Awake! Become Aware! We are not living – we are half dead!
We never live totally, completely. We live in a half-hearted manner. We never do something or experience anything from the depth of our being. Our mind is always thinking of something else. Our mind will be everywhere else, doing everything else except being where we are at the moment.
We are bored because our mind wanders; our eyes have no glow. Let us look at our reflection in the mirror. What do we see?
We see a dull, bored looking person staring back at us.
We are not in tune with our own life. We feel our life is very dull, and terribly dragging. Our life is no life!
Can we remember our actions today? We live like a man who is half asleep!
We do things without involving ourselves fully or completely being aware of what we are doing. We ignore the present.
We brushed our teeth today. But do we recall the cold water touching our mouth?
Do we remember the taste of the toothpaste in our mouth or the pressure of the toothbrush upon our gums? Do we remember how we felt after brushing?
We live with no awareness whatsoever.
Just become aware, deeply aware of every single thing that you do. Awareness is the basis, the focus and the goal of meditation.
