Joy is more than an emotion; it is an energy that radiates from your whole being. You cannot be partially joyful; it is an all or nothing proposition. Our call is to praise God in song with unrestrained passion (loud songs of joy). For God is the ruler over our lives. The earth manifests the changes in our consciousness and therefore it is the last level on which spiritual changes take place. At this point, God has given us dominion over our thoughts (peoples and nations under our feet). Our heritage is control over our mind, the creative force in our experience of the world.

spiritual path, our lives and experiences move in cycles. Initially, there is a time of rapid advancement in which we have a lot of activity going on and our progress feels very real and measurable. These times can be experienced as a high because we are in the flow and we can feel it with every fiber of our being. We feel the Presence and Power of God in a tangible way. These are the times in which we are acutely aware of Divine activity in our lives.

Green is term we use to describe those who are inexperienced and childlike in understanding. But “green-ness” is critical to a fresh perspective and new understanding. Although many of us desperately cling to the “same-ness” and stability in our lives, living is about change and transformation. If we fight to stay the same, we find everything continues changing around us. It is in the new that we are best able to embody those childlike qualities, we desire. When we can drop the facade of expertise and knowledge, we allow ourselves to just experience what is. The excitement and anticipation in facing the unknown is palpable.
