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, many of which reflect the profound discoveries in quantum physics. "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. 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? Richly enlightening and inspirational, this account will stay with you long after the last words have been read. An important book for anyone on a spiritual path and seeking greatly expanded awareness. 2017 Edition, Kindle Unlimited Book.
