Today, do not judge yourself as selfish for focusing on your own joy. Instead, recall that when you focus on your own joy, you become a beacon of joy for others. Joy, as an expression of Love, is an aspect of our eternal essence and nature. The joyous state is our true Home. Joy is God’s inheritance. We, as God’s children, are forever worthy of His inheritance. Just as rivers flow toward the sea, so too do we all desire to align with and become an expression and reflection of our joyful, eternal essence and nature. When you choose to align with your joyous state, others will see that this same possibility exists for them. They will be attracted to your way of being because deep down, they know that what is possible for you is also possible for and available to 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 awaken to your joyous nature it will sooner to later begin to overflow. Then it will be and feel more than natural to want to share it with others. By sharing your experience you will show others the path to joy. Through your words and actions you will lead them to the freedom that forgiveness offers. They will see the hope and healing that being compassionate and understanding gives you. They will note the self-awareness and fulfillment that doing what you are passionate about brings to your life. This way of being will align you with the state of joy. This alignment will help you 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 your joy increases as you share it. As you do so realize that even just one joyous person because joy is an expression of God who is unlimited can indeed help to bring joy to the world. Understanding this today 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. This experience and knowledge will then fuel your joy to even greater heights. Fear no longer to give away your joy. Now you know that even when you give it away 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. God’s gifts are All that is forever real and true. God’s gifts actually increase as they are given away. Understanding this 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 and its expressions. Now, you are creating as you were created to create. Today, begin to notice how fear, confusion, sadness and hopelessness begin to bow down, diminish and dissolve before your joyous nature, light and creation. Today simply share with all others what God has shared with and gifted to you.
Know that the ego will continue to bombard you with the false concept that it is selfish to focus on your own joy. Yet when the ego does so look to your past and recall all the times you have purposely dimmed your own light. The times you have placed aside your joy, passions and dreams, just so that you would not stand out, just so that you would fit in. Notice how little you served this world by hiding your truth and loving light from self and others. We have all hid long enough. It is now time to awaken, rise, laugh out loud be joyous and shine forever bright. There are so many who have forgotten their joyous nature. Today, through your joy help them recall who in truth they are. You are here to through your joyous nature to be of service. You are here to help remind others of the light within them. Today, be God’s joy in whichever ways the moment request from 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, hopes and dreams. Look within, your gifts are unique to you. You have a sacred purpose to fulfill. 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 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 is a gift and 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, simply be who you were created to be. By doing so help remind those who are placed along your 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 by God to be. Shine your light bright for all to see. The more others see your joy, the more they will recognize this same possibility in them. This will help them be more aware of their loving nature, and their own internal beacon of joy will brighten. By becoming brighter beacons of joy, they will help remind those around them that this same light exists 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. Your unique expression of the light within you is God’s gift to you and your gift to this world.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
