We all are asleep, although we are illusioned enough to believe we are not. We are born sleeping, we live asleep, we do life activities asleep, and we die asleep.
The truth of the matter is, we don’t want to wake up. Our sleep lets us believe that all is well, even though everything around and within us is a mess.
If all were well, then there would be no requirement of wisdom or any so-called wise people. The existence of wisdom and intelligence is proof that all is not well.
We like to stay asleep because sleep is pleasant and comfortable. If we are awakened, then we will find it irritating and unsettling.
Being woken up is to be able to see things as they are, without any prejudice and do our work without anticipating any appreciation or rewards.
Now, most if not all of us, don’t know how to live without prejudices because we want to have all the appreciation available out there and all the fancy rewards.
That’s the precise reason why we want to remain asleep.
So even if someone is trying to wake you up, don’t listen to him or her.
You can choose to stay asleep if that’s what you want to do.
If you are not sure what you want to do, then also it might be okay to stay asleep.
Sleep is good. The illusion is good because even an illusion is an illusion about what an illusion is … and relief is an illusion about what relief is, isn’t it?
Have a good sleep!
