Radical Happiness: A Guide to Awakening provides the keys to experiencing the happiness that is always present and not dependent on circumstances. This happiness doesn’t come from getting what we want, but from wanting what is here now. It comes from realizing that who we think we are, that is, who our thoughts tell us that 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.
Radical Happiness describes the nature of the egoic state of consciousness, how the ego interferes with happiness, how to detach from the ego, what awakening and enlightenment are, and how to live in this world following awakening. Exercises are included to help you apply the information and transform your experience of life—and become happier!
From Radical Happiness: “When we are identified with the mind, we believe that we are who we think we are: our self-images and the labels that we have for ourselves. But is that who you are? If that is who you are, then who is it that is able to think about this question? What is it that is aware of the ideas that make up your self-image? What is it that is aware of the coming and going of thoughts?”

About the Author
Gina Lake is a nondual spiritual teacher and the author of over twenty books about awakening to one’s true nature. She is also a gifted channel with a master's degree in Counseling Psychology and over twenty-five years’ experience supporting people in their spiritual growth. The focus of her writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Her teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, A Course in Miracles, and other nondual teachings. In 2012, Jesus began dictating books through her, which she receives in the same way that Helen Shucman received A Course in Miracles. These teachings from Jesus are based on universal truth, not on any religion. Her website offers information about her books and online courses, a free ebook, a blog, and audio and video recordings: http://www.RadicalHappiness.com Note from the author about the books dictated by Jesus: I receive the books from Jesus in the same way that Helen Schucman received A Course in Miracles and many others have received their writings, including St. Teresa of Avila, St. Hildegard of Bingen, Richard Bach, and Neale Donald Walsch. This method of receiving information is similar to taking dictation. It’s a matter of hearing words mentally and writing them down as they are heard, without any thought on my part. I can receive this communication anywhere and without needing to be in a meditative or trance state. All that’s necessary is that I don’t think. It is as if Jesus is sitting next to me and speaking to me, except that those words are heard in my head. I can ask questions during this dictation and receive answers, but the process works best when my own mind is completely set aside. Then, the flow happens smoothly, rapidly, and without interruption until a particular stopping place is reached.
