Answer: Where ever you were before you came here. Just like when you are dreaming, before you had which ever dream you find yourself in at a given time you may have been in a totally different dream. What the previous dream was like depended on you and the way you see yourself and the world, and maybe even what you did the day before. And just like in your dream when you arrive all is already prepared for you and whatever experience your deeper self has chosen to create for you to get whatever lesson you are to get out of it. Once again it is all about the lesson. Just like if you really pay attention to your dreams you will find they are all trying to tell you something, the same is true of this waking dream, if you really pay attention you will find that all situations seem to happen for us to get the lesson if we can be open enough to see it.
