There is so much out there about awakening, nirvana and enlightenment. I’ve recently found the topic mulling and percolating in my brain and every day experiences. How lucky am I to be pondering on this age-old concept/process.

I’ve spent so many years searching for a reason, purpose and direction. What I’ve found in the last few years has all come together to show many different concepts and metaphors to describe the same thing.

Your soul’s natural state is JOY. Pure unadulterated JOY.

Then comes all the other definitions;

  • Oneness: Being in the ‘what is’ with no effort
  • Pure acceptance of self, others and physical nature
  • Abundance
  • Love
  • ¬†Anthony de Mello: Waking up
  • Eckhart Tolle: NOW – presence

At the end of the day, what ever words you want to use – the end result is the same, it’s: Getting Happy – effortlessly.
