Are You Sleep Walking?

Are You Sleep Walking?
Written by Steven Griggs |

Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.
Frank Herbert

Are you a sleep walker? Are you drifting along through life in a very comfortable haze? We all do it, it is a mechanism that our conscious (and unconscious) mind uses to maintain its comfort level, staying within our living thermostat settings. 

This could be a very chaotic and stress filled daily life or a very serene and calm life or even
being homeless, living under a bridge.Whatever it is, we stay within our thermostat settings and find a living rhythm and this becomes comfortable.

For some this is their life, it works and they can drift through life in a state of ignorant bliss. I don't say that in a judging way, but merely that ignorance is bliss. No questioning, no seeking, no searching for the deeper answers. Easier, simpler, automatic.

But if you can't drift blissfully along and know there is more, you must awaken. That is the beginning, you find some awareness and then some more and you can never go back.

Being awake has its burdens, all the old things that were important become less so. You start to look harder at what you are doing with your time on this planet. Are you truly happy? Are you fulfilled? Have you found and followed your true life's purpose?

This puts you on a new path. If you are reading this you know what I'm talking about. 

Once you get a peek under the kimono, you can't stop looking.
