"The answer is simple: Seek only joy in your life.
"I realize that sounds like an impossible task to many on the earth plane. But it is not impossible. It may be difficult at first, especially if you've been habitually focusing on what does not bring you joy.
"But you can move into a state where most, and even all, of your present moments are filled with joy. And you can achieve that in this lifetime.
"But you cannot do it if you insist on focusing only on what most of your world focuses on. It behooves you to pay attention to what you're paying attention to. If you read your daily newspapers, for example, you're paying attention to what most of the world is focusing on. And just how does that make you feel? Certainly not joyful.
"You have to move out of the mainstream to be joyful. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes to feel good. You have to be relentless in your insistence that you will choose only experiences that feel good. Whether we're talking about relationships, jobs, places to live - it doesn't matter.
"What does matter is that you choose only experiences that feel good. That you make a deliberate, conscious choice to experience only joy in your life.
"The more you focus on joy, the more joy the Universe will deliver to you. The more you focus on what's less than joyful to you, the more the Universe will deliver that to you.
"The more joy you experience it this physical lifetime, the more you remember who you really are.
"Joy is not only the key to remembering who you are. Joy IS who you are."
