“In an exuberant state of joy, you are at peace with everything about you . . . there is no thing unconquerable, no thing unreachable.” — RAMTHA
Neuroscientists have discovered that humans reverberate to the actions and emotions of the people around them. This unspoken but ongoing communication is why someone yawning can make you yawn even if you slept ten hours the night before. It’s why dancing on a roof with my fellow Course students makes me so happy.
I probably sound like a broken record, but there is nothing like compadres on the path of enlightenment to encourage, celebrate, and challenge personal perceptions.
It’s why I’m part of two possibility posses in my hometown. It’s why I’m here in Mexico, getting loved up by this beautiful Course in Miracles community.
This Divine communion makes me buzz with joy and love and creative ideas. Which creates even more joy and love . . . and makes me wonder, Why doesn’t everyone do this?
Why doesn’t everyone spend their time talking about possibilities? Why doesn’t everyone move towards the love? Move towards the joy?
Adults, it seems, have a million reasons for declining an offer to enjoy themselves. Kids never turn down fun. They’re constantly in search of the next good time.
When was the tipping point? At what point did we begin rejecting the chance for joy and glee? At what point did we quit talking possibility and start talking problems.
When did we learn to pinch off our gorgeous, clear love energy? When did we allow but a small percentage of who we really are to radiate? When did we get so busy fixing our problems that we forgot to notice the incomparable possibilities?
What I’ve discovered is that when I join with others in possibility, when I commit to being open to love and joy, I don’t even have to look for ACIM Lesson 95. It’s right there, the knowing that I’m forever united with my one Self.
Once again today, I commit to having fun. I commit to being overjoyed. And I commit to letting my light shine.
