Bliss is defined as ‘ecstatic joy’, ‘serene happiness’, and ‘the ecstasy of salvation’.  Bliss is often connected to enlightened states of being.  What can be a challenge to our quest for sustaining bliss is a belief  that once enlightenment is achieved it becomes a permanent state.  Yet what we discover is that bliss and enlightenment are not constants.  Like the ebb and flow of the tides and the cycles and seasons of time, they come and go.  Bliss and enlightenment are states of being; and like a successful, rigorous scientific experiment, they are repeatable.
