State of pure bliss

If there exists a state of pure bliss then it can be achieved only through meditation. Considering the fact that I am an engineer; believing in this kind of thought without any factual data is a bit difficult for me therefore I decided to try meditation myself.

Meditation isn’t something you can read in a book or watch a YouTube video and you’re done. It takes hours of guided teaching and then self practice. I was lucky to have a professional instructor. My earlier post on meditation was a third person view, an observation. However this time I was doing it myself.

In the beginning its kindda odd you close your eyes and then a million thoughts come into your mind and you start to think why you are doing this. Then comes a point of concentration where you start to take everything seriously and enjoy the session however this happens only if you let your thoughts to flow on their own. There is a huge difference between thinking about something and letting your thoughts come on their own.

After a lot of practice and guidance you finally find yourself in a place so blissful that you don’t wanna comeback from there. There are no thoughts just immense sense of fulfillment and happiness. You instructor might ask you to come back after sometime but you are in a place of zen and peace and you don’t want to be back. This is where real meditation starts.

I had a great time doing this and I am doing it everyday. When I am in meditation I feel like I am in Ireland… may be because of the movies/songs. Hope to see you there.

  1. You said it right that there is “a huge difference between thinking about something and letting your thoughts come on their own.” The feeling and this experience are quite a contrast. Carving out a path for the water to flow takes more effort and is less peaceful than sitting back and watching the water flow on it’s own accord, carving it’s own path. Eventually the water comes to a place where it pools with all water. If our thoughts flow like water, they eventually merge with a greater energy where we experience bliss.

    Great post! I totally agree. =^_^=
