Two possible ways to tell if you are spiritually asleep


You, my dear reader, are spiritually asleep.


One way to tell if you are spiritually asleep is if you chose to be offended or angry with the above statement.

Another way to tell if you are spiritually asleep is that you do not know what it means to be spiritually asleep (or spiritually awake).

It is probably not helpful to ask other mortals what it means either, since it is likely that they do not know, or find it difficult to express in words.

This is also related to why we do not reveal many of the details of the temple to others. Since we have a partial understanding of things, when we reveal what we think the meanings of certain things are, what we are revealing is our own ignorance and partial understanding.
