Nisargadatta describes the end of illusion

“Realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the world. Once you realize that there is nothing in this world which you can call your own, you look at it from the outside as you look at a play on the stage or a picture on the screen. To know the picture as the play of light on the screen gives freedom from the idea that the picture is real. In reality I only look. Whatever is done is done on the stage. Joy and sorrow, life and death, they are real to the man in bondage; to me they are all in the show, as unreal as the show itself. I see only consciousness, and know everything to be but consciousness, as you know the pictures on the cinema screen to be but light. It is enough to shift attention from the screen onto oneself to break the spell. It is enough to shift attention to the Self and keep it there. Look at the dream as a dream. When you see your dream as dream you wake up. When you have seen the dream as a dream you have done all that needs be done.”
