Asleep Living

*Asleep Living:
What I truly want in this Life, exists somewhere in the future or in a changed past.

*Awake Living:
What I truly want in this Life, is what I am in this very moment.

*Asleep Living:
My stress and anxiety, are helping me to achieve a future goal; if acquired, it will help me feel at peace.

*Awake Living:
My stress and anxiety, are internal indicators that show me I am clinging to something that is not true, here and now. Thus helping me to be aware of where my attention is.

*Asleep Living:
My emotions can threaten my future version of self, therefore I must do everything I can to not let them be what they are. I must only experience emotion that reinforces who it is I want to be.

*Awake Living:
My emotions are like the seasons, each one just as valuable as the next. For without sadness, there would be no happiness, without winter, there would be no summer. They are a gift that carry lessons that help me to discover peace on my own authority, rather than looking to other people or the future.

*Asleep Living:
My Suffering is a result of other people, or because my external behavior is unlovable. Suffering will go away, only if people change, or if I can force myself to change.

*Awake Living:
My Suffering is a result of a false perception that takes place within what I am. A product of trying to fix that which was never broken. The Suffering is a reminder that shows me I am no more and no less than anyone else.

*Asleep Living, is trying to be something other than what you are right now.

*Awake Living, is seeing clearly that you are already the fullness of Life.
