How Do You Know if You are Spirituality Awakened?

If you ask, How do I know if I am spiritually awakened?” you can be sure you have not had a glimpse of that spiritually awakened state.
Within the grace experience of spiritual awakening you know who you are, not who you think you are. You know that you are a unique, time-bound expression of that which is beyond time.
This is no longer a belief that you hold if ever you held such a belief. In the grace moment of awakening, you become a knower. You know what it is to be in At-One-Ment.
This is not an intellectual understanding. It is not theology. The knower and the known are not experienced as being separate. I refer to this as being known through. You know that you are of two worlds, but these two worlds are not separate.
Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul,
And ancient Ireland knew it all.
W. B. Yeats
These are the world’s of time and the timeless, the world of form and the world beyond form.
Before the grace experience of awakening, what you know is the separate sense of the personal self. This is the personal self born in a particular time and space with the hope, at least for some, that they may be granted eternal life provided they belong to the right group and believe the right script.
This is where many fall into a slumber and their spiritual awakening goes into a limbo-like state.
