Inner Joy Journey: A Magical Quest

An Online Class by Savitri

The Seven Steps
Experience your portal to inner joy.

Listen--perhaps you catch a hint of an ancient state not quite forgotten; like a song whose name is long lovely was the song, how wonderful the setting where you heard it, and how you loved those who were there and listened with you. --ACIM

Come! And remember who you are.
7 steps in seven weeks
Delving into yourself and finding your light being, your source of joy.
Nothing is exactly as it seems
Because reality is often hidden behind illusions.
Joy rises out of the peace that passes all understanding.

it could start like this: Following your light pathway by the sea

"There is a light in you which cannot die;
whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified
because of you.
All things that live bring gifts to you,
and offer them in gratitude and gladness at your feet."---A Course in Miracles

Or It could start like this: Living Happy in a Faery House

"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild,
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
than you can understand" --W.B.Yeats

Or like this: Loving Laughter

"I have had a most rare vision.
I have had a dream—past the wit of man to say what dream it was.
Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream.
Methought I was—there is no man can tell what....
The eye of man hath not heard,
the ear of man hath not seen,
man’s hand is not able to taste, his tongue to conceive,
nor his heart to report
what my dream was."
--Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
(Bottom speaking after a sprite had turned him into a donkey)

you are the creator of your inner joy journey.
Your divinity is your guide
