“Why go to birth and death to understand what you daily experience in sleeping and waking?…

“Why go to birth and death to understand what you daily experience in sleeping and waking? When you sleep, this body and world do not exist for you and these questions do not worry you, and yet you exist, the same you that exists now while waking. It is only when you wake up that you have a body and see the world. If you understand waking and sleep properly you will understand life and death. Only waking and sleeping happen daily so people don’t notice the wonder of it but only want to know about birth and death.”

~Ramana Maharshi
