“Every person is free. You may have created an arena of work, and based your life upon certain accomplishments and forms. The path of joy is learning not to be caught by the details of these forms. It is learning not to be trapped by your own creations, but to be uplifted by them.
If you have created a job, a relationship, or anything else that is not bringing you joy, look inward and ask why you feel you must be in a relationship with anything or anyone that does not bring you joy. Often it is because you do not believe you deserve to have what you want. There is no such thing as “deserving” on our plane. You all have been given active imaginations; they are your doorways out of where you are. Yours can be a doorway into worry, if that is how you use it, or it can be a doorway into joy.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Living with Joy”
