In our nonlucid dreams, we are
mired down in the illusion that we are awake, and we suffer by grasping onto
everything in the dream as being absolutely "out there." In the same way, we are
afflicted during the day by regarding ourselves and everything around us as
being separate and disconnected. Imagine the bliss of becoming lucid at all
times, perceiving all things as luminous displays of the deepest dimension of
our own awareness. This is the truth that sets us free.
