Sleep is the base material out of which the dreams can be dreamt. Confusion is the base material out of which this waking state can be perceived. Only when you are in the state of sleep, you can dream. Only when you are in the state of confusion, you can see this waking state. Understand, that is why confusion is very precious investment for you. It is one of the most precious investment. Let confusion not become your most precious investment. In every step, every line, every inch of your life, if confusion becomes your basic stand, basic foundation, then imagine the amount of time you are wasting, energy you are destroying.
There is a beautiful verse in the Taitirriya Upanishad: anando brahmeti vyajānāt (3.6) – Bliss is God, don’t waste it. You may think, what do they mean by don’t waste it. Don’t waste it by attributing it to your confusion. If you think confusion is bliss, if you maintain the stand that confusion is bliss, you are wasting your life, destroying your life. You are wasting the bliss, destroying bliss. anando brahmeti vyajānāt.
