Three things about dreams. We are all in a very long dream, where we should keep the following in mind: (1) Despite it’s being a dream, we should not do anything harmful to others because it may give others nightmares. (2) Despite it’s being a dream, we should do as much as possible to help others even within the dream, because others may end up with sweet dreams. (3) Since it's just a dream, the sooner we wake up the better. Make your best efforts to awake everyone.
