Bliss of being

Happiness won't come from seeking for happiness.
As Chuang Tzu said, "Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness."
Happiness is the bliss of being,
The joy of contentment.
Not needing anything,
But embracing everything.
Allowing it to come.
Allowing it to go.
Allowing it to be.
Understanding impermanence, gracefully flowing with change.
Not grasping at life, but living life as a continually flowing stream of consciousness.
Inquire into your own mind.
Sit with yourself.
Observe yourself.
Accept yourself.
Let yourself be.

"What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, 

because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much 

extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns 

in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the 

stars, and the form of a galaxy. You are all just like that, and there 

is nothing wrong with you at all."

"We have to learn to trust in the present moment, to welcome change, to allow life to flow in whatever direction that it wants. When we resist change or cling to expectations of how we think things should change, we only create our own suffering. We cannot stop life from living, we cannot prevent things from changing, and we shouldn’t stress over what we cannot control.

Once we see that resisting life is ultimately futile, and that through our resistance we only cause ourselves to suffer, then we can choose not to suffer, and can choose to surrender to the present moment, and appreciate life as it exists in each moment.

Try to become aware of the resistance in your own life. Can you acknowledge when you are creating your own suffering? Can you see how your desires and expectations are what make you suffer? Can you see how your regrets, your clinging to memories, and your failure to let go of the past are also causing you to suffer? If we can be honest with ourselves, we will realize that the only time we suffer is when we resist the present moment—when we resist life as it exists right here and now.

It is never our situation that is the cause of our suffering, but our thoughts about our situation. The way we relate to life determines how we react to life, and the way we react to life determines how we feel about life.

If we want to be free, and if we want to allow ourselves to live in Love, then we have to be willing to stop resisting life, and to break down all of the barriers that we have built within ourselves that keep us imprisoned in our suffering. This often requires us to go to the places within ourselves that scare us, to look at the traumas that hurt us, to acknowledge why we created these barriers to protect us, and to realize that we do not need these barriers anymore. They have served their purpose and we can thank them for that, but we can let go of them, forgive the past, and forgive ourselves for causing so much of our own suffering because of our ignorance of who we are."

"It is difficult to realize deep truths of life and to understand their importance and relevance to our current situation, but to also see the disinterest/ignorance others have when spoken to about these truths, especially when the lack of awareness exists in your family and close friends. I have struggled with this in the past, especially when I first discovered some of life's beautiful mysteries. My inability to relate to my peers was challenging, but it also inspired me to create this account, to spread awareness and to express myself to those who share interest. Over the years I have come to realize that you can't force people to see or understand anything. Even though it is hurtful to see those you love suffer from their ignorance, we have to respect the fact that individuals are on their own journey, and that they will come to realize the truth when they are ready for it. We can't force people to change, nor should we try to, for we cannot be certain that what is best and true for us is also best and true for them. We can however, have compassion for others, and treat them with kindness, planting little seeds of love and knowledge whenever the opportunity arises. We never know the exact circumstances of others' lives, and if we were in their circumstances it is likely that we would operate from their same level of understanding. Appreciate the fact that you have awoken to a greater reality, and respect the experience of others. It helps to remember that there was a time when you too were unaware of the things you now know, so how can you judge someone for their ignorance when you too were once ignorant? Love and compassion are always the way, not fear and judgment. Observe within yourself the way that your mind operates. Where do your thoughts arise from? A place of love, a place of unity, a place of understanding? Or a place of ego, a place of separation, a place of judgment and desire for control? Just some thoughts in need of expression... Thank you for reading. I love you!"
