What Is A Spontaneous Awakening?
Experiencing a spontaneous awakening can mean different things to different people, but it is essentially the experience of a revelation of the Truth of our Being, which happens spontaneously as opposed to it happening over time. We are not the body, nor are we the mind. We are experiencing the earth through the body, but our true nature is of pure energy and consciousness, and we are the observer of the activities of the body.
In Essence, A Spiritual Awakening, or a Spontaneous Awakening is a revelation of the truth of who and what you are.
Ten years ago I experienced a profound awakening that changed my life. In that experience I discovered that we are Light, Love, and Awareness having the experience of being human.. and yet simultaneously we are also nothing.. or No-Thing-Ness, or the Void. Yet even as I knew myself to be Nothing, I knew myself to be all thing simultaneously.
In the Light of Undifferentiated Consciousness, we experience ourselves as pure Light, and we are one with the All. In that state we have no body.. nor is there a sense of self present. There is only Light.. and we ARE that Light.
That was how my experience began while meditating one night in the back of a Jeep in the forest. Eventually I fell asleep in that state and when I awoke the next morning, I was in Oneness, or what Yeshua called The Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. During the experience a voice appeared from with and around me and It said “You are in the Body of God in Creation”.
I had no sense of self and knew nothing of my identity as John, I only knew there was no separation between my body and the earth or my surroundings.. there was only Oneness. I was One with ALL things.. One with the totality of Creation.
This is what is true: God is within each and every one of us, and we are within God. There is no ‘other’ and there is no separation..
There is only Oneness.
Our True Nature.. who and what we are.. is part of God. We are Divine Beings having a human experience. In the deepenst sense, we are as yet unrealized Christs or Buddhas.
Our lives are a continual process of becoming; which in it’s essence is a spiritual unfoldment of coming to know who and what we are. When we understand that this is the purpose of our being here and what it entails, we can assist in our own process of Awakening and more easily open to our True Beingness and live the life we were intended to live.
Most people who are on the spiritual path believe that they have to get to somewhere in order to become spiritually Consciousness, or Awakened. I did, but it’s not true.
There is actually nowhere to get TO. What we are seeking is already within us and all around us. All that is necessary is that we open ourselves to that which is already here. Spiritual attainment, a deeper realization of who and what we are comes about as we are Present in the moment and watch ourselves and the events and activities of oury lives as the Watcher. The mind/ego always wants to DO and to be in charge.. but when we simply drop down into our heart and be Present and be Aware, what is already here will reveal itself to us over time. We already are in the Body of God In Creation. We just don’t know it.
The Infinite WANTS us, as embodiments of Itself, to Awaken
Over a period of several years I experienced Oneness four times, and during the third, the Voice came to me for the second time and It said “It was never intended to be this way, is my Will that you know Who, and What you are, and create your lives in joy”.
Just a moment later I returned to my normal consciousness I realized that what God was saying was that we are here to become Living Conscious beings, and that eventually the entirety of humanity will be Awakened.
And, one of the many ways we can do that now is to become Present in the Now Moment, to live from our hearts and to watch the mind and what arises, whether it be stories, beliefs or suppressed emotions.
That was the case with me. Life may grace you with a spiritual awakening and an experience of the Truth but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will suddenly become firmly grounded in the experience, or that your stories and issues will miraculously disappear. In fact, that very rarely happens. What does happen far more often is that we experience Truth and then have to deal with the mind after the fact.
You don’t have to wait for a Spiritual Awakening to do that however. You can become aware of your stories and beliefs now just by paying attention to what you think and say on a continual basis.
By doing this type of Inner Work and bringing yourself Present and shifting your conscious awareness to your heart.. and with a sufficient desire.. you can experience your true Being-ness.
When and where are in the domain of Grace, but I know that if you want it enough and are willing to do the Work that God will meet you more than half way because that is what I did. I wanted it more than anything, and six years after a deeply heartfelt plea to God it happened.
In the process of Becoming as you see and resolve your beliefs you become more kind, peaceful and loving, and you will discover that you create a profoundly better life.
The truth is that anyone can become liberated when we began engaging in a fearless inquiry into the nature of our mind and beliefs, because in so doing, we come to discover that we are not our stories, beliefs or judgements. And we learn that our past conditioning does not define us.
You can know and experience that you are an
embodiment of God in creation.
As I said previously, we are actually Light beings who are having an experience of being human. And, the more Present we become in the Now Moment, and the more free of limiting beliefs we become, the more likely it is that we will have an experience of ourselves as the Divine Infinite Being that we are.
So I invite you right now to just stop.. right here and right now in this moment. Stop all seeking, and just Be Present. What you are is already here, inviting you home, and if you are diligent It will reveal Itself to you in time.
