Dialogue on Awakening
"Do you want a definition of being Awake versus being asleep? You've just got it. It is only that; it is your acceptance of the recognition of who you are. And there is obviously nothing to do to attain that except believe it. So whatever process you may ask for or concoct for yourself, it is a process with but this one goal; making you believe what you know to be true." [Dialogue on Awakening page 24]
"The earth recognizes people in whom Source flowers. There is a sensuousness, a centerness, a grace to their movement. There is a relaxed gentility of power flowing quietly within and beneath their action. There is a humble assurdness about them, a reverence, a sense of humor and a sense of the sacred entwined. They are the magical people, for whom the earth has longed." [Ken Carey]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
In the LIGHT OF CHRIST's SPIRITUAL TRUTH, doctrines become meaningless & are swiftly jettisoned from the illuminated mind. [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 3, page 64-65]
"Until people truly wake up and open their eyes to the full realisation that they are the individualisation of the SOURCE of their BEING which is a combination of PERFECT IMPULSES of Creativity & Love, they will remain attracted to the enticements of materialism, satisfactions of body lusts, and the desire for self-promotion above all others - which ranges from take-overs and strikes in business and industries, and gross disharmonies in relationships to murder, rape and war. Wherever a person exerts his ego over another, angry discords abound.
This is the very first Law of Existence which must be publicised throughout the world." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 9, page 11]
"There are persons who never think with the higher faculties of their minds at all; those who do so are the minority and are thus, in a way, beyond, if not above, the average of human kind. These will think even upon ordinary matters on that higher plane. The idiosyncrasy of the person determines in which "principle" of the mind the thinking is done, as also the faculties of a preceding life, and sometimes the heredity of the physical. This is why it is so very difficult for a materialist - the metaphysical portion of whose brain is almost atrophied - to raise himself, or for one who is naturally spiritually-minded to descend to the level of the matter-of-fact vulgar thought." [H.P. Blavatsky]
"We can only escape from the world by outgrowing the world. Death may take man out of the world but only wisdom can take the world out of the man. As long as the human being is obsessed by worldliness, he will suffer from the Karmic consequences of false allegiances. When however, worldliness is transmuted into Spiritual Integrity he is free, even though he still dwells physically among worldly things.
Ignorance fears all things, falling, terror-stricken before the passing wind. Superstition stands as the monument to ignorance, and before it kneel all who realize their own weakness who see in all things the strength they do not possess.
Wisdom fears no thing, but still bows humbly to its own source, with its deeper understanding, loves all things, for it has seen the beauty, the tenderness, and the sweetness which underlie Life's mystery.
The true student is cutting out a finer character from the rough ashlar that has been given him. He is struggling to improve each day just a little, asking not for power or light but for strength to shape his destiny more truly to the standards of Wisdom.
These are the labors of the student. His worthiness to receive greater knowledge is tested by long years of ignorance, often by much suffering. Through all he must be patient, and true, realizing that each sorrow is an opportunity, each misfortune a lesson in disguise. These lessons he must learn; when this task has been done, they vanish to return no more." [(Manly P. Hall))]
Awakened Man - Osho
"People are afraid, very much afraid of those who know themselves. They have a certain power, a certain aura and a certain magnetism, a charisma that can take out alive, young people from the traditional imprisonment. The awakened man cannot be enslaved - that is the difficulty - and he cannot be imprisoned. Every genius who has known something of the inner is bound to be a little difficult to be absorbed; he is going to be an upsetting force. The masses don't want to be disturbed, even though they may be in misery, but they are accustomed to the misery. And anybody who is not miserable looks like a stranger. The awakened man is the greater stranger in the world; he does not seem to belong to anybody. No organization confines him, no community, no society, no nation." [Osho]
Partial List of Awakened Individuals
I think there are degrees to the Awakened state of Mind. If we examine the works of those considered awakened we see variations in their abilities and work. They are here to do different things or missions so their awareness, skills and talents are tailored for such. Here is an additional list of awakened individuals. There are more of course.
