I just caught myself in the middle of an everyday action that supplied a vital missing piece for me.
Only half of what happened is connected to the information I learned (intellectual knowledge). Half is connected to the fact that it was realized (realized knowledge). For me, realized knowledge has more vigor and strength than intellectual knowledge.
I had a thought (I forget what it was) and it raised the feeling of bliss in me.
Well, but that’s the problem. That statement (it raised the feeling of bliss in me) is not true. That’s the way we speak about things and it obscures the truth.
What’s true is that I watched myself raise the feeling of bliss in me. The way I phrased it before leaves out the fact that I will bliss to come up in me. Because the action of the will happens so very subtly, we … I … tend to overlook it. But it’s essential to realize that we call up our own bliss.
I began experimenting and confirmed that I am the one who raises the feeling in me. I summon it and it comes.
This may represent an upgrade in our abilities to have command over things like this. Or it may be something that was always there that I didn’t see. I don’t know.
But the fact that I summon up my own bliss is a revolutionary discovery for me.
I didn’t need to repeat the experiment with love because I already know I summon up love from my heart. That was the original exercise that contributed to my heart opening, March 13, 2015.
What followed from the first realization was a second: If I am not experiencing love and bliss, then chances are I’m not calling them up from my heart. I’m dropping out on that vital piece of the puzzle. If I don’t experience love and bliss, that’s why.
What I’m saying here fits with what the Company of Heaven has been telling us, that we don’t realize who we are and what our capabilities are. This experience was one of realizing a capability I either didn’t know I had or else newly discovered.
Whichever is the case, I’ll take responsibility for running the process.
I’ll begin calling love and bliss up from my heart … or wherever else they may come from … and into my field of experience.
I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off after Christmas.
