Other noticeable signs of awakening are one worries less. For one knows and understands the truth of life, which has set you free from the need to control. Surrendering to the moment, one suffers their thoughts no longer. One understands the present moment and the act of thinking and impossible to reconcile. Thinking must become being if we are to ever truly be present NOW.
One understands that as mind, one is not the creator of life but the revealer. One understands that in order to reveal the light within, one's conscious and subconscious minds must be united in a meditative harmony, acting as a channel to receive tuition from within. The light that guides our ways. One no longer has to suffer the slings and arrows of cause and effect now that one is One in Love that is Soul being Spirit. Rather than blindly working against the law of cause and effect, we work in accordance with and as it.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. - Matthew 6:22
One understands that one sees and is informed by the Inner I (meditative mind) looking within rather than with the outer eyes of flesh.
One understands the more one surrenders their personal thoughts, the more an impersonal light shine within them. A light that will guide and instruct every thought, every emotion, every act. One knows now that one can simply let go and let be knowing all the added things will come to you to support you in your life's purpose which is clear to you now.
One knows this guiding light can only be experienced, when the mind is kept single and present in the now; fully aware - fully present - fully conscious of all dimensions of being and nonbeing. One knows the quieter the mind becomes the more guidance will come, intuitively, instinctively and serendipitously. One now understands the words:
Don’t you believe that I am (mind) in the Father, (true Self) and that the Father (true Self) is in me (mind)? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority (Mind). Rather, it is the Father, (True Self) living in me, who is doing his work. - John 14:10
One understands the vital importance of the present moment. Thinking ahead gets less and less, going from a year to a month, to a day until you are only concerned with the present moment. A moment that radiates joy, like it did in childhood, bringing a vibrancy and trust back into life. One understands that understanding is another word for love.
"One thing I do know: I was blind, and now I can see!” - John 9:25
