If you really ARE pure Consciousness; limitless, infinite and sublime, how is it possible to ALSO live an ordinary and mundane human life when you're "down in the marketplace?" Can you live "IN" the Dream world with absolute integrity and authenticity, and yet, also experience not really being "OF" that same world, too? Can you actually walk the proverbial razor's edge between being "god" and being "human" by learning, instead, to simply "BE?"
