What is bliss?
Living a life of bliss is something many people strive for, but very few ever get there. I know this because I see it. Even the people who claim they live a life of bliss may not completely experience bliss all the time. Many people attempt to sell bliss in the form of drugs, sex, or spiritual teachings. What most people do not understand is that bliss is free, and we all have the capability to experience it. We just have to 1) know what it is, and 2) know how to attain it and sustain it. It is a wonderful feeling, a feeling of oneness and euphoria, without the use of sex, drugs, or seminar. Many people spend their whole lives chasing bliss when it is an internal function, it comes from inside, not from the external world. Our brains are juicy pleasure organs, but most people never tap into using much of that part of their brain. Joy and bliss are pretty much synonymous, except bliss just sounds better when I think of it.
I can only describe bliss as a background WOW! No matter what happens to you, even in seemingly negative situations, you can still have that background feeling of euphoria. It is a feeling of love pouring out into the world. You can’t help but be happy all the time. People are drawn to your “intoxicating” vibration. You may even encounter jealousy towards you from those who are not on the path towards bliss. But you don’t worry about that because you’re having such a good time here that nothing can bring you down. It is the ultimate high that lasts forever and you never build up a tolerance to. It is what everyone seems to be chasing, but most people turn up short, but that’s no reason to give up the pursuit.
This is also referred to in the US Constitution as the “pursuit of happiness.” But it is so much more than just happiness. It is fulfillment, joy, enthusiasm, motivation, passion, creativity, and many other states all rolled up into one. You’ve heard the line, “Seek and you shall find.” Ask and it is given. Become aligned with bliss and you will be open to receiving bliss. Become a vibrational match for bliss. Don’t worry, be happy. And so on and so forth. These are all worded descriptions, but you can’t really describe bliss in words, but you can get a general idea from content. You’ll have to fill in the energy part yourself.
I’m not going to lie and tell you I live a life of eternal bliss. I’ve had my moments of bliss, and have had bad times as well. But as far as I can tell, I’m well on the road to attaining bliss in the future because I feel that if I’m going to live this life, I might as well be fulfilled, happy, motivated, etc. It will enhance my normal existence to one of extraordinary, where even the worst-case scenario is fine because I’m enjoying all of existence so much. There is nothing to fear and we all just live a wonderful existence with rich, fun experiences that shake us to our very core.
Opening yourself up to receiving bliss is the first step. The problem with most people is that they do not think that they deserve bliss. They feel, “I am unworthy of such a wonderful thing.” And that’s the first mistake that from the very start will stop you from ever achieving bliss. Your body was created to be happy. When someone is unhappy or depressed, there is something not working right in the body. Working correctly, our bodies and minds are made for blissful experience. But most people don’t believe they deserve this wonderful bliss. Why? Because they are conditioned through all social channels that bliss must be bought, must be achieved, is elusive. Advertisements tell you that you won’t be happy unless you buy the next new car or cell phone. We are told by media and even people we know that we are incomplete and are not whole. We need to go beyond the haze of social conditioning to feel bliss because we’ll never get there otherwise.
So, in just believing that you deserve bliss, you are on the road to attaining it. Ask the universe for bliss. Ask whatever God you believe in. Demand bliss from the highest mountain. Look deep inside yourself for the inner bliss that’s there and always has been there, just waiting to express itself. This may take time, but sooner or later, you’ll start to feel better and better about your life, the lives of others, and seem to attract those who have a similar enthusiasm about life, rather than the pity party crew and gossip queens. Those types of people will repulse you at first, but you’ll accept them for who they are and send out an intention for them to become more blissful.
It’s all about wanting it. Truly wanting it. It’s not about thinking you want it because everyone else seems to want it. It’s all about truly working towards getting to the place you call bliss. Many spiritual leaders have gotten there and lived to talk about it. Those people often strike a chord within us whenever we see them. Think Mother Teresa, Ghandi, Buddha, and possibly Jesus Christ, if he really existed.
Once you have bliss, life flows effortlessly and is a joy to behold. I’ve read many stories of people said to have achieved enlightenment among other states and they just live lives of ease, grace, and lightness. Everyone wants to learn from these people. Some of them are even worshipped. I find it fascinating how far people will travel to talk to a so-called “enlightened” person. It is because you will receive wisdom from someone who has a much more holistic perspective. These people are models of who we are supposed to be and who we were before some tens of thousands of years ago when we became “civilized.”
In such a negative world, where there is always no shortage of bad news, dwelling on the negatives is an exercise in futility. Why not embrace your power as a joyful, happy, blissful human being and be part of a change in consciousness towards love and bliss, rather than feeding fear and negativity? It is a noble pursuit towards serving the highest good of all (or at least that I can perceive). Wouldn’t we get a lot more done if we were so damn happy and fulfilled all the time? We would all be extraordinary in our own unique ways, creating positive ripples out into the world and the universe to ultimately create a better and happier world.
