The greatest joy comes from being one with the creator

May 29th 2023

On the grand scale of joy – for yes, joy, like many other states of mind, exists on a scale that has different degrees or levels – one level of joy comes from eating, another from breathing, another from walking, another from reading, or singing, or kissing your beloved, and so on. On this scale, the joy that tops all others is the joy that comes from being one with the Creator. The Creator has given all creatures the possibility of experiencing an infinite range of joys, but He has reserved the supreme joy for those who achieve union with Him. Once a human being has achieved this union, they are able to radiate the light of the Godhead, to manifest it consciously for the benefit of the whole world, and to help others and show them the way. This represents the highest degree on the scale of joy.*
