Bliss of Self!

People seeking enlightenment imagine a state full of bliss. The idea of bliss comes from sensual enjoyments. Ego multiplies the bliss of sensations infinite times and assumes it to be enlightenment. The sensational bliss is always limited in intensity and duration by definition because senses are limited in time and space. Thus idea of infinite unadulterated bliss of Self is merely an idea. Jeevanmuktas tell us that bliss of Self is actually of nature of peace without any sensations and contrasts.

This peace will definitely not appeal ego because it’s seeking sensational bliss. Since it’s imaginary it’s false. True natural state is our everyday nature without mental noise. It’s peace. The truth is–there is no such thing as infinite bliss. Bliss experienced by senses can’t be made infinite. Pleasure is limited because instruments experiencing it worn out soon. The reflection of peace is experienced as sensational bliss but ego keeps assuming that it’s possible to have infinite bliss.

The advertisement of infinite bliss is necessary to lure ego into a self-destructive trap, otherwise ego won’t commit suicide! Hence you see so many books, gurus and cults telling you about infinite bliss. Ego won’t get attracted to either peace or harmony. It is so addicted to imaginary bliss which is similar to intense sensations.

Cold Bliss!

Surrender meditation is different from other forms in that it’s more of relaxation than concentration. You simply lie down and witness the flow of energy. Since we are not mindful in our activities there is a lot of energy trapped in muscles. We also have a lot of energy trapped in unwatched mind–in emotions. Witnessing this energy brings it into awareness and releases it. If we aren’t aware of this energy then it remains in the dark and causes unease and stress. When you surrender, you do nothing but accept life, the moment and flow of energy. The aware intelligence is itself working to create balance-to release stress and energy which is trapped in muscles and emotions.

Who Is God?

God is a word so heavy with the usage down through ages that modern mystics look for new words to convey their message. But if I want to keep it simple, I should say God is Good. God is the sum total of all goodness. Wherever you find hope, faith, trust, compassion, charity, friendship, love, peace, light, happiness, help, kindness, guidance and other such positive values, you feel God is around you.

Godliness is nothing but touch of life. Life is God. God is life. Reality, unity, totality and harmony is one awareness pervading whole existence. You may call it by any name it remains the same and it remains beyond names.
