GOD is the PRINCIPLE that contains all PRINCIPLES. JOY is one of those PRINCIPLES present in ITs entirety at every point in space all at the same time.
In John’s gospel, Jesus prays his disciples and those who hear his message will experience the joy he knows. I share in Jesus’ joy as I remember I am expressing joy from my DIVINITY.
My ability to express love, life, wisdom, and all other qualities based on PRINCIPLE is limited only by my willingness to live from my spiritual nature. I am DIVINE and my DIVINITY is identical to the DIVINE everywhere and in everyone.
The joy Jesus described remains with me no matter what is happening around me because it is not based on any outer thing or person. My joy is derived from the PRINCIPLE of JOY.
