A reader (Daniel) asked me, 'I have been hearing this awakening ... What's the actual meaning?'
This continues our conversation from Part Three. Your comments are welcomed.
A note regarding my response to comments.... I see FB notifications, but when I tap to respond, it goes to the 🔝 of the group page, and oftentimes scrolling does not find my post. A more certain way to reach me with comments is over my website, timeline, or Messenger.
Daniel, you wrote that you are a student and have questions about spiritual awakening. I am guessing that English is not your first language. My wife did not know English when we met in 2000, so I understand the difficulty of communication, if my guess about you is right. Would you tell me something more about yourself, if you can?
Where do you live?
How old are you?
What are your fields of study?
What are your main interests?
What attracts you to awakening?
I'm from Nigeria.
I'm studying project management technology at high School.
What attracted me to it was that I think there's future there.
Thank you 🙏. You asked about chakras:
'Wait is it presently in my body and what are they used for?'
I will write ✍️ more later....
Are you ready for this?
What do we know about the human body, and the universe we live in?
My response may not meet the rigors of science, but then, scientists rarely agree amongst themselves.
When they do come to a consensus, just give it time, and eventually they'll come to a new consensus.
The new science of Biocentrism turns classical science on its head. Old science says consciousness emerges from biological life. New science says everything we perceive emerges from consciousness. In other words, consciousness existed before the worlds began.
Consciousness does not equate to God, though they might be loosely associated. If there is a creator God, or gods, He/She/It might also have first appeared in, and been created by, the cosmos of consciousness and be a hologram like us.
Naturally, there's not much consensus on that, at this point in our apparent timeline.
Bottom line, in my view, on what we know, is 'nothing.'
Sure biology can dissect a body and measure each of its parts and explain the functions of each gland and organ.
Some people take measurement and repeatability as a sign that it's real.
Real, where? In the illusory holodeck of the mind? The magnificent architecture of the brain makes an interesting study, even for a novice like me.
Basically, it re-arranges sensory input into comprehensible pictures -- our view on the world. When two or more people agree on what they see, it is called reality. Reality is a consensus on the hallucinations of our brains.
Where would we have to go to see what is actually 'out there'? Outside our brains, but how?
We don't know that what we each of us calls 'me' survives outside the brain, though there are numerous accounts of Near Death Experiences (NDE). If we had a general consensus of the survival of our essence after death, what would that change in our society? Imagine, no fear of death.
Okay, I am wandering from chakras. But to start at the basics, and I am not trying to convince you of anything, just sharing what feels true and useful to me in this moment, we could look at the more fundamental composition of our bodies.
Remembering a post on our electric universe, I did a search on the Whole Human site, which I have written since 2016. I no longer relate to much of what I wrote, but still understand the basic composition of all we perceive to be frequencies of energy.
There is of course a difference between conceptual and experiential understanding. But, does that mean experiential is more 'real' than conceptual? Not necessarily. Many have described a tunnel of light as part of their NDE, but there is much debate about what that really is — a fabrication of the brain or a somehow more objective experience.
Well, honestly, everything we perceive and call real is a fabrication of the brain, and there is no such thing as an objective reality in human experience. From a cynical view, science, religion and philosophy are nothing more than a rabble of opinion.
Just consider, if all that science, religion and philosophy can study 📖 is within a holographic illusion, what can they tell us about the Actuality? They try, really hard, and come up with concepts like the Absolute, but those are still concepts generated by a holographic brain.
In the midst of writing this I came across a post with the quote, 'All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.'
Your teachers or professors might not like that. People in general aren't very happy about having their worlds 🌍 turned upside down. ⬆️
In the Deep Space Nine series, Vic Fontaine is a holographic singer in a period-specific holosuite from the Sixties. In one episode, his band threatens to quit. A human says, 'They can't quit, they're holograms!'
Vic answers earnestly, 'They don't know that!' Welcome to Holosuite Earth.
The motto of the Theological Society is 'There is no religion higher than Truth'. As a teen member of the Society, I added, 'And the purest Truth is experience.'
Now, the only Truth I would trust as an objective perspective would be one seen from the viewpoint of the One Being, the cosmos of consciousness, were it possible while in the body. That, of course, is my chosen belief. We cannot escape our beliefs, and might as well accept it. It behooves us to choose beliefs wisely, as they shape our lives.
Regarding chakras, there is much written about their existence, pro and con. Whereas once I was a seeker of the 'Highest Truth', after realizing there is no such thing in the human domain, I grew okay with choosing my beliefs according to their usefulness towards my purpose in the moment.
Having settled on my identity as the One Being in divine duality (individuality), and on my primary purpose as giving my One Being aspect an experience of individuality, I can just relax and enjoy the ride.

An excerpt from one of my earlier posts serves as an introduction to the subject of chakras, and to begin addressing your question:
When my wife and I started doing energy healing in Andalusia in 2000, I felt somewhat important. I had rescued myself from a self-imposed limiting dogmatic belief system, co-dependent relationship, and sexual suppression, and was now being interviewed on English-speaking Spanish radio stations, and 'healing people' from Nerja to Tarifa.
In upscale Marbella, though, people wanted credentials, and were un-impressed by newbies to the healing scene. My lightly informed comment about chakras drew a disgusted response. 'You're not going to talk to us about chakras, are you? We learned about those years ago.'
Seems the ancient wisdom system to balance and heal was not currently in vogue in Marbella. I knew little about chakras according to ancient wisdom, and still do, as I seem not one to study in-depth, any pre-fabricated teachings or techniques, preferring to explore and experiment on my own.
However, as life would have it, twenty years later my interest in chakras is revitalized [update: my interest in chakras has diminished, replaced by other passions.] And it's okay if no one else is interested. Definitely I keep my explorations and experimentations of the energy wheels to myself.
But I will say, Chakra reading cards have become a piece of my daily soul journeys, in which my soul traveler explores the cosmic Tree of Life, and it's dimensional planes which correspond to the energy wheels of my human body. Ah, there's the correlation.
[Update: the cards and Chakra Tree of Life (illustrated by the image) played a key 🔑 role for a time, but I have moved on.]
My intuitive sense, before any other input, was that the energy wheels most imbalanced in me are the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras.
Of the first two cards pulled from the deck, the Self Mastery card relates to the Solar Plexus.
On the site of Luna and Sol, there is a chakra test, and it indicated my Sacral is the most imbalanced.
After receiving the cards, on my soul journey, I saw in my inner vision very clear colors of red, orange, and yellow.
Yesterday [update: this was written several weeks ago] the card from the deck was 'Truth', and it speaks to me, 'Everyone has their own perception of the truth, their own personal understanding, and it is not always going to be the same as yours. You are being encouraged to become aware of your truth in a particular situation. It is time to trust and believe in yourself and connect with, follow and express the truth that resonates deeply in your heart.'
Earlier I wrote about ID tags which serve as a focal point (on what the apparent mind perceives as an abstract concept.)
The tags are one of my newer ideas -- the latest version is still on order. But, I can report that yesterday while holding a tag and feeling the words, I had an expansion of awareness to my One Being aspect. It was brief but immediate, and felt very real.
