Joy's Way by Katie Davis, Author, "Awake Joy"

Have you noticed the space around "I"? That space is joy's way. You are welcome to continue creating things to try to fill that space, as some sort of future compensation, but things and circumstances within time is not where joy resides. In the meantime, you needlessly suffer, while hoping for personal empowerment that at best can only be partial. Sooner or later, it will be recognized that the space around all of your accumulations is the direction and it originates inside you. Essence is deeper than "you and your thoughts" and more profound than "your attention." It is the pure attention of the loving Heart; the only omnipotent power of the universe; LOVE.

So now, or later, it doesn't really matter, as long as you don't mind suffering and world hostility. I understand that you may still choose to cruise in a yacht on the surface of the ocean and remain oblivious to the charm of the undersea world that is brilliantly colored with tropical fish. However, you will not become acquainted with the beauty of the coral reefs and the underwater song of the humpback whales whining in the distance. You also have the option of diving in to explore the unfathomable depth of the inner Ocean. Yachts are fun, but that fun fades and becomes no more than a past mental image. It pales in the joy of your ineffable beauty.
