Sleep Equality

Consciousness is a subjective experience. Each one of us perceives this differently. Everyone’s experience is different and the way to experience consciousness is different. This is probably because each of us spend most of our time distinguishing between true consciousness and mindfulness. Because of this conflict, we consider subjective truths as absolute truth and thus the reality.

Because these realities are different for each one of us, including non-human species, there are so many subjective realities that constantly evolves and conflicts with each others. This probably is the the largest cause of different manifestation of reality that we all experience and end up considering this as the absolute truth.

There is one major interaction between consciousness and absolute reality is SELF. We have layered up our consciousness with physical and emotional realities. These layers or subjectivity creates, rather adds nuisance, in our quest to understanding the true consciousness. In this layers we get lost and end up adapting to qualities such as – fear, anger, love, hatred, ego, selfishness, ignorance, lust, and many more.

The varying degrees of these qualities give us our identities. The person in me is different than people around me is due to the balanced out equation of all these variables that add up to the layer in between my true self and my subjective self. The subjective self is always changing, always evolving and definitely not constant or predictable. We end up believing that we are beautiful/smart because we have had compliments from others and we are fed with those compliments. Similarly, a person if is being told to be stupid/ignorant, he would end up believing in such realities.

One of the most beautiful ironies of our nature is that the sleep creates equality in all of us. Its only during deep sleep that we all loose our identity. During this state, there is no ego about being poor or rich, short or tall, beautiful or ugly, male or female. This is the time where all the subjective realities are shut down, layer by layer. The whole city, state or country sleeping and falling into deep sleep the same time will at the same time be equal. They would have forgotten their race, their creed, their religions, their citizenship and many other labels that we have efficiently created.

Isnt this all very interesting? What is your identity while you are deep sleep?
