In this article, we will review in detail how a potential rift in the chain of causal relationships that form personal reality because of a shift in blissful awareness can also cause a shift to the human living experience and the way an individual thinks, feels, acts, reacts, behaves, or interacts with his internal-external environment by aligning his belief system that contributes to the gradual development of personality in order to create and at the same time adapt to a new personal reality.

The Causal Relationship Cycle
The causal relationship cycle refers to the distinct relationship, causality, or causation as an actual solution between the actual root cause of a struggle, problem, or risk that under certain conditions or circumstances gives rise to the actuality that is the actual effect or result of the solution of the problem or risk at hand.
In a previous article, we reviewed in detail the creation and existence of causal relationships between variables such as facts from the past as strong character traits or abilities that affect future behaviors as events, effects, or response-abilities as conditions of measurement of the sizes of these relationships.
The chain of causal relationships forms energetic ties between character traits and the subsequent behaviors as energetic links that once formed can never break and extend from one energetic link to another. Space as a cause, time as an effect, and timing as their causal-effect relationship.
This is an ongoing process forming the present as the causal relationship cycle or causal-effect continuum gaining momentum and experienced as an actual reality. In fact, momentum reflects the force that a moving human body has because of its weight and motion drawn to the appropriate circumstances by adjusting the facts or the ways something happens and by altering the actual solution that is the specific details of an event.
What is Happiness?
Happiness is defined as a mental state as well as a psychological factor. Happiness is when one’s wishes, expectations, or desires are attained or achieved. It is about how you express your inner environment that contributes to the development of personality, the maintenance of health and well-being, and the etiology of mental characteristics and character disorders. It can be defined as an instant experience that is enjoyable, feels extremely nice. The only bad thing is that it goes away as time goes on.
The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle made a distinction between two different kinds of happiness: hedonie (ηδονή) and eudaimonia (ευδαιμονία). Hedonie: Hedonic happiness is derived from pleasure. Eudaimonia: This type of happiness is derived from seeking virtue and meaning. Hedonie and eudemonia are more commonly known today in psychology as pleasure and meaning, respectively.
What is virtue ethics by Aristotle and other ancient Greeks? It is the quest to understand and live a life of a moral character by practicing being honest, brave, just, generous, and so on, for a person to develop an honorable and moral character.
What do human needs mean? Human needs are commonly used to refer to the drivers of human actions and to the motives behind human behavior. They also refer to the elements that contribute to the achievement of the goal of a satisfying life (such as good jobs, income, health care, status) as requirements or needs for the realization of the goal, including fears of failure.
Why do people have desires? Desire is an inherent part of human life. Desire is closely linked to pleasure (hedonie) and pain or fear of pain. We take pleasure in things that, in the course of evolution, tend to promote the survival and reproduction of our species and pain in those that do not. Things like health, wealth, comfort, good relationships, success, good offspring, and fame are designed to be enjoyable and therefore desirable.
Some types of happiness such as personal happiness include an individual’s direct assessment of their own worth, skills, or abilities, which encompasses beliefs (truths) about one’s real or authentic self towards the attainment or achievement of emotional or psychological factors (desires) such as self-esteem, self-assurance, self-confidence, self-love, and self-trust (eudaimonia as a virtue).
What is satisfaction?
Satisfaction is a pleasant or positive feeling or state of mind. Satisfaction is when a need is fulfilled and the feeling gained from such fulfillment. It is a state of inner contentment. It has to do with how you perceive your external environment that contributes to the development of personality, the maintenance of health and well-being, and the impact of mental and behavioral disorders.
It is also the feeling that you get when you spend your days doing things that are important to you or mean something to you. Your dopamine levels are high at that moment.
Some types of satisfaction are the personal satisfaction that includes an individual’s honest evaluation of their own capabilities that encompasses satisfaction of one’s fulfillment of their basic living requirements in regards to their own values such as self-empowerment, self-enabling, self-emancipation, self-sufficiency, self-mastery, and self-validation (eudaimonia as a meaning).
What is Bliss?
Bliss is a state of mind when both your desires and needs are met. To reach a state of perfect happiness. Ignoring anything else. Supreme happiness. Absolute joy or satisfaction. An earthly paradise. The path to eternal bliss. The supreme essence of happiness. Supreme happiness. Absolute joy or satisfaction.
