This is a pretty standard way of talking about awakening, at least from those who have had a taste of it.
Awakening is the divine waking up to itself as all there is without exception, and still functioning through and as this human self.
It’s the divine waking up to itself, or consciousness, or Brahman, or Big Mind, waking up to itself as all there is.
It wakes up from the previous trance, or identification, or believable filter, of being this human self.
And this human self still very much functions as before, operating and doing things in the world, although now from this new context. Sensory input is still from this human self. There is still “internal information” – in the form of thoughts and sensory input – from this human self. And to all the world, it still looks like we “are” this human self.
As somebody said, no human has ever woken up. It’s always what we really are that wakes up to itself while still connected to this particular human self. And the human self then functions in a new context.
This awakening can be more or less deep and wide. As more core sense of I or identification goes, it goes deeper. And as more and more of our human self is included (healed and aligned with this new context), it goes wider. It can also be more or less lasting. The areas that lack depth or width tend to retrigger identification, which is just a reminder that there is further to go and more to explore, clear, and heal. Often, there is a series of openings which support this deepening and widening.
