My greatest joy is my oneness with God.
God is always with me, for God and I are one. Because of my divine connection, all of the beautiful qualities of Spirit, such as joy, are also found within. Joy is a constant state of being that never changes, unlike happiness, which is dependent upon outer conditions. Joy is of the spirit and depends on no condition. I can access this divine gift despite any circumstance, even amid distress. I connect with the Christ Consciousness through prayer and meditation. When I know God, I know the joy within. For when I experience my oneness with God, I realize no greater joy exists.
Although you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy.—1 Peter 1:8
