Dreaming, Awake

Our biggest illusion is to believe that the world “cannot function without us.”

That “we are here to make it a better place.”

And that, somehow, if we do not “do something,” our life is pointless, and “time is wasted.”

But really all we do is wasting time being asleep
(which is a paradox, really, since “time” as a concept—does it really exist?)

—But who is to say life is a dream, except for the Awakened One?
