Happy Solstice as the sun starts a new direction.
Pray for new directions for our country and the world.

Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God.”
– note on Stephen Colbert’s desk

I turned the corner when I let joy be my compass. And I mean kick-ass joy that continuously bubbles up from my core and becomes part of my every-day life. Joy that makes me grin in the supermarket and sing in the garden. Joy that springs from genuine love of myself, the life I’ve purposely created and my connection to my higher power. Joy that self-generates and is not dependent on external factors. Choose happiness and you ooze magic, possibility and synchronicity.

We are taught to be responsible, contributing members of society but did anyone tell us that the standard of success is the amount of joy we feel? Knowing joy is the signal that you have connected with your higher presence and found the path, the purpose, the frequency that was intended for you. When you become an energy match with your destiny you become a magnet for more fulfillment, intelligence and creative expression. In the words of Montaigne, “The surest sign of wisdom is constant cheerfulness.” Shout out praise and gratitude and ignite joy.

Joy is why we are here. We were created so Spirit could express through us and I doubt that “nose to the grindstone,” or “suffering is good for the soul,” was part of the plan.  Kick that puritan ethic conditioning down the road. Even the bible says, “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord …..” If you deny joy you deny the bounty of the universe from flowing through you. Raise the bar. When you dance with joy you dance with the flow of the divine.

  • Ride in the current of joy, inspiration and possibility and you tap into the vein of more.

“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.
Energy — frolicking and eager — that’s who you are ……
we can’t get away from the acknowledgment that you are
Pure Positive Energy that translates into the human emotion of joy.”
–Abraham/Esther Hicks
