“In Thy Presence is Fullness of Joy.”
— Psalms 16:11
“Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
She gives most who gives with Joy.”

— Sathya Sai Baba

Where there is no Joy, there is no Creation. Know the Nature of Joy.”

“The secret of Happiness is Freedom. The secret of Freedom is Courage.”
— Thucydides, 460 – 395 B.C. (Greek Historian)
“There is no Fear in Love. But perfect Love casteth out Fear.”

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”

“Rise Creator and Stand. For upon you worlds rely.” This message is loud in my head this morning as I wrap up today’s newsletter.
Abraham – Hicks has told us that “the only true measure of success is the amount of Joy we are feeling.” Florence Scovel Shinn taught us that Success is a system in which Courage is an important element. The Bible tells us that there is no Fear in Love and that perfect Love abolishes fear. Thucydides wrote that the secret to happiness is freedom, which also requires courage. The Upanishads spoke of the eternal connection between Joy and Creation.
All of these teachings point to a marriage of qualities that come into focus at this time. Courage (confidence) and responsibility coupled and balanced with creation and joy. It is reminiscent of the complete energy of Great Creator herself. Joy, Creation, Courage, Responsibility, Freedom, Confidence, Passion, Choice, Love. They are all intertwined and are the essence of God.
It takes courage to step up and create. Whether you are creating a dream, a vision, re-creating yourself. Fear is not a part of this. Humanity was not created from Fear. Nothing we consider Divine was created from Fear.
“I’m too old.” “I don’t have the money.” “The economy isn’t conducive.” “I don’t have time.” “I’m a mom.” “I’m alone.” “I can’t because of _____.” None of these statements are made from a place of courage, confidence or creation or joy. And none come from a state of Truth or Freedom. Sadly these chains are not imposed by anyone except by oneself. When will we learn that we are Creators? It does not matter what we are given. We will create with rocks and sticks. We will summon unto us those who have the missing pieces we need. We will draw from the energy of the Universe and express. We have everything we need in our very Souls. We are not trapped, unless we choose to be. We are Creators!
I touched on the subject of thinking about what our true Joy is back in May. You can go back and take a look. Our process over the summer so far has been in preparation for the window we are moving into. If we desire to be Joyful, then we must have the courage to take the step, and embrace a state of confidence and knowing, and simply Create. Step into your I Am of Creator. Step into Freedom. Step into Joy. “Live Your Truth.”
Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde at least through August. Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo on August 3 and Jupiter goes retrograde in Taurus on August 30. These are not reasons to hold back. In fact, I think these retrogrades will help facilitate the process. Know that it requires of you more focus, and your full soul’s attention and passion. This is the window to step forward in the process, to create, to reap, to be bold and unwavering in our dreams and desires. To be joyful. To exist in a state of creation vs. created. To exist in a state of Creator.
“Create your speech to one another in Love.” Remember that God spoke and It Was. Let your speech be clear and unwavering.
Take the steps, even if it does seem messy at first. We have a window coming later that will allow us to clean up the details and put everything into a sense of order. But jump in, create the steps, stand and be confident, be counted as responsible now. Be the first one to dare to get messy, and without fear, without worry about failing or “messing up.” Check your attitudes at the door. And don’t use “responsibility” as an excuse for “can’t.” That’s not how this works. This energy says you have a responsibility to Create! That you are not responsible if you do not! The energy of responsibility here is very wholesome and holistic in that it does a balancing act and takes into consideration details as well as end results. It considers the health of all the corners of life, satisfying our needs in all arenas: emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and all the other “als.” Contemplate what it actually means to be “Creator.”
This time is about reaping benefits through joy and creativity. Not just for you, but for everyone you are responsible for. And today, you are responsible for your community, your world. Whatever that means in your life. Your circle. You have a responsibility to your peers, the people you interact with anywhere. A responsibility to seed the energy in your life to facilitate it in others as well. You have the responsibility to stand in confidence, be true to that core of who you really are, even if it means you take on leadership for awhile to do it, so others are supported in their own confident standing as well. Who are you? Step into Creator. You are your own infinite Universe. If you are the first to step up to the dais, you will soon be joined. Do you see the network of Light?
The arch for the plateau jump has formed. It is before us.
