It might be time to wakeup

In a moment of great inspiration, Jim Morrison, the talented vocalist of the Doors once said: “I like any reaction I can get with my music. Just anything to get people to think. I mean if you can get a whole room full of drunk, stoned people to actually wake up and think, you’re doing something.”

We think Jim Morrison here expresses a common sentiment. Sometimes it can seem so hard to get people to wake up, to live deliberately, to think things through. Heck, sometimes it seems hard to get ourselves to wake up. Only after something as sudden and unexpected as a near-death car accident, news we have a dreaded disease, our spouse is leaving us, then maybe, just maybe we may wake up and realize that we have been living like lemmings. But, still, no guarantee, because we are lazy. We like our predictable patterns that lead us nowhere.

So what can be done? How can we wake ourselves up, and then turn and help others to wake up. And how do we know, exactly, that we are asleep in the first place? Well, have you ever felt that quiet longing for something more? Are you wondering why your hours are stained with anxiety? Are you restless? And have you not been doing anything about it for too long? Does the same bad outcome happen over and over again? These are clues that you need something to breathe new life and new perspective. These are intimations that it might be time to turn off the TV, stop repeating those patterns, and start doing that hard and difficult human activity.

It might be time to wake up.
