Big Dream Before the Big Void

They call life a big dream, an extended episode of exploratory consciousness before endless nothingness. It's real in that we live it and can make almost any possibility come true, but then we die and it's all gone forever, like the dreams we have each night that tempt us with great events and enactments that fade away by morning, unrealized.

Life is longer than dreams and shares a reality with other people who remain here at least temporarily, though our lives are of the same ephemerality.

This realization about the preciousness of our short but open existence should color all of our actions and hopes. There is no recompense for holding back or chance to do better next time, but instead we should always make the most of each moment and take it as far as our imagination and vitality can carry it, making the universe larger, more beautiful, and more profound at every instance.

It's a dream, but it's real. Dream big and enrich the world while you can.
