The Default Setting

June 9th, 2011

If it’s true right now is the dream mind is dreaming, and there are no people, only dreamers

in the dream relying on duality to defend the fiction they are people, then every dreamer, on close inspection, relies on “The Default Setting” to sustain the fiction it is a person in this dream.

“The Default Setting,” which, in the name of brevity we can refer to as TDS, is what the dreamer reverts to in the dream to prolong the fiction the self is real. No dreamer in this dream can defend the fiction it is a ‘real person’ without relying on the fiction the self it invented is real. This is “The Dreamer’s Dilemma” in this dream. If the self can only exist as a concept in this dream, then how can any dreamer in this dream successfully defend the fiction it is the person it portrays in this dream? Obviously, mind makes it possible for the dreamers in this dream to drag out the defense of “The Master Lie” (that right now is real not a dream) with the fiction the self is real.

Acceptance

June 1st, 2011

If right now can only be the dream mind is dreaming, then nothing ‘going on’ has anything to do with people. The dreamers in this dream accurately display where they are between acceptance and rejection of the truth. If truth is absolute, meaning right now can never be anything any more real than the dream mind is dreaming, then nothing ‘going on’ has ever had anything to do with people. There are no ‘human beings,’ not if ‘right now’ can only be the dream mind is dreaming.

A dreamer is awake in this dream when it accepts the fact it can only be a dreamer in this dream, taking note of where it is with that fact from one moment to the next in the dream. When it lives with the fact ‘right now’ is what mind is dreaming, in its entirety, there is zero

duality: mind is dreaming everything just the way it manifests, including the dreamers, and how they create duality in the dream to defend the fiction they are the people they portray in the dream. In a state of perpetual ‘mindfulness,’ right now is the dream mind is dreaming, and everything ‘gong on’ can only be more content in the dream, including how the dreamers fill time ‘creating duality to do personhood believably in the dream.’
