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 us and within us is a mess.
If all were well, there would be no requirement for 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 seeing things as they are, without prejudice, and doing 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 and 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 stay asleep if that’s what you want to do.
If you are unsure what you want to do, 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, right?
Have a good sleep!
