You see them all the time.

They are "normal" people. These are the unattentive people who go on throughout their life wondering why their life is as bad as it is.

They complain about life, and, they never know "how" things are and why they are the way they are.

They are disillusioned with myspace and facebook. They think that reality is just for fun and games.

When will these people wake up?

It is a process; some are awakening now while some will awaken later. Some, however, may not awaken at all. Complacency is a poison that people confuse with happiness and thus willingly submit themselves to what little unhappiness they know for the greater benefit of not knowing how bad things can be. One must choose to awaken.

You have to wake them up yourself.

I do it a lot and people react different, but more people can handle the truth than I imagined.

The process is just beginning and people are getting to the point they want to know the truth.

90/10 rule applies here.
90% of people will always remain 'normal', and if you ask me in this case it should be 99.99%. Not that anything is wrong in that, nature works in her own ways. These people form an important part of spiritual 'ecosystem'.

Its not that they will remain as it is, however slow the evolution is, its compulsory. My (free) advice is not to worry about or pity on the ones not so awake, see yourself. Compared to what is possible, even the most awake in our terms is unconscious actually.

Best policy is not to confront, they may feel hurt or get angry and hurt you, just drop hints, the one who is 'ready' will pick up those hints and start waking up.

Sorry.....most of what you've said is plop imo.

Define "normal" and from who's point of view.

Your passive approach to the ignorance and fears of others is fed by your own personal desire to be "normal" perhaps?

Thanks for the "free" advice you offered.

Do you only charge for the good advice?


My advice .... never let anyone stop you from revealing truth. (unless they are armed!)

I find personal joy in letting me people know whats going on. I am open to debate with an honest ear to both sides.

The truth is, as we were born into this crazyness without choice of participating, The real answer is to just deny taking part in our democracy.. or lack there of.

If you can give some insight to even a few people ... some of them will do thier own investigating .. and then tell some people and so on.

Eventually an idea or general mood will form and a movement will begin.

The truth is out there.. soon enough the government will realize they are in over thier head.

So, what exactly have you woken up to?

The way I define waking up to put it simple: realizing that what you're being told is not really what is going on.

I want to know when these people will start to see the light themselves.

I know the world isn't always as it seems. Yet, a lot of other people just seem to take it as it comes to them, and, not really complaining about how much their life sucks.

Some never will.
Their fragile little psyche can't handle the thought that what they are told is not true.
They will defend those lies to their own death.

If bush told them the moon was made of cheese they would believe it, thinking that believing whatever their government tells them makes them patriotic, when it is in fact the exact opposite.

These sheep assist the lies, it is us dissenters who are the patriots.

What do you think could get these people who aren't awoken up yet to at least that their life isn't as it seems? That their life could be a lot better than it really is?

For some of them, nothing.
They are in a state of ignorant bliss...
Dancing with the stars, survivor, and/or the latest baseball/football/basketball game is all they care about.
I'm not generalizing ALL people who are not awake, but SOME of them would still be defending this country years after the rest of us revolted and fixed it.
They would be the ones crying for "the old days"

There are SOME people who can not, and will not, ever see the truth, their fragile little psyche couldn't handle it.
Sad, I know... but unfortunately true.

For the rest of them, all you can do is try to open their eyes one little piece at a time...
Show them proof that their world is an illusion, give them time to digest it, then show them more.
It's a slow, frustrating process.
It's taken me over 5 years to get one person in my life to see that 9-11 is not as they were told.
They still can't accept the truth yet, but they are slowly coming out of their mainstream media induced coma...

That's true. Some will also see the truth but don't want to accept it. It's because of that the same people are still in power and many people remain sheeple.

What folks like us need to do it pick one topic and then talk, talk, talk, and talk about it. That's my way of dealing with things.

My only real weapon is my brain. So I'll use it to fight the one and only issue I think is of any importance. Which is, of course, to get rid of the Federal Reserve Bank.

So I try to preach the Constitution whenever I get an ear that will listen. The Constitution is a stepping stone to talking about the Fed. The Constitution is a simple subject really, the Fed on the other hand is a difficult topic to get across.

