Awakening and suffering

The pain of waking up

Additional suffering

Existence is a (long) series of trials; to wake us up or strengthen us.
Their intensity, their violence, depends on the depth of our sleep
and what we are able to bear.

 « The wisdom of ancient traditions speaks to us tirelessly of inner life and we persist in understanding outer life.
 Like the quest for the Grail, the quest for the inner journey represents the gradual development of the soul's life, the passage from a state of drowsiness to a state of awakening. »
(Patrick Drouot)

What is awakening?

  The task of the animal is centered on itself.
  He only enjoys what is his.
  Its air, its food, its child.

  It's (must be) just the opposite in humans.
 [ Dialogues with the Angel ]

In a state of non-awakening, we give our attention only to our person and to what revolves around it.

« The world is in the state it is in because it is full of sleepwalkers. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

« The men who are still sleeping each live in a different world; those who have awakened all live in the same world. »
( Heraclitus (Greek philosopher ~540 BC) )

 Yes, we are sleeping

For the one who sleeps, the real world does not exist.
When we're in our reality, no other exists.

 « What you accept as reality on one of the levels of consciousness immediately becomes a dream as soon as you wake up on the higher level, recognizing that it was not reality, but a projection of the Self, therefore a dream. Every dream is a reality as long as you believe it to be real. »
[ Elisabeth Haich, "Initiation" ]

 « You think you don't sleep, but you are seriously mistaken! The night of the nonchalance and the warmth envelops you…. »
[ Celestial Messages from Pierre Monnier ]

  The dreamer does not dream that he is sleeping, but that he is awake.
  He acts, he goes, he comes, he speaks.
  In reality, he lies down and sleeps.
  The dream is preparation.
  The little child, when he is not yet born,
  also dreams of the day in his mother's womb.
  If he didn't dream, he couldn't be born.
  If you saw yourself for a single moment! You are lying in the void and you are sleeping.
  Motionless and quiet.
  Your foot does not run.
  Every move you make is just a dream... do you believe it? Dream...
 [ Dialogues with the Angel ]
 « You pass through the earthly trial like a vapor – unconsciously! All the tribulations that should give you the jump you need to wake up, remain powerless and in vain. »
[ Celestial Messages from Pierre Monnier ]

 « Life on earth is an apprenticeship. One of the first things to learn is to see through the slag fog in which you are immersed. If you are dazzled by illusions, by immediate pleasures, by vain ambitions, you are not only blind, but deafened. You cannot hear the voice of conscience if your whole being is deadened with trivialities. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

The author (medium) receives a message from her deceased brother:

  - It's funny, when you get here you recognize the places where you came at night while sleeping. We are not disappointed.
 In fact today, I woke up in the middle of my dream!
adds Christian, very happy with his definition.
« When you are on Earth, you think you are awake. In reality, you are asleep. »
[ Sylvie Lorain-Berger, "The messengers from beyond" ]

 ...and we don't want to wake up

« Most people don't like to be woken up, they prefer to sleep. »
[Inspired message to Neale Walsch]

 ☞ "Disturbing posts"

 « For us, with our labs, our research institutes, our statistics, our performance, Orientals seem like dreamers. But for the Asians - who have kept the traditional mentality -, it is on the contrary us, who are in the middle of a dream, devoting our energies to infantile ends, to dangerous amusements which divert us from the sole purpose of human life - and happiness. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'Yoga and spirituality' ]



 But why wake up?

« Being more aware leads to being less manipulated by our emotions.
 Awakening puts an end to Illusion, frees from Ignorance.
 Consciousness is based on vigilance. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

 « Every man carries within him, alongside his everyday personality, a superior man. This superior man☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

Every being is connected to their inner Self,
which is connected to God.

 Our inner being

 « In you there are two characters, one terrestrial, stuck to matter, mired in its heaviness, and the other celestial, letting itself be carried by the light. The moment you conceive your two poles, you become greedy for unity and begin your quest for purity. But that's also where the trouble begins! In the innocence of unconsciousness you found a certain tranquility, operating in the same patterns for generations, fit to taste the pleasures of the flesh.
 However, as soon as your consciousness opens to greater lucidity, your thirst for clarity comes up against the shadows.
 In the grip of an existential despair, your mind then plays monumental tricks on you. You become the prey of grief, terrible doubts, loneliness and your impatience.
 We are with you more than ever in these wanderings. Because then we recognize in you the flame, the inner fire.

