Hi all. I have been hearing the phrase "people waking up" over and over lately, and it is starting to piss me off. All sorts of radio programs and documentaries talk about this, but never, not even once, explain exactly what that phrase means. I would say they mean people becoming more empathetic and aware of how they are effecting themselves and each other, however people use this phrase to mean so much more, apparently. People usually use this phrase while talking about the economy, the government, military, etc... seems like a very powerful phrase to use, but also seems as meaningless as "change we can believe in"

Two types of people are waking up. Those who embrace the Spirit of God and those who are raging against it. Each will see the truth and every knee will bow in the end. Water puts out Fire. Those who killed Kennedy will reap what they sow (FIRE). The same weapon is what is used against those who hate. It's a mirror. Love covers a multitude of sin. Water is Christ and Christ is love. Taking the name requires the character.

"Waking up" is a simple term, with a simple definition.
It simply means to question everything, and to think for yourself.
It means to put your analytical mind to work, and utilize critical thinking skills. It takes time and practice to think critically of everything you see and hear. Including your own beliefs and convictions. "Why do I believe what I believe?"
