The Dream You

It's like it was me, but it wasn't me.

Have you ever had a dream where you are experiencing events, but you aren't entirely yourself? Maybe your personality or appearance is different. Maybe your reactions are also different. Maybe you live in a different world, with an entirely different worldly context.

What does it mean that the you that retains the memories of these experiences is outside the dream character which only sometimes maintains your real-world behavior and characteristics?

Maybe these experiences are our body's way of teaching us that who we are is simply a collection of stories, and that when the context drastically changes, the us that we define drastically changes along with it. Maybe the observing you needs help shining light on the attachments we cling to throughout a lifetime of experiences. Maybe dreams help.
