Dear Joshua,

What are my greatest joys in this life?
(I’d like clarity on what they are so as to develop the confidence to live them out professionally.)

That said, I am an editor and speak English, French and German fluently. If I can ever be of help editing/proofreading/writing or translating anything for you, please reach out. I would love to “repay” you for your generosity and your precious assistance.

Many thanks.

Dear Jessica,

Your greatest joys are always found within. No one can tell you what they are. This would influence you. Your parents, teachers, peers and society as a whole, have led you to believe that certain things are good and therefore you must feel joy in these things. They have told you that certain things are bad and you must not enjoy these things. However, you are all unique. What brings you joy (to the extent you feel joy), is unique to you. No one can tell you what that is because no one knows you. This is even true of you. You do not fully know who you are and so the joy you can feel now is limited. What you perceive as joyous, is often indicated by others. What you feel as bad or wrong is also influenced by others. In order to authentically find your joy, your passion, and your soul’s purpose, you must discover who you really are.

Who you really are, Jessica, is a limitless and magnificent being of pure positive love and acceptance. Who you are being at any moment in time is a limited version of that. All of the limitations are self-imposed. You are currently processing your limiting beliefs and so you are in the practice of removing some of your limitations. You are on your path toward becoming more of who you really are. You are creating momentum toward love. Most humans are creating a momentum toward fear, because they are not doing the spiritual work. Their limiting beliefs are becoming stronger over time. Their realities are being created around these limiting beliefs. They are growing smaller and smaller. You are growing larger and bolder.

Prior to your birth, you set your intentions for this life. In those intentions was the desire to expand in joy and to discover your passions and your soul’s purpose. These desires are always calling you. This is how you found our teachings. This is why you are taking our course. You are ready to discover who you really are and in that discovery, everything will be revealed to you. It is natural. It is what you intended.

The only possible way to keep your joys, passions and purpose out of your reality is by succumbing to fear. It is the fear that you are not worthy. It is the fear of loss. It is the fear that your joys are not appropriate. What will other people think? All of these fears come forth due to the existence of limiting beliefs, but they are irrational. As you continue to meditate daily, to become aware of who you really are, and process your limiting beliefs, you will reduce the intensity of those fears and you will come into alignment. In alignment, you will receive inspiration. You were inspired to ask for the course. Gary was inspired to send it to you. You were inspired to other actions that led to this question being asked. Do you see how things unfold. Two weeks ago, this was not part of your reality. Now it is. How did that happen?

You are much greater than you think you are. Your joys are much deeper than you think they are. Your passion is much closer than you think it is. Your soul’s purpose is right around the corner. If you continue to release fear and act on inspiration, they will be revealed to you. If you continue to doubt your magnificence, fear will prevent you from taking action and they will remain concealed. You see, it’s all up to you, isn’t it?

With our love,
We are Joshua
