Recognize the Dream-like Nature of Life

If you observe very carefully, you are held in an experience that is much like a dream. The wise say that this experience of waking life is just a longer dream, which means we are actually sleeping in the consciousness, because we know that dreams happen when we are sleeping. Is it true that we are held in an illusion, and what we are experiencing as reality isn’t so? That there is a greater reality than what we are experiencing? Is there?

Let us hold that thought for a moment, that what we are experiencing as reality with our human senses is not absolute reality; it is dream-like. Just think for a moment. What have you seen as you look in the mirror every day? You have seen your physical body change. If you look at life very carefully, there is a birth and death every day, you will see the constant change in everything around you. When we go to sleep and have this experience of a dream, why do we call it a “dream”? Because when we wake up, we realize that it was only in the mind and our perception of the dream changed. So every day, you are watching how that which you hold as a reality is ever changing.
