Simple Analogy

I watched the movie Leap this evening and I highly recommend it, especially for those of us who have already been "awakened." Being awakened in my opinion, are those who are seeking truth, or are already on a spiritual path towards higher consciousness.
He used a simple analogy that I found fascinating to compare those who are still "sleeping."
When you begin to become aware or enlightened with concepts, you can no longer claim ignorance. You can no longer play victim to the external circumstances.
It's like adults want to be like the little child who doesn't want to get out of bed. The parent wakes them up and they still want to sleep a little longer.
This is a simple analogy of people who are being called to be awaken and are choosing to sleep a little while longer because it's easier to blame others rather than take personal responsibility for ourselves.
Isn't this fascinating?

  1. That is a great analogy and it also makes me think of the same affect when we know how to reach our goals, yet we say... "oh.. tomorrow I will really get serious about it." I am learning that today IS tomorrow. :) The time to really live and appreciate all that we know and understand is now.
