In the Hindu mythology, the spiritual awakening is a woman called Ucha. Her name means “the dawn”. The sun is in love with her, that is why he comes after her every morning.
One could say we are lucky she shows every day otherwise there would be no light!
The dawn usually comes after several lives. For me, consciousness of the soul is where spirituality begins.
At this stage, I must share with you what a master told me: “Once you have discovered spirituality, no matter how often you meditate or practice yoga, you will never be able to find happiness in life as you knew it before. So if you want to stay happy: stay away from spirituality!”
