Waking Life - The Nature of Existance

           This is a short clip from the brilliant film "Waking Life" by Richard Linklater. This deep existential clip compares our lives to dreams by asking whether we are really awake, or are we really just asleep in life's waiting room. This metaphor of 'life's waiting room' suggests that our life on earth may just be a pretense to our next spiritual stage.
           Living life with the infinite possibility we experience in our dreams allows us to encounter obstacles with confidence and optimism. Comparing life to a dream we did not get paid for, suggests that we need to take life with ease, and love every day, rather than having a cluttered mind of worry and anxiety.

The best awakenings start with pleasant dreams.

*Special thanks to Phil for recommending this film
