The finale of our, or for that reason all the sentient beings’ restlessness, aspirations and ultimate seeking, through virtuous or unscrupulous acts is aimed at gaining happiness and contentment. We want to be happy, finally, and we do not want the happiness of temporal nature or partial in magnitude. We want absolute happiness and peace, so it is termed as ‘Absolute Bliss’, because ‘happiness’ is a term of duality; ‘misery or unhappiness’ being the opposite expression. Bliss is the culmination of all our struggle with the life; with the world or with the universe, whatever we call it. Our innermost being is also seeking God as a matter of spiritual pursuit and substantially, these two apparently opposite quests are not different in nature. The ‘ouside-ness’ and the ‘within-ness’ have been created because of the body-consciousness. Therefore, the Bliss that we are aspiring to attain and the notion of God are the same thing and identical. Our great Masters of yore have always reiterated that God may be sought through spiritual path and the outside world is a delusion or false impression of fractional happiness. Fragmentary happiness is always followed by the sorrow and misery. These great Masters were not only teachers or preachers of humankind, but they themselves, at some point or the other, had been the seekers of Truth and they upheld that God is Bliss and It is the final answer to all the evolutionary process, incessant movement through the pauses of transient pleasure and pain. But the mankind chose to suffer because the simple way of self-restraint appeared arduous and against the turbulent temperament of a person. Yet, we have reason to believe in the deep recess of heart that we are in search of such peace and happiness that should be the conclusion of all searches, Supreme, Infinite and Absolute. Who is seeking this Bliss? It is the consciousness itself which is the silent witness of all the experiences that we undergo in the phenomenal world. So, there is an ‘existence’, which is not stony but ‘conscious’, that aspires to regain ‘bliss’. No any other reason may be attributed to the growth we experience in our day to day struggle of life either physically, mentally, psychologically or spiritually. Sometimes we endorse ‘love’ as being the ultimate substance of our existence. Of course, love as a glorious and majestic spring-board for the final leap into the ‘Unknown’ is imperative, but again the question arises whether love is the means or an end! The ultimate end of love is also to attain the Bliss. A common mind could not have comprehended the concept of higher abstraction other than love. Why should we love! Love has ultimately, to transcend and rise to a Higher Consciousness of Being. The ‘Absolute’ is inclusive of all the values, meanings and knowledge that is revealed in the preceding states and all these, finally, get transmuted into the highest state of Being, to address Oneness, Unity. Supreme Reality is not existence minus consciousness, and it is also not existence-consciousness minus happiness. Here, these three predicaments of limitation are ruled out. It is not temporal, located existence; it is all-existence. It is not unconscious existence but conscious existence. It is not merely conscious minus the sense of completeness, freedom, happiness, but it is that, also. So, it is Existence-Consciousness-Bliss, not Existence ‘and’ Consciousness ‘and’ Bliss. No ‘and’ is possible there, no conjunction. It is Existence which is itself Consciousness and therefore Bliss. ..................Om Shanti!
