Connecting to JOYFebruary 26, 2014
Are you consistently enjoying each day no matter where you are, whatever you're doing? As far back as I can recall, I have been hot on the trail of exploring how to create and connect fully to JOY and the art of livin' in the FUN Zone. But not just in fleeting moments sprinkled throughout the years. No siree! I knew that was not enough for me. I really, really wanted to discover the secret of living life to the fullest - every day in every way. I was on a quest to figure out and understand what it takes to be consistently happy and create a life filled with passion, purpose, fun, excitement and meaning.
My path of discovery has been, and continues to be, a moving, insightful, interesting and never ending journey of expansion. Looking back over the many years I have been traveling this course, I now see clearly that each experience was just what I needed to add to my learning and growth along the way. I can remember exclaiming on several occasions, "Where have you been all my life? This is amazing!" when a particular piece of information, a person, or a book would show up. And it would always present itself at precisely the right time for me to 'get it'.
Each experience was divinely positioned to come to me so that I could weave them all together to produce my own beautiful and unique tapestry that is the story of my life. A one of a kind work of art, a vast array of incredible moments and memories - just as yours surely is for you.
Yep, the universe loves to conspire on our behalf and has our backs in every moment! I didn't always know or believe that, though. I've come to realize that it's part of the journey of awakening. We come across knowledge, insights or wisdom at the rate we are able to take them on, comprehend their value and integrate them into our lives as truth. Sometimes we need to try them on for size to see if they're a good fit before we make the final decision to own a new belief.
Remember, if at any point you find a new belief is not producing the goods as expected, you are free to shop around a bit more until you find something else that does. Keep in mind that there is really no such thing as a wrong choice here. It's all part of the game, part of the fun in creating, and part of the JOY in discovering what serves and suits you best.
We came here to experience many different scenarios as the creators we are, one with the energy of All That Is. As a conscious creator, you realize that every experience always has something to offer, a take away – something of value in each life encounter.
When it comes to creating JOY and livin' in the FUN Zone, one of the most worthwhile understandings that I have come to know and wholly embrace is this: if you're able to really be present in the moment and can accept all energy/experience just as it is – there's nothing else to do. Nothing else to discover, to learn, to figure out. You've got it – you're there. Yippee! Woo-Hoo! And Hallelujah!
When you're happy, excited, blissful, content, secure, fulfilled or any other fitting sentiment you're experiencing in the current moment – you've arrived. As you CHOOSE to experience life in the present, it means that you're not, for example, stuck in the past complaining about whatever or worrying about what may or may not happen the future. You're completely engaged in the moment and enjoying the experience of wherever you are. As you continue do this consistently, you are paving the way and setting the stage for more and more moments of JOY in the now. You can only ever create in the moment, so it's highly beneficial to be truly present as much as you possibly can.
Once you've made this a practice, eventually it becomes second nature for you to find your way back to that peaceful space, if you happen to find yourself veer off track once in a while. And who hasn't experienced a little detour here or there? I happily discovered the more I focused on being JOYful in the moment, the more I became aware of being able to stay there for longer and longer periods of time.
I've come to know and appreciate that it's always up to me and totally my job to make it happen. Of course there have been challenges along the way and I found that it was extremely important to look at the speed bumps that popped up from time to time. I've been fervently committed to finding the tools and techniques that work best for me to smooth out the energetic roadblocks. And when I ask for help, just what I need to know always seems to find me at the perfect time.
It is my happy claim to declare to the universe this is who I am, this I how I choose to live. I now willingly and thankfully accept that I have the power and the responsibility to create what I want. And if I'm residing in the place where I am in my JOY in any given moment and livin' in the FUN Zone – well, what could be better than that?

Quotes to Ponder
The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive you will see it.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
Life is supposed to be fun. No one is taking score of any kind, and if you will stop taking score so much, you will feel a whole lot better - and as you feel a whole lot better, more of the things that you want right now will flow to you. You will never be in a place where all of the things that you are wanting will be satisfied right now, or then you could be complete - and you never can be. This incomplete place that you stand is the best place that you could be. You are right on track, right on schedule. Everything is unfolding perfectly. All is really well. Have fun. Have fun. Have fun!
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.
Contemplate the power you hold to connect fully and create a life of JOY in all areas of your life while livin' in the FUN Zone.
Mark your calendar for my next teleseminar, Tuesday, March 4th at 5:30 PM (PST) and join me for a JOYful evening filled with inspiration, information and more! Woo-Hoo!
