May 26--Joy Here, Joy There

The soul is here for its own joy.  --Rumi

    Abraham, via Esther Hicks, tells us we are here for joy, expansion and freedom. Jesus healed so many, each a joyful event. We are on planet Earth, a playground of infinite beauty to explore. Mother Earth sustains us, and we have folks to love and to love us. We have all the makings for a joyful soul. 
    I do not believe we are here to suffer. That certainly may happen, because of the extraordinary blessing of free will. But suffering, a "dark night of the soul," can lead to even more joy if we choose to use it that way. It is possible to come through difficulties with an even greater appreciation for one's life, strength, and yes, joy. 
    I have also witnessed when earthly joy has run out--when a person's quality of life is such that they are ready to transition. I get that. I believe that we move on to infinite and eternal bliss, so that our souls continue forever in joy. 
    There is no shortage of joy anywhere, ever,
