Joy is the Proof

French sage, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, wrote this profound statement of Truth: “Joy is the proof of the Presence of God.” Since God is Omnipresent (Everywhere Present) and everyone is part of God, everyone should have joy all the time. However, most people seldom have joy. Thus, de Chardin’s s statement only becomes completely True is we add three words:“Joy is the proof of the awareness of the Presence of God.” 

Looking at all the conflict, corruption and violence in the world, you may wonder how anyone could ever experience the joy of God – still, millions of people live in joy everyday, for they  have transcended the false projections of their minds and risen into Divine Awareness. A Course In Miracles states, “If God’s will for you is complete peace and joy, unless you experience only this you must be refusing to acknowledge his/her will.”
