I woke up and there they all were. Pinkie, Rainbow, Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy and Twilight. I felt my heartbeat speed up immensely. I approached Twilight Sparkle, who looked up at me.

"Please," I began, "tell me that this is heaven. Please tell me that I died and now I'm here with you..."

Twilight, with an understanding and sympathizing look, replied, "I'm afraid not."

I knew what that meant, but I didn't want to accept it. "Have I transcended between our worlds? Am I here to stay?"

Twilight shook her head.

"Then this is a dream," I said weakly. And then I felt a great weight strike me all over my body. I couldn't contain myself. I fell to my knees and began to weep, hugging Twilight's neck.

She let this continue for a short while, and the spectacle had aroused the other ponies' interests. They approached, but I just clung to Twilight's neck.

"Why is it that you wish you were dead?" she questioned. "Why do you want to leave everything to be with us so badly?"

I attempted to stop and look at her. She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. "There's nothing for me when I wake up. The world is cruel and hard. All my life has become a string of tasks leading to the end of each day, and I'm no closer to achieving anything worth while than when I wake up at the beginning. The people all jeer and scorn and treat each other with all kinds of hate, and I don't want to do this anymore.

"I look at your world and my heart goes out to you. I feel happy again. Happy that there is a place, if only in our imaginations, where everypony is nice to each other. Where everypony cares. I want to give up. I want to be here..."

Twilight looked down at me and gave a small smile. "The fact that we even exist is testament to the decency of humankind," she began, "We may only be in your imaginations, but that in itself is proof that the world desires a place in which everypony can truly be themselves and be accepted. The reason the arduous tasks you complete are seemingly meaningless is because you connect no meaning to them. Look into your heart and find what you truly want. Now look around. If you want a world like this, you have to make it happen. People are cruel because they assume the worst in others as you are doing now. How many times have you turned your back on a peer because no pony was there for you when you needed them?

"We are here to help you. We are here to teach you. The way you long for us is proof that we are doing our jobs. It may hurt, but our purpose is to show you that something is missing and that you can find it."

"I don't think I can live much longer without you," I replied with tears running down my cheek, "I can just stay here. I can stay in my room and sleep and dream forever if I have to."

Rainbow Dash came forward and spoke: "You don't have to live without us because we're always with you. Every time you feel the warmth of a good deed. Every time you help another pony in need, that's us in your heart..."

"...And every time you see somepony else extend an itty-bitty, little-tiny smidgen of kindness to the world, that's us too!" Pinkie interrupted.

I smiled halfheartedly.

"Now look here, Sugarcube," began Applejack, "You can't just stay home and sleep yer life away. Imagine how that makes us look. Yuh gotta go out and put all those lessons about friendship we've given yuh to good use."

I didn't know what to say, so I just sat there on the ground. Rarity walked toward me and I continued staring at the ground.

"Darling," she started, "you need to buck up! When you wake up you need to look around and see everything that your unhappy with because if you cannot... well, how can you make it better? You can make the world beautiful."

I started to choke up. "But I can't. It's... It's too much to endure."

"You can do anything," Fluttershy piped up, "You have a voice, you just have to find it."

I don't know why, but after hearing Fluttershy muster up the courage to speak to a stranger, my tears stopped and I began to believe. "I can try everypony, but..."

"What is it?" Twilight asked.

"... will you be waiting for me? When I sleep, and when I die?"

"You'll see us again. And we will meet with you when your job is done if you remember us."

"Remember you?" I said, "I'll never forget you."

"Be that as it may, life is a long time. I hope you can find happiness that exceeds our limitations in that time. But, for now, I think it's about time you wake up."

I hugged them all and thanked them for everything.

"And remember," Twilight said, "You're not alone. You have us, but you also have friends..."

Then I opened my tear-filled eyes, sat up in bed, and started my journey.

Just set your alarm for a time before you wake up. You'll interrupt your dream and have it fresh in your memory. If you want to remember it WRITE IT DOWN.
If you just go until you wake up naturally, you drop out of the dream cycle and your mind forgets.

I FEEL IT!

***
I posted this thread early this morning while it was fresh on my mind. Something about the day seemed different. I decided to return to you and relate the effects this dream had on me, though it won't be nearly as engaging.

