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

In The Garden of Eden
I spent the day today basking in the sun, dashing in the rain, lounging in a hammock, enjoying healthy munchies, singing, dancing, drumming, hugging, smiling, laughing; all in the presence of kindred spirits. No wonder the event I attended was called Kindred Spirits Labor Day of Love. I was surround

Resurrection
      Last night I watched one of my favorite movies that debuted in 1980. Resurrection starred Ellen Burstyn, Sam Shepard, Eva Le Galliene, Richard Farnsworth and Roberts Blossom. It is the story of Edna Mae McCauley, who in the first 10 minutes or so of the film, has a

Don't Give Up
As I am in the middle of the fifth decade of my life, the world has become a patchwork quilt of experiences. In the last 55 years, I have splashed in puddles of joy and gasped for air while feeling like I was drowning in sorrow. I have been clutched by fear and basked in light. Through it all, I hav

Heaven On Earth
    "Imagine, will you....Heaven On Earth For Real." These are the words that are on my friend Tambra Harck's Facebook page. I think about it a lot since I believe that we create our own vision/version in our vivid imaginations. One of my favorite songs on the topic, sung by Ma

With An Open Hand
  When you consider all of the things that you desire; from relationships to abundance, from faith to freedom, from possessions to passion, how do you hold them?  What I mean by that is this:  do you hold them with a closed fist; grasping, clinging as if for dear life or can you let go a b