What is an example of bliss? A definition of bliss is absolute happiness. An example of bliss is what one feels after a relaxing massage. An example of bliss is the act of doing the job you love. Extreme happiness. Ecstasy. Perfect happiness. Great joy. Complete happiness.
Bliss equilibrium is a situation in which external physical influences and internal psychological forces that reflect an individual’s personality (character and behavior) are balanced in the absence of internal factors or external influences on the belief system (of values and truths), will not change.
Bliss equilibrium is also a situation where the human behavior towards the satisfaction of external needs matches the individual’s character against happiness as an internal psychological pre-state with an emotional base.
Blissful awareness is a type of mentality (beyond bliss), characterized by the absence of both intensity of happiness as a factor (emotional or psychological) and the feeling of contentment or satisfaction by living consciously in the present moment without minding being in a state of selflessness, fearlessness, helplessness, and powerlessness (inner peace).
If there is a shift in an individual’s behavior because of a shift in bliss awareness while character remains unchanged in the short term (just because of its nature), then there comes a disequilibrium as an inner disturbance (emotional pain or fear of pain), a deterioration in the living experience, and a decrease in happiness (causing unhappiness) due to the increase to the external dissatisfaction.
However, a longer-term shift in character as a subsequent shift in the outdated values of the belief system (or by developing an honorable and moral character as Aristotle claims) can cause a lift of the degree of happiness and satisfaction altering gradually an individual’s personality upgrading the living experience by adjusting the equilibrium level of personal reality on a higher plane.
What is a blissful person? The definition of a blissful person is to be extremely happy, or it is something that makes someone feel happy. If you are madly in love, getting married, and feel like you have a perfect life, this is an example of a time when you are blissful. It is a state of being consciously delighted, glad, gratified, happy, joyful, joyous.
Is bliss an emotion? Bliss is a feeling, an emotion, and a psychological factor at the same time. However, blissful awareness is a mentality towards a state of unity, transcendence, fullness, knowledge, wholeness, and elevated consciousness. It is a sense of unity and a sense of connection at the same time with all creation. Blissful awareness is never boring. It always feels new, expansive, and infinite.
Happiness vs Satisfaction
What is the difference between happiness and satisfaction?
Although related, happiness and life satisfaction are not the same things. Happiness is a psychological pre-state of bliss, while satisfaction is a physiological state of contentment. Happiness is a psychological factor with an emotional base. Satisfaction is a physiological factor based on body feelings and sensations.
If you are wondering what is important to you – it depends on your beliefs and ideology. You can find happiness in the little things in life. For example, eating your favorite ice cream can make you feel happy, but if you deeply feel guilty, then you will not feel satisfied.
Happiness is an immediate experience although enjoyable, it is ultimately elusive. Happiness is often lost when a person fails to achieve something, but satisfaction only decreases when the person can not achieve something. Actually, someone sees things from a different perspective in both cases. A healthy life certainly includes moments of happiness, but happiness alone does not usually lead to a full and fulfilling life.
What is personal satisfaction? The phrase “personal satisfaction” refers to a person’s sense of accomplishment or state of being satisfied. Having a feeling of joy or pleasure because of something you did or something that happened to you by being absolutely sure, convinced, or confident about something.
You will achieve satisfaction when the source of your happiness and success is aligned with your inner beliefs (belief system of values and truths) and the way you see yourself and the world. Being satisfied means doing work in a way that makes sense to you. So, in a way, aiming for happiness is a better way to do things efficiently while aiming for satisfaction is a better way to complete things effectively.
Bliss vs Happiness
What is the difference between bliss and happiness? Happiness is a psychological factor, based mostly on emotions while bliss is a combined state of mind and heart that are connected in perfect balance. Happiness appears as an aroused state of mind and whatever is in a state of excitement returns to a bliss state.
While bliss is a general state of both mind and heart in itself, you do not need to do anything to achieve bliss – it is just always there. It reflects the present moment (timing) as you’re always there by “Body, Mind, and Spirit” by being centered, free of diseases with no stress and worry against any struggles, without even realizing it consciously.
What is joy? Joy is a state of being extremely happy. Anything that gives you a sense of deep pleasure or excited happiness creates joy, from being surprised by an old friend you haven’t seen in years watching your favorite team finally win a big competition.
