“You are joy, looking for a way to express. It’s not just that your purpose is joy; it is that you are joy. You are love and joy and freedom and clarity expressing.” … Abraham-Hicks
I’ve always been a pretty happy person. For sure there have been ups and downs … good times and bad times … scary moments and not-so-scary but all-in-all I’d have to say that the Perky Polly approach to life has been my predominant way of being. I’ve also experienced a few highlighted moments of exquisite Joy and the memories of those few-and-far-between feelings have kept me constantly on the lookout for more of them.
I have found that often the road to Joy is a twisting and turning one filled with deep valleys and rocky but beautiful mountains. Sometimes I have found shared joy in the deepest, darkest parts of my journey … in the valleys through which we all hope to never pass. Sometimes Joy found me on the mountain peaks … shining across my internal landscape like a beacon … illuminating the corners and crevasses and calling me forward.
I agree with Abraham-Hicks … I believe that Joy is the natural state in which the special sparks … which are our souls … dance around the Universe. I believe that we have simply forgotten this little fact in the face of overwhelming physical “stuff”. So … if that is the case … well … perhaps we simply need to stop hitting the Celestial snooze alarm and wake ourselves back up. Perhaps it’s time to drag our sleepy feet out of bed … turn up the volume of radio station L.I.F.E. and re-engage with Life itself.
If finding and sharing Joy is not simply my purpose but is actually who I am then I don’t want to let another moment slide on by without welcoming my joyful … albeit sometimes buried … Self into my home. Hafiz reminds me of my natural state when he says: “Ever since happiness heard your name it has been running through the streets trying to find you.” “Here I am Happiness … right over here! And here I am Joy … standing by the open door, hand-in-hand with Life … we’re waiting to welcome you in!!” I think I see a sparkle in the distance … coming closer with each anticipatory breath … Is it? … Could it be? … Yes, yes, I believe that it is Happiness and Joy … arriving with their moving van … coming home to stay.
