There are three kinds of people in the world: those who are asleep, those who are stirring, and those who are awake.
If you try to wake up the sleeping person he will just mumble and go back to sleep.
If you wake up the stirring person he will wake up just long enough to curse you and then go back to sleep.
Instead of trying to wake them up, if you come across someone who is asleep or stirring what you should do is fluff their pillow, tuck them in, and kiss them on the forehead.
The important joy for those who are awake is to seek each other out, connect with others who are awake, talk, sing and celebrate together. This will create a groundswell of awareness.
As this groundswell increases and spreads out, it will awaken the stirring and will begin to stir those who are still sleeping.
