We Want Happiness, but… Bliss?

Bliss is joy. Happiness is joy. Seems simple, right? What’s not simple about happiness though, is how we go about getting it. We’ve forgotten that it is the very nature of our souls.

The natural state of a human being is joy. It gets covered over though by our societal obligation to be “real” – smoke and mirrors, that often come with negativity and bad feelings, for what we cannot reconcile about this beautiful world we call home.

So… we end up searching for happiness outside of ourselves,, thinking that it is not within us but in things, in events, in other people’s actions, in daring acts of our own (or not so daring acts). This is why it seems elusive, because whatever we seek happiness in – wholly outside of us – is not the source of our good feelings. The reality is that good feelings can be had by any of us in any moment, and all of these good feelings are created within you. You are creating your good feelings. All the time. Every time. You are the creator. And only you. This is your greatest power.
