Examples of awaken in a Sentence

  1. White House:

    It would also awaken every American to this simple fact: if this scourge has not found you or your family yet, without bold action by everyone, it soon will, you, Mr. President, are the only person who can bring this type of intensity to the emergency, and we believe you have the will to do so and to do so immediately.

  2. H.W. Mann:

    Spiritual consciousness is difficult to understand because it is beyond thought. We cannot really understand it through the intellectual process. It is something we must experience to truly understand. We must step out of the dream and into our true essence. This is why we call it the awakening. We awaken from basic human consciousness. The ego is a necessary viewpoint to operate from in the physical world. But it is a dream like state. A state identified with the mind-body. It is not who we truly are. We awaken to actual consciousness. We awaken to spiritual consciousness.

  3. Simone Weil:

    There is something else which has the power to awaken us to the truth. It is the works of writers of genius. They give us, in the guise of fiction, something equivalent to the actual density of the real, that density which life offers us every day but which we are unable to grasp because we are amusing ourselves with lies.

  4. H.W. Mann:

    Spirituality is life through awareness of our true essence. In essence we are of the energetic realm. We are conscious energy. We illuminate from source. Like rays of sunshine illuminating from the sun, each of us are part of the whole. Collectively we make up supreme consciousness. The purpose of human life is for each of us to express our higher self. To awaken. Together we complete the whole. As we awaken, the greater good is done.

  5. Albert Camus:

    When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
