Dream to Read

What you read is as just as important as what you experience. Reading fiction permits the mind to let go of reality and envision fantasies. Reading non-fiction forces the mind to grapple with harsh realities.

The reading mind makes no difference between real world and the make-believe. Words create visualizations that the mind conceives as conscious dreams.

Reading inspires you to experience the real-world in order to validate what you read. But sometimes it’s better to live vicariously through the pages. Reading is an experience all by itself.
