57 On Dreams and Reality

Beloved Tara,

Only this is not a dream.
This is reality.
Life is real.

It may be a game, but it is not a dream.
It is truth.

You can choose to live your life in a dream, however, and then you are truly alone because you are cut off from the real, by your own choice.

No one can force you to be cut off from life, any more than anyone can force you to be present.

It is all up to you.

The Mahamudra which I have talked about is the state of choosing the real, of uniting to life.

How about if instead of going around all day telling your self "this is all a dream", why not try to go around saying "this is all reality, this is real, and really happening, and I am part of that reality"?
