Wakefulness is the way to life.
The fool sleeps
As if he were already dead,
But the master is awake.
And he lives forever.
He is clear.
How happy he is!
For he sees that wakefulness is life.
How happy he is,
Following the path of the awakened.
With great perseverance
He meditates, seeking
Freedom and happiness.
My Heart’s Story on Wakefulness
Wakefulness is the way to life. THE FOOL SLEEPS. I feel like I am dead sometimes. Especially when I am not pursuing the buddhist path. Being new to buddhism, I especially see how different things are when I am not doing things like mantras, breathing mindfully, etc. But if we awaken, we will live forever. This touches me. This inspires me to become more buddha!!
How happy he is. Who wouldn’t be happy when you are fully aware about what is around you? This also tells us, that meditation is KEY. Because it is. It helps me receive love, and guidance. It helps me to find the truth.
