While dreaming, there might be situations causing you pleasure, fear or frustration. But when you wake up from the dream, all those situations vanish, along with the pleasure or pain. If it was a nightmare you’re relieved, but if it was a good dream you may wish that you hadn’t have woken. But no matter what you were facing, it was only imaginary, it was all made up.
Life works much the same way, all is experienced only briefly and will swiftly pass away. So why worry yourself to death over what’s happening in your life? Or on the other side, why chase after fleeting and illusory pleasures? All that begins will also end, good or bad. When it does, what has always been will still be, and all that was but is now not will be seen for what it was, a dream. Why not see that now?
