one of many faces of "Awakening"

the "Sleep" that now comes to mind is not the restful eyes-shut and "mind-shut" sleep. It is, rather, the existence of one characterized sticking by same old habits and particularly, "not seeing the bigger picture", if you will. Have you driven a car and found that its a heavy traffic jam. Do you keep on waiting or do you finally think of a way to get to your destination by another route ? The example is not sophisticated enough. But in many ways, we are "asleep" in our waking hours because we, as Dhyan Vimal suggests, "are not able to see ourselves more than what we are now." What do you think ?

hi, yes ur absolutely right .We actually use only a part of the time for really needed things.We waste lot of time just being idle.We dont get any working of the mind unless we are having the force from inside which tells do this.Sometimes we do things just like that becox we get used to that.Changin is difficult so from starting if we learn to do things in good way we can end up not thinking if we were wrong in the past.

It seems in the long slow process of really knowing one's self, there is, among many other things, the "constructive fear", if you will - that will help one realize in one's heart and mind the needed determination to "be". What do you think ?
