10 Signs You Are Fully Awake

Article from The Idealist
Facebook Page:

"Isn't it obvious that there is a significant global awakening happening? Just as the Mayans predicted so many years ago, the apocalypse would become apparent in 2012. But many misinterpret the apocalypse to be the end of the world, when in fact it actually means an “un-covering, a revelation of something hidden.”

As many continue to argue the accuracy of the Mayan calendar, it can no longer be argued that a great many people are finally becoming aware of what has been hidden from them for so long. Of course this awakening is not an overnight process. It takes time to peel away the many layers of lies to get to the core of the ultimate truths. It would be beyond pretentious for us to claim to know all of the secrets of the universe. We don't.

Everyday we are humbled by what we don’t yet know. However, it is becoming clearer by the day what isn't true. And by that measure alone, it is possible to determine if you’re one of the people beginning to wake up.

Here are 10 Signs You Are Fully Awake:

1. You know there’s no meaningful difference between major political parties (Democrats and Republicans): It’s so easy to get caught up in the left-right debate and believe there’s a difference between the two major political parties. However, debate is one thing, while actions are another. By their deeds you shall know them, and it is indisputable that there is no significant difference between political parties when it comes to action on the most important issues. Even hardened ideologues like John Cusack are beginning to wake up.

2. You understand that the Federal Reserve, or international central banking more broadly, is the engine of our economic problems: Debt slavery is the totalitarian force that threatens all of humanity, not some temporary political puppet or some greedy Wall Street trader. When a small group of people have the ability to create wealth out of nothing and charge interest on it, they have the ability to enslave the planet to their ownership despite what type of government a country claims to have.

3. You know that preemptive war is never necessary: When we realize that self-defense is the only acceptable form of violence, then we become awakened human beings. To suggest war because someone is different from you, or they may pose a threat in the future is simply ludicrous. And when did the idea of bombing civilians become humanitarian? No one wants war except for the immoral creeps that benefit from it.

4. You know that you’re being systematically poisoned, how, by whom, and why: Admittedly, there’s a lot to learn in terms of how we are secretly being poisoned. But the fact remains that we are being systematically poisoned, and it is likely for the deliberate purpose of dumbing us down and, ultimately, culling the population. Who could believe anyone is so evil to do that to innocent people, you may ask. Well, once you begin to seek the answer to that question, you’re one step closer to enlightenment.

5. You understand that government can never legislate morality, nor should they: When you realize the role of government is only to protect your liberty and work for the well being of the citizens, you’re awakened. There should be one simple law regulating morality: Do no harm. Thus, it’s impossible for the government to enforce morality with guns, cages, and taxes because those clearly cause severe harm to your liberty and our well-being.

6. You know that the mainstream media is wholly owned and manipulated by the ruling elite: A dwindling number of people still actually believe what they hear coming from the establishment media as if it’s gospel, even when they already accept that they are bought and paid for by the elite controllers. Yet, recognizing that they are nothing more than a propaganda machine and a form of mind control are the first steps in being able to critically think beyond the scientific messaging they broadcast.

7. You know that your neighbors are not your enemy even if you have fierce ideological disagreements: This is perhaps the most difficult thing to overcome in the awakening process. But it’s vital to understand that your neighbors have been indoctrinated and hypnotized like the rest of the us, until someone helps shine a light on inconsistencies in our thoughts and beliefs. Most of their ideas are not their own. They are suffering just like the rest of us. It’s okay to condemn their actions if they’re harmful, but those who are awake will not give up on spreading information that can enlighten those who might still be in the dark. None of us were born “awake” and all of us can learn even more.

8. You know that the endgame is one-world control of planet Earth: Once you understand that the endgame for the ruling elite is to have complete control of all vital facets of society through a global government, one-world currency, international armed forces, and so on, it is simple to see through the lies and propaganda surrounding even the most confusing world events. You will never go back to sleep when you fully accept this reality.

9. You recognize that there are esoteric powers manipulating our physical world: Whether you’re a religious or spiritual person, scientific or just plain curious, there are many theories about an invisible force at play in all of this. Obviously it’s impossible to prove exactly what it is. You may not want to believe it, but the ruling elite takes their occult rituals deadly serious. And they likely know something we don’t. Just by keeping an open mind about this possibility, you’ll forever keep an open mind about the things we can actually see, hear, taste and touch. Current science has shown that we can only “see” what the visible light spectrum reveals, which amounts to the tiniest fraction of all that can theoretically be seen within the full spectrum of energy. Part of any awakening is realizing that there is much more that is possible than impossible.

