Bounding Joy: Becoming more in tune with the Creator

Be the Banjoy!

From the Akasha, by way of the School of Metaphysics in Windyville, Missouri
Christmas Eve, 2012

"...We see that at the present period of time there is a kind of longing that this one has for a greater realm of experience, particularly in regard to this one developing a more creative element within the self. Would suggest to this one it would be of benefit for this one to allow the imagination to wander toward different scenarios that this one toys with but does not really let the self imagine, and from this basis for this one to choose that which recurs, for we do see that there are recurrent desires, recurrent ideas, that have come to this one from time to time that this one has pushed aside or pushed away because this one thought that they were not important or not relevant, and we see that although it is not necessary that this one fulfill these, as long as they keep recurring these could be a means for this one to expand, to explore, and to develop the capabilities of the self in ways that could serve others as well as the self. We see that this is particularly true in regard to a type of artistic creativity, what this one would consider to be right-brain types of activities. This could aid in filling out what this one is already capable of in bringing a kind of spiritual depth to this one — a kind of joy that is often missing — and it would be encouraged for this one to explore this.

We see within the emotional system this one has certain parameters that this one allows the self in terms of the emotional expression. We see that in regards to what has been given, in this one’s willingness to explore a more creative or artistic element in the self, this would also give this one a kind of permission, as he would see it, to allow a greater expansiveness of the emotional expression. ... We see that contemplating or meditating upon joy would be of benefit to this one, and it would be suggested that this one allow this. There is a certain judgment that this one has that this is not important, that it is frivolous, when in fact it is a means for this one to become more in tune with this one’s Creator."

"This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
— Psalm 118:24
Once when we were passing each other Swamiji planted himself in front of me and said "You should be happier." I replied "I'm sure you're right, Swamiji. Almost everyone—" Swamiji cut me off: "No! No! YOU should be happier!"

"You should be leading lives of joy — deep inner joy in the truth! There is nothing in the world more delightful, nothing more fascinating, than the experience of truth."  — Rudolf Steiner

Life is an open book — read it and weep for joy
