The soul is what we like to call “the immaterial essence, driving principle, or driving cause of a life”. It’s the part of you that drives you for life.
Therefore, having a soul that is asleep is just like sitting in a car that has no fuel, no steering wheel, and flat tires. You won’t be able to go anywhere with that.
Find out if you desperately need a spiritual awakening:
People whose souls are asleep don’t believe they have much of a reason to question those in positions of authority and power.
They completely trust their parents, their teachers, and anyone else who gives them guidance. An awakened soul never accepts anything as true until it has explored and made up its own mind about it, it never takes anything for granted.
People with an awakened soul don’t blindly accept what other people think is cool, the music that other people like, or the ideas that other people believe in.
They form their own opinions. If you are someone who follows trends, your inner soul is still asleep, waiting to be awakened.
When your soul is awakened, you stay true to your convictions, even if you’re a minority.
People with an awakened soul have come to terms with the fact that change is coming whether or they like it or not, and they are ready to board the train of change.
A sleeping soul, on the other hand, is fine with the current state of affairs, does not see any reason for things to change, and accepts the change imposed on it as perfectly acceptable.
Someone with an awakened soul struggles to understand how the world works. They always have questions.
Someone whose soul is asleep is a part of the crowd, while an awakened soul is in front of everyone. They are leaders.
If your soul is awakened, you sometimes feel very alone and isolated in society, like most leaders or people who want to change things.
Someone has to lead the revolution, even though it’s not an easy task. Even if you take the road less traveled, you feel honored to know what you’re doing and have the courage to stick to your convictions no matter what.
5. Closed mind
An awakened soul has a mind like a sponge; full of holes that allow new information and ideas to penetrate without getting stuck.
Only the things you need to know will remain, and everything else will be forgotten. A sleeping soul is completely closed to everything, no matter what.
Even if there’s an idea you agree with, you’re on your way and have no intention of changing or even following something new.
Conversation is something that sleeping souls enjoy, but it never gets too deep. They like to keep the conversation light and lively.
However, those with awakened souls are aware that there are deeper topics to be discussed. They don’t like small talk. They probably tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.
