You are dreaming a dream, a nightmare. You can’t change the dream of the world. You can only learn to see it for what it is and wake up from it. Enlightenment is not a part of the dream. Nor is denial of the existence of the body—saying it is all an illusion. We work from the bottom up. We start with what you believe to be true. The appropriate use of denial is to deny the belief that error can hurt you. Nothing outside you can harm you.
