Enhanced Bliss

The Question:

Is bliss not the ultimate? Do we need more than bliss for fulfillment -- that perhaps we are even willing to leave bliss behind for periods of time to obtain it?

What then is the source of eternal joy and how do we obtain it?

"Kellyfullmoon" wasn't afraid to take a stab at this in her own words:

"Being in eternal bliss, seems boring somewhere down the line, and oddly enough very isolating, as in, not enough in contact with others along the path and enough experience lived. Wasn't this one of the reasons God himself created the universe, he must have been bored too being in eternal bliss and realized there is always more one can achieve and go forward in consciousness. One of the key words here that strikes me when I read this post was service. I seem to be able to resonate with this option, that through service rendering the needed help to those under, I can go up."


Good answer with a lot of truth behind it. Just as there is night and day in our world even so is there night and day in creation. The worlds are created and perform their function of becoming with all their inhabitants and then they unfold and life goes back to its source. There we experience pralaya, a blissful sleep where we can recharge ourselves and get ready for the next adventure.

It is true that sometimes sleep feels so good it seems you could stay in bed forever, but give it a little time and you feel you've had enough sleep, no matter how blissful it is. Eventually you are ready for a new day and new challenges.

Now during the day you can take short sweet naps that bring great refreshment and correspondingly one can be still and drink deep from the waters of Spirit to give the pilgrim the refreshment he needs to continue on until his purpose is completed.

But think. What brings you the greatest joy, the nap or what you do after the nap is completed?

The scriptures say over and over that we will be judged by our works. The reason it says this is our works and our service is the greatest source of joy for us in the world and out of the world.

"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them." (Rev 14:13)

Their works will follow them where?

The answer, everywhere including the afterlife and even the great pralaya. The new state of bliss we will have during the great rest of Being will be greater than the last one because of our works which will be as a sweet savor to those who were faithful to the highest they knew.

Dennis asks:

"JJ, I have a question.

"How is it possible to live in a 'state of uninterrupted deep peace and bliss' when I am watching my mother suffer in a hospital bed with extreme pain? Or watching my son work so hard only to loose in some undertaking? Or watching my wife go thru extreme pain in 8 old fashion child bearing times?

"I lived in such a state for 3 days after I had a baptism of fire and the holy ghost experience. As I started coming back down to earth, I prayed to not and tried to remain in that state. The Lord told me thru His voice in my mind, 'Sorry, But this is the plan. You are here on earth to experience all things, not just that thing.' You see, I said, 'The Lord told me....' not some ego thing in my mind of who I am or not who I am."


Three days is the normal time period to experience the fire of the spirit. Much more than this and the normal seeker would be adversely affected in his three bodies.

In addition to this baptism of fire there is a center of peace within us all that us available at all times if the seeker follows the correct principles in accessing it. He must detach himself from the world of form and see himself as the observer. You watch the picture show of your life without the real you being in it, but just observing.

You can watch someone being tortured in a movie and because you are detached you will not be adversely effected neither will the movie interfere with your peace.

Accomplishing this in real life is easier said then done but when it is incorporated one simply becomes the observer and accepts that which he cannot change as a temporary thing you are observing which shall soon pass away.

Even after the disciple develops this ability he may want to plunge into the feeling world from time to time else those close to him may feel he doesn't understand or care.

Another step of extreme importance is to free himself from the Beast of unjust, unearned authority and replace it with the voice of the soul. It is impossible to have consistent peace if one gives his power to a representative of the Beast.


Global Warming Enlightenment:

Last Monday - on ABC Radio National, of all places - there was a tipping point of a different kind in the debate on climate change. It was a remarkable interview involving the co-host of Counterpoint, Michael Duffy and Jennifer Marohasy, a biologist and senior fellow of Melbourne-based think tank the Institute of Public Affairs. Anyone in public life who takes a position on the greenhouse gas hypothesis will ignore it at their peril.

Duffy asked Marohasy: "Is the Earth still warming?"

She replied: "No, actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you'd expect if carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down over the last 10 years."
