Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-06, Chapter-16, Text-53
yatha susuptah puruso
visvam pasyati catmani
atmanam eka-desa-stham
manyate svapna utthitah

evam jagaranadini
jiva-sthanani catmanah
maya-matrani vijñaya
tad-drastaram param smaret

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

When a person is in deep sleep, he dreams and sees in himself many other objects, such as great mountains and rivers or perhaps even the entire universe, although they are far away. Sometimes when one awakens from a dream he sees that he is in a human form, lying in his bed in one place. Then he sees himself, in terms of various conditions, as belonging to a particular nationality, family and so on. All the conditions of deep sleep, dreaming and wakefulness are but energies of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. One should always remember the original creator of these conditions, the Supreme Lord, who is unaffected by them.
