It is only when we wake from dreams that we know we have been dreaming. Similarly, this life may be realized as a dream only when we awake in Cosmic Consciousness. Dreams are actually lessons in the working of Cosmic Consciousness. They come to man for a reason; their purpose is to awaken in Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams a realization of the dream nature of the universe and of the method of its operation.
The sages of India since ancient times have spoken of the universe as a materialization of the thought of God. It is easy to say, of course, that this universe is a dream. But the verisimilitude of "life" in our everyday experiences makes it nearly impossible for us to believe that the world is nothing more than a cosmic dream.
It is necessary that we first develop mind power in order to be able to realize that the universe is actually made out of the thought of God and that, like a dream, it is structurally evanescent. We know that thoughts are invisible. But in dreamland they may be made visible by the force of energy. So originally this whole universe—in Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams form of God's thoughts—was invisible, hidden within the cosmic stream of consciousness.
Only when those thoughts were crystallized by God's cosmic intelligent vibration, or energy, did they become visible to us as the material universe. So, although it is difficult to realize that this cosmic dream universe is merely a dream, we should endeavor to think along this line.
Many practical benefits will come to us from such a true understanding of the physical world. To illustrate, let us say that a sleeping man dreams he is a great and powerful warrior; that he goes to war, is shot, and lies dying. Just as he is feeling very sad, he suddenly wakes up.
He laughs at his dream fears as he realizes he is not really a warrior, nor is he dying. In "real" life one may have the same kind of experience.

In order to realize that all the happenings of this world are dream experiences, we should learn how to visualize our thoughts—how to recharge them with the energy of concentration until they become visible manifestations. Proper visualization by Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams exercise of concentration and will power Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams us to materialize thoughts, not only as dreams or visions in the mental realm, but also as experiences in the material realm.
Starting with the power of his Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams imagination, man has built wonderful scientific devices and a marvelous material civilization. Inventions are the result of the materialization of human thought. Many people try to achieve something in the realm of thought, but they give up when difficulties arise. Only those persons who have visualized their thoughts very strongly have been able to manifest them in outward form. Everything on earth had its birth in the factory of the mind—either in God's mind or in man's mind.
Actually, man cannot think an "original" thought. He can only borrow God's thoughts and become an instrument to materialize Andante Mi Mineur - Evangelos Et Liza* - J.S.
Bach* / A. Corelli* / A. Marcello* / D. Scarlatti* / A. The relationship between thought and matter is very subtle. Suppose you see a Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams pillar, and try, by the power of thought, to remove the pillar. You cannot do that. In spite of what you think, the pillar is still there.

Difficulties come to us in order to awaken us to the realization that this life Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams a dream. This lesson we all have to learn. Then we can understand why there is so much Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams in everything in the world: some people are poor, some are rich; some are healthy and some are sick.
Although it may seem to be a terrible Gratitude - Deuter - Cosmic Dreams cruel game, the justification of the complications of life is that all of it is only a dream. Take it as such. If you can go to a movie and see a picture of war and suffering, and afterward say, "What a wonderful picture!
