Today is the anniversary of the JFK assassination. An event that woke a lot of people up. And is still waking people up.

It's also the "safe conspiracy". It seems like the one you can fairly readily talk about without being labelled a nutcase.

So one could use today to begin sharing your "awakeness" with a friend or family member. By discussing the JFK assassination. Give it a shot.

Share your results.

Your OP made me thoughtful for a couple of days.

There was a time when I felt I was experiencing an "awakening". Mid-twenties, I guess it was.
Huge changes happened in my life, I had a few years of being isolated from the world and took up meditation and hiking alone. I had a spiritual transformation of sorts.

Then as I got into contact with others again, found others who identified as "awakened", and we had this more or less subtle perception of ourselves as "special" or at least different from others.

It makes me chuckle now, as one does when they listen to a three year old chatting away- how cute!

Looking back now, in my memory, there is a big distinction between before that "awakening" and after- it seems I was not fully conscious before. Like a machine, or an animal.
After... perception (and as a result, my memories since) took on new dimensions, more depth, more meaning, a firmer sense of self and my place in the world.

But now....I kind of wonder if that isn't just growing up??

I don't feel any sort of "specialness" in relation to others now. At least not to others of the same age. I find everyone has their depth and spirituality, but they don't share it with everyone they come across.
The difference that happened to me made me aware that even if I only see the superficial parts of who they are, there is MORE that I do not know about them. I guess that is where the depth perception came in. The whole world gained that deeper potential to it.
The more you know, the more you are aware of how much you don't know.

Well put. That seems like a very healthy way of looking at it.

But I think some people feel that their awakening creates more separation from others. Your words will likely help them see it another way.
