The Dream of Death

Cryptic Letter of the Week


Death is "the dream at the end of time"?

The end of time is the ending of thought. Thought creates time. The "dream," all imagery and desire, are thought processes, are "made of" thought. When thought and time end --- which happens in meditation, enlightenment, love and death --- there is awakening from the dream we call "life".

What manner of dream is the state we call death?

Just finished reading the Cataract Blues. Found this while looking for "more post operation cataract" information.

Yes, I had my left eye done last Thursday, and yesterday, Sunday, was the first day I could really see anything but a fog. I go back to the doctor tomorrow.

I am writing this using my glasses with my left lens punched out. Your description is extremely accurate. I also appreciated the LARGE PRINT.

I am an engineer, and had been wearing trifocals, the executive type. They are sooooooo heavy, that I wear a band around my head to hold them up. At least that worked.

I am going to the library tomorrow to get one of those large print books. I also like to read.

Well, would appreciate a note, telling me how you are doing.

Yes, everyone I spoke to is happy and smiling that they had it done. My doctor did fifteen that day. The next morning we all sat in the office waiting for him to take a peek. Well fourteen people were just thrilled. Yes, I am the one person who couldn't see a thing.

You did brighten my day. Not much laughter here until tonight, when I read your well written description of the "CATARACT BLUES."

Subject: Cataract Surgery


You are an idiot.

I had cataract surgery and yes there are inconveniences initially --- well duh! You've just gone through an amazingly delicate operation on one of the most delicate organs in your body --- what did you expect ---wart removal????

It takes time. But you heal. Here it is a day after surgery and I can read and watch television without glasses. My vision is now 20/40. Before it was probably closer to 20/1000.

Stop misleading people, you fool. Get a real job.
