Being Woke Doesn’t Mean You’re Awake

Although both terms sound and mean almost the same thing, the truth is that being woke isn’t like being awakened at all.

The only similarity between the two is that you “wake up” as the terms imply. But getting woke is like waking up in a dream. You think you are in control. You think you are aware of reality, but yet you are still in the dream simulation.
