Since ancient times, many wise men have called our world ‘the waking dream’ or ‘the matrix.’ A matrix is a network of distinct particles that are all connected through an indivisible field.
This is the nature of our existence today. We have identified with being the particle through ego identification, but we have forgotten that we are connected to the whole, and that any of our feelings, thoughts or actions affect everything else.
To awaken is to remember that we are both the whole and the separate parts. To awaken is to remember our divine nature.
