“I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” ~ Sir Isaac Newton
Many of us can recall a moment of intense and unexpected happiness . . . an experience of suddenly feeling utterly content and at peace in the world. The difficulties and fears that had loomed so large just seconds before evaporated as a more expansive, greater reality revealed itself.
Everyone who experiences a spontaneous peak experience tries to recapture the bliss, but most are disappointed. They search for fulfillment in the next job, a new relationship, more money, a coveted car, accolades, and accomplishments. While these things have value, they are only symbols for what we are yearning for in the core of our being: an abiding sense of meaning, peace, and happiness.
A flash of joy isn’t the same as awakening to higher awareness and reconnecting to the place where true fulfillment abides: our own deepest, spiritual self. For this, what is needed is an inward journey guided by a vision of the possibilities. An opportunity to step away from life’s daily pressures and demands and immerse yourself in practices for awakening.
