If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up
Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution
Every person is a God in embryo. Its only desire is to be born

It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there -
buried under the 50,000 thoughts
the average person thinks every day
Human beings are made of body, mind and spirit.
Of these, spirit is primary,
for it connects us to the source of everything,
the eternal field of consciousness.
Pay attention to that unchanging part of yourself.
It is perfect.
At the source of life, and only there,
one finds peace, harmony,
and the undisturbed contentment of bliss
Each of us is here to discover our true Self,,,
that essentially we are spiritual beings
who have taken manifestation in physical form,,,
that we're not human beings that have occasional spiritual experiences,,,

As you embrace the present
and become one with it, and merge with it,
you will experience a fire, a glow,
a sparkle of ecstasy throbbing in every sentient being.
As you begin to experience this exultation of spirit
in everything that is alive, as you become intimate with it,
joy will be born within you,
and you will drop the terrible burdens of defensiveness,
resentment, and hurtfulness...
then you will become lighthearted, carefree, joyous, and free
When the human organism
is discharging its negative experience efficiently,
the mind is empty of past or future concerns;
there is no worry, anticipation, or regret.

In ecstasy you know yourself as cosmic ego,
unbounded in time and space
Joy is a return to the deep harmony of body, mind, and spirit
that was yours at birth and that can be yours again.
That openness to love, that capacity for wholeness
with the world around you, is still within you
The first spiritual law of success
is the law of pure potentiality.
This law is based on the fact that we are, in our essential state,
Pure consciousness is pure potentiality;
it is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity.
Pure consciousness is our spiritual essence.
Being infinite and unbounded, it is also pure joy.
Other attributes of consciousness are
pure knowledge, infinite silence, perfect balance, invincibility,
simplicity, and bliss.
This is our essential nature.
Our essential nature is one of pure potentiality
Losing touch with spirit
does nothing to the field of creativity, which is beyond harm;
but it can do much to damage a person's chance in life
With spirit we are all children of the cosmos;
Without it we are orphaned and adrift
Success in life could be defined as the continued expansion of happiness
and the progressive realization of worthy goals.
Success is the ability to fulfill your desires with effortless ease.
And yet success, including the creation of wealth,
has always been considered to be a process that requires hard work
and it is often considered to be at the expense of others.
We need a more spiritual approach to success and to affluence
which is the abundant flow of all good things to you
In our imaginations we believe that love is apart from us.
Actually there is nothing but love, once we are ready to accept it.
When you truly find love, you find yourself
If we share with caring, lightheartedness, and love,
we will create abundance and joy for each other.
And then this moment will have been worthwhile
