“The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao.” -Lao Tzu

MICHAEL: You can’t get out of the dream because you were never in the dream. The dream is for the dream character, the “action figure,” not You. If you are what is seeing the movie, then you know you are not the movie.

Even if a character dies in a movie, what has that got to do with You who is observing the movie? Nothing. There’s nobody, no separate entity actually in the movie and there never has been. It’s all the uncontrollable play of light/color/sound… for no “one”! The “one” that imagines it’s a separate self is also part of the dream, part of the appearance, part of the movie.

We suffer when we take ourselves to be something we are not. An appearance can only ever be an appearance. You are prior to ALL appearances, regardless if it’s a “positive” or “negative” appearance.

That which perceives an appearance cannot be the appearance. That which perceives an appearance isn’t anything. For if it were something, it would be an appearance to what?? ALL thoughts are an appearance in what you are, but that which you are cannot be named.
