    Bliss in Meditation

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    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?

    Response:

    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.

    Love,
    Deepak

    Intense Emotional Release in Meditation

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    Hello, You may never receive this email, but I will send it out there just in case! I have been meditating for about the last year and believe it is truly healing me and bringing true bliss to my being. Some things I don't understand though. Twice this has happened, I will begin to breath very heavy and feel as though something is being ripped from me. I begin to cry not hysterical by any means (but I feel as if I could if I weren't meditating). I feel a sensation of myself crying out or yelling (but I don't), and I almost wish I could to release it. It's as if I'm yelling in my mind. I'm not sure what's happening. I calm down after a bit, and feel fine, but very exhausted afterward and just rest. Am I still in a meditative state? Is this okay or normal? Thank you for your gifts. They are changing my life everyday.

    Reincarnating Enlightened People

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    Dear Deepak, On July 22 2009 you answered a question about old souls where you said: "And just so you know, if you are enlightened and no longer have to reincarnate again, that doesn’t mean you can’t incarnate again if you want to continue experiencing the beauty of life. Being free from the bondage of karma means you are free and can do what you want." I think this is a beautiful piece of wisdom that many people don't realize however it did bring up a few questions in me about rebirth. Firstly, It is a well established fact that enlightenment is permanent thing. However, if an enlightened person wishes to incarnate again then don't they by default "lose" their enlightenment at their birth? Since we are all born and develop our personalities due to our experiences and environment, does this mean that the enlightened person would guarantee re-remember their enlightenment in that lifetime? Also when an un-enlightened person transitions from life on earth through death and experiences whatever they believe will happen, especially if they have no knowledge of anything spirituality based and are just "regular people", it is understood that they will "have" to continue the cycle of rebirth until they realize themselves, so do they get to choose the circumstances of their next incarnation from a heightened (but not enlightened perspective) or are they merely subject to reincarnate into whatever life the Higher Self chooses for them? I must say I don't like the latter idea because it implies a "separate divine entity" has control over a person's destiny. I would love to hear what you think.

    Law of Attraction and Law of Detachment

    Category:  Ask Deepak

    Question:

    Hi Deepak, How can I reconcile the law of attraction with the law of detachment? If I need to get a clear detailed picture of what I want, and focus on it in order to bring it into my life, how do I simultaneously detach myself from that goal/outcome which I am focusing so intently on attracting?
