Explore one of the Great Mysteries of Life: Enlightenment ... what is it?

Deep in the immense wilderness of the Great Range of the Himalaya, explorer M.G. Hawking has a personal encounter that sheds light on this intriguing question. In a tiny village surrounded by towering ice peaks, he has an experience that illuminates the deepest mystical secrets of conscious awareness and the true nature of "reality" and the world around us.

Richly enlightening and inspirational, this narrative recounts the author’s experience and subsequent thoughts and reflections, many of which mirror the profound discoveries that have emerged from breakthroughs in quantum physics.

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real." —Niels Bohr, Nobel Laureate

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." —Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate

"Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms, for consciousness is absolutely fundamental. Quantum physics reveals a basic oneness of the universe. Multiplicity is only apparent; in truth, there is only one mind." —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate

“Quantum physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality. In a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.” —Bruce Lipton, Ph.D.

"The universe itself has no single history, nor even an independent existence. That seems like a radical idea, even to many physicists. Indeed, like many notions in today’s science, it appears to violate common sense. But common sense is based upon everyday experience, not upon the universe as it is revealed through the marvels of technologies such as those that allow us to gaze deep into the atom or back to the early universe." —Stephen Hawking, Ph.D.

"The universe does not exist 'out there,' independent of us. We are inescapably involved in bringing about that which appears to be happening. We are not only observers. We are participators. In some strange sense, this is a participatory universe." —Legendary Physicist John Wheeler

These profound concepts have been expressed as well by Eastern mystics and sages throughout the millennia, the philosophy of one mind, of the one-consciousness present in all things. Could the experience of enlightenment be the direct experience of this one mind? If so, what does it reveal?

This fascinating account will stay with you long after the last words have been read. An important book for anyone on a spiritual path and seeking expanded awareness.
