Awake sleep

It is quite an experience to sleep in awareness. To be fully aware that the form is sleeping. This is not a common occurrence for me, but has happened. Dreams lose much of their seeming significance when sleep and dreaming is being observed, much as daily mind-chatter loses significance and simply subsides as attention shifts from the content of the dream (or mental noise) to itself. This is not to say that dreams or thoughts are meaningless… only that it behooves us to recognize that it is the mind that attaches significance to them. Awareness just watches.
