1017 7a The Path of Joyful Surrender

1017 EG

7a We now move to the higher levels of the twelve steps to attaining God Consciousness. Interestingly, joyfulness is both a practice in itself and the result of spiritual practice. As a practice, joy is built upon learning how to recognize and let go of negative or agitated mind states. Thus, this is not the joy of being elated, but rather is the result of resting in a quiet mind state, as discussed in this section.
