With all the talk about enlightenment, freedom, and lasting happiness can seem impossible when you are juggling the everyday problems of life. Once you have one problem fixed another pops up—a constant stream of ups and downs. It seems that life is filled with a steady stream of distractions.
We tend to think of enlightenment as something extraordinary, or something you might be able to attain at some distant point in the future, or you might think it is a state of consciousness so spectacular it is completely out of your reach. But what if enlightenment was completely and total ordinary? What if enlightenment and the lasting happiness it promises is simply here in this very moment?
How does someone become enlightened? Is this even possible? What is the simple practical way of breaking free of even the most difficult and painful life challenges? What is the process that leads to outrageous happiness in the midst of the mess and pain of life?
