If you were a little child in your house? And you hear a noise and you open your door and you see a thief in your house. And you go to your father’s room, your mother’s and your father’s room.
What is the first thing you’re going to do to your father?
“Wake up, Wake up! Wake up.”
And the father might wake up and go, “What?!”
“There is a thief out there.”
“But why didn’t you just say ‘a thief, a thief, a thief’?”
There is no point in saying “a thief” if your father's asleep! Right?!
So, you’ve got to wake him up first! Right?
That’s what I am doing. I want to wake you up. I want to wake you up. And once you are awake, now I will tell you, there are so many thieves that are robbing you blind.
They’re robbing you blind, every single day. Wake up. That’s what this Knowledge is about,
“Wake up. Wake up!”
This is what kindness is all about, “Wake up!” And you wake up. And you will be able to see the thieves that are stealing you blind every single day Every single day.Wake up!
You tell yourself lies. And the world doesn’t have to lie to you! You are quite capable of telling lies to yourself. “Wake up! Wake up!”
When you have a nightmare, and you might be screaming in your nightmare because it’s so real. “Wake up! Wake up. Wake up.”
That’s what Knowledge is. That’s what hope is. That’s what kindness is. That’s what understanding is. “Wake up.”
That’s what I’m trying to do. You want to sleep! And you’ll feel more comfortable sleeping. And I am more comfortable waking you up.
So, I try. I try. I try.
