This morning I attended the first of four classes offered by CSL-Prescott entitled “A Consciousness of Joy.”
It has never been lost on me, and I have always appreciated, being given the first name Joyce. However, I cannot honestly say that I feel joy on a regular basis. Hence, my hope in participating in this class is to come away with tools for accessing my joy more readily and easily.
Happiness is related to the outer world and dependent on circumstances; it is fleeting. Joy is an inside job. It is related to Spirit, is of Spirit. I feel complete when I am experiencing joy. I also know that when I feel joyful, I feel deep gratitude. Joy occurs in the present moment, where Spirit is.
