Unlock Your Happiness ~ Enjoy Greater Peace of Mind

Finding Bliss Unexpectedly

For many people, finding quiet inner bliss unexpectedly is an experience that most likely happens during childhood more than in adulthood. Young children's minds are usually more innocent than ours, with attention focused mostly on what is happening in the present moment than on thinking about the past or the future. (I am fortunate to remember having had one such experience when I was a child, probably around three or four years old1.)

Experience of "bliss"
by: PruJoy

About 5 years ago I was undergoing some psychotherapy when all of a sudden I found myself describing the source of everything with regard to myself ... what it broke down into in terms closest to a true description were this ... that out of "nothing" came a desire "to be" & that this desire could only flow thru the creation of another "pole" that could be described as "I" ... the infinite looping flow required between these now 2 poles was "Love" ~~~~

I have now found over the years that the most instant manner to experience "bliss" is to recollect this equation ... 0 ~ 8 ~ 1 ...
