Eyelids to the Mind

I think I might be a little weird. Okay, those who know me know I’m weird … but I think I confirmed it.

A couple of weeks ago, when I dozed off — I like to do that at night while watching television — I noticed there was activity on the inside of my eyelids. There it was, Facebook images scrolling down the eyelid … the inside of my eyelid. Multitasking as I was, I was actually scrolling Facebook while watching television just before I dozed off. I could feel my hand using the non-existent mouse.

Now, I know I was dreaming, but the inside of my eyelids was a giant screen playing the images from my mind. It was soooo cool.

So, I thought I would investigate this phenomenon further. I paid attention to my eyelids as they started to droop. Sure enough, the lids served as that gigantic screen. There was the data scrolling endlessly after a computer session in Excel. There were images suddenly appearing on the inside of my eyelids. There were color bars and exploding stars and all sorts of visual stimulation … all playing out on the inside of my eyelids.

Unfortunately it doesn’t usually last long. I fall asleep very quickly so dreaming takes over. But those short power snoozes sure are enjoyable.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Self-trust is the first secret to success.
