Bliss is a By-Product | August 5, 2014
There may be bliss with awakening, because it is actually a by-product of awakening, but it is not awakening itself. As long as we are chasing the byproducts of awakening, we will miss the real thing.
- Adyashanti, "Bliss is a By-Product"
“Identifying the negative aspects of the personality is like opening up a window to brighten a dark room. When you open it, the darkness disappears, but you see that the room is dirty. The light comes in to illuminate your perception, but it’s not enough to remove all of the impurities. If the floor is very dirty, then it might have to be cleaned several times. You keep cleaning until it is very clean. The same thing happens with the heart.”
Sri Prem Baba
