Bliss vs Ecstasy (and when to put the knife down)

Woman dancing in the street.

How’s that Bliss working out for you?

Every awakening emerges in its own peculiar way. 

Some of you will slip in and out of Bliss, some will pretty much be engulfed in Bliss all the time.  I was fortunate to own my own business and work from home, so being blissed out was not so much of a problem, though I’m sure it was a little weird for my family. 

Sometimes, when the Bliss gets very intense, you will need to stop what you are doing and let it take you. 

In time, you’ll learn to breathe right through it and keep chopping those onions or talking to the bank teller without missing a beat.

Bliss is really powerful, but it’s round.  Yes, I said it!  The energy is round, and it’s quite pleasurable.  It’s easy to get attached to it, but please don’t.  Attachment to phenomena, spiritual or otherwise, will impede your unfolding.  Let it pass through you…yummy, but ultimately no big deal.

How about Ecstasy?

Whoah.  Ecstasy is another matter.  If you’ve experienced it, you know what I mean.  It’s like Bliss, but square.  It’s very powerful, and more ouchie than yummy.

You need to pay attention when this happens because if you don’t stop and open and breathe, there could be consequences.  You could fry your nervous system, for instance.  If this happens, you need to stop chopping those onions (yes, put the knife down!), stop driving, or whatever.  Work with it.

Though it doesn’t feel so nice (or maybe it feels so good it hurts?), it is a force that is tuning your various bodies to be able to transmit and hold a very clear and powerful frequency or energy signature.

The good news?  It all settles down after a while and you get better and better at being enlightened!  At first you will be clumsy, weird and lame.  Things will fall apart.  Your job is to surf through it with your sense of humor intact, and to not get attached to any of it.  Remember:  it’s No Big Deal.  It’s like any other phenomenal experience.  It rises and falls away.  Your job is to let it.
