Today, let us not judge ourselves or others as selfish for focusing on our own joy. Instead, let us recall that we are all One, thus when you focus on your own joy, you become a beacon of joy for others. Joy, as an expression of Love, is an extension of our eternal essence and nature. When we are in the joyous state, we are at home, where we truly belong. When we choose joy, we are simply accepting God’s inheritance, and we as His children, are forever worthy of His inheritance. Just as rivers naturally flow towards the sea, so too do we all, consciously or not, desire to align with and become an expression and reflection of our eternal joyous essence and nature. When you make the conscious choice to align with your joy, because we are all One, others will see that this same possibility exists for them. Others, being Joy’s children themselves, will also want to align with their true nature. They will be attracted to your way of being, because deep down they know that what is possible for you is also possible for them. They will want to better understand what it is that you have done, or how it is that you think, that brings you into alignment with the state of joy. When you have awakened to your joyous nature, when it begins to overflow from you, it will be and feel more than natural to want to share it with others. You will begin to show others the path to joy. Through your words and actions, you will lead them to the freedom that forgiveness offers, to the hope and healing that being compassionate and understanding gives you, and to the self-awareness and fulfillment that doing what you are passionate about brings to your life. These actions will all become symbols of your conscious alignment to joy. Through this alignment, you will begin to foster a more joyful environment around you, and thus a more joyful world. You will then see that focusing on your own joy, is not a selfish act, but a selfless one.
Today, notice, that you don’t lose your joy by offering it to others, instead that your joy increases when you share it with others. As you do so, you will begin to realize, that even just one joyous person, because joy is an expression of God who is unlimited, can indeed help bring joy to the whole world. Understanding this, today and each day forth, wholeheartedly and without hesitation or embarrassment, fully accept God’s gift of joy for yourself. Do so, and your joyous light will begin to shine brighter and brighter each day. You will see that the brighter your joyous light shines, the more people it will touch, and this understanding and experience will fuel your joy to even greater heights. Fear no longer to give away your joy, for now you know that you could never lose God’s inheritance. God’s inheritance is forever yours because you are forever His. God’s gifts are never lessen when they are given away because God’s gifts are All that is forever real and true. In fact, now you know that God’s gifts actually increase as they are given away, and thus why fear of losing your joy by giving it away, is no longer possible. Today, when you “give away” your joy to others, notice what you are creating. You are creating a world where joy is available to all who come your way. What else but peace and gratitude could you experience in such a world. Now, you are creating as God creates, through Love. Now, you are creating as you were created to create. Today, begin to notice fear, confusion, sadness and hopelessness, begin to bow down and dissolve before your joyous nature, light and creation.
The ego will continue to bombard you with the idea that it is selfish to focus on your own joy. Yet when the ego does so, look to your past, remember all the times you have purposely dimmed your own light, your joy, your passions and dreams, just so that you would not stand out, just so that you would fit in, and see how little you served this world by hiding your truth from yourself and others. We have all hid long enough. It is now time to awaken and rise, to laugh out loud, to be joyous and shine forever bright. There are so many who have forgotten their joyous nature, and are asking, in their own unique ways, to be reminded. You are here to love, be joyous and of service. You are here to help remind others of the light within them, of their true joyous nature. Today, be God’s joy, in whichever ways comes most naturally to and through you. Be who you came here to be, God desires nothing more from you than that. Today, allow joy to lead you. Ask joy to direct you to your passions, to your hopes and dreams. Look within, your gifts are unique to you. You have a sacred purpose to fulfill, and your joy is just one of the many keys that will open your understanding of what that purpose is. You have created your journey with the Creator of the universe, with Joy Himself, no longer doubt nor decline your inheritance. You are a blessing to this world, and that is why you are here, to bless it. Every part of you, because every part of you is God’s creation, is a blessing to this world. Hide your uniqueness no longer. No longer hide the light of God within. Today, shine in the ways that only you can. You are God’s gift to this world. You are joy in physical form. Today, be who you were created to be, and by doing so remind all who are placed along your sacred path, that they themselves hold the light of Joy within them.
Today, do what brings joy to your heart and makes your soul sing. Become the beacon of joy that you were created to be. Shine your light bright for all to see. The more that others, through your example, see that they too can choose the path of joy, the more they will begin to use this understanding in the choices that they make. This will make them more self-aware of their true loving nature, and by doing so, their own internal beacons of joy will brighten. By them becoming brighter beacons of joy, they will help remind those around them, that this same light exist within them. In this manner your joy and light will help lead this world to a place of healing and peace. Do not feel shamed into dimming your light. Instead, hold your unique light up high, and shine your light bright, for all to see. You are not who you are by chance. You were created as uniquely as you are for a higher purpose. Be proud of the light within you, it is your Creator’s gift to you, and your gift to this planet.
