“Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” ~Carl G. Jung
Awaken to the truth that there is no one coming to save us from us, there is no messiah, no external source to our awakening or salvation. As long as we believe that we must be free from anything external, we will never be free. Freedom and happiness are not a condition, a person, or an event. Freedom and happiness are an internal choice from the NOW. Although there is one person who is here to save us, our savior, the messiah who we are waiting for, is the person who we see in the mirror every day. We cannot begin to live until we recognize that. We also have to recognize that our dreams become more real while we are awake rather than when we are asleep. As Pepe Aguilar has said,
“Always dream before going to sleep.”
As mentioned in “Wake Up II,” ‘Ignorance is the problem of illusion, and the present reality of distractions is the prison for our minds, which adds to “The Ego” of who we think we are.’
In the mean time open your mind because the purpose of learning is to replace a full or empty mind with an open one.
“Hope is a waking dream.” ~Aristotle
