Both are imaginary concepts. But concepts are useful, but also highly subjective.  If waking up and growing up seem similar to you, I would like to hear more of your own thoughts on this.

waking up is like different states of consciousness like through meditation and other spiritual practices whereas growing up refers to ego development or value systems like in cook greuters model or spiral dynamics or other lines of human development.

You can be enlightened and still be racist, homophobic, have outrageous political views etc.
