Waking Up To Waking Up To Waking Up
First, we wake up to lies and deception. Then we wake up from the pandemonium* of the pontificators** on podiums*** giving us antidotes that only make the lies and deception seem more real. Finally, we walk off into the sunset leaving it all behind, thankful that it was seeing the lies and deception that actually woke us up! 😀
* place of demons.** dogma laid down as undeniably true*** place above an audience
We realise that life is unsatisfactory. We seek answers in philosophies or spiritual traditions that conjure up a set of ideas and rituals to counter this feeling of dissatisfaction, but all they do is create temporary antidotes. The antidotes make us feel that the dissatisfaction is real – so the dissatisfaction returns … and antidotes become a business.
Finally, we decide on what actually works for us – the realisation that lies, deception and antidotes are a way of life – and we live happily ever after, knowing that the world iscrazy, and so now it all makes sense! 😀
Realising the dream is a sign post to waking up.
