What is the difficulty in waking up?
A partial answer that I observe has to do with the dream of this world.
We are born into a world, a society, a dream, that is already in motion. It comes from the past.
It is not "our" dream. But unfortunately, it is what we are given by our parents, peers and
the collective social consciousness. "Given" is perhaps too kind a word.
Some might say "programmed" or "brainwashed" or "forced".
Anyway, I noticed a difficulty is the lack of options. That is, when contemplating a better
world, a better mind, a better dream, one often tries to contemplate this with the same "world mind"
which has been handed down to us from the ignorance of the past. It is difficult for some to
imagine a relative value or comparison after being trained in this "world mind" for so long.
What other mind is there?
Thus the practice or realization of "original mind" - mind of the Origin.
Grasping the nature of this mind requires extracting oneself from the "world mind".
Utopia is not realized with the mind that is thinking to "build a better mousetrap".
There is no need for mousetraps in the original mind.
As I have often said, this world is completely inapplicable to that world.
Money, body, looks, health, our current technology (computers, etc)...
There is no thought of these things in the "New" Dimension that is upon us.
Align yourself. Prepare the way.
"Do not be conformed to this age (of this world), but be transformed by the renewal of
the mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, good and acceptable and perfect."
- Romans 12:2
Align with "the will of God". Align with Nature.
Nature is speaking to us, as always, but even louder for those hard of hearing.
Terrebilis est locus iste. ("This place is terrible.")
