It’s a takeoff on the “you too happy” premise. You know the one where some attempt to wipe the smile off your face, steal your joy because, “you too happy.” When you become a master highest level of existence code breaker like I am, you understand that what they are really saying is, “You’re happier than me.” It makes them uncomfortable that you are able to exist in another state and want to help you in understanding that life is a tote that barge, lift that bale experience. And that is the TRUTH. For them. We cannot infringe on another’s free will and choice ever. I don’t care how enlightened you feel you are. But we don’t have to live that experience either.
The fallacy is that most seem to mistake joy for happiness. More to the point most don’t really know the difference, use them interchangeably when in fact they are mutually exclusive. Yes like most things in life, when you’re confused, it breeds confusion. Happy is usually dependent on something external. Joy is. The once upon a lifetime interactions that once irritated me now bring joy to the MAXX! It’s so crazy. I mean one of my best boys recently asked me, “Doesn’t anything upset you?” And of course things upset me but the joy in life remains.
Those mentioned in the first paragraph, which thought me too happy and came to knock me off my square now come to get some. That’s right. They come to be in close connection with my joy, so they can first and foremost know what it is, and next kind of “feel” joy through me and come to appreciate the “feel” that joy has to it. Now that in itself is what pure joy is to me. The joy of sharing my joy with others. As the text language might say, “OMG!”
Joy in me is an innate thing. Even in the cesspool life, the joy never went anywhere. I mean it’s a joy that my eldest has a Day Spa in Chicago and is getting a Master’s in Chinese Medicine. It’s a joy that son has a beautiful woman that loves him and is doing well in that L.A. lifestyle. And the hidden joy is my youngest, which is just so wise and so grounded and so willing to teach me what she came here to teach. It’s a joy to have been with their mother, an awesome woman and really good soul. And then there is the joy in the Lord. The peace, the fulfillment that I know and experience each and every day that becomes more and more of an expanded experience in God. Then there is the over the top joy that I get from being me.
Then there is the X-Tend-A-Hand Ministry, where the Executive Director is Rev. ViMatice Jackson. I am the Chaplin. More Joy. Christ International Ministries; Happy And Free With Bobby And Bri. More joy with my Pastor Rev. Dr. Sabrina Ray. And the joy that still comes from my television outreach on Chicago Cable Television, “Eating from the Tree Of Life.” I’ve been off the air for 5 years after running for 10. People still point and say, “You Rev. Bobby.” Big Joy, I eat it up. All this to share that I’ve got joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.
