I will do my very best to explain this some more.
Like Secretan, I believe we can create our most magnificent lives. In creating our lives, creating our cirumstances, this is where we can truly create our own bliss. Be an active builder of our own PERSONALIZED bliss instead of taking a prepackaged idea of bliss from someone else and sort of claiming it as our own.
Last night, I could not sleep, (highly unusual for me!) so I took out my well worn copy of Napolean Hill's "Think and Grow Rich". In Chapter 1, Hill writes about Edwin C. Barnes who wanted to partner with Thomas A. Edison. Mr. Barnes was not sure HOW to partner with Edison, so he went about his business, at first working for the famed inventor.
An opportunity in disguise came forth, which Mr. Barnes used to create his bliss. He took the "unsuccessful" Edison Dictating Machine (the salesmen could not move the product) and sold it so successfully he got a national distributorship. He also got riches as a bi-product of creating his bliss.
Does that help to explain it better?
