    Default Waking up

    The path i am currently on, doesn't require a label nor the need to validate it, just acceptance that this is currently happening.

    I find myself momentarily seeing with new eyes .. The environment has always been there but on occasion's it's like i am seeing it for the first time.

    The peace that radiates from my soul, put in the simplest of terms makes me smile for no real reason.

    Eckhart Tolle's 'The power of now', although an inspirational read made me question if i should infact aim to feel this force all the time for i enjoy the random moments where i subconsciously flick the switch and see/feel differently.

    The other day i stated what i am to someone, which looking back now, i realise this is not true, it's a connotation i have placed on myself, be it for safety, protection or other reasons.

    I am happy that i have woken up but like a bear with a sore head, i have a long way or maybe not, until i truly come to my senses of 'Who am i?'

    I am also aware that although i can change my life situation for what i believe is the better, until i change myself then i will remain the idiot with a new life situation.

    How has your Waking up/Awareness/Enlightenment changed you?
    Has there been any downfalls?
    Is it possible to wake up the masses, or should it always fall on the individual?

    (This is my mind speaking and not the source beyond it, lol)

    Thank you in advance

    I go through spells of evolution too, and I love them.

    You are a child of the universe, and should be at peace as you watch it unfold around you, whether you understand it or not. The universe actually needs your help, so just by observing it you learn about it, and if you interact with it, then it will take you along on its own momentum as it continues to unfold and deliver you to new heights. Be careful though, don't try to fight the unfolding of the universe, because it will smoosh you.

    The journey is half the fun, maybe even more!

    Yes, but self awareness is a major step forward, and if you have acomplished that, you have won half the battle.

    As I have become bored/frustrated with certain aspects of my life I begin to "molt" out of them. I seek the info that I need to identify my new path, and once I hone in on it, I fire forward and evolve.

    Oh dear God yes. BUT - once I realize I am someplace in life I don't want to be, I write off the downfalls associated with exiting that scene and getting to a better one as "cost of doing business" or "CODB."

    You can speak tothe masses, but only those ready and willing to hear you and change themselves as they deem necessary will hear you. Nowadays, I focus on helping people who help themselves. That way I am not wasting cycles. I'm too busy for that.

    gz for your dose of dimethyltryptamine without dying(or almost dying). dont let it fool you into believing into higher forces or something stupid like that even tho they might seem to be true, but the truth is that you just had higher than normal dose of hallucinogenic substance that is created by you

    Being conscious in the moment is what its about and being aware of the energy shifts that are going on around us. I liked this article - Stop Trying to Live and Start Living
