“And once you are Awake; you shall remain awake eternally.”
An Awakening occurs for many when our beliefs can no longer keep us in denial. It is realisation that the system we live in is of no benefit to us. We were indoctrinated into believing in the external authorities that would “help” us have a “full life”. When we awaken, we lose those beliefs, the limits, and the ego that attached us to them.
A Spiritual Awakening is when we look within and realise that we are more than what we have been told. We recognize that there is something within us that gives us knowledge as if from nowhere. This can only be explained as we have a spirit as well as a body. This spirit is the part of us that can travel outside the material realm.
With our former beliefs destroyed, we then look for new meaning to our existence. Some try to reattach to their former lives, but this effort is futile. We cannot return easily to a life of conforming to false belief systems. A system created to benefit only those who rule us. Most significantly, it is the realisation that death is not the end.
A Spiritual Awakening is probably one of the most agonizing phases of anyone’s life. The idea that it is a positive experience is only propaganda. It is not. We wake up and the world is a lie. Almost everything we believed in is no longer true and leaves us in anxiety. We have to find new meaning.
An Awakening is often called Spiritual because it becomes the realisation that death is not the end. Even so, there are many fatalities. Unfortunately, this is because it can occur near to death or suicide. Whether we who survive are lucky or not is debatable. It is difficult to know the truth; that we are stuck here on a slave planet living in an illusion designed to cause so many so much needless suffering.
Yet, the desire to survive and help others is strong in us who have had this experience. This is because of the realisation that the world is still a beautiful place to be in. It can be difficult to find meaning to life, but at the same time, it feels like exploring a new type of existence here on Earth. Most of the Awakened prefer isolation, so it is difficult to connect with one another even if we do feel a oneness.
