Maybe we don’t have to, maybe there’s a better way

The state we get in when we meditate

The not-quite-sleep state

Or the mostly sleep state

Or, perhaps, even the sleep state (presuming that mediation-sleep is different than sleep-sleep, which is my experience)

We/some call it unconsciousness or semi-consciousness

I don’t think so

I think it’s a lie our egos tell us

I think it’s, if anything, hyperconscious

More connected to whatever-you-want-to-call-it (the divine, god, the universe…)

It’s not UNconscious

It’s egoless (or, ego-reduced) consciousness

All of our individual egos and whatever group ego there might be have a HUGE stake in us not believing this

Our ego carries our sense of self, our traumas, our fears, and our survival…
