Today we will be speaking on joy! This world is a very confusing place right now; your news is full of war and destruction. I think it is time for all of us to bring our minds and our lives back to joy.
It is when your hearts are filled with love and joy that you start to remember “home” … the time before. So I would ask you, as you are reading this missive right now, “Is your heart filled with peace? With love? With joy?” Or are you hoping that in reading these words, or the words of any person who is called “a channel” that you might find that place inside of you where there is joy?
I would tell you now, you need only yourself to find total contentment with your life; and in that, there is joy.
In my teaching while on this Earth, my words often focused on finding peace within yourself; total trust of who you are and who you were intended to become in your lifetime. And with that peace, came joy. I pointed out to those that would listen that there is joy all around you! You only need to look, to remember, and to feel your joy.
We are not looking for miracles here. It is not necessary for a miracle, to feel the warmth of joy; though it doesn’t hurt any for a miracle here and there to occur! There is contentment and joy to sit in your back yard and look at the garden you have toiled over to bring beauty or food to your home. There is joy in the smile of a child as he takes his first tentative steps into the newfound realm of toddlerhood! There is joy in an ice cold glass of clear, cold, pure water on a hot summer’s day. There is joy in being able to fold into the warm and tender arms of your beloved. There is even the bitter-sweet joy of the memory, if your beloved has passed on… or is yet to be found.
In the movie “Heaven is for Real,” the joy came not only to the minister and his family, but to his entire congregation when they were able to move past their mortal stumbling blocks that would have them **only** believing in heaven… to the **knowing,** beyond all doubts, that it is real and… that we are here watching each and every one of you, standing by your side in sorrow or fear; and again laughing the deep belly laugh of total joy; or just sitting by your side in quiet contentment. The lesson brought to those people by this beautiful small child was one of joy! He brought them the gift of knowing, beyond all doubt, that I am real and, with that knowing, came the gift of life filled with love and total joy.
I would ask each and every one of you to finish this journey by totally believing in yourself; in the knowing of who you are or who you long to be! Listen to your heart when it is speaking to you. Know that in all of the Universe, it is your heart (or your Higher Self) that will give you nothing but the Truth. Allow yourself to move beyond “I think there might be a heaven, or a Heavenly Father” to the knowing, with all of your heart, that this is one thing you need never doubt. And in that knowing, will come the peace and the joy you need to complete this incredible journey that you are on, right now.
It will bring you Harmony; it will bring you Unconditional Love; it will bring you Home…
I am Sananda, and I wish you Total JOY!
