The famous author, Joseph Campbell, who wrote The Power of Myth said one of the things we humans desire is to find our bliss--just what is your deinition of bliss--what makes you feel content, what are you yearning for? For me it's sometimes the most silly simple things--being a photographer who primarily photsgraphs nature/scenic type photos I just love being around nature's beauty--it fills my very soul and I feel alive. Or maybe it's when I've accomplished one more step in fulfilling my goals and dreams. So what is your definition of bliss and fills and feeds your soul?

Literally, bliss means supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment. Applying that to my life, bliss may define my good relationship with my parents and friends. It may also be my long term love affair with my girlfriend. People around me never fail to bring me a blissful life. They inspire and motivate me all the time. On the other hand, bliss could also mean the things that satisfy me. For one, I love to eat any kinds of food. It also brought me happiness and zeal. Bliss could mean my hobbies that I enjoy doing. I like being with nature, listening to music, playing billiards, etc. Besides, being one with God is also a meaning of bliss for me. He who made me whole touches my spirit once in a while. My love for Him will stay forever. It's all because I'm always happy with his endearing presence.Being blissful doesn't only mean some physical thingy, it comes from within you.
