Q: Do you mean to say that sleep is Self-realization?

M: It is Self. Why do you talk of realization? Is there a moment when the Self is not realized? Why pick out sleep for it? Even now you are Self-realized.

Q: But I don't understand it!

M: Because you are identifying the Self with the body. Give up this wrong identification and the Self is revealed.

Q: But this does not answer my question to help me get rid of maya (illusion) i.e. attachment.

M: This attachment to the world is not found in sleep. It is perceived and felt now. It is not your real nature. To whom is this accretion? It does not exist once the real nature is known. Maya is not an object that can be got rid of in any other way.

Q: I do not understand your reference to dream and mental illusion.

M: Our experience of the world is evoked and dissolved by the mind. When you travel from India to London, does your body really move? No! It is the conveyance that moves, and your body remains inside it without itself traveling. It is the ship and the train that travel.

M: Just as these movements are superimposed on your body, so visions, dream-states and even reincarnations are superimposed on your real Self. The latter does not move, and is not affected by all these outward changes, but ever remains still in its own place even as the body remains still in the ship's cabin.

M: You are always the same, and hence beyond time and beyond space. In deep sleep, you have no sense of time. The concept of time and space arises only when there is the limitation of "I." Even now, the "I"-thought is both limitless and limited. So long as you think it to be the body, it is limited. At the time of waking up, and before one actually becomes fully aware of the external world, that interval -- timeless, spaceless -- is the state of the true "I."

M: Why do your questions not arise in deep sleep? The fact is that you have no limitations in sleep and no question arises. Whereas now, you identify with the body and questions of this kind arise.
