Wakefulness_Gautam Buddha

Gautam Buddha Dhammapada Teachings - WakefulnessWakefulness is the way to life.The fool sleepsAs if he were already dead,But the master is awakeAnd he lives forever.He watches.He is clear.How happy he is!For he sees that wakefulness is life.How happy he is,Following the path of the awakened.With great perseveranceHe meditates, seekingFreedom and happiness.So awake, reflect, watch.Work with care and attention.Live in the wayAnd the light will grow in you.By watching and workingThe master makes for himself an islandWhich the flood cannot overwhelm.The fool is careless.But the master guards his watching.It is his most precious treasure.He never gives in to desire.He meditates.And in the strength of his resolveHe discovers true happiness.He overcomes desire -And from the tower of his wisdomHe looks down with dispassionUpon the sorrowing crowd.From the mountain topHe looks down at thoseWho live close to the ground.Mindful among the mindless,Awake while others dream,Swift as the race horseHe outstrips the field.By watchingIndra became king of the gods.How wonderful it is to watch.How foolish to sleep.The beggar who guards his mindAnd fears the waywardness of his thoughtsBurns through every bondWith the fire of his vigilance.The beggar who guards his mindAnd fears his own confusionCannot fall.He has found his way to peace.
