The PRINCIPLE of JOY is one of the PRINCIPLES that GOD is. IT is the resource used for all many expressions joy. As I speak words of praise, I am aware of more blessings. When I take joyful action, there is a spring in my step. I infuse all I think, say, and do with joy!
I celebrate the playful joy of every child – including my inner child. I experience the same joy wherever I am – a busy city or the stillness of nature. And then there is the quiet joy of simply being, perhaps the richest joy of all.
I rediscover my joy by taking slow, deep breaths, dipping into the infinite PRINCIPLE of Joy that never runs out. I use JOY to energize and invigorate my heart and life. Being fully DIVINE and fully human is a joy.

I find comfort as I express love.
Saying “I love you” and “I got you” provides comfort for another person’s aching heart and peace in times of uncertainty. Today, I open my heart to loving expressions as a soothing balm for distress or grief.
When I’m concerned about another, I center myself in love. No matter how circumstances appear, I choose love. I enfold them in a sphere of love, encircling them in peace and protection. I know they can order their lives when they lean into their innate DIVINITY.
When I am troubled, I find comfort in the loving words and support of others. I surround myself with those who offer solace in my time of need. I am encouraged by their kindness and compassion.
As we share kindness and love, we hearten souls and bolster faith. We give comfort to ourselves and others.
In the moment I appreciate the beauty of a sunset, in another part of the world, the first rays of a rising sun are lighting the morning sky. The sun never stops shining. Nor does the LIGHT that GOD is.
In his book, The Flow of Life (p. 75), Eric Butterworth said, “… GOD is the light. You are in it. It is in you. It is the reality of you.” God does not have light, GOD is LIGHT. Each of us is LIGHT. Not visible light but the LIGHT of UNDERSTANDING.
Sometimes my thoughts may be so focused on a challenge, I do not sense my LIGHT, my UNDERSTANDING. Then, I breathe out frustration and worry. Breathing in, I remember I am LIGHT. In a flash of UNDERSTANDING, TRUTH illuminates me and shines from my heart and mind.
While I may not be able to control what happens in my life, I am always free to determine how I respond.
Through my DIVINE FACULTY of DOMINION, I have 100% authority over my thoughts, feelings, and actions. Only I decide what to think, say, and do.
If a thought of fear or powerlessness arises, I remember DOMINION as well as the faculties of DIVINE WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, and STRENGTH. They are fully mine whether I’m organizing my day or moving forward after making a life altering decision.
The PRINCIPLE of DOMINION is always mine to claim and use. Knowing this, I move through life with quiet confidence. I am secure in myself and in the knowledge I am fully DIVINE and fully human. I expand my life into a field of limitless possibility and potential.
