Joy Of Being = Our Natural State
We have but one job, here on earth (or wherever we incarnate). Yes, only one, which is to be in our Joy Of Being, to consciously access that. It is always there, ever available. It’s a choice, however, whether we experience it or not. After all, we have free will.
THIS is what is destroying The Matrix, setting us free.
This is quite difficult for those heavily identified with 3D life, the body-mind (costume). Though we are the awareness within that, & containing that, yet we have the right to limit ourselves to 3D. It’s a choice — & one we’re heavily programmed to make.
Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote — 2021/02/11
Any time you have physical discomfort of any kind, whether you call it emotional, or physical pain within your body, it always, always means the same thing: “I have a desire that is summoning Energy, but I have a belief that is not allowing so I’ve created resistance in my body.” The solution, every single time, to the releasing of discomfort or pain — is the relaxation and the reaching for the feeling of relief.

Why “heavily programmed?” Perhaps because that makes us so much easier to manipulate, to control, to lock down, I don’t know.  It’s enough to know about the programming, as then we begin to see through it; and as we see through it, we transcend it.
The programming just falls away, we know not when, where, or how.
Within our true Being, the innate awareness or consciousness that we are, is this ever-present Joy Of Being. It’s amazing, to know it’s always present. Some even call it Presence. By its feel, we can tell it’s divine. As we choose to align with that, with our JOB, we Know Source/God is Love. We Know that by partaking of it.
Things all merge into one, the One. That becomes our direct experience, one that words can never contain, being the linear, time-space limited things that they are, here in 3D. Words can only point, unable to deliver the experience.
It’s easy to tell whether we’re doing our JOB at any point in time by how we feel, by what we’re sensing. Though our 3D being doesn’t appreciate or enjoy some of the experiences that come its way, we do; Who we really are does. We Know everything is a divine gift, whether in the direct experience or in the gifts it eventually brings, seen via 20/20 hindsight.
When we’re outside of that innate, deeply internal Joy, our programming is the likely culprit.
Our Planning BEFORE Incarnation
As we identify more & more with our true Being, the flow of energy shifts. As we consciously choose to do our JOB, the divine flow increases, our frequency rises. Blockages show themselves, then fall away on being seen, but generally only noticed via hindsight. 
Let’s be realistic — Realistic. Before entering our current 3D form/costume, we made certain choices, planned certain experiences with divine ends in mind. We Knew what we were doing, how both the blessings AND the challenges of the upcoming life were divine gifts; chosen to bear desired fruits, fruits admittedly dependent on our use of free will in 3D.
So the seemingly bad things are not bad. Who can accept this? Who can drop all blame, anger, & resentment in favor of adopting Byron Katie’s attitude, as expressed, here:
“Everything happens for you, not to you”?
We have a LOT of letting go to do, don’t we? All of that programming, consisting of our Belief Systems (BS), is in the way, keeping us from our real JOB. This Joy is not of 3D, so the 3D being doesn’t access it, though it can experience it. Clearly, the first thing to ditch is our self-identification as the body-mind. We are ever so much more that it’s a hilarious comparison.
Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote — 2021/02/14
If your dominant intent is to feel joy while you are doing the work, your triad of intentions — freedom, growth and joy — will come quickly and easily into alignment. See your “career” as one of creating a joyful life experience. You are not a creator of things or a regurgitator of what someone else has created or a gatherer of stuff. You are a creator, and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience. That is your mission. That is your quest. That is why you are here.

