Night time dreams are scattered and come in short vignettes [usually]. When you awaken, the day time dream arises and it seems long [in clock time] and seamless. This appears to reinforce the validity of it as reality … but it is NOT. When in deep sleep what you experience in day time dreaming - dissolves. It then reappears through your conditioning oriented ‘memory’ … you literally ‘make-it-up’ - the entire universe-world-dream after every deep sleep. There is no so-called evolution or growth from one state to another … that concept is a popular dream within the Grand Dream. YOU … are ‘never not the SELF’.
IT/YOU is always ‘Empty-Nothing’ yet All That Is - Perfect - ONE - Indivisible - Boundless. This ‘you’ each one calls ‘me’ has absolutely no reality … it is an illusion ‘projected’ on the screen of Consciousness [the ONE SELF]. The mind [false self] can relate to this and even hold it as a ‘belief’ but until it becomes a Heart-Centered ‘Knowing’ that belief is ‘also’ a dream. The Awareness of Knowing ‘is’ Real Freedom.