What is a joyful person? Someone who’s joyful is very happy. To be joyful is beyond being happy. There is a delight and a kind of bliss involved in feeling joyful. The noun joy is at the root of the word joyful, from the Old French joie with its Latin root of gaudere, “rejoice.”
Self-assurance is an inner state of being that comes from a deep self-understanding. Confidence is actually trusting in one’s abilities and self-assurance is self-trust in one’s self. Self-assurance is the act of assuring; a statement that tends to inspire complete or full confidence; that which is designed to give confidence.
What are the examples of self-assurance? The condition or quality of being confident in oneself. Self-assurance is defined as having confidence in yourself. An example of self-assurance is when you know that you will do well in whatever task you put in your mind.
What is the difference between self-confidence and self-esteem? Self-confidence is how confident you are in your abilities or skills. Self-esteem is related to how you feel about yourself. However, it is possible to have self-confidence and at the same time, have low self-esteem.
Where do people get their self-esteem from? Self-esteem is an inner state of being that stems from self-love, self-confidence, self-esteem, or self-trust. It is a situation that is somewhat timeless and unchanging because it is a direct measure of the way you value and consider yourself, despite what others can say or do.
What is the opposite of blissful? As opposed to providing perfect happiness or great joy. Dissatisfied displeased, miserable, or joyless.
Bliss Vs Satisfaction
What brings bliss to a person? Bliss can be defined as a natural direction that you can follow as a way to maximize your sense of joy, fulfillment, and purpose. Sometimes people equate happiness with being in a state of euphoria, but in reality, being blissful is the state you are in when you do what brings you a deep sense of mental joy and contentment in your heart.
Self-acceptance is an external state of being or existence that comes from self-empowerment.
What does self-empowerment mean? Self-empowerment means making a conscious decision to take control of your own destiny. It involves making positive choices, taking action to move forward, and being confident in your ability to make and execute weighted decisions.
Self-empowered means that people understand their strengths and weaknesses and are motivated to learn and succeed. The importance of being able to develop self-empowerment skills and maintain their own network of friends within their community.
Self-validation is accepting your own internal experience, your thoughts, and your own feelings. Self-validation doesn’t mean that you believe your thoughts or think your feelings are justified.
Learning to self-validate is not so easy. Being mindful of the thoughts you are having and the feelings you are experiencing is necessary before you can validate that internal experience.
Self-sufficient means needing no outside help in satisfying one’s basic needs. Emotionally and intellectually independent.
Self-mastery is the ability to control one’s desires or impulses, self-control, or self-discipline.
Self-emancipation means being free from restraint, influence, or the like. To terminate paternal control over.
Full Definition of Personality
What is the real meaning of personality? Personality refers to the combination of qualities, attitudes, tendencies, and behaviors that make a person distinct from others.
Personality reflects a characteristic way of thinking, feeling, or behaving. Personality embraces moods, attitudes, views, and beliefs and is more clearly expressed in interactions with other people.
Personality is also the way one interacts with one’s environment, the feelings and emotions one experiences, the things one does, the way one behaves, and the impressions one creates about the environment in which one operates. It concerns the footprint of the personality and differs radically from person to person just like the fingerprint.
In this way, even if a person’s innate preference is to avoid something, his/her beliefs and especially the beliefs that shape his/her character and behavior can evolve to reflect the truths and values in the immediate family and wider environment. Knowledge, awareness, and adaptability help in survival.
Main Componets of Personality
According to Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality, personality is composed of three elements. These three elements of personality known as the id, the ego, and the superego work together to create complex human behaviors.
As we already saw above, according to consciousness, the three main elements or components of personality are the character as a cause based on psychological or emotional factors, the behavior as the effect of external influences affected by physiological body feelings and sensations, and their causal-effect relationship that is felt both as self-resonant frequency and finally as an ongoing personal reality.
Personality is also the combination of characteristics, qualities, or traits that shape a person’s distinctive character.
Character is conceived as the density of happiness as the cause and the effect is expressed as the frequency of satisfaction, while bliss is perceived as an inner-balance of their causal-effect relationship through the preconscious-conscious-subconscious (Mind-Spirit-Body) respectively.
Character refers to a set of moral values, mental qualities, and truths that make a person different from others. Personality is subjective, as the character is also subjective despite the fact that most people believe that character is objective.
