Sleep of Ignorance

Am I sleeping in the sleep of ignorance?

When I am asleep I am absorbed within that experience of sleep, dream and illusion. I am not even aware that I am asleep.

The sleep of ignorance is a spiritual sleep that happens whilst I am awake. It is when the intellect loses its ability to discern truth from falsehood, reality from illusion. It is the result of mental and emotional tiredness, not physical tiredness.

Wisdom is needed to remove the ignorance. And when that wisdom is used in action it awakens the soul from the sleep of ignorance. Carelessness and laziness of the intellect reduces its ability to use wisdom and will easily lead it back into the deep sleep of ignorance.

Awaken your power of discernment and bring wisdom into action.

Om Shanti
