What are we doing here in earth life? is this all real isn't it a thing like dream ? is there a life after this life?

Ever since i was a child i somehow knew it is a mystery it has infinity mysteries in it self in what we called a life. most of experiences and discoveries
are for someone something that has this mysterious object we called Brain. All of our lives we tried to find something that we don't know is exists or even
sometimes we don't even know what we have what is hopeful to get in a living thing life is love, passion, anger, happiness and a lot more but all of them
are feelings that we do have in our self's already we just wait for situations to spark those feelings. lets see sadness or cry like someone that you love
pass away it will make you cry sad or in a deep sorrow or even you knew that this would happen but it isn't gonna change the situation's scene your feelings
and all. what if something good comes up and goes away will it make you happy for in a bit of time or will it make you sad? lets see you wanted a Ferrari and you
get it one day your happy your riding it touching it having felling of having it hours later you woke up it was a dream but you were happy while you were having felling of having it but you want it in a reality so you can have it for a longer time and be happy for a longer time but even if you get it your gonna lose it or let it go one day
so was that time while you were dreaming was not enough time of happiness for you?

For most of the time we i had a dreams last night how do i know cause i woke up from it it was for a short time and now i am here in reality for a longer time. So the life we are living now will not be here i mean we are not going to live forever so maybe when die we weak up some where where we have a longer period of time life so is it also a dream that we are living?

  • Dec 20 2011: Junaid, I believe we are here on Earth to enjoy each other and all the freedom and resources available to us. That's why flowers and trees are pleasant to behold. That's why human conversation and hugs feel good. All we need to do is act and speak in purely positive ways and we become a part of co-creating a happy world for all of humanity. In order to accomplish this, we must release the negative brainwashing we may have received through our societies, religions, parents, ancestors. It is up to us to make the world the way we want it to be. Fortunately, we all have adequate freedom and resources to have powerfully positive impacts upon many people today. Let's do it.

      Dec 21 2011: 1) thanks for you're answer. I know how humans do things on earth i have some sort of same vision as you about being positive and we can change the way we are living now or our societies, but answer that you have give is related to my question feelings . Its that all of our life its all about happiness and sadness or emotions we most of them we already know would happen like some of ours friends or family we know they are going to die but its when that happen we cry we have this emotion of sadness in our self if we already knew this would happen why can't we cry or be sad for now and when that happens we don't show any emotions

      2) why can't we be happy from the things we see in our dreams like some times we see we have a big house or a car or anything that we want we sometimes see that we have that thing in our dream we r happy while we r in dream but when we wakes up we know that it was just a dream and we don't have that thing anymore
      so my point here is this that this life we are living is not forever so why do we want things here or even if we have that thing after something we ourself will let go that thing and will want something els
      • Dec 21 2011: Junaid, perhaps we choose to be happy. Perhaps much of our lives, our perceptions, our feelings and more are chosen by us consciously or subconsciously. When you awaken tomorrow morning, tell yourself that you are going to co-create a happy, positive, productive day together with everyone you interact with. Death is a natural part of life. It only happens on one day of our lives. Why waste time dwelling on it? Dwell on the control and freedom and resources you now possess that can cause happiness for you and everyone you encounter......on all of these many days that you have to enjoy and to cause happiness for others. I respect you for expressing your true thoughts and feelings. HAPPY TODAY!

          Dec 22 2011: Thanks for you're wishes i am a average person who goes to a job every day has family. I see dreams almost every night and and some how i figure out that its a dream then i think of something to do that i cannot do in real life i failed to do it and in just struggling to do it i gets up from dream so i have this felling that drams are just a reflection of life what we have already seen .
          another thing bothers me most is soul how do we know that we have souls connected our body
          with and i also have the felling of there is a god cause all of these things that are fascinating and out of our mind to understand cannot happen by them selfs i now have some understanding of it and will get to it once i have more understating of it.
