The Joy of Spirituality

Spiritual Joy Is A Subtle Excitement

 

Compared to the excitements of the day-to-day, outer world, some people would liken spiritual joy to an inner peace.

According to physics, there are two types of excitement.  One type increases activity, such as increasing the volume of a sound.  The other type – the one we are referring to here – raises the frequency.

Spiritual excitement is the experience of a higher frequency of consciousness than normal.

A great example of this natural spirituality is, actually, dolphins.  They have a high IQ, live totally in the Now, and they haven’t even read Eckhart Tolle’s book!

They’re so much fun to be around because they already possess fourth-density consciousness.  The very same fourth-density consciousness into which the human race is evolving.

When you meet dolphins in the wild, out in the ocean, and they turn their attention towards you, something changes.  All of a sudden, you’re not sure if you’re dreaming or awake.  This is your first big hint that dolphins think and function in fourth-density instead of the usual third-density of human consciousness.  Humans visit fourth-density consciousness mostly at night when they enter the dream state.

Dream state, fourth density, dolphins, joy, happiness – it’s all connected.  Dolphins do not go around looking somber and sincere.  They do, however, jump for joy at every possible opportunity.  And they live in the Now.

So, if dolphins exist in fourth-density consciousness, and that is where we are headed, then why not learn from the ready-made example that performs summersaults before us? It’s not just a playful attitude.  It’s an example of a pure, fourth-density flow of consciousness.

It is no accident that following your inner joy brings you to experiences that are in tune with your intended destiny in this life.  Destiny is something that you plan at the level of soul consciousness (fifth density) before you are born.  Your destiny is simply a plan for the issues that you wish to address in this particular lifetime.

You can stick to the plan and unfold your destiny beautifully, or you can wander off-track like people sometimes do and waste opportunities for learning from experiences which could have been yours.

Living your life on plan requires inner contact – regular meditation sessions – and the willingness to listen and respond appropriately to inner promptings.

That means putting regular meditation sessions first on your priority list of things to do every day.  Once you get into those regular, inner-connection sessions, you will experience the joy of being in tune and on track with your life’s plan.

Inner joy is really a refined type of excitement.   It is also your birthright.

The Joy of a Soul Connection

When we tune into the soul level of consciousness, we find that there is much more to achieving personal happiness than to anything related to external events.  Real joy comes from within, from an unending source which is divine in origin.

The creative will of the Divine Father aspect of God merged in perfect union with the everlasting love of the Divine Mother aspect of God together fill the universe with total, unadulterated, blissful joy!

The greatest discovery of a person who regularly practices meditation is that, one day, the door will open to this unending supply of blissful joy.  On that day, the spiritual seeker knows, beyond all shadow of any doubt, that God lies silently within all things and all consciousness.  We are a part of that Divine Oneness, and it is through the joy of soul consciousness that we realize this connection.

Remember that your soul consciousness is your complete, inner consciousness.  Your daily, conscious awareness, on the other hand, is focused on the outside world for a purpose.  The true purpose is so that we can find our way back to that from which we came, even though we are spiritually “blindfolded,” so to speak.  The game of life on Earth is played so that we can experience the rediscovery of that joyous connection to the oneness from which we originally came.

All the happiness in the world pales in comparison with the supreme joy of that inner connection.  Soul-inspired joy is lasting happiness.  It has no beginning and no end because it is always there, just as God is always there, within each and every one of us.
