This is why it is so important for you to get acquainted with that eternal part of you that does not suffer and is in touch with the creative energy of the Universe. Many methods of bypassing the mind exist, including Transcendental Meditation. During these states you will observe the mind acting up but will be detached from it and able to attain the deep, stillness inside that you seek.
Bliss is a path, a state of being. It is not an end result of a given number of steps. When the chattering mind is put in its proper place (as a helper, instead of running the show), sadness will not run your life anymore.
