If you are lying in bed next to someone who is dreaming, their dream is not your dream. If their dream is a dark imagination, they may appear shaken and show tension from that dream, but their dream is still not your dream. You think for yourself and have your own experience according to what you are entertaining in thought as real and true.
This rule is helpful to remember when interacting with other people.
All types of conditions and circumstances are presented to us in the form of other people’s experience.
If we see anything less than the perfect child of God in our neighbor, we’re entertaining a dream about them to some degree. God’s creation is perfect, full of love, health, harmony, and peace. Anything less is part and parcel of mortal mind’s imagination, which is a dreamland of life in matter.
The dream is not your dream! And mortal mind can’t make you dream it, anymore than a person lying next to you in bed can make you dream their dream.
As a child of God, you have the divine Mind to inspire, guide and direct your thinking with spiritual truth.
Stay out of the dreams. They are not yours to possess and own. Stay clear with spiritual reality and see what God sees.
The correct spiritual view will keep you in a healthy place, and help your neighbor too.
O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking,
O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free;
The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking,
Unloosing bonds of all captivity.
