Daydreaming: just another illusion

Sometimes you just stare out of the window and see a bright blue sky, plants and trees slowly blowing in the breeze and you just can’t help but get lost in the moment. It’s almost like a trance of elegance (if such a sing even existed…). I would find myself staring out of my window for long a duration of time and not know why I was doing it in the first place. I guess nature itself is very captivating to me. I can’t help but admire all the small details that the world has to offer. It’s like all the bad things and the bad people in the world have suddenly vanished, my fears swept away by the breeze. Everything is harmonious until… well, you snap out of it I guess.

That’s when it all comes rushing back to you, the sudden realization that you were lost in a world of illusion, a world of peace. I mean, if you take a look at this world, you can’t really say that we’ve achieved peace. The truth is as long as there’s hate in the world, there will always be conflict. It’s how the human race is and I know for a fact, there isn’t much hope that we’ll achieve world peace. Everyone has different values and beliefs and some people force their beliefs down people. Not really a peaceful world right?

Perhaps daydreaming was an inbuilt mechanism for us humans to escape reality just for a moment and live in that world of peace. That’s the way I view it at least, not sure about you guys. A world without conflict, where everyone can get along and be liked for who they are as a person. That’s the kind of world that I’d want to live in. Unfortunately the only way for us to travel there is through the illusion of daydreaming and our dreams at night. They seem so real at the time but they crumble when you wake from them.


Perhaps, someday… the human race will achieve true peace. I highly doubt it though. It’s just another illusion waiting to be shattered.
