In the dream or out of it? (Epictetus)

Remember that you are an actor in a play, and the Playwright chooses the manner of it…. Your business is to act the character that is given you and act it well; the choice of the cast is Another’s.


(But the Playwright is You!, a non-dualist will say… otherwise “you” are still in the dream)
