"

One day while a mystical teacher was again explaining awakening
to his followers, something quite extraordinary occurred:
he stopped in mid sentence, and said: “Actually I have no idea what being awake is, and in truth have no real interest in it.
I started out wanting to be an entertainer,
but just didn’t have a particular talent to make it.

Then one day I read about how some people believe they are,’asleep,’
and will do most anything to learn how to, ‘wake up,’
so I starting talking about it as though I knew what I was doing;
it was simply a way of finally becoming the center of attention with
SOME group of people.

If not real show biz – then this,”

and upon hearing these words, several of those present suddenly -- woke up.

vertical line Nobody wants the truth, so it's concealed as false. But the very thing to open up the cosmos. Ahhh... Created, without the burden of concept of sin any longer!