10. The power to change the world rests with you and you alone: For too long people have believed themselves to be weak, or relied on others to change the world for them. You’ll know that you’re fully awake when you realize that you have infinite power to change the world by simply living the change you want to see. First, you have to identify the principles that you believe in and then go out and live by them. If just a small minority took steps to do this, it would shake the establishment to its core."


Copied comment from below:

I know that there are many here that resonate with these 10 points on some level. The one FREE tool that helped all of this "sink in" smoothly and comfortably was the practice of meditation. There are so many different forms of meditation out there that everyone could find one or many different forms that suits them. I encourage those having a difficult time facing these revelations to seek out a method of meditation that works for them.

The main purpose of meditation is to eliminate or diminish the negative energies that this Elite controlled society has built up a momentum of and the BEST PART is that this doesn't require doing something new, rather it simply requires you stop YOUR OWN perpetuation of this energetic/emotional momentum. You will be less stressed, think with greater clarity and creativity, and the NATURAL (eternal) momentum of positivity or LOVE will grow on it's own just because you are stopping the negative influence.

It is not something that many will FEEL happen immediately, but from my own experience and that of many other people, within 30 days or so, you WILL FEEL the changes in momentum and people around you will notice too. As Ron Paul has said himself, it is our duty to lead by example not force and I sincerely hope this post is a small step towards that for ALL OF YOU and something that will be a part of your AWAKENED GROWTH as a fellow HUMAN BEING.

Number 7 is wrong. If

Number 7 is wrong. If someone is not awake, then they are your enemy for their entire existence is to work in opposition to the awoken persons ends.

It must be tiring

to hate everyone who disagrees with you, but at least you have enough energy to spare to be egocentric about it! The "you're with us or you're against us" mindset is one of the biggest reasons why the world is in the state it is in, and perpetuating it, no matter the justification, will result in continuous failure.

A signature used to be here!

Who said anything about

Who said anything about hate?

There are primarily two groups of people: those who want to be free from government interference and those who want to use government to steal and otherwise interfere in people's lives. Please explain to me how, the people who are invoking government to steal from you and limit your freedom, are your friends. Until they are awake, they are not your friends because they are working against your liberty; if you believe these people are friends, do you believe you have any enemies?

Those who support government

Those who support government are not your friends; whether you like it or not. Their support for government is directly stealing money out of your pockets; do friends do that to each other? Also, their support of government also means that they will -as they currently do- support the violence of the state over the lack of the state. Does that sound like friends to you?

Just think if so many people didn't willingly work for the Government then the amount of money taken out of your paycheck would be less and the government would be less violent and less intrusive. So is it the government which is bad, or the support which the government receives by your 'friends' which makes the government as violent as it is?

Government by itself with no support isn't a government, and therefore, it is the support -for government- by your 'friends' which is more detrimental to the current situation we find ourselves in, then it is for a group of people which call themselves government.

I do not subscribe to number 10.

Even if I were to do nothing I know that the world will change. This does not mean that I will do nothing but that I will act according to the best knowledge I have while being fully aware that I am not alone in doing so.

Indeed the very fact that I do act, according to the light I have received, is founded upon my firm conviction that there is One who is greater than I who is really in control of all events and with whose will I seek always to align my own will. If this were not so then I would have no hope for mankind since human nature is self evidently far too corrupt to deliver the human race from our bondage to corruption.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

If there is someone in

If there is someone in control of all events then the idea of humans having 'Free Will' is false. If this idea is false, then there really was no purpose for a war in heaven since God would have just created two classes of servants, Angels and Humans, and therefore there would be no difference between the two.

If there is no 'Free Will,' because there is someone in control of all events, then you don't really have a choice as to whether you 'do' anything or not. All life becomes meaningless. Also, it makes it impossible for God to test people if God is in control of all events. Therefore Eve didn't do anything which God didn't make her do, the same goes for Adam, and also for Lucifer.

So then, what would be the meaning of life?

There is no such thing as free will, just the illusion of it.

