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.

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.
