Today I came across an Aussie teacher named Isira Sananda. She is part aboriginal and clearly awake. In this blog post, she talks about the process of awakening. She speaks of the falling away of the ‘somebody’, liberation, and, with “a saturated state of integration”, Oneness and LOVE. She does not define stages but rather a process.
“Firstly, Awakening has no exact definition. This is because Awakening is about a process of shifting from the unconscious states of the ego driven identity to a conscious and experiencing state of Self as the eternal awareness and Oneness of all life. It is also because it is a state in which we transcend definition and become pure being.”
Her biography touches briefly on her own awakening but apparently is in much more detail in her autobiographical book. Links are on the blog.
