Happiness is on a roller coaster with sorrow in the world of ‘opposites’ based on the belief in separation, upon which the world of dreams [most believe is reality] manifests. It is an endlessly swinging pendulum that sweeps the entire arc between 1 and 59 on the clock of illusions. The lower the lows the higher the highs … it is all relative to the precise distance one travels in the realm of delusions.
JOY is Who You Really Are, another name for the ONE SELF. It is NOT something you strive for and acquire like happiness but the True Nature of Your ‘essence’. You, the REAL YOU, has never NOT been JOY, even in the deepest and darkest despair the flatline of JOY persists. IT cannot be found in the dream world dominated by the mind and its predecessor – ‘thought’. The closest that the theater of masks and disguises can come to JOY is a moment of neutrality or balance like a ball thrown in the air just before the ascent turns to descent.
That is the moment our world-dream has now entered for a brief season [2,000 years in clock time] and many will rejoice as this Happy Dream unfolds, but know that no matter how beautiful the contrast with what you may have experienced most recently … it is still NOT real and that the REAL lies within.
