Many of these thoughts we have are unkind and detrimental to our well being. How many times have you found yourself putting yourself down for something you didn't do right, or found yourself getting angry or upset over some event, or even found yourself in a mental fight with someone?
Someone cuts you off on freeway and you immediately go spastic and begin to shoot mental bullets at them.
Those thoughts put you in a state of sleep and prevent you from being fully aware of present world around you.
In beginning of movie, Joe was in a constant state of psychic slumber. He had no amazement, no awe, no wonder of life. His life was despicable.
When Joe began waking up, his life began to turn to a state of amazement and awe and wonder at what was happening in present moment around him. Just watch scene where he is with DeDe at dinner and you'll see difference between a man at sleep and a man that is awake.
In fact DeDe says, "What's happened to you. This morning you were like a lump, now..... You're So Alive."
It is in this state of amazement that you often find children playing. They are having fun with life because they are not lost in thought about some fear, they are totally within and alive in present moment and awake to what they are doing.
These unkind thoughts we have draw us farther away from awe and amazement that life really is.
And as you begin to wake up and live in present moment, amazing things can and do happen.
Which way would you rather live?
In a world where you are lost in painful thoughts or a world where you are in a state of constant total amazement?
Go watch a cat. Cats are fully awake and aware in their own present moment. What creature is there that more lives a life of amazement than a cat?
Cat's don't get lost in thought like we do, they are fully aware of themselves and their environment all time. Now a cat may stare intensly at a predator, but it is not lost in thought.
To be fully awake to present moment, begin to watch your thoughts. Some of them may be ugly. When you practice watching your thoughts, you'll begin to see yourself going off in all different kinds of directions over nothing, it's these thoughts that keep us asleep and away from a state of wonder and awe.
Don't try to change them, don't begin to put yourself down for having them, for now, just watch them and see how you react to them.
Next work on being present in now. Watch yourself as you do everything. Become aware of where your arms are, where your legs are, what temperature is it. As you read this, watch yourself reading and be aware of where and who you are doing this.
Become fully awake to you and experiences of this present moment and you will begin to see amazement and wonder of your life as it should be.
