Buddhist Lojong Slogan: Regard All Dharmas as Dreams.
Why regard your every waking moment as a big Truman Show-like dream?
Because then you’ll chill, get a sense of humor, and go with the flow, brau. Okay, time for commentary from someone who actually knows what they’re talking about. Yes: Pema Chodron:
…simply, regard everything as a dream. Life is a dream. Death is also a dream, for that matter; waking is a dream and sleeping is a dream. Another way to put this is: “Every situation is a passing memory”. It is said that with these slogans that are pointing to absolute truth—openness—one should not say “Oh, yes, I know,” but that one should just allow a mental gap to open, and wonder, “Could it be? Am I dreaming this?” Pinch yourself. Dreams are just as convincing as waking reality. You could begin to contemplate the fact that things are not as solid or as reliable as they seem.
