One’s life does change after a spiritual awakening. Each time one has a spiritual awakening their life changes. The perceptions we once had of reality no longer fit. All levels of awakening are different, so all levels of perceptions of reality will be different. But what ultimately happens is the dream which makes this third-dimensional existence seem real falls away. One sees the dream and knows it is only temporary and not reality. One understands the Oneness of the essence. One’s desires and attachments become diminished bringing peace and tranquility to our being. One looks away from finding any real security from the third dimension, but rather looks to their soul and higher self for their security.
The Hindu tradition has described the spiritual path of learning to become like the lotus flower which rises above the murky waters instead of living in the murky water. After awakenings take place, our being begins to live above the murky water of life. We become elevated from the mundane concerns of existence. We still have the mundane in our life but we are not as focused on it as we once were. We have gained broader perceptions of the whole of life. With this new knowledge comes new responsibilities to the knowledge. We are required to be of service to others in different ways.
There will be many changes to our being the deeper we go into awakening. Much of our strong personality will fall away. Many people will shun us as their being feels threatened by the level of our light. They may attack us in subtle and not so subtle ways. Many of us, on the awakening path, have gone or will go through the stripping–away process. which diminishes the ego. We might find ourselves without others around us who understand what is going on for us. The process of awakening for us can be challenging for the other beings around us.
There is a level of spiritual understanding which believes, we as human beings, manifest what is around us, rather than life being a very complicated, intricate system designed for us to awaken from the dream. Because of their ideas around manifestation, these souls, often judge the more advanced souls, whose life is being stripped away, as “less-than” for not being able to control their destiny and make things happen for themselves. When souls awaken beyond the stage of life being about manifestation, they begin to see life is not about controlling and fulfilling our desires, but rather about waking up from the long dark sleep we as humans find ourselves in.
