Bliss is the companion of enlightenment.

Self perceives itself as abstract not to be by itself with the purpose quite simply and understandably being companionship, friendship, love. Now there is only one problem with this approach. It cause self a great deal of separation-anxiety. We could thus conclude that separation-anxiety is self induced for there is in truth no separation nor division; it is just that self is diverse not to be by itself; to love and be loved in return. Such is the origin and purpose of the wor(l)d: the purpose of the wor(l)d is love. It is said that bliss (ananda) is the company of awakening/enlightenment (buddha) and so it is for bliss is self realizing who- and why it is; who it is is one and why it is is love.
