Samsara Nightmare

NightmareIn the ultimate sense, samsara has no real existence. It is a misperception; it does not truly exist. Just as a nightmare lacks inherent existence, yet feels terrifyingly real to those who are asleep, samsara feels ‘real’ while we are under the illusion of duality. We are mistaken about who and what we are, and also about where we find ourselves.

The Buddhas do not exist in a plane different from ours. The Buddhas have no such misconceptions, but choose to enter our nightmare in order to awaken us. In reality, neither They nor us are suffering. When we awaken, we realize our true nature.

When the nightmare ends, we find that we are now and have always been safe, and there has never been a ‘monster’ pursuing us. We have never been separate entities; we have never been bound.