It is an uphill battle, I know. But it's all I can do. To be more effective, you need to choose your target audience. You simply will not always get across to the people you want to.

I see this question posed all the time by people who have different ideas of what "wake up" means and what people should "wake up" about. A lot of them disagree, too.

So I would ask -- how do you know that you are awakened and not among those who need to be awakened? The answer of "well, I know the truth" isn't one that will help here.

Referring to "ascended masters" and the like isn't helpful, because I see contradictory claims from them. When we're physically awake, we agree completely on a reality -- I could get any person from anywhere in the world here in my house and everyone (except the deaf) would say "yes, the neighbor's dogs are barking and occasionally fighting." So we can test and confirm and if someone didn't hear the dogs but can talk to us, we know that either they are deaf or have hearing problems or fell asleep while the dogs were barking (weren't awake.)

How do you know if you're "really awake" and not simply being misled by a worldview that you found was comfortable but wasn't true?

That is true. One can think they know the truth about something, but, an answer like "I know the truth" isn't a real answer because it doesn't show that you know anything really.

Yeah, although I don't think you should refer to ascended masters, there are quite a few people out there who have credible views about the world about what being awake means, like with about David Icke, although some might say he was mislead with the reptillian conspiracy, I believe David Icke, is like a modern day George Orwell or Aldeous Huxley. People like David Icke have a lot of views which I agree with. It's like with what David Icke said about playing sports and like how it's not okay to only be focused on sports and how on exams people are only being tested on what they know about the system-- it's things like that which make sense, things like that which people haven't really woken up to yet. The idea is that some people aren't aware about how fragile reality is and how some things are taken too seriously, and, like, people haven't woken up from that yet.



How do you know if you're "really awake" and not simply being misled by a worldview that you found was comfortable but wasn't true?

What happened with me was that I already woke up from my previous world view. I think waking up is just a matter of realizing that certain views are incorrect and when you wake up from erroneous beliefs than you should be able to see the world in a more accurate way and be more perceptive of things. I used to believe in all things solid, I loved material things, I remember wishing I had more material things and envying other people who had more material things. I woke up from that erroneous world view and now I see things more accurately.

None of our business,

Depends on what dream a person is having.


A truly awakened being does not complain about another's state of being, but lovingly accepts that, this is where this soul is on his journey.

I believe either at some point in time in the future, or, when the aware go back to sleep. Then when they unaware are awake, the aware will readily wake up as if they were lightly napping, waiting for their friends to wake up.

Previous posters have much-covered it, but I just wanted to point out that the Biblical book of Canticles, when read in the light of your questions, is quite inspiring and full of solace:

eg:


5: I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

The 'sleep' you mention is not the sleep of the body, but of the soul. Seen in this light, 'awakening' is a precious moment, and eternal.

Thought you might appreciate that, metaphorically and aesthetically.

Thanks for the quote from the bible. I doubt people when they say that the bible heals them but I think that reading that quote made me feel a little better, like, other people think the same way I do.

I think that people should be more aware of what's really going on. I'm not complaining about other people's states of awareness, really, I just think they should be less clueless about the world. That's why I've stopped listening to AM radio and that's why I've stopped watching the news on TV. There's too much commotion in the world. I wish the world was a much happier place and I think if more people were more aware of what's going on they would feel more happy.

Uhm, OP, what you describe actually describes even a lot of ppl on here. Who is to say WHAT it is we are supposed to be awake to? Do you HONESTLY know yourself?

Life is experiences and so long as someone is alive and having experiences, whether you DEEM them suitable or not, who is to say they are not awake to THEIR life and what it means to them?

Don't worry so much about other ppl being asleep to the experiences that YOU are learning from and just keep trekking on the path you are on and trust that they will take from their personal experiences what it is they are supposed to take regardless of if you see it as negative.
Best thing to do is to not judge the state of those around you. Converse, but don't judge whether where they are at is right or wrong based on your objective observations.
