Things It Takes Most Of Us 50 years to learn

Things It Takes Most Of Us 50 years to learn:

1. The badness of a movie is directly proportional to the number of helicopters in it.

2. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight-saving time.

3. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

4. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

5. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is: age 11.

6. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

7. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

8. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

9. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

10. If there really is a God who created the entire universe with all of its glories, and he decides to deliver a message to humanity, he will NOT use as his messenger a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle or in some cases, really bad make-up too.

11. You should not confuse your career with your life.

12. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter/janitor, is not a nice person.

13. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

14. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy.

15. Your true friends love you, anyway.

16. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
"Follow your bliss,” goes the quote. Ancient authors have held this to be one of the keys to wealth, health, happiness, and general success. Modern self-help guru's have also begun championing this phrase.

Why is this key, what are the downfalls to doing so? Theoretically, none – but if you don't know the theory, you can get into some pretty wild scenarios which aren't under your control.

Most people, however they try to remain in control are very much on automatic. The control they have in their lives is mostly through subscribing to other's opinions and concepts. Our habits are those we've chosen partially due to heredity, but a lot are due to our own learning. And the learning we've done is from those people we have experienced in our lives. Books, schools, colleges – these teach only the mundane, regular theories which have served us for centuries. The wildest concept to break through since Christ has been that of the free market and related concepts such as a written constitution, which guarantees free speech and all the peripherals needed to having an open market.

However, most of the lies are still out there. Economics is based on a huge one, which is usually explained in the first few paragraphs of any basic text – that there is not enough to go around. Unfortunately, this was disproved many, many years ago. Buckminster Fuller pointed out in the 60's and 70's how mankind had been able to feed the entire world since WWII. Our only problem has been in distribution. (And more recently, Wal-Mart has seemed to have solved that...)

Practically, natural laws described by nearly all religions and known by successful people throughout history have long held that there is enough of everything to go around, not just food. This is due to the simple concept and Law of Attraction – which is based on the simple datum that “thought becomes things.” Whatever you think is what occurs in the world around you. If you are happy, you attract happy circumstances. Get critical and you will find yourself being criticized. This is, of course, the Golden Rule. But not because someone has told you to treat others like you would like to be treated, but more that however you treat people around you is exactly how you are going to be treated – whether you know of that rule or not.

Before you treat others around you any differently, you should know one thing: you have to treat yourself like you would like to be treated. This is prior to even treating anyone else in any fashion at all. If you are constantly critical of yourself, you will get critical manifestations in the world around you. If you are loving and cheerful, even supportive of your own efforts, you will then get happy things happening around you. William James, Norman Vincent Peale, Plato, Aristotle – all these knew that a person could change their attitudes at will. You can think of cheerful things, or just start laughing, and you will soon cheer up. By changing your own attitude, you can then attract whatever you want.

You then get closer to following your bliss. Bliss is very close, almost synonymous with your own personal purpose in life. Wayne Dyer very simply states that you find your purpose by letting it find you. Look around and find what makes you feel good. What do you like to do and what activities bring you real satisfaction? Start keeping track of these and doing more of these. Eventually, you will see a pattern to what is making you happy and constantly feeling good. This is what you should be doing. You might be able to put a name on it and describe it – maybe not.

What you are finding is your bliss. You are finding what is sublime in your life, what brings you peace, what makes your serene.

If all your thoughts were serene, were happy, were confident – then you would attract things in your life which bring you serenity, happiness, confidence and security. Fear will drop away and courage will build, as you build your faith in yourself and what you can and do create by changing what you are being.

Bliss, follow your bliss.

Try it for yourself – make yourself cheerful, as Earl Nightingale long ago prescribed, for 30 days and go about doing things for people far beyond what you are expected to do. Do things which you expect no returns for. Simply do good deeds every chance you get – for family, friends, total strangers. Be unreasonably cheerful in everything you do and hold this as a constant way of life. What will happen after 30 days is that you have now just developed a new pattern, a new chronic habit for yourself. You can support this by picking up self-help tapes and books which talk about this subject. Earl Nightingale's “The Strangest Secret” is one, while the DVD “The Secret” is another. Wallace Wattle's Science of Getting Rich, or Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich both have intense methodologies for changing your world around. Read them during this 30-day period, and/or listen to such tapes or DVD's daily, over and over. You will reinforce your bliss and refine it. And you will have a very different take on life.

You can have an incredible world around you, full of magic, miracles, and habitual success in all you attempt.

But you have to follow your bliss. You will then find the world around you assisting you in following that bliss. The more blissful you make yourself, the more the universe backs you up.

And tell others why you are “so damned happy all the time” when they ask. Encourage others to find and follow their own bliss.

Eventually, you will make islands of sanity and calm around you. Those islands can become the sea, and eventually take over the whole she-bang.

But it starts with you and your bliss.

When you think of BLISS, what other words come to mind?
Is the word BLISS unfamiliar?

What about;
Peace, ecstasy, heaven, paradise, enjoyment, happiness,
delight, pleasure, harmony or serenity?

Are any of these words better for you?

OK, use whatever word works best,
the principle is still the same.

I like BLISS because it is such a magical and mysterious word.

Living a life of BLISS has a powerful connotation,
something wonderfully mystical and spiritual.

BLISS is a word that people are not accustomed to hearing.

BLISS is a potent word, a word that means LOVE.

When we have BLISS we have a life of Love.

Embrace your BLISS.

Follow Your Bliss

Follow your bliss, that phrase seems to be a directive, but how does one follow one's bliss?

Following one's bliss is about setting aside the ego self, and awakening to the Divine. "Follow Your Bliss" is discovering what authentic bliss is. Authentic bliss is not momentary or monetary. Authentic bliss makes no demands of anyone. Authentic bliss does not require fame or fortune. It is a gift that resides in each of us; and it is available in every moment. In the simplest of terms, bliss arises when your "ego" departs. Authentic bliss arises when one is in harmony with "what is." Authentic bliss arises when cravings and attachments have departed. Authentic bliss arises out of your passion for life and living.

The more you are passionately fervent about things that speak strongly to you, the more you might notice that you can use your zeal to affect positive change in the world. You might want to get involved in a cause or organization that is aligned with your interests and apply your energy toward bettering the life of someone else. Melding your desires with an activist spirit could motivate you to improve your community and it might also bring you closer to that part of yourself which is able to connect with the Divine and unconditionally care for others.

Don't ask so much what the world needs. Go out and do what makes you come alive, because what the world needs most are people who have come alive. Howard Thurman

Engaging in activities which draw from your passion gives you the strength, courage, and enthusiasm to change your life and the life of others in a positive way. When you feel deeply about a topic or issue, it will be easy for you to carry it forward. If you integrate your passion into compassionate acts, however, you show your ideas and beliefs to others by the examples you set, and not merely by the ideas you dream about. By using your passion, you will demonstrate the depth and profundity of your ideas as well as improve the lives of those around you.
