Dreams feel real when you’re dreaming.
You find yourself in the middle of the action, unaware of how you got to where you are. You don’t wonder how you regressed to your childhood or how you managed to grow wings and fly. It’s only when you wake up that you realize you were dreaming.
Our lives work much the same way. It’s hard to remember how we got to where we are, why we do what we do, and why we believe what we believe.
