The causal kosha is also known as the bliss body as we often experience it as a wave of bliss when we pass through it, as when transcending during meditation. But why then are there layers of bliss that can include massive increases and raptures?
This comes back to nested spaces. We exist in a personal space, in the space of our family, in the space of our community, city, province, country, world, solar system, galaxy, galactic cluster, supercluster, unnamed region, and universe.
At the event horizon of each of these spaces is a lively field of becoming that supports the forms within. This lively edge is because consciousness becoming self-aware creates space. Consciousness curves back on itself repeatedly at progressively smaller scales, in the reverse order of the list above.
We can experience this liveliness of self-aware consciousness as bliss. We don’t just have a bliss kosha but layers and layers of them, each more universal and each approaching infinity.
The layers described in “100 times the bliss” relate to another form of nested space, the lokas. Lokas are specialized worlds within the layers of our universe. Each nested space has a quality of bliss but as we get into more universal spaces where consciousness is more alive, the liveliness is more expressed and more intense.
For example, the physical world has a limited form of happiness. The energy world has pleasure. The mental world has satisfaction. The heart opens the door to happiness on a more infinite scale. And the throat brings us our first universal bliss and is associated with the bliss body itself. And so on.
The “higher” we go, the more universal we get, the closer to source, and the more powerful the liveliness is. Each increases the value of bliss.
