What's called "awakening" today is merely the man of sin coming into the temple of God, sitting down, and declaring HIMSELF to be God. And it's happening all around the world which tells us the nearness of the end of the age.

Ive always felt that it is impossible to be enlightened. The only thing that is enlightened is this guys bank account. I guess he has to make a living. Lol
Well, knowing the word awakening would obviously not be necessary given that it is just a word. Plus, it is one thing to grasp mentally the concepts of non-duality and no-seeking. It is quite another matter to actually realize non-duality and non-seeking. The ego is very wily - it creates all this seeming duality (separation) and then is always seeking to escape its inherent suffering (created by this gesture of separation) via union with endless objects, others, etc.!

Do you believe that 'awakening' can happen without even knowing the word 'awakening' or 'enlightenment'? (That it can happen and not even know what had happened?)
In other words without seeking it.
