You are like an actor wearing a costume on a stage. The idea of waking up has to do with remembering you are on the stage in a costume playing a role. Don’t forget this truth and begin to think that you are the character of Hamlet. Waking up is remembering that you are not Hamlet. It’s much more than a mental process. It’s a visceral awakening that happens when you are ready.
The awakening process continues further when you step off the stage. You are still aware of yourself in a person-suit, but you clearly see that the drama is up there on the stage. You begin to detach from it. You become more of an observer of the drama rather than the one perpetuating it. You are no longer the performer.
Awakening then continues when you leave the theatre all together and have very little interest in the drama on the stage. These are the successive stages of awakening.
A distraught student once asked a question. She mentioned her disgust at all the people around her that she sees who are invested in conspiracy theories. There are many who believe that awakening means understanding who “runs the show” on Earth.
This is very far from the truth! That’s not what awakening means.
Seeing the control dramas on Earth as being layers of “truth” just means that you are still on the stage confusing your character with the true reality. You cannot see anything clearly until you step off the stage. Once you truly step off the stage, the view of reality is very different and does not contain the experience of polarization. Only the characters on the stage experience that intensity.
As you step farther and farther away from the stage, the sun (the light of your consciousness) ignites and gets brighter—illuminating the characters on the stage for what they truly are.
There’s also a temptation to cling to the so-called heroes in the stage play. In your time, there are many who claim to have “inside knowledge” of the stage play, and they attempt to weave an airtight view of reality that keeps the followers trapped and hooked on the daily drama—all the while thinking they are the only ones who know the truth and are free.
There are no heroes in that way. Heroes don’t create a narrative and feed it to you bit by bit in the insidious disguise of truth. These “heroes” are the ones who wish to control the stage play and keep you from exiting the cage.
True heroes show you how to exit the stage itself rather than empower the drama. But when consciousness is polarized, it’s very difficult to see those who are trying to control the narrative.
Often, that which the “heroes” rail against is actually the path to freedom. It is a paradox indeed. Each side believes only they can see clearly, but each side is deluded as long as it is polarized. This is what happens in the mirror house called Earth. Every reflection you see outside of you is distorted.
Therefore, you can only look within if you have done the inner work needed to see clearly. If you haven’t, then even the inner world is distorted.
One would mistakenly assume that exiting the stage means you should have no use for the world, and you should become a hermit in a cave. That is not so. The paradox is that as you recognize all of this, you become more fully human.
This is one of the paths of awakening that your ancient extraterrestrial family took. They finally embraced their bodies and the experience of being physical with no story. They finally felt their emotions without pushing them away. They could watch dramas unfold on the stage and not get sucked into them, because they were no longer afraid of their shadows. They could be fully present.
This is what is meant by the phrase, “Be in the world but not of it.” This is not a dissociated state. It’s actually a state of intense presence.
