Is Life But a Dream?

Jay Michaelson

If you're still hoping for nonduality to cohere, to make your life better, to make you happier, you're still clinging to spiritual materialism. Better for it all to be for nought. Surrender even the hope of progress, and progress will happen on its own.

Very good question.

To a certain extent, it definitely is.

Quote:And this life of the world is only amusement and play !. Verily, the home of the Hereafter, that is the (real) life indeed (i.e. the eternal life in Paradise that will never end), if only they knew.
Quran 29:64

Check out the following video :

When you talk about surrendering, in Islam it means surrendering to Allah (swt) and ride the wave of the destiny that Allah (swt) has decreed for you, like a champion surfer riding the wave under his surfing board.

In the same way trying to go faster or slower than the wave carrying him the surfer is assured to crash, rebelling against one's destiny guarantees one a whole host of psychological and physical ills.

Go ask those chasing the illusions of this life, be it big houses, be it beautiful women (who one day will be old, bad smelling and all wrinkled), be it big bank accounts...etc. They all have one thing in common : their heart is not at peace at all, and they will never be as long as they are thirsty for the illusions of this life.

Now, on a personal level, I haven't yet learned to ride the wave of my destiny. I am , the surfer, often crashing .
