Sometimes our thoughts act like dream glasses. When we have them on, we see dream children, dream husband, dream wife… We can live in a dream present for a dream future. Without knowing it we are coloring everything, putting our spin on it all. While things in the dream may change and give the illusion of being vivid and real, it is still a dream we are caught in. But if we take off the glasses, maybe, just maybe, we might see a little more accurately what is actually here.