This day was wonderful! Every time I felt the sorrow building up inside of me, I remembered my dream and the advice of the ponies. I feel as though I can change this world; that it IS possible. I feel so great. I was helpful today, and no cry went unanswered. I could feel them inside of me. And what's more? I actually befriended the least likely candidate for friendship I would have expected. This is a guy who hates ponies. A major /b/tard (the kind that's underage and is always looking to parasprite, spouting memes wherever he goes). Granted he's about 4 or 5 years younger than me, but it was a great accomplishment. I swallowed everything that I felt for him--the annoyance, the loathing of his immaturity and simple-mindedness--and, despite my better judgment, told him he was a pretty cool guy. A nice guy that I would like to get to know. He didn't see it coming and I can actually relate to him a little. He added me on facebook (bleh). I don't think he'll become a brony or anything, but he is definitely not giving me a hard time anymore.

I just want to tell you that I've experienced one of the most joyous and enlightening days of my life.

I decided to post this picture because I found it very inspiring, though it isn't pony related.

I would like to end by saying ponies saved my life...

Having a dream this organized and influential... it must be impossible for certain people.

Like me.

My dreams are a torrent of chaos that extend infinitely in all directions, never converging on a single focus for more than a few seconds. Like the distant screams of a thousand terrified children, my visions bestow absolute and unrelenting despair upon my waking mind. The maw of death suckles my writhing soul, accusing me of murder and imbuing only guilt into my daily routine of existence. Pain and death are the only constant forces in my horrifying conscious interpretation of reality...

...

Oh! But if you actually have dreams like this, then my kudos go out to you! It is an inspiration to see such pleasant, emotional, and inspiring dreams find their way into your life! :D

My dreams are similar. Not the dark saddy parts, but the chaos. I've drowned tornado monsters in puddles of slushie, eaten crippled midgets made of Jello, and had bologna fights with Tiger Woods.

I'd say "I wish I was joking", but to be honest, those wacky-flank dreams are one of the few reasons I can bring myself to actually sleep at night.

As an Atheist, I cannot say that Equestria is after death. But also as an atheist I cannot proove what I just said. ^^ When you're time comes, your final dream maybe of Equestria. TBH I dunno if Equestria would be my final dream. Perhaps the Green Hill Zone with Sonic or where my ansestors are.

Point is though, as Mahatma Gandhi said: "Be the change you want to see in the world."

If I may be rather Atheist for a moment. We here on Ponychan are not here because of what we believe, but what we know. Not because of religion or some prophet told us, but what we just know. These ponies teach us what we have always known when we were just children, that innocence when we wanted to go outside and share our kindness to the world oblivious to the grim out there. The ponies teachings is that this child like perception is not silly nor impossible.

We here on Ponychan can be that change we want on the internet as well as the world.

Yeah. While there is my "nothing to worry about" theory. There is one philosophy I have but more of a novelty I like to humour myself with alone.

I believe that every world created from pure imagination is real. Sonewhere, beyond alternate dimensions or whatever, Equestria (or in my case Sonic's Earth but Equestria does sound lovely, as well as many other worlds we just believe is fiction) these worlds are or will be real.

Once we die, there maybe a time of "dreaming" where our collective thoughts merge with the Earths own dream and once it's time we will find the worlds we dream of and be reborn into that life. Kinda like a large organiser of where souls want to go next.

It's a pretty heavy philosophy and, while I do like a bit of derail and philosophical discussion, I don't want to tarnish the OP's message of knowledge and belief in our much beloved ponies.
>> No. 16515
Quick backstory moment: I'm Catholic, but never got any religious schooling. I grew up in rural Georgia, in the 'Bible Belt' of America. People pretty much told me I was going to Hell because I wasn't going to their church. Needless to say, this actually made me appreciate my religion more.

Now on that note, I am in total agreement with the Atheist (shocking, right?) on the points they have made; we MUST be the change we wish to see in this world, for not many will be.

When there is no light to follow, it becomes a duty to be that light yourself! Seeing you doing your best will make a few other people want to do their best too, and then others will be inspired by them, until like Lennon said "We all shine on".

