The practical way of reaching “perfect bliss” in this life
Question from the Internet:
“Is it possible to reach a state of total bliss in this life?”
Yes, it is possible to achieve “total bliss” — a sense of infinite fulfillment, complete balance, and homeostasis — in this life.
But we can’t achieve it in a way that we keep stubbornly trying — stuffing ourselves with selfish pleasures, trying to fulfill ourselves at each other’s and Nature’s expense.
Our present, inherently egocentric, subjective, individualistic approach to fulfillment, “bliss” is flawed on multiple levels.
First of all, our desires work in a way, that the moment we start fulfilling our “hunger” the hunger wanes and with it the sensed pleasure, satisfaction also lessens and disappears until at the end we feel torn-off, disappointed, emptiness and we immediately start searching for the next, greater, spicier, more twisted, more intense pleasure to try to quench the growing sense of emptiness, disappointment.
Moreover, since we are but individual cells of the same, closed, living organism, our present method of fulfilling, bettering ourselves at each other’s expense makes us act like cancer. With our subjective, egocentric approach to fulfillment, we constantly cause problems in the system, and “what goes around, comes around”, in our globally integrated and fully interdependent system the so-called “butterfly effect” works with full force.
All the negative influence we introduce to the system sooner or later comes back to haunt us.
We have to completely change our approach to fulfillment, balance, and homeostasis, constantly taking the whole system, everybody in it into consideration. The way to reach absolute, infinite fulfillment, “bliss” is to build a system of mutual guarantee between individuals and nation.
In the system of mutual guarantee each and every person, nation makes calculations only for the perfect fulfillment of others while completely forgetting about themselves.
If this is developed gradually, purposefully, methodically — initially in smaller groups, environments — we can achieve the final, perfect state, where everybody receives perfectly everything they need, while each can perform their most optimal mutually contributing role, purpose towards others.
We will reach the state of perfect bliss when the whole system is in perfect bliss, as the state of the individual is intricately intertwined with the state of the whole collective. This is how Nature’s strict, unchanging and unforgiving laws determine it.
