Here my observation on being/becoming "awake" and "aware": it means that you are now strong enough to take self-responsibility and make choices. It does not mean you are without your issues, lessons or "baggage". You're just able now to choose other than the automatic pilot of before.
I have come across folks who think that it is a grander thing to be awake and aware or that their way of processing or methods of self-awareness are somehow special, so to speak. Argh! I don't agree with that personally. I think that some folks don't need a spiritual practice to have self-awareness and some do. And whatever method to ending your madness works then that is the right method... for you. Awareness is a possibility for freedom from the traps of programming, stories, past-lives, etc. that may be limiting you in your choices for the present moment. So be aware and be awake, just consider that it is your right of passage and not a spiritual superiority club card or an instant pass to "I'm done with myself, so what about you?".
