What Happened to the Joy?

Actions arise out of godspace, first in reaction to the emptiness of pure existence, then in reaction to the absolute joy of being. Manifested life is this joy taking form. Wrapping itself within the first veils of form, a godbeing is imbued with joy. As the veils of manifestation become denser, the joy diminishes. By the time human life emerges, this joy has become a shadow. Nevertheless, despite their attachment to the limited pleasures of their existence, human beings also respond to their roots in the godbeing, and their actions, even when not based in the godbeing’s intent, seek to bring back this unconditioned joy.

Actions that arise out of godspace meet no resistance because they are in accord with the godbeing’s intent. There is an ease and pleasure about them that has nothing to do with the fruits of action. If you are struggling with your actions and are making judgments about their value, then you are experiencing a conflict, not between values of the veil, but between human motivation and godbeing intent. Here is not only an opportunity for you to make discernments about motivation but also to explore the subtle fabric of joy.
