Joy

“When you are joyful, and I know in spite of the serious faces that you are indeed joyful, then you have some idea of All That Is. When you allow yourselves to be free and use your abilities you will learn it. When you perform some task without effort and take joy in the task, you will have some slight idea of All That Is.


No god ever created sorrow. All attributes projected on God are your own. You create your own responsibilities. No god ever created the environment in which you live. God gave you powers of creativity. Life and consciousness are joyful. Allow yourself some joy and find peace.”



“Joy, faithfully followed, can lead you to the inner vitality that dwells within yourself and, hence, to All That Is.

If you understood and felt the joy within your own being, you would have no need of questions. You would know without words. If you would allow yourselves the freedom to meet, not some great teacher, not to run from teacher to teacher, but if you could meet the vitality within one cell, even one molecule of your body, you would have no need for questions.”



“True spirituality is a thing of joy and of the earth, and has nothing to do with fake adult dignity. It has nothing to do with long words and sorrowful faces. It has to do with the dance of consciousness that is within you, and with the sense of spiritual adventure that is within your hearts.

That is the meaning of spirituality; and as I have told you before, if I could I would do a merry dance about the room to show you that your vitality is not dependent upon a physical image. It is not dependent upon your youth, it is not dependent upon your body. It rings and sings through the universe, and through your entire personality. It is a sense of joy that makes all creativity probable.

So do not think you are being spiritual when you are being long-faced, and do not think you are being spiritual when you berate yourself for your sins. The seasons within your system come and go. The sun falls upon your face whether you think you are a sinner or a saint. The vitality of the universe is creativity and joy and love, and that is spirituality. And that is what I shall tell the readers of my book.”



Seth, Jane Roberts
