Sleeping And Dreaming Unaffected By Cannabis (Subjectively)
A lot of people say that Cannabis inhibits dreams. This is partly true, and partly false. What happens is that the mind simply watches it self while on Cannabis and becomes more aware of itself. This awareness brings about a quality of freshness to the mind, and the mind that has seen itself during it’s waking hours, it’s not forced to process the unprocessed experiences during sleep. This gives us a peaceful, relaxed and tranquil sleep.
We are not supposed to dream. We are supposed to be aware of our entire minds and meditate on the entire field of consciousness as described in my other article The Psychology of Meditation
On a half gram dab of Strawberry OG, I just found out and understood why I do not dream, and sometimes why I am unable to sleep an entire night. To watch the movement of thought as it moves and shifts about is the beauty of watching one’s own mind and the quantum waves of information as single thoughts in the quantum field of the psyche.
Sleeping is a biological phenomenon absolutely essential to the functioning of an organism. Dreams however, are not. We have been led to believe that we must dream or that if we do not dream, we’ll go insane. That’s only partly true.
See, dreams are a continuation of the waking mind. The mind is constantly seeking order from disorder. When we are unaware of ourselves and our own movements of thoughts and feelings, contradictions and emotions, the mind is forced to process this to find order within sleep.
However if we are totally aware of the entire contents of our consciousness, all the various and subtle movements of our own thoughts, our actions and reactions of emotions and feelings, we are no longer forced to process the waking hours during our sleep.
We are not supposed to dream
To watch the movement of thought and all of its happenings as they happen… you require no dreams because you have seen it all during your waking hours. And you can finally peacefully sleep, without dreams. Dreams are the continuation of our waking experience because the experience was not observed and processed as the mind needed it to be.
And if you can’t sleep, it’s because your mind is in disorder and cannot watch or understand this disorder because you didn’t observe the mind in the waking hours and exhaustion of the mind and body prevent further observation unless physical rest is achieved even without sleep after which one can observe the movement of thought and observe disorder.
For now, this is all I have. I must observe the shifting equilibrium of the mind and all the various actions and reactions of thought to one another.
