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.’
