A Cup of Tea (59)
Be aware in the waking state,
don’t try to become aware in sleep or dreams.
If you become aware in the waking state awareness
in dreams and sleep comes easily – but you don’t have
to do anything for it, doing only creates difficulties.
Sleep reflects the waking state:
what we are when awake we are in sleep.
If we are asleep in the waking state
only then is sleep really sleep;
the stream of thoughts during the waking state
becomes the web of dreams in sleep.
Being aware in the waking state
will begin to reflect itself in sleep too,
and if there are no thoughts in the waking state
dreams disappear altogether in sleep.
Everything else is fine.
My regards to everyone there.
