Spiritual awakening and enlightenment is our ultimate purpose as human beings

Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment, are terms that imply what we are knowingly or un-knowingly trying to achieve in this physical experience. Ironically, we are already enlightened beings that are covered up by toxic thinking created by the deceptions of the ego. The reality is that our journey never ends because we are infinite beings that never cease to evolve, but this physical experience is finite and therefore holds an implied ultimate goal. Of course we have as many lifetimes as we need to achieve that goal.

Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment means to become
fully conscious and awakened

As we Awaken, our awareness and understanding of ultimate reality increases. Eventually we become conscious or enlightened which simply means we have transcended the Ego. In an unconscious state the ego primarily dictates how we think, what we believe, and how we choose to conduct our lives. The higher your level of consciousness is, the less influence the ego has. Consciousness points out the lies and illusions created by the ego. The primary purpose of the ego is to distract us from reality. It's very existence depends upon this, that is why the ego is so convincing in the lies and illusions it creates. There have been people throughout history, and even today, who have reported a freedom from the ego so we know this state of being is possible if not prevalent in the human condition.

Typically, when the majority of human beings reach enlightenment, their physical journey is over and their current life comes to an end because they let go of all things physical including life itself. On rare occasions, some individuals are drawn to stay and share what they have come to understand. Three of those individuals are featured in this website because of the enormous impact their lives and work have in assisting us on our journey towards spiritual awakening and enlightenment.

David R Hawkins, until his recent passing, was one of the most conscious individuals on the planet. He has written many books where he shares what he has experienced during his ascent to the highest levels of Consciousness and how those different levels affect human beings. 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 and "A Course In Miracles". His many books on the topic such as; "Truth vs. Falsehood", "Power vs. Force", "Transcending the Levels of Consciousness", and more are fundamental in helping explain how consciousness works.

Eckhart Tolle has written books such as "The Power of Now", and "A New Earth", and his work primarily focuses on living in the "present moment" or in the "now". His work helps us understand that the present moment is all there really is, and living in the past or future is merely a distraction from reality created by the ego.

The work of Byron Katie, teaches us how to recognize and challenge our stressful thoughts. Ultimately what can be discovered, is that none of our stressful thoughts are true. Byron Katie's work is a practical, hands on method, that teaches this.

I believe Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment is our ultimate as human beings. As we slowly transcend the ego, we will begin to understand who we are as infinite spiritual beings. Fortunately, this is the karmic inheritance for all of us which means it is the only direction we are heading. So don't worry about reaching enlightenment because you are already on that path. Those who are reading this type of material, have become conscious participants in that journey. All one needs to do to accelerate the awakening process is be willing to focus on self awareness and the rest will take care of itself as consciousness emerges within you.

"Spiritual progress is based on acceptance as a matter of free will and choice, and thus everyone experiences only the world of his or her own choosing. The universe is totally free of victims, and all eventualities are the unfolding of inner choices and decisions."
David R Hawkins

"Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred."
Barbara De Angelis

"Illumination, Self-Realization, and Enlightenment denote the Divine states that have historically demonstrated the highest levels of Consciousness. These conditions represent the transcendence of the limitations of the constraints of the linearity of the ego and the emergence of the Radiance of the Infinite Reality and source of Existence.
Excerpt taken from "Transcending the Levels of Consciousness (The Stairway To Enlightenment)" by David R. Hawkins, M.D.,P.H.D.

"To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right."

"With spiritual maturity, one understands that this lifetime is precious and too valuable to waste on the ideas of being superior or other ego-inflating, vainglorious illusions."
David R Hawkins

"Gloria in excelsis Deo"

"Although the act of nurturing another's spiritual growth has the effect of nurturing one's own, a major characteristic of genuine love is that the distinction between oneself and the other is always maintained and preserved."
M. Scott Peck

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude."
Denis Waitley

The Purpose

Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment
is the purpose of all Human Beings whether they are aware of it or not.
Consciously or unconsciously, we are all playing a vital role in this development because that is the direction we are headed.

The Goal of this Website:

The Awakening Workshop's primary purpose is to help others transform their experience of life into one that is authentic and joyous by providing resources and personal examples to assist in becoming
self-realized and conscious of reality.

The teachings of:

David R Hawkins
Byron Katie
Eckhart Tolle
Taylor Hartman
have been fundamental in guiding us on the path towards enlightenment.

The culmination of everything we have experienced and learned
has led us to write our own book titled:
