A Quote by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh on bliss, beauty, mirror, and world

The experience of bliss will give you an insight into the very phenomenon of beauty. Not only does it make you beautiful, it suddenly transforms the whole world. The whole world becomes beautiful because the world reflects you, it is a mirror.

A Quote by Swami Vivekananda on peace, bliss, states-of-being, and true-nature

After every happiness comes misery; they may be far apart or near. The more advanced the soul, the more quickly does one follow the other. What we want is neither happiness nor misery. Both make us forget our true nature; both are chains--one iron, one gold; behind both is the Atman, who knows neither happiness nor misery. These are states, and states must ever change; but the nature of the Atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it; only wash away the dross and see it.

A Quote by Abraham Hicks on reason for being, bliss, guide, joy, and path

Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy -- you're right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body.

A Quote by Bernadette Roberts on journey, nothing, acclimating, seeing, transition, revelation, no self, tried by fire, love, bliss, come to rest, trust, beyond, beyond self, union, and julie sarah powell

This journey then, is nothing more, yet nothing less than a period of acclimating to a new way of seeing, a time of transition and revelation as it gradually comes upon "that" which remains when there is no self. this is not a journey for those who expect love and bliss, rather, it is for the hardy who have been tried by fire and have come to rest in a tough, immovable trust in "that" which lies beyond the known, beyond the self, beyond union and even beyond love and trust itself

A Quote by julie sarah powell on bliss, joy, forever, moment, eternal now moment, self realisation, no self, and true nature

There are no feelings of bliss or joy or any describable feelings at all really, only a sense of forever, filling this moment. Not as a time, forever, or a motion outward to some place, forever, but the eternal now moment as it is. Simple. Like floating in a small room which has many doors and they are all locked shut. Almost sterile. Untouchable.

A Quote by unknown on bliss


Two young adult male sitting on a couch in the basement of one of their parent's house.

-  "Dude, I'm totally blissed out?"

-  "Are you on drugs bro?

-  "No, man.  It's love.  And guess what..."

-  "What's that?"

-  "I can get it anytime I want, it free of charge, and it's totally legal."

-  "Wow.  Sounds spectacular.  Where can I get it man?
-  "In your heart.  Just quiet your mind, let go of any fear you have, and put images of peace or joy in your head, and your heart will provide the bliss."
-  "Awesome bro, I think I'll do that."

A Quote by Stephen Shapiro on passion, skills, and bliss

Focus not just on passion, but also on skills and value. Following your bliss is not enough. You must have the necessary skills to be successful. Ask yourself the following questions: What are you known for being good at? How can you gain other necessary skills? Who can you collaborate with to fill your skill gaps? In addition, you must create value for others. Ask yourself the following questions: How can you make a living at this? How can you help the world value your contribution? How can you creatively stay true to your passion while having the success you desire?
