Either we are asleep or we are awake. This is not a matter of choice. It is a simply a description of a state of being. 

When we are asleep we are split. When we are awake we are whole. 

When we are asleep we are in a world of choice. Should I do this or that, choose this or that, what if I do / what if I don't. If we are conscious while we are asleep we worry about our choices. We want to be good and make the right decisions. Whether unconscious or conscious, when we are asleep we are engaged in what the ancients called maya, or illusion. 

To be awake is to be whole. To be without choice. Then moment by moment life presents the right action and we live it. 

Good Friday 2018, Singapore.
