transcendental happiness

... transcendental happiness, it almost sounds
like the good feeling you get after a visit
to the dentist

... but what is it? My reading from the
Srimad Bhagavatam says this:
When the mind is dovetailed to act according
to the desire of the Lord, that is the transcendental
stage. The desire to lord it over material nature is
the cause of ignorance, and when that desire is completely
extinguished and the desires are dovetailed with those of
the Supreme Lord, that is the perfectional stage

... so true happiness comes from knowing something
deep down inside your mind

... my transcendental happiness now comes in the
form of sleep, and as I look straight into the jaws
of the coming cold spell, my inner mind says
to hibernate

... just be like a bear, find a den, and sleep
until the weather is good again

... modern people miss out on hibernation with
the 24-7-365 rat race going, I think it's why
we grow old quick, not enough hibernation
