When you have experienced in relationship with anyone or anything a moment of bliss, a moment of a peace that forever passes all understanding, a moment of fulfillment so sweet and so sublime that no word could touch it, much less express it, what you have experienced is on the flow of the Love of God through you. (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 6, Page 75)
God is living through us, and so when we experience this bliss, of the Love of God flowing through us, He is actually acting, in Love. This is the way that we are meant to live, conscious of Love, conscious of God. The external has not caused this bliss; it is all internal. So we don’t have to think that we “need” the person who seems to be the instigator of our sense of Love. God is our sense of Love. The external person has just been the catalyst.
This sense of Love streaming through us will not only be bliss, it will be an example of the peace that passeth understanding. And we will feel fulfilled in that moment of bliss and peace. Our dissatisfactions with life will seem far away and very insignificant. We are at home in God in such moments.
These moments won’t last, at least not at the same sublime feeling. We have momentarily stepped out of our illusion and out of our dramas. But when we return to what we think of as everyday life, we will remember what we experienced. We will want this experience again. And we can have it. This has been a glimpse of Christ-consciousness, of enlightenment, of Awakening, and our road ahead will be easier—for we know what is possible.
We may not always live at such heights of bliss, but knowing what is possible will act as hope for us.
