Always Remember It’s Your Life
We grow up believing , its not OK to pursue happiness, that pursuing security and being practical is more important. In fact happiness, bliss, is the only true goal. Since bliss is our true nature, we cannot help but pursue it. Unfortunately our attempts are misguided. We race to find a sweetheart, we accumulate great stores of financial wealth, we climb the ladder of celebrity, we reach for a big social standing, or we even follow a spiritual path.
We forget that OUR BLISS IS RIGHT HERE WITH US NOW. We believe that bliss can be achieved by having things. As a result of racing so hard, seeking those fantasies that we imagine will bring us bliss, we FORGET the magic of everything around us. The faster we speed up our activities to achieve happiness, the more we lose ourselves in the past or the future, grasping for what is not here. As we pursue this race to nowhere, we grow estranged from our natural feeling of bliss.
This whirlwind is so widespread, that most people have not felt the sensation of deep bliss since they were infants looking into the eyes of their mothers. Others experience bliss during very isolated moments, such as the birth of their children, when falling in love, at weddings, or when receiving a financial windfall.
This is unfortunate as bliss is our birth right. We are blissful beings. Every fiber of our being remembers what it felt like when we were AT ONE WITH THOSE DEEPEST, SUBCONCIOUS TRUTHS.
