Someone has asked me yesterday
– What were you like before your awakening?
– Before? The awakening is not a single event. It is a neverending process. You can’t awake once and you awaken forever. You awake yourself (or not) every day, every moment, in every situation.
You do this because your mind and subconsciousness are taking over you again and again. That’s why you need constantly adjust yourself and awake yourself in every situation.
Of course, there are big, significant events in your life, that can shake you up. These events can reveal a new way of experiencing and seeing reality. They can create strong, long term effects. But sooner or later these effects will become weaker and weaker and than disappear like a wave on the sea. That’s why if want to stay awake, you need to keep creating new waves
