Wellspring

It is sometimes very difficult to distinguish dreams from reality. What is a dream?
Oblivion or flight? A dream is in common with love, which, without a choice, can suddenly take possession of everyone.
Love is invisibly present in everything: in the burning of a candle, the trembling of a petal, the whisper of the wind or awe
butterfly wings ... Failure to nowhere, fall into eternity, infinity soaring ...
A layer of problems and everyday accumulations of worries, suffering, expectations.
But suddenly: immersion in oneself, in one’s essence, in one’s original.
And separation: dizziness, drop, soaring, immersion in the freshness of dew, moisture, spring ...
Finally: enlightenment, purification, clarity of thought, the joy of existence.
And then: flight again, merging and dissolving in eternity!
