One needs to be blissful for godliness to enter your being, because unless you are dancing and singing and celebrating, you are not ready for godliness. Godliness is celebration, godliness is a dance, godliness is a song.
Godliness cannot happen to people who are sad and serious, godliness cannot happen to miserable people. Misery makes people shrink, bliss makes them expand, bliss makes them spacious — and godliness needs all the space, only then can the ultimate sky enter you. You have to become almost as vast as the sky — and this is possible only in absolute blissfulness.
