Being sleep to the me is to be awake. Missing a beat, a moment when the mind was not there, in control, is awakening. When the mind stops and missing a beat.That's the start. Bee still. Miss a beat. And you are awake. If you love this. This awakeness will pull you deeper and deeper an deeper. And then will YOU speak about awakening.
We are all already awake, it is the natural state, and its nature is known when one is conscious of ‘being’ before clicking into identifying as the personal identity. This awakeness is the all pervading fullness of only ‘Good’ with no space left for anything else.
