The bliss of God is said to be continuous without any interruption. This means that God is in continuous state of joy derived from continuous enjoyment. The Veda says that God created this universe for the sake of enjoyment through entertainment. This creation contains both happiness and misery altering continuously. The creation is completely in the hand of God. If God enjoys only the happy scenes, God could have created this creation with continuous happy scenes only. Anything continuous leads to boring, which is the misery. Therefore, misery is inevitable even if the happiness is continuous. Hence, the creation contains alternating happiness and misery. Hence, the deduced concept is that God enjoys both happiness and misery and therefore, His joy is continuous.


People pray God to remove misery and give happiness. People do not know that the continuous happiness bores and becomes misery. Lack of the true knowledge in this concept is the only reason for such prayers. This is the path of majority. The path of the so called scholars is Yoga, which means the path of forced neutrality in happiness and misery. If you say that the equality of neutrality in both happiness and misery is Yoga, which is the state of God, it is wrong. God need not create happiness and misery and try to be neutral in both without enjoying anything. In such case, God could have created only the neutral scenes continuously without happiness and misery. In such continuous neutral scenes, God can be neutral without any effort. Unnecessary effort is required to be neutral in happy and miserable scenes. For the soul, the creation is not in its hand. Hence, the soul has to put the effort to be neutral in both misery and happiness. But, in the case of God, He

God arranged the fruits of good and bad deeds in alternating manner even though good or bad deeds are done in a long sequence. This reshuffled arrangement of happiness and misery resembles the sweet and hot dishes in the meals and also resembles to a cinema containing both scenes of happiness and tragedy in alternating manner. Such system of alternating arrangement gives continuous entertainment not only to God but also to the individual soul. Thus, the basic intention of the God is only to entertain Himself and also all the individual souls. Anything, either happiness or misery bores, if it is continuous. Boring itself is misery.

If you have compelled God to give happiness continuously though your prayers and worship, God will drag the happiness from the future cycle as a premature fixed deposit with reduced interest and hands it over to you. He will not give happiness to you if there is no balance of good deeds. As the impartial judge, He will not give happiness to you if there is no good deed in your list. Therefore, asking God for continuous happiness is the most foolish solution because it bores giving misery to you at the expense of good deeds. You are purchasing the misery with your hard earned cash! Moreover, when all the good deeds are exhausted, you will have the continuous misery only in all your future births. Therefore, praying God to solve a problem is the most foolish path of ignorance.


Such happiness attained is temporary. Hence, the permanent solution is only to learn to enjoy both good and bad results and attain continuous happiness without boring and this is the real bliss. Bliss is the state of God, who is entertained with this world having alternating scenes of happiness and misery. You have already learnt to be happy by enjoying the happiness. Now through the spiritual knowledge and continuous practice, you learn to enjoy the misery also in equal way. Now, your enjoyment becomes continuous without boring due to absence of single phase (happiness or misery) and you have attained the state of God which is possible though effort. Now you can say that you are God because the maximum possible state of God is achieved (Matbhavamagatah..Gita). Creation, Rule and Destruction of this world are impossible for any individual soul though any effort and hence these three capabilities are irrelevant to the spiritual effort. If you attain the aim, which is possible for attainment, it is certainly the full success and you can claim that you are God in the total sense of the possible achievement.

Mis-reading : "God hates sweeping" …

Need to clean up here a bit …

Thank heaven for cut and paste. It makes rant spamming easier across multiple disinterested forums. Also can we coin a term for rant spamming, i think ramming has certain connotations when used on the internet so therfore I prepose "spanting". Please use it and help this word to grow.

It's been noted. Corwin will address this bit of spanting when there's sunlight in Australia, if one of the Almighties doesn't swing by first.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Yes and no, Pladio. As the main spam killers, Corwin and I tend to be quite flexible with the content of user posts. The site ownership wants to keep moderation of content to an absolute minimum, so we try our best to reflect that policy. OTOH, we're downright vicious with spam links. We keep a close eye on new registrations for links in their posts and links tucked into their profiles. That sort of nonsense gets an immediate ban and any posts get wiped.

Admittedly, the powers-that-be are a little "on the fence" with this particular joker.

Myrthos, in particular among the powers-that-be, favors moderation as a last resort. Very much so. To wipe out this guy runs contrary to that strongly-held philosophy, but our recurring friend is such a pointless pain that there might be an exception made.
