AWAKENING OF CONSCIOUSNESS
This is our "Karmic Inheritance"
Gift from God
The Awakening of Consciousness is what humans have been working towards for thousands of years even though most of us are unaware that this is happening. Through the evolution of mankind and our karmic inheritance, we have prepared ourselves for the next stage of our development which is the emergence of consciousness or the manifestation of the Awakening Process.
We have paid "Our Dues", so to speak, and have earned the gift of Consciousness. Over many lifetimes we have waded through the mud of physical desires created by the ego to keep us distracted from reality. Now we are ready for the awakening of consciousness to emerge within us. Eventually we will become fully conscious and self realized. Many call this state of being Enlightend which means you have transcended the ego and have removed the veil that has inhibited your ability to see and understand Universal Truth.
The awakening of consciousness typically starts slowly as a questioning about life, and with questions you begin to have "aha" moments as you connect with your spirit and the Universal guidance that accompanies it which will begin to answer your questions. You have always had this connection, you just haven't realized it. These questions arise as we begin to see the insanity and dysfunction that our world currently operates under. Ironically, the answers to all of life's questions already lie within you and as you awaken, you will gain further access to this knowledge that will help you start to make sense of things.
David R Hawkins is the leading authority on the subject matter of consciousness. His work includes the creation of the "scale and map of consciousness", the explanation of kundalini energy, the use and reference to 12 step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous that deal with issues like alcoholism and drug abuse, "A Course In Miracles", and many other helpful topics.

Consciousness will transform our fear based way of life into a joyous experience that is loving in nature. This transformation is due to the emergence of our "natural state" that is uncovered once the awakening of consciousness has removed the illusions that are blinding us from the reality of life. Unfortunately, the awakening of consciousness doesn't mean that we immediately awaken to a Heaven like state. In fact, becoming conscious of reality can be a nightmarish affair at first as the insanities of our world flood your awareness. Next you start to become aware of your own insane behavior that is even more difficult to accept. As you accept responsibility for your behavior you finally empower yourself to change it. Eventually you will gain understanding for the purpose behind the insanity. That purpose is for your personal and spiritual growth.
The transition into conscious living can make you feel isolated and alone and we have personally found it helpful to share your experiences with others who are already going through the process. Since thoughts aren't personal, chances are someone will validate some of your experiences which can bring peace as you realize you are not alone on this journey.
God lives in the silence and as we learn to quiet our minds and live in the present moment, we begin to hear and experience this connection to the divine.
Eckhart Tolle's books "The Power of Now" and "A New Earth" are particularly helpful in learning how to live in the present moment. He explains how the awakening of consciousness leads us to realize that the past and future do not exist and that all we can really experience is the present moment which he calls "living in the now". Eckhart's work has been extremely helpful to us and to learn more,

It helps to understand the Description of Awakening because it can clear up some of the questions you might have about the process itself.
We are loving, spiritual beings at our core, who are becoming self aware as the Awakening of Consciousness manifests in our lives. Eventually, the insane behavior that is predominate in our lives will change from destructive to life affirming.
Simply stated, the awakening of consciousness on our planet will transform our perception of life from fear and isolation to love and unification as we understand that everything has purpose and all of it is designed to help us realize this truth. We are all one, therefore we can't actually harm one another. Not matter how life appears, we have been sent nothing but Angels to assist us on our journey towards peace, joy, happiness, and love.
"How best to "serve the highest good" is in accordance with the prevailing level of consciousness of the observer. There is no single answer for everyone."
David R Hawkins
"Although the human mind likes to believe that it is "of course" dedicated to truth, in reality, what it really seeks is confirmation of what it already believes. The ego is innately prideful and does not welcome the revelation that much of its beliefs are merely perceptual illusions."
David R Hawkins
"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true." Paraphrased
