Before I talk about being “awake,” I want to take you through a few moments in your life that happen daily and I want you to think about it.
Instance # 1 .
When you get up in the morning, you immediately head to the bathroom, reach for your toothbrush, pick the toothpaste, apply the toothpaste over the brush, and start brushing our teeth. Now think back for a moment and honestly tell me, do you instruct your mind to take actions, do you think before doing any of those actions or does your body automatically performs all those actions?
Most of the times, you may be thinking about a million other things while your body is automatically taking actions. If someone asked you what color brush you have, you would take a minute to think about it even though you use it everyday.
Instance # 2.
Suppose you are going to a place which is halfway the same route as your daily commute to workplace. Do you have those moments where you accidentally reach your workplace instead of the place you wanted to go and then realize you had to take that left turn instead of right turn?
That doesn’t sound like being awake, much like half-awake.
Being awake means being AWARE of what is happening around us.
You may pass by the birds chirping on the tree but you hardly hear them or see them? You may pass by a red bricked house everyday but if someone asked about a red bricked house in your area, you wouldn’t be sure if there really was one. You don’t know what water tastes like. You don’t know what smell your house has. You don’t know what a feather of a bird feels like. You don’t know which direction the clouds are moving. You don’t know how strong the wind is blowing.
These things exist around you every minute of your life yet you are not aware of them because you are awake but not really awake. You are not aware of what is happening around you.
You have programmed your mind with a LIMITED set of daily tasks and now your mind is automatically giving orders for those actions. Your mind is navigating your body to do the everyday tasks it is programmed to do, while you are wandering and lost in your own world of thoughts.
You do not see, feel, smell, taste, hear, reflect and think about things that are spread around us. You have created a wall between what you see and what really is to see.
It’s time for you to see how beautiful the world is, how powerful your thoughts are and how amazing life is. It’s time to WAKE UP!
