A new book review in LILIPOH 'The Translucent Revolution, How People Just Like You are Waking Up and Changing the World' by Arjuna Ardagh,New World Library, Novato, CA starts out like this: Late one evening, Robert was out taking a walk. He had passed through many trials and tribulations in recent years and his mood was blacker than the night. 'I am finished,' his mind announced. He still has trouble explaining what happened next. 'I was overcome by a sense of relief,' he reports, 'A sudden feeling of inexpressible freedom. My body was filled with happiness, as if I was suddenly getting a joke I'd been missing. I was totally here, in this moment. I could feel the trees around me, and hear the sounds without having to listen to thoughts telling me things needed to be different in some way. Everything was being experienced, but the 'me' was gone.'
Over the past 12 years the author has spoken to thousands of people who have passed through similar shifts of consciousness...the majority ordinary people...

Does this sound familiar?