The character, on the other hand, is a more difficult beast.
If a person believes that a change in their environment is significant, then their beliefs will be transformed to respond or adapt to the change, but their values in the short term will remain virtually unchanged.
While personality is easier to identify, it is largely static and slow to evolve. The character, on the other hand, needs more time to discern and is more difficult or almost impossible to change.
This is because the character is shaped by belief systems and values as truths and requires a lot of effort and motivation, changing one’s perspective and view of their inner world that can lead to a change in character.
Personality also constitutes the main component of social interaction. New social and external demands lead to an internal change that changes human behavior.
How personality contributes to reality? I believe that character refers to the values that attract subjective behavior in each and every circumstance. The character refers to the means and scenarios that one will use, and the conditions that compose these scenarios taking into account the possibilities of success and skills that one has. These scenarios through the mechanism of consciousness come to fruition creating the living experience.
Thus, the real character is about efficiency or performance while honest behavior is about effectiveness. Both are supported by the analytical way of thinking reviewed in detail in another article.
The way the character is exposed is through a series of behavioral tests in order to achieve the goal with the desired result. The character is often hidden in layers of different and conflicting interests.
Changing character makes sense when you look collectively at human evolution. In order for our ancestors to survive and thrive, they had to adapt to new environments and change.
If one is never really tested, the true character may never be seen.
The bottom line is that despite the importance of our inherent personality traits, it is essential that we adapt to personal, social, or cultural requirements.
The Cell Division Cycle
The size of a multicellular organism, its organs, and tissues depend on the number and size of constituent cells. Cell number depends on the rate of cell division, the number of dividing cells, and the duration of the cell proliferation phase during growth, while the size of the non-dividing cells is affected by the cells’ growth and cell expansion.
The cell cycle, or cell division cycle, is the sequence of events that take place in a cell that causes it to divide into two daughter cells. These events involve the duplication of its DNA (replication) and some of its organelles, and subsequently, the partitioning of its cytoplasm and other components into two daughter cells in a process called cell division.
The Causal Relationship vs The Cell Division Cycle
As we saw in a previous article, all the processes in the world are evoked not only by a one-way or one-sided action-reaction but are also based on the relationship of at least two interacting objects due to the existence of cause and effect forces and their subsequent causal effect interaction forces.
The same exactly happens with the cell cycle, or cell division cycle, which is the sequence of events that take place in a cell that causes it to divide into two daughter cells due to the existence of the same exact forces cause and effect, and their subsequent causal effect.
In Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, he opens with the claim that all human activities aim at some good. Actually, all the processes that take place in a cell reflect the mental processes towards bliss equilibrium that is in fact the creation and maintenance of the human body and its internal-external environment, reality creation, and existence through the conscious-unconscious and preconscious-subconscious mind.
Before annihilation takes place character as a cause turns to antiparticles while behavior as an effect turns to particles. Particle and antiparticle pairs are created by large accumulations of energy. This is a manifestation of Einstein’s famous equivalence between mass and energy, E=mc2.
Particle and its antiparticle have the same mass as one another, but opposite electric charge and magnetic moment. After annihilation, particles turn to the velocity of light or range of wavelengths and antiparticles turn to the intensity of light or power of light.
We understood the physical law which is also a spiritual law: light and darkness cannot occupy the same space at the same time. When there is light, darkness is vanquished and must depart. Most importantly, darkness can not conquer light unless the light is diminished or departs.
As we saw in detail in another article the retina of our eyes through cones detect the primary colors red, blue, and yellow as wavelengths and rods let us see things in black, white, and grey. Objects appear in different colors, but actually, they don’t have a color, they give off light that appears to be a color.
Light waves come from the vibration of charged particles. When a sound or light wave strikes an object, it is already vibrating at some particular frequency. If that frequency happens to match the resonant frequency of the object it’s hitting, then you’ll get what’s called resonance.
What is Resonance? An object free to vibrate tends to do so at a specific rate called the natural or resonant frequency of the object. Such an object will vibrate intensely when subjected to vibrations or regular impulses at a frequency equal to or very close to its natural frequency. This phenomenon is called resonance.
