The Dream of Life

So we are awake in our dream
we come to know our dreams
we come to know we are dreaming.
We come to see why we dream
awake, asleep, a dream
to understand
to see
to move beyond
to become the one gone beyond
to wonder
what is the one gone beyond
to become
having been
never becoming
always being.
to come to understand the reason for dreaming
and to realize the clinging even so
subtly to dreams
is how we live them
to let them go
to learn to be without being
