Awakened is the term that some use for enlightenment. This definition of enlightenment says that humans are “asleep” because we are slaves to our cravings and aversions. We feel a certain sensation and before we can even think we have reacted. To be “awake” is to be free of these reactions. Instead or re-action we are free to act. Each moment then is experienced as a completely new moment as opposed to a moment experienced through the filter of our perceptions.
