Inner Journey: DID YOU FIND JOY?
“The future, higher evolution will belong to those who live in joy, who share joy, and who spread joy.”
— Torkom Saraydarian
Joy, as the energy of love, is the highest vibration on this planet. Everything in the universe is energy; it can be measured and reduced to vibrational frequencies. It’s a universal law that as we think and feel we vibrate, and as we vibrate we attract.When we are in the high joy vibration, we attract what is for our greater good.
The Ancient Egyptians saw Joy as a sacred responsibility. They believed that upon their death, the God Osiris would ask them two questions: “Did you bring Joy?” and “Did you find Joy?” Those who answered ‘yes’ could continue their journey into the afterlife.
For at least the next week or two, ask yourself these two questions each and every day:
•Did I bring joy?
•Did I find joy?
“Man loves because he is Love. He seeks Joy, for he is Joy. He thirsts for God for he is composed of God and he cannot exist without Him.”
— Sathya Sai Baba
A Note from the Universe

“Tenderness is greater proof of love than the most passionate of vows.”
-Marlene Dietrich, 1962
What we do carries more weight than what we say. If we mean what we say, how do we show it? When we’re talking about love – it means being gentle, and tender, and loyal and available. Think of how we respond to a sleeping baby – we cuddle and whisper and walk softly. It’s in our nature to show love by being gentle.
