Have you experience an instant sense of regret when you awoke? It normally goes with a silent sigh.

"Why am I awake?"

And then theology (or Anthony Robbins') starts flowing in, telling you that it's a new day to be who you are meant to be. And if you allow it a while of consistancy, naturally the theology will just slip in even before you manage to rhetorize.

The moment your legs touch the floor, a second sigh came. Your body is telling your brain to pump some watts from other body parts to your legs, especially the muscles surround the ankles. Your eyes are probably still shut.

It's easier for a space shuttle to take off.

Perhaps that's the most dilemmical moment of the day. Even after you stood up, the dilemma remains. And there are signs that show it. You start scratching a part of your body even though it is not itchy. The scratch is a desperation that expresses the oppression sustained by the dilemma. It's a reminder that you need. A reminder to remind you that you are already awake.

If there is a mirror in the room, you will turn to it, curiously finding out how is the person in the mirror looked like at that moment. With whim, the mirror says, "You're rotting."

What happened to the Imago Dei, the Image of God?

"It's a given," you excused.

"The Imago Dei is not locatted on humans' face. The imagery of an "image of God" is in its semantic function. It simply means we are the reflection of our creator."

Your senses start coming back.
