Outer vs Inner Awakening

So, awakening… what’s that?

To me it refers to two interdependent yet distinct processes. Inner and outer. One focused on the self, one’s inner landscape or spiritual life. The other focused on so-called consensus reality or one’s outer life: society, history, cosmology, philosophy, etc.

To “wake up” can mean undergoing one, the other, or both of these¬†processes. And sometimes they can be closely linked and/or mutually strengthening.
