The Ego is part of the Dream

sitting-park-bench-jogger

The reason identifying with the ego is so painful is because it is part of the dream! And so, naturally, it literally thinks it/you are the dream character (the body) in the dream. It itself is dream, so it only perceives dream.

But because dream is dream and spirit is spirit, you (spirit) are able to (if you want to) step back and view your current scene from your higher-self/soul/holy-spirit and just silently observe the play.

The difference between the two experiences is day and night… and the more you “practice” resting as what you actually are (and have always been), the easier and more natural it becomes. “Today I observe my body, rather than identifying with it.”
