What if ....

What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed?
And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven
and there plucked an strange and beautiful flower?
And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand?
Ah, what then?
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

What if the line between reality and imagination disappears one day...
What if the rational decides to merge with the irrational...
What if life gives us an option of a world beyond thought...
Will we be happy to try it ... or let it rot away in indecision and apprehension...
Will we jump at the offer ... or be sad on not being prepared...
Will we be daring enough to risk it all ...
Be prepared to be unprepared...Plan not to plan ...
And just flow with the current ... through the adventure of life...

Even if.....
They will destroy it
Even if.....
They will redraw the line...
Even if...
They will kill you...
Even if...
There is no IF.....

Dear Srijit,

Its very easy to say theres no if ... but that is the usual way thoughts proceed; at least mine :D .... Sometime in future i might move beyond the rigmarole of 'IF' :) .. Till then just a snippet of my thought process....

Dear ethos .. :)

Thanx for the comment... does make me realize i have improved even if just by a fraction :D

The if is born in your mind and the day you understand the bigger meaning of life that if will not be seen anywhere. The dimension of the world beyond our thoughts is not present in any of the books and we will never be given this if.. because this if is a choice which is available to us right now and we either reject it or accept it depends on us.
