1. I had a dream this morning
2. I enjoyed the dream.
3. However, that does not make it a good dream.
In the dream, I was so happy that even asked my friend who was inside, “Is this a dream?” Since only alert and fully awake people can pinch themselves and/or ask such questions, I took it to be reality.
The consequence? Extreme disappointment.
In fact, I wasn’t even sure which realm I had awakened into.
Sometimes, I’m not even sure which is the nightmare:
A bad dream that you can’t seem to wake up from,
or a good dream you can’t seem to stay asleep in.
