Noun[edit]

bliss ninny (plural bliss ninnies)

  1. (slang, derogatory) A person who is unrealistically optimistic, or a Pollyanna, and who might seem to prefer to retreat from difficult situations by professing seemingly irrelevant platitudes, rather than engaging meaningfully with the difficulty at hand.
  2. (slang, spirituality) A student who may seem to be intoxicated with spiritual teachings, but is ungrounded or untrained.

      If you don't extend the circuitry, chances are you are going to be blown out, or even become a "bliss ninny." It's very easy to fall into bliss; we are only a fraction of a psychic centimeter away from it all the time.
