Eternal bliss comes from within, from the soul that lives for eternity. Tapping into this bliss is something that many of us will never achieve. This bliss is different for everyone because everyone is different. We are all unique in our own way andit is up to us to discover what our bliss means. We may have an idea, even an incling, but until we go deep within ourselves it will remain just that.
Many of us never take the time to truly get to know ourselves or find out what makes us tick. Many of us never take the time to stop and ask ourselves questions. We are living in an age now where truths are being told and more and more people are open to discovering more about life and its deeper meaning. Bookshops are filled with spiritual and self help titles all speaking the same message, all telling us that the answers lie within.
So how do we go about accessing this knowledge? How do we look within?
These are great questions and what works for one may not work for another. Meditation is frequently mentioned and yet many people are baffled by this. They struggle with meditation and give up. I too found meditation extremely difficult because of my preconcieved ideas of what it was. I was actually afraid. I was afraid of what might happen to me and afraid of what I might see. I had read so much about meditation and how you could leave your body, become more clairvoyant and so on. To be honest, the idea of any of that terrified me and I subconsciously blocked myself for a long time. In the end I found that repeating a phrase or mantra helped me. Once the fear of meditation was released it became very easy and I began to look forward to it and the journeys I would take. I loved writing my meditation experiences in my journal and reading them like stories. I also found that writing to myself helped to uncover a lot.
I began writing questions to myself. I would write the question at the top of my page and then just allow the words to flow. It was as if they were being dictated in my head. I didn’t sensor or analyse what I was writing, I just kept going until I was done. it was and still is a very powerful exercise for me and one that allows me to access my inner self. I can ask my questions and I always receive great clarity in my answers. Some of them even surprise me initially.
These are just two of the methods I have used to tap into my inner self and discover my inner wisdom. I’m sure many of you reading this will have your own methods and that is the key. Find your own method, the one that works best for you and you will discover your own inner bliss. You might have to try a lot of different things first, but always remember, if you don’t try, you will never succeed.