 Then begins an interior dialogue between your soul, which has already recognized us, and us who are your servants, your companions on the way. At your side, ready to support you in the difficult passages, smiling at your stammerings as a child of light.

 In your heart of hearts, ego of earth and soul of light manifest themselves to each other and show themselves in turn. There is no point in adjusting them with a master's hand, there is no point in wishing for their fruitful friendship. Their role is not to oust each other. Thus you grow, by making in you the union of your part of incarnated man and your part of brilliance of light. It is there, in the balanced axis between these two aspects of yourself, that you touch that you touch the new dimension that allows you to Over-Live (among earthly torments). Then your personality of light irrigates your being incarnated in matter for a happy birth: that of the new Man in you, an incarnated reflection of the Father Creator. »
[ Brigitte Quéro, "Spiritual Messages" ]
following...
remains hidden until it is awakened. And each one can only awaken this superior man in him by himself. As long as this higher man is not awakened, the possibilities of acquiring supersensible knowledge which sleeps in every man remain hidden.

  This superior man then becomes the inner master; he who with a sure hand directs the conduct of the outer man. As long as the latter led the boat, the inner man was his slave.
[ Rudolf Steiner ]

 « The sleeping man, the slave man, is condemned to oscillate according to emotions which he does not control. We must act and no longer react. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

We fight to impose ourselves, to defend ourselves, to make a place for ourselves in the sun. This is necessary, but the helm, the course, must be left to the mind, to the ego, which only reacts to stimuli. That's why we need to keep our conscience alert.

 « What matters above all is that we walk consciously through life. »
(Henry Ford)

 « If you are dazzled by the illusions that every society fabricates, by immediate pleasures, by vain ambitions, you are not only blind, but also deafened. You cannot hear the voice of conscience if your whole being is deadened with trivialities. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

 How to wake up?

 « To stop, even for a moment, can be a blessing. Look around you, slowly, and linger on those things you didn't notice when you passed them: the deep smell of the earth just after the rain, that curl of hair on your beloved's forehead, playing with a child.
 When you walk in this state, you breathe in every flower, you fly with every bird, you feel every crunch under your feet. You encounter wisdom and beauty. You don't have to leave your body to experience it. This is the state of true awakening.
 A smile can take you there. A simple smile. Stop everything, for a moment, and smile. It was nothing. Just because it's good. Smile a lot. It will cure all your ailments.
 Some people meditate for years and never experience this. The important thing is your degree of openness, your surrender to all expectations. Most people are sleepwalkers, unconscious, they go through life without consciousness. »
[Inspired message to Neale Walsch]

  The only way to wake up is to stop dreaming.
  As long as you pay attention to the dream
  ...you sink into it, more and more,
  because you take it for the waking state.
  Everyone who begins to awaken says,
  « That's not true. - and then they wake up.
  The dream is almost like the day before. It is misleading.
  You all dream.
 [ Dialogues with the Angel ]

 Choose your reality

 « The reality of the external world only exists in proportion to your attachment to the created; if the attachment disappears, the created also disappears; it is then that the supernatural life makes its appearance. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

  From dreamer, you will become awakeners.
  You've got to get to that point
  that whoever looks at you – wakes up.
 [ Dialogues with the Angel ]

  « Actually, I wonder if our biggest fault isn't our inattention. That of my gaze sliding over the surface of things, that of my distracted ear. »

A driver was waiting at the red light with a music blaring.
A reflection came to me: “If even when he is alone and quiet he becomes dazed, how could a thought come to inspire him? How could an angel help him?”

Awakening and suffering

In life we ​​doze, the daily routine is enough for us. But all the testimonies of the beyond say it: to be satisfied with it is to waste a great chance.

 « If there is an aurora borealis, will you let your friend sleep? »

We must move forward, raise our level of consciousness. And for that to wake us up, to come out of our torpor.
But it is not easy to tear oneself away from sleep.
