Daily Inspiration: November 8. Becoming a Beacon of Joy

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.

HELLO JAMES. THIS MESSAGE WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TODAY. LAST FEW WEEKS HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATING FOR ME. ALTHOUGH I TRY TO BE IN THE MOMENT AND THUS BE ALIGNED WITH MY GODSELF, THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I JUST FEEL LIKE EXPERIENCING MY EMOTIONS. TO HEAL, WE HAVE TO FEEL AND THUS I GIVE IN TO THE EMOTIONS SOMETIMES.
I SEE SOMETIMES, WHEN I CAN NOT SEE MY LIGHT, HOW FAR I HAVE COME. HOW MY TRUST IN GOD HAS MADE ME STRONGER. HOW MY JOY HAS HEALED ME AND OTHERS AROUND ME. HOW OPEN I AM TO LIFE NOW. BUT STILL I HAVE FEARS. I JUST WANT THESE FEARS WHICH ARE OBVIOUSLY MADE BY MY EGO SELF TO BE GONE. THESE FEARS MAKE ME FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY AND CONCEAL MY JOY.
WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ABOUT BOUNDARIES? I’M VERY OPEN TO LIFE RIGHT NOW AND HAVE DESTROYED MANY BOUNDARIES TO FIND THAT GOD’S LOVE IS PRESENT EVEN BEYOND THEM. BUT THERE ARE SOME BOUNDARIES THAT I JUST CAN NOT DESTROY. BY GOD’S WILL, I MET THIS BOY AND IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOREVER. DUE TO HIM, I GREW SO MUCH SPIRITUALLY. HE GAVE ME OPPORTUNITIES TO FORGIVE AND I LEARNT FORGIVENESS. I HAVE GROWN SO MUCH. HE HAS PROVEN TO BE A GIFT FROM GOD TIME AND TIME AGAIN. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. BUT I AM AFRAID OF MARRIAGE AND I HAD DECIDED TO NEVER MARRY. BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE MY FREEDOM WILL BE GONE AFTER MARRIAGE AND MARRIAGE IS TOO MUCH OF A RESPONSIBILITY FOR ME. HIS HEART WOULD BREAK IF I DON’T MARRY HIM BUT I JUST DON’T WANT TO LEAVE MY FREEDOM WHICH TRULY MATTERS TO ME FOR HIM. SINCE WE ALL ARE ONE, WHAT WE DO TO OTHERS, WE DO TO OUR SELF. SO, IS IT OKAY TO SACRIFICE YOUR BOUNDARIES FOR THE HAPPINESS OF OTHERS? AND WHAT IF ONE’S HAPPINESS IS ANOTHER PERSON’S NIGHTMARE? AND I CAN’T CHOOSE….. IS FORGIVENESS WITHIN ME ABUNDANT? CAN I DRAW CUP AFTER CUP OF FORGIVENESS? SHOULD I?
THANK YOU SO MUCH JAMES. YOU HAVE HELPED ME GROW SO MUCH.

Thank you Shivani for being open to the message.

Only the emotions that we allow ourselves to feel are those we allow ourselves to heal. Knowing this, do not ever judge yourself for being human. In reality, having co-designed your journey with the Divine, your journey will always be perfect for you, and so trust this and be at peace.

Today, when ever you doubt yourself, worry, become upset, emotional or fearful, practice using such moments, not as times to demean yourself or others, but instead to become grateful that you are been given by God another opportunity to realize that you no longer desire to support with your time, focus and energy, what is not true about you. The more you recall who you are not, the easier it will be to become who you came here to be, and so you see, everything is in one form or another helpful. Every moment is indeed, when properly perceived a gift from God to you. When you see each moment as a gift from the Universe to you, it is then that you become a gift from the Universe to all those God sends your way.

No longer fear your fears. Instead make them your allies in your awakening process. Now, when they come, first thank them for being a sacred part of your awakening journey, then use them to choose their opposite and by doing so feel them dissolve before your light and understanding. For example, if fear comes your way, thank it and use is to instead consciously place your full trust in God’s plan. When you do so you will behold your fears slowly dissolve away. As your fear dissolves and your trust grows, your gratitude to God will rise and shine bright becoming a light within the darkness, a beacon of hope for those in despair.

Note, that is it not fear that has the power, it is how you define and interpret that fear that gives it the power. It is you who in the end gives fear whatever power it has over your day and life. And so now when fear comes, choose not to become frustrated or angry, for that gives it a power it should never have. Instead offer it your compassion, gratitude and understanding. It is by doing so that you take back control over your thoughts and thus over your emotions and life. Remember, it is you who have control over your thoughts, your thoughts should not be controlling you.

Each and every person we ever meet, when they are properly perceived, are seen as a gift from God to us. Whenever you need to decide something, simply do what brings you peace and you will have peace. Being all One, if you do what brings you peace it will be, even if others can’t see it, what is best for all those around you. Always remember that if you fear anything, you give away your power to it. I would never tell you to marry or not to marry, that is your choice. What I would say is that if you fear anything, in this case marriage, then it is you who is giving away your own freedom by thinking that marriage is something to fear. If you don’t feel ready for marriage, then don’t marry. Again, if marriage is not something that will bring you joy and peace, then, at least at that moment, marriage is not right for you. If he loves you then he would want you to be joyous and at peace, and if you are joyous and at peace, because he loves you he too will be joyous and at peace. Maybe you two can create something new, some sort of partnership were you are not married but are committed to each other, and thus were you still feel free.

Remember, that you as God’s child and creation are forever worthy of the state of peace. But, in order to be at peace you must forgive, and so you always forgive, but not necessarily for another ones benefit, but in order to help return you to the state of peace, so that you can fulfill your function as the light of the world. Now, of course if another is being physically or emotionally abusive, you can forgive them, but you don’t need to remain around them.

Do not ever despair, but if you do forgive yourself and others, then learn to used that despair not to dive deeper into the darkness, but instead to recall that as a child of the Creator of the Universe you are here to create as He created, through the energy of love. And so learn to see that despair as a call from the Universe to you, inviting you to dismiss what could never be real about Love’s plan for you. Then offer such moments your gratitude for helping you recall that “I can choose peace instead of this.”

It is my honor to serve you in any little way that I can.

All glory to God.

Peace. JBC
