When a person has remembered who they are, or are in the process of remembering, this is an awakening. Everyone is walking around sleeping, in a dream state dominated by the natural mind, thinking that they are awake, but they are not. They identify with their natural name and their natural body, never realizing that they are not their body...they possess a body.....dwell in it, but that is all. Awareness brings with it a sense of connection, if you haven't reached the connection yet then you are not aware, still sleeping in some way. This connection is with the Source of All and everything/everyone that exists. When one sees and knows this viscerally then it is the most natural thing to act in a loving and compassionate manner as you would like to be treated yourself. This is how these concepts are nested into each other. Spirituality=awareness=connection=love=awake=compassion It is all part of the same state of "mind". The sleeper must awaken. The amnesiac must remember.
