The paradox of spontaneity and bliss

Halloween candy
Yesterday. Marketers are very intentional with color, timing, placement, etc. The harsh reality, they are selling sugar and corn syrup.


When everything we do becomes intentional we have arrived at a place of bliss.

Critics will ask, “What about spontaneity?”

The paradox with spontaneity is the harsh reality that it requires planning to be blissful.

If we intentionally manage our time, our joy, and our gratitude, freedom is literally in every breath we take. As is spontaneity.

Our other fail safe option is to indulge in mind altering, often addicting, substances/habits. Otherwise known as empty bliss.

The way to bliss is through freedom

The bliss from not needing much and being ready for the next step in life


Overcoming our greatest fear provides an almost incomprehensible beauty that we would have never seen otherwise.

And to conquer every fear, including the greatest – our fear of death – is bliss.

And bliss is freedom.

And joy.

Beyond Happiness?

It’s good to be just plain happy; it’s a little better to know that you are happy; but to understand that you’re happy and to know why and how……well that is beyond happiness. That is bliss“. — Henry Miller (1891-1980)

Don’t worry, be happy, and carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
