Activation can be temporary or permanent, in which case, awakening and activation could be synonyms. True awakening is when one’s consciousness turns within and the entire body is able to reconnect with the root – the Ultimate Being. This reconnection brings instant Yoga, the experience of samadhi, enlightens the subtle body, and through the gradual refinement through this connection, one is able to enlighten the physical too, realise the essence of existence, free self from emotional and other karmic baggage and continue one’s evolution further in a subtler form. One is able to realise what the true exit from this illusion is and thus is able to culminate the unconscious existence in the body. The path is individual and always within.
Awakening happens when one is able to turn the conscious power within and realise the way one creates everything from within the self and also the connection to the space of existence.
Rather than being an end in of itself, awakening is actually the beginning of the real spiritual journey. Awakening is not an achievement but rather an opportunity to begin the process of deepening one’s perception of reality and refining oneself further on a multidimensional level.
When one awakens, one finds the door to spiritual evolution and bio-spiritual transformation. But after awakening, one is to learn how to use the awakened state to uncover and refine the subtle impressions within one’s individual consciousness. The work of refinement is not experienced as a big bang or an instant realisation, but rather as a slow and tedious process of coming in and out of the awakened state to discover and refine the subtle impressions and then dissolve them in the space of one’s unconditional being.
Awakening does not guarantee enlightenment. In order to further progress and expand after awakening one is not to see awakening as an achievement or a final state, but only as tool to begin the work of enlightening the multidimensional self. This means that one begins to contemplate the manifested gross/ emotional/ mental reality deeper from the awakened state in order to see the subtle karmic distortions which have given rise to the manifestation.
One must go from the state of living in an ordinary individual emotional consciousness which occasionally glimpses the awakened aware state, to being that very awakened aware state which refines the individual emotional consciousness that arises inside of it. This is the point at which the refinement process really starts and this is the true purpose of awakening in Siddha Kundalini Yoga.
