Today our world is facing increasing hostility, hatred, and enmity among individuals, communities, nations, and races. Politicians have tried to bring about a transformation of such selfish behavior of human beings through laws, but to no avail.
Celebrate the New Year 2022!
I wish you a blissful New Year in 2022. Bliss is not synonymous with happiness. The two sides of the same coin are happiness and unhappiness. Everyone wants to be happy, but everyone knows that happiness is followed by unhappiness.
Beyond happiness, there is bliss, which is of the spirit. Pleasure comes from the body, happiness from the mind, and bliss from the spirit within.
Happiness comes, and one watches it rather than identifying with it. And then comes unhappiness, and one watches it without becoming identified with it either. By watching both, you feel the realm of bliss.
We already have bliss, but we are unaware of it. Where does this bliss come from? It comes from your being. Bliss is not something that can be attained; rather, it is something that can only be discovered and experienced by going inside.
Bliss has no polar opposite. It is quiet, serene. It is ecstasy without excitement. To be blissful means to have returned to one’s natural state: serene, calm, and quiet.
Have a BLISSFUL New Year!
Shiv R. Jhawar

“It is extremely rare to find such a wealth of knowledge in one small book. The book, Building a Noble World, is more like a “capsule” — reading one small, easy to understand handbook instead of reading fifty complex books.” — Harish S Jhaveri, MD, Galveston, TX, USA
