I love the experiences of life so much. I feel this adds to my anxiety around death. I had a friend who became terminally ill. And he was young! It freaked me out—still does.

We all dream, and during that dream it feels one hundred percent real. Every person can testify to this. Upon waking, you say, “I’m glad that wasn’t real.” The whole cast of characters was there in your dream: your husband, child, and friends. In the interactions, you felt emotions; there was laughing and crying. Then you woke up. Now you’re in the waking state, and you are experiencing interactions here in this state. What is the difference between the two?

The only difference is that in the waking state, you say the dream state is not real! The experiences in both states feel equally real, so real that when you were dreaming, you could not recall the waking state. But in both states, a consistent, unchanging consciousness was present—you.

Inquire into this matter and validate for yourself that you are that unchanging thread that both the waking state and dream state hang on.

  1. Incredible insight! I’m actually also trying to figure things out in terms of reality and illusion. The only way we can discover the true reality is when we look into our beings. But this is still something I am trying to tap into. Is the subconscious the realm of reality, being that it is not a state of consciousness, neither a state of total darkness? Let me know what you think 🙂
