Wake up from the dream

If you dream you’re being chased by a giant Kodiak bear and then suddenly awaken, what happens to that 1,500-pound bear? It disappears, of course. No matter how real and frightening it seems while you’re dreaming, it’s just an illusion that dissolves the instant you wake up.

The Discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, draws a parallel between sleeping dreams and another kind of dream. In Rudimental Divine Science, she writes, “In a moment you may awake from a night-dream; just so you can awake from the dream of sickness;…” (p. 11). 

When we believe what the material senses suggest, we are dwelling in a dream.
