"holding on" or attaching to a dream is a likely way to quicken its end.
have you ever tried to hold onto a dream? ..what happened?
it's like grasping onto water. ..the harder we hold on, the less we get.
if we can immerse ourselves in the water, if we can bathe in the experience of liquid refreshment -- then we (in that moment) are the process of immersion. ..we are One with our experience.
