Deepak explores the question of whether we live in a dream, whether this life is an illusion. Are we asleep? How do we wake up?* Our thoughts are almost always about the past and future, which means we do technically live in a dream. Only in life-centered present-moment awareness do we live in a world of consciousness and possibility. Many spiritual traditions say that we need to “wake up.” Then we will realize that we are the creators of our own dreams. We are the authors of our own lives. We are the universe.
“I am that. You are that. All this is that. That alone is. And that is the infinite consciousness that is constantly evolving and expressing itself.”
