Joyful Living

Step 7: Live a Life of Joy

Every choice you make either brings you closer to your joy or further away.  You’re either creating a life you love or creating a life you try to escape from.

You can’t always chose or change your situations; however, you can always control how you respond to them and the choices you make.

When you get crystal clear with what you want out of life, what your purpose is, what you’re being called to do; then joy is a natural by product.

Find it.  Create it.  Cultivate it.  Joy.

Your connection to God/Source/The Universe/ The Divine/*Your Word of Choice* is your direct path to joy.  Regardless of your situation, the challenges, the out right crap pile you’re trying to crawl your way out of; your Higher Self/Divine connection is what will make it all worth while.

Your connection to The Divine (my word of choice) will help you determine your purpose and calling.  It will be a like a lighthouse guiding you through the storm.  It’s only when we struggle that we grow but we don’t have to struggle alone.  Our tribe is apart of our Divine Family.  Our Creativity is our expression of our Divine within.  Our Personal Power is the spark of the Divine that drives us to keep moving forward.  Our Center of Love comes from feeling the Divine Love within us.  Our Inner Knowing comes from listening to our Divine Self.  It all came from God and will all return to God.

This final step is about flowing into your Divine Connection to feel your joy in all your endeavors.  I’m not saying that you shouldn’t feel your negative emotions.  Those will always be there.  If you; however, maintain your connection to the Divine you’ll be able to feel those emotions without getting lost in them, understand there is a purpose to it all, and find comfort when all else seems to be falling apart.

Connecting to your Divine can be felt in a church/temple/synagogue, your home, outside, in a body of water, skydiving, in the arms of those you love, anywhere you are as long as you silence your mind and open your heart.

Once you feel it you will never not feel it again.  It is always there.  The more you stay open to it, the more opportunities you’ll have to feel the joy that is life.  Let your Divine connection guide your choices.  Decide to fulfill your purpose.  Follow your calling.  Feel Your joy.
