A person doesn’t wake up because something from the outside shakes them, it occurs because the jewel within is discovered; everyone has this jewel in their possession.
When a person has a shift from within, they wake up from a state of being a sleep and unaware of what truth is. When this occurs the implications of what has happened aren’t truly realized. In my own case I knew something happened because my view of life changed, but I didn’t know what it meant. I did know for the first time in my life that I was going to be okay. I likened this awakening as though I was broke (which I was spiritually) but I had a jewel in my pocket that I wasn’t aware of. I didn’t wake up because something from the outside shook me, I woke up because I discovered the jewel within that I already possessed. I didn’t know the value of this at first, as a matter of fact I didn’t even know I had this jewel in my possession. Even when some do become slightly aware of it, it very easily could be mistaken for an ordinary rock, and for me it was for many many years. As I look back throughout my life, I had an inkling this jewel existed, but it was dismissed as just being a rock, and because of this I kept looking for what I already possessed.
Nothing is given to us from the outside that the inside doesn’t already have in its possession, but because of the conditioning in place, there’s no awareness of this. Obviously we’re not talking material possessions, I’m strictly talking about the jewel of love that we all possess. This is worth more than anything in the world and it also is the thing that’s most readily available to everyone, it’s just that the conditioning in place keeps one looking for their jewel out there when all along one already has it in their possession.