At this point I believe in princess Celestia and princess Luna, there my gods, I use to go to a small church in Michigan, for a while I stoped believing in god, i found what I believe is seficent evidence to deny the existence of a higher power.
Now when I look up to the sky I thank celestia for the beautiful brighten sun. I think to myself, thank you so much celestia, For raising the sun so we can see the faces of are friends and family, and at night time, I thank Luna for her stunning star that Twinkle As they fly by.

I can't really take credit for that. Twilight said it, not I. You may believe that my subconscious devised it, but I choose to believe that the ponies are inside of my heart with feelings and thoughts of their own...

Once again, I had a fabulous day everypony! I couldn't stop smiling. I can tell that the world isn't as bad as I had originally thought because when I would smile at people whom I had never met before, they would smile back at me and I would feel as though I had made their day a little bit better. Sure, there were plenty who just looked at me weird, but that didn't phase me. Making people feel good is simply splendid, though I still need to work at it. Sometimes it just feels awkward... *Note to self: Complimenting a woman's pants when you don't know her is not friendly... it's creepy*

I read this yesterday, and today as I was walking around, I imagined our favourite ponies following me around, commenting on things that we saw and what I was thinking. Then I remembered something that my parents told me: that when I was little, I used to have imaginary friends that I called 'my little horses'. Perhaps they've been with me the whole time...?

Making my first post here to say this.

That was absolutely moving, beautiful and inspirational. You're so very lucky to have been able to have such a wonderful dream (my dreams have never been anything more than...odd.) but I owe you such a big thanks for posting this. It's really given me something to think about.

I hope you're able to live a great life moving forwards. Thank you, and good luck!

OP Petal is credit to team!

More than anything, this site reminds me to be a better person. I like that this whole community can come together and agree to be respectful of one another even if we don't always agree with one another. In the words of the great Tommy Wiseu "If more people loved one another the world would be a better place."

But srsly, outstanding work.

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. :')

Now, please, I don't mean to offend anypony here, but I'm a Christian, and I see a lot, if not all of Christian moral belief in the hearts of us here. Again, I'm really sorry if I'm offending anypony, but it seems to me that, at least from what I've seen around Ponychan, heard from other bronies, and heard from this amazing post (great post, Petal!) ponies seem to be to most bronies what the Holy Spirit is to me and many other Christians. Both are what motivate us to do good in the world and (for the Holy Spirit) to follow God's grace. I don't know anypony here's story, but I do know that what you find in MLP is also found in God. If anypony's had bad experiences with Christians or other religious people, I personally apologize. Anypony can claim to be a Christian, and even worse, some real Christians do not practice what they preach. I'm sorry for that.

I really don't know where I'm going with this, but it's a connection I've seen that I felt like I really had to point out. I'm not trying to start any religious debates. I'm not even sure I said what I was trying to express correctly. I just hope at least somepony understands what I'm trying to say...

<--- hug for love

Now, now; there's no need to be so apologetic. I was thinking almost the same thing the other day: I had this strange feeling after a day of posting ponies, and I couldn't quite describe it apart from the desire to help everypony feel so happy and full of love.

Different people have different words for it: you might call it God, others might call it ponies; personally, I prefer to think of it as simple human faith. If there was anything about your post that would've got me riled up, it was your seeming assumption that we can't do good things without God, which is absolute hooey in my opinion: conscience is a common possession of all human beings whether or not they believe in a deity.

So, yes: since you are so nice, you get a hug too. ^_^

Well I was raised prodistan, but now I don't necessarily believe in Christ so much as a better place in the afterlife. That stuff shouldn't really matter now anyway because everypony on Ponychan has their whole life to look forward to. And whenever you feel like you are the only good person in the world, just come onto Ponychan and you'll find pretty much everypony has the same problem here. We all want this world to be a better place.

I want to be with them so badly. I would give anything. These ponies are the only thing that make me happy, it seems. If I die and I get to see them, I will be happy for all of eternity and all the pain and hardship 10 times over plus 20% would be worth it. Even if I only get to dream them every night. I love ponies in a way that nopony could ever understand (except maybe you guys).

By the Forest, this was an absolutely amazing and enlightening read. I've saved it to read it with much more depth.

