Monday Musings & Inspirations on Bliss & The Ocean of Happiness!

The following quote is no doubt a familiar one.  It is one that has been said many times in many ways by many wise men and women.  

"When you follow your bliss a kind of track opens up, that's always been there, waiting for you. And the life that you should be living, is the one that you will be living."

~ Joseph Campbell

 

The next quote makes so much sense.  We interpret it as appreciation of what we have, instead of what we do not have..  

"There's only one reason why you're not experiencing bliss at this present moment, and it's because you're thinking or focusing on what you don't have....But, right now you have everything you need to be in bliss."

~ Anthony de Mello

 

Our Yin* Yoga teacher has a name of each class in the 8- week program we are practicing on "Flexibility and Beyond."  Our Sunday class, yesterday is called Bliss, and it inspired this post. 

*Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine, with asanas that are held for longer periods of time than in other styles. For beginners, asanas may be held from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.Wikipedia

These postures are held with supports of pillows, bolsters and blocks and it is of paramount importance not to push or strain.  The goal is just to release  and savor the release.

 

Coincidentally, in our  Sunday mastermind, our friend talked about a book called The Body Keeps  the Score.  The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma is a 2014 book by Bessel van der Kolk about the effects of psychological trauma, also known as traumatic stress.Wikipedia

 

Bliss is both a state that can encompasses the mental and physical nature in our lives.  Each day we focus on keeping up a momentum of feeling good !  We focus on the positive aspects, even when the unpleasant comes up.  It does, it is part of living, as it the victory of turning lemons into lemonade.

 

The key for us is to find the perspective that will right us back on the happy train.  It may mean, a walk on the beach, cleaning a drawer, pulling weeds...it has no significance other than getting back to our happy place.

 

"From tiny, tiny waves of joy, one gets to the ocean of happiness, which is called bliss."

~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

 

Wishing Everyone a Blissful Monday!
