Our job is not to wake up from the dream, it is to be in the dream – awake!
Waking up from the dream of reality implies an end goal, something that is not now. And it implies that the dream is a place we have to escape. One of our favourite dreams is the dream of awakening from the dream. But who would awaken? The one who wakes up would be just one more dream character walking into a dream world. And yet all is not lost. Something can be aware of both the dreamer and the dreamed. This awareness is so polite, it makes no effort to disturb the dream. It is not offended when the dream continues. In fact, it has waited for this dream since forever. And now it is here.
