The natural state of bliss!

Bliss happens when we are connected to our natural state of love. Bliss feels so good, but what is it that prevents us from feeling this consistently?

The instability that our thoughts and emotions create which block our sense of bliss. Our thoughts feed our emotions. If we are thinking repeatedly life is hard and difficult, then emotionally, we can feel sad or even depressed. Alternatively if we keep thinking that life is wonderful we can feel happy and full of joy. When we are caught up in the cycle ossilating between negative and positive thoughts we experience the duality of life. That is the opposing nature of things: pleasure and pain, right and wrong, joy and grief, for example.

Duality engages us in a life constantly dancing between opposite forces, such as feeling happy and sad. When we feel happy, we feel good, and when we feel sad, we usually strive to make ourselves feel happy again. The dance between opposing forces usually involves struggle and/or pain. It is when we learn to go beyond thought into a space of calm and stillness that we experience bliss.

Thoughts are like clouds that hide the sun, or like waves that make it impossible to see the bottom of the lake. When the mind becomes calm and there are no thoughts, we can see things that our thoughts and our constant mental activity hide. WE become aware of our real essence, the consciousness that is beyond the mind

The main requirement for this spiritual consciousness to manifest is a silent mind – when the restlessness of the mind disappears.
