Spiritual Awakening — What they Are, Why they Occur, and How they Happen

Gradual awakening means practicing meditation and mindfulness, service, and altruism. It means embracing quietness, simplicity, and inactivity so that we become comfortable within our inner spaced learn to be. It means learning to be quiet and misidentify with our random thought-chatter so that we know the peace of inner stillness and connect with our deepest nature. It means softening the strong boundaries of the ego so that we connect with other human beings, with nature, and with the whole cosmos. It means letting go of our psychological attachments to uncover the essence that they obscure and to allow our latent higher selves to emerge. And perhaps most fundamentally, gradual awakening means remodeling our psyche, transforming the self-system of sleep into the self-system of wakefulness. There’s no reason why this should involve any individual effort. It’s not a question of pushing or striving, but rather of aligning ourselves with a process that is already under way, like allowing ourselves to float along with the fast-flowing current of a river. And at the same time, in a symbiotic way, our own momentum will intensify the momentum of the whole process itself. The universe wants us to wake up and will happily guide us toward wakefulness, if we create the right conditions.