>>16528
Who wouldn't be suprised if they have?

Personally, I've never had a pony dream... or at least a pony dream that was about ponies. My only memory of having a dream even remotely about ponies was one where Pinkie Pie bounded in, sang "Giggle At The Ghostie" and left. I don't even know what the rest of the dream was about.

>>16484
I'm also saving this picture.

I was brought into ponies somewhat synically... I only watched it to see what my friend was fussing about... and enjoyed it.

My issue is that I personally am a bit too creative for my own good. Whereas some people have trouble seeing their own, real, world, I seem to flit between universes in my head. Star Wars, my original work called Elemental Magicks, and also Ponies... and to be honest, it's scary sometimes. I can't stand it how I'd almost be in any of them than this world, in the here and the now.

But, I'm a creationist, and as such, I do know I'm here for a purpose - I just haven't found it out yet. Still, I'm working in a factory at the moment, saving up money for university, and you can see why I'd rather be off saving a galaxy, chilling with the mane cast, or even just putting myself in my story like I have already.

But as I read my story now, I can't see myself doing what my character (and fursona) Auraek is doing in it... and I desperately wish I could sometimes. After all, saving anything and being the hero is much more interesting than running a press for eight hours straight.

That's why you've given me a slight revelation, OP. I realize now that you don't have to stop the destruction of a planet or save a race of small, anthropomorphic animals from the wrath of the elves (my story) to be a hero - you can be a hero in the here and the now by looking out and making somepony's day better, by being there as a friend or as a stranger who is just geniunely out there to spread a bit of happiness in the world where humanity, at first glance, appears to be more like animals than animals themselves, what with the fighting and the gruesome deeds (this is what I believed not too long ago).

But now I see this and I realize that the most major thing that defines us as humans is change. We changed the world to what it is now, and we can change it again. We are the catalyst of everything good and bad. This has enlightened me, OP, and I want to be a part of the change. The change for the better.

Even if it's making a single person happy for a single day, that is the definition of being a hero in today's world. We don't need these wars. In a hundred years, we'll be gone to wherever, and then will that extra square kilometer of space matter? Does it even now?

So let's go out and bring purpose to our lives. Let's be a hero. Let's make somepony happy, one day at a time.

I vote Archive. First time poster/Brony, and this was the first thread I came across. Words escape me. I can't say anything because I wouldn't be doing you or your dream any justice. The only way I'm able to is by feeling and understanding it. Unfortunately it's rather diffi-colt to convey feelings or emotions over the internet, nevertheless, pic related.

I honestly started watching MLP out of curiosity more than anything. I had seen tid-bits of it floating around the internet, but nothing ever really stuck out to me. then, on 4chan(Shocking, I know -_-;;;), I happen upon a Pony thread. In this thread is a link to the first episode. I think to myself "Ahh, what the hell." and clicked on it.

That is probably the most intelligent thing I've ever done in my 18 years of life.

Since the first episode I've been spellbound, in a good way. I've always been an outcast. emotionless. I have no fears. nothing phases me, not even death. But ever since watching the first episode I've felt myself open up a bit. Each time I see ponies I'm instantly happy and content. It never fails.

I look at this thread, and all who have posted on it, and I feel my heart melt with happiness, my chest swell with pride, and my soul fill with hope. To know there are ponies out there who only want to help each other, no matter who or what they are, makes me want to cry with joy.

I wish I could cry. I want to cry, not because I'm sad in any way, not because I'm depressed at all, but because I think it would help me in the long run. I've always bottled things up inside and buried em, and because I've done it for so long, It's started to affect the way I treat people. I think having a good cry will help me immensely.

Ahh, there I go rambling on again, I appologise. Amazing post Petal, I appreciate you sharing this...this "Miracle" is the only word to describe it...with us, all of us. I truly feel like I'm somewhere where I can be accepted for who I am, which is a feeling I've never really felt before, And It is the most amazing feeling in the world.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that My Little Pony has changed, is changing, will change my life for the better, and will make me a better person in the future.

Hello everypony!

