Awareness happens when you raise your vibration enough to touch the Oneness. You become aware of all that is. When you quiet your mind you start to enter awareness. In awareness you become aware you are a part of all spirit so you know all sorts of things you mind cannot give you. Awareness is often being at peace. Enlightenment is the end point where you reach- a pinnacle of knowing- and being ONE with all. However there are many steps of enlightenment. Many levels of knowingness as you walk up the ladder of awareness. As humans we tend to see things in black and white. Awareness puts you at peace since you are connected to all. Enlightenment enables you to reach the full light and have the ability to share it with others. There are, however, many stages of enlightenment.
