Beautiful passage! Growing up in duality, I see myself as separate from others, and see Spiritual or Divine as separate from myself (though perhaps as an admirable path, dream or goal). With awake eyes it become clear the separation IS the dream state, and as long as we are alive, the head was never actually separate from the body (as much as it may have seemed that way). There is an infinitely deep peace in experiencing Life this way, letting go of the endless chase of the chicken for the head, and visa-versa: the illusion of separation was only in each part thinking it had lost the other. But how to help what looks like bleeding chaos "out there"? Can we awaken when we are tired of sleeping?

Dreams have no actual existence other than in the memory of the sleeper, but greed, hatred, and delusion are expressions of the dream of separation which DO affect those other dreams around us. Infinite Divine, and unconditional loving-kindness beckon from the waking realm, which includes all limited dreams without being lost in any of them.
