Ecstasy, Bliss, Purpose!

As one reaches bliss, it becomes very difficult to conceal that state of intense ecstasy. There is a common desire at this point in time to share this state with others and to use it for benefiting all. This is the stage where you smile incessantly. Where you rise above the trivial dealings of the world and observe everything unattached. This feeling remains but only for a few moments. But these moments are so blissful, that purpose of an entire life can be dedicated to experiencing such a moment. 
I sought to be ordinary, because being ordinary in and of itself is an expression of divinity.

Just be

Individuality of a person is only an illusion and it is only this that leads to suffering or for that matter, happiness. But, as you become one with the universe, complete and at one with all that is, you realize, there is nothing beyond being 'just being'. And it is in this state through which Nature/God truly expresses itself which we come to identify as Soul. While just being, you start living in the present. It is silent and conveys a state of peace. It is here when you do not carry with you any burden from the past or any expectation for the future. It is infinitely gentle, flexible as water and yet like a rock. With it, all fear disappears, and spiritual joy occurs on quiet level of inexplicable ecstasy.

Commentary on Krishna

As I looked into each one, my self shone forth from their eyes. I wondered, how did I get into all these bodies?
