Bliss or Happiness?
December 20, 2017
 Eric msg 1 
       message 2017 Christmas       
The saying goes something like this:
 
If you want to be happy for an hour,
have a nice meal.
IF you w
ant to be happy for a month,
buy a new car.
If you want to be happy for a year,
win the lottery.
(Good luck with that!)
 
Bliss is another thing entirely.
To be in conscious union with the Source
is to operate in a state of utter freedom
from human delusions and self-created sorrow.
 
Those who know that Spirit is all there is
never drag around a bag of old sorrows and resentments,
or worry themselves sick about this or that.
They see the face of God in everyone and everything.
 
Living in a perfect now moment,
they pour forth love and good will to all.
They don’t need anything to be happy.
 
Take comfort in where you are headed on the spiritual path.
When you attain the ultimate Goal of life,
no special conditions are required
to live in the Bliss of Being.
