Since ancient times people have awoken. Today, people are awakening on a
much larger and faster scale. They are awakening out of the confinement
of the traditional religions and practices.
People Are Awakening
People are awakening without years of preparation and without the
cushion of old practices. The deconstruction process of awakening is
fast and often leads people tumbling down “the rabbit hole” of reality.
This translates into the demolition of all cultural glue and social
constructs one has learned through life and believed in, leaving some
people in a limbo of disbelief that can be quite disturbing.
Additionally, society at large is not so welcoming of changes resulting from
the Awakening process. Society prefers people to stay in a commonly
accepted reality mind frame. In general, questions that undermine the
roots of reality are not welcomed.
Society Likes Conformity
All those that ask uncomfortable questions due to the Awakening process
are in general marginalized by society. Unfortunately, those pushed
aside, are those who are able and ready to push the boundaries of
reality and come up with new and so very needed answers to old questions
without apparent solutions. By not integrating those visionaries, like
spiritual seekers, freedom activists, avant-garde artists, utopia
philosophers, inspired creators, heart mentors, society loses momentum
and steps into the decay of its establishes structures which are no longer able to
respond to the challenges of modernity, much less to future challenges.
Our social, political, economical and religious structures are
obsolete, and in accelerated decay.
To awake is to become a revolutionary, seeing through the deceit of the
external structures that we call society and culture, but mainly,
through our own blindness, the blindness that we were conditioned to
operate in our own Ego structures.
We all know and feel that something is very wrong in today’s world we
live in. The big changes can only occur from a revolution in
consciousness which aims for the renewal of ourselves, society and the
planet as a whole. This is the change of Awakening.
If you are Awakening you qualify for the role of Awake revolutionary,
but in doing so, you probably must be advised that is tough to go through
the “hell” of Awakening.
Some people point out some of the consequences of Awakening:
- Losing interest in gossip
- Stop watching TV
- No more pleasure from expensive material goods
- No longer fooled by psychopathic politicians and religious manipulators
- Beginning to see things as they are, beyond previous conditioning
Down The Rabbit Hole
Many people who go through the Awakening process, often mention that
they feel like the rug of society and culture is being pulled under
their feet. It is like losing all reference points you have. Your
“personal restart button” is pressed without any previous warning. You
then need to relearn most of the things from scratch: how to react in
social situations, in whom to trust, what is your personal purpose in
life, what new meaning is emerging from this experience. In the process,
you might feel disconnected and isolated, and end up marginalized on the
outer rim of society.
In other cases of Awakening (or just after the initial hellish phase)
you may enter into a different phase where you feel deeply connected to
everything and everybody, the rocks, the animals, the plants, the
cosmos, and another human beings, in a way that everything makes sense.
You tapped into a deep layer of meaning you never felt before. It is
like discovering that you possess a new language that describes and
articulates reality and existence, giving a new meaning to it. This is a
new feeling, like you never had before. Some even began to connect to
other dimensions of consciousness and relate with light beings.
The big problem with awakening is that it can go horrible wrong and
drive you mad. This is specially true if you end up at the mercy of
mainstream psychiatry and filled with drugs to “normalize” you, to make
you function in a sick society.
Awakening is a revolutionary act that dismantles the main power and
control structures we are so use to: culture, society, religion,
government, mainstream media and in the most intimate inside of each one
of us – The Ego.
When our ego collapses, or is put on hold, our reality filters stop
working too. Perhaps, for the first time we are able perceive and be
aware of a different reality. A sharp and clear perception of what is
without the control filters we are so use to.
Helping The Process
Today, more than ever, is a priority to help people who are awakening,
to help them to go through the experience with an alternative support
(as opposed to mainstream support, based on the medical model).
This support is not about to make them “normal” again but to help evolve
above normal, and integrate their new emerging capacities, skills,
ethics, meaning and purpose into an awake life worth living. This
support is not about indoctrinating people, is not about to tell them what to
believe or do. Not even how you should live your life, or even minimize
your suffering or despair. The support is to help you to become the new
you – Awaken.
