Bliss in Meditation.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I hear people talk about the bliss felt in meditation, and even you said in day 22 of free to love that "I trust you've felt the incredible bliss of forging your path to love" but in meditation I don't know such bliss. And besides I thought that our true self is non-dual which means there is no experience and to tap into that stillness means pretty much like going into the deep sleep state. You can't tell the difference between being in the gap and falling asleep because there's only awareness after you come out. So where is this bliss? ,I've heard advaita teachers say that the bliss is the reality of no pleasure and no pain. But nothing doesn't equate to bliss with me. Could you help me understand ananda, explain a little more about bliss?


Ananda, or bliss is declared to be an essential aspect of reality or Brahman, along with consciousness and existence (Sat-Chit-Ananda). But that pure non-dual state of Brahman is, as you point out, not an experience in the common sense of the word. It is pure consciousness aware of itself. However, as individual mind transitions into that universal state, it briefly touches, as it were, that non-dual reality, and in that contact it experiences bliss or ananda. This is why Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita, brahma samsparsham atyantam sukham– contact with Brahman is infinite joy.

    I have reached the state of "no thought" and it was blissful. In my experience, what I felt afterward was a strong "energy" that spoke volumes in my soul that told me that we are all connected. God lives within all living things, we are all energy, from plants to animals...everything. Like the "human" that I am, I lived for that experience again. Unfortunately, the mind, after it experiences this bliss becomes excited for that feeling of euphoria and guess what, it just won't happen!!. After many months of meditation, it happened again so I have approached my meditation time with no expectations and now it happens more often with the same result. Now in my life, when the world gets too noisy, I am calm and have learned to be compassionate and forgiving when dealing with hurtful people. The silence of the mind is a powerful thing!! To me it is the closest I have come to God
