Joy is a realm of existence rarely experienced by humans thus far. It is like rarified air, high up in the peaks, the farthest altitudes accessible by humans.
And yet it is within our grasp, now. As we learn how to navigate this ‘Map of Emotions’, we discover that Joy is our birthright. It is our origin. It is our natural, innermost state. We are Joy.
For a brief instant, step into the energy field of Joy.
Memories may flash in you, like snapshots on a movie screen. You may feel sensations in your body or hear inner voices. Notice how your body responds. Do you feel energized? Effervescent? What is the expression on your face? Do you feel good about yourself? About life? About possibilities? Do you feel inspired? What do you notice about your breathing? Be as alert as you can possibly be for these few moments.
Familiarize yourself with the energy field of Joy so that you can recognize it as an observer when this is what you are experiencing. As you master this, you will be able to access it again at Will, whenever you choose.
As soon as you have a sense of the energy field of Joy, step out of it – even though it feels so utterly amazing. Become an observer simply watching it – from the outside. This returns you to a place of choice.
Remember … We are traveling UP this ladder of emotions. Keep reading the upcoming posts. Joy is one of several wonderful choices 🙂 We can climb even higher!
