The precise moment of impact during self discovery, that's the stuff, that's the real McCoy. It's the feeling of amazement and peace, like you're standing in a lush field of brilliant yellow flowers that seem to endlessly blanket the horizon. A warm summer breeze brushes your cheek.

You connect the dots and say, "Aha I get it" and suddenly you're catapulted further along your path to bliss, happiness & joy.