I believe we are condemned to make choices but at the same time our choices are conditioned by powers beyond our control and will never accomplish the ends we desire. What we wish for may be good but what we do, how we act. would always ultimately end badly were it not for the grace of God, who makes the wrath of men to praise Him.

This state of affairs is entirely a function of our being mortal, subject to Death and Corruption in every part of our being, body, mind, emotions and spirit. Only in our spirits do we have the potential to be free but our spirits are disconnected from the source of Life that alone can make us free and so we are powerless to carry out what we wish to do and remain captive to the lower realms of body and soul (i.e. mind, will and emotions), that are enslaved to our lower passions that are in turn subject to the prince of the power of the air. We may imagine that we are acting of our own free will but that is merely an accommodation that our minds invent to serve our self image that is anchored in that ideology.

In other words we are in bondage to our lower bestial nature. We may give a shiny gloss to what we do so that we deceive ourselves into believing that we are doing good but we are lying to ourselves and others. This deception may be widespread and encompass entire communities and nations who may adhere to some belief about themselves that justifies their actions, however bizarre and wicked they may appear to anyone outside that community or nation.

In short we are, as human beings, living entirely within a web of deception that traps us inextricably and blinds us to our true nature. This is a very complex and tightly woven tapestry of delusion and within it there will always be opposites that appear to us as good and evil, ugly and beautiful, true and false. We create the tapestry with our own hands using our ideologies, our philosophies, our religions, our natural inventive genius and astounding energies. These creations of mankind are all mere wind and have no permanent meaning whatsoever. As the prophet says:

For all of us have become like one who is unclean, And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment; And all of us wither like a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. (Isaiah 64~:6)

And, as the apostle says:

"All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever. (1 Peter 1:24-25)

The Christian religion supports the notion of free will and it is likely that our modern Western society owes its conviction in this regard to the Christian theologians. I believe it was the early Church philosopher, Augustine of Hippo, who introduced the idea into the Church and used it to guard his other contribution to Christian dogma, eternal punishment in a fiery Hell, which is also false and was not taught by the apostles or the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The apostle Paul's letter to the Romans chapter 7 should dispel any idea of free will.

Augustine was influenced in his thinking by the teachings of Mani, an Iranian who was the prophet and founder of Manichaeism,a gnostic religion that was based upon Dualism, an eternal struggle between Good and Evil. Since Augustine was at one time a follower of this religion it is easy to see why he embraced the doctrine of an eternal punishment in a fiery Hell and then was compelled to develop the idea of free will in order to justify sending the greater portion of humanity to that destination. Sadly, the vast majority of Christian denominations continue to hold to this doctrine of demons and therefore miss the meaning of the wonderful Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Tell that to Ron Paul

All he did was set an example of true representative government. 30 years later, here we are.

Read my response to The Philosopher.

That may help to clarify what I believe.

I am not quite sure what you mean by "here we are". It seems to me that Ron Paul's goals have not been met and it appears that they will not be met by the efforts of the Liberty movement although there is nothing inherently wrong in trying to meet them. Who knows what effect these efforts may have?

If you recall, his main political goals have been to end the Fed, drastically reduce the size of the Federal government, returning power to the States and the People, and bring all the troops home from around the world, thereby ending the ongoing wars and the American Empire.

Do you honestly believe that these goals are attainable by your efforts alone? Isn't that what is implied by No. 10 in the OP?

As I well remember, Ron Paul himself said that he was not responsible for the Revolution that bore his name but rather he was simply joining what was already being done by the Revolution of the People. I think he would be horrified that anyone would believe that he actually thinks otherwise, that it was all his doing.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Great outline

You managed to identify a broad range of concepts many of us have only began to recognize in the past few years, some of us maybe sooner. Props!

Let's do this, REVOLUTION,

onward for liberty. Watch out for some of the mainstream media glass on your journey, chit is crumbling everywhere, a hahaha…….haha……….HA!

kind people rock

Great post!

Great post! BUMP




"Take hold of the future or the future will take hold of you." -- Patrick Dixon

I would add a point number 11

You realize that government laws, rules, and regulations do not protect you, nor are they designed to.

This is great...

just yesterday a friend of mine commented that more than any action that could be taken at the moment that people need to wake the heck up first. Thanks for this!

