Deliberate Joy

ara-delierate-joy

I loved waking up this morning to the sound of rolling thunder!  As I strolled into my office with my mug of steaming hot coffee a flash of distant lightning caught my eye.  For some reason thunderstorms ignite something in me that makes me absolutely giddy with delight.  As I readied myself for my morning commune with my Council of 12 I realized there was something more glorious to this particular day.  I was filled with a sense of joyful anticipation and wondered what on earth could be signaling imminent  manifestation.  To my surprise the Council of 12 responded with one word, “Life”.  I pondered this for a  moment and realized the reminder they were intent on delivering—everyday should offer this excitement, eagerness and anticipation.  It’s who we are.  The sense of knowing we have yet another moment to prefer, to choose, to focus and thereby unfold.  As I allowed this reminder to flood my conscious awareness they offered more.  “You do not need an external reason to feel this way.  If you did you would be a reactionary creator being and not a conscious deliberate creator.  Enough of what you least want is created in every moment just by your reaction to what your external circumstances dictate.  This is not joy.  This is not who you are.  This is why it never feels good. Be joyful in the knowledge that the river of life is you; is your breath; is your power, which is your focus; is your thrill, and your experience of this lifetime. Live this totality of you and cherish each moment knowing that each moment has the potential to be just the way you want it to be.”  Yes.  Yes, was the only word I could find that fit the moment.  The Council of 12 rippled the resonation, “Deliberately and consciously saying ‘yes’ to Life is enough as it will deliberately open the door to your joy.”  I love my life.  ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher
