Joy is who I am

“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 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 found shared joy in the deepest, darkest parts of my journey and in the valleys through which we all hope never to pass and sometimes Joy found me on the mountain peaks … shining across my internal landscape like a beacon … illuminating the corners and crevasses and beckoning 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 think that we have simply forgotten this little fact in the face of overwhelming physical “stuff”.   So … if that is the case … perhaps we simply need to stop hitting the Celestial snooze alarm and wake ourselves back up.  Perhaps it’s time to drag our sleepy, little 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 … 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.”  Well, I have this to say about that.  “Here I am Happiness … right over here … standing in the open, front door.  Perky Polly has ice cream cones all set up and we’re both hand-in-hand with Life waiting to welcome you and your buddy – Joy!!”  Wait a minute … I think I see a sparkle in the distance and it’s coming closer with each breath.   Is it? … Could it be?  Yes, Yes … I believe that it is indeed Happiness and Joy … and they’re arriving with their moving van.  Perky Polly is cheering!  Happiness and Joy are returning  and this time they’re coming home to stay.

Arinaste and Joyful Journeying Everyone
