We began Daily Bliss back in 2017 – the date this post was originally published. We had no idea of what the (r)evolution of bliss would become. Now, all Daily Bliss posts have become Real Bliss. Who knows where we’re headed now.
Welcome to the (r)evolution of bliss! I’m happy you’re here.
Wherever you are, bliss is. What is bliss really, you say? Well, only you can answer that for yourself.
Hate it when people say things like that? Ahh…. Well, read on.
I created the (r)evolution of bliss just for this purpose. Bliss is not something you can tell anyone how to find. Words defy the purest experience of it. It is personal. It is mystical. And, it can be miraculous. This is why it must be sought out and found by each of us for ourselves. I created this website so that you can garner…
A series of bold reference points.
We are all explorers. We need markers for our adventurous exploration, to help us decipher what life is to us in a moment, or in a bigger picture.
Now, you may query… How do you get to bliss, when feeling blissful is a tall order? How do you get to bliss, when only despair is in sight? How do you feel hope-full when you feel power-less around someone, or because of an incident in your life?
A second marker… from Joseph Campbell, American mythologist, writer and lecturer of the 20th century.
Creation is a sustained period of bliss, even though the subject can still be very sad. Because there’s the triumph of coming through and understanding that you have, and that you did it the only way you could do it. You didn’t do it the way somebody told you to do it.
— Alice Walker, 20th & 21st Century writer of The Color Purple and more
And yet others…
Heartache is very fertile ground for song-making but so is happiness, so is absolute bliss.
— KD Lang, 20th Century popular singer & songwriter
If I could learn to treat triumph and disaster the same, then I would find bliss.
— Kathie Lee Gifford, TV personality
I envy people with dreams and passion, but I don’t think that way. I still don’t have a ‘bliss’ to follow. For people like me – I suspect that’s most people – holding out for a ‘dream’ or ‘passion’ is paralyzing. I just like having work that I enjoy that feels meaningful. That’s hard enough… but it’s enough.
— Jane Pauley, TV News personality
And one last… for good measure.
Bliss can be defined very differently by so many. It can also be defined by everything in a person’s life, or by nothing at all. For myself, at one time, I had no idea what bliss was. I was like Jane Pauley. I had no idea what “following your bliss” meant. It was right there and then, in my inquiry, that my journey began.
I wanted to know. I wanted to experience ecstasy, and bliss. I knew that they could exist inside the realm of sexuality. Those were no-brainers for me. However, I saw the possibility that ecstasy and bliss could exist in a new realm, without sexuality. And moreover, what I discovered, was the experience of ecstasy and bliss from within.
The key to experiencing bliss within yourself is to be willing. Willingness is number one.For a good many of us, complaining and expounding upon the negative aspects of our life experience is where we place a lot of our focus and attention. Complaints and negativity are one end of the spectrum, while a willingness to be surprised and delighted by life is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Yes? (The saying, “Do you want to be right, or be happy?” comes to mind.)
Bliss is our natural state. Joy is our natural state. There is nothing we need to do, to achieve or to attain to experience bliss. In fact, there is only what we need to release, relinquish, and recover from within ourselves to experience bliss. But often those are more difficult to ascertain than looking to actions to aid us. At least actions are something we can tangibly do now. We can learn and figure out formulas and take actions – lots and lots and lots of them – to get what we think will give us happiness. But when we consider the depth of what is within us over how much we rely on physical tangible actions to make us happy, we get confused and lost.
The intangible is, well, intangible. But that doesn’t mean it’s beyond our reach. We can have anything we want. And the (r)evolution of bliss is out to show you how. We’re out to make it simple, relieve you of your stress, and bring your bliss out in you.
So join us as we initiate a revolution and evolution of bliss for everyone. There are innumerable ways to experience bliss, and we will explore many of them here. Come back… again and again to get what you want.
Here’s one last marker in this post for your adventure. Where will your bliss journey take you next?
Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you’re connected to Spirit… When you’re [connected], you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life.
— Wayne Dyer, 20th & 21st Century writer of many self-empowerment books
