Joy, A Most Effective Catalyst

Here is how to be joyful: upon the arising, turn to the infinite One and, instant by instant, turn again to the infinite One, again and again, in all things giving thanks; in all conditions rejoicing. Turn again to the infinite One and rest in that peace which truly the world does not know. Joy is a living energy as powerful and as effective a teacher as sorrow. However, it demands of the seeker a self-imposed discipline of the personality which looks beyond ease and comfort and energizes and exhorts the self again and again unceasingly to rejoice, give praise and offer thanksgiving to the infinite One.
As we offer praise, prayer and thanksgiving, we do become more like that deity to whom we speak, and who speaks in silence and power in return.
-Q’uo, June 19, 1994
