What is joy? It is the closest thing to the oneness of God. If we but touch upon this oneness for an instant, we experience joy. For such is the instant feeling of anyone who has been at-one with God. That is why in our deepest darkness, in his harshest pain, we can touch that place within ourselves which feels joy. There is within each human being, each human heart, a room, a place where joy abides, and if we can find this place, we can reside in joy for as long as we dwell there. Those things in life which are closest to God for us, bring forth this joy, and touch a chord which vibrates with the same vibration as joy.
Like attracts like, and like responds to like. Joy overflowing like a cup full of water is a good image of this, as this joy can seep into the saddest experiences, and dispel the pain in a truly miraculous way. To live in constant joy would be the ideal state of humankind - would, indeed, be heaven on earth. Dwelling in joy would bring a change of vibration in the human body that little else could equal, or compare to. Just imagine. And that, you can imagine, that, you can have - we would say possess but the closer word is be.
Dancing upon the sunbeams of God’s love, and sliding down the rainbows of joy, would be a good meditation for those who wish to be healed of any affliction. We can contribute to our own healing, indeed, our attitude is a very important ingredient. Not only in wanting to get well, but in expecting to get well, and in making an effort to seek that healing; all these will speed the cure.
You have heard that we create our own dis-ease. This has almost become a natural state of human beings. The world is infused with so many vibrations of dis-ease and darkness that humanity, at some level, thinks we would be uncomfortable without them. We have grown used to these feelings of discomfort, and they almost have the same effect as addictions; they are familiar, and we are hesitant to give up, that which is familiar. Our consciousness, and the direction we have taken has brought these vibrations into such prominence, and a change in our consciousness and in our direction, can just as easily abolish them.
