  1. Shortcuts do lead to the blissful part, but it can have repercussions since it needs to get balanced.
  2. The bigger thoughts are reactive in nature, which means it's not necessary for them to exist if those reactive tendencies itself disappear due to activities such as meditation. It's similar to an eye seeing a black screen, you won't see the colours because they are not received in the first place. But subtle thoughts may be different, and difficult to notice even if they are present, I mostly believe your teacher referred to these thoughts, which are active all the time and still not being noticed.
  3. When you are in such high states of bliss, would you even get tired of life? True, I believe that's called acceptance and some call it enlightenment as well. But, for such a state to be called as enlightenment, you should be fluid in going back to higher states if you've gone deep into a lower state of consciousness once again. Free will, maybe?
  4. It's a perpetual cycle, if you desire to be free from suffering, you'll have suffering resulting from such a desire. But yes, you can desire to be free from suffering, a desire strong enough as such can stop your worries about suffering, and come into acceptance with that. You'll not volunteering chase suffering, but you wouldn't care much even if it occurs.
  5. You have touched the point that popped up in my mind. I assume what you are saying is to let the action be performed subconsciously and show no reaction or resistance to it. What could being such a passive observer lead to? Will the driver be an intuitive universe or a simple habitual subconscious mind performing same actions repeatedly, like the heart beat?
  6. I agree that there's the possibility for neutrality be the natural state. But while being mindful, I am focusing on the present, making my mind free of thoughts, which itself is a tremendous activity. Can such an activity be brought to such extremes that it results in extreme bliss? Or in other words, can mindfulness with senses active and actions present be a substitute for meditation where senses are closed and actions inactive, which results in a state of absolute bliss ( or atleast whatever the state of absolute is perceived to be) during meditation? Not interested myself in being that blissful all the times though, just curious whether it's a possibility.
  7. Yes, let's assume it's the default state of being. Then, it shouldn't be relative, it has to be absolute, which is extreme bliss. Can you maintain that in your everyday life, maybe after finding out what I'm doing wrong in my everyday life? Or could it be achieved only after closing all your thoughts and sensations? I agree that there are degrees, but can you maintain all the time something closer to the highest degree, even after getting out of meditation or awakening states? Im happy to be at scale 0 most of the time, but can the intensity of experience at the present get so high that a state close to ecstacy is always maintained in everyday life? And.also , can meditators stay in the state of bliss/ ecstasy closing their eyes all the time? Glad that you're able to overcome your difficult times!
  8. Good example, what I am trying to understand is, can you be a mindful observer even while reacting?
  9. Yes, you're right, almost all of us have the experience of feeling highly blissful during certain activities in our life. I would say listening to soul stirring music is a common activity that most people find to be blissful.
  10. Just like past events can lead to suffering, thinking about the future, especially in the forms of desires, which are mostly selfish in nature, can also lead to suffering. Complete awareness itself is a desire-free state, although the path to reach there is filled with desires. Suffering is not a word to be afraid of, in my opinion. Suffering can come in many magnitudes, and the lesser, the more blissful we can be. There's no need to be completely free from suffering.
  11. Great! Sleep is the best way to rest, I would never compromise on that unless your life is dependent upon it. Walking / exercise is also very important, as you are spending a lot of time in sedentary activities. That may be one of the reasons why physical yoga is suggested before going into deep meditative states.
  12. It doesn't matter whether you are a vegan, or a vegetarian or a non vegetarian, but it definitely matters how much selfish or selfless you are while being so.
  13. If everything exists, everything is balanced as well, so don't be afraid 🔱
  14. Mr.Sadhguru is correct in saying that pursuit of happiness, or in other words, desires, prevent you from being blissful. Can you be completely desireless in your everyday life and experience complete blissfulness all the time? That's my question. What about when having to choose between two options? What about having to lift your hand to pick up that food? Aren't they subtle forms of desires? Or am I missing something here?
