  • The dream of life

    Chuang Tzu, China

    (Submitted by the Art of Living Team)

    How do I know that the love of life is not a delusion? How do I know that he who is afraid of death is not like a man who left his home as a youth and forgot to return? Those who dream, do not know that they are dreaming; in their dream, they may even try to interpret their dream. Only when they have awakened, do they begin to know that it was a dream. By and by, comes the great awakening, and then we shall know that it has all been a great dream.
