We cannot find a better, more joyful retreat — than in our own souls.
Our souls know that God is not only Mother and Father but God is the One from whom there is no separation.
God is the breath that unites our souls with our body temples.
Breathe in and breathe out– remind yourselves that you are one with all souls, one with all breaths, all energy, all joy, all of God’s breath — breathing back as us.
When we remember to be conscious of the joy of God’s divine breath, every cell, every atom, every molecule of our body says Yes! — and our entire being becomes a prayer.
Focus your attention at the center of your forehead — above the space between your eyes — what we the third eye — the place where we align with the energy of the Soul.
The soul is everywhere and nowhere.
When we are centered in the Soul, we see with its eyes.
We see past the limitations of space and form and shape and even species, and Joy appears as the wide open dimension of pure possibility.
The silence is God’s voice.
Joy is our redemption.
It is said that all beings are interconnected, and that we only need to tune into the silence within ourselves to truly understand this.
Jesus said love one another as I have loved you. In John 15:11, Jesus says I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
We need to recognize that we all have a divine purpose — and ours may seem minimal or even trivial — or perhaps completely non-existent, but we are all here to bring joy.
If you pay attention, the soul will teach you how to stop fighting and be a recipient of God’s good.
Look in your hands.
The universe of endless source is always putting crumbs there, always putting morsels of substance, spiritual manna to feed you.
But most importantly — Spirit always give you the opportunity to feed others. Jesus told Peter three times, “feed my sheep.”
Don’t worry so much about getting something for yourself — but to bring joy to others.
Maybe it’s forgiving someone who is really difficult to forgive.
Maybe it’s being silent and listening to someone who really needs someone to listen.
Maybe it’s holding back a harsh word and instead speaking a word of encouragement.
Maybe it’s opening a door — and allowing someone else to go first.
Maybe it’s giving a really big tip — despite your budget.
Maybe it’s simply writing a letter each day to let someone know how they’ve made a difference in your life.
Whatever it is, keep giving it each day — and the unnoticeable beings of life will show up in unexpected places to reward you with unimaginable manna of life-altering goodness.
