We wish for you to know that joy is not regulated to those big AHAS you now look for to proclaim to yourself and others that you are moving into or have moved into the New Age. The joy of the New Age is not about streamers and glitter. It is a sense of well-being, an absence of chaos if you will.
You have probably assumed that the New Age would produce a joyful chaos to replace your current chaos. Nothing could be further from the truth. Chaos is not peaceful and thus it cannot be joy – at least New Age joy. You have so attuned yourself to chaos that you have difficulties understanding how chaos will no longer be part of your life.
Are you not comfortable rushing around with tasks, even joyful tasks, that need to be completed before you can move into your next chaotic adventure? A wedding is touted to be a joyful event. Yet most often, the bride, the groom and their families become enmeshed in thousands of details that produce little other than anger, pain and fear.
Joy is not about racing around completing this task and that task with the hope that the end result will produce joy. Joy, like the New Age, is about moving easily into a place of contentment. More like watching a new puppy play, than fearing that your infant will become ill when exploring a potentially dirty floor.
Perhaps you wondering what we are speaking of for you feel that you are filled with joy throughout your day. We beg to differ. Place start jotting down the times your joy is tinged with fear. Joy and fear are not compatible – a concept you have accepted intellectually, but most likely not emotionally. Study your actions and your feelings – and you will understand that you do not yet accept the joy of which we are speaking.
This New Age transition is not necessarily easy. You have read in the past few weeks from numerous sources that you are releasing many issues from past and current lives – that you are creating a clean historical slate.
Now you need to start filling that slate with new actions and attributes. Not the least, or the most easy, of which is how to live in and accept joy. Not the joy tinged with fear, anger and pain you have accepted for eons. But true joy that requires no clarification, no reductions of ”just in case” and certainly not joy clouded with thoughts of “when will the other shoe drop?”
Do you suppose a new-born limits her joy of being fed with fears that she better enjoy this meal for it might be her last? Do you suppose that a toddler giggles at your silly antics with fears that she will be abandoned? Of course not. Infants and toddlers experience joy with expectations that joy will continue or that a better joy will be available any time she feel like experiencing it.
It is time to think and act like a child in so many ways. Not the least of which is to experience joy without past fears. Your joy is no longer limited by what others think, what could happen or memories of past traumas. That part of your life and being is over. Please allow that thought to process for a bit. It is an extremely important concept for you to accept…and expect.
It is time to proclaim to yourself and others that fear is of the past. Walk into the New Age with your head held high and expectations of pure joy, rather than fears of the past. The past is no more.
But then, the future cannot be – at least as we have long proclaimed – if you are unwilling to let go of your fears and allow joy, true joy to permeate your being. Let the sunshine in!
So be it. Amen
