inner wakefulness

Inner Wakefulness

This place is a dream

only a sleeper considers it real
then death comes like dawn
and you wake up laughing at what you thought ..........was your grief

A man goes to sleep in the town
where he has always lived
and he dreams he's living in another town
in the dream he doesn't remember the town he's sleeping in his bed in
he believes the reality of the dream town
the world is that kind of sleep

Humankind is being led along an evolving course,
through this migration of intelligences and though
we seem to be sleeping
there is an inner wakefulness,
that directs the dream
and that will eventually startle us back to the truth
of who we are

Jalaludin Rumi
