Spiritual Awakening

The term “spiritual awakening” has a somewhat disputed meaning: some say it means having an experience of the oneness of all things, while others believe it means encountering the Divine, and still others equate it to the first experiences of getting in touch with our own sense of divine spirit or energy, often in the midst of loss or difficulty. Whatever the definition, there is a common theme of redefining a person’s identity in relation to the world around them, with a definite transcendent quality to the experience. You can have multiple experiences of spiritual awakening, each sparking further movement along the path toward enlightenment.
