The Drama of Drama

“Seeking out drama in our lives is natural. It is in our DNA. We are always looking for drama.”

Those were the words spoken by noted Quantum Physicist, Dr. Fred Alan Wolf. Dr. Wolf is probably my favorite author in this fascinating field that explores what is occurring at the sub-atomic levels, and how this transfers to our visible world.

Something about the above, however, did not ring true. Yes, many people are addicted to drama – problems with the neighbors, crisis with work, arguments with their spouses etc. If it does not currently exits, we create it and the list is seemingly endless.  TV “drama shows” are often the most popular, reinforcing Dr. Wolf’s quantum theory.

I think this for the most part is accurate. Many are addicted to drama. It makes them feel something, even if the feelings are uncomfortable or “negative.” It is a substitute for the monotony and boredom they are experiencing. I have seen thousands of patients over the years and there is no doubt that monotony and boredom have caused or contributed to more illnesses (and injuries) than every virus, parasite and bacteria combined.

There is a segment of the population that does not enroll into the “drama DNA.” They in fact, have found the antidote to drama. It is the same antidote to boredom and monotony — enrolling in their dreams. Dreams have the power to transform lives. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said it best: “Dreams are illustrations… from the book your soul is writing about you.” The ego writes the drama script. The soul writes the dream script.

When dreams are present, there is simply no room for drama. All focus and energy is perfectly blended together in waste-free movements toward your dream. The end result is a journey of joy. Drama cannot exist here, the way darkness cannot exist in face of light.

Disengage from the destruction of drama and begin to live your dreams. Your truth awaits you.  As Thoreau said:

Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.
