Bliss: Conquered By Few

Happiness: "is a feeling of great contentment or pleasure."

"Wow, look at that BMW! Would I ever be happy if I had one of those!" "I wish money grew on trees!" "I'm so happy; I just won a free trip to Florida!" Do these statements sound familiar?

To prevail against the mind you have to step forth, above and beyond the plane of thinking created by society and into a different realm of thought.

If somebody took your brain, would you still have your mind? It is obvious that without a brain, all that was known would be lost. The mind is controlled entirely by the existence of the brain. "The brain is real, the mind isn't" (Millman, 1984, p.62). The mind is created by the absorption of new information and data. However, the mind isn't created until the brain takes the newly...
