That’s kind of what it was a like. A very rude awakening, I’d like to say. It wasn’t much more than that. I was thrown into some twisted version of reality where they all expected me to be perfect and articulate and to know what I was talking about and how and what I wanted to do.
It didn’t work. I felt so betrayed, by my very body, it seemed. Why didn’t I know? Why couldn’t I know and why wouldn’t anyone tell me these things? There were more things I wanted to know and yet, it was all closed off to me.
Even though they were questions about myself.

It was this morning.
Hope it’s still far from the final one…

spring awakening is perhaps my favorite rock musical. there is so much going on and yet the story fits perfectly into a teenagers life. i understand where Wendla is coming from and I feel her love for him because I have a similar love for someone as well…maybe he’ll be my awakening….

in the past, i was asleep, living in a world, in which i didnt live, i which i never knew, in which i never understood, in which i thought i was awake, in which i thought i had control, in which i had color,
it was all a lie

December 19th 2007. Yes, it was you who woke me up, into a new world.

I feel like shit. The word holds so much promise but I feel absolutely dead and dormant. Whats wrong with me???? What the fuck is wrong with me!?!? Why am I dead? I hate this word.

You have knocked on my door, you have rattled the cage.
You were embedded deeply in my psych, my soul.
I had buried you for so long.
Convinced myself I was entirely self sufficient.
I love you.
I really do

Awakening makes me think of the book. Awakened in the house of night series. It also makes me think about waking up. Waking up to a new m. I need to be responsible and respectful to and of myself. I have one body right now and I need to take good car of myself. Cause I am alone and will die alone just like I was born alone. So I have awakened to this revelation.

It can be rude, it can be good, sometimes you don’t like it, but it’s always for the best. It helps you, never hurts you, and can be the best thing that ever happens to you.

When I wake up I love to smell my mom’s fresh pancakes and bacon. The warm aroma fills my room and it makes my tummy feel good. Then I follow my nose to the kitchen.

It’s dawn already. The entire night of sleeplessness, thinking about work has sent my numb brain to emptyness. What would happened if the numbness is not awaken? I worried about the outcome. The awakening of one’s soul is important, what can one achieve in this stressful world? I longed for many good things to come. I am still optimistic.

it was almost like she was awakening from a dream, except much, much worse. it was kind of like the matrix, she realized with a stuttered gasp, as she clawed her way through the slough of water and sewage and whatever the hell else in this strange society. her life was a really bad movie remix of the matrix and inception right now, she thought grimly, hands slipping on something she’d REALLY rather not think about once more. she’d awakened into a nightmare.

Loud music fills the dark space around me and I open my eyes. I close them to slits and shuffle under the covers, trying to adjust to the slap of cold on my face. I decide to remove them like a band-aid, fast and harsh. The air pierces me.

warm then cold
alarm bell rings
time sings well and
we get old
learn or ignore
hurt is inevitable
but love’s incredible and
we feel sore

It arose from the base of the spine
Subtle yet powerful
A blue haze was not mistaken
over the fields of grey morning dew
The warmth of the orb grew larger
and silently glided up the spine
awakening everything with it’s touch
turning everything to gold

We have been waiting for her to wake for thousands of years. She sleeps, encased in vines and dirt, in a small glass box. There is a light that comes forth from her skin.

Standing under a waterfall of sensations, realizing that the world is more than you could have imagined, more frightening, tantalizing, more everything, that all can be found, the highest heaven or the deepest hell.

She woke up, and once again, she thought of him. Why is he the first thing she thinks of every single morning? She wishes to be free from him, but every morning his ghosts haunt her, and her thoughts of what could have been.

To be inspired with a new way of thinking. To experience a eureka moment. That is your time of awakening. That moment that makes you say “ah ha”

She dived from the dock into the chilled, murky depths of the Atlantic Ocean. She reminded herself of Kate Chopin’s most famous character, except her experience wouldn’t end in death. It would conclude in a fulfilling and appreciated number of years.

Our beloved Prime Minister gave an awakening speech. “The death penalty will be removed from Malaysia law”. Everyone was happy but not me. One of my close next of kin murdered by a immoral bastard!

“Awakening” makes me think of the Mumford and Son’s song “Awaken My Soul”. The first time I heard it was while in the car with my boyfriend, and he was absolutely in awe of it.

Now, these last couple months had been my true awakening. I had finally opene my eyes and saw how truely wrong my past relationship was. It was abusive, both mentally and physically. Now I had a man that would pick me up when I was down, not push me further down. This was real. The past was just a shallow want for someone around, and I no longer will fall for that. I want to be wanted for being me, not just a little puppet that gets it’s strings pulled.

I really need to learn to have an awakening every day, even a literal one, as it sometimes feels like I spend a lot of the day walking around in a day dream. I want to get up and learn something new every day, and not waste my life being miserable as I have been doing. I will try.
By Anna on 10.23.2011
a new beginning, new people, new dreams, new hope. it’s like being plummeted into a vat of freezing cold water then getting ripped out of it. quick. it’s blissful, but scary. it can be a blessing or a seemingly terrible mind changing experience. it’s a loss of innocence, or a new change of path.
By Adria URL on 10.23.2011
The awakening came a little too late. When she saw the fuse being lit, she remembered all of the fun she had as a child playing with firecrackers. Surely, there would be an adult present for these children playing with their fireworks. The thought lingered just as the works went off…

At first, I think of “Awake My Soul” by Mumford and Sons because it is the most inspiring song to me to rise above and be the greatest I can be. After such a long slumber of being lost, I’m finally awakening and rising to my full potential, and it feels so good to finally live MY life as it’s meant to be (another Mumford and Sons lyric).

awakening the time and space above the sky in front of the eyes of time, i will always become the shine in your life, becoming the fire in store for the hunger and the starved in clance.

Awakening – from a deep sleep on a cold morning, wanting to keep the blankets around you. Awakening – on a summer morning with the smell of grass and warmth in the air. Awakening – from a lifetime of wondering “what if?”

The awakening happened in early May. It was a beautiful day to realize I had in been in this marriage all alone for three years.

I woke up one morning and i found that i was awakening to a beautiful, bright, new day. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. It was as if i was awakening to a new world, i was reborn.

My goodness, look at the time. where had the day gone, the house was still a mess, as it was yesterday and the day before that. And yet, there was something in sophia that was awakening. A light, a warmth, she was shedding her darkness at last.

Awakening to see your life flashing before you and realizing its no good and you don’t like it. therefore you change who you are and how you’re seen. That is awakening.
By Hannah on 10.23.2011
This morning as I was awakening, I noticed that the sun was shining brightly. Hmmm…sure hope we have water today, ’cause we’re all gonna need showers for sure. No water. That definitely takes some getting used to.
Thank you Lord that we have opportunity to feel what it’s like to not have water…but that you make it temporary. Thank you Lord that we are in a position that people would steal our trash.
By Miriam on 10.23.2011
it is really hard to be awakened early in the morning. there is a really good song called awakening that is about how the nations need a new awakening to how amazing and all powerful our God is.
By Hosanna Joy URL on 10.23.2011
It felt like I had been asleep forever. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t mind the lull of a tranquil life. But sometimes it’s just nice to have something happen–something good. Not knowing about being in the center of a small fiasco, only to come out on top; talking to an old friend like we’ve never met. I’m amidst my great awakening. I’m not happy, but I believe I’m getting there.
