Of all the different kinds of awakening discussed here the most important of them all is the awakening of the consciousness.
" Seek ye first the Kingdom of heaven then all these things shall be added unto ye."
And also " Be ye wise as serpents and innocent as doves" .
I have noticed in the process of my searching that there was a time when having found what I considered to be the highest truth I focussed on it so intently that I was unaware of what was going on in the world around me on a larger scale.
Many years went by and then I began to look around at the world and got quite a shock or a number of shocks.
In the intervening years many strange illusions had become firmly established in the psyche of many people to such an extent that if one attempted to begin to question these established (truths) one was just (asking for it).
While we have been contemplating our navels the (totalitarian tiptoe) has covered a lot of ground and many of the liberties we take for granted have been eroded. Some have been obliterated.
"The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." Benjamin Disraeli.
"The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them."
"how fortunate for leaders, that the masses do not think."
Who also said in his Mein Kampf.
In this they [the Jews] proceeded on the sound principle that the magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds, they more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads, and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others. (p. 231 of the Manheim translation)
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
-Henry Louis Mencken
"One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors."
"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."
"Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote."
-George Jean Nathan
"Members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population."
"There is no other definition of socialism valid for us than that of the abolition of the exploitation of man by man."
-Ernesto "Che" Guevara
There can be said to be a different kind of awakening for each centre or brain of an individual.
If so there could be an instinctive awakening which besides being an awakening of the senses also means becoming more aware of how the food we eat affects us and our psychology and being more selective about what we eat. But saying that each of our different centres has a different kind of food. But lets start with the physical centre or to use some of its other names the body, the instinctive centre, the limbic centre, or the reptilian brain.

One might not be against meat for moral reasons but if one was aware of how the meat was processed it might put one of eating it.

Some of our perceptions come about as a result of the balanced functioning of a number of different parts of the brain or centres working together.
We might be said to have a political awakening based on the awakening of compassion in us and the feeling of empathy for the circumstances of others. One could also say that the different forms of politics correspond to the different kinds of brains. The Instinctive part of the brain or as it is referred to by current science "
(Limbic or reptile brain), is selfish by nature and wants to control others, we can tell what kind of politics that would give rise to cant we?
This movie is an example of how the media is able to "demonize" a people, any people to such an extent that the average person ends up with fully formed "opinions" about them.
