I want to reflect on today’s quote from Mother Teresa, the great Catholic Nun who devoted herself to helping the impoverished in India. When you make people happy by either giving, helping them get well, like mother Teresa did, or in your own special way. They in turn love or appreciate you for giving them happiness, perhaps in the form of wellness or simply company. Hence, in gratefulness, they are willing to give back.
When we are happy we are delighted to use all, we have to serve the world. Nothing is as rich as connecting to our bliss. Bliss is an all-encompassing state that we have access to always.
Day 19 – Blissful Me
“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.” ― Mother Teresa
Joy is my highest purpose.
Sat Chit Ananda (Existence, consciousness, bliss.)
Message of the Day
In today’s meditation, we spend time reconnecting with our true bliss, that part of ourselves that many of us best remember from childhood. Think about what it was that brought you the greatest joy, that made time fly, and that you could do forever without a care in the world. That is an expression of bliss.
While our childhoods may be behind us, our opportunity to reconnect with our bliss is right in front of us, ours for the taking. When we find ourselves engaged in the activities and with the people who make our hearts sing, we are grounded in the present and deeply connected to pure spirit.
Reflect in Journal Questions:
- We are each unique and experience the world in our own way. Take time to write about what bliss looks and feels like to you. Describe a time in your life when you felt bliss.
- How can you cultivate bliss in your life today?
- What are you grateful for today?
- Reflect further on your experience today.
