Both are the result of the mind.
Our real state is beyond the waking, dream and sleep states, called turiya.*


-Ramana
*According to Swami Sivananda, turiya is the fourth state of consciousness in which the individual
rests in Satchidanandam (“ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new bliss”). ...
The individual soul realizes and transcends the three states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep

Thank you for putting this up MH.
This Turiya (Turiyatith) state is the real test of accomplishment.

What a name Blue Elephant like Ganesh, Ha!

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with
heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.
-Rumi


No one succeeds without effort… Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.

      Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind
     whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.

There is no doubt
                        whatsoever
                                       that the universe
                                                              is the merest illusion.
