Spiritual joy is a subtle excitement. Compared to the excitements of the day-to-day, outer world, some people would liken spiritual joy to an inner peace.
According to physics, there are two types of excitement. One type increases activity, such as increasing the volume of a sound. The other type – the one we are referring to here – raises the frequency. Spiritual excitement is the experience of a higher frequency of consciousness than normal.
A great example of this natural spirituality is, actually, dolphins. They have a high IQ, live totally in the Now, and they haven’t even read Eckhart Tolle’s book!
They’re so much fun to be around because they already possess fourth-density consciousness. The very same fourth-density consciousness into which the human race is evolving.
When you meet dolphins in the wild, out in the ocean, and they turn their attention towards you, something changes. All of a sudden, you’re not sure if you’re dreaming or awake. This is your first big hint that dolphins think and function in fourth-density instead of the usual third-density of human consciousness. Humans visit fourthdensity consciousness mostly at night when they enter the dream state.
Dream state, fourth density, dolphins, joy, happiness – it’s all connected. Dolphins do not go around looking somber and sincere. They do, however, jump for joy at every possible opportunity. And they live in the Now.
So, if dolphins exist in fourth-density consciousness, and that is where we are headed, then why not learn from the ready-made example that performs somersaults before us? It’s not just a playful attitude. It’s an example of a pure, fourth-density flow of consciousness.
It is no accident that following your inner joy brings you to experiences that are in tune with your intended destiny in this life. Destiny is something that you plan at the level of soul consciousness (fifth density) before you are born. Your destiny is simply a plan for the issues that you wish to address in this particular lifetime.
You can stick to the plan and unfold your destiny beautifully, or you can wander off-track like people sometimes do and waste opportunities for learning from experiences which could have been yours.
Living your life ‘on plan’ requires inner contact – regular meditation sessions – and the willingness to listen and respond appropriately to inner promptings. That means putting regular meditation sessions first on your priority list of things to do every day. Once you get into those regular, inner-connection sessions, you will experience the joy of being in tune and on track with your life’s plan.
Inner joy is really a refined type of excitement.
It is also your birthright.