I cannot believe that there are so many ponies in favor of archival. It makes me so happy. I didn't think my writing could affect anypony on a personal level. If this thread is archived I would be absolutely honored. I just hope this thread can inspire more ponies to get out and help the world. It is just a great feeling. Today I just finished helping my friends father clear out and organize two of his garages and it gives me a sense of happiness. As I was doing it, I was thinking about how long it would have taken him to do it all by himself and I realized how much every pony can accomplish if we work together.

Get out there friends!

If this was in fact a real dream you had I'd venture to say it was an astral travel. In essence, everypony's thoughts of Euquestria have made it a real place in the astral realm, the collective subconscious of humanity, and all of the ponies, or at the very least the most popular ones, have manifested there. All of that thought energy goes somewhere, and even though this particular version of My Little Pony hasn't been out for very long, the amount of attention is getting was bound to make this happen before long.

These are my beliefs, anyway. Feel free to call it a bunch of hocus pocus if you will.

All that I can say, is this, Petal.

Our lives are filled with dark pools of negativity and boundless stretches of darkness. Our lives are filled with the utmost structures of evil and villainy. Sometimes, yes, everything seems pointless, everything seems tactless. Everything is without meaning, and void. What does it mean to live? What does it mean to exist?...What does it mean to strive, and live on? Why go on?

We go on, to live for the existence that we wish to bring out, for ourselves. We exist, to bring out something amazing within our lives, within our innermost being. Be it a talent we have, how we think, how we do things, how we just simply...exist. We're here, to show the world, who we are, what we can do, who we can be, and what we can become. As said, we must attach reason and meaning to what can sometimes appear to be a meaningless, and unreasonable world.

But, don't let people tell you that this world is meaningless and unreasonable. You can prove to them that it is. Prove them wrong. Prove to them, that you can surprass, and create something anew, something greater than yourself, and then build yourself upon it, something even greater than that, before. Dont care what people say, if its corny, if its cheesy, if its impossible. This is YOUR life, THIS is what YOU want to create. This is your life. You can live for yourself today, or disappear into obscurity tomorrow.

Live, Petal. Live on with the power of a thousand suns, the diligence a thousand stampeding stallions into the plains of life, and the courage of one, to stand against all odds, and become everything you ever dream of becoming.

I dreamed this and wrote it myself.

I had to embellish it of course for the sake of clarity, but for the most part it's accurate.

I'm going to say this here, too just in case you come back to read this. Petal, please, don't give up. I know that there are bad people in the world. I know that you feel like this place is becoming hard and unfriendly. But I beg you: don't abandon this place, the people that you know and that you love so much. Don't abandon us. I know that it's possible that this place will one day be like 4chan is now, full of hate and enjoyment of the pain of others. It is my firmest belief that that day will not come, that the people here will not leave this place to be corrupted, that there will always be a few who remain, and who endure the hatred of humanity. I plan to be one of them. I will not let hatred win. Not here. They can mock me however they like, I will not leave. I will endure. Please. Endure with me. Where would the world be if we never faced the evil in it? Be brave, like so many have before you. Be brave, and the dream you had will never die. I will not let it. Neither should you.

WHAT?!! ANOTHER CHRISTIAN ON THE INTERNET??!!!
...sorry, I had to say that

but yes, I agree completely. Apart from this show being constructed of pure awesome, I love to see people’s stories of how it leads them to love people who hate them, to tolerate others if they have different beliefs or even if they’re just general idiots, or just to believe in themselves or in humanity. Too many religious people have gotten the mentality of being ‘righteous’, but forgotten the things that really matter in life. They remember to study their scriptures and say their prayers but forget to actually try to live the way Christ did. The greatest irony is when wars start between people because of religion, entire nations fighting eachother just because nopony remembers what the purpose of religion actually is. MLP teaches the same standards of living that religion is truly meant for, and I think it’s wonderful that it’s causing so many people to understand what life is really about.

This is definitely something I'm glad to have seen. My entry into the Herd was through Doctor Whoof (a fanfiction author I like wrote a story with him in it), and after a few months of "this show is intriguing me" I finally found a video of the entire first season.

