“I began to discern what brought me true joy. Not just a moment of pleasure, or satisfaction, or sense of security, but which elicited true joy. I discovered that what always brought joy was when I was willing to surrender into the awe of mystery. . . .” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 14, Page 175)
We too can experience true joy when we let our mind and heart rise upward to the true mystery of God. Jesus is here laying out a pathway for us to follow, too.
We need to be aware when we are feeling joy as opposed to simply the earthly happiness. Joy is on a higher plane, more akin to heaven on earth than our usual egoic world. We have flights of happiness when the ego rules, but we don’t experience true joy—joy that lasts and warms our heart constantly.
Ask today to experience this true joy. Lift our mind and heart to the mysteries of God. Experience awe in His presence.
We will have a day like no other.
