Naps of Forgetting..
There is awakening:
The joy of finding..at last
Our true Self..the expansive
Newness which has
Poked and prodded so long..
But apparently remaining
Are naps of forgetting
Which induce the sleep we
A new remembering
Whisks heavy eyelids...
The SELF ‘is’ Consciousness. In order to ‘know’ IT SELF, IT must have a frame of reference … a reflection. Being Empty/Nothing-ness … this is NOT possible in ‘Truth’, and so it must create this in an ‘illusion or dream’. IT can so-called ‘do’ this in full Conscious Awareness of Who IT Is … or, unconsciously, forgetting ‘for a season’ ITs True Reality. Humanity in its current level of awareness is mostly in this ‘forgetful’ state.
-Some few are ‘fully aware’ of the ONE SELF They Are,
-many are aware of the Truth but carry much ‘conditioning’ that obscures full awareness … this is called Free with baggage,
-many more hold some mind-belief that they are ‘possibly’ more than just a body-mind-identity,
-while most sleep deeply believing fully they are just an individual person in a vast and often cruel universe.
Most of this can ‘feel’ like ‘losing the SELF’ but that is NOT possible since the SELF You Are is eternal. No matter what your current state of awareness is, You Are the SELF ‘only’ and WILL remember this Truth when you have had enough of dreaming.
