Synopses & Reviews
andlt;Bandgt;HAPPINESS IS GOOD. BLISS IS BETTER.andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;We have a higher standard of living and more ways to instantaneously fulfill every desire than ever before. Then why are we unhappy? Because happiness isnand#8217;t what we really want. Happiness alone is fleeting and not deeply transformative. Bliss is a spiritual state where happiness, profound meaning, and enduring truth converge. With bliss comes an unshakable joy, a practical wisdom, and a lasting solution to our personal and planetary sufferings. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Based on a successful seminar taught by Sean Meshorer, a leading spiritual teacher and New Thought minister, andlt;Iandgt;The Bliss Experiment andlt;/Iandgt;contains dozens of stories of real people learning from everyday situations, backed by more than five hundred scientific studies. This is the one essential book that distills and unifies seemingly competing practices, philosophies, religions, and psychologies. Meshorer includes exercises that have worked time and again for people from all walks of lifeand#8212;including him. Meshorer suffers with severe chronic pain and is able to live his life to the fullest through the practices he shares here. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Bliss helps with stress, anxiety, and depression. It makes people more successful, better able to see and seize opportunities, and build or improve relationships. Give these ideas and practices twenty-eight days of dedicated attention and you will see results. You only need a moment of bliss to benefit the rest of your life. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Iandgt;The text includes links to bonus videos of Sean Meshorer expanding on the bookand#8217;s themes and demonstrating the exercises.andlt;/Iandgt;
A cross between The Power of Now and The Happiness Project, The Bliss Experiment reveals how to tap into the innate state of inner joy that resides in all of us: the state of bliss.
We all have the capacity for bliss—no matter our age, background, ethnicity, gender, or religion. External circumstances, whether positive or negative, happy or sad, do not affect it. Bliss is constant, undisturbed by outward gain or loss. In The Bliss Experiment, Sean Meshorer shows readers how we can all be happy, have meaningful lives, and reach eternal truth. After reading this book, readers will view life through a new lens. In fact, Sean is living proof of the effectiveness of his techniques. A sufferer of severe and chronic pain, he is able to live his life to the fullest through the practices he shares in The Bliss Experiment.
Based on Meshorer’s years of successful teaching, The Bliss Experiment teaches readers how to improve their happiness and spiritual awareness in just twenty-eight days—a chapter a day. Each chapter includes a true story that relates to the day’s topic, a quick tour through the science behind it, and then a deeper philosophical, religious, and spiritual investigation into it. Finally, since bliss comes primarily through activity and practice, each chapter concludes with an exercise accompanied by a Microsoft tag leading directly to a video of Meshorer demonstrating it.
