People “wake up” when their soul is ready and not a second sooner. To awaken is to have the sudden realization that much of what has been believed is untrue, that life doesn’t work the way you thought it did, that there is a deeper more profound truth under all the distortion and illusion.
Awakening is part of the soul’s journey. It is definitely a personal thing and happens … in it’s own Divine right timing.
Until a person has had an awakening, which can take many forms, they literally do not have the eyes to see nor the ears to hear what is so obvious to those who have awakened.
