Life is a dream. With every set of circumstances that arise, you are experiencing a new dream. Every new dream is completely detached from everything else. The only real variable is you. If you are interpreting your present circumstances and self based on the past, you are creating an un-real continuity. The excitement is found in that you are not you, at least in the sense of any possible interpretation you could have built in the past. No no, you are simply a dream character. You can be whoever you would like. Make the most of it, while you can. After those circumstances have passed, allow yourself to rest. Build your own personal energy, through abiding in your own presence of non-doing. Wait for the next dream, which is, ideally, given to you after sufficient energy has been built.
