Bliss That Isn’t Blissful
Winston: James, I got your book How to Attain Enlightenment. I have to say THANK YOU! When you say “knowledge” is what you need, you are absolutely right. I was one who had many epiphanies, ecstasies, as many on the path do have. And I, like many, thought that was enlightenment. And when it went, oh, how painful because the pure meaningfulness of the experience was so precious it felt like a great loss. Your simple explanation of understanding the experience, a right interpretation, solved it for me. My experience from reading your work is clarity, clarity, clarity. Thank you so much. Feeling clear, with or without bliss, is knowing.
I also watched some of the videos of Swami Dayananda Saraswati. Excellent!
It’s funny, but I seem to have lost all my questions. Not that I can’t do with some refinements, but any pressing need, like I don’t understand, seems to have gone. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

PS: I live in Kansas City, Missouri, very close to Unity Worldwide headquarters. They often have speakers like Eckart Tolle, David Hawkins, etc. If you are ever coming to the Midwest and need someone to make some contacts, just let me know.
James: Hi, Winston. I am so happy that the book is making things clear, particularly the experience/knowledge confusion. Your statement “feeling clear, with or without bliss, is knowing” is great. It shows you have understood the essence. Bliss is fine, but the absence of bliss is also fine because you are the bliss that isn’t blissful. It’s also great that you seem to have lost all your questions. If they come back, it is not the kiss of death. Keep reading the book and if you hit a snag, write to me. Thanks for the offer to make contacts in Kansas City. Since the publication of the book my life has taken on a life of its own and stranger things have happened than a visit to Kansas City. Are there many people there into non-duality?
~ All the best, James
