DISCOURSES & TALKS BY MEHER BABA

 

BLISS

 

 Baba discoursed about different states of bliss:

 

If the bliss of the God-realized soul is compared to a human body, then the enjoyment of yogis is like the shadow of that body; and the pleasure which a worldly man enjoys is like seeing the shadow in a reflection in a pool of water. Thus ordinary people cannot even imagine what real bliss is!

 

The majzoobs have mind and body, but no intellect and ego, so they enjoy Supreme Bliss completely. In yogis, besides the mind and body, there are intellect and ego so they do not enjoy perfect bliss.

 

That is why I say that ordinary men have not the foggiest idea what bliss really is. They cannot imagine it.
