“In the case of being “Woke” many people claim it, but exactly how Woke are you? It’s a term that’s often thrown around casually. Some people openly admit that they just “don’t want to know” certain things. Like anything else, your awareness is something that can be measured in degrees.
The Physical Plane
Knowledge of self is something that I truly believe is the first step. Becoming self-aware is not easy. For some it never happens until they reach old age. If you want to spare your children a lifetime of confusion, and never knowing what they WANT, help them to achieve at least that level of enlightenment.
The Mental Plane
When you have a strong acumen for the economic and man-made realm you are using your cerebral powers. Hard working, successful people are usually said to have transitioned into the Mental plane of enlightenment. They know what it takes to thrive in such an environment.
The Spiritual Plane
Many people move through life never knowing their place in the universe. A spiritual person considers their actions and the many possibilities that can result from them. As a result they are often the picture of stillness. The stress of the previous planes does not affect them as drastically. It is common for such a person to receive exactly what they need with minimal effort.
It is also my belief that every idea exists on each one of these planes, in a certain manifestation. I’ll refer to them often. However you define enlightenment and being “Woke” though, is up to you, but knowing the approaches might help you to achieve a better outcome.
