To say that one has satori [awakening/enlightenment] means in reality that one is in an abnormal condition, like the madman, like most people, for whom a normal condition means money, good food, honors, sex, clothes, cars, and so forth.
Yet all of those are only vain illusions of existence and they appear as such in the moment of death. When the body is put into its coffin, the body itself is an illusion.
When we understand this, our life gains new strength and we no longer need to be afraid of anything or delude ourselves with decoration.
Our life becomes peaceful and we have true inner freedom. That is the meaning of satori.
