A Breath of Bliss

Have you ever experienced a momentary sense of bliss? As if you passed over a ley line, or brushed against a barrier between worlds, or something magical brushed by you – only for an instant – then moved on?

I feel such every once in a while. I felt it this evening. A brief sensation when it seems everything converges to create a sense of right-ness, right now. Always I am driving, and I get this feeling that I just passed something wholly good, and meant for me in particular. A sweet pause, that lingers, captured by inadequate memory. I have no idea what this good is. No thought or action brings it on. I have nothing with which to predict it, or attempt to reproduce it. There are no markers with which to identify the cause. It is invisible and silent and non-manifest. And, yet it gently triggers ever sense simultaneously.

I have come to recognize the ghost of a scent, a taste, a sense of pressure. And, it produces a breath of well being that is just passing by as it registers. Then it is gone, and it is so remarkable that I cannot mourn its passing.

Perhaps it is a coincidence of firing synapses and air pressure. Or a dream teasing from the sub-conscious. Or spirits playing tag.

Whatever it is, it is only for a moment. Then gone. And, I am left in bliss.

Ahum...excuse me...is this the home of the Coyote? She has been missing for quite some time and has deprived the world of her writings.

I don't know about the word Bliss but have often felt ths deep sense of awe as if something miraculous was happening and I couldnt believe I was lucky enough to witness it. One dark moonless summer night I was driving along one of those twisty rural roads in Pennsylvania with my boyfriend. You could smell the honeysuckle and the damp night air. Suddenly he slowed the car and turned off the headlights. There, twinkling in the night, were hundreds of fireflies. It was pure magic. I still feel that sense of wonder when I think about it today.
There are no fireflies here in Caifornia.....I miss them!

I know this bliss and I absolute peace and joy that washes over me and I have learned to not question and accept the gift.

When I see a beautiful sunset or walk over the top of a mountain, I feel bliss. No matter the reason, it's a good moment to experience and hold close while it lasts.
