You cannot judge the value of a life by its quantity. It is by the joy that you are feeling. The more joyful you are, the longer you live. Let yourself relax and breathe and be free and be joyous, and romp. The optimum physical life experience is to have plenty of things that stimulate you to desire, and an awareness of the way you feel, so you're reaching for thoughts that feel good—so you're wide open, so you're tuned in, tapped in, and turned on. We promise you, the timing of your death is always chosen by you.
Excerpted from the workshop: Chicago, IL on September 07, 2002
Joy is really the aim in life. You always hear about the poorest person in the world also being the happiest. It's not really about the items and everything that surrounds you. It's about the joy you experience. And that Joy can't be dependent on someone else either. For instance, it can't be "I'm experiencing joy because I love Joe". You can always tap into the joy you have inside. That's another of the "Kodak moments" I talk about all the time.
The most ideal form of joy is that which you feel "knowing" you have an item but it hasn't materialized yet. Remember there is a difference between manifestation (which happens when you think about something and have told the Universe you want that thing) and materialization (which is when it actually shows up in your life as an object/thing). The greatest joy is when, once you've manifested something (given the Universe your order), feeling the joy that you experience knowing it's yours - BEFORE it even shows up.
Try it this week. Be joyful whenever you think of having something. Give appreciation/Gratitude to the Universe for bringing it to you even before the physical materialization. In that appreciation and gratitude experience the beautiful joy you have knowing that you've asked and it's been delivered. Don't second guess the fact that it hasn't materialized yet. Just accept that it's on its way
Write and dialogue about this concept and your results this week.
