    Wake up from your sleep is a message that comes from all spiritual wisdom traditions. My dad used to sing the song of awakening in Hindi every morning reminding him and us to wake up." Utha jaga musafir bhore bhai, aba rayan kahanataka sovat hai. Jo sovat hai vo kohovat hai, jo jagat hai so pavat hai." Wake up O traveler ! Morning has dawned.Wake up! There is no more night. Why do you keep on sleeping? The one who sleeps loses; the one who wakes up gains." This message has helped me through out my life. When I am not awake I fall down. I hurt mtself and others in my life. The falling down is a wake up call for me. I wake up from my sleep state, learn from my mistake and walk on the right path. Life is a journey, a process. It's all about choice making. When I am awake I make wise choices. As I am getting older my awakend state is getting longer with a few occasional short naps.

    I love the Arabs saying: "The nature of rain is the same, but it makes thorns grow in marshes and flowers in the garden." It boils down to choce making. Wise choice making is like the rain growing flowers in the garden of life.

    May we ramain awake and receive the blessings "All is well!"
