When you walk in a dream and you know it’s a dream, that’s love.– Byron Katie
Just like a dream, our waking world is happening within and as consciousness. And to ourselves, we are that consciousness.
Also like a dream, if we believe our mental images and words about the waking world, the way it appears to us seems real and true.
Any lack of love comes from what we believe about our world. We take our mental images and words as true, that creates stress and struggle, and it covers up the love that’s here.
To the extent we recognize our world as a dream – as happening within and as consciousness, and our images and thoughts about it as not inherently or absolutely true – there is a release of the stress and struggle.
And what’s here is love. A love for our world as it is. A love for our world as one. A love for our world as what we are.
