What a perfect time (as would any other) to share this message from Abraham, Esther Hicks:
“Everything exists for joy. There is not one other reason for life than joy. We’ve got nothing to prove to anyone, because nobody other than All-That-Is is watching. In other words, we’re not trying to get brownie points from some other galaxy. We’re not trying to get someplace else; we’re not trying to get it done, because there is no ending–we cannot get it done. Everything exists for the purpose of joy in the moment.”
Everything that we do, we do because we think that in the doing of that, we will feel better; feel good; have joy. We work to earn money so that the money will provide the things that we think will cause us to feel better; feel good; have joy. It’s the way we choose things that we want–indeed, it is desire itself. That’s the reason there isn’t anything wrong with whatever someone might want, because, in their thinking of it, they imagine that it will cause them to feel better; feel good; have some amount of joy.
Of course, you know where this is going, right? There is a short cut. We can find ways to be joyous at the beginning instead of the end result. How brilliant! And, the way to take that short cut is via appreciation.
As you go through your day, the last minute shopping, the preparations for the feasts and parties, working to serve those who are doing their last-minute shopping, dealing with all the increased traffic, or whatever you are doing today, if you will find one thing to appreciate, that will lead to the second and the third and more. As your appreciation expands, joy flows. Appreciation and joy are the same vibration. Love and joy are the same vibration. Injoy your day today, in whatever you choose to do and wherever you choose to be.
And. . . Don’t Forget To Breathe!
Spread Some Joy Today–via a trip to the State of Appreciation.
