Defining Bliss

Once again, I will not attempt to preach or deliver some discourse about any mysterious truth of life.

I will simply define the feeling of full satisfaction with life that one simple girl like me has and is experiencing.

No, bliss is not a myth nor is it impossible to attain and yes it involves living with a non-materialistic perspective.

I will not state that I’m fully out of the material world – yes I have cravings too! Yet, I’ve been able to find the silver line that demarks material and non-material life.

The most important factor would be to find peace inside of your mind. Peace does not mean having no worries. It means even if your life is troublesome (whose isn’t?) you are being able to accept it, deal with it and solve it with the best smile you’ve ever had. Some help and support are crucial in this endeavour. Therefore comes the second factor for bliss – love! Fill your heart with love, first for yourself then for others. Experience, then, its wonderful power. Don’t be mistaken though. Love is a deep value that this modern world has trivialised. Reach for the genuine one, that’s lying somewhere in a forgotten corner of your heart and let it free!

There you are, live it up now! Make the most of it. Seek for no more than the sweet feeling of contentment every morning you wake up till you sleep. No need for weeds brother 😉 It’s all inside of you, seek and find it! Bliss is the gift of appreciation you receive once you’ve found the beauty of being alive and human.

Encounter with a stranger

In In my mind on September 9, 2011 at 8:17 pm

The moment might have lasted a few minutes, what do I say, only seconds yet there was some magic in the air. Was it her (who had been so badly wrecked emotionally)  or was that instant really special?

One particular, unidentified moment in time, spent in facing a complete stranger made her soar in unknown, yet welcoming skies. Their eyes locked for some time, his were deep despite their light colour. Was it for real or did she accidentally step into a dream?

The whole thought of it sounded crazy, how do you actually feel so elated by such an encounter?  There has to be something wrong somewhere. Thinking logically, it’s just a simple “bumping into a stranger” situation, yet it felt like a moment lost in wonderland. Had his eyes been an ocean, she’d drown in them happily. Only a single gaze, only a few seconds of time standing still and it felt like an eternity of bliss.

Maybe angels are actually among us.  They appear once in a blue moon with the promise that not everything in this world is bitter. They surround you with their comfortable warmth by a gaze itself and then disappear subtly.

There’s no use running after such stranger. Life can bring her back on his path or he might be back on hers. Anyway, she’d surely thank him for bringing in some sweet feeling of admiration and contentment to her heart.
