What does it mean to be spiritually awake?  First of all, it is a choice; I would say it is an equal choice of both your soul and your conscious decision making.  Red pill or Blue pill?  To wake up is a double-edged sword.  Would you choose to wake up, to see reality as it is, even if it meant seeing the stark truth of life, a possible inconvenient and wholly unsettling truth, or even subject yourself to great suffering?  When you wake up you let go.  You let go of everything you think you were, for it is just a story, not your real identity.  Dark night of the soul perhaps.  You start looking at the world through spiritual eyes; you begin to feel things more deeply;
