Spiritual Practice: Choice Point: Choose Joy!
This activity is designed to increase your awareness of the fact that Heaven is a state of consciousness -- one you can choose at any moment regardless of what is going on in the world around you.
As you find yourself facing some task you dread, or a situation that is stressful, pause and consciously choose joy. (I know, this sounds way too simple -- until you put it into practice! It takes a firm and strong level of conscious effort to actually choose joy in the midst of something you dread or something that is uncomfortable or difficult.)
You might adopt a mantra such as: "Since I have to do this anyway, I choose to do it with JOY!"
Notice the change it makes, not only on your own attitude, but on the situation itself. You will be surprised at how much easier and more productive it will be when you approach it from an attitude of joy.
