What Is True Joy?

The joy you feel from getting a new car or your sport team winning is not God's joy. This is an excitement, and ego adrenaline. If your sport team lost, you would feel angry or depressed, controlled by your emotions. This up and down, being tossed like a rag doll and subject to events outside of you, is not of Him, and it is not a way to live life.

His joy is always there, regardless of the outer circumstances. That is the joy of the Kingdom, your inheritance. This is a joy that comes from Oneness. How do you differentiate between ego excitement and true joy? If your sport team loses, you may be disappointed, but the joy of life and having His Presence will still be there and you will soon forget about your team losing. And true joy is always accompanied by large gratitude.
