Alan Watts: Yaşamanın Hayali

Belgeselin orijinal metni;
If you awaken from this illusion
and you understand that black implies white
self implies other, life implies death
or shall I say death implies life.
You can feel yourself. Not as a stranger in the world.
Not as something here on probation.
Not as something that has arrived here by fluke.
But you can begin to fell your own existence
as absolutely fundamental.
I’m not trying to sell you on this idea in the sense of converting you to it.
I want you to play with it.
I want you to think of its possiblities.
I’m not trying to prove it.
I’m just putting it forward as a possibility of life to think about.
So then…
Let’s suppose that you were able every night, to dream any dream you wanted to dream. And that you could for example have the power within one night to dream seventy five years of time.
Or any length time you wanted to have.
And you would naturally, as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure.
And after several nights of seventy five years of total pleasure each
you would say “Well that was pretty great!”
“But now let’s – let’s have a surprise.”
“Let’s have a dream which isn’t under control”.
Where something is going to happen to me,  but I don’t what it’s going to be”.
And you would dig that And come out of that you’d say “Wow that was a close shave wasn’t it?”
Then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further and further gambles to what you would dream.
Finally you would dream where you are now.
You would dream the dream of living the life that actually living today.
That would be within the infinite multiplicity of choices that you would have.
Of playing that you weren’t God.Because the whole nature of the God in you according to this idea, is to play that he’s not.
So in this idea then, everybody is fundamentally the ultimate reality, not God in a politically kingly sense, but God the sense of being the self.
The deep down basics, whatever there is.
And you’re all that. Only your pretending your not.
