The Path Of Pure Bliss

Bliss cannot be understood. It is extremely difficult to get into bliss. After many lifetimes you get into bliss. But it is even more difficult to get out of bliss. All that you seek in your life is bliss, that Divine Union with your source, and everything else in the world distracts you from that goal. There are a zillion things to distract you from that goal in so many varied ways. So many unexplainable, incomprehensible ways of not coming home, not going back to where you came from.

The mind is kept alive by carvings and aversions-shoulds or should nots, and wants. Only when the mind dies does the bliss dawn. Bliss is the abode of all divinity. It is possible only in this human body to comprehend, to uphold this understanding and having had a human life and having known this path, if you still do not realise this- you are suffering a great loss.

The cravings and aversions in life make your heart hard. There is no use in being polite in your behaviour externally. You can be rude in your behaviour on the outside but you cannot be rough in your heart. If you are rude in your behaviour it is acceptable but not if you are rough in your heart. What really matters then is the intention. The world does not care how you are inside because they cannot see it. The Divine does not care how you are outside- it only looks to your inside. Never let any tiny bit of dislike or craving make a house in your heart. Let it be fresh, soft and fragrant like a rose.

It is such an illusion- you dislike someone or something, and this only makes you hard and your hardness takes a longtime to soften, to disappear. It is such a trap for keeping you away from the treasures of Pure bliss. Nothing in this material world can give you contentment. A mind that only looks outward and seeks contentment gets discontented and this grows and complaints of negativity start hardening the brain, thus clouding the awareness, the aura and forms a huge cloud of negative energy.

When the negativity reaches its peak, like an overloaded balloon, it explodes and comes back to the Divinity. Where else can it go anyway?

You can never escape the Divine, for by nature you are positive. You may take this path only after transversing the long route of negativity or you may take it soon. But you must finally come this way. When the Divinity dawns, in no time the shift happens from the untruth to truth, from darkness to light, from the dull inert matter to the sparkling spirit.

When the heart is hard, there is no fun. You cannot experience fun. But when it melts, celebration begins.

-His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shanker

(one of my favourite spiritual teachers. His teachings are full of truth and simplicity and offers immense guidance to all seekers like us to come closer to Divinity)
