A Moment in Time: July 31st, 2012. Who’s in Control While You Sleep?
Last night, as I was closing my eyes getting ready to enter my magical world of dreams, my mind had to make itself one last question before my heart could start resting at ease. Why is it so easy for us humans to surrender once we know we need to go to sleep? Even for those who suffer from insomnia, we are generally open to go into that mysterious state where we don’t really know what happens to us. I find it so interesting to observe that while the average person in this planet is still trying to believe that he/she CONTROLS two-thirds of his/her life, this same person has already accepted in a natural way and since childhood, the fact that one-third of human life is spent in uncontrollable and unknown ways. Don’t you think that this is just a great example of how the ego mind loves to make us believe that we are truly in charge of the game of life?
My questions are only an invitation to reflect on this…
I have dedicated my whole life to learning how to stop believing that I am —that is my ego self— the one controlling my life and that which happens or doesn’t happen to me. Yes, I believe we do have many choices and also that we are capable of directing and redirecting our paths in many ways. But to say that we are the ones in total control is completely arrogant and fallacious especially when we are already witnessing that we don’t control and average of 33% of our 24-hour day.
Don’t you think our reality could flow so much easier if we’d surrender to life, not only during our sleep states but also during our awakened ones?
Until next time and don’t forget to be love!
