Looking for Meaning in Awakening

One traveler’s tale into the outskirts of Japan and being awake…

Do you know what your goal is in life? Or do you know what it’s like to search for one? I sure as hell haven’t found my goal yet, but I’ve travelled a slight bit around the world (if you can call it that) and my way of traveling usually means that I encounter interesting souls. Uninteresting souls too, of course. One thing I’ve noticed is that it’s always quite easy to recognize people who have ‘awakened’, so to speak. This ‘awakening’ is impossible for me to define, but I hope I can at least convey a part of the concept. Awakened people are people who have thought about life and have realized that they have many choices. And they’re not entirely sure that the choice they’re currently on is the right one. They’re aware of their place in life, and their own (in)significance. All this sounds a bit silly, but condense these sentences and a whole lot more similar sentences into a concept in your mind, and you will be able to classify people into two groups: those who are awake, and those who aren’t.
