A term you may be hearing a lot lately is The Great Awakening. What is the Great Awakening?
There are as many different versions of the Great Awakening as there are people.
The Great Awakening is the internal realization that in one way or another, we have given our power away to external authorities and we no longer agree with doing that.
Whether it is awakening to the corruption of the government, institutions or even one’s own family, awakening is like living in the dark, being accustomed to the dark and suddenly a dim light appears in the dark and we can see our surroundings like never before. As we embrace this new light, it becomes brighter and we become more and more aware of what is really happening.
At first it may be scary for some people, depending on how much power they have given to the people or ideas they have agreed with. Yet awakening is a process. In the beginning there may be shock, then denial and isolation, eventually anger, bargaining, depression, and finally forgiveness and acceptance.
Not everyone will participate in the Great Awakening. Some people will prefer to remain sleeping. Others prefer the darkness for various reasons, mostly because they themselves are performing deeds that can only be done in the dark. These kinds of people will inevitably be exposed by the light that is getting brighter. Like the sunrise brings the daylight, there is no stopping the Great Awakening on this planet. If people still want to experience living in darkness, they will have to find somewhere else to be. For most humans, it is hard to imagine why anyone would prefer the darkness. It’s important to remember that all paths lead back to the One, even the dark path. It just takes longer and is much more painful.
It is not up to anyone else to say how fast or whether another person should awaken. The most loving thing you can do for a sleeping person is to make them comfortable until they wake up on their own. There are people who will be asking questions, wanting to know more. These are the people that you can communicate about your awakening with.
The Great Awakening is all about remembering that you are an expression of The One Infinite Creator. There is no judgement in the One. Every experience is valuable for the One to fully express and understand itself. Each of us plays a role in the awakening. Every time we become aware, every time we disagree with those who seek to control us, every time we we take back our power and exercise our free will, we are accelerating the great awakening as a whole movement.
