Sally Bongers, the distinguished Australian cinematographer, compiled these interviews while researching subjects for a documentary film on Enlightenment. Initially she sought out established spiritual teachers, but her emphasis changed to interviewing ordinary people who had experienced a shift of perception which, in the Eastern tradition, would be called Enlightenment or Liberation. She found men and women who still live their lives much as they had done before the realization, working and living in the everyday world. Seven of their stories were chosen for this book. Hearing these people talk about living with this understanding in the real world (not in an ice-cave somewhere!) confirmed the closeness of it all. These stories make it clear that Enlightenment can “happen” to anyone, regardless of so-called spiritual qualifications.

From the Back Cover:

Seven people tell the story of their awakening

In oral histories from Europe, USA, UK, and Australia, we hear of radical transformations, while the person's everyday life continues.

“It's like a sort of living, vibrating, interested, alert 'something' that permeates absolutely everything and is everything—and you know, in fact, that it's always been there.”

“The self image fell away. The habitual idea of yourself gradually faded away until there was just what is seen, hanging there in nothingness, in emptiness.”

“For me, realization has been an awareness that I am not that one who is going to die. It's such a simple thing in a way. It's such a simple thing.”

“You already know this, but the mind says: ‘Well, I don’t quite understand.' And that's the problem. The mind wants to understand something you already know. And the mind can't understand it because it's not logical. It's not rational.”

“All of this is happening and all of this is me.”
