This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.

— The Dalai Lama

This is a wake-up call that no one will sleep through!

Every day that you live in the illusion, you are moving closer to the exhilarating moment of awakening. It is a moment that you cannot miss, because you have arranged your whole schedule within the illusion to ensure your presence in that moment. Your alarm clock has been set, its batteries are new, and when it sounds you will awaken. This is a wake-up call that no one will sleep through! And when you awaken you will be fresh — and filled with an energy and enthusiasm for life so far beyond anything you have experienced in the illusion that there are simply no words to describe it.

The state of full consciousness — into which you are soon to awaken — is the state of blissful exhilaration for which you have been longing and searching, and of which you have only the faintest trace of a memory . . . just enough to be sure, at the very deepest center of your being, that it truly exists, that it is where you belong, and that it is where you are going. When you are asleep and dreaming, there is a part of you that knows that you are asleep, and at times in your dream state you are also aware of being in a dream. It is at the center of your true and perfect being (which is at present “asleep” or unconscious) that this faint memory of Reality resides. It has been with you always, during all your human lifetimes in the illusion. It is there to ensure that you continue seeking your way Home, until you succeed in doing so — and awaken.

In the illusion you are never alone; you are always accompanied, encouraged, and supported by your wise and loving guides. So although you can dally there, perhaps even wander aimlessly for a while, you cannot become so disoriented that you are unable to find your way Home. You are truly taken care of in the most compassionate and understanding fashion so that no permanent harm can come to you. All that you can experience in the illusion are illusory events and situations that will not and cannot last. You are in fact eternally protected and eternally safe. So, focus on that truth, as it will assist you in your awakening process.

Your Father’s all-abiding Love and Will for you mean that the only event that can truly occur in the illusion is your awakening from it — into the brilliant light of Heaven (the only Reality), where you always have been and always will be. Your awareness and experience of your true state of beingness is being brought back on line, and it will be impossible for you not to awaken and revel once more in the wonder of your existence in your only true Home, where you are One with your eternally loving Father.

Know that this is to happen — nothing else is possible.

With so very much love, Saul.
