The Nature of the Universe, the nature of God, the nature of Source is JOY.
I remember the amount of joy and playfulness that I had when I was a little girl. I'm sure you remember that too.
But as we grow up we are conditioned to be so serious.
We get so caught up in life's circumstances so easily that we even forget how it feels to be joyful.
We insist on thinking about the past or rush into the future.
In my case, I tend to look at the future a lot. Always waiting for the next thing.
But I know that one of the reasons why children express so much joy is because they live in the present moment.
So lately I've been practicing bringing myself to the present moment with all of my being.
Right here. Right now.
And what's been happening is magical: Joy visits me.
I say magical because I don't really do anything other than letting go and being fully present in the moment. Just by dropping everything else I can tap into joyfulness.
“Worry is not a spiritual practice.”
- Michael Beckwith
Have you ever asked yourself how much time you spend worrying?
As Rev says: “Worry is not a spiritual practice.”
We invest so much time trying to improve ourselves, trying to get closer to Source, trying to align with our highest self.
But we end up canceling all that work with worry.
The answer is because it's a human thing to do.
We don't need to be hard on ourselves about it, we just need to be mindful and learn how to stop worrying so much and begin trusting more.
Now, I know it's easier said than done. I know you could be going through really difficult situations where not worrying seems impossible, but here is where trust comes in.
Let me ask you this…
How many times you didn't know how you were going to resolve something and suddenly, out of nowhere, something happened?...
