3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
But as awareness expands, you can see that there isn't a "you" and "them" - it's all "you"! Everything is just Physics in action. Furthermore, there is the realization that perception is very limited in scope. Your limited experience does not add up to a grasp of Absolute Reality, and is little more than a flawed map within which your character operates.
You ultimately see that what you experience is a movie - one of an infinity, and one's true ultimate purpose is to share and pass on information - this is how the universe gets to understand itself. An individual does not have to be "awake" to do this - information will inevitably be passed on anyway. However being awake has one great single benefit - peace of mind. You can enjoy the movie without being lost in it.
Peace of mind is the best feeling the universe can offer. Imagine an orgasm of low intensity but which just keeps going on and on!

Attractive defendants are not only statistically less likely to be convicted, but when they are, they are likely to suffer less severe punishment than an unattractive person convicted of the same offence.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Life is a constant battle against deadlock. As long as we are alive, as long as we continue challenging ourselves, we are bound to come up against difficult obstacles that need to be overcome. If life were all smooth sailing, if we never encountered setbacks, that in itself would be a sign of stagnation.
