Staying awake means being engaged and present with the state of the world.
It means being aware of what’s happening in the world, both the “bad” and the “good”. It means maintaining this alertness and openness without sinking into denial of the extent of our challenges, or into nihilism that efforts for change are futile.
Staying Awake means developing the ability to “sustain our gaze” at the world in all of its chaos and turmoil, love and loss, and remember who we are and how much power we have to create change.
It means practising awareness of all the positive actions and initiatives that are occurring around the world like small pinpoints of light creating a vast network of change.
