So when one awakens in this life how are they still dreaming,they are awakened(not sleeping)

It is important to acknowledge and understand the three marks of existence:
1. Anicca (impermanence)
2. Dukkha (dissatisfaction)
3. Anatta (non-self)
as well as the Four Noble Truths, to begin with:
1. Life contains dukkha
2. Dukkha is caused by clinging to things [for explanation of "things" see: skhanda] which are inherently impermanent, which suggests ignorance of their true nature
3. There is a way to end dukkha
4. The way to end dukkha is to live the Eightfold Path
