in them. You find yourself by not accepting them as causing you,
and giving you effects.
You stand apart from
them, but not apart from him who dreams them. Thus you separate
the dreamer from the dream, and join in one, but
let the other go.
The dream is but illusion
in the mind. And with the mind you would unite, but never with the

fear, and not the mind. You see them as the same, because you think
that you are but a dream. And what is real and what is but illusion

what he dreams, nor is his body, “hero” of the dream,
It is his REALITY that is
your brother, as is yours to him. Your mind and his are joined in
His body and his dreams but
seem to make a little gap, where yours have joined with his.
