Every morning when you wake up, you are born anew. We are born anew and yet always with the gift of free will. Today, let us use our gift of free will to make a conscious decision to travel in the direction of our happiness. Let us do this by shifting our time, focus and energy toward thoughts, words and actions that bring us joy. Do not let the ego convince you that this is a selfish act. Being all One, what helps one align with their happy, loving nature, helps serve as an example to others of what is also possible for them. When you focus on your own joy, you then become a beacon of joy for others. Even if you just focus on being happy one more time or five more minutes each day, you will see your life shift in the direction of your happiness. What makes you happy? Take your direction from the answers to that question and each day move toward your goal, even if it is in small steps. Because of the gift of free will, it is we who have control over our thoughts.
If your thoughts are not moving you in the direction of joy then make the conscious decision to shift the focus of your thoughts. Shift your thoughts to help you achieve your desired outcome. Do not put yourself down if you are currently entertaining thoughts that are driving you away from joy. Instead, use this self-awareness to stop moving away from your goal. Use this self-awareness to stop supporting thoughts the are not moving you towards your desired destination. Thank your non joy producing thoughts for helping you realize that following them will not produce your desired result. The more thoughts, words and actions you realize do not produce your desired outcome the less of your time, focus and energy you will sacrifice to them. The less time you sacrifice the more time you will have to be joyous.
How many dozens of opportunities do we have to inspire us throughout the day and thus move our life little by little in the direction of our joy? The more often we decide to move in the direction of our joy the more we will begin to notice how available the choice for joy is for us. The more we decide to align with the state of joy the more worthy of joy we will feel. The more worthy of joy we feel the more natural the state of joy will become. We were created to be, experience and share Love’s expressions in our own unique ways. Joy is one of Love’s numerous expressions. Love has numerous expressions such as those of being kind, compassionate, passionate, peaceful, playful, forgiving, graceful and joyful. Today, it is joy we are being asked to focus on, create and share. Knowing this let us put our time and effort towards that goal. Today, allow what you create or how you create it, be it through thoughts, words or actions to move you in joy’s direction. Joy, as an expression of Love aligns you with Its expressions. Anytime you are creating through any of Love’s expressions you are moving in joy’s direction. Be kind, compassionate, passionate, peaceful, playful, forgiving, graceful and you will be in one form or another creating joy. It is not difficult to be the joyful being you were create to be. What is hard is to try to not be who you were created to be. What makes our journey hard is when we are choosing to do things that move us away from joy. Today, when the ego tries to convince you that happiness is hard smile at its delusional thinking. Then recall that Love and thus Joy created you and that in truth there is nothing easier than being who you were created to be.
Today, let us make an effort to dedicate this day to doing and focusing on a few extra thoughts, words and actions that makes us happy. How easy and enjoyable will our efforts be today? Simply take a little extra time during the day and ask yourself: “What would make me happy right now?” “How can I align this moment with Joy”. Remember that focusing on your own joy is not a selfish act. Being all One by being joyful you become a beacon of joy for others. Focusing on being joyful helps others see and recall that they too have that same ability to choose joy. Imagine, being able to make this world a more joyful place by simply focusing on your own joy. How lovely and light-filled would such a day and life become? Being all One when you make another person happy that feeling, energy and offering will first flow through you. That happiness flows through you and then touches and blesses the other person. That ‘other’ person then takes it with him and yet at the same time that happiness through that life experience forever remains within you. Thanks to you offering your joy to them they too forever get to keep its memory. They then have the opportunity to share it with others. The happier we become the greater our light shines. The brighter our light shines the more we become examples that joy thanks to God’s gift of free will is forever in any moment or interaction available to us. Joy is always just a simple choice away. Knowing this today simply do what brings you joy. Be who you were created to be. That is all you are being asked to do today. Throughout your day continue to make the choice for joy and begin to watch this world smile and become grateful for your efforts.
Today, recall that you are Love’s creation and that joy is one of Love’s numerous expressions. When you are being asked to focus on joy, you are simply being asked to be who you already are. It is not hard to be who you were created to be. What is hard is to try to not be who you were created to be. Free will offers you the opportunity to choose and align with joy in every thought, word and action. Joy is one of Love’s numerous treasures. You, as Love’s creation, are forever worthy of God’s inheritance. Today, accept and enjoy your inheritance by sharing it. Offer joy to others and experience this energy flowing through you and throughout your day. Today, simply choose to support the thoughts, words and actions that align you with joy, and forgive and let go of those that try to move you away from joy.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
