My life’s purpose is to help those who are mystically inclined… find Oneness.
Note: I believe this is the first blog to record someone’s enlightenment transition (blogging both before and after enlightenment) on the web. Please let me know if you are aware of another.
My name is Wayne (Wirs) and for much of my life I worked as a software engineer—sitting at a desk eight hours a day writing code to help huge corporations run their business. Yet at the same time, I was also a very serious spiritual practitioner—following the traditional Eastern path of meditation in my quest for enlightenment.
Fading Toward Enlightenment, a book I am both the photographer and author of, describes my efforts, the setbacks I encountered, insights I experienced and ultimately finding inner peace from the lessons learned. It has a five-star rating on Amazon.
On August 1, 2008, after selling practically everything I owned, I headed out to live the life of a modern-day nomad, traveling North America in a second-hand RV. Much of the first six months of this blog covers my initial experiences with this nomadic lifestyle.
During my travels, I wrote three four five other books and have taken literally thousands of photographs, a fraction of which are displayed on this blog.
Over a month-long period toward the end of August 2009, I awoke to what most would call enlightenment, with the final transcendence of the ego on September 17, 2009 during my Dark Night of the Soul. I recorded these events under the topic Transition. The remainder of this blog is dedicated to helping others understand and awaken to their own enlightenment.
The Mystical Side of Enlightenment
What probably sets my work apart is that I focus on the mystical aspects of enlightenment—the Fullness aspects rather than the more common Emptiness aspects. I see God—what I call Her (my Beloved)—in everything. I have come to realize the importance of the Soul as a stepping-stone to Mystical Oneness (enlightenment) and how synchronicity implies a Divine Intelligence.
My work is for those who are tired of the deadness and extreme cerebral aspect of today’s non-dual teachers.
My work is for the “spiritual but not religious.”
My work is for those who want to feel the Divine within themselves.
My work is for the mystic.

Please help me build a platform
I'm working on my next book---my opus on everything I know about awakening---and whether I choose to self-publish or find a traditional publisher, I'm going to need to build a much larger platform of active readers than I have currently.
