I will talk about the assumption of intense sensitivity in spiritual awakening. Many people experience brighter colors, louder sounds, stronger physical sensations of touch, smell and taste when they experience an awakening, and this is supposed to be a good thing. Yet, this is only "good" if the previous experience was one of no sensitivity because of desensitization. If you reverse the previous condition and assume extreme sensitivity from the start, then spiritual awakening entails a dulling of the senses instead of greater intensity. Thus, the real purpose of spiritual awakening is neither heightened sensitivity or dulled senses, but the ability to treat your body and mind like a stereo system, increasing and decreasing your senstitivity as needed based on your environment to accomplish your goals on your spiritual path. Before spiritual awakening you have no control over the sensitivity of your body, emotions and intellect. After spiritual awakening, you have total control and can respond appropriately to everything in your environment.