Moving from head to Heart
It’s our innate Power that’s problematic, here. What we choose is what we experience, but we’re not consciously aware of most of our choices, since they originate on subconscious & unconscious levels. This is deep & must be heard via Heart, not the mind. Heart Knows. The mind only guesses. It does a good job of many things, but those are 3D things & this goes well beyond.
Identify with Heart, with the inner Being, call it soul/spirit/consciousness or whatever works for you. “Heart” works for me. In some wonderful, magical way, our connection with Source/God is accessible via the central chest. I won’t even try to explain it, as that would be to slip back into the mind’s clutches, LOL, & it doesn’t matter, anyway.
It just is what it is.
Mind fights hard before surrendering
Be aware that your mind will rebel. It will do all it can to give you a very hard time at your JOB. Why? Look at it from the mind’s perspective. It’s been in control of your life, your relationships, simply everything that’s you & yours, and for as long as you can remember.
The mind does not want to surrender its power, its position of dominance in your life. The mind is actually quite arrogant, thanks to the ego, the phony self that grew while we weren’t looking. Puffed up in its very high opinion of itself & its beliefs about reality, it refuses to go down without a fight.
To the mind, this JOB thing is a challenge to its very existence. It is taken aback, at first, as it sees the inner Being begin to take charge. It resists, thinking it’s in danger, that it may be eliminated, somehow. While the mind’s initial moves are obvious, it gets quite tricky once those moves are spotted & defeated by You.
The mind is not used to being observed.
Did you know that almost all fear is mind-generated, based on our beliefs & how they apply to what we encounter? The rest of our fear is either body-generated, like getting out of the way of an oncoming car, or telepathy/empathy, sensing others’ fear. 
Getting out of our own way
In Asia, they’ve long specialized in seeking out the inner emptiness that silences or minimizes all beliefs. They have a reverence, a respect for what simply Is. It is what it is, & they know not to fight that, not to lose the self in resistance; how not to be the dog chasing its tail.
How, then to do our JOB, to be in that Joy consistently?
It largely consists of getting out of our own way. No one is stopping us. No one can prevent us, can control us to the extent that we can’t do our JOB. Yes, we’ve long been taught to give our Power away to others, to money, to situations, to all sorts of things.
Just because that’s the way it’s been doesn’t mean that’s the way it must continue.
So we take back the power of our free will, using it to get out of our own way, to see, then see right through those old habits of belief. They were so comfortable for so long, but their time is done. We made use of them. Now, let’s move on.
Being the Observer
If your response, here, is fear, step aside sufficiently to be the Observer. Take note of the source of the fear: the mind; the BS (Belief Systems). Make a choice: to maintain them or to let them go. You are not that. You are ever so much more, but as long as you choose alignment with the lesser things, you thereby choose their inbuilt limitations.
Okay, yes, we were tricked into so very much of what’s going on, both here, personally, but also the mess that’s playing out in the world. We were endlessly lied to & manipulated, okay? Let’s admit it & just let it go. Hear this: it just is what it is, & only the foolishness of a Don Quixote fights it.
Just L.E.T. G.O.
Step into the Allness, your oneness with the All That Is. Allow That to reign. It’s a choice. Be crucified on the precise center of the cross of the NowHere, where time & space intersect — just Be, trusting Source/God to guide & work through you for the best possible outcomes, ones that your mind cannot fathom.
You become the Observer for a while, amazingly impartial. Things just don’t affect you in the same way, nor will they ever again. You’ve changed, shifting from the chess piece on the board to the chess player, but now to the one observing it all.
It’s all hard to explain, but the mind does NOT need to understand, so let’s get good at setting it to the side.
Beyond the Observer into Oneness
As we get into the flow of our new/old JOB, we flow into the Oneness more & more. Eventually, the whole Observer thing just falls away, replaced by our active sense of just Being. We get it, now, that there is no two-ness of any kind in Source/God. Just This, just Is-ness, just what is.
We may retreat from society for a while to let this settle in. Few there are who grok this, who share our JOB. who have gone through or are going through these major changes. We’re more silent, now, as well.
At this point, our perspective on this & simply everything has drastically changed. We don’t recall doing any of that, not really understanding how it all happened, but we’re good with that. It’s actually quite beautiful sometimes to not know.
Unbelievable, huh? Yeah, but only to the mind, not at all to Who we truly are as Source/God, as Source-in-form, one of the infinite perspectives on/of the Whole. We are soooo blessed by all of this that our life is much easier, now, much more peaceful, becoming ever easier to InJoy, though from the outside, i.e., to others, it may not look that way.
It’s even a bit Biblical, as God is both our rock & our refuge, but that rock also breaks away all false identity clouding our 3D experience, including Belief Systems & the wily, arrogant ego-mind — when we allow that, when we choose it.
“To know that you do not know is the best.
To think you know when you do not is a disease.
Recognizing this disease as a disease is to be free of it.”

 “Heavily programmed” — Just look at the crazy [s]election, oh my. Then look at the current CV-19 nonsense, how people are responding. Those unwilling to buy into the BS (Belief systems) are certainly fewer than those willing to comply (though our willingness begins to fade, worldwide).
 Why only noticed via hindsight? Because we are not the do-er, we are not doing these things, Source/God is. We’re not the divine Dancer, we are the divine Dance being done by Source in the flow of the endless, eternal NowHere.
 Not only our fear, but all negative emotions are mind-generated or sensed in the local environment & allowed in by the mind. It’s time to master our own mind.
