Finding bliss is an unusual topic in our cynical, often-violent and definitely negative culture. Whenever I mention “bliss & happiness” I usually get sideways glances that mean, “Watch out! Lobotomized Pollyanna* in the vicinity”.
Yet humans have been on this planet for thousands of years. In fact, the oldest known humanoid fossil is one million years young. And for most of those centuries, other cultures believed in spirit and a connection to bliss. WE are the ones who are not in touch with the spirit of our ancestors, in spite of all our supposed sophistication and advanced technology.
Every human being deserves to be blissful. Further, bliss is always right here in our faces – we just don’t know how to access it. I am going through an intense change in my life right now, and bliss is my #1 goal. I have more and more blissful moments in my life and I would like to share some insights along the way.
So … if you think finding bliss is a crock and I am indeed a lobotomized Pollyanna*, then adieu. You have my blessing and I wish you every bit of joy you can find.
However, if you’d like more bliss and happiness in your life, then stick around. We just might learn a few things together.
* ‘Lobotomized Pollyanna’ is a phrase I borrowed from wonderful author Martha Beck. Thanks, Martha!
