The dream within the dream is your thinking about what is Essential and what is non-essential, and when you realize that you are the Self, Atman, then you have this experience...

You felt that the world is illusory. You felt that you are awake and that it is your waking state. You felt that you have obtained 'experience,' but still, your confusion, your illusion, is persisting as it was. You are yet talking about things in the dream.

When there is true awakening, all the sense of 'being' disappears. Even the sense that you are the Self, also dissolves.

ONE WHO LIVES AS A BODY SUFFERS AS A BODY .
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The devotee actually is God. What do you mean when you say that he has "become" God? The concept of "one's self" is an illusion. There is only One Self in the world. Regardless of whether you say serpent or scorpion, all are only Brahman. The world appearance consists of the five elements, and the one Self, and all of this is only God. This gives us the "Glory" of non-division, non-duality, and the non-worrying state, and all of this virtue is One, and it comes all at once. Illusion has taken our possession (that of knowing our True Identity). Therefore, we have become unhappy. The signs of the "Realization of Brahman" are the sense of peace, absence of anxiety, full contentment, and an extraordinary feeling of bliss. What is being experienced as joy or bliss within becomes evident in the organs, skin, and face. The peace and contentment which completely fills Consciousness will be expressed outwardly. In other words, the spreading of light out through the windows, from the lamp that is lit inside. The "Glory" is the absence of anxiety in the mental field.

The Bird's Way
The way of meditation is a long arduous path while the Bird's Way is a clear direct path of Self investigation, Self exploration, and using thought or concepts as an aid to understanding and Self-Realization. Sometimes this approach is also called the Reverse Path. What Reverse Path indicates is the turning around of one's attention away from objectivity to the more subjective sense of one's Beingness. With the Bird's Way, first one's mind must be made subtle. This is generally done with some initial meditation on a mantra or phrase which helps the aspirant to step beyond the mental/conceptual body, using a concept to go beyond conceptualization.
