Mother Teresa is a phenomenon in the God's creation.
The poem 'LIFE' is well-known as a great quote from her wonderful sayings.
This is an attempt to understand what is LIFE and its interpretation from each line in that poem.

Here, I examine how 'Life is bliss' and how to 'taste it'.

Life is bliss, taste it.


Ignorance is not bliss. Knowing that we are alive is bliss. Life tastes insipid if there is no enthusiasm, so to say an Enthusiasm to live and let live.

Bliss is a constant state of joy resulting from profound satisfaction undisturbed by gain or loss.

The state of Mother Teresa’s life was bliss.

Bliss was her true nature. She was never taken aback by the difficulties she faced in serving the poor and the destitute.

Letting a helping hand to make others live at par with herself - Mother Teresa demonstrated that bliss can be tasted.

Bliss is infinite joy which can be felt when you lose yourself. Bliss is where you are yourself without your ego.

You are the bliss when you realize that every other soul is just you. She showed the world that caring for the God existent in every human with unconditional love is bliss.

*****
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~Mother Teresa

Though she was in the mission of the poor, she had a rich heart.
