The Way Of The Way 320

Awakening is the realization we don’t know anything. Enlightenment is knowing nothing.

Sleeping is a state of consciousness characterized by dreaming based on the illusion of knowledge.

Awakening begins with the realization that we don’t know anything.

This is startling, frightening as it separates us from the common thinking of others.

However, upon awakening, at first light, we take solace as every-thing is indescribably beautiful; always and all ways.

Soon after, we wonder what is this world, who am I?

Thus begins the process of enlightenment, as we fill with light until we and every-thing are the light.

Enlightened, we now know nothing, which is the essence of every-thing.
