Dream State Identity Crisis

The yoga texts explain that in material life everyone is actually in a dream state, thinking themselves to be the body and mind. In our night dreams we watch our dream body do so many things – flying through the sky, being chased by a tiger… and when we wake up, immediately we think I am this body, I am this mind and I have many things I need to do in relation to this body and mind, the superfluous coverings of the real self, the conscious being inside. When do we actually wake up?
