APF-5: Relative Awakening

He then began to speak to the relative nature of awakening in a dualistic world, that although the initial ‘experience’ may last a day, a month, a year, or more, sooner or later we return to manifest reality. Unless we are one of the five or so masters that exist at any given time. I very much appreciate this non-absolute take on awakening. Adya then used the analogy of the honeymoon. Sooner or later, the couple returns to reality. And that’s when the fun begins. Exactly, I reflected. This was exactly what I had been dealing with the past year.

He then went on to say the adjustment to awakening may involve a depth of true understanding that ripens with time. He began to use percentages of 10 to 90, but then admitted using percentages was ridiculous. As to time it may take to adjust, he said it differs of course, but on average he estimated it could take 10-15 years. (I tapped Beverly and rolled my eyes in order to say that’s a long time to a 56-year old!)
