There is nothing special about being awake because everyone is awake.  Being awake is the feeling of being, of which, everyone is aware.  No one can say they don’t have the feeling of existing.  We may launch an exhaustive search but that only takes us away from what is looking.  We may anticipate understanding someday, but that only projects us into a future that does not even exist.  Time and space are a continuum.  Only now is true.

 

That is the metaphor of the man sitting on a box of gold, begging at the gate of the city, and never looking in the box.

 

The perfectly ordinary perception that you are using to read this right now is that all-inclusive awareness that is the ground of being for everyone because everyone is awake, right now!

 

The age old advice is, be still and know I Am.
