When I lie down to sleep, in a busy day’s schedule, my workaholic heart would not listen to droop down. My conscience has to advice him that there is nothing wrong to take a nap. It would than boil down its craving, think about the empty finality, and accompany my soul to travel into the world adjacent to our universe. I won’t dare to go far.
Every nap in my afternoon had given me very good a rest. They have taken me out into the alien land and brought me back swiftly without even a jerk. But today’s was different. I suffered brutal pain and agony. I slept after a tiresome research, flipping every page and clicking every link on the website, and finding no reliable resources.
In the dream, I had once again gotten up for the research. There was no computer on my desk (in reality too). So I went to borrow from my neighbor and got one (which I always do). Even as I was working, the computer broke into two pieces. And there started my worry. I knew that I would have to buy a new computer for my neighbor as he would not accept that. Where would I bring the huge amount of money when I have no money to make my ends meet? How will I pay him? I cried incessantly and resorted to finding solutions. I envisioned my mother scolding me for being careless. However, when my neighbor returned I was asked, bluntly, to pay him Nu 35,000 and take the scrape for free.
I ran my hands into the pocket only to find Nu 500. I was much saddened to think of my state of being penniless. I thought of borrowing from my relatives in Thimphu but realized instantly that I had none. I took a leave from my institute, RIM, and went for begging. I was wearing a brown hat with a walking stick to chase away the dogs, if any, on my way. I came to a beautiful house and hardly had I explained him my failure and trouble when he yelled at me, “Go away”.
Hearing the yell, I woke up with a sudden jerk and looked for my stick around to throw at him. But I was taken to laughter when I realized that it was a mere dream. The yell had come from the people playing Table Tennis near my door.
I became so happy for I need not have to pay for the computer. I wished if every mistake of mine could be a dream just like this. How happy you become to realize that your sufferings are nothing but weird actions in the dream. To celebrate that, I penned down this the moment I woke up.