And I have discovered that, since then, I've been doing much better at controlling my sins. Maybe after this I'll finally start going back to church! ^.^

You very nearly made my cry my damned eyes out. You also tapped into one of the key emotional/mental aspects of the bronydom that I have been analyzing and attempting to understand. You have my respect, my sympathy, and my empathy. If this dream happened to me, my god, I would bawled.

It is reassuring to find that there are those who would have the same wish as myself, that these characters, these pastel, flash animated, human voiced pixels projected through a television set were real. I lost my faith in humanity long before finding My Little Pony: FiM, but damn it, you reminded me of one my purposes in life. Also, you nearly made me cry. Damn it. Thank you.

Indeed you aren't. The world is a cold, unforgiving place where innocence dies so fast that most children never even notice. Call it a weakness, but it is unavoidable that we would want to go to a better place. Ironically, if this reached the public media, we would be branded as insane.

I long for dreams this beautifully motivational. As of late, all of my dreams have involved my death, and my welcoming of it. In each one I die the same way, shot in the head, I live, shot again, and I wake up. But every time It's in a new place, almost like I'm seeing the deaths of past lives. I could use a hug, something to cheer me up. Ponies and Bronies give me that happiness, with the fan art, and music, fics, and posts like this.

I can see you're the type of atheist that wasn't taught correctly how beautiful religion can be. You're ignorant. If you actually knew correct Catholic teaching, you can understand that Heaven is greater than Equestria, if not as good. I wager my right eye that there's no way you can legitimately say Equestria is better than anything Chrsitianity actually teaches about Heaven.
God, I feel stupid for talking about this on a pony board but I cannot let such ignorance go unchallenged.

Jeez, I'm constantly amazed at how far multiverse theory has spread into the collective consciousness. Could you debate how you got to this theory/your reasons for believing in it? It interests me greatly why people choose to believe in such theories.

That's honestly your hope for the afterlife? I'm going to practice some tough love and say you're very immature.

I don't suppose the mantra Love and Tolerance has any bearing on you. Expressing a condescending tone and calling other's opinions and beliefs utterly incorrect certainly does not uphold that mantra. Of course, you may continue in whatever manner you deem acceptable. I merely hope you would consider what our community's belief means before so rashly judging others.

This story was great and touching. I teared up a little.

Your dream, as well as the show and brony community in general, are so motivational. While it may be a little far-fetched to believe so, I feel that this show has had an astounding effect on stabilizing my view of the world. It has encouraged me to keep strong my optimistic attitude and patient heart (both of which I am so thankful for). Thank you for sharing your story, it has again renewed my faith that there is always good in the world, sometimes you just have to do a little searching for it. And when you do find it, you need to amplify it to positively effect as many as you can.

Sidebar: I'm not sure exactly what stirs it, but whenever I see/experience negativity, my very essence changes, as if my soul is trying to reject the negativity that it just perceived...its kind of hard to explain, but it's similar to having 'butterflies in you stomach;' it just sets me ill at ease. It's an odd experience, but its almost as if my body simply has a low tolerance for negativity.

Sidebar #2: The only dream I can currently remember having was the second of two dreams (I had a dream that I can't remember, woke up, went back to bed, and had a second dream). I was wandering around a store searching for MLP merchandise, and was disappointed that I couldn't find any. Disregarding my previous failures, I just kept searching and searching to try and find some. (Random tidbit: At one point somepony spoke to me in French, I think I was in a French store. However, I am an american and English is my first language, so it was odd. Especially since she said that she liked my shirt, that was written in english). I'm not generally one for interpreting dreams, but they do come from somewhere, whether it be dormant emotions or unfinished thoughts. Anyways, I think this dream had a similar moral as yours, keep searching, keep moving, and keep doing in an effort to make the world a better place, and eventually things will change.

Sidebar #3: This only thing I can remember from my first dream is that at one point I was given an epic Rainbow Dash beach towel. XD

This is from April of last year, and yet it still has the same emotional impact on me as it did then.

There are still no words...

Yes. I find it odd. It's as though I'm always pulled back here. Every time a season begins or ends. Every time I feel lost, I come here and all of these feelings come rushing back to me.

I don't know if anypony here will actually believe me, but this dream has completely rewritten my future. Every choice I make; my entire outlook on life is the result of this dream.

I love you all so much I can hardly keep from crying.