What is the natural frequency of a body? Physical frequency, also known as eigenfrequency, is the frequency at which a system tends to oscillate in the absence of a driving force or damping force. The motion pattern of a system that oscillates at its natural frequency is called the normal mode.
What is a person’s resonant frequency? Prolonged exposure can cause undue stress and discomfort to the human body, especially at its resonant frequency. Testing the human body’s response on a vibrating platform, many researchers have found that the fundamental resonant frequency of the entire human body is around 5 Hz.
Do people vibrate at different frequencies? It is known that the human body can generate mechanical vibrations at very low frequencies, the so-called infrasonic waves. Different organs of the human body produce different resonant frequencies. The heart resonance frequency is ~ 1 Hz.
According to Aristotle, all human activities aim at some good. The purpose is obvious to outperform unexpected challenges as struggles, risks, or problems by finding reasonable (efficient, effective) solutions.
Through consciousness (which have engaged scholars since at least the time of Aristotle) and its remarkable mental abilities, the actual solutions to these problems or risks form the causal effect relationships as energetic ties between the two main variables of cause and effect as energetic links that once formed can never extinguish.
Those ties appear as strong character traits or skills based on previous solutions on one hand and on the other as behavioral tests towards the future success or possible feats against those problems or risks.
The actual drives of this endeavor besides survival are the desires, wishes, or expectations in order to be fulfilled. This is an ongoing process that gives the impression of the living experience as an actual reality.
In this way, the inner environment meets the external environment by adjusting human behavior, developing and enduring strong character traits, that lead to a distinct and strong personality towards the true self (that reflects inner environment through the mind), ideal self (that reflects external environment through the heart), one-self (that reflects unity as spiritual serenity through the spirit), and finally self-gnosis through spiritual enlightenment.
The prize behind this effort is personal happiness as an individual’s direct assessment of their own worth and abilities which encompasses the truths around the true or authentic self (assessing the available means of achievement or potential successes), based on emotional and psychological factors such as self-esteem, self-love, self-confidence, and self-trust.
The response to the above efforts comes from personal satisfaction as an individual’s honest evaluation of their own capabilities which encompasses the satisfaction of one’s fulfillment of their needs in regards to his/her own values as the ideal-self (evaluating the appropriate ways of fulfillment as actual responses-to-abilities) such as self-empowerment, self-enabling, self-emancipation, self-sufficiency, self-mastery, and self-validation.
The ultimate drive for both of them (of the attainment and fulfillment of personal happiness and satisfaction towards the unity of oneself) is always to retain or obtain a new bliss equilibrium (eudaimonia as virtue and meaning according to Aristotle), as a new situation where internal qualitative factors as causes (provable solutions based on previous facts, as certainties) and external quantitative influences as effects (potential results as events or actualities) are balanced towards the feelings of the attainment or fulfillment of needs and desires as causal-effects relationships (actual solutions or occurrences).
Attaining bliss equilibrium is a pre-state that reflects the present moment as “Body, Mind and Spirit”. In fact, in order for the old status quo to change towards a new bliss equilibrium, the individual has to develop blissful awareness.
Blissful awareness is a new mentality of creation and existence on an always higher and higher plane towards self-gnosis through spiritual enlightenment by being delighted, glad, gratified, happy, joyful, and joyous, leading gradually to inner peace that is a conscious state of unity, and a sense of connection with all creation (creating mental euphoria and heart skipping about with joy).
That further means being able or allowed to form a balanced personality where an individual does not mind being in a state of selflessness, fearlessness, helplessness, and powerlessness in order to avoid abusive behavior as an actual impact of inner disturbance.
By shifting to this new mindset, the cell division cycle that reflects this change will alter accordingly its sequence of events and their DNA replication and after a particular procedure called annihilation, the mass will finally turn to energy and light waves, expressed as an individual’s resonant body frequency and its surrounded environment colors and shapes that will be detected by the perceptual system (as pictures, sounds, and feelings).
In this way by changing the views, belief system, old dogmas, and the subsequent stance of life, a new personality will spring and as a consequence, a new reality will emerge, healthier, happier, and more satisfying on all levels than ever before.
A new persona equals a new personal reality, a new meaning of creating, living, and experiencing, a more satisfying, and peaceful life, inside a newfound, more interesting, and a safer world. This exactly reflects the version of the human society that Aristotle envisioned. A virtuous world!
