    The first word that pops in my head is happiness. I just used this word the other day. My brother-in-law sent a picture of food cooking on their new stove. I told my sister he is still experiencing wedding bliss.

    A state of being at peace with yourself. A state where the chaos outside doesn't have an affect on the calm within. That is bliss.

    bliss is getting a favorable response from a reader of your article. Bliss is having a friend in Tennessee for 10 yrs that you've never seen in person and they still like you after all this time.
    Bliss is feeling vibrantly alive and suddenly noticing you feel this way. Bliss is when your daughter says she will be glad to pay your taxes.
    Bliss is when your neighbor makes a sexist comment and then apologizes the next day without your having to ask him to.
    Bliss is when your kitty rolls in the dirt in front of you and sideballs you to see if you're watching.

    True bliss is transcendental, without any attachment whatsoever...

    Today I will give you the answer from my most Beloved God-Emissary Teacher. It comes from a talk on Bliss, and you will find the rest here.http://www.yogaofsrichinmoy.com/the-higher-worlds/blisss/

    "Bliss is the creation of life and bliss is the life of creation. The creation of life is the Silence-God. The life of creation is the Sound-God....

    Real bliss is self-giving without any expectation. We have to give what we have and what we are, freely, soulfully and devotedly, to God. What we have is sincere aspiration and what we are is a sea of ignorance. If we can give to God unconditionally what we have and what we are, then God also will give us what He has and what He is. What He has is Love, and what He is is Bliss. When we give our little possessions cheerfully, devotedly and unconditionally, He gives us His infinite possessions: His infinite Bliss and His Transcendental, Universal Reality. 

    The Christ said, “Let Thy Will be done.” This is the highest form of prayer. Only in this kind of selfless prayer can we get supreme Bliss. 
    -Sri Chinmoy.

    I will say further that it is an inner or higher state of Consciousness, and it is experienced in the Joy of Spirit. Om Shanti!

      I thank you, Grace, especially as much of what I have said came from a Seer who experienced God and was one of the most respected spiritual teachers of his age. Sri Chinmoy was a man who lived in God. I trust that you have read the link also. Peace.

    "Bliss" is a word that can be used in many different contexts. Basically I would say its a word that means some form of happiness or good feeling. To go into a state of mind or no-mind (if you will) beyond the duality of words, I would call "empty bliss" and for me this is a beautiful description of the word "bliss". To combine the word "bliss" with the word "god" borders on this beautiful feeling of non-dual or empty bliss. I would say that both of these words are describing something that lies beyond description itself. So they actually mean what ever you think or want them to mean. But, aren't all words this way? Is all of life this way too?

      yes! Randy, yes, all of life is this way too. beauty and bliss are found in the eye of the beholder.