#9 is not believable

And before you say "bohemian Grove", remember that these rituals are a way of insuring loyalty in secret society. I've seen no believable evidence of "esoteric powers".

Why it is included I don't know, other than it keeps people on their toes for scientific advances they don't expect. If you are not involved in the scientific world, you would never have expected nuclear weapons and their use would have been disorienting. Scientists on the other hand knew full well what could be done.

So it is a way for the non scientist to keep their bearings, that's about it.

I took it to mean possibly electro-magnetic forces

that influence not only our planet, but the entire solar system, and every individual on Earth; but the word "manipulating" gets me, which to my mind means a "conscious controlling with purpose".
Additionally, I can say there is most definitely a force within me, that more than at any time in my life previously, is like a gauge that indicates simultaneous with my feelings and expressions as a bio-feedback program might to keep me on track to utmost honesty, self oneness, and a comfortable confidence. But I still don't grasp the word "manipulating", so maybe I don't understand your reference.

I'd like to add to No. 8 about one world govt: You are certain through careful analysis that it is the one world govt agenda firstly to destroy America in every way it can, through economic collapse, the intellect-destroying programming of children, the increased insistence of drug usage by govt, ads, schools; through usurpation of America's Constitutions by a tyrannical govt, etc etc. in order to demoralize all countries who still look to America for leadership and inspiration, so that when America collapses the rest will fall like dominoes, and their objective will be achieved.
(Of course, this is what I believe tptb think, but I see America awakening and regaining a spirit that will equal and surpass the high spirit of the original American Revolution, and we will overcome any and all adversaries.)
God bless America, now and forever.

Sounds good

That last part of your post.

but I see America awakening and regaining a spirit that will equal and surpass the high spirit of the original American Revolution, and we will overcome any and all adversaries

I hope so!

And instead of the rest falling like dominoes, We will rise with you!

Leaders and rituals

I'm kind of... how do you know the elite takes rituals very serious? I have never seen them do it. In fact, one of the mysteries is... is there something like the top 10 elites on the planet? I really don't know. Is there a tiny group ruling the rest? Or are there just a few thousand loosely connected people that share a common thing, namely hunger for more power and money?

elite control

Imagine a pyramid... like the one you see on the dollar and so many other places. There is a very small group at the top whose members work in other groups that get larger as you move down the pyramid. There is an excellent book by Jim Marrs called Rule by Secrecy that explains it well I think.

Okay saw the reviews on Amazon...

I maaaaaay want to read it - problem is that there is already a queue of other things to do atm... Thx for the reply anyway!

Slaps hand on forehead....

...I woke up on the same planet again....

I just have to bump this Post!

It is so on the money!

Meditation - Love what you wrote.

The way we vibrate really does have an effect on everyone we are near. You are so right about the meditation part. It's the next step to the awakening.

Just one of many steps :)

It's amazing how the practice of focused silence can be such a rich experience. I don't want to stray too far "out there" for this post, as much as I would Love to, but I greatly appreciate your INSIGHT, Lao!

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Sorry but

Calling the followers of the Talmud and the Protocols "ruling elite" only exasperates the problem.

Luke 3:38
Isaiah 43:3-5

Call them whatever you want

"The crazies with fake money and things that go boom!" seems fitting.

YOU are what gives words their power so either create your own label or just don't take other peoples' labels as seriously.

They only "rule" because they've rigged the system in their favour which makes them feel like they're above the "peasants". They're delusional. I can go on but I'd like to keep this as positive as possible.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The Hidden Golden Rule in the Blame Game

Call them whatever you want or like Pogo, "look at the enemy and see it is I."

Blame the people of Israel or Jews everywhere rather than their Zionist aggressive government. Someday soon we will want people not to blame the American people but rather our aggressive, largely Zionist mentality (not a religion or race) leadership.

Blame Israel....soon it will be blame the US (when the emperor has no clothes).... and then the label will be clear. It will be WWIII.

(And, it may be recognized that we do not need to wait for WWIII to be declared by Congress and the media, we may recognize that WWIII is in progress as we the awakened slumber. The "sides" have been picked and are being covertly supported and armed.)


This is a top post!

I would have to say I agree with the entire post!

When the world awakens to these ideas, we will see change, and hopefully together we can work towards a peaceful world.

We must end the fed!
