Welcome To Bliss!

 

Welcome to Bliss~”

So says the sign on the doorway into a new way of considering your life. I invite you to cross the threshold boldly to see what awaits you on the other side. Not quite ready for boldness? That’s ok. Part of living your bliss is a genuine way of being that works for you. No need to ascribe to anyone else’s ideas of who you are. As I write this blog, or ‘it writes me’ since I am open to allowing the ideas to lead me as well, I am encouraging you to come along on a journey of exploration that can lead you to greater fulfillment, pleasure, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, enhanced vitality and more loving relationships; most especially with the man or woman in the mirror. The timing for writing this blog could not have been more perfect since it is only recently that I have begun living fully what I am offering you here. What you will find as you visit the world of my imagination, are portable techniques that you can put to use immediately in your personal and professional life, stories of lives well lived, people that inspire me who will likely do so for you, resources for living a joy drenched life, as well as ‘bliss bites’ that are inspirational quotes to sweeten your day. As a Bliss Mistress, I claim my responsibility to play big in the world, not settling for less than a full, rich existence. Are you willing to play too?

 

Ask yourself these questions:

How would you like to live a life that sings, soars and shines?

What it be like to experience yourself as a human sparkler?

Or simply, what would it take to step forward and move past self imposed limitations?

What does bliss mean to you?

Philosopher Joseph Campbell; writer, speaker and lover of myth spoke about ‘following our bliss’, doing what we are passionate about, While that is exciting, I take it a step further and recognize that bliss is portable and self generating. According to my free handy dandy on-line dictionary; bliss is “extreme happiness, ecstasy, spiritual joy” It goes on to elaborate, as it describes: “seventh heaven” and “walking on air”, “to experience or produce ecstasy or intense pleasure or satisfaction from or as if from a hallucinogenic drug or a mystical experience: usually with out” It is fully possible to live a bliss-filled life without being a ‘bliss bunny’ or as a friend refers to a ‘bliss ninny’. and function in a grounded way. As has been attributed to spiritual teacher and author, Ram Dass “You still need to remember your zip code.” As you read this column, it is my intention that you give yourself permission to immerse in bliss in a way that serves you. Know that bliss is not always, in the words of the Lesley Gore song “sunshine, lollipops and rainbows”. Sometimes it is still and silent; oftentimes occurring when alone; absent the buzz of mind chatter.

This blog will encourage you to look at your day to day, through the eyes of a Bliss Mistress or Bliss Master. No more settling for less than what you deserve and desire. How about claiming bliss as your birthright? Someone in a state of bliss might see the glass as ALL full, or perhaps even full to overflowing. The truth is, it IS always full; whether full of liquid or air. As with anything else in life, the choice is yours. 

This blog will be so much richer and fuller with your active participation.  The world needs your particular imprint, your love, your way of viewing it, your energy to keep it spinning.  Please share your comments, please share this with those you love. <3

I had an interesting series of events over the past few days after writing a blog entry for The Huffington Post. It was called Why I Am Proud To Be A Total B*TCH!  As I was typing the words, I had a bit of trepidation come up and a sense of uh oh, should I be writing these words and validating wha

Child's Play
I've been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years afterward,  so I had some time with them and with my grandmother as an 'only child'

Sleepiphany
This being a writer brings with it a penchant for word mash-ups and unique configurations. Many in my life share that talent. Yesterday while perusing Facebook, I noticed a term coined by a fellow wordsmith Shawn Allen. He was commenting on having taken a nap and then awakened with what he referred

Love Poems to God
Words come from a Divine Source, as far as I am concerned. since my writing (as if does for other wordsmiths) 'writes me'.  It flows through me and not from me. There are times when I have looked back at journal entries or articles I have penned over the years and think "Who wrote this?  I don't r

Unremarkable
We all like to think of ourselves as extraordinary, exceptional, and  a slew of other superlatives. Is there anyone who wants to feel ordinary, as if they have not accomplished anything of note? Chances are, since you are reading this, you have indeed achieved a modicum of success. Likely you le
