Radical Happiness: A Guide to Awakening by Gina Lake provides the keys to experiencing the happiness that is always present and not dependent on circumstances.

It comes from realizing that who we think we are, that is, who our thoughts tell us we are, is not who we really are. This is a radical perspective! True happiness comes from experiencing our true nature by being present in each moment.

Editor Will Steacy asked each photographer to abandon the conventional tools needed to make a photograph - camera, lens, film - and instead make a photograph using words, to capture the image (and its attendant memories) that never made it through the lens. In each essay, the photograph has been stripped down to its barest and most primitive form: the idea behind it.
You may think it matters what happens. But what if the only thing that matters is where you are experiencing from, where you are looking from? What if you could experience all of life from a spacious, open perspective where anything can happen and there is room for all of it, where there is no need to pick and choose, to put up barriers or resist any of it, where nothing is a problem and everything just adds to the richness of life?
