"My dreams have a realness...This is so true!
My Reality has a dreaminess..."
Dreaming and reality have a definite touchpoint and carryover between them.
In Judaism, their is a saying that:
"Sleeping is one-sixtieth of death."
Life-sleeping-death all exist along a continuum.
The elements of our being cross all three of these domains.
When we are alive, there are elements of dreaminess--and it often doesn't feel quite real.
When we are asleep, our dreams can often seem so real that we actually feel them and physically react them--we may even scream and wake up an incredible fright.
When we are dead, I believe that we live on--that our soul never ceases--that it is a part of our everlasting G-d. ;-)
