In Hinduism often the world is thought of as a illusion or a dream. Row row your boat was a nursery rhyme invented to carry that message to our children’s children. In the west we colorize that idea to mean its unimportant , after all its just a dream right? Books are just paper and ink . A bullet is just a bit of metal . The experience of life, the ” dream,” is vital to our evolution. It may be Illusion ….yes , but does it not being benefit us to experience having children , conquer fears our fears, feel the rain on our face ?
