what is bliss?

bliss is an experience when the energies have become subtle enough to activate the human nervous system in a delightful way. The human nervous system and the brain have ways of making the body and mind feel joyful/love like a natural healthy intoxication.

based on my expereince it happens as the chakra system become open enough and clear enough to facilitate the expereince.. the chakras become integrated like i have heard. to me that seems to be the case.

everybody experiences bliss at times. and in the process it is experienced off and on. tell at some point it sticks. once it has stuck then its always there regardless of circumstances, emotions, or ideas of the mind. everything that once before would shut it down no longer has that power over it. the new ruler becomes the subtle energies that facilitate the bliss experience. in my experience everything dissolves into it. thoughts and emotions.

everything is the same. yet everything is different. its beyond the ideas, its beyond emotions, and its beyond circumstances. yet all things matter and are experienced. but all things can not and do not stop the bliss experience. being beyond the things one is more free to be oneself. the ideas such as what some see as political spiritual propaganda are easily seen for what they are in my expereince. those whom think that it happend for them because of any particular believed dogma seem to carry that on with them into the bliss experience. or maybe not. im not or never been into spirituality, religion, or anything of the sort, so i know nothing about that web. other than it has no validity in my experience. my opinion im sure is much different than somebody elses where spiritual/religious ideas played a role in their process. to each their own.

after bliss everything is working to be one. in my experience the bliss started in an area. then began to work its way throughout the body and mind. cell by cell. further clearing and growing of the chakra system. for me it started in the throat, heart, and crown. today it has engulfed most things up. but still some left to clear through. most of which being around my third eye and cells in that area. since that was my last chakra opening up and clearing.

the good news with bliss once it has become stuck into a persons expereince. its a hard, endless, working force. its non dual nature goes about its business regardless of what is. furthermore bliss is what everything is searching for. content and joy/love. once that is there without effort. life becomes much easier. maybe less drive it seems. simply because you become what you were searching for.

in the process

for me i found various things that helped me in my process. the big one was going through my past lives. this happend for me by going into a trance like experience. reliving the expereince. then it would become clear. the body holds the memories. the heart seems to be the key to it.

its been many years since i have done this. i ran out of ones that i could find. sometime soon im going to let somebody help me find more. im sorta excited to see what happens with a little help. i hope things come up and its as effective as it once was.

Wrong samadhi is where the mind enters calm and there's no awareness at all. ...the mind enters calm, and we don't want to come out to investigate anything. We just get stuck on that happiness ... With right samadhi, no matter what level of calm is reached, there is awareness. There is full mindfulness and clear comprehension.

silence(calm) comes with bliss. silence is the male aspect. bliss is the feminine. some people only get the silence. for me silence is a byproduct of bliss. since my way ways the way of the feminine.

call it whatever. samadhi or some other thing. what matters is one gets what one was searching for.

the awareness is non dual. bliss and silence is beyond duality. that is why it is without effort and always on. and being in life. thinking, emotions and all that life offers is not anything that obstructs the bliss and silence. once it has become ones experience without coming and going. again it is non dual.

what some call wisdom i think of as going past the coming and going.

Angel1 What is Bliss?

For me it is pretty un-describable...while absolutely orga**ic...it
is from head to toe, in and out....the tippy top of your head feels it...it runs through you...while,
at the same time Divine Insights are flooding in or downloading into your being...visuals of being the Universe Itself,
Images of being the Yin and the Yang in eternal lovemaking, while
the whole of existence is within 'You'...there is no up or down...no past or present, just this
eternal 'Is-ness' of Love that just does not end.

The altered state endorphins have given us, as we breathlessly shutter, tremble, when we may have finally touched
the one we love is 'that'...
but, the moment is going on f-o-r-e-v-e-r at such a height...and you are aware of it in sweet awe...that ....'this'....'this'...
is the Reality of what is really going on always....the awareness, that Being, Your Higher Self behind your eyes
is in that place, right now...always was, never left it.
You realize this and much more while in this State of Bliss.

That's one way I would describe a few experiences ...but others were different...but, you become 'it'....Bliss....with
huge insights and knowledge filling you.

Satchitananda....Truth is the consciousness of Bliss....being Reality.

I think I got cosmically cheated somehow.

I am fully aware that I am not the mind, nor the body...I am pure consciousness and I have experienced it.

Nope, there's no bliss at all, just calm, peace, numbness, disassociation, detachment, not caring or giving a damn. There is nothing there...nothing!

I feel spiritually ripped off and want a refund. lol

There is bliss of the mind-body and there is bliss beyond that .

The bliss experienced of the mind-body is the bliss that is beyond that .

The only difference is that the mind-body self calls it an experience and that experience falls short of beyond that.

Fundamentally, bliss is what you are .

What would you most like (if this were a spiritual shopping centre )
Bliss, Peace, Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, complete knowledge of the subtle energy body, ability to heal, compassion, empathy, ability to astral travel, ability to know the future... or maybe all of them??
