our ‘Energy’. We lose our ‘Light’.
I believe this is why there is so much chaos in our world. We have forgotten that everything we are, everything we have comes from our Creator. Our ‘domestication’ begins at birth when we are taught what our parents or caregivers ‘dream’ is the correct way to live, the correct way to view the world.
We can continue to live in this illusion we have been given or we can begin our own search for our true Soul. No other person can give us OUR connection to our Creator. We have to search and find for ourselves that umbilical cord that is connected to our Creator while we are here on earth. When we finally find that connection, we transform into who we are really meant to be. We find that our main purpose in this life is to create love for all things and spread peace. We learn to recognize that there are billions of umbilical cords coming from the same Source—that everything is connected and alive.
I cannot pretend to comprehend all the wisdom of Don Miguel Ruiz. I agree with the four agreements he presents in this book. I have read this book and continue to re-read it because every time I do, I learn more how to live as our Creator intends for us to live.
I believe that we learn to live as a ‘Soul’ from many sources. Long ago I dropped the illusion that there is only one source of wisdom. This works for me, but it may not work for others. I believe we need to find whatever works for each of us to live with integrity and in the Light of our Creator.
