Experiences of enlightenment throughout time – and how you can cultivate them
Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss – as different from our ordinary waking experience as waking is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rūmī, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein – people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature.
The Supreme Awakening offers a rich collection of these experiences – and shows how ordinary men and women today are enjoying the same kinds of sublime experiences celebrated by the Buddha, Wordsworth, Thoreau, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and many others – simply by practicing the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation.
