How can I be awakened, enlightened, realized, ascended or in 5d — when it is a journey without destination?
If I awakened a little more, I might realize that any such claims by me were made while talking in my sleep.
Surely there are indicators — signposts along the way, or the terms would be entirely without meaning or merit.
Since this is where I am, what can be claimed is that I've seen progress (an expansion of awareness) in certain areas. I am generally less reactive and more responsive, slower to defend and faster to let go of attachments, expectations and judgment.
What once raised my hackles is now more likely to bring a smile. I am more inclusive, accepting, and compassionate, and feel more equanimity and expanding love. Life becomes more effortless. There are increasingly more times when I feel at-one-ment.
Even those claims can be tricky, as (in my experience) life has a way of testing them. There are no complaints though, since I am life and life is me. There is no separation.
Speaking only for myself, not as a statement of fixed fact:
There is only one consciousness, and it lives in all, from the bunnies 🐰 in my yard to the devil 👿 and his crew. Each of us gives the One Being — from whose perspective nothing is judged as right or wrong, good or bad — an experience of individuality (in divine duality.)
Only walls of separation, built within my mind, could convince me otherwise.
That game of separation I've played long enough. The walls, though crumbling, still stand in places. I work them down daily and with joy, while the breath of freedom cheers me on.
The primary tool currently used for lowering the walls is a recitation not only thought or spoken — but felt, and the feeling of it is a key 🔑.
It's not a magic incantation and the words can be rearranged by intuition. The sentences are short to fit on an engraved tag to be a reminder through the trials of the day, when my mind is too lost in mental thought or emotions to remember.
I Am the One Being,
Boundless and Aware,
Present and Complete,
Moving yet Unmoved,
In Divine Duality.
I Am the Continuum,
AllThatIs and IsNot,
Feeling 'What Is' Now,
Moved by the One.
What is meant by these words can be a subject for conversation, and your first thoughts are welcomed.

My first thoughts are: "this is one of the most beautiful and eloquent things I have ever read."
By far, to my singular perspective and opinion, the greatest use of words even from yourself that I have witnessed. Thank you 😊
I have been hearing this awakening ... What's the actual meaning?
To me, the awakening refers to ever expanding awareness.
How can you do that...I'm a novice
Your FB profile indicates you are a bright young man. You question, and consider. You process thoughtfully and with intelligence. There is not much I can tell you that you would not realize from a lifetime of experience.
Also, whatever anyone tells you can only be from their limited perspective. None of us has the whole picture.
From my lifetime, I've learned many things that I did not know at your age. The journey would clearly have been much smoother if I had been more aware.
Whereas before, gaining knowledge and the quest for Truth drove and motivated me, now expanding awareness has taken their place.
I started by dropping all pre-conceived ideas and knowing that I know nothing. I know what I need to know when I need to know it.
I dropped anger, judgment, fear. They serve to do no good. My strength comes from knowing who I am, and when all else fails, that's all I need to know.
Expanding awareness is, as I wrote, a journey without destination. Keep working down the walls that separate you in your mind from your True Self. Accept responsibility for your own journey. That at least is a start.
