Are we living in one world- the world in which we walk with our feet? Or do we live in another world- a world of thought and dream? Which is real? When does life become a reality and when is just another dream?… Our dreams are our own creations, and as we study them we learn our personal language of the unconscious. Swami Sivananda Radha
