You have always been total happiness. There never was a time when you were not total happiness. Yet somehow you got mixed up with maya, illusion, and you came to believe that you're a mortal being, separate from everyone else, having to go through experiences to become enlightened. That's really funny. You left your true nature, got pulled into maya and now you're trying to get out of it. The truth is, there's no maya. There's nothing to get out of. You are already that, and all is well.
