Radical Happiness: A Guide to Awakening by Gina Lake provides the keys to experiencing the happiness that is always present and not dependent on circumstances. This happiness doesn't come from getting what we want, but from wanting what is here now. It comes from realizing that who we think we are - that is, who our thoughts tell us we are - is not who we really are. This is a radical perspective! True happiness comes from experiencing our true nature by being present in each moment.
Radical Happiness describes the nature of the egoic state of consciousness and how the ego interferes with happiness, how to detach from the ego, what awakening and enlightenment are, and how to live in this world following awakening. Exercises are included to help you apply the information and transform your experience of life ... and become happier!
From Radical Happiness: When we are identified with the mind, we believe that we are who we think we are: our self-image and the labels we have for ourselves. But is that who you are? If that is who you are, then who is it that is able to think about this question? What is it that is aware of the ideas that make up your self-image? What is it that is aware of the coming and going of thoughts?
