There are various form of sleep or dormant state in youth life.
Lack of inner awareness or self-awareness is a spiritual sleep.
Ignorance is a trap for someone who should have wisdom. This includes over confidence of self-fate and fortune. Without doing anything. Youth is reluctant to learn or strive hard according to his goal. If one is over-confident, time may run out. It may rule out. Strengthen your mental muscles to give importance to things which have been neglected by the self.
-Sleeping in indulgence and luxury.
-Sleeping out of hopelessness, depression.
-Sleeping because of ambiguity, duality, confusion, lack of clarity.
Sleeping out of negligence. Will see, will do, things will happen on time, will plan, let me think etc. are the words of negligence. Youth do hear alarm which awakens them such sleeps. This kind of alarm includes constructive criticism from parents, teachers and other well-wishers. But they stay negligent to such alarms, they have the habit to ignore such alarms, they don’t respond to them and that is dangerous. There are warning bells which needs to be heard, but we ignore them. Fortune knocks the door only once and it is up to us to take the opportunity.
One needs understanding, power to hear alarm. Attention is the key. The need is also of energy and enthusiasm. Young minds are not ready to understand what one may face due to ignorance. One must accept, be humble in understanding such kind of sleep. Otherwise one will be under pressure, tension. In the beginning, this may look ok but later this will damage your life.
