The aspects of "me" in each world rarely agree on what is true or right to do, yet they can, with training, work in harmony with each other. We can honor the being's delight in tasty food, the personality's thought "finish what's on your plate" and the body's actual hunger, without making any one of them right or wrong, nor letting any one of them run the show.
To live awake, as an integrated being, we can not over or under estimate these different worlds. Knowing you are a spiritual being does not help you manage time or get a job, nor does meditation, no matter how profound, empty your bladder. Each world requires some of your attention, but not all of it, and not all the time. Our experienced reality, the world we choose to live in, depends on our maturity in each of these aspects and our capacity to choose between them.
Those who choose awake are not without pains in the physical, social concerns or energetic karma, they are simply those who have an actual, not theoretical, choice as to which world they give their attention to each moment.
