Sometimes I lose myself so deep in self pity that I forget to daydream and really let my mind off its leash. Often it escapes at the wrong times and it gets me into trouble. Today though, after I'd showered and dressed myself, I just laid back down on my bed and stared at the ceiling. After awhile I closed my eyes and let my mind spontaneously create. I think if people did that on a regular basis, they'd really discover things about themselves.
When I close myself and just don't try to think about anything, my mind takes off on a million different random things. I see faces and places and ideas. Sometimes there are terrifying faces or monsters. Sometimes I imagine going on trips or I invent new lands. Sometimes lyrics or words will come to mind and just flow around connecting randomly. Sometimes they make sense, but mostly they don't. And it's okay.
I'm not super surprised when I lay in bed and try to sleep and suddenly gruesome images appear in my mind. I know that I've filled it with a lot of smut, but I forget what's in my brain. Laying there day dreaming and letting my brain free-roam helps me realize what's hiding there under the surface. What baffles me at times is that I recall being haunted by grotesque dreaming and out of control thoughts as a young child. And I hadn't ingested loads of violence and gore and whatnot back then. My parents kept us well guarded against that for years. But *shrug* who knows.
I think everyone is capable of daydreaming and imagining things, but some people come by it more naturally than others. I also think that it can be smashed out of people and lost if they allow it to be.
Anyways, I got pretty distracted writing this and I've forgotten where I was going with it......
