It is said that there are many awakenings, glimpses or free samples...
From all of the awakenings or glimpses only one is of significance. That is the one where it is irrevocably clear that Consciousness is all there is and that there is no such thing as “I” separate from Consciousness. That is the only awakening that deserves the name of awakening.
That is a revelation of Truth and Truth will allow the eradication of the lie of separation arising in the ego and the unnecessary suffering that that lie produces. That is what is meant by the saying “The Truth shall set you free.”
For a blessed few people, there is evidence, that that awakening is simultaneous with the death of the sense of separation in the ego. For the rest of us mortals, they are two different events. One opens a door the other burns the door down.
The Truth, revealed in awakening, becomes the point of reference for future psychological development in terms of release of suffering.
As that reference point from awakening becomes more and more present in our daily lives, and more and more nonsense is eliminated from our intellect and emotions, the more that Truth imbues peace into our lives.
