"Bliss is when every atom of your body is buzzing"... George Harrison


How often does one feel bliss?  Not happiness, not joy, feelings in themselves not to be underestimated, but bliss.  I'd say not too often.  I believe I can speak not only for myself, but most...unless, perhaps, one is the Dalai Lama or a highly evolved individual, consciously and spiritually. 

However, when I've felt bliss, it's been through music.  The following ALWAYS makes every atom of my body dance or "buzz..."

The Balalaika




The Bouzouki




The Mandolin




The Singing Bowls of Tibet
 



 
The Spanish Guitar



Over the holiday, I've been introduced to the Bouzouki to Ellhnikon: 



currently listening, and every atom of my body is still dancing...



George Harrison...it's all within...the whole of creation is perfect...
we are made of that perfect knowledge and perfect consciousness...
but we have to tap into that within and turn off your mind, relax,
and float downstream...

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (July 18, 1918-December 5, 2013)


History.com:

The South African activist and former president, Nelson Mandela helped bring an end to apartheid and had been a global advocate for human rights.

A member of the African National Congress party beginning in the 1940s, he was a leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance in a racially divided South Africa. His actions landed him in prison for nearly three decades and made him the face of the antiapartheid movement both within his country and internationally. Released in 1990, he participated in the eradication of apartheid and in 1994 became the first black president of South Africa, forming a multiethnic government to oversee the country’s transition.

Since retiring from politics in 1999, he had remained a devoted champion for peace and social justice in his own nation and around the world.

In my opinion, Nelson Mandela is one of the most important in modern history.
