When I was in Hawaii and stayed at a hotel with my sister and her husband, I slept outside on the patio while they slept in their air-conditioned room. They thought I was nuts, but I was just so in love with the fresh outdoor air that it didn't matter. It's great that you sleep with good air circulation... and S.D. has such wonderful weather for that!!!
I always sleep with the windows wide open too, with no screen either and bugs and all. In fact, there's this one little mosquito that keeps me half awake all night long, buzzing 'round my ears. I think it's the same mosquito every night... that blood suc*** knows where the highest quality blood is to be found. :-)
Yes, this really just a dream... and here's what I meditate on to keep me sane in such an insane world:
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily merrily merrily
Life is but a dream.
You can row only your boat, not someone else's. Change can only come from within. We can't change the world, only ourselves.
Gently down the stream... No use in stressing over life.
Merrily merrily merrily merrily ... At any given moment, we have the ability to choose to be happy and joyful. It's a lot easier to do when you realize that...
Life is but a dream. If this is true, then Being a Lucid Dreamer totally Rockzzz!
It's a gentle reminder to not take it all too seriously, and that I am a thought of God, and that this reality I am experiencing is a dream fabric of God that vanishes every night when I close my eyes and drift off back to the Bliss from whence I sprung.
But seriously... there is a larger "game" that is afoot than meets the eye. We are the Cosmic Dreamers, the Reality Makers, the Game Players. Life is the playing field, and like the game "Simms", there are game "cheats". It's up to us to find them to better enjoy this game of Life.
One "cheat" I use that you already know about is the "Unstoppable Immune System" cheat. I'm around people who get sick, but I don't (Praise the Lord!). I almost feel that it's unfair... but, hey, I've earned it. How cool is that to have an Unstoppable Immune System that can react faster than any pathogen can mutate? To never fall ill again? Rock on!
I'm working on more "cheats" to make life a little bit easier and more fun. But whooaaa.... I started off talking about open windows and here's where I am... I guess you're not the only one that can ramble on...
It's funny you mention about being such a teen-ager... It's great to always be young at heart, no matter how many times you've circled the sun. It would be a a lot of fun to hang out and relax and talk and laugh and share the joy of life together. When I was in my early twenties, most of my friends were people in their 30's. I still have those friends, but now that I'm in my 30's, most of my new friends that I really enjoy being with are people in their early 20's or younger. What comes around goes around!
Good night, Papi. I enjoy reading your blog. You have such honesty and sweetness that's very refreshing.
