WAKING, DREAMING, DEEP SLEEP AND THE ABSOLUTE - PART 13


Why live at all? Why all this unnecessary coming and going, waking and sleeping, eating and digesting? Nothing is done by me. Everything just happens. I do not expect, I do not plan, I just watch events happening, knowing them to be unreal. The three states rotate as usual, there is waking and sleeping and waking again, but they do not happen to me. They just happen. To me nothing ever happens. There is something changeless, motionless, immovable, rocklike, unassailable.....a solid mass of pure being-consciousness-bliss. I am never out of it. Nothing can take me out of it, no torture, no calamity.
