We don’t have to follow our bliss, because in reality bliss follows us!
Every aspect of our existence is permeated by bliss. However, out of habit, we misunderstand the very essence of who we really are. We are distracted by mind’s projections instead of resting in mind’s nature. True Bliss isn’t an experience, experiences come and go. But authentic bliss is always available. This bliss (called Mahasukha in Sanskrit or Dewa Chenpo in Tibetan) transcends circumstances and conditions; it is the indestructible nature of our being.
First we need to come to see how to transform our ordinary way of relating to ourselves and our world; we can begin to See Bliss as the nature of experience. Then, rather than chasing after bliss, we can learn to Be Bliss. In other words, we can uncover the superpower we already possess: blissful awareness.
