Wake Up and You Are It

Talk #36 of the Series, Beyond Psychology

"A man asleep can dream himself anywhere in the universe. From that point, to be awake will look thousands of lives away. But it is a dream; as far as the real sleep is concerned, awakening is just close by. Any moment you can wake up. Any situation can make you awake.

"The master's work is to create devices in which you can become awake. Sometimes very small things – just throwing cold water in your eyes will make you awake. Asleep, you were so far away, but when you wake up you will see that it was a dream that created the distance. Dreaming is the distance. Of course for dreaming, sleep is necessary, but the moment you are awake sleep disappears, and with it the whole world of dreams too."

Osho continues:
"The truth is that awakening is the nearest reality to you, just by the side of you. It is not far away; hence it cannot be made a goal. All goals are dreaming, all achievements are dreaming. Awakening cannot be a goal because the man who is asleep cannot even think of what awakening can be. In his sleep, he cannot make a goal of enlightenment – it is impossible. Or whatever he makes will be totally different from the reality of enlightenment. Enlightenment is part of your waking consciousness.

"In the East we have divided consciousness into four layers. The first that we know is so-called wakefulness. It is not really wakeful, because just underneath it dreams are floating. Close your eyes and you will have a daydream. Close your eyes and you will immediately see – imagination takes over, and you start going away from this moment, from here. In reality you are going nowhere, but in your mind you can go anywhere.

"So the first state is the so-called waking state; the second state is called sleep. We are aware of these.

"The third is called the dreaming state, because sleep can be without dreaming; then it has a different quality. It is very peaceful, very silent, dark and deepvery rejuvenating.

"So sleep is the second stage, below the so-called waking stage, and then comes the third stage, dreaming. Most of the time in your sleep you are dreaming. If you sleep eight hours, then six hours you are dreaming. Just here and there, like small islands, you are asleep; otherwise it is continuous dreaming.

"You don't remember it, that's why people think this seems too much – six hours of dreaming and only two hours of sleep. You remember only the last dreams when you are waking up, because only with your waking up your memory starts functioning; so it catches only the tail end of your dream world. You don't remember all the dreams, but only the dreams that happen just before you are waking up – the morning dreams.

"It was always understood in the East that these six hours of dreaming are as essential as those two hours of silent sleep."
