The Dream, The Dreamer, and Consciousness
Our existence is trapped between desire and fear in the context of time. The core of our problem, then lies in thought, which is the creator of time. Human beings actually have no more independence or autonomy in living their lives than do the characters in a dream. Neither do they have anything to do with the creation of the dream or anything in it. They are simply being lived along with everything else in this living dream of the manifested universe. The entire dream is unreal. Only the dreamer is real, and that is Consciousness itself.
