follow your bliss
quote on label:
Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Wikipedia defines bliss as "a state of profound spiritual satisfaction, happiness or joy." For me, bliss is not something I can manufacture, force or am in control of. Bliss is a sensation deep within that I experience when I am aligned with the Holy. Bliss is God's finger beckoning, "This way, this way..."
As a living human being with human foibles, a human brain and human relationships, it's impossible to live in a state of bliss 24/7. I don't advocate even trying, as it's a surefire setup for disappointment and possibly berating yourself for not being spiritual / perfect / whatever enough.
What I do advocate, and what this candle is truly for, is to let yourself follow the whispers of your heart~that which brings you profound spiritual satisfaction, happiness or joy~and for the willingness to continuing to venture wherever that may lead you.
