White Eagle on Awakening
My Journey of Awakening
Since I was 12 years old I’ve been on a spiritual quest. It started by doubting some of the dogmatic teachings of the Catholic Church. The God I conceived of just wouldn't have some of those rules. How could there be a devil if God is love and love is everywhere? Sometimes at night I would slip into a magical space, now I recognize it as a doorway into another dimension. In high school, I started reading all the books I could find by Hermann Hesse, Carlos Castaneda, Emerson, Thoreau, Huxley. By college, I added Frankle, Neitzsche , Kierkegaard, Swedenborg…
Since 2017 is The Year of Awakening, through my own experience and my research over the decades I’ve come up with 12 Phases of Awakening. Perhaps you recognize most of them? Perhaps you followed them in a different order? Perhaps the phases you experience spiral back on themselves? Or happen at the same time?
However it is for you, I hope this gives you some confirmation that no matter where you are or how it all started YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK!!
12 Stages of Awakening
The Urge/ the Call
You come to understand that there is more. Sometimes the Call is precipitated by a crises. You begin to ask the deeper questions of ‘Who Am I?’ It is an urge you are compelled to explore.
Doubting what you have been taught. Learning, reading, collecting information, hungry. You find yourself binging on new information and ideas. (This can unsettle those who are close to you. ;-)) You become disillusioned by the world and others who don’t question, who don’t hear the call. You pull back from family and friends, feeling isolated and not understood.
New Belief Systems
Based on all your new ideas you attempt to create new belief systems, new models for understanding the world. You try to re-organize your life accordingly. You seek confirmation that you’re on the right track. You expand your circle to include others who believe as you do.
Failure of the New Belief Systems
The new answers don’t fix everything. You still don’t feel peace and happiness. The dark night of the Soul. What now? You feel lost at sea.
Falling apart of the old and the new paradigms. You empty your basket of beliefs. You move beyond belief systems. Clear yourself of all the thinking.
Surrender into the unknown/ unknowable.
Beyond duality. Death of ego identity. Beyond self. Unattached to experience. Universal view. Cosmic connections.
Reference is inward instead of outside yourself.
Breakthrough from cause/effect. Free from drama, karma, worry, pain. You experience a fundamental new structure of yourself and world.
Quantum Still Point
Buddha moment. Silence of your Soul. This experience can be repeated at will.
Integration / Acceptance / Understanding
You are In the world but not of it. Fully present. No longer searching. You experience uncaused well-being. joy, (or not…). Everything you experience is perfect. Chop wood, carry water.
You know yourself as here, there and everywhere. All is good in all of creation. Timeless, infinite, multi-dimensional. Realization beyond self. Understanding beyond labels. Consciousness ever expanding. Timelessness. Pure synchronicity. At peace.
Enlightenment is realized not achieved.
